"Stand Against The Wiles Of The Devil"


"Stand Against The Wiles Of The Devil" (Eph. 6:11).

To All,

"Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL" (Eph. 6:11)

Satan has various "wiles" (cunning arts, deceit, craft, trickery), but Christians need not be ignorant of his "devices" (2 Cor. 2:11).

Satan's "schemes" are:

>> a. Blinding people via false doctrine (2 Cor. 4:3-4; 1 Tim. 4:1-3).

>> b. Enticing people to indulge in illicit desires of the flesh and mind (Eph. 2:1-3).

>> c. Bringing persecution upon those who try to do right (1 Pet. 5:8-9).

Only with the Lord's help can we overcome the wicked one (2 Thess. 3:3; 1 Jn 2:13-14).

We "WRESTLE AGAINST "SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS" (Eph. 6:12). These are demonic "influences" and the "doctrines of demons" (1 Tim. 4:1,2).

When we arm ourselves with Truth, Righteousness, The gospel, Faith, The hope of salvation, The word of God, Prayer ...then we are "strong in the Lord and in the power of His might" (Eph. 6:10).

God Bless,
