the battle of flesh against spirit is the first battle
Jhn 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
ME: Those who are born of the Spirit are in a different dimension from those who are born of the flesh:
Jhn 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him [that was born] after the Spirit, even so [it is] now.
there is also a spiritual battle that happens after we are catapolted into that other dimension but those who are in the flesh don't even see that dimension so they can't really battle there....
the spiritual war is the CAUSE behind all flesh being at odds against the spirit of God:
this is why we can't be heard by those who are only 'sensual' (five senses) and not spiritual (understand the "Will" and how it is separate from the senses in those who are born from the Spirit)
PS my response to the post below is included here with this post as well. Christianity is the religion of those who are GOING TO BECOME ONE with Christ when they give birth to Christ, since he is the firstfruits of all creation....and then they will be crucified with Christ to become "ONE WILL" and this will will lead them into all righteousness
till Christ is born through Christians, they aren't really Christians because they don't have that SIXTH SENSE, that spiritual SENSE of being different than flesh and blood, or sensual, ruled by the five senses alone:
a believer in Jesus is not necessarily a Christian: It is written they were called CHRISTIAN first in Antioch, (driven against)
when one becomes a Christian, (recognizes that Jesus is the CHRIST), Satan asks to sift these because he sees them as coming out of this world, the world of the five senses:
the spiritual war begins at that point between Satan (god of matter) and Christ (GOD OF ALL SPIRIT):
till we are ready to come out of this world, we are not even aware of the god of this world: We don't FEEL an antichrist spirit till we experience the CHRIST Spirit:
now we may see the affects of antichrist, but that can just as easily be attributed to other things in life and are by many people:
