Rev. 12:7-8 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”
How do angels fight each other? We often picture them fighting with swords in their hands. But I’m sure this is not like it. It is not like physical fighting. You know, angels are spiritual beings and spiritual beings cannot die nor can be injured. But we can have an idea about how they fight through the above verses. After Michael and his angels won the fight, Satan and his angels have no more place in heaven. Their access was limited by the winners.
This is also what happened in Daniel 10:13-14. An angel who was tasked to give instructions to Daniel was detained by Satan. He can’t go to Daniel. He was only freed when Michael helped him. The demons in Jesus’ day recognized His authority over them and were afraid to be sent to the abyss. This is what spiritual warfare is. We don’t fight against flesh and blood that you can wound or kill, but against the authorities, powers and rule of the devils in high places that prevent us to soar high and do the will of God for us. That’s why we need to put on the whole armor of God (Eph. 6:11). YOU MUST NOT LET THEM WIN AND PREVENT YOU TO DO THE WILL OF GOD.
