Rules of Engagement

Jul 12, 2020


God will use the very thing that the enemy used against you, to try to keep you in bondage, by turning it into a weapon against the devil.

When Jesus died and was raised from the dead, He defeated death and took back all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18-20). It’s from victory that we fight the enemy: principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and spiritual forces of wickedness (Ephesians 6:12). Equipped for battle, we put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:16-20) and use our authority in Christ to defeat the schemes of the enemy.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
Ephesians 6:10-13 NKJV
