Fighting The Invisible Enemy - Part 1February 27, 2016 Rabbi Carol Calise
It is hard to fight against someone you can't see. In the medical world, many people used to not recover from heart attacks because they were not able to recognize what was happening until it was too late. Today doctors know certain symptoms that are warning signs that have helped to save many lives . Spiritually, it can be the same. The enemy comes against us but we don't recognize what is going on. We blame the economy, our friends or family, the government, or our employer because we don't recognize the spiritual attack we are under. Rabbi Michael and I look around and we see the enemy roaring in so many of your lives and in the kehilah. “Life is a hard fight, a struggle, a wrestling with the principle of evil, hand to hand, foot to foot. Every inch of the way is disputed.” (Florence Nightingale) In the first of this two part message, we explore the who are enemy is and the reality that we are superconquerors given every weapon we need to secure the victory.
