Direct pointing in scripture

Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church addresses the UN
I was watching a video for the RC church presented by my friend Thom as an example of social media done right.  During the video, they flashed several decontextualized verses, but one stood out like a beacon, as if to say "DUUUDE!  Read the rest of this!"  I've been through this before and I know when to listen.  Here's the whole thing in context.
Finally, brethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of his power. Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. (Eph. 6:10-13)
Note that the emphasis isn't mine, but it was put into my head. So, the question is why?

Oh ineffable Divine, Hagia Sophia, Coyote...what are you trying to say to an open-minded and questioning scholar, a gay man who was made by You this way and a 21st century progressive who believes in equality, justice and transparency?

Really now, Dad, could you spell it out more clearly?  Pillars of fire and booming voices are pretty classic, from what I've read.
