ROMAN EMPIRE-THEN AND NOW
Roma was never innocent! The government was crooked from the get-go! The Holy Roman Empire, wasn’t so holy after all.
After all, they pretty much carried over the worship of the Watchers (fallen angels) in their culture by naming months of the years, days of the week, and planets after these entities. Although there many be many names, and seemingly very confusing…you will begin to see that these same entities are behind all false religions in the world!
For instance, I believe the Twelve Olympians to be fallen angels who carry over/spill over into the Roman Catholic, Aztec, Chinese, Mayan religion, and even the Djinns of the Muslim.
So how do these facts relate to the here and now? What calendar do you go by? What days of the month do you use? What about science…and the names of planets? All the same!! Even after thousands of years.
ROME BEARING GIFTS-LADY ENLIGHTENED
“Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.”
America has always SEEMED to be blessed. But, that only is a direct reflection of the people who love GOD, not our government. I know that’s harsh but give me your ear for a bit.
Lady Liberty towers over New York Bay with its flaming torch…its “Torch of Enlightenment” or “Torch of Illuminism”. As Americans we have proudly praised her symbolic gesture of freedom and hope but in reality…it meant something totally different than what we’ve imagined it to be.
She’s nothing but a slap in the face from Masonic brothers who embed their Satanic traits within our society in every avenue possible. They laugh as they mark their motive in secret meetings with rituals of dark homage to their gods.
The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France…on October 28, 1886. Made in Paris by the French sculptor Bartholdi, in collaboration with Gustave Eiffel (who was responsible for the steel framework Did you know that Oct 28-Nov 1 is the Satanist High-holy day.
But, wait….what does that have to do with Rome? Well, the Roman Catholic Church worships the “Goddess of Heaven”. They would have you believe that this is Jesus’ mother but it’s not. It’s Isis/Ishtar/Inanna/Ninanna/Astarte, etc. Ishtar was introduced to the Greeks by the Phoenicians…this is actually the bloodline of the demigods/fallen angels. She was equated to have nearly the same power as the chief god of Babylon, the sun god Utu, also known as Shamesh. In later years, the chief male deities would flip-flop in popularity.
The most famous and prominent during the times of Israel’s nationhood was “Baal.” [Baal was also called Marduk/Mardok/Merodach/Bel] Baal was identified with the planet Mars and was called the god of War.
His name meant “Lord of the air” for his superior powers and the supremacy of the air. It was claimed that he as well as Ishtar and all the other deities “flew” among and from the “stars in heaven.”
This is who the “Lady Liberty” really is…and she was designed by Freemasons.
Isis is associated with the dog, which correlates to her shining symbol known as Sothis or Sirius. More here on the alignments in Washington as it related to Sirius.
Illuminati – 1) Persons claiming to be unusually enlightened with regard to some subject. 2a) The Illuminaten – The members of a secret society of freethinkers and republicans that flourished in Germany during the late 18th century. 2b) Persons regarded as atheists, libertines, or radical republicans during the 18th century (such as the French Encyclopedists, the Freemasons, or the freethinkers): “The doctrines of the Illuminati and principles of Jacobism” (George Washington). 3) The members of a heretical sect of 16th century Spain, who claimed special religious enlightenment, “enlightened ones”. Illuminism is 1) Belief in or proclamation of a special personal enlightenment. 2) The ideas and principles of various groups of Illuminati.
In the words of Luciferian Illuminist and Freemason Manly Palmer Hall, “the torches represent the Occult arts and sciences, the doctrines and dogmas by the light of which Truth is made visible.” Occultist Edourd Schure had this to say concerning Lucifer and his flaming torch, “Lucifer, having regained his star and his diadem, will assemble his legions for new works of creation. Attracted by his flaming torch, celestial spirits will descend…and he will send these messengers from unknown spheres to earth. Then the torch of Lucifer will signal ‘From Heaven to Earth!’ – and the…Christ will answer ‘From Earth to Heaven!”
In 2015, the year was declared, “The Year of the Light”…this was a direct reference to the coming of their “light”…Lucifer.
On 8/10/16, the pope said,
When, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, “you’re out of time.”
But still, I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in; think again
Don’t be surprised, I will still rise
’Cause when, when the fire’s at my feet again
And the vultures all start circling
They’re whispering, “you’re out of time.”
