Most believers know that the Bible says ..". for we wrestle not against flesh and blood..." But, if we say that "we know this," then why are there so many believers, made of flesh and blood, blaming, resenting and fighting one another?
Maybe it's because we are not realizing enough that those negative " thoughts and feelings" do not come "just from us..".but from living beings that are unseen.
We are not realizing enough that unholy thoughts, feelings, desires and reasons did not originate "from us" or from what is said to be "our sinful nature..".just as holiness does not originate "from us." If our holi-ness comes from the HolySpirit, would our un-holiness not also come from un-holyspirits?
I submit that we do not understand enough " the sin that dwells in the flesh." It is alive, and does what we do not want to do... unless we recognize the real, spiritualenemies behind "the flesh."
Miguel Demelli is a Spirit-filled believer who also embraces the Hebraic roots of the Messiah and the Whole House of Israel (Ezekie 37:15-28). He's been searching for the "keys to victory" for 15 years. And just when he thought he was defeated forever, these simple truths were clarified to him and transformed his walk...forever.
His desire is to see true unity and victory in the Body. But, as he found out for himself, this cannot happen as long as there is so much hidden, unrecognized enemy activity in and through us operating against ourselves and then against one another, resulting in much strife and even diseases.
He presently splits his time as a translator in his local congregation, as Spanish Outreach Coordinator/Translator for the Messianic Israel Alliance in the US and Mexico, as an associate with wholeness ministries and with other personal ministry and translation opportunities. He currently resides in Orlando, Florida.
