Ephesian 6:12-17.

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 breast-plate of righteousness;  And you 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.                                                                 *Whole armour = complete,all. protective article of warfare.    Shield of faith = the Shield is Christ Himself.   Helmet of salvation = knowing Whom you belong.

  1. Flesh and blood = human beings. Principalities = rule,chief,rank,position;Satan is the Prince of this world. Rulers = World rulers. Powers = Dominion,might,great strength. Darkness = Absent of light;shadiness,ie.obscurity-the present order of things. Spiritual wickedness = Host; wicked spirits of the evil One. High places = heavenlies.
