1 Peter 5: 9 (AMP) “Withstand him, be firm in faith [against his onset – rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined] knowing that the same (identical) sufferings are appointed to your brotherhood (the whole body of Christians).
Lastly, in fighting back, you have to be:
a) Firm – it means not soft or yielding when pressed.
It also means not fluctuating, not likely to change, not shaking or trembling.
b) Persevere – that is be ready to resist for as long as necessary.
Having done all, I stand and will keep on standing.
