This Month Series:
Come and join us in this step-by-step Revelatory Series. This lesson is strategically administered from our very own Apostle George Smith, where he’s unearthing the “tombs” in our lives that have been lying dormant, secretly wreaking havoc and equipping us with the “God-given Armor” necessary to break free – and remain free!! You DO NOT want to miss it!! Our service begins promptly at 11 a.m. – SEE YOU THERE!!
ARMOR OF GOD; BELT OF TRUTH Eph. 6:14
Even though our lives are lived out in these bodies of flesh, our warfare does not originate there. Our battle is a spiritual one that deals with spiritual arguments.
Our weaponry – the armor of God is designed to pull down strongholds. Arguments, ideas and thoughts are what Paul is stressing here. Even disobedience.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
There are many elements of and to spiritual warfare, but some of the most destructive things that happen to us, happens in our minds through conversations, thoughts dwelt on and words spoken.
Words and thoughts can be very destructive. Thoughts can be directly from Satan and his demons, or they can have their source in what others say.
If you haven’t been reading the Bible and allowing the Holy Spirit to apply it in your life, then no amount of confession is going to actually fasten the belt of truth around you! You put on the belt of truth by receiving the Truth, focusing on HIM WHO IS TRUTH.
All the pieces of the armor of God, listed in Ephesians 6, are different aspects of who Jesus is to us.
