“Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11, NASB)
Here the verb “stand” means “hold your ground.” It is not, in modern parlance, a command to march – to invade foreign territory in order to occupy and subdue it … “Stand” implies that the ground disputed by the enemy is really His, and therefore ours … That is perhaps why the armour described here is largely defensive. For the territory is His. We do not need to fight to gain a foothold on it. We only need to hold it against all challengers.”
(from A Table in the Wilderness by Watchman Nee, November 6th)
