"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

2/21/2021, 4:26am by "Chris": That's an interesting perspective, but we still have to deal with Ephesians 6:12, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood...". And verse 11, speaks about withstanding the Devil, who is certainly not of our flesh. This should tell us immediately that our enemies are not from mankind who are flesh & blood, but to the opposite of "flesh & blood", i.e. those of the spirit world. Of course, the evil found in that world, certainly influences man, both the inconspicuous lowly citizen right up to those in positions of power on Earth, both of whom are certainly 'flesh & blood'.
Does your understanding of "wrestling not against flesh & blood" hold another meaning to you?

5/25/2014, 5:25am by "Toni": There is evil and wickeness in high places and the devil is in the background orchestrating it all. We are fighting against evil men who are in power, being directed by Satan. The devil is called the god of this world. God has given him authority to control this world. He wanted to be God, so God is allowing him for a time to rule the earth, but his end is coming, and he and all those who bow down to the devil, will be cast into hell for ever. Spiritual wickedness in high places can not be seen with the physical eye. This is why we must be quickened spiritually and die out to the flesh, so we will be enlightened. This is a spiritual warfare, so we must have on the whole armour of God to do battle. Satan meanwhile, is lulling people to sleep with the cares of this life. Jesus is telling us to wake up, watch and pray that we fall not into temptation.
2/05/2014, 4:43am by "Pastor Kingsley Jatt": The world is not a fun fair but a war fair; the day you enlist with Christ, you sign war with the devil. But with the instrumentality of faith through Christ Jesus, you will surely overcome and win the crown. Christ never says there will be no trouble as a child of God but he said he has given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions( the evil ones) and to overcome the power of the enemies and nothing will harm you
