There is a war in progress between the lord Jesus and the devil. Everyone in the world is part of that war. You are a part of it. You are either actively fighting with Jesus against the devil and his host or you are actively or passively taking side with Satan against Jesus and his hosts on which side are you fighting ?The spiritual warfare books were born in the crucible of ministry. To some extent we know in reality what we are writing about. The lord Jesus is alive and he is real. The devil is alive and he is real. The warfare is real and not imaginary.The Bible says that we are not fighting against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers. In this book, we have made a study of principalities and powers and how they can be overthrown. In the course of writing this book, we came across the beautiful article by Ralph Mahoney which complements and confirms what we have written about. We have therefore included his message in the book.This book, “The Overthrown of principalities and powers” is one of five books which we have called, “the conflict between God and Satan”. The books in this series are:Book One : The Way Of Spiritual WarfareBook Two : Deliverance From DemonsBook Three : The Overthrow Of Principalities And PowerBook Four : Jesus Loves You And Wants To Heal YouBook Five : Freedom From The Power Of Witchcraft, Sorcery And MagicWe send this book out with prayer that it will lead to greater freedom among the children of the kingdom. We further pray that the Lord God will be pleased to use it to open the eyes of many of his children as how to take towns, nations and continents for his glorified son.We also send the book out confessing that we are students in these things and praying that the lord will teach us in an increasing way so that in every way we shall be like Him as we wield spiritual power.To Him be honour and glory.
