Our battle is not against other people. “Our wrestling” is rather “against the rulers of this darkness” and “against the spirits of wickedness.” We battle “principalities and power” that exist “in high places.”
For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.
And our position in this battle is defensive.
Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect.
We are called to take up “the armour of God.” With this armor – the Word – we “resist in the evil day.” Our position in this battle is “to stand in all things perfect.”
And where is our perfection? In Christ. As we stand in Christ and in the Word of God, we overcome.
