The Invisible War—God’s SOP for Spiritual Prepping

As preppers, we invest a lot of time, thought, energy and money into being physically prepared for potential risks. However, ultimately, we need to recognize that we are engaged in an invisible war—one that requires us to be spiritually prepared as well. Thankfully, in His Word, God has provided us with His standard operating procedures (SOPs) for successful spiritual prepping!

A lot of our articles are focused on helping folks connect the dots between what is being manifested in our world today and what has been prophesied in Scripture—enabling our readers to take proper steps to mitigate their potential risks.

However, we also like to present articles that focus more exclusively on spiritual prepping. This is one of those articles—intended to help provide some simple insights into how we can all be better prepared spiritually for what is coming!

While some of us have a broad foundation of biblical knowledge, many are just now waking up to the spiritual side of the battle engulfing our world.  Whether this article presents new information for you or is just a refresher, I think the subject matter has intrinsic and perpetual value for all our readers.

The Apostle Paul reveals God’s standard operating procedures for highly effective spiritual prepping, exhorting us to put on the full armor of God so we can successfully stand in these last days—to stand in the midst of a raging spiritual war.

So, without further ado, let’s get into this and discover how we can be spiritually prepared to stand in the face the invisible war

The Invisible War Is Clearly Discernable in Our COVID & Great Reset World

The invisible (spiritual) war that is being waged in our world can be clearly discerned through the observation of its physical manifestations. One needs to look no further than New York to witness this.

Governor Cuomo has recently asserted:

There’s no unknown here, there’s no arbitrary decisions being made here. If the infection rate increases, the region closes.”

His remarks come in the wake of widespread criticism regarding the roll-out of the vaccines, criticism Cuomo has deflected towards New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Of course the rollout has been an epic failure! The elites have an end goal in mind and COVID provides them with a lever that is magnitudes of order more powerful than climate change ever was.

Marxist Rule #1: Never let a good crisis go to waste

Marxist Rule #2: Always intensify a crisis to maximize its benefit

They don’t want it to end! When the crisis ends… so does their leverage.

Now, it doesn’t matter what you and I think of the vaccines. What matters is what the vast majority of sheeple think about them—namely that they are the solution, the golden ticket to our collective salvation, and the sure path back to life as “normal.”

As such, they represent a powerful mechanism for the global elites to manipulate and exert control over people (see our article Mandatory COVID Vaccinations or Compliance by Coercive Manipulation?)

Given their ultimate goals, they will seek to maximize the leverage provided by this mechanism. In other words, they will stall and sabotage the initial rollout in order to:

  1. Allow the Crisis to “Worsen”
  2. Justify the Implementation of More Aggressive Actions

At best, this represents a “if you can’t beat ’em, join them” mindset.

These leaders can see the same thing we do. They can clearly read the same writing on the wall we read. They understand that the we are rapidly headed towards a global technocratic government. If they want a seat at the table, then they know they have to play ball for the New World Order team.

As such, it is merely a manifestation of the religion of woke—a modernist system of religious beliefs predicated on pragmatism. To learn more about this, we highly recommend reading our article Wokeness—Rebirth of Global Babylonian False Religious System.

Everything is relative. There is no absolute truth or moral framework. Therefore, do whatever is right in your own eyes and produces the results you desire (viz., wealth & power).

At worst, it represents a complete buy-in to the New World Order agenda and emerging religion of wokeness.

But Cuomo isn’t alone. It’s a script playing out across our country and across the West, as lockdowns once again metastasize and spread out across the globe and vaccine rollouts prove to be a proverbial train wreck or clown show.

Angela Charlton, writing for the AP, notes that “France’s cautious approach to rolling out a coronavirus vaccination program appears to have backfired… [and] the health minister vowed Monday to step up the pace.”

And good old President Emmanuel Macron, one of the chief proponents for vaccine registers (see our article We’re Never Going Back to Pre-Covid World—This Is How It Ends), has been busy holding a special meeting with top government officials to address the vaccine strategy.

Angela goes on to write that “Germany’s first-week total surpassed 200,000 and Italy’s was over 100,000 — and even those countries are under fire for being too slow to protect the public from a pandemic.”

That’s the developing (and carefully orchestrated) narrative folks—governments are moving too slow!

Of course, Macron’s government has been careful not to “appear” that it is forcing vaccines on anyone. No, they must maintain the façade of being cautious, deliberative and conservative.

It is a classic Hegelian dialectic (Marxist) approach: Create a crisis for which you already have the solution, and then deliver that solution when the sheeple cry out for it in desperation. In other words, you create an emotional public outcry for mandatory vaccination in the name of public safety… and then you deliver it like the hero you think you are.

In “reaction” to the criticism, Cuomo has established new vaccine rules declaring that any provider must use its inventory this week or receive a fine up to $100,000 and, going forward, providers must use all doses within seven days of receipt—and if they fail to do so, they could be disqualified from future vaccine distributions.

That’s a “soft” mandate folks… one that will intentionally fail and inevitably result in a “hard” mandate—meaning compulsory vaccinations and targeted oppression of those who fail to comply.

Everything is unfolding according to the plan.

Physical preps are important and beneficial—they provide you with an added degree of flexibility and buy you some time.

However, if you are not spiritually prepared, you will succumb to deception… whether it’s the alien narrative, the great reset, or the great awakening. We are navigating a dangerous minefield of misdirection, sleights of hand, and smoke and mirrors.

We are watching a carefully scripted game of chess being played out before our eyes. Humans represent the chess pieces—performing their tasks and functions. However, the opposing pieces are being strategically moved by hidden forcesunder the command of Satan (or Lucifer, the false “light bearer”).

We are engaged in an invisible warone being waged in the spiritual realm.

There is an unambiguous religious dimension to New World Order agenda—one that reveals the fingerprints of Satan.

If you fail to grasp this and properly understand the true nature, tactics and capabilities of the enemy, you will be mercilessly crushed by his forces.

To learn more about the New World Order agenda, we recommend reading our articles:

So how do we effectively stand against this enemy and survive the invisible war?

Let’s explore God’s standard operating procedures for effective spiritual prepping…

God’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Spiritual Preparation—The Full Armor of God

We are involved within a raging spiritual battle—an invisible war. The Apostle Peter warns us about the leader of the enemy forces when he writes:

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

Make no mistake about it. Satan is a potent adversary and he is intent on the destruction of the world… and that includes you!

Again, physical preps provide critical benefits… but they cannot help you stand against the satanic forces of evil we face.

To stand against the true enemy, we must be spiritually prepared.

In his letter to the church at Ephesus (Ephesians 6:10-17), the Apostle Paul provides us with the game plan for being spiritually prepared—God’s standard operating procedures for effectively standing in the midst of the invisible war.

Paul introduces his subject matter by exhorting us to “be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” (Ephesians 6:10).

This reveals two critical pre-requisites for being spiritually prepared:

  1. You must be saved by placing your faith in Christ alone (more on this at the end)
  2. Physical strength is powerless in a spiritual war—Only the power of Christ will prevail

Paul then provides us with the critical theme of his message:

Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:11).

Once we have received salvation, how do we stand?

We must put on the whole (or full) armor of God!


Paul continues by providing us with the reason we must do so:

For we do not wrestle 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 6:12).

Again, this is a spiritual—or invisible—war. The armor (or preps) of man are of no use in this spiritual battle. Rather, we must employ spiritual weapons and defenses in order to make our stand… weapons and defenses that manifest not our power but the power of Christ.

The Greek word translated as “wiles” is methodeias, which refers to crafty and deceitful schemes—evil methods used to organize and carryout wickedness.

That is precisely what we see being manifested in our world today.

It is not random chaos, nor is it the plan of men. It is the predetermined plan of Satan—developed even before the Fall and now reaching its culmination. It is a wicked plan replete with crafty and deceitful schemes—deceptions that, if we do not follow God’s SOP, will lead to us falling prey to the roaring lion seeking to devour us.

