We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places
— Ephesians 6:12
The whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.
— First John 5:19
This is the spiritual warfare we are fighting. Therefore, we have to put on the whole armor of God. Put on your local church life; put on the body of Christ. Love Jesus, and love your fellow believers. Give yourself to Jesus, and give yourself to your brothers and sisters. When you are living such a life, you live under its covering and protection.
