Ephesians #47

Ephesians #47

God has provided everything we need; we have the same resources as every person in the Bible. Spiritual combat briefing: Armor of God Eph 6:10-20. Call to action for believers: "Be strong in the Lord" -- strength/ability that only God can give (Eph 6:10-13). What He gives in fellowship is through His Word (Eph 1:16-20, Eph 3:14-21). "Put on" means to clothe; putting on the armor means putting on Jesus Christ (Rom 13:11-14). Jesus Christ entered the world as an armed soldier (Isa 59:16-20). "Wiles of the Devil" means deceitful plotting (Eph 6:11, Eph 4:14). Have you possessed your possessions (Oba 1:17)? Our war is against the hierarchy of the Satanic hosts (Eph 6:12). "Stand" is the battle cry of the Roman soldiers (Eph 6:13-14). Removing the imagery of the armor, to put on and stand in Jesus Christ means essentially: truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the Spirit. Christ responded to enemy with the Sword of the Spirit (Luk 4:1-14) -- the recall ministry of the Spirit.