But still, I rise
This is no mistake, no accident
When you think the final nail is in; think again
Don’t be surprised, I will still rise
WOW! Amazing lyrics, right? They want you to believe that it was released just in time for the Olympics in Rio….smashing, right? NOPE! Wrong.
This is straight from the devil’s mouth.
Pandora’s Box–DON’T ACCEPT GIFTS FROM THE GODS. Of course, these are not gods, but cheap imitations. The Greek demigods were the fallen angels and their descendants. But it’s this same message that we must get across.
In the box: They were things that no one had experienced before; war, disease, hatred, jealousy, malice and all the evils in the world.
It’s the small steps which push this agenda forward, that way few notice the big picture.
The New Age Movement has many sub-divisions. The “New Age” refers to the “Aquarian Age”. This is a reference to ‘enlightenment’. It’s basically a false doctrine of a religious system of a evolutionary godhood and global unity. You will hear words like; I AM, ascension, Oneness, reincarnation, global harmony, and finally the most important: One World Religion; One World Government and this adds up to a New World Order.
RESET 2016 – Together 2016 (July 16, 2016) taking place at The National Obelisk Monument opps…Mall in Washington, was to be a historic event of unity to pray for a reset for our nation. Pope Francis was set to deliver a video message to thousands of people…
He cited the differences between Christians and Catholics when it comes to the Gospel.
“We’re divided on how one is born again: Rome says water baptism; the Bible says the work of the Spirit. We’re divided on how one is justified: Rome says faith plus works, the Bible says faith. We’re divided on how one is purified of sin: Rome says purgatory, the Bible says the blood of Jesus. We’re divided on the essentials of the Gospel: Rome has other mediators, the Bible says it’s Christ alone,” he said.
What’s so scary about a liddle-biddy music festival? Well, it’s only this: These music groups which came out to support this endeavor were 99% Christian! This means they know the real deal! They know this is a movement of global proportions. Now that’s SCARY!
So, all you nay-sayers who read my article about ALL Hollywood-produced music is evil…nana booboo. But, seriously….this is wrong. This is evil. This is…a supernatural agenda to bring forth the Antichrist and the Roman Catholic Church is at the APEX.
The issue at hand is the ONE movement. Meaning: The push for oneness. We are all one? NO! This is a blasphemy on The Holy Spirit’s gift of the spirit of GOD!
Okay, the world is fed an illusion. This is NOT the same Jesus. The Roman Catholic Church is behind the One World Religion, and the Illuminati is behind a One World Government. Bring these two together and you have the culmination…a third (blasphemy against the Trinity)…the New World Order.
So, this series is not a new subject, but it may be one that many people didn’t know, or comprehend. GOD gives and creates, Satan takes and destroys. Satan makes it seem like he can do what GOD does, but it’s just an illusion. Don’t be deceived.
Now on to the real nitty-gritty details.
So, we know that the Olympics were originally held in honor of the demigods of Atlantis.
In 1936, Germany hosted the Olympics, and although he attempted to see Aryan athletes triumph, this was not a complete success.
THE WRITING ON THE WALL
Isaiah 9 (KJV)
10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.
In the stir of all the madness, sadness and chaos of 911, Obama was creating a stir in Manhattan. His official visit to the new World Trade Center, he signed a steel girder:
“We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger!”
The new WTC is designed as such: As Above, So Below!
The ancient vow begins with these words: ‘The bricks have fallen, but we will rebuild with hewn stone,’….whatever we as a nation, once was…we are no longer!
From Congress the Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle, representing America’s response to the 9/11 attack, quotes Isaiah 9:10 from the Bible; ancient Israel’s response to Assyria’s attack.
“The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”“
In the rubble of Ground Zero, a tattered Bible was photographed laying open to Genesis 11.
“And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven;”
In the book of Daniel, in chapter 5…we have the feast of Belshazzar.
מנא, מנא, תקל, ופרסין
Daniel reads the words, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN, and interprets them for the king: MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed and found wanting; and PERES, the kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. “Then Belshazzar gave the command, and Daniel was clothed in purple, a chain of gold was put around his neck, and a proclamation was made … that he should rank third in the kingdom; [and] that very night Belshazzar the Chaldean (Babylonian) king was killed, and Darius the Mede received the kingdom.”
