TIlE BELIEVER'S CONFLICf – By Ivan L. Burgener

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!

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
