Ezekiel 25:17 we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lordwhen I lay my vengeance upon them.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
