"Take Up..."

“Take Up…”

Blessings folk!

Our struggle is not against flesh and blood…

Eph 6:12
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

How do we resist?
How do we fight?
Do we resist/fight?

This way…

Eph 6:13
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

We are to take up the full armor of God.
Believers have the armor of God. All of it.
We are to appropriate.
We are to take it up.
We are to “use” it.

For what purpose is the armor of God.

To resist in the evil day.
We are to resist evil.
Then, having done everything…everything?
Having done all possible to resist, we then stand firm.

Stand firm?
In what?

In faith.
In the Word.
In the Lord.
Against the schemes of the devil.

Stand firm!
Know the Truth.
Speak the Truth.
