Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. (Ephesians 6:10-11 NIV)
Before we discuss the full armor of God, establishing our beliefs about the enemy seems beneficial and necessary. After all if we don’t believe there is an enemy, why bother with armor?
If I asked one hundred Christians, do you believe in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit? I’d get an emphatic YES, of course.
If I asked one hundred Christians, do you believe in angels? I’d get a majority to respond with absolutely.
If I asked one hundred Christians, do you believe in demons, spiritual forces of evil, powers of this dark world, and Satan?
Prepare by reading, thinking about, and pray about Ephesians 6:10-17.
See you in a twinkling,
