Tony Evans on Victory in Spiritual Warfare

One of my all-time favorite movies
involves a man who had to make a choice. He had to choose between the physical
visible realm that he knew and this invisible realm that he did not know. The
choice came about when he understood that this invisible realm was actually
controlling what was happening in the visible realm that he lived in and was
so accustomed to. This movie, The Matrix, challenged Thomas Anderson to make a
decision. Because he understood what the real world was. There are two worlds: the
physical world we live in and this world behind the world, the spiritual realm. And
the principle is simply this. Everything visible and physical is controlled by
something invisible and spiritual. And therefore, if you want to change the
realm that you know, then you must draw from the invisible spiritual realm that
you do not see. Because everything visible and physical is controlled by
the invisible and spiritual. He had to make a choice and so do you.
We’re in a battle, a spiritual war, but unless you know how to access your
spiritual resources, in this case the armor of God that He has given us to
equip us to fight in this world from that world, you cannot know spiritual
victory. And God has called you to victory. He’s called you to be like
Thomas Anderson. He’s called you to be the one, the one through whom He
demonstrates the power from up there, when executed down here, shows that up there
is greater than whatever your facing right here. Guess what? You are the one.
