Many people shoot off fireworks to celebrate holidays; if local officials do not allow private use, large public displays are available. Colored lights fill the nighttime sky, loud explosions reverberate and viewers express their approval with "ooh and aah"!
Fireworks do not come with a guarantee of igniting; some simply fail to work. The duds come as no surprise. Disappointment does not last long; dazzling light displays build to the climax of combined colors fired in repetition.
Satan attacks Christians with flaming arrows; we need not fear, they are duds. "In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one (Ephesians 6:16 NIV)." Faith turns flaming weapons into powerless duds. "Ooh, aah"!
