FULL ARMOR of GOD

 

Ephesians 6:10-11

King James Version

10 Finally, my brethren, 

be strong in the Lord, 

and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, 

that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.


The battle for your soul is real.

As real as can be.

Even if you can't see your enemies.

For the battle is being waged in spirit.

GOD is a SPIRIT.

John 4:24

King James Version

24 God is a Spirit: 

and they that worship him 

must worship him in spirit and in truth.


The enemy is a spirit.

Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 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.


GOD's SPIRIT is in those who believe in His SON, JESUS, and in those who are true born agains.

1 Corinthians 2:12

King James Version

12 Now we have received, 

not the spirit of the world, 

but the spirit which is of God; 

that we might know the things 

that are freely given to us of God.


Man-made armor cannot hack it.

You must wear GOD's ARMOR.

Ephesians 6:13-18

King James Version

13 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.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about with truth, 

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod 

with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, 

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer 

and supplication in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto with all perseverance 

and supplication for all saints;
