The battle

So, I have been reading some blogs and something that popped up was to do with battling and swords etc. And I decided to be lazy and search out old files on my puter for something D or I had written regarding this "battle". I found something suitable that D wrote. . . here goes:

prin-ci-pal-i-ty (prins-pali-te)n.pl. prin-ci-pal-i-ties. 1. A territory ruled by a prince or from which a prince derives his title. 2. The position, authority, or jurisdiction of a prince; sovereignty. 3.

Col 2:13-15
And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

The Truth

He has removed, taken away, spoiled and stripped all princes of their territory, positions, control and authority. These princes are now harmless, have NO weapons, are naked, without power and have been deprived of the means to attack or defend themselves. We, on the other hand, have been given and have received all territories, authority and riches. We are True warriors, have all weapons, are clothed and have all Power. Nothing that comes against us will prosper.

Their armor is a deception and the sword of truth pierces through it.
They seek to mislead, ensnare, betray, delude and conceal or misrepresent the truth. They say that He is not what He says He is. They say that He has not removed, taken away, spoiled or stripped them of their power. They say that they have territories, control and authority. They say they have many weapons of great magnitude and power and that they can defend and attack. They are what they are. Deceivers and Liars. The Truth is not in them.

Jesus Christ is the Truth.

He is the Great One, the Mighty Deliverer, The Great Redeemer, The Regenerator. He has recovered ownership of all things by paying the price of "The Cross". He has put an end to the ruler of this age. He is the Restorer, Serpent Crusher, Slayer of all deception and Bondage Breaker. He is what He is. He cannot deny Himself. He is Truth. I have heard it said, "Walk ye in it". It is obvious, by our actions, how much we believe Him, the Truth. Must we continue to walk in a deception; defeat, Misery, bondage, corruption, lie. "Walk ye in it". Agree with what He has done and He will make your path straight. Walk in agreement and not against Him. Is it by what we do that we can walk in this? Have we removed Him, The Great Deliverer from our eyes and replaced Him with our "self". Self-Righteous, as though we could possibly be the One. It is NOT by what we do. It is by what He has done.. Accept it. Walk in it. Walk according to it. Don't try to earn it. It has already been paid. Do not walk any longer in the lie. Do not listen to the deceiver of the world. Do not base your belief on a deception. Do not try to see with these eyes. See with His eyes. Do not look around you at the snakes. Look at the Cross. It is Finished. Walk in it. He is what He is. Do not be afraid. There is no longer anything to be afraid of.

Isa 54:14-17
In righteousness(Abraham) you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me. Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake. "Behold, I have created the blacksmith who blows the coals in the fire, who brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the spoiler to destroy.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me," says the LORD.

Eph 3:8-12
To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.

Col 1:16-23
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.
And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell,
and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross. And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight--if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.
