The Kitchen Table   Ephesians    day 39

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

We have an enemy that is defeated but not dead.  And this enemy functions in the obscure “this present darkness”.  He no longer rules the world but he rules through the world.  The devil and his demons rule through the perspectives, privileges, and powers of people.  But people are not our enemy, the prince of darkness is our enemy.  Through agreement he works with authority in our lives.  He wants us to see and hate people but he hides in the perspectives, pleasures, pain, and paranoia of people.  We have an enemy that is defeated but not dead.  Don’t fall into his trap of hating people rather than him.
