Summary: This sermon focuses on the real,battle the real enemy and the apparel that we should put on for guaranteed success.
Introduction: Last week, we talked about the Devil’s First and Worse Lie.” We also identified Satan as our arch enemy. Our warfare is not physical but spiritual in nature. While we are occupied by the seen world, the unseen world is wearing us out. I shared last week, concerning the marks of demonic possession and activity in the lives of our youth. One point of interest was that believers can be oppressed but not possessed. Tonight; we shall look at the believer’s clothes for demonic warfare. It’s interesting that believers warfare clothes are not his own but God’s. We are taught in the text to put on the “Whole Armor of God.” The solution to satanic evil is God’s armor. The devil wants you in church clothes but God wants you in Christ’s clothes. We need God’s armor more now than ever before. Demonic forces are on the rise. Armor implies warfare.
