Truth is inspiring, it is guarded by GOD, and will triumph over all opposition!

Armor of God

 

 

 

God’s armor brings victory because it is far more than a protective covering.

 

 

Belt of TRUTH

 

 

God: the Father, Yeshua, Holy Spirit
His sovereignty, love, wisdom, and holiness.

 

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist.” Ephesians 6:14

 

Roman soldiers wore a linen undergarment next to the skin, covered by a woolen one–piece tunic that came down to the knees. It was shaped like a “T” with a hole at the top for the head. It was sewn on two sides and generally had half sleeves. At times they were dyed, but most often they were the natural color of wool. The colored tunic was usually reserved for army commanders, the wealthy or those of the government status.
Over the tunic they placed a breastplate. At the bottom of the breastplate they wore a heavy belt made of connected bronze plates and leather with a buckle very similar to what we use today. This belt had one function. It served as the foundation on which the sword, dagger and metal apron were attached.

 

Application: Yeshua Is The Truth

 

This belt was foundational for battle. In short, it supported the weapons that allowed the soldier to fight. The belt is a reminder that Yeshua is the foundation for spiritual battle. He is the truth that stands against the lies and deception of Satan. “Yeshua is the way and the truth” – the very basis for life. To win our spiritual battles our fight must be anchored to the truth found in Yeshua alone.
Belt of Truth keeps it all together! It keeps us secure in Christ and the rest of our armor effective. Truth is sincerity of our heart and pureness of motives.
2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Psalm 91:4 His truth shall be your sheild and buckler.

Giving Thanks;

 

Thank you, my Lord, for showing me the TRUTH about Yourself, Your plans and Your ways. Thank You for reminding me that You are the only God, the Creator of heaven and earth, the King of the universe, my Father who loves me, and my

 

 

Shepherd who leads me. You are my wisdom, my counselor, my hope, and my strength. You are everything I need each day!

Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS

 

 

The holy and perfect righteousness of Yeshua in those who are “born again” and filled with His Spirit.
Yeshua and His blood, which cleanses us from sin. The cross which frees us from bondage to selfish nature.

 

“…with the breastplate of righteousness in place…” Ephesians 6:14

 

The typical breastplate used by the Roman legions fell into four categories. Some were made out of leather and some out of small interwoven brass rings. High ranking officers sometimes had breastplates produced from a single piece of molded bronze.
The design pictured here uses overlapping Bronze scales. The bronze scale armor was in two pieces and was sewn to a short leather vest. The two halves were tied together with short strips of leather in the back and in the front. Bronze, although not the strongest metal known in the first century, had the advantage of being lightweight.
In this era, when hand–to–hand combat was almost always necessary, soldiers had to balance protection with ease of movement. The discomfort of the breastplate around the neck was usually softened by a woolen scarf.

 

Application: Yeshua Is Our Righteousness

 

The function of the breastplate was simple – to protect the soldier’s vital organs. In close hand–to–hand combat the breastplate was essential for survival. No trained Roman soldier would venture into battle without it. If we start to believe that our own righteousness, effort, or good works can make us worthy of God’s protection, the advantage quickly changes to benefit our enemy. Our righteousness is worthless in the battle. We need to get our eyes off of ourselves and back on the provision of the cross and the righteousness that is found in a relationship with Yeshua.
Breastplate of Righteousness covers our chest and protects our heart. We are worthy to stand before God because of Jesus. Often times our heart harbours feelings of resentment, unforegivness and hate. Forgiveness is important in the Christian walk.
I Thessolonians 5:8 therefore, let us be sober and put on the breastplate (corslet) of faith and love and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

 

Recognize & Resist:

 

The natural goodness, connectedness, and sacredness of all life. (Paganism)

 

Giving Thanks;

 

Thank You for showing me the truth about myself — that on my own I could never be good enough to live in your presence. Thank you for taking my sins to the cross and offering me your perfect, RIGHTEOUS life. Lord, show me any sin that I need to confess right now, so that nothing will hinder me from being filled to overflowing with your Spirit.

 

[Take time for confession] Thank you for forgiving me and for filling me with your RIGHTEOUS life.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 


 

Sandals of PEACE

 

 

Inner peace and readiness
Our peace through our union and ongoing relationship with Yeshua.

