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.
The ability to withstand the future wiles of the enemy is what I have coined as, “establishment”. Establishment in this context is the fortitude and determination needed to stay in the Will of God until the very final whistle.
The Gospel never allows us to halt between opinions hence irrespective of whoever we are, whatever we are doing, it is a must to always have the mind of Christ. Looking around today, one thing is sure: we are in evil days and there are more evil days ahead.
The apostle wrote to the church in Ephesus that they must put on the armour of God to stand strong and unmovable in whatever that may come their way. 1 Corinthians 10:12 says, “So let the one who thinks he is standing be careful that he does not fall.” You and I need to prepare adequately for the future.
