You may be saying, Apostle Beebe, I already know why I need my armor. It’s because I’m in a war against a tough enemy. You need your armor because you are fighting a spiritual enemy, the devil and his fallen angels ( Ephesians 6:12 ). And while I’m on reminders,let me go ahead and finish verse 12 by reminding you that you are not fighting people. The worst person in your life is not your problem. That person is only the vehicle through which Satan is getting at you . So don’t get sidetracked fighting people. Let’s talk about our need for the armor of God as Paul explains it in ( Ephesians 6 ). He writes, Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil ( v.11 ). The key phrase here is ” stand firm,” which Paul repeats in verses 13 and 14. The reason you need to put on your armor is because of your enemy, because of Christ’s victory, and because of the coming “evil day.” Satan’s attacks come from the unseen realm of the spirit. Therefore, if you don’t use God’s spiritual weapons to fight your spiritual battle, you are going to war with a cap pistol. What are some of the cap pistols we use to try to defeat Satan? For some of us, it’s our anger. We get mad and tell people off. But anger is a human weapon that doesn’t work against a spiritual enemy. Others of us have tried to use human weapons like positive thinking or positive confession, naming and claiming this and that. Or we make New Year’s resolutions. But these “cap pistols” don’t work in the war against Satan. You can’t use human weapons to win a spiritual war. The devil is far to crafty for us. He has schemes and plans we can’t even see. We need the armor of God because of the enemy we are up against. Tune in next week for more of Gods powerful word on why you need the armor of God. Be bless.
