Christians Under Attack: Spiritual Battles Seen Through Spiritual Eyes

christianbattle2

Imagine if you can see the spiritual warfare and battles between demons and Christians through spiritual eyes. This is how I see that war and battles fought in the fields of our minds.

Europe at one time was strong in the Lord, not without faults, but nevertheless, they held to the Word so let’s see that with spiritual eyes.

It was very early in the morning with fog all over the place. The Christian’s camp was behind a wall of long thick trees for protection against the enemy’s arrows. Christian watchmen were in place and you could hear absolutely nothing but the wind. From the distance, a watchman saw a small light heading to his direction. Amazed by this light he stayed still until it was too late. The arrow with fire at the tip struck the man’s neck and bleeding from his mouth he quickly ran to another watchman close by and died in his presence.

The other watchman with his eyes wide open heard the battle cry of demons running toward the camp to slaughter the Christians so this man (the watchman), ran for dear life to the camp to warn the Christians of an impending attack. Immediately a call to arms went throughout the camp and Christians were putting on the full armor of God. All the believers got in battle formation. They were like the sand of the seashore with beautiful silver shiny armor with each name of the armor engraved in each piece of armor. Christian soldiers who were assigned to prayer went ahead of the army of God knelt down in prayer to the Lord of lords and King of kings Jesus Christ, to ask for His protection and strength. The demons got in battle formation and a call went out for the demon archers to get ready. Arrow tips ignited with fire and the command was given to fire. The Lord was there with the Christians fighting their battle and a strong wind blew from the Lord so strong that all of the fiery arrows were blown right back to the demonic army who had to take cover from their own arrows. While they were taking cover, the Lord gave the command to attack and all the Christians ran to meet the dark army in battle. The cry was so loud it made the demonic army go into confusion running in all different directions. There was such a great slaughter that day only a few demons made out of the slaughter. Christians were victorious that day because the Lord fought their battle and won.

We win battles because we keep God’s Word and live according to it but now since the Devil knows he can’t do a frontal attack, he has to do a stealth one to kill us spiritually from within by taking us away from God’s Word and disarming us.

Numbers 25:1-3
While Israel was staying in the Acacia Grove, the people began to have sexual relations with the women of Moab. 2 The women invited them to the sacrifices for their gods, and the people ate and bowed in worship to their gods. 3 So Israel aligned itself with Baal of Peor, and the Lord’s anger burned against Israel.

Numbers 31:16
Yet they are the ones who, at Balaam’s advice, incited the Israelites to unfaithfulness against the LORD in the Peor incident, so that the plague came against the LORD’s community.

The verses above show how Satan destroys the believer in Jesus by hitting him from the side instead of the front so he won’t suspect it.

Islam is a device from Satan to bring fear and political correctness to shut the mouths of Christians speaking God’s Word which is a Satanic tactic so people won’t hear the truth. Homosexuality is being used by Satan to make Christians abandon God’s moral law in their lives which is found in the Word of God and the Devil is making so-called Christians through pressure from society conform to unbiblical views by accepting homosexuality as not being a sin. Europe is destroyed and Satan’s focus is now America. Whoever abandons God’s Word will get deceived and their soul destroyed.

Verse By Verse Through Revelation (16:16-21)

16 So they assembled them at the place called in Hebrew, Armagedon.

This verse points back to the prophecy that was mentioned in Ezekiel 38:1-8, where the Muslim world and most likely Russia, will come down to attack Isreal. Isreal today has natural gas which is as valuable or even more than oil.


17 Then the seventh poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the sanctuary from the throne, saying, “It is done!”

Now the scene switches back to the angel with the seventh (last and final) bowl. The bowl was to announce that it is accomplished, that is, God’s wrath on humanity with the last one as seen in verse 18.


18 There were flashes of lightning and rumblings of thunder. And a severe earthquake occurred like no other since man has been on the earth—so great was the quake.

The announcement of the seventh bowl brought about the worst and never seen before, the biggest earthquake known to men.


19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the Great was remembered in God’s presence; He gave her the cup filled with the wine of His fierce anger.

“The great city” is a reference to Babylon the Great.

The phrase “the cities of the nations fell” could either mean that the earthquake devasted the nations that surrounded the city of Babylon as well or that financially their economy fell alongside the destruction of a city who bought most of their merchandise.

The phrase “Babylon the Great was remembered in God’s presence” shows that God will not forget those who kill His saints and deceived the world through false doctrine and encouraged them to follow other gods.


20 Every island fled, and the mountains disappeared.

The earthquake was so grand that it moved or sank islands and made mountains crumble.


21 Enormous hailstones, each weighing about 100 pounds, fell from the sky on people, and they blasphemed God for the plague of hail because that plague was extremely severe.

Hailstones weighing 100 lbs could penetrate the roof of people houses. There was no refuge found from God’s wrath for those in its direct path. Instead of repenting from their sins (for those who witnessed it), the opposite occurred.

Insight: Hailstones

The probability of surviving the plague of hailstones was slim to none.

Joshua 10:11
As they fled before Israel, the LORD threw large hailstones on them from the sky along the descent of Beth-horon all the way to Azekah, and they died. More of them died from the hail than the Israelites killed with the sword.
