TRANSCRIPT:

Derek Prince – Bible Teacher

Thank you so much for that welcome. Thank you, brother Hagee. It’s a real privilege to be with you again. We’ve had some exciting times together. I think you’ll agree. I esteem Brother Hagee as a great man of God. I think what he’s achieved here in this place, in these people, is tremendous. And I’m honored to be here and to minister to you all.

Where The Spiritual Conflict Takes Place

So let me turn to an initial text for the theme of warfare in the heavenlies. Ephesians chapter 6, verse 12. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

If I may, I’ll give you the Prince version, which is a little bit more literal. I started learning Greek when I was 10 years old, and I became a professor at Cambridge University. So I do know something about Greek. Nobody knows everything about Greek, let me tell you that. It’s a very elaborate language with a long history of nearly 3,000 years. So anybody tells you he knows it all is mistaken.

But this is the Prince version of Ephesians 6, verse 12. “For our wrestling match is not against flesh and blood.” And the Living Bible says, “persons with bodies,” which is a good rendering. “Our wrestling match is not against persons with bodies, but against rulerships, against authorities, against the world dominators of this present darkness, against spiritual hosts or forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

It begins here in my text. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.” Unfortunately, many Christians have got it punctuated wrong. “For we do not wrestle.” Period. In fact, I would have to say from my observations, most Christians have got it wrong. There are not many Christians who are really wrestling.
