caffeine and spiritual warfare
We all face battles every day. Relationship battles, financial battles, health battles, mental battles and spiritual battles.
If you are a genuine follower of Jesus Christ and study His word and His ways then you know the spiritual heaviness is far greater today then say- 15 years ago. The world has drastically changed for the worse morally in the past 25 years! God left us quite a lot of advice in His word about the battles we would face as a follower. Never did He say we would have a easy road just because we decided to accept His calling. But instead gave us direction about putting on the whole armor of God. Geared for battle to stand on the side of righteousness and Gods ways of living against the ways of darkness and sin that the world has gone. Held in the chains of that dark serpent called the devil who appears as a angel of light but deceives the whole world. God said he does deceive the whole world! Unless you have received the blood sacrifice of Jesus dying for you! If we are sick (physically)or stagnant spiritually we are more open to falling prey to temptations.
Therefore we must know we are nearing the end of the rule of man and darkness and this last part of race will take everything you have to endure and overcome. The first half of the preparation is God's word. Living, breathing speaking and writing the word of God. This is the spiritual training you have been receiving every day. But Today I speak of the physical. No warrior will fight the good fight if they are sick, run down, mentally or physically.

If there is any worldly crutch you have been using to lean on, now is the time to get rig of it! In my own life God is making me face harsh realities of what I can eat and drink and what is more harmful then good. For instance, I know that a little alcohol is not sin. But even a little at the wrong time and place can loosen your defenses however little we cannot afford to let down anywhere. We are in dangerous times. Prepare for great challenges ahead!
Did you know that a lot of people are now having caffeine sensitivities? Are we more sensitive now? Are we drinking more than in past years? I was searching the internet about it and found these symptoms:
- Restlessness and restless legs
- Headaches or migraines
- Palpitations and racing heart
- High blood pressure
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
