Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.” Ephesians 6:11-12 AMP

When we submit to the authority placed by God in His Church, because submitting God’s spiritual government is the same as submitting to Him, we can withstand the strategies of the enemy against us. That’s why Paul the apostle started with Ephesians 6:1-10.

For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), Being in readiness to punish every [insubordinate for his] disobedience, when your own submission and obedience [as a church] are fully secured and complete.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 AMP

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 10:6: … When your submission and obedience (as an individual or a church) are fully secured and complete.

In other words, submission and obedient to God is the key of living in absolute dominion above all powers, thrones, principalities and spiritual wickedness in high places and rulers of darkness of this world.

Conclusively, we submit to God to rule as priests and kings in this world in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. I rule as a priest and king of God Almighty for I am a submissive and obedient child in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
