“There is a battle going on. Keep your eyes open and your sword sharp!”

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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 6:10-12

Now, it’s always been war. We never come into the Church to come to a picnic. We must realize we are coming to battleground. What we need tonight is soldiers to possess every Divine promise of this Bible, whole armor of God, and to stand. It’s what we need, soldiers; not get a uniform for a dress parade. — Rev. William Branham

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit…” Ephesians 6:13-18

If there’s no battle, then there’s no victory. But you’ve got to have a battle to have victory. If it was just given to you, it wouldn’t be—wouldn’t be no—wouldn’t be a victory. But he that overcometh is the one who has the victory. So Jesus came to the earth; He had a battle; He won the victory. — Rev. William Branham

In Jesus, we win!
