Satan would love to weaken our 


efforts to pursue God.

Let us observe how Jesus employed 


the Word of God to counter the devil. 


Let us also find strength in the 


sufficiency of God. Let us depend on a


humble and personal walk with God to 


overcome challenges, obstacles, and 


the evil one... as opposed to being self-


righteous and externally 


displaying a feast to the ego... 


never good.

The Scriptures are very clear on the 


existence of spiritual warfare.

"Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all


of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm 


against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting 


against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers 


and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty 


powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the 


heavenly places." 


Ephesians 6:10-12

The best way to expose Satan and 

his lies... is to know the Truth. When 

we know the truth... we will know

 what is false. 

If we are not relying on God's truth, 

we can easily blunder.

It is important that we do not become


 haughty or arrogant with human pride.


 We are powerless... without God. 


In our own strength and power, we 


have no chance of defeating the 


“spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly


 realms.”  Only the “Full Armor of 


God” will equip us to 


withstand spiritual attacks. 


We can only be strong in God’s power 


and authority; it is God’s Armor that 


protects us.

For though we live in the world, we 


are not of the world. We do not wage 


war as the world does. We use God's 


mighty weapons, not worldly weapons.



The weapons we fight with are not 


the weapons of the world. 


On the contrary, they have divine 


power to demolish strongholds! 


2 Corinthians 10:4


Our battle is against spiritual forces of 


evil in the world.

The armor of God is described in Ephesians 6:10-18.


 In this passage we are told that our primary battles are of 


a spiritual nature and that we need spiritual armor to be 


able to stand firm in the midst of these battles. 


How we begin our day is key towards 


overcoming the daily battles that we 


will inevitably face.

A soldier is only ready for battle when he is girded with 


his belt. To be fitted with our belt, means we are ready to 


face the day.


Truth is the belt that holds the armor stable. Our Highest


Truth can be found in God’s Word, in the person of Jesus 


Christ. (John 14:6) We must know this Truth in order to 


protect ourselves against our flesh, the world, and the 


Father of Lies. Truth grounds us and calls our attention to 


our identity in Christ.

Our breastplate is God's righteousness. God's 


righteousness will never fail. Being rooted and grounded 


in God’s Word is powerful protection for our hearts. 


Our sandals with the Gospel of Peace are a firm 


foundation. With our shoes of peace we are able to go and 


share our testimonies with others. The way we walk 


through life will be seen by many. When we carry 


ourselves with the fruit of the spirit, people will want to


know more about the God we serve.


We must Spiritually dress for success 


by putting the Spiritual Armor of God 


on, daily.

We must put on the full armor of God so that we are able 


to stand against the schemes of Satan and fight for the 


truth of God. 


Ephesians 6:10-20

Put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil 


comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after 


you have done everything, to stand.


Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your 


waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and 


with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from 


the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the


shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the 


flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of 


salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of 


God.

Our primary battles are of a spiritual 


nature and we need Spiritual Armor to 


be able to stand firm in the midst of 


these battles.

Remember:

The thief enters only to steal, kill, and destroy.

Who exactly is Satan?


 He is the one in Scripture who is called the “Evil one.” 


Satan is also called the devil, who possesses abhorrent 


qualities. He is referred to in Scripture as the accuser, the


 slanderer, the adversary, the enemy, the father of lies, the 


murderer, the wicked one, and the deceiver who leads 


humanity astray by seducing humanity into the ways of 


lies and sin.

Satan is also described as a malicious, hostile, 


evil-intentioned, evil-minded, venomous, vindictive,  


accuser and adversary who is opposed to God and man.


The Scriptures describe Satan as one who exists in the 


invisible spirit realm. 


Job 1:6

Paul says in Ephesians, 


“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.”


When engaged in spiritual warfare 


we must walk, live, and share truth, 


live righteously, proclaim the gospel 


of peace, taking up the shield of faith, 


wearing salvation as a helmet, 


and equipping ourselves with God’s 


Word as our sword.

Spiritual warfare is a very real part of 


life, but should not be an opportunity 


for either fear or pride. Instead, the 


reality of Satan and his evil forces 


should cause us to draw nearer to 


God.

Spiritual warfare is not about a


 technique to defeat Satan or his


 demons, but is all about having a


 heart that walks closely with God. 


When God is first and foremost in 


our lives... Satan lacks power over us.
