In this discussion, Peter Wang will be speaking on three truths: 1) the reality of spiritual warfare, 2) the schemes of the devil, 3) and how to fight against those schemes.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 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 put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet, put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and persevered in your prayer for all the Lord’s people.”
– Ephesians 6: 10-18
