Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. -Eph. 6:10

whole armour

Just as we wouldn’t attend a wedding without the ‘wedding garment’ or wedding attire, neither should we do battle without battle attire.  In the Spirit, it is critical and crucial that we come fully dressed for battle because only then can we stand against the tricks, schemes and strategies of the enemy.  No soldier in his right mind would intentionally go out to battle without full battle fatigue and weaponry.  Without the full armour of God, we are lured, enticed, manipulated, persuaded, and beguiled by the cunning trickery of the devil.  And with no offensive weapon, we are defeated!  Because our enemy is constantly on the prowl, the Word cautions us to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (I Peter 5:8).” Because we’re in a war, we are to lay aside the usual foolishness and be on the alert, watchful, subdued in tone, yet keenly aware of our surroundings so as not to become easy prey for the enemy.  Rise up, army of God, put on your holy armor and fight the good fight of faith.  Don’t let the enemy trip you up.  Get in your Word, spend time in prayer and in the company of like-minded believers.  It’s time to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might (Eph. 6).  Take care & be blessed.

    Interesting though that your female soldier has no ‘helmet’ on! Guess Paul should’a accommodation for long hair do’s! 🙂

    I particularly like what you said about no soldier in their ‘Right Mind’!! We were just discussing that very point in Discipleship Class last week that ‘The Right Mind’ like that of Gideon’s 300 is the underlying assumption Paul makes in telling us to ‘Stand’…the mind of Christ is the last piece of armour which was alluded to but not spoken. Roman soldiers whom Paul was likely looking at had a ‘mind’ /’swag’ to them from tons of discipline & training.

    Thanks for the word

    Grace to you.