The words Daniel reads are monetary weights: a mena, equivalent to a Jewish mina or sixty shekels, (several ancient versions have only one mena instead of two), a tekel, equivalent to a shekel, and parsin, meaning “half-pieces”. The last involves a word-play on the name of the Persians, suggesting not only that they are to inherit Belshazzar’s kingdom, but that they are two peoples, Medes and Persians.
First of all, the first books of Daniel deal with the writing on the wall, Daniel in the lion’s den, and the vision of the four world kingdoms replaced by the fifth.
The basics of these are that we are paralleling that time, and GOD has warned HIS people. Our days are numbered on this earth…so too are Satan’s. Witchcraft and Satanism runs amuck in the world. As with the days of Daniel, we have sorcerers running the government thinking they are not going to be held accountable for their deeds.
There is a GOD in heaven that reveals HIS secrets, and wisdom but the enlightenment which the world follows is a false one.
The world is broken! Divided into these kingdom’s which Daniel speaks of. The latter is the feet and toes…this is the mixing of human DNA with fallen angels, and animals and let’s not forget the transhumanism aspect too. Is this the Iron? They mingle themselves with the seed of men….we know ‘they’ are hybrids!
King Nebuchadneezar had an image of gold erected…in Babylon. I think it’s ironic that the people (heads of state, government, etc) that he assembled were ready to worship this image when they heard a sound! The sound of music. This must have been a supernatural event because it caused most to fall down and worship the image, and whosoever did not…was cast into the burning fiery furnace.
Lucifer was/is the angel of music!
This event sounds similar to when Moses came down from the mountain when he obtained the Ten Commandments and the Israelites were worshiping golden images.
Then again, I believe this will also happen when the Antichrist makes himself known.
The king commanded his army to bind the three ‘angels’? And cast them into the furnace. Is this a prophetic picture of coming events for GOD’S people?
The three manifested into four! GOD tells us that there were signs and wonders…
In Daniel 4, we see that Belteshazzar, master of magicians, had a dream. He saw a tree which reached into heaven. We are told a “WATCHER” came…WOW!
The tree is cast asunder and scattered…the stump remained. The mention of iron and brass…
Is this the Watchers who fell? The fallen angels? Is this a reference to the Tree of Good and Evil? The leaves are fair? Women who mated with fallen angels? And upon those branches the fowls of the heaven had their habitation! They came to earth….and remained.
In verse 34, 35, it says…”And at the end of days I Nebuchadneezar lifted mine eyes unto heaven….and all the inhabitants of the earth doeth his will in the army of heaven!
WOW! Read it and gain wisdom!
Discern the truth here. Not only are we told of the Watchers in Genesis, but here as well!
And CRAZY enough…I think chapter 5 deals with the mixing of their DNA with ours! It actually says, “that the spirit of the gods is in thee…”
Then, we have the WRITING ON THE WALL!
I mean how obvious can GOD make it!
Thou art weighed in the balances….where do you stand? Another thought…these “Horns” which are so eloquently spoken of as kingdoms…are they literal horns of a fallen angel? We don’t really know what they look like! Just a thought…
Wait…that’s not all….what’s next? Daniel in the lion’s den. This is a prophetic message! We, who are GOD’S people will be tested. Tried and tested in the fire! And I believe this will be the purification process…so prophetic!
So, we have an ancient KEY…a quote:
“We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger!”
So…in the first two parts, we discussed the Olympics…and Hitler. We discussed how they correspond to the worship of the demigods (fallen angels) of Atlantis.
We touched on the correlations between Biblical prophecy and the events happening in relation to Daniel and the “writing on the wall” and Daniel and the lion’s den. The book of Daniel also reveals some interesting details about the Watchers!
So are they rebuilding things in this world….or DNA?
The Torch! Considering the events taking place right now with the Olympics, the torch is not a ridiculous subject…but it’s the secrets which seem to be outrageous. We know that outrageous events are happening all around the world…things which seemingly have no explanation.
Did you know that Hitler rose to power in 1933? He did. And he was a big promoter of the torch!
The sportive, knightly battle awakens the best human characteristics. It doesn’t separate, but unites the combatants in understanding and respect. It also helps to connect the countries in the spirit of peace. That’s why the Olympic Flame should never die.
— Adolf Hitler, commenting on the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games.
He also had a vested interest in the rings…the Olympic rings made their debut in 1920 at Antwerp, Belgium. They were suppose to symbolize the first five Olympics.
