Our Struggle Is Not Against Flesh and Blood

Billy Mark

Our Struggle Is Not Against Our Flesh and Blood

“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Ephesians 6:12

In May 2016, I will engage in a wrestling match, on 8 Mile, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places (SFOWIHP). At this point, what I will be wrestling remains unclear.

What has become clear is that while the match itself is important, matches are also won and lost in practice. Therefore, physical, artistic, and spiritual disciplines will play a key role in my training.

Because of my relative lack of knowledge on the subject of 8 Mile, spiritual wickedness in heavenly places, and wrestling, I will rely heavily on training partners. Think of my training as an open source performance liturgy: On the blog that I will use to document the process, anyone moved to contribute can share wrestling moves, wrestling videos, stories about 8 mile, stories about wrestling with power, spiritual insights, videos, audio, scripture verses, poetry verses, rights, facts, books, whatever will help toward the goal of winning the match against SFOWIHP in May.

Out of these contributions, every week, I will compile and share a new performance liturgy that will serve as my training schedule for the week. It will include the times that I will be engaging in prayers, meditations on texts, wrestling practice videos, workout schedule, etc.

Your support, encouragement, and partnership in anyway will be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to be notified of when the blog, site, and training go live, go to www.wrestle.space and sign up to be a training partner
