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.

Discussion for Ephesians 6

  • Miguel Palacio
    -Often thought of Ephisians 6 as an extremely well written rallying cry to preparation

    The armor of God is righteousness. Once we speak the truth, righteousness, peace and faith. Praying, reading the scriptures for guidance and listening to the Holy Spirit is indeed the whole armor of God. All of these things protect from any evil. What a powerful revelation? If we do what is righteous we will always be safe. Bless the Lord!
  • Matthew Duva
    It becomes tremendously liberating when we make the shift of living onto God rather than man. True reverence is evidenced when we love and honor God so deeply that we would not want to sin because it opposes his ways, word, and character. Living onto God delivers man from the fear of man, it is the one fear that dispels all other fears. Hatred for sin makes us honest at all times and repententful.

    V.17 - We need to take the SWORD 'off the wall', out from under the pomegranate tree (Saul) and take it to the red-light district, take it to the mall, take it into the schools, take it on the job. "If God be for us ..............." So maybe they will threaten you - "who can be against us"? But let's do it with love, not condemnation. To do it with love - we need to PRAY for His blessing.

    Romans 13:12,put on the armour of light.verse 14 put on the Lord Jesus Christ. Isaiah 59:16-17, it is YHWH Himself that puts on the armour. As a Pastor I have always taught that Ephesians 6:13 is what Paul states in Romans 13:14, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, in Him we always have victory!
