Coach’s Weekly Word


Evil Spirits in High Places

By Coach Dave Daubenmire

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:13

Some of you will get this and some of you will not.  You laugh it off at your own peril. So much of what we see going on around us borders on the unexplainable.  The absolute madness that the Trump-haters display is one of those things.  Many of us had a strong dislike for the Obama administration but we didn’t take it to the streets in order to undermine what we viewed as an anti-American administration. We simply swallowed hard and complied.

The day Obama left office was a time of great joy for many of us.  As things begin to unfold in all of the investigations surrounding President Trump it is becoming obvious that for the previous eight years the American government has bordered on lawlessness.  There is so much to be revealed I am not sure we will be able to handle it once it is fully exposed.

How could government of, by, and for the people become so diabolical?  Where did America go wrong?  Why do so many Americans look the other way at wrong doing simply because their “party” is in power?  How have Americans become so divided?

Evil spirits in “high” places is the answer.  (Here is where I am going to lose some of you.)  The Bible teaches that the natural (non-born again) man does not understand the things of the Spirit.  Without an understanding of the spiritual world you CANNOT decipher what is happening in the natural world.  Let me dig into this a bit.

A human is a spiritual being that happens to live in a natural world.  In fact, although you have a body you are not a body.  You are a spirit that LIVES in a body…much as a car transports us around town…your body carries your spirit around in this “material” world.

Every human being enters the world the same way – which is through the womb of a woman.   The Bible teaches that at the moment of conception a new creation is formed complete with his/her own DNA which science calls the “blueprint of life’.  Everything that makes you, you, is present at the moment conception occurs. The Bible teaches that at that same moment, a living SOUL is present.

The soul is made up of the mind, will, and emotions.  The soul is actually YOU.  When people communicate with another human it is the soul to which they speak…not the body.  The body is merely the encasement in which the soul is housed.

Hence, you are first and foremost a soul (mind, will and emotions) that is given life by the Spirit (Breath of God), and you operate in this natural world with a body of flesh.  You are a soul…not a body.  When you die, the spirit/life leaves the body (natural world) and the soul leaves this natural world for a place we have been taught to call “heaven.”

But heaven is not necessarily the place where “God” lives but represents a non-material world where human flesh cannot operate.  This non-material world is what we commonly call the “spiritual” world. This is where the “spirits in high places” live and operate.

I don’t have the time to go into it now so do your own research, but suffice it to say that the “spiritual” world is made up of different dimensions.  This “spiritual” world, although not a material one like this earthly realm, is very real.  There is a gulf (area of separation) between the natural and spiritual dimensions.

The only way you can enter the earth realm is by occupying a physical body.  That is what God did.  He was born in human form, Jesus, through the womb of a natural woman, Mary.  Possessing a body is the only way to enter this earth (natural) realm.  The human soul is currently trapped in this natural world but is able to communicate with the spiritual realm.  That is the realm where the “evil spirits in high places” operate.

The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is the only way that a “natural man” (human) can ever get victory of “evil” spirits that bombard the natural world continually. The evil spirits attack humans through the mind.  Every evil action begins as a thought.  That is why we are taught to “take captive every thought”, because bad thoughts lead to bad behavior.  It is the MIND that the evil spirits try to influence.  This influence of the spirit realm comes through our natural senses…taste, touch, sight…and the desire to fulfill the “natural desires” of the flesh are what causes calamity in the natural world.  The Bible calls it sin.

The Bible teaches that when Satan was vamoosed from heaven he took one third of the angels with him.  It is from that fall from God’s presence that all of the evil has entered into the natural realm.  From the time Satan entered the garden he and his minions have been trying to oppose everything that is good.

Everything that is good comes from God and Satan and his offspring have worked tirelessly to destroy everything that is good. That is what we wrestle with…all of us…every human…principality and powers…evil spirits…determined to destroy all that is godly.

What occurs in this natural world is a direct result of what has been occurring in the spiritual (high) realm.  The devil and his children fight humanity through thoughts…planting lies that seem true…“did God really say?”

God sent His Son into this natural realm by the same method in which we all got here…through the womb of a woman; so that we might gain access to a Spirit greater than the spirits operating in this world.  That is the “wrestling” that we all do.

Without the Holy Spirit we are powerless against the forces of darkness IN THIS NATURAL realm.  The root cause of ALL of America’s problems is SPIRITUAL.  Sadly, there is no political answer to a spiritual problem.

The “high places” (positions of authority) in America are occupied by natural (non born-again) men.  Natural men are prisoners to flesh, natural influences and desires.  Money, fame, sex, and power are what drive America’s leaders and without the Holy Spirit they are incapable of doing what is right.

That is it in a nut-shell.  You can ignore it, or pick at my examples, but we are in the mess we are in because our leaders, and (sadly) our churches have no understanding of what is really going on around them.

The spirits that influence natural men are driving the nation over a cliff.  Evil flourishes when good men give yield authority to wickedness.  Read Genesis 6 and you will see that the battle has never changed…good versus evil…One will win.

Evil spirits in high places are ruling the world and the average Christian has no idea why.  How can we hope to win if we don’t understand the fight?!

