Believers' Spiritual Warfare

Ephesians 6:11-18

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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.

Christians are in a spiritual warfare against Satan and his army as this spiritual conflict is known as the warfare of faith (v. 12). God knew that whom He called to be His servants that the battle lines were drawn in the sand-earth and He prepared His warriors for battle.

If the question were raised, What is the believer's battle armour? God dressed His warriors with the helmet of salvation, He girded our loins with truth-His truth as this is the only truth that will stand against Satan and his attacks. God covered His warriors with the breastplate of righteousness as this is His righteousness by which all mankind will judge. Believers' feet are shod with the gospel of peace as believers are to carry the gospel of Christ to a lost world. Believers are outfitted with the shield of faith so that we can withstand all Satan's fiery darts of wickedness that is designed to shake our faith. The last piece of body armour given by God is His sword-the Bible which is His word and with this offensive weapon we take the fight to Satan and his demonic schemes.

In the believer's warfare we remain in constant communication with our Commander-in-Chief-God through constant prayer.
Believers, fight on because we have victory.
