“Thou therefore, my son (and my daughter), be strong in the grace* (G5485 – divine Influence) that is in Christ Jesus . . .
Endure hardness (conflict, adversity), as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. For no man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life (this world) . . . . so that he may please Him Who hath chosen him to be a soldier . . .”
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (not even our own), but against principalities, and against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in the heavens (ref: Ephesians 2:2) . . .
Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God (Theos – Deity, divinity), that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all . . . to stand !”
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (weak, fleshly), but mighty* (full of power) through God, to the pulling down of strongholds, yea, casting down imaginations, and every high thing which exalts itself (Isaiah 14:12-16 and Revelation 12:7-11) against the knowing of God . . . . And bringing into captivity every thought to the perfect obedience of Christ . . . !”

But Israel had chosen their own ways. They had not builded according to the Pattern; but Christ, the True temple for God’s indwelling, molded every detail of His earthly life in harmony with God’s ideal. He said, “I delight to do Thy will, O My God: yea, Thy law is within My heart.” Psalm 40:8.
So our characters are to be builded “for an habitation of God through the Spirit.” Ephesians 2:22. And we are to “make all things according to the Pattern,” even Him Who “suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.” Hebrews 8:5 & 1 Peter 2:21. – Desire of Ages, p.209 Continue reading
