Understand the struggle, fight, contest is for control. For who’s the boss. We see struggle and think it’s for power or money, but the struggle at its center is for control.
Our lives are like Bible prophecy. Isaiah saw beyond our day, beyond the last of the last days into the thousand-year millennial period when Satan’s struggle to control Jerusalem is resolved. Then men will not learn war anymore.
People attempt to control others, thinking they can and as though there’s no consequence. Their boldness to do so continues, seemingly unchallenged over time, even years. Then something or someone unexpected shines light onto their inner struggle.
Control, manipulation, accusing and tormenting others suddenly comes home to roost—like a boomerang, the real tormentor buried within is targeted. A harvest of all those seeds. Now a new and totally different contest begins.
