Ephesians 6:11“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

Satan and his world’s system are after us. They are influencing us by what we see and what we long for. Listen, we are living in a time because of technology that the schemes of the devil are far reaching. Paul is instructing us to put on the full armor of God because the schemes of the devil are here, and they are coming, and you do not want to be deceived. How do you put on the full armor of God? The full armor of God is Christ Himself. It is not something that you have to work at and do. It is to know that you are in Christ and that Christ is in you. It is not isolation from the world, it is that you are insulated because you are in Christ and He is in you, and then walk yielded by the power of the Holy Spirit and you will be walking in His fullness. You will be covered in His full armor because you are in Christ and Christ is in you.
