Ephesians 6:10-18 - Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

The enemy wants us to be believe we are fighting against people, but the bible declares on today that our warfare is spiritual. For scripture declares that we fight not against flesh and blood, but against the powerful forces of darkness. Forces that are unseen with the natural eyes. Forces that can only be seen in the spirit through the Word of God. Therefore, we must put on the whole armor of God.

Whether we know it or not, the world is a battlefield. Spiritual wars are taking place very minute and every hour of the day. They are going on all around us.
Regardless of who we are, we are targets and are daily caught up in the crossfire of spiritual warfare. Just like having to prepare for a physical battle, Christians MUST prepare for spiritual battle. If not, you will we will be caught off guard and guaranteed defeat.
