To be at peace with the world, the flesh, and the devil, is to be at enmity with God, and in the broad way that leads to destruction. We have no choice or option. The promises to the Seven Churches in Revelation are only “to him that overcomes.” We must fight or be lost. We must conquer or die eternally. We must put on the whole armor of God. “He who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one” (Eph. 6:11; Luke 22:36).
