Ephesians 6 encourages Christians to put on the whole armor of God so that we may be able to stand against the “wiles” (methods) of the Devil. As a spirit being, Satan does not directly attack people, but rather he works through worldly systems promulgated by humans. Humans who have bought into the Devil’s systems promote his methods, which are designed to confuse, discourage, and ultimately enslave humanity. Ephesians explains the role and purpose of the ministries in the Body of Christ is to equip believers so they are no longer tossed about by these worldly systems of men.
Presently, we are witnessing an all-out assault on humanity through a scheme or system of anarchy. Anarchists promote the idea of “no government,” which appeals to the baser instincts of humanity. However, history shows that anarchy generally devolves into slavery and oppression, for at the end of the day, “He with the biggest stick wins.”
The Book of Judges is a narrative of what humanity can expect to see if anarchy continues. The stories of deception, treachery, and ungodly behavior are shocking, yet the book does offer hope. Ultimately, Judges shows that the ONLY hope for humanity is the government of God where truth, righteousness, and judgment rule the day. Rather than that which is right in our own eyes!
