FLESH AND BLOOD BATTLES
The minute you make people your enemies, you leave the protection of My family of love and you place yourself in the family of hatred and prejudice. You become flesh minded and flesh motivated. My Holy Spirit told you that to be motivated by the flesh is death and destruction. (Romans 8:13) He said that your flesh is at enmity with Me, refusing to obey My impulses and guidance. So when you begin to battle with the flesh of other people, opposing them, blaming them, judging them, then you are in a full fledged battle which will lead, inevitably, to what your real enemy desires, which is death and destruction for both you and the people you oppose. (Ephesians 6:10-13)
Making people your enemies instead of making the devil your enemy will always result in destruction in some way to you. Jesus said to always pray for your human enemies, to do good to your human enemies, to forgive your human enemies and to bless your human enemies. In other words, treat them as your friends. In doing that, you rob the devil of his pleasure of cursing your lives. In loving your human enemies in obedience to Me, that love places you firmly in the benefits of My kingdom of love. In being obedient to the devil by making humans your enemy, you place yourself firmly in the curses of his kingdom of hatred. You must constantly choose which family you will serve. (Deuteronomy 30:19)
It is a constant battle between the devil motivating your flesh and My Spirit motivating your spirit. When you are tempted by the devil to battle with humans, immediately begin to pray against that demon of deception that wants you to battle with a human being and bring destruction upon yourself and your family as a result. Pray in the Spirit and pray in the understanding by rebuking the demons for attempting to rob you of your peace, your love and your joy. Continue in your battle with the evil spirits by praying until you know that the job is done and the demons are robbed of their power. In the meantime, bless your human enemies, pray for them, do good to them. In doing that, you rob the devil in another way. You rob him of his power to curse you and the human being who the devil used to snare you with prejudicial thoughts and bitterness against the perceived human enemies.
My children must seek knowledge from Me about the spiritual kingdoms around them, both My kingdom of love and the devil's kingdom of destruction, so that you can effectively battle against the real enemies, the devil and his demons. I said in your battle with your real enemies, the devil, that you must be girded with truth. That means that you must ask My Holy Spirit to reveal to you the power that you have against the devil and you must ask My Spirit to reveal to you the strategies of the devil so that you will not fall for his tricks. (Ephesians 6:14; Ephesians 1;18-23)
I cautioned you to never make flesh and blood your enemies. (Ephesians 6:11-12) When you do, you depart from Me and become unified with evil.
That is why I told you that My Spirit gives you the power to love other people as I love you. (John 13:34-35)
As I told you in My writings, don't return to the pig pen of destruction by opposing people. Instead, forgive, love and seek peace. When you do, you reside in My mansion of love.
Your LOVING Father
