Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 6:13


6:13 In the evil day - The war is perpetual; but the fight is one day less, another more, violent. The evil day is either at the approach of death, or in life; may be longer or shorter and admits of numberless varieties. And having done all, to stand - That ye may still keep on your armour, still stand upon your guard, still watch and pray; and thus ye will be enabled to endure unto the end, and stand with joy before the face of the Son of Man.

    A parent should never behave in a way to provoke a child to hate, nor should they teach a child to hate. Raise a child to walk in love, respect and tolerance. Help them to be good people.

    Aimen,glory to God who gives us His word clearly,the word says instruct a child in the way he should go so that when he grows he will not depart from it,meaning it is the role of the parents to groom children in a God's way which does not lead to wrath for wrath comes as a punishment of sinning before God,its a responsibility as a parent to bring your children to the light of God so that they will be able to live right.before God and also to respect you as a parent........................................ Now helping a mother with a problem with her husband,its your role to pray for your family and husband because the word of God says a husband is made holly by a wife who prays,meaning be ye faithful to God and He will help you and not trying to remedy sin by sin

    I am so very thankful for the Holy Ghost, and the Comforter along with the Devine Teacher that leads the truth seekers in to all Truth. For me Ephesian 6:10-12 is a very timely Word for me, as the world is growing darker every day, along with the wiles of the devil, the devil is not playing and their are many people who are fainting, they cannot take the wiles of the devil, Call On Jesus

    It is God's divine holiness which we live by that stops all the firey darts of the enemy: Being transformed into the likeness of Christ Romans 8:29 we have the support in Isaiah 11:5 our loins are girdles with righteousness and our reins with faithfulness. The reins are the conscience and the mind; it is the faithful reins that bring into our heart what we aught to live by, and will live by.

    I think you answered your own question why do people still have multiple locks on the door because bad things happen to good people so you must protect yourself and your family just because you are with God and have his armor on does not mean that the people outside are with God and God also said we must be submissive not dumb careles we must forgive but not forget that is what defines us from God
