...we wrestle ***NOT*** against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. RESIST THE DEVIL, AND HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because YOUR ADVERSARY, THE DEVIL, as a roaring lion, WALKETH ABOUT, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR:
9 WHOM RESIST STEDFAST IN THE FAITH, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
10 But THE GOD OF ALL GRACE, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, AFTER THAT YE HAVE SUFFERED A WHILE, MAKE YOU PERFECT, STABLISH, STRENGTHEN, SETTLE YOU.
11 TO HIM BE GLORY AND DOMINION FOR EVER AND EVER. AMEN.
II Corinthians 10:3 For THOUGH WE WALK IN THE FLESH, WE DO NOT WAR AFTER THE FLESH:
4 (For THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL, BUT MIGHTY THROUGH GOD TO THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONG HOLDS;)
5 CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS, AND *EVERY* HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING INTO CAPTIVITY *EVERY* THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST;
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, BE STRONG IN THE LORD, AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
11 PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF THE DEVIL.
12 FOR WE WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, but against PRINCIPALITIES, against POWERS, against THE RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.
13 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.
14 STAND therefore, having your loins girt about with TRUTH, and having on the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the GOSPEL OF PEACE;
16 ABOVE ALL, taking the shield of FAITH, WHEREWITH YE SHALL BE ABLE TO QUENCH *ALL* THE FIERY DARTS OF THE WICKED.
17 And take the helmet of SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is THE WORD OF GOD:
18 PRAYING ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, AND WATCHING THEREUNTO WITH ALL PERSERVERANCE AND SUPPLICATION FOR ALL SAINTS;
19 AND FOR ME, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
