We need to keep in mind that we've always lived in a fallen world ... and that the evil one, that is the devil, is determined to steal, kill and destroy whatever he can ... or whatever we allow him .to ...
Because we can by confident that by the grace of God, and through the power of the cross of Jesus Christ, we can stand fast during those times when the onslaught of the enemy comes.
Ch 6:10-11 - “Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
Ch 6:12 - “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.”
