All Glory to God!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your
stand against the devil's schemes. 12For our struggle is
not against flesh and blood, but agai nst the rulers,
against the authorities, against the powers of this dark
world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the
heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of
God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be
able to stand your ground, and after you have done
everything, to stand. 14Stand firm.
1.. Helmet of salvation: Rom 1:16a;
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it
is the power of God to salvation for
everyone who believes;
2. Belt of truth: John 14:6; John 8:32
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me. 32Then
you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
3. Shield of faith, Hebrews 11:1-3, Rom:10:17(NKJV);
Mat: 17:20b(NIV). Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders
obtained a good testimony.
17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the
word of God. if you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there'
and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."
4. Feet prepared and ready: Psa 119:105; Psa 18:33;
Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light to my path.33
He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
And sets me on my high places. "How beautiful are the
feet of those who bring good news!"[g
5. And I put on the breastplate of righteousness; Rom
1:17a; Rom 3:22, 24; Rom 1:17d
For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,
22This righteousness from God comes through faith in
Jesus Christ to all who believe. 24and are justified freely
by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ
Jesus. c] just as it is written: "The righteous will live by
faith."[d] 6. Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
2Cor1:21-22; Acts 1;8
Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in
Christ. He anointed us, 22set his seal of ownership on us,
and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit,
guaranteeing what is to come. 8But you will receive
power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will
be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and
Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
7. Pray always with all prayer and supplication in the
Spirit: Rom 8:26-27; 1John 5:14-15
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We
do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit
himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot
express. 27And he who searches our hearts knows the
mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the
saints in accordance with God's will. 14This is the
confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask
anything according to his will, he hears us. 15And if we
know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that
we have what we asked of him.
