The Armour of God #1

  • In Ephesians 6:10-12 it says, "A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places." (New Living Translation) 
  • ARMOR. [1.any covering worn as a defense against weapons. 2.a suit of armor. 3.a metallic sheathing or protective covering,] Armor has been used since Bible times. The typical list of armor would be the helmet, shield, belt, shoes, sword, and breastplate.
  • The Belt of Truth is the first piece of armor on the list in the Bible. The belt is what holds things up, and if we are honest and tell the truth, we can hold up many things in this life like: reputations, friendships, and trust. If we do what is right, we are obeying God, and continuing our journey in faith.
  • TRUTH means [1.the true or actual state of a matter: He tried to find out the truth. 2.
    conformity with fact or reality; verity: the truth of a statement. 3.a verified or indisputable fact, proposition, principle, 4.the state or character of being true.
    5.actuality or actual existence.]
  • God bless!
