The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles (schemes, tricks) of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, (Though we may be confronted, even attacked by evildoers, we should not try to fight fire with fire. If need be, we have spiritual weapons to defeat the spirits causing the unsaved to act up.) but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Luciferian kingdom chart)13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, (When is the evil day? Since satan is the god of this earth, every day we should be prepared for evil to come against us) and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, (Some refs. use belt of truth implying God’s word that surrounds us.) having put on the breastplate of righteousness, (Right living according to God’s word is righteousness. The Breastplate protects the heart, and it is by the heart we are judged. Repentance must be sincere.) 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; (What is more effective, confronting someone in anger or violence, or with peace? Remember, Jesus did not come to condemn the world, but to save it. We must remember to walk in Agape Love. (1 Cor. 13) 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. (Since faith comes by hearing the word, then our shield of faith grows stronger the more of the bible we know. We are encouraged to study the bible to show ourselves approved to use God’s word rightly.) 17 And take the helmet of salvation, (Are you sure of your salvation? Click Here to Check Christ is the head of the church; we receive salvation through Christ. So by putting on the Helmet of Salvation, we are putting on Christ and we serve as His representatives. The enemy knows Christ and shudders.) and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; (If you are not convinced by now, you should realize that we don’t fight with flesh and blood, or with physical weapons, but with God’s word. When confronted by evil, we may speak scripture to the enemy which will cut him down with the Sword of the Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that writes the word on our hearts, then calls it up when you need it.) 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end (To this end meaning spiritual warfare.) with all perseverance and supplication (pleading) for all the saints— (Finally, we see that prayer is emphasized as a most important element of spiritual warfare.)
Principalities are the generals over a specific Country and they give orders to the Powers. Look at a country and see what iniquity is prevalent in that country and you can tell what kind of fallen angel is in control. You can usually figure out its name too. It would be interesting to take a map of the world and gather information starting at the country and plot it right down to a city and to an exact point in that city. I am sure you would see a pattern develop. I am sure it exists somewhere and I am sure the Human Principalities are in control of that list.
Powers & Rulers of Darkness are over a specific State, Province, or Territory in a Country. Its getting easier to tell what fallen angel is in control by looking at what is going on in that particular State, Province, or Territory, and they give the orders to the Spiritual wickedness in High places. Lets take for instance the state of Nevada in the good ole USA. You can bet (pun intended) your last dollar that the fallen angel over that state is one that is associated with gambling, drug running, Mafia, prostitution, and all other forms of debauchery. That being true, then you also can bet that he has demons, devils, evil spirits under his control who are just like him.
Spiritual wickedness in High places these are the main ones causing all the trouble, although the others including Lucifer himself is on the scene causing havoc. These are the easiest to identify by iniquity and by name. Within this group are the lowlife’s if you will of evil realm. One or more will be over a county in the state and then One or more will be over a City in that County. Then you will have a whole bunch of the demons/evil spirits who are controlled from there. These are the ones who possess people or animals.
These are the ones who are dealt with 99% of the time. Their main goal is to stifle Churches and stop revival. Its pretty easy most of the time, because pew setters are such willing subjects. Hatred, unforgiveness, drunkards, adulterers, homosexuality, idolatry, false doctrine etc., is so rampant in the church the demons just lounge around watching. If a move of the Holy Spirit starts it is quickly quenched. I have seen it happen many times. The Churches that they have a hard time with they will send in special followers such as witches or Satanists to disrupt and destroy.