Leni Riefenstahl, the Olympia filmmaker who chronicled Hitler’s rise to power, had the rings carved into a stone altar at the ancient Greek city of Delphi, spawning the myth that they were a symbol dating more than two millennia.
The Nazis knew a good propaganda symbol when they saw one. At noon on July 20, 1936, two weeks before the start of the Berlin Games, a Greek high priestess and fourteen girls wearing classical robes gathered in the ancient Stadium of Olympia, and used parabolic mirrors to focus the sun’s rays on a wand until it burst into flame. As a torch was kindled, a chant went up, “Oh fire, lit in an ancient and sacred place, begin your race,” followed by a ceremony where one of Pindar’s Pythian odes was sung to ancient instruments. The so-called Olympic flame was then carried by 3,075 relay runners from Greece, passed from magnesium torch to torch (each one bearing the logo of the German arms manufacturer Krupp), until it finally lit a colossal brazier in the Berlin stadium before the Führer’s approving gaze.
In fact, this ceremony never occurred at the ancient Olympics. The modern conception is a mishmash of two quite different pagan traditions that Berlin’s masterminds in particular, Dr. Carl Diem, a leading German scholar who became head of the organizing committee had brilliantly reworked. Olympia, like all ancient Greek and Roman sanctuaries, did have its own eternal flame, which was kept burning for Hestia, goddess of the hearth, in a building called the Prytaneion, or Magistrate’s House. It was used to light all the sacrificial fires at altars throughout the sanctuary. And some other ancient Greek cities did have a lampadedromia, or torch race, as part of their local festivals. At Athens, for example, young men wearing nothing but a diadem hung over their foreheads would race in relay teams from the port of Piraeus south of the city to the Acropolis, trying to keep a baton made of flaming reeds from the narthex plant alight until they reached the altar of Prometheus. It must have made a hypnotic sight from the Parthenon, watching the flames weaving like fireflies through the dark streets below. But no torch lighting, relay races, or other pyrotechnic shows ever made their appearance at the ancient Olympic Games.
The revived 1936 torch race perfectly fit the Nazi design for the Olympics as a showcase for the New Germany. With its aura of ancient mysticism, the rite linked Nazism to the civilized glories of classical Greece, which the Reich’s academics were arguing had been an Aryan wonderland. (They were particularly fond of the macho, warlike Spartans Hitler was even inexplicably convinced that the peasant soup of Schleswig-Holstein was a descendant of Spartan black broth, a famously austere staple fed to the men in communal messes as they underwent their brutal training.) Hitler took considerable personal interest in the ritual, and pumped funds into its promotion: The Nazi propaganda machine covered the torch relay slavishly, broadcast radio reports from every step of the route, and filled the Games with the iconography of ancient Greek athletics. Afterward, the ceremony became permanently embedded in the popular imagination in part due to Leni Riefenstahl’s documentary of the Nazi Games, Olympia , which evocatively showed a Greek runner treading the gentle beaches of the Aegean at dusk.
Ironically, considering its repellent origins, the torch race has come to symbolize international brotherhood today, and remains a centerpiece of our own pomp-filled Olympic opening ceremonies. (The most popular part of any Games, they are perennially sold out in advance.) Even more strangely, the mock-pagan ritual is still carried out in Greece. Every four years, local teenage girls gather at the temple of Hera at Olympia dressed in faux-pagan regalia they even use parabolic mirrors to focus the sun’s rays while runners transmit the flame across the globe, sometimes by airplane, boat, scuba, or camel-back, to each new Olympic stadium. Every summer, the German archaeologists now working at Olympia are peeved to distraction by the hundreds of tourists asking them every day to point out the site of this ancient torch-lighting ceremony.
THE ILLUSION OF CONTROL
Hollywood glamorizes the issue of supernatural creatures.
Teens want the feeling of having control because basically everything in their lives is out of their control. They are not a full adult, per say…where they are able to make their own decisions without conflict. They think they know best…or wait…they think they know it all but they don’t. I’m not dissing youngsters…I just know how it goes. I’ve been there, plus I had children, and now grandchildren.
So what better way for Hollywood to take control of your children than to produce programs that give youngsters the illusion of control.
Werewolves, zombies, vampires, witches…and the list goes on and on.
Most of what we saw when I was growing up (with the dinosaurs) was partially good Christian programming….such as “Leave it to Beaver”…”The Waltons” and others. But now…it’s sickening how deeply infiltrated the Hollywood scene is.
