Spiritual Warfare

Authority - 5

The Seventy returned from their mission rejoicing in the Lord, and their experiences far exceeded their expectations. They told Jesus that even the demons were subject to them through his name. Indeed, we are engaged in a great spiritual battle. It is the battle of the great day of God Almighty (Revelation.16:14). It is a battle of authority. All authority in heaven and earth has been given to Jesus (Luke 10:22; cf. Matthew 28:18), and he gives this authority to us (Luke 10:18-19; cf. Matthew 28:18-20;).

The problem comes in Numbers 31:9 when Israel took all the Midianite women captive, which angered Moses (Numbers 31:14), who then told the soldiers to slay all the women who weren’t virgins (Numbers 31:17). Why kill these women. They weren’t warriors. They should be reckoned as noncombatants—shouldn’t they?[1] Read the rest of this entry »
