Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 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. Wherefore take unto you THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, AND HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with TRUTH, and having on the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS; And your feet shod with the preparation of the GOSPEL of peace; Above all, taking the shield of FAITH, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of SALVATION, and the sword of THE SPIRIT, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Ephesians 6:10-18. In the world, when there is a dispute about a Thing, it generally breaks down to man against man, fists and knuckles against flesh and bone. That's the world's way of resolving a dispute. But in the Christian's World, THERE IS NO DISPUTE WITH BROTHER AGAINST BROTHER. If A Believer "wrongs" another Believer, it can always be tracked back to Satan and his demons trying to work "things" to BRING Brother against Brother. It starts as a misunderstanding, a harsh word, an absolute lie, a doubt or fear being amplified by the enemy as he, Satan, continues the Attack in the mind. He will do his best to build a "mountain of impossibility" from a little "mole hill of doubt". Satan's bottom line is to try to get a Christian to PHYSICALLY fight his opponent, whether he be Saved or sinner. Christ, and His Attributes, provide everything needed to resolve "the issue" AND stop Satan in his tracks. It's called THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD. Get Dressed in Christ, and, Be Blessed.
