Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil. For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.
Ephesians 6:11-12 HCSB
We are called to suit up in the Armour of God and NEVER to remove it; to remove it leaves us vulnerable to the evil forces of this world. Our battles are not with the physical entities of this world, but against the spiritual ones; the demons and dark princes. We must suit up, we must prepare ourselves daily for battles; battles not only against us, but against our families and friends.
We are in a war that has been going on for all of history; Adam and Eve were the first casualties, but the second Adam, our Lord and Saviour, avenged them and showed that He is the victorious one!
We must battle with the weapons of God, we must follow Jesus into this battle and fight with all our might; to not fight is to seal our fate to certain death. Put on your Armour and pick up your sword; heed the battle cry of God and take the fight to the devil! With God on our side, how can we lose?
