Powers Behind the Scene

Title: Powers Behind the Scene
Text: Eph. 6:12
[Eph 6:12]  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
  • There are powers behind the scenes in every major step of man, to kill, to steal, and to destroy.
    • [Joh 10:10]  The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
  • There are times you must rise up to pray against these powers, so that you can achieve what heaven has destined for you.
Main Topic
  • Abraham – Powers attempted to hijack his testimony by trying to exchange the child promised him for someone else.
  • Moses – Pharaoh was not operating by himself.  There were powers behind the scenes pushing him to act erratically against Moses
  • Samson – the powers behind the scenes made sure they used his weakness to capture him and derail his destiny
  • Daniel –
    • They attempted to derail his destiny with food, it did not work.
    • Powers behind the scenes put him in the lions den because they knew what his future holds, but it did not work
    • Powers behind the scenes withheld the angel that was to bring answers to his prayers, it did not work either.
    • [Dan 10:12]  Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
    • [Dan 10:13]  But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
  • David – Too many to list.  Starting with the lion, the bear, Goliath, different battles, etc.
  • Jesus – The devil himself showed up to tempt Jesus, in an attempt to derail His destiny – Matt. 4
  • There are powers operating behind the scenes.  You can’t see them, but you see the evidence of their existence.
  • It is only by prayer and fasting that you can war against these powers.
