This Is War! (Part 2)
Scripture: Ephesians 6:10–12
Ephesians 6:10-12: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 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.
There are two commands here, followed by an explanation. First command: Be strong. Second command: Put on the full armor of God. Explanation: For our struggle is not against flesh and blood. This is about a war that comes to you. The instant you become a child of God through faith in Jesus Christ, you become a member of the Church, the body of Christ. From that moment on, you are part of the entity that Satan has declared war against. This is a war for souls. We live and battle in enemy territory.
