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.
For the past several messages I have tried to provide words of encouragement as this country is in a very dark place as we have never experienced before. I have talked about love from different perspectives such as love having no boundaries, us loving one another as God loves us, and we as believers are protected by God as there is safety in Jesus Christ who died for the sins of the world.
That being said, our focus today is standing firm on the truth of God's Word because the truth of God's is what will see us through the evil and dark days we are experiencing here in America. The truth of God's Word will see us through these evil and dark days as we are witnessing all manner of evil and wrongdoings that is emanating from our seat of government.
Scripture tells us the battle that we are currently engaged in, but God has prepared us for this fight. He said us to gird up our loins with the truth (His truth), put on the breastplate of righteousness. We are to wear the gospel of peace as we fight this fight, then we are to have the shield of faith knowing that our God is our mighty warrior who has gone before us in this battle. We are to wear the helmet of salvation, which is our deliverance as we take our sword; God's Word praying as we go with the assurance that victory is our (vv 16-18).
Let me close by saying, victory is our but we must continue fighting for truth, and justice because the stronghold of injustices and wrongdoings is coming to an end. God is a just God, and when His people call on Him, He moves because He hears the cries of the righteous.
Therefore, be encouraged; fight for truth and then justice will prevail.
