The current political climate in the United States is being influenced by demonic activity; therefore, we must be careful not to fight with people in the physical realm when the real problem is demonic influence in the spiritual realm.
Ephesians 6:12 (NCV)
Our fight is not against people on earth but against the rulers and authorities and the powers of this world’s darkness, against the spiritual powers of evil in the heavenly world.
Our struggle isn’t with people, but with the demonic influence controlling them. Many times people seem malicious and hateful, but if you will remember that they are being demonically influenced, you can respond to them more easily with patience and kindness. As a believer, guard your heart against the demonic influence seeking to control you, especially when talking politics with people. Just because I disagree with you, it should never come across to mean that I hate you. In fact, as a follower of Jesus, I must guard against ungodly attitudes and actions at all costs. Hatred isn’t the hallmark characteristic of the divine nature, love is!
The real bottom line is between God versus Satan as each person allows themselves to be influenced by either love or hate. Love influences people, but hate alienates people. Whether you agree with someone or not, political or otherwise, always remember this: Every human being is loved by God because they were created in God’s image and likeness. Therefore, every person has a moral compass inside them that was put there by God, and as a result, they have an innate desire to recognize, follow, and love the God who created them.
The election’s over, now what? Answer: Discern the spirit of strife and division.
Everything is not what it seems because demon spirits are influencing people to sow strife and division. The demon spirit of strife and division operating in the federal government is trying to divide people by filling them with strife. Here’s the good news: Simply recognizing that is half the battle and the other half is, you don’t have to participate in it.
The reason the federal government is trying to divide people is because the only way the government can completely steal your freedoms is by reducing people to the point where their only hope and dependence is on the protection and provision of the government. One of the ways they do this is by demonizing people into groups – for example, black vs. white, men vs. women, and democrat vs. republican. Unfortunately, when we get all caught up in all that, we are playing right into their demonic plan.
