Satan’s Goal in this Interim Between Christ’s Two Advents

All of the weapons mentioned in Ephesians 6 that the Spirit has placed at our disposal in this warfare focus on the delivery of the gospel to the ends of the earth, to our neighbors in their unbelief, and to believers in their constant struggle to hold fast to their confession.  A church that drops its armor and weapons — namely, the gospel as ti comes to the world in Word and sacraments — is Satan’s goal in this interim between Christ’s two advents.
