Spiritual warfare is the unseen battle that rages around and within us each day. Because of this conflict, it is necessary for Christians to have a thorough knowledge of our enemy and his cunning before we can engage in a winning fight. In Ephesians 6 Paul identified our adversary and the only means of defense against his attacks. Teaching from this chapter, Alistair Begg calls listeners to prepare for the daily struggle that we face against evil in all areas of our lives.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
