Must we compete in spiritual matches,
against unseen, devilish competitors?
Must we needlessly suffer and find…
our souls ending up both worn and sore?

Within this fallen, earthly world,
the rulers of darkness don’t worry me;
for I know that their authority
is incapable of imprisoning completely.

Their ongoing tactics of fear,
is something that I’ve already seen.
So I’m not concerned, knowing…
that I’m a member of the Kingdom scene

Although we’ve been unwillingly dragged
through pain, troubles, dirt and mud,
our continuing, sacred battle is…
not against flesh and blood.

Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Eph 6:12

Flesh and Blood
This has an easy rhythm that I really enjoy. I think you've got a good one here.

I like the conviction, i like the rhythm , i like the spirit.
Okay demons wont get hold of us so far, and its ridiculous that our war is to invisible things , and we have to suffer in life for it.
Kind of what the anti-christians have been saying since ages......But then
at the end you turn round and say our fight is not with flesh and blood but with the spiritual side? So which is it then? Dont worry im not putting down ur just love to see it more explained prehaps? >.
