Put on your armor!
“But how do we fight back?” asks Whyte. “If this is a battle, what are our weapons? Turn with me to Ephesians chapter 6, verse 10. This passage describes the Christian's armor:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 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. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
That’s what the Apostle Paul wrote. Of course, he wrote it in Greek. The passage above is in the classical prose of the King James Version of the Bible. What does it mean in plain English?
