Armor of God – standing firm against the enemy!

29 12 2012

fallen angelThis is the final post in our series who is the devil really, where using attributes (qualities or features regarded as characteristics or inherent parts of someone or something) found in scripture we have discovered who the devil truly is.

The devil was an unsatisfied angel who chose to roam the earth tempting and influencing mankind, striving to steal, kill and destroy our relationship with God and our place in heaven until the day he finally is sent for eternity to hell. God knows the devil is someone we are sure to encounter. And so we close here in Ephesians 6 as God encourages us to use the armor he provided through our relationship with him.

 Eph 6:14  “Be ready! Let the truth be like a belt around your waist, and let God’s justice protect you like armor” (breastplate).

Eph 6:15  “Your desire to tell the good news about peace should be like shoes on your feet.”

Eph 6:16  “Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”

Eph 6:17  “Let God’s saving power be like a helmet, and for a sword use God’s message that comes from the Spirit.”

God’s Armor is amazing for it is founded on and through our relationship with God. That is why God’s truth is our belt, his justice our breastplate, his message of peace are our shoes, faith in him our shield, his saving power our helmet and his spirit unction our sword!

These words remind us that greater is HE that is in us than he who is in the world!

Blessings and Complete Joy,
