Supernatural: Principalities and Powers
There is a lot of interest in supernatural or mythical beings. We have a lot of misunderstandings regarding them. The Bible has a lot of references to supernatural beings.
1. Believe in all kinds of mythical beings
2. Don’t believe at all in supernatural beings
3. Believe only in the Biblical supernatural beings but they attribute to them too much power and too much activity. They begin to worship the beings.
Supernatural God with a supernatural love for us. His love us greater than anything. His love is more faithful than anything. 1 John 4:9-10 God’s love is beyond anything that we can comprehend.
What is the one thing that we cannot forgive ourselves? We need to take that to God, His love can conqueror all. We need to trust God, that He can take care of all.
Other supernatural players.
Man – the low being on the supernatural totem pole. All of nature is in man’s domain. But there will be a time when there will be a flip flop and we will move up the ladder.
Since at a time in the future we will judge the angels we need to be good to each others.
Angels and demons are at the same level. Demons are simply fallen angels. Satan is simply a fallen angel.
Satan wants mankind to think he is more powerful than he is. As powerful as God. But he is simply a fallen angel. They want to preoccupy our attention on any thing other than God.
Demons only have authority over us when we allow it. God is in complete control and when we serve Him, demons have no authority over us or power. Satan can’t touch us. Yes he is like a lion seeking to destroy us but he is powerless because of what Jesus did on the cross.
Nothing is more powerful than God.
What should we do?
Don’t get caught up in worshiping anything other than God.
Build up our relationship with God.
