And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. ~ Zechariah 13:6, KJV
In many Sunday sermons, preachers have told us that we are not fighting against flesh and blood humans, but rather we are fighting against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world: against the mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against the wicked spirits in the heavenly realm (cf. Ephesians 6:12). This spiritual warfare is why preachers also have told us that in order for us to be “…strong in the Lord, and the power of his might” we must put on the whole armor of the Lord so that we will be knowledgeable about and, therefore, able to stand firm against the Devil’s strategies and tricks (cf. Ephesians 6:10-11).
