Spiritual Warfare

REMEMBER THIS:
JESUS is more powerful than any power of darkness.
The NAME of JESUS has more authority than any name.
HIS very presence can be near you, and HIS Heavenly Angels
that excel in strength can be by your side - if you only ASK HIM.

Ephesians 6:11-13
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 take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

The tempter can never compel us to do evil. He cannot control minds unless they are yielded to his control. The will must consent, faith must let go its hold upon Christ, before Satan can exercise his power upon us. But every sinful desire we cherish affords him a foothold. Every point in which we fail of meeting the divine standard is an open door by which he can enter to tempt and destroy us. The Desire of Ages p.125
