If all of Ephesians 6:11 isn’t true, is any of it?
I say unequivocally it is. What do you say?
Ephesians 6:11 Amplified Bible (AMP) 11 Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. source
scheme A systematic plan of action (Free Dictionary)
strat·e·gy A plan of action resulting from strategy or intended to accomplish a specific goal. (Free Dictionary)
de·ceit The act or practice of deceiving; deception. A stratagem; a trick. The quality of being deceitful; falseness. (Free Dictionary)
Serious stuff, right? A systematic plan. A plan of action. The practice of deceiving.
So, what would we do if we knew a person with skin on their face had a systematic plan; a plan of action; and practiced deceiving us?
Would we pass it off without a thought? Would we write them off as harmless? Would we deny they exist?
No? Well . . . then.
So. What’s the Evil One up to in your life? Need help?
Romans 8:37 Amplified Bible (AMP) 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. source