 

“…and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.” Ephesians 6:15

 

The shoes worn by the Roman warrior generally came in the “sandal” variety. They had thick leather soles that were studded with small nails to provide stability in hand–to–hand combat. The sandals came up above the ankle and were held securely to the foot by extensive leather straps.
To survive cold weather climates, soldiers would fill the sandal with heavy wool or fur before lacing up. In some cases, Roman commanders would wear an early version of a boot. It had a thick leather sole and was either split down the front or on each side to allow entry. Straps were sewn to the back and wrapped up the leg to hold the boot securely.

 

Application: Yeshua Is Our Preparation and Peace

 

Without his sandals, a soldier would not be prepared to fight and could be easily defeated. Paul tells us that our preparation for battle is the gospel (good news) of Yeshua’s life, death and resurrection. The work of Yeshua here on earth brought us peace with God. This reconciliation through Yeshua allows us to fight with boldness, confidence, perseverance, and peace.
Shoes of Peace are to cover the believer’s feet. Peace is reflected in our countanence. When we enter in bringing peace we are welcoming, non condemning and loving.
James 3:8 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

 

Recognize & Resist:

 

Peace through occult practices and union with a cosmic force or nature spirits.

 

Giving Thanks;

 

Thank you for the peace you give me when I trust and follow you. Show me how to help others find that PEACE.

Shield of FAITH

 

 

Living by faith
Our continual trust in God, His Word, and His promises.

 

“In Addition to all of this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” Ephesians 6:16

 

The Roman army used small round shields and large rectangular ones. The large curved shield which Paul refers to in the Ephesians letter was about four feet tall and two feet wide. It was made of layers of laminated wood covered by linen and leather. A brass or bronze rim covered every edge as protection against sword attack. It was generally painted with traditional Roman symbols such as eagles wings and lighting bolts.
Shields were primarily used as individual protection, but could be overlapped to form a large wall of protection. As a walled city was being attacked by the Romans, archers along the walls would rain down flaming arrows. The Roman soldiers with overlapping shields could continue advancing toward the gates of the city despite the arrows.

 

Application: Yeshua Is The Focus Of Our Faith

 

The only protection against the flaming arrows that rained down from the sky in ancient warfare was the shield. If used correctly, it was a trustworthy piece of equipment. If dropped, it became useless and the soldier’s fate rested with himself. We trust in Yeshua alone as our shield. We cannot rely on our own abilities in this battle.
Shield of faith allows the believer to deflect the fiery darts that come our way. The shield is part of the armor that moves freely. It can shield any part of the overal armor. Faith is our confidence in things hoped for and not presently seen.
Hebrews 11:1 Faith gives substance to our hope and makes us certain of realities we do not see.

 

Recognize & Resist:

 

Trust in Self, inner wisdom, dreams, visions, gods, goddess, cosmic force, coincidences, etc.

 

Giving Thanks;

 

Thank you for helping me have FAITH in you. I choose to count on everything you have shown me about yourself — and everything you have promised me in your Word.

Helmet of SALVATION

 

 

Salvation through Yeshua today and forever
God’s promises of daily and eternal salvation in Yeshua.

 

“Take the helmet of salvation…” Ephesians 6:17

 

The Roman army helmet was usually made of bronze, although iron and leather were also used on occasion. To protect the sides of the face, “cheek–pieces”, hinged to each side, hung down and were secured with leather straps under the chin. A “shelf” on the back of the helmet protected the neck and shoulders from arrows that fell from above.
At some point in the first century a “bill” was added to the front of the helmet along with bronze coverings above the ears. Occasionally, depending on the particular Roman army unit or rank of the soldier, the helmet might have been adorned with a colored horse hair crest. Typically, these crests were ceremonial and were usually not worn into battle. A leather liner on the inside made the heavy helmet a little more bearable.

 

Application: Yeshua Is Our Righteousness

 

The helmet was essential for the survival of a soldier in battle. Paul in using the word “salvation” indicates that the helmet is a source of total deliverance. In Yeshua, we can find deliverance in every situation, spiritual, emotional, and physical. He has to be our source, our guide, our “way out”. We cannot deliver ourselves.
The helmet of Salvation refers to protection of our thoughts and mind. Once we receive salvation it is crucial for the believer to guard his/her thoughts. Protecting the mind with the helmet of salvation means guarding one’s thoughts and being cautious about what is read, thought about, studied so that one can avoid deception.
Wearing the helmet of salvation is the protection needed to guard our thoughts and mind. Prayer and Bible study are important elements in the helmet of Salvation. Through prayer we increase our communication with God and through Bible study we improve our understanding of God’s word. The key to the helmet of Salvation is the fact that the believer is not without hope!

