Season: 13 Episode: 186
How often do you think about the unseen realm? We can get so caught up in living in the moment, tending to our immediate needs and desires, that we often forget there is a spiritual realm we are part of. Albert Leon is back on the show to discuss the unseen realm, and we dive into the book by the late Michael Heiser as well as passages of Scripture that shed light on this topic. You will learn about gods, fallen angels, and why spiritual battles are very real.

How do we know the physical/temporal is not all there is?
Heiser begins his book by talking about God – the ruler over all and gods (little g). What is the difference and what point is he trying to make? Why does all of this matter?
The Bible doesn’t go into a lot of detail about Satan and his rebellion. How did free will affect the rebellion of Satan and the angelic hosts?
Heiser has a quote in his book that reads, “The powers of darkness know whose side we are on by our behavior. They are not stupid … Whether or not we believe it, we are being watched – by both sides of the spiritual war.” Can you expand on this and what that means for us as Christians?
There’s a very comforting and powerful thought Heiser brings up. He says, “While God is everywhere, he specifically dwells within each believer. Believe it or not, you are sacred space.” This thought reminds me of Carmen Imes book Bearing God’s Name. We represent God to the world in our actions, not one in our words. However, this ought to encourage us as individuals because the ver presence of God indwells each believer. How should this change the way we think about the spiritual realm and if we are being watched, what does that say when the evil beings watch those whom God’s very presence dwells?
What are the takeaways from Supernatural that we didn’t touch on but that believer’s should be aware of?
