The Wiles of the Devil
A Sermon on Ephesians 6:10-13
The Whole Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (ESV)
The Fall is the only key to history; the tactics of the devil; the devil's power limited; the manifestation of the power of the devil over man; doubts are the work of the devil; the importance of differentiating between temptation to doubt; and doubt itself; seducing spirits and the spirit of Antichrist; fear and depression the work of the devil; in the light of this teaching; the importance of not giving positions of responsibility to those young in the Christian walk.
