I tend to agree with you. It has ben along time since I heard a sermon that incorporated a health dose of heavenly, spiritual warfare.
One of the men in my life that opened the scriptures to me is Pastor Steve Rutledge of Welcome Baptist church. Steve often would preach that real battle wasn’t with our fellow man but with the “powers”
When he preach on:
31 What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 Indeed, he who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all, how will he not also, together with him, freely give us all things? 33 Who will bring charges against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies. 34 Who is the one who condemns? Christ is the one who died, and more than that, who was raised, who is also at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 35 Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will affliction or distress or persecution or hunger or lack of sufficient clothing or danger or the sword? 36 Just as it is written,
“On account of you we are being put to death the whole day long;
we are considered as sheep for slaughter.”
37 No, but in all these things we prevail completely through the one who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Ro 8:31–39)
You knew when you left that service that Paul wasn’t talking about the Roman’s or the Jewish leadership we was talking about the metaphysical the Unseen Realm.
