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

  • Mary
    Paul was in prison when he wrote Ephesians. Tychicus was there with him, and it is a blessing that he was. Paul told us how to fight against the evil spirits and he even gave us instructions on how to dress. Putting on the whole armour, it is all there verses 11 through 18. I love it. If we follow this advice we cannot miss.

    Codes of good practice for children and servants are here. Also, we should “put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places….that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day

    Hi Cheryl; What it means is that there is a spiritual world underlying the physical world as we see it; and that it is not against flesh and blood, but against spirits and their dominions over men and whole regions of the world. We can see that happening in the smallest towns and the largest cities and entire Countries and cultures what great spiritual and moral war right now is everywhere.
