"Blood & Soil" is Not Flesh & Blood

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:11-12)."

We’re not wrestling against racism.
We’re wrestling against generational curses.
We’re not wrestling against white supremacists.
We’re wrestling against national curses.
We’re not wrestling against ignorance.
We’re wrestling against familial curses.
We’re not wrestling against bigotry.
We’re wrestling against personal curses.
We’re not wrestling against hatred.
We’re wrestling against the demonic.
We’re not wrestling against men and women.
We’re wrestling against the Kingdom of Hell.
We’re not wrestling against political ideologies.
We’re wrestling against the Father of Lies.
We’re not wrestling against history.
We’re wrestling against Satan.

"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth,
and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one
and take the helmet of salvation,
and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication (Ephesians 6:13-18, emphasis mine)."

We will not overcome by hand-wringing, and shaking our heads, and wielding our own torches of fury and words of hatred. We will overcome evil by being what evil does not want: LOVE.
We must BE LOVE.
We must ACT in LOVE.
We must PRAY in LOVE.
There is no other way for one who calls Jesus “Savior”.

Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.
