In the kingdom of nature every animal has its enemy, and the enemy will be according to the position and power of each animal. The tiger has the lion, the wasp the hornet, and the fly the wasp. When a man is born into the kingdom of God, and seated in heavenly places, he has more powerful enemies to resist than before. He is then brought into conflict with "principalities, and powers, and wicked spirits" (Eph 6:12). The greater man has the greater foe. But clothed in the whole armour of God we are able to stand.
