we do not struggle against others near as much as we think we do ,
it was always Him that we cannot surpass or move
or by pass till we see Him face to face and that is what always
changes us and our course Till we are IN HIM and so well Hid in Him
Beautiful Rosered!! So true and humbling.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Hi Legoman ,
I would say that those things are in us that we are stuggling against Him /Word and Spirit of God with ?
Jesus Is the rock of offense and what we stumble over
Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
1Pe 2:7 Unto you therefore which believe [he is] precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
1Pe 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, [even to them] which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
Jesus even said in your law I say you are gods
that wickedness in high places and princpalities is the ego and mini god complex , thinking we have it all figured out , whenin fact we know nothing as we ought ?
we are conformed by God , not ourselves and that is a painful process
When Jesus said make the tree good and the fruit good
or make it corrupt what was He speaking of ?