Chapter 5
IT IS WRITTEN: “1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. 2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. 3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. 4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. 5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. 6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. 7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. 9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. 10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. 11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. 12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. 13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” =                    Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth = B.I.B.L.E. using only the King James Version Bible all other so-called Bibles are all GMOed versions and the New Internation Version = NIV; alone took out over 6,000 words – WHY?

Scripture for today☺️

• ”But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do. And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. Brethren, pray for us. Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss. I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”

‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:1-28‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Isaiah 64 for today🤠🙏🏾🙏🏻🙏🏽

“Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence. For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved. But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Be not wroth very sore, O Lord, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people. Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation. Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste. Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O Lord? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭64:1-12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Coach Dave asks:

🙏🏿🙏🏾🙏🏻July 26, 2018

Christian men are so soft. I don’t think there is a nice way to say it…especially if you are not really concerned about being nice.  It has reached the point where I am almost embarrassed to identify with the sissified men I see representing Christianity.

What in the world has happened to us?!  Why is the average Christian man so unlike the Christian men that we find in the Bible? 

Pick your Bible hero…my favorite is my namesake David…and take a good hard look at him and see if you see his prototype in America today.  Biblical men were real men.  The fought evil, spoke the Truth, and usually ended up in trouble with the authorities of their day.

It is only modern Christian men who find solace and comfort in bowing their collective knees to the forces of darkness.  Has there ever been a time in the history of the world where Christian leadership regarded compromise as a sign of godliness? 

Compromise is weakness.  Jesus didn’t compromise.  He didn’t go along to get along.  The greater the opposition for his revolutionary message the more he doubled-down.  Despite what may be modeled for you in your own church, the King of Kings was not a passive I’m-ok-you’re-ok kind of guy.

They crucified Him, you know. 

This topic is near and dear to my heart because I am often reminded that my “harshness” is a turnoff to some sissy Christian men who wouldn’t recognize a jock strap if it hit them in the face.  John the Baptist didn’t wear skinny jeans.  Jeremiah was not into “friendship” evangelism, and Jesus did not surround Himself with cookie-cutter senior pastors, ministers of music, or youth ministers that dot the landscape of America’s churches today.  He went after the hard core guys…guys who knew how to get their hands dirty…as opposed to today’s Pastor/CEO’s so prevalent in Evanjellyfishism today.

Where did we come up with the idea that Jesus was a softie…a pushover…a Mister Roger’s clone?  Help me here.  Can you point out for me even one “hero” in the Scriptures that was a weenie? 

Christianity is in dire need of a reformation.  How in the name of all that is holy have we come to the point where any man who speaks his mind is un-Christian?  Have you read the book of Acts?  Don’t you understand that those in the Bible who are most famous are the ones who opposed the status-quo?  Paul wrote most of the New Testament FROM JAIL.  A jail cell was his pulpit.

Not today.  No sir.  Anyone who stands up and speaks out is considered a troublemaker.  Challenging “the authorities” is now taboo…”sewing discord” is what the religious folks call it.  Standing up for the Truth, exposing sin, pushing back against the darkness just isn’t very Christian any more. 

 I heard from one of the listeners to my show last week that I would be more effective in my ministry if I was more Christ-like in my approach. “What do you mean by that?” I replied to the email.

Well, you just seem to be so harsh in your approach.  You can catch a lot more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.

“Well,” I responded.  “What makes you think I am looking for flies?  Flies swarm around things that are dead.  Jesus called us to be salt, not sugar.

Good one,” he jabbed.  “Our pastor is very soft-spoken and he has built a wonderful ministry at our church.  Hundreds come to hear his encouraging message every week.”

Hmmm.  It sounds like he has drawn a lot of flies.” I quipped.  “I like the fly swatter approach better.”

Christian men have become so soft. Despite what they want you to believe, it was harsh, non-compromising, Christian men that built this nation.  Compromised, soft, milquetoast, Christian men are giving it away.

Christian American men are so deceived.  Soft men do not fight.  Soft men look to “reach across the aisle.”  Soft men pride themselves on their ability to compromise.  Soft men tolerate evil.   Soft men have soft hands.  Soft men go down with a whimper.

Harsh men say harsh things.  Harsh men take harsh action.  Harsh men inspire real men.  The Bible is the story of harsh men taking harsh action during harsh times. 

The American Left is harsh.  They are Christ-less.  They are intent on destroying everything that strong Christian men built.  The Left advances only because the Right is soft.

Iron sharpens Iron, the Bible tells us.  Well, not today.  Iron SOFTENS iron.  That is the message of the American church.  Sit down, shut up, and get with the program.  Don’t make waves.  God is love.  Don’t be angry.

Silence in the face of evil is evil itself.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.  Bonhoeffer.

America is being bombarded with evil.  Why do we think submission to evil is strength?  What type of man cowers in the face of evil? 

Soft men.  Soft CHRISTIAN men.  That’s what our churches are producing.

Brother Isaiah today…

“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men. We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭59:1-21‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Signs in the Heavens…

Luke 21:10-12: Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
