The battle’s not with flesh but for the soul,
Against an enemy with cunning wiles,
An evil set to wrestle for control
With arguments and force or charm and smiles.
He wants to take your friends and family,
Your church, your neighborhood, your country, too.
There is one thing that you can both agree:
The time grows short; there’s much work left to do.
Don’t take this foe for granted; don’t you sleep!
The battle’s now; keep God’s whole armor on!
With prayer within your heart and courage keep;
With Jesus by your side success is drawn!
The rulers of the darkness of this world
Don’t stand a chance; let Christ’s whole flag unfurl!
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.
Ephesians 6:12 KJV
