GET DRESSED,

GET DRESSED,

EPHESIANS 6:10-20

 

“WE TEND TO MAKE THREE MISTAKES REGARDING EVIL IN THE WORLD: FIRST, WE IGNORE EVIL WHEN IT DOESN’T HIT US IN THE FACE. SECOND, WE ARE SURPRISED WHEN IT DOES. THIRD, WE REACT IN IMMATURE AND DANGEROUS WAYS WHEN IT DOES.” N.T. WRIGHT

 

 

THE ADVERSARY, Vv. 10-12

 

“WHEN IT COMES TO THE DEMONIC, PEOPLE USUALLY FALL INTO ONE OF TWO ERRORS – EITHER THEY TAKE HIM ALTOGETHER TOO SERIOUSLY OR THEY DO NOT TAKE HIM SERIOUSLY ENOUGH.” C.S. LEWIS

 

   THE DECLARATION, 10

 

   THE DECEPTION, 11

 

   THE DOMAIN, 12

 

“IF ONCE THE CURTAIN WERE PULLED BACK AND THE SPIRITUAL WORLD BEHIND IT CAME TO VIEW, IT WOULD EXPOSE OUR SPIRITUAL VISION A STRUGGLE SO INTENSE, SO CONVULSIVE, SWEEPING EVERYTHING WITHIN IT’S RANGE, THAT THE FIERCEST BATTLE EVER FOUGHT ON EARTH WOULD SEEM, BY COMPARISON, A MERE GAME. NOT HERE, BUT UP THERE – THAT IS WHERE THE REAL CONFLICT IS WAGED.” ABRAHAM KUYPER

 

 

THE ARMOR, Vv.13-17

 

   THE BELT OF TRUTH, 14

 

TRUTH IS THE ABSOLUTE STANDARD BY WHICH REALITY IS MEASURED …

 

   THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, 14

 

TRUTH IS OUR UNDERSTANDING OF GOD – RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OUR RESPONSE TO THAT KNOWLEDGE …

 

   THE SHOES OF PEACE, 15

 

THE STABILITY THAT COMES FROM GOD’S PEACE …

 

   THE SHIELD OF FAITH, 16

 

THE SHIELD WAS MEANT TO EXTINGUISH THE MISSILES OF THE ENEMY …

 

   THE HELMET OF SALVATION, 16

 

THE ASSURANCE OF SALVATION …

 

   THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, 17

 

RHEMA – THE UTTERANCE, DECLARATION …

 

 THE ARENA, Vv.18

 

THE APPLICATION:

 

“TAKE THE SUPERNATURAL SERIOUSLY AND REALIZE THAT WE ARE IN A WARFARE THAT CANNOT AND SHOULD NOT BE DOMESTICATED BY REINTERPRETING EVERYTHING IN THE BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW SO THAT IT FITS NICELY WITH SECULAR, NATURALISTIC WAYS OF THINKING ABOUT THE WORLD. BE READY FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY AS WELL AS THE ORDINARY WAYS THAT EVIL SPIRITS WORK. DON’T BE PRESUMPTUOUS, AS THOUGH DEMONS WERE WEAK: AND DON’T BE ANXIOUS, AS THOUGH THEY WERE STRINGER THAN JESUS.”

Wednesday Night Classes - Resume

February 10 @ 7pm all of our classes will be back in session.

 

More of our people need to take advantage of what is offered on Wednesday nights. These classes are not for a select few but for every “Stonian”!

 

If you have never attended, or haven’t been in a long time, I encourage you to be with us this Wednesday night. It will simply be the best investment of an hour that you can make on a Wednesday. We hope to see you there!
