How Do I Put on the Full Armor of God?

The why‘.

Ephesians 6:11 KJV
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

GOD’S ARMOR FOR US

We are engaged in a spiritual battle—all believers find themselves subject to the devil’s attacks because they are no longer on the devil’s side. Thus, Paul tells us to use every piece of God’s armor to resist the devil’s attacks and to stand true to God in the midst of those attacks.

Piece of Armor

Belt

Truth

The devil fights with lies, and sometimes his lies sound like truth; but only believers have God’s truth, which can defeat the devil’s lies.

Body armor

Righteousness

The devil often attacks our heart—the seat of our emotions, self-worth, and trust. God’s righteousness is the body armor that protects our heart and ensures his approval. He approves of us because he loves us and sent his Son to die for us.

Shoes

Peace that comes from the Good News

The devil wants us to think that telling others the Good News is a worthless and hopeless task—the size of the task is too big and the negative responses are too much to handle. But the shoes God gives us are the motivation to continue to proclaim the true peace that is available in God—news everyone needs to hear.

Shield

Faith

What we see are the devil’s attacks in the form of insults, setbacks, and temptations. But the shield of faith protects us from the devil’s fiery arrows. With God’s perspective, we can see beyond our circumstances and know that ultimate victory is ours.

Helmet

Salvation

The devil wants to make us doubt God, Jesus, and our salvation. The helmet protects our mind from doubting God’s saving work for us.

Sword

Word of God

The sword is the only weapon of offense in this list of armor. There are times when we need to take the offensive against the devil. When we are tempted, we need to trust in the truth of God’s Word.


Ephesians 6:11-18 KJV

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

[12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places .

[13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

[14] Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

[15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

[16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

[17] And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

[18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Prayer for Mercy in Time of Trouble 

Nothing, NOTHING I said!  Nothing is more powerful than the word of God Almighty!  Read this Psalm slowly. Let His word do its job on each one of us!  Pray Gods own words back to Him with a sincere attitude.  Cry out!

Psalm 6

1 O LORD, do not rebuke me in Your anger,

Nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure. 

2 Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am weak;

O LORD, heal me, for my bones are troubled. 

3 My soul also is greatly troubled;

But You, O LORD—how long?

4 Return, O LORD, deliver me!

Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake

5 For in death there is no remembrance of You;

In the grave who will give You thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning;

All night I make my bed swim; 

I drench my couch with my tears. 

7 My eye wastes away because of grief;

It grows old because of all my enemies.

8 Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity;

For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping. 

9 The LORD has heard my supplication;

The LORD will receive my prayer. 

10 Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled;

Let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as division soul and spirit,of both joints and marrow and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Do you believe the word of God? 

Do you have faith that God will do what He says He will do?

I pray we each have the help of the Holy Spirit to hold on tightly to God and the the goodness He has given each of us!  Amen



Division? Why surprised…were we not told?

The time is here.
The time has been here!
Why do we continually question things when we were clearly told?
Why does much of the world find it easier to believe a mere man such as a president of a country than to believe the sacred and Holy Word of God?
Pray, open the Word and read it. My grandmother lived in a time when much of the bible must have been hard to understand, but she still believed it with all her heart! WE NOW LIVE IN A TIME WHERE ALL THE THINGS WRITTEN ARE POSSIBLE AND WE CAN SEE THEY ARE POSSIBLE!

Jesus spoke these words concerning division and signs.

Luke 12:51-57
51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.
52 From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother–in–law against daughter–in–law and daughter–in–law against mother–in–law.”

Interpreting the Times
54 He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. 55 And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. 56 Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time?

57 “Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?

I will add this little clip. I found it interesting. I believe there is already much deception in this world right now! How long has Al Gore been telling people about climate change? Is it merely an accident that as he tried to quote words of Jesus that he was silenced? You decide.
