I am locked and loaded and ready to battle with my King! What about you? merely words, but weapons.....continue to FIGHT!

Fellow believers . . . We are at WAR! We cannot hide our heads or keep our eyes shut. We cannot keep quiet any longer. Take up your weapons and right . . . if you truly are in God's army! 
Oh . . . It's time . . . I don't know about you, but I am tired of folks being left behind, lost, and confused by Satan . . . especially our youth! I am locked and loaded and ready to battle with my King! What about you?

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 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. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,  and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 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, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. (Ephesians 6:10-20)

We have heard these words of Paul before, but they are not merely words, but weapons! So important in fact , that he mentions this warfare again:
 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the fleshFor the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.(2 Corinthians 10:3-6)

Are we acting like "new creatures in Christ"?

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are o...
