The light of the world and sanctified (set apart as a powerful witness and instruments of righteousness in the hand’s of the living GOD) therefore, the Holy Bible teaches us to protect ourselves with the whole armor of God.
our minds with the salvation of Jesus Christ (v:17)
our hearts with His righteousness (v:14)
our walk in His Gospel of Holiness (v:15)
with the pure holy truth of His Word (v:14;17)
and by the power of faith (v:16)
We are also called to standing against spiritual darkness and sinful corruption in the evil day and against all the fiery darts and schemes of satan, the will of the flesh and the pride of life (Psalm 91:4/ Ephesians 6:10-20).
Not only are we called by the Lord Jesus Christ to stand against the kingdom of satan, but also to combat against all satanic darkness, corruption, lies, filthiness and wickedness in these last day’s with His complete Gospel of truth (John 1:1-14).
And also by the holy power of God’s Holy Spirit and by the pure holy love for God, and of God our Heavenly Father with a servants heart, living to please the Lord.
So therefore we are to put on the whole armor of GOD and stand firmly against everything that contradicts the Lord, His Holy Bible and in our daily walk against the evil days. Pulling down strongholds in the Spirit (prayer) while pulling people out of the fires of eternal Hell with the truth, of love and with the power of GOD.

*17:53 Ephesians 6:18-20
Never forsake prayer. Prayer keeps us from straying away from the Lord. Prayer keeps us in close communion with God. Prayer pulls down stronghold in the spiritual realm.
Prayer births ministries, prayer strengthens and emboldens ministers of the Lord with the powerful anointing of God.
Half of our spiritual battles are done in prayer, the other half is putting into practice the Holy Bible and preaching His holy truth