 

Recognize & Resist:

 

Evolving spiritually by growing in consciousness staying tuned to the cosmic mind.

 

Giving Thanks;

 

Thank you for promising me SALVATION both for today’s battles and for all eternity.

SWORD

 

of HIS Spirit

 

 

The victorious Sword of the spirit: GOD’S WORD

God’s Word countering spiritual deception and accusations
The power of God’s Word to counter deception and triumph over spiritual foes.

 

“…and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:14

 

The Roman soldier carried a small dagger and a large double–edged sword used for thrusting. The sword was usually about 24 inches long, and 2 inches wide with parallel sides. This particular weapon was developed after the Romans observed the effectiveness of the short sword in the hands of the battle–hardened Spanish mercenaries.
Formerly, the Roman army used a much bigger “slashing” sword. This new shorter and more pointed “piercing” sword proved to be much more effective in close–quarter combat. In an era when almost any wound could be fatal, this short sword was the power behind the Roman army machine. The sword was always carried on the right side in a decorated wooden scabbard. The sword and scabbard were usually attached to either the belt or to a leather strap worn over the shoulder.

 

Application: Yeshua Is The Word Of God

 

When used at close range by a skilled soldier, the sword was a deadly weapon. Paul tells us that the sword represents the Word of God, the written picture of Yeshua. He is the living version of everything God wanted to say to mankind. God’s Word is a powerful weapon against our enemy when it’s used under the spirit’s power and direction.

 

Breastplate of Righteousness

 

covers our chest and protects our heart. We are worthy to stand before God because of Jesus. Often times our heart harbours feelings of resentment, unforgiveness and hate. Forgiveness is important in the Christian walk.
I Thessolonians 5:8 therefore, let us be sober and put on the breastplate (corset) of faith and love and for a helmet the hope of salvation.
Belt of Truth keeps it all together! It keeps us secure in Christ and the rest of our armor effective. Truth is sincerity of our heart and pureness of motives.
2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Psalm 91:4 His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
Sword of the Spirit is a very useful tool in daily living. Knowing the word of God is crucial for the believer. When doubt, creeps in and the challenges of life attempt one to be overwhelmed speaking the word of God is the best defense a believer has. To be able to say: “It is written that No weapon formed against me shall prosper nor any plague come near my dwelling is empowering. (Psalm 91)
I John 2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

 

Recognize & Resist:

 

The power of thoughts, words and affirmations to change reality and direct spiritual forces.

    • I want to say thank you for thinking of me. GOD BLESS YOU. But with that being said…you need to know the Truth beyond the beat of this, and especially the lyrics. Christian music parallels the churches of today, in that they are a mixture of Christianity and Paganism. Believer’s are sucked into it without the knowledge. So, accordingly…here are some strong points;
      Take a look at their ALBUM COVERS! Pictures speak a thousand words…
      Spirit Of Truth – “Soldier of The Most High ”
      The lyrics speak of Chakras. This is NOT the Word of GOD but of the New Age Movement and it is related to Kundalini. Which is nothing more than opening portals/gateways in your body for a demon to host themselves and others.
      Spirit of Truth – “Urantia”
      Architect of the Pyramids?…or how about the Akashic Records? Who’s connected to them, will this give us a better understanding? Helena Blavastsky/H.P. Blavatsky. Edgar Cayce was a medium/channeler, most don’t know that. He was obsessed with Urantia. Otherwise known as the Akashic Records…”akasha” meaning, “space”. Some believe the Great Pyramids/Sphinx is an “Altar to the Lord”…which is ironic because I just finished a 5-part series on this…really a 6 part but the last will follow the series with even more informative issues.
      http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/spiritualGrowth.aspx?id=2078
      Urantia is connects to The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is NOT the Son of GOD, and his name is Sananda-Jesus (an Ascended Master), ans is a demon-filled entity.
