Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We need to realize as Christians, our enemies are not human. Satan does use humans to come against us, but he is the one pulling the strings. Principalities are spiritual beings of the highest rank and order in Satan’s kingdom. Powers is the rank of spiritual beings just below the “Principalities. The rulers of darkness of this world are the spirit beings who carry out the instructions of the “Powers”. Finally, the spiritual wickedness in high place refers to the demon spirits. Although Satan has an active force working against us, God is still the all-powerful one, and we are under His protection, as long as we keep our faith in Jesus and Him crucified.
