“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12)
“Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. He instructed me and said ‘Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. As you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed’ (Daniel 9:21-23)
The Bible is very clear that a spiritual war has been going on since Satan was cast out of heaven. As followers of Jesus, we are part of that spiritual battle that literally effects all of humanity. Daniel’s intercession transformed the known world of his day through divine revelation from the angel Gabriel. This message was hindered in the heavens by a demonic force for 21 days, but as Daniel persevered in the prayer battle, Gabriel was able to deliver the message. Be open to receiving God’s divine revelation for your situation and persistently pray to receive it.
