Ephesians 6:10 tells us "Finally be strong in the Lord".
Something extremely important is put at the end of the letter.
Ephesians 1:4-5 tells us God has chosen us to be holy and blameless.
God has made us to be blameless in His sight.
In Ephesians 1:9-10 we learn that God has made known to us the mystery of His will.
It was not our choice.
When the angels appeared at the birth of Christ they said "Glory to God in the highest, peace to men".
God was establishing peace from heaven to mankind.
In Ephesians 1:13 we learn that we were included in Christ when we heard the message of truth.
So far all we have had to do is walk in what God has given us.
We have the seal of the Holy Spirit who reveals all truth to us.
John 14:26 tells us "But the advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said.
Ephesians 2:1-10 tells us God who is rich in mercy made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions.
What have done to earn that?
All we have had to do is believe in Jesus.
It is by grace we have been saved through faith. It is the gift of God. Not by works so we cannot boast.
Ephesians 4:11-14 says "And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;".
Ephesians 6:10-18 says "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour 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 fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 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 always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people".
John 14:6 tells us "Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me".
We need to STAND.
James 4:7-8 says "Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you".
Luke 4:1-13 says "Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted[a] by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.” The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.” The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written: “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.” Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.” When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time".
Mark 1:12-13 says "At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him".
Jesus fought satan with the armour "IT IS WRITTEN", satan left Him "until an opportune time", and angels attended Him.
