Nato, LGBT, Anti-republicanism. It's a battle of words on earth revealing a war in heaven. They may be mere words spoken through human lips yet beyond the eyes of men, ancient powers are stirred. Peter spoke words in a jail, the church prayed words from the house just down the street, and angels from another realm appeared in the jail. Words move unseen beings.
When David faced Goliath in the valley, it was a battle of words, not swords. The giant cursed David by his gods saying “I'll feed you to the birds,” but David didn’t allow himself to be cursed by the enemy. If David had of agreed with the words of the giant, David would never have fulfilled the unique purpose God had for his life. He refused to entertain those paralysing words from a dark source because he knew that spiritual beings are empowered by faith. Therefore he roared back his declaration of faith in the power of God to save, and God came through.
