Most of us think of the Lord Jesus as a kind of pussy cat who is only meek and mild. Yet scriptures reveal that each member of the God family is a great, strong and terrible warrior. The Israelites echoed these words when they escaped across the Red Sea and Peter talked about ‘the terror of the Lord” (2 Cor 5: 11).
We really do not know about the terror of the Lord because many of us choose to believe that God is too loving to judge. However, his dealings with Pharoah and the heathen as well as modern day nations and people should surely convince us. Take a look at Psalm 18 and see how He deals with our enemies. Ps 35: 5 also speaks about the angel of the Lord chasing our enemies.
Additionally, we do not know of the terror of the Lord in the invisible realm. Apostle Paul gave us a peek in to Jesus’ mighty triumph over satan and the demons that follow him:
Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it (Col 2: 15).
I wrote a previous post about hidden dimensions of spiritual warfare or warfare in the invisible realm. This will clearly show parallels between warfare in the earth realm and warfare in the spiritual realm. Please read this at
Did not David say in Psalm 18 that God had taught him to war. That King was such a terrible warrior that Israel enjoyed many years of peace even after his death? Think about the terror of the God who had taught him to war? Jesus is a mighty and terrible warrior (just like the other two members of the God family). If you do get a peek into the invisible realm, this will be seen clearly. Even if you do not believe this to be true, scriptures teach us that there is an invisible world which was created by God (Rom 1: 16; Col 1: 20).
God rules and reigns in this invisible realm. Every thing, including satan and his demons, is under His authority. This is the word of the Lord on the issue:
I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth [in] righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear (Isa 45: 23).
Why does the devil fight for supremacy? Beats me! Have a great day!
