  • Armour of God

    1. 1. THE ARMOUR OF GOD<br />God’s Will for us<br />Ephesians 6:10-18<br />
    2. 2. What is the Armour of God?<br />God's armor brings victory because it is far more than a protective covering. It is the very life of Jesus Christ Himself.<br />
    3. 3. What is the Armour of God?<br />This wonderful truth has become reality to all who believe and follow Jesus. When you put on His armor, His life surrounds you and keeps you safe in Him. <br />"Put on the armor," wrote Paul in his letter to the Romans, ”…put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ..." (Romans 13:12-14)<br />When you do, He becomes your hiding place and your shelter in the storm -- just as He was to David. Hidden in Him, you can count on His victory, for He not only covers you as a shield, He also fills you with His life.<br />“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5)<br />Since living in the safety of the armor means oneness with Jesus, we can expect to share His struggles as well as His peace. Remember, God offers us His victory in the midst of trouble -- not the absence pain. <br />So, we should not be surprised at “the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s suffering…” (1 Peter 4:12,13)<br />He is your precious friend, and you are His! So "put on Christ." (Galatians 3:27) He is your victory!<br />
    4. 4. How do I “put on” God’s Armour?<br />By knowing and trusting each part of the armour.<br />
    5. 5. 1st Piece Belt of Truth<br />God's revelation of all that He is to us, all that He has done for us, and all that He promises to do for us in the days ahead.<br />This wonderful, everlasting TRUTH is written in the Bible, revealed by the Holy Spirit, and realized through Jesus Christ.<br />
    6. 6. Belt of Truth<br />It cuts through all the world's distortions, deceptions, and compromises. <br />When you study, memorize, live, and follow TRUTH, He enables you to see the world from God's high vantage point. For He is the Truth! <br />Putting on the first piece of the armor means feeding on truth through daily Bible reading and making it part of yourself.<br />“I am the WAY, TRUTH and LIFE..” John 14:6<br />Psalms 18:1-3, 23:1<br />Deuteronomy 4:39<br />
    7. 7. Belt of Truth Prayer<br />Thank you, my Lord, for showing us the TRUTH about Yourself, Your plans and Your ways. Thank You for reminding us that You are the only God, the Creator of heaven and earth, the King of the universe, our Father who loves us, and our Shepherd who leads us. You are our wisdom, our counselor, our hope, and our strength. You are everything I need each day! Amen<br />

    10. 10. Breastplate of RighteousnessPrayer<br />Thank You God, for showing us the truth about ourselves -- that on our own we could never be good enough to live in your presence. Thank you for taking our sins to the cross and offering me your perfect, RIGHTEOUS life.  Lord, show us any sin that I need to confess right now, so that nothing will hinder us from being filled to overflowing with your Spirit.

    26. 26. Summary – THE ARMOUR OF GOD<br />
    27. 27. Pen of Inspiration<br />The great conflict now being waged is not merely a strife of humans against humans. On the one side stands the Prince of Life, acting as our substitute and surety; on the other [stands] the prince of darkness, with the fallen angels under his command.... “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” <br />There will be a sharp conflict between those who are loyal to God and those who cast scorn upon His law. The church has joined hands with the world. Reverence to God’s law has been subverted. The religious leaders have taught for doctrine the commandments of men. As it was in the days of Noah, so it is in this age of the world.... The truly loyal will not be carried away by the current of evil. They will not throw scorn and contempt on that which God has set apart as holy. The test comes to everyone. There are only two sides. Which are you on? Manuscript 39, 1899<br />
