There is a spiritual warfare that happens behind the scenes. Daniel received a vision from God concerning the future of his people, the nation of Israel. Daniel also saw that Satan resists the plan of God. There is a spiritual struggle behind the struggles here on earth. There is a cosmic war behind human conflicts. The good news is that God fights on behalf of his people. The decisive battle was on when Jesus Christ died on the cross. The irony of the gospel, the good news about Jesus, is the the battle is not won through killing, but through dying. God is still with us today as we face our spiritual struggles. Our battle is not with flesh and blood, but with spiritual forces behind what is evil in this world. Our weapons our prayer and faith in God. God is still there for his people.
