The Opposing Forces

The forces involved in the conflict are supernatural. They cannot be seen with physical eyesight, but are real nevertheless. Occasionally, individuals may be aware of their presence in the form of an angelic visitation or a demonic attack. But most of the time the battle is raging unseen in the heavenlies.

The Kingdom Of God vs The Kingdom Of Satan

The Bible gives us glimpses of the supernatural warfare as well as showing us individual warriors on each side.

God's Forces

God's forces consist of -

•  ARCHANGELS

•  ANGELS

•  BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

Angels are mentioned in several Bible passages, including the following :

GENESIS 19:1-15; JOB 1:6; PSALM 148:2; DANIEL 9:21; DANIEL10:5,12-21; MATTHEW 4:11; LUKE 1:19-26; JOHN 20:12; JUDE 1:9

Satan's Forces

Two types of satanic agents are mentioned in the Bible.

•  FALLEN ANGELS who rebelled with satan and were expelled from heaven; these seem to be higher
    order agents than demons and are territorial eg the Prince of Greece and the Prince of Persia
    mentioned in  DANIEL 10:13 and 20


•  DEMONIC SPIRITS variously called demons, evil spirits and unclean spirits
   The most common enemy forces to be encountered by Christians are  demonic spirits.
