When you talk about Spiritual Warfare there are lots of strong opinions. Different people view it differently. Spiritual issues in general aren’t all that well understood. Why should be obvious – we’re not spiritual beings. At least not completely. In fact, its so separated from our physical world that the majority of people can reasonably dismiss it without a second thought.
When it comes to telling stories I think they need to reflect as closely to the truth of our experience as possible.
Of course everyone says that. So what do I mean? Well, this
The Part We Play
How do you view the spiritual realm? Do you imagine an invisible world of angels and demons battling around you for the souls of mankind?
So many sites, groups and forums have rules about what you can and can’t say and things you have to believe and others you can’t to be a member.
When it comes to things in the Spiritual Realm and the Mysteries of the universe this is – in this author’s opinion – a bit short sighted.
None of us have a perfect understanding and its amazingly easy to misunderstand and we always want to be right.
I’m going to lead here by saying I’m probably wrong about a lot of things. Along that line I don’t intend any articles I write here to be definitive by any stretch of the imagination. As I learn and gain more incite (hopefully from some of you) I’ll be updating these articles. I’ll include links to those updates in the weekly newsletter so those of you who are interested can keep up with these changes.
So lets discuss those things together in a respectful and thoughtful manner. We might have to set some rules to facilitate conversation (I know its hard to have online;)
So if this is sounds good to you you might be in the right place.
I welcome your comments on any post I just ask you be thoughtful and respectful. Lets make each other better.
about your host
My name is David White. I’m the Publisher at WhiteFire Publishing. I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing author for the last decade or so. So, of course, I love books.
Since I was a child I loved television (I grew up on the original MacGyver) and telling stories in that format. I never really considered that I could work with that kind of storytelling in any way but here I am writing original content and adapting novels for the screen. It still intimidates me sometimes but I won’t let it stop me.
It also turns out that the stories I feel compelled to tell always have an element of the mysterious or spiritual warfare somewhere inside them. That’s probably why you’re here, right? Lets explore those things together and build amazing stories with the most compelling elements and themes from the Spiritual Realm.

The devil can cite scripture for his purpose.
The enemy will not see you vanish into God's company without an effort to reclaim you.
Enemy-occupied territory-----that is what this world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign in sabotage.
The trumpet still plays the notes of war. You cannot sit down and put the victory wreath on your head. You do not have a crown. You still must wear the helmet and carry the sword. You must watch, pray, and fight. Expect your last battle to be the most difficult, for the enemy’s fiercest charge is reserved for the end of the day
We must recognize that the Church’s real battle is not with fellow Christians “but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age” (Eph 6:12). How we as a Church fight this cosmic battle is a cosmic matter, and the armor of God is our spiritual equipment that moves us forward to victory.
Some say this is the greatest investment in which you can put your time, substance, and life. Nonsense! It’s a war! I don’t like to hear missions described as a business investment, for there are two implications that I believe are wrong. First, when someone asks me to make an investment, I expect in reasonable time some returns. In the second place, the implication is that what I have I can choose to do with as I will. And that’s not so either. Total warfare means total commitment with no options and no returns, and past the point of no return
