Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God. The ancient soldier was not equipped for war until he had put on his armor.

  • Arinda on Ephesians 6:11
    Ephesians 6 11 Putting on the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil to me means just simply studying the word and knowing exactly what we have in Jesus if we apply the word. Psalms explains how the word is a lamp for us. How can you be guided by the lamp if you do not know how to use it. The devil is very smart and has all kinds of devices that he is using in this present world to slowly destroy us all the way starting from the tv and now all the smartphones so many forms of evil communications that is available for this generation. If you have the word in your heart and in your mind then you can fight the devil trys to steal people 's mind if he can control the way you think then he already has a weapon to fight with. The bible states how a man thinketh in his heart then so is he. So we first must get rooted and grounded in the word so therefore we can fight.
