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.

  • Just one who loves His Word for verse 13
    By His Grace, many truths have been revealed to my understanding of how powerful our words are, and our thoughts! What we think is what comes out of our mouths. My thoughts are that we need to consider His Word, in it's over-all message. The battle ground is so often in our minds...lies, evil thoughts, etc... and we cannot fight against them in our own strength! They are spiritual and must be fought spiritually. In other words...we need to have the Word of GOD...His Sword...FULL ARMOR, and be able to speak GOD'S WORD in response, as our defense...our TRUE WEAPON, in order to have any real victory in our lives! These are just my thoughts, but I believe, in faith, they've come from our Great Teacher, the Holy Spirit! God bless and thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts. I hope they might help someone out there. We never receive anything from God just for ourselves!!!
