Ephesians 6:10-12

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”


The born again Believer’s lifestyle is a constant spiritual warfare with satan and a never ending struggle between good and evil. Those who are in Christ are assured victory. Paul is merely assuring us that we will need the Lord's armor to protect us from the few last blows the enemy will strike at each one of us. We must realize that satan is trying to take advantage of us. He can attack us through our testimony, our families, our attitudes toward others, and even can cause us to compromise on the principles in the Word. Many times, we don’t even realize his efforts until we’ve made a mistake. That is why Paul is warning us.


Let us keep God’s truth constantly around us and remember our righteousness is in Christ. When we do that, God places the gift of peace in our hearts that can only come from the Gospel. So let us keep our faith in Christ, let us joy in our salvation constantly, and let us take up and use the Word of God always, that we may be able to fight the enemy each day. Let us fight, knowing that the victory has been won and through our battles the Lord will mold and shape us into the image of Christ.


Will you stand for Christ in this day? Will you fight even when you get knocked down? Or will you stay down? Remember God stands with you. There is no weapon the enemy has that could ever defeat you.


62-0311 - "The Greatest Battle Ever Fought"
140 God is training for this great battle. Matthew 24 said there, and also Daniel 12, said, "There would be a time of trouble, such as never like on the earth before." And we're living in that time, when culture, and education, and things, has smothered over the Word of God, and got into reasonings and so forth. The battle is now. Who will stand? Hallelujah! The battle is ready to go in. She's array now. Look what a great opposition we got yonder.
