God Says Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth
Satan is alive and well on planet earth today.
As Prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2), his silent army of demon invaders swirl through the air. Around us lurk those infernal warriors of the Kingdom of Darkness.
These are not science fiction aliens.
Rather, as super strong extra-terrestrial intelligent beings, their aim is clear.
Their shocking strategy is so powerful, normal humans would pale if aware of it.
These twisted demon hordes are even more deadly than a terrorist’s attack.
They are locked on course.
Their target is the human mind, the control center of every human being on the planet.
Paul gives the insight that explains our struggles throughout our earthly lives as we look at Ephesians 6:16. Think about what we have read so many times:

Now, apply the simple methods of Bible study. How many truths can you find in this one verse?

Spiritual; spiritual; spiritual.
Does “Spiritual” Sometimes Sound Distant & Hard to Grasp?
God’s Word shows us how God wants us to live.
If we want to learn how to extinguish Satan’s fiery darts, God shows us through the lives of those in the pages of Scripture, how they did it.
