(KJV.) EPHESIANS 6:10-13
(10) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
(11) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
(12) 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.
(13) Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
PRAY AGAINST SPIRITUAL WARFARE
Brethren, seemingly or unseemingly, the enemy of our souls, periodically warfares believing souls: his deception of humanity, in the garden of Eden, from generations after generations, the enemy roams around the world like a wounded roaring lion, looking for preys to devour; therefore, let us beware of his temptations; if we say, we do not have problems with the enemy right now; we give glory to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; however, let us not relax ourselves, rather be watchful, prayerful, not to enter into his temptations, problems do not come in packages; the enemy devices problems, carefully wills them out from world of darkness into our minds, instigates them through our own minds into our lives; therefore, Apostle Paul is saying to believers in the above text, to be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might."; in other words, believers need to watch out for devices of the enemy, his temptations, craftiness, manipulatives ways to shake faith foundations of their lives, in the body of Christ; stand fastly in the faith of the righteousness of our Father, through Jesus Christ, be strengthen in his words, believe that Jesus Christ never gives up on believers, he is always on our sides, equip ourselves like soldiers ready for war: "Put on the whole armour of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."; for Jesus Christ called believers out of darkness into his marvellous lights; therefore, believers are no longer citizens of world of darkness but are lights of this world; as spiritual torch lights, let us shine as illuminating lights, be vigilantes for Jesus Christ, in this world of darkness, pray fervently, read his words everyday, readily position ourselves spiritually against devices of the enemy and overcome his pestering spirits.
Though we live in the physical world, everything that happens on earth, whether, good or evil, are engineered from spiritual worlds before manifestations of earth; when good things happen to us, they are favors, blessings from our Father, per James 1:17; Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.; therefore, as believers, our blessings are not from the enemy, but from our Father of lights; the fountainhead of grace, happiness, peace everlasting through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, there is no one else like unto him; however, the enemy camouflages blessings, makes them look like they are blessings from our Father; let us not fall for his lies, his blessings are not eternal, always with catches; "if you do this, I will give you that; remember how he tempted Jesus Christ, three times, after he fasted for forty days and nights in the wilderness and was hungry; Matthew 4:1-11; if the enemy tempted Jesus Christ, he can tempt believers as well, but cannot overshadow their glories with darkness, even if they fall into his temptations, Jesus Christ turns his evil works into manifestations of his glories; the enemy is a failure, Jesus conquered the world, grant victory to humanity, we are more than conquerors, therefore, let us come unto him, have salvation, free grace, and everlasting life.
Brethren, let us beware of what goes on in the world of darkness, we are not to participate in evil works, however, we need to have the awareness, in other to prepare ourselves spiritually, discern when the enemy warfares, how to overcome his devices, walk in the victory Jesus Christ provided for humanity by his sufferings, crucifixion, and resurrection into heavenly places, his coming back again, to receive believers unto himself forevermore.
Dearly beloved, let us take upon ourselves the shield of faith, be watchful, because we live in an evil stricken world; evil works are being manifested daily on earth, everywhere around the world, no one knows for sure what is going on in this world, what will come up when they leave their places of abode every day; everywhere is unsafe in this world, even in our own abodes, natural disasters can devastate lives; believers, let us pray fervently for blood of Jesus to protect lives, the only hope for humanity in this world, is the hope of the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to receive believers, grant peace in eternity; therefore, if anyone have not yet received him into their hearts as Lord and Savior of the world; it is time to come, accept and believe in him, leave all cares of this world unto him and focus on final destinations, where there are peace and joy forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
