Arming for the Struggle

Because the victory has been won we don’t need to fret about the battle. On the other hand our enemy has not stopped fighting and we are still vulnerable. So it is important that we take up the arms we have been given. This is the final key to victory: use the power we’ve been given over the enemy.

Like all struggles, the first key to victory is knowing who our enemy is.
