It is not difficult for the children of God, who are watchful on their spiritual life and who are preoccupied with the matters of the Kingdom of God, to discern and realise that the current phase is a difficult and very crucial one. This is not only due to the current circumstances of our country, Egypt. It is also because of the spiritual battles that we all experience during this phase. The battles are different from what we have experienced before; they are more severe and intense to the extent that it sometimes seems difficult to overcome them.

If we were following the news of the Kingdom of God in different places around the world, since we are members in the one body of Christ, we would surely realise that we have entered an “important phase” that has specific features. It is our duty, or rather our responsibility and need, to know these features and learn how to face them appropriately. Christ died and was risen to complete all things in our salvation leaving us unending and unlimited divine and spiritual abilities and potentials from which we should draw what we need. Remember that it was written: “My grace is sufficient for you; for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” 2Corinthians 12: 9b

Thus, there are inevitable challenges. In the radiance and shine of resurrection, we find sufficient light that can expose and uncover these challenges. The resurrection shines forth divine lights that reveal to us the plans of darkness and its authority as Christ has exposed them on the day of His crucifixion when He said: “But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.” Luke 22: 53b

Not only does it expose, but it also reveals to us the manifold rich grace of resurrection which is sufficient and capable to fortify us and enable us to triumph in the constant and successive battles. In His victory, Christ “disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it (in His cross)” Colossians 2: 15