So, what is this full armor of God that we are supposed to put on?

Paul continues by identifying six items we must utilize in order to be spiritually prepared to make our stand against Satan’s New World Order in these last days:

  • The Helmet of Salvation
  • The Breastplate of Righteousness
  • Loins Girded in Truth
  • The Shield of Faith
  • The Sword of the Spirit (Word of God)
  • Feet Shod in the Gospel of Christ
Spiritual Prepping—Stand in the Full Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18)

Finally, Paul concludes his description of the full armor of God by reminding believers that this armor has a purpose—to enable us to effectively fight in the spiritual war raging around us.

And how do we fight this invisible battle?

Paul makes it clear that we do not fight this invisible battle through physical measures but, rather, through prayer: “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:18).

Jude echoes these standard operating procedures when he provides us (Jude 20-24) with the keys to victory in the midst of the invisible war:

  • Study the Word of God
  • Pray Continuously & Steadfastly
  • Walk Humbly in the Righteousness of Christ
  • Live in Anticipation of the Blessed Hope—the Rapture
  • Share the Gospel with a Lost & Dying World

It’s time to put on the full armor of God and make your stand in the midst of a rapidly escalating spiritual war!


Though we can’t directly see it, we all sense that there is an invisible war—or battle in the spiritual realm—raging around us and steering the events unfolding in our physical world.

While we can’t directly see it, we can observe its distinct manifestations in our physical world, such as the New World Order agenda, Great Reset, and numerous emerging deceptions (e.g., the ancient alien and great awakening deceptions).

To learn more about these deceptions, we highly recommend reading our articles Alien Deception & Great Awakening—Expect More UFO Disclosures and The Great Alien Deception—Is World Being Conditioned for Rapture?

While physical prepping is important, beneficial, and entirely biblical when performed appropriately (see our article 10 Reasons It’s Completely Biblical for a Christian to Be a Prepper)… it has its limitations. The chief of these being that it is entirely useless when it comes to the invisible spiritual war.

This is why it is even more important that you are spiritually prepared so “that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).

Now, scripture makes is undeniably clear that this invisible war is only going to intensify, as will its impact on our physical world—like increasing ripples on a pond.

Do not be deceived. The world is not going to get better. It is only going to get worse… much worse.

The world is about to enter a seven-year period of tribulation during which the physical manifestations of this spiritual war will be truly apocalyptic in nature.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to read our article Coming Apocalypse: Are You Really Prepared for Armageddon?

Fortunately, for those who have trusted in Christ, our citizenship is in heaven (Philippians 3:20) and we are merely serving as His ambassadors in this world (2 Corinthians 5:20). And the last thing one does before going to war is to call your ambassadors back home.

This is the raptureour blessed hope (Titus 2:13) and the next event on God’s prophetic calendar!

Until then, we need to continue our physical preps and, more importantly, our spiritual preps (i.e., putting on the full armor of God) so that we can confidently stand and effectively serve in our role as ambassadors of Christ.

However, all of this has one critical prerequisite—we must be believers in Christ!

You can’t put on God’s armor if you aren’t a member of His kingdom and family!

It has never been more critical to ensure you are spiritually prepared for what is coming!

Time is running out and the (a) rapture for believers and (b) start of the apocalypse for unbelievers is far closer than any of us could possibly imagine.

It’s time to put on the full armor of God, make your stand, and ensure that you’re onboard the Ark that is Jesus Christ (or Titus 213 Airlines Flight #777 if you prefer) before God seals the doors shut and it’s too late!

You do NOT want to be one of those left behind when Christ brings His ambassadors home and the spiritual war goes nuclear!

We encourage you to read our articles The Ship IS Sinking… What Are YOU Going to Do as It Goes Under? and Are You Prepping to Survive or to Escape the Coming Fiery Furnace?

Today is your day of salvation—a salvation that comes but one way: by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone!

Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” (Ephesians 2:4-9)
