Right now, this team is dead because of its many sins during this extended period of disobedience. It is enslaved by old ways of thinking, and its leaders have been fooled by demonic forces, the spirits at work in those who do not know God and who now have influence over their every move. Many of us are culpable too, running here and there after every loss, screaming and shouting about the incompetence present here, and not seeing that God's sovereign plan is being accomplished even in the midst of this suffering.
But God is extremely merciful. He is so full of love that even now with this team dead in its sins and many people beginning to lose hope, he has given us the promise of resurrection to new life when those who now follow after demons will be either cut off or redeemed, and when we will sit with him in the heavenly realms celebrating both our earthly victory and spiritual glory.
