1 Born for Battle! Ephesians 6:10-18

2 Ephesians 6:10-18 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 

3 Ephesians 6:10-18 14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all  perseverance and petition for all the saints, 

4 Understanding the Battle
Our spiritual battles are real. Do we even want to fight? We are either victors or victims. Matthew 28:18 Do you want all that God has for you on this earth right now, or do you want to wait until you get to heaven to receive the victory and blessings?

Ephesians 6 Hebrews 11:3 2 Kings 6:11-17. Daniel 10:7-14 The invisible realm and our own are inextricably linked. Cause and effect flow back and forth.

11 Part 3: The Battle Within Us (4)
Putting on the armour of God is putting on Jesus and all that He has gained for us through His blood. We stand clothed in Jesus Victory over sin and death. The real war within us is not between demons and angels, it is between truth and lie. 1 Corinthians 2:2

The ultimate truth of Jesus defeats the Father of lies. Fill your mind with Christ The great question is not “Who will win,” but “Who will stand in Jesus name!” Christ is enough!
