Truth and Light Reveal Motives

Kathy — Apostle Paul put the issue in these descriptive terms:  “we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere” (Eph.6:12, AMPC).  Discerning works or workers of darkness may not always be as obvious as in the showdown between Moses and the Egyptian magicians.  It will not always be their acts and abilities that expose workers of darkness, but being confronted with truth and light will always reveal their motive and their source of power.  The showdown between Moses and the magicians exposed everything.
