1. GROUND LEVEL WARFARE:
2. OCCULT LEVEL WARFARE:
3. STRATEGIC LEVEL WARFARE:
Now I want to talk about the different levels of power among the demonic. Our warfare comes in many levels. This is certainly not to induce fear, but awareness. Why? Typically, believers spend so much time thinking about the soulish natural realm and the temporal, that the spiritual realm and the eternal goes unnoticed.
Ephesians 6:12 ESV 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 1:21 ESV far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.
Ephesians 3:10 ESV so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.
In Ephesians 6:12 I will give the definitions for the different powers according to the Strong's Concordance.
