The Armour of God

The Armour of God

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:10-12 KJV

Put on the whole armour of God

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:13

Truth

Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, (vs14). Hold your ground, well defined and sincere. The sincerity of your beliefs must be unquestionable.

The breastplate of righteousness

Stand therefore, …having on the breastplate of righteousness, (vs14). Hold your ground, well covered in the fear of the Lord, ” And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the Lord our God, as he hath commanded us.” Deuteronomy 6:25

The shield of faith

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (vs16).

The helmet of salvation

And take the helmet of salvation…” (vs17). To protect you by night
