“Where redeemed man is concerned, the Father calls him into a ministry of authority with His Son, the rightful Ruler of earth. . . . . So, today, every consecrated hand that lifts the rod of the authority of the Lord against the unseen powers of darkness is directing the throne power of Christ against Satan and his hosts in a battle that will last until ‘the going down of the sun,’ that is, until life’s day is ended.”1

Ephesians 6:10-12 (NLT) – “. . . 10) Be strong with the Lord’s mighty power.  11) Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil.  12) For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.”

Psalm 91:1-4,11 (KJV, NKJV, NIV, NLT combined & personalized) – “1) S/He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.  2) I will say of my God, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; my God in Him do I trust’.  3) Surely He saves me from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome/perilous pestilence.  4) He covers me with His feathers, and under His wings I find refuge; His faithfulness is my armor and protection. . . . . 11) For He commands His angels to protect me wherever I go.”

2 Thessalonians 3:3 (NKJV) – “But the LORD is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”

Psalm 34:7 (NLT) – “The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear (God), and delivers them.”

Psalm 118:6-7 (NLT, NIV, KJV combined & personalized) – “6) The LORD is for me, I am not afraid. What can man do to me?  7) The LORD taketh my part among the ministering spirits who help me; I look in triumph on my enemies.”

Psalm 5:11 (NIV, NKJV combined) – “11) But let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever shout for joy, because You spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your name may rejoice in You.
