Throughout the life of Christ there was a war going on in the spiritual realm. At His birth, we read in both the gospels and Revelation 12, there was battle between the forces of God and the forces of Satan. When Satan lost that battle, He sought to destroy the Messiah in order to preempt the plan of God. When that was foiled, his next target became those who were the followers of the Lamb. At the arrest of Christ, we see this war being intensified and addressed by Christ. Jesus said to those who had come to arrest Him, "this is your hour and the power of darkness." Throughout this passage we see the inferiority of the power of darkness and the superiority of the power of light. The power of darkness is limited in time and limited in authority. As well as the spiritual nature of the war, we see the personal nature of the war through the life of Christ and that of Peter. Jesus not only was attacked by His enemies but He was deserted by His disciples. Peter was targeted by Satan, but he was torpedoed by himself. Are you engage in the war? Are you a soldier of Christ?
