Scripture Reading: Ephesians 6:10-12
Finally, or from here on out, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Before this time believers might have lacked some measure of God's fully revealed will. Why? Because it had not been revealed in its total. And the "whole armour of God" had not been so fully detailed. With God's revelation now completed through Paul, the man of God could be complete, throughly fitted for every good work and for every conflict as well. Paul can now say in fulness, "We are not ignorant of his [Satan's] devices." We are therefore fully armed and aware of the enemy's tactics. With this armour on, we will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Though we do not wrestle against flesh and blood as such, the opposition backed by the wicked spirits in heavenly places is usually in human form. Religious preachers and teachers are the ones most opposed to God's message of grace. Whether dedicated to ritualism or rationalism these forces unite to oppose God's message and good news for today. And taking their tactics from their leader who had the brass to quote Scriptures to Christ tempting Him in the wilderness, we must in like manner follow our Leader and handle it correctly as the occasions demand. This is our armour, the Word of God! Right handling of it requires "rightly dividing the Word of Truth." This is the only way we will be able to stand and also to withstand in this evil day. Our conflict is day by day. We must have the Word day by day in order to meet the challenge. The victory has been won and is ours to claim and to proclaim!
