"10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:12 tells us that we are in the midst of a spiritual battle.
"12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
Ephesians 6:13 tells us how to fight.
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
The evil day has arrived and it is time for every Christian to wake up and take a stand. In our present day there is a rush of immoral forces pushing hard against Christian beliefs, Christian values, and Christian morals. Many people who call themselves Christians, are blindly loosing the pieces of the armor that God expects us to use in the battle before us.
Never before in the history of the United States of America, have we seen such an onslaught of Anti Christian attacks. Anything that isn't of Christ is certainly Anti-Christ.
Even well known Church organizations in the United States are compromising God's Word based on an understanding of love that comes no where close to the true work of Agape Love and even God's purpose for erotic love.
This is a Spiritual battle that has simply burst out into the natural world with such a vigor that pushing back has become a challenge.
It is a real battle of Good versus Evil. And even so-called Christian people and Christian organizations are lending a hand to the side of evil.
Now, more than ever the individual must dig into God's Word to identify the truth and make sure that we are wearing God's armor in this Spiritual battle instead of blindly aiding the enemy.
We must stop using the pieces of God's Word that suit our humanistic purpose. Instead, we must learn to use all of God's Word, synthesized in our minds by His Holy Spirit, to stand strong and un-yeilding for God's Righteousness.
You can't sit passively on the side-line of this battle any longer.
Grab God's Armor and put it on now, you're really going need it.
