Please Keep the Armor of GOD On!
Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr,
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of GOD, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of GOD, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of Salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of GOD; praying always with all prayer and supplication in The Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints, and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
The armor of GOD is an amazing metaphor for action we need to take in our spiritual lives. Apostle Paul sets the scene for us: We are fighting a war, and the stakes are higher than they have ever been in human history.
Our enemy? Not flesh and blood, no human foe, we fight against a much more fearsome opponent whose forces are described in Ephesians 6:12. Our adversary, Satan the devil, and his host of demons have a single, driving purpose: Obliterate the children of GOD.
Faced with the cares of this world, we can easily forget about the severity of this battle. But make no mistake: Our Spiritually lives and future in God's Kingdom are on the line. If we lose this war, we lose everything. What can we do in the face of such overwhelming odds? Is there any hope Jesus Christ Believers?
Our Apostle Paul has the answer. In Ephesians 6:13, he gives the call to arms. By putting on all of God's armor, which we will be exploring piece by piece in the following lessons, we can be assured of withstanding our enemy's onslaughts. Amen.
We Are Leading All Souls To Our Lord Jesus Christ Only.
