Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Ephesians 6:10-11
Every believer finds himself in a spiritual struggle against the forces of evil (Ephesians 6:10-13). The devil and his demons, though unseen, scheme and act against us, trying to draw us away from the Lord, and even to destroy us. However, God has not left us defenseless. He protects us and he has given us the means to resist these enemies and to win. In fact, the Lord has already conquered our spiritual enemies and has given us his victory (Romans 8:37-38).
This struggle against the spiritual hosts of evil is often called spiritual warfare. As you will see, all forms of occultism are the devil’s domain, and the believer must not take part in them. It is surprising how much our cultures include various forms of occultism. Therefore you will find this study practical and necessary for your walk with the Lord.