The same can be said for the so-called Church!
ITS JUST A GAME
The same can’t be said today, as it was yesterday!
Then, you have gamers. Oh, this subject has surely changed. Once massed by the young, is now a synthetic world filled with all ages. Games like Pac-Man, Pong, Space Invaders (my fav-go figure), Tetris, Astroids….and many more…we just that simple games to be played and then come back to reality.
But, boy-oh-boy has that changed.
Do we need proof?
“Goat Simulator” is a new video game that’s marketed as “fun”. However, as with most video games, there’s Illuminati symbolism throughout. Not only that, but actual ‘how-to’ rituals…witchcraft tutorials.

Then, you must acknowledge the VR games. Virtual Reality is scary. Ask a teen that and they will beg to differ…they will tell you, “it rocks”.
Rocksteady Studios co-founder states: “It’s very easy to scare the crap out of people…when you put on the headset, your brain believes you’re there.”
That’s it in a nutshell! Couldn’t have said it better myself.
In case you don’t know what VR (Virtual Reality) is:
I think the most invasive remark is:
“Virtual Reality delivers what most fans call…”presence”.
Perfect choice of words.
You might as well have said…“Possession”. It’s true, no matter what they’d rather you believe. Demons can and DO invade technology. After all, it’s created in the darkness of the underworld.
All technology is created in the underworld. More specific? The “City Under the Sea”. It’s where Satan’s Seat on earth is. Sounds crazy, I know. But, it’s true.
The City Under The Sea
It’s entrance is gained by “astral projection”. This is performed by witches and the like. It’s their “broom”, if you will.
A great is taking place. It’s bringing about the capture of many souls into Satan’s grasp. The currents can be witnessed in the world, daily.
The church has abdicated its authority and blatantly disbelieves in these things. The enemy has come in like a flood, and few are resisting.
The children play games with mermaids. Disembodied demons lurked in the shadows of the room. Under helmets with drawn swords, stonefaced demons glared at the scene with their emotionless cold eyes.
The Ascended Masters (high-level ruling spirits) watched in glee. The smiles on their lips disguised the reality of the evil that was lurking in their hearts.
Also, they have exposed themselves to many people who are inventing demonic computer games. Another promoter is the horror movie. I must warn the reader that you cannot walk away clean when you expose yourself to Satan’s demonic fantasy world. These unclean spirits attach themselves to these demonic articles. Then, they will enter into your house and then into your body.
Believe me, after exposure, you will be tormented unless you are fortunate enough to receive Jesus Christ and deliverance.
The Bible says, “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.”
People should be:
Preaching to prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ;
Not coming riches/prosperity.
People should be:
Preaching PEACE! The pearl of wisdom here is that Jesus Christ brings ultimate peace. You can not know peace, true peace without Him in your life;
Not how this world can be rid of war because Satan is the king of chaos and as long as he is in control (not for much longer), there will be chaos, and no peace. Have you noticed the increase in chaos?
People should be:
Preaching a Holy Union of Marriage;
Not homosexuality, not lesbianism, not bisexuality. Even the church is accepting this state of mind. That’s how we know…the church is corrupt.
People should be:
Preaching that WE are the church. Our temple in within us. Don’t change it or fear the reprocussions;
Not transhumanism, genetic modification. This is happening right under our noses, like it or not. It’s part of the New World Order. This is not a man-made plan..it’s celestial. Change your DNA and you change the Image of GOD within us.
People should be:
Preaching the Laws of GOD, the justice of GOD;
Not the social justice of man. This focuses on the flesh and this will only condemn the world/us. This will only bring the wrath of GOD.
People should be:
Preaching about love;
People should be;
Preaching the Word of GOD;
Not BROUHAHA. Witchcraft. This is all we see…it’s everywhere. Television, games, Iphones, all technology is based on evil concepts. Magic is of Satan, miracles are of GOD. Magick is ritualistic summoning to bring forth demons.
The world is spinning….around and round and out of control!
The air is contaminated…the ocean’s are contaminated. The animals are going extinct.
The economy’s collapsing.
Education is shot. Degrees don’t get you far anymore.
Society tells our children their not good enough get that, fit it, wear makeup, dress like this or that leaving them bewildered.
Corporations tells us to buy-buy-buy, but everything is worthless.
Police are corrupt.
The government builds twice as many prisons as schools.
It’s easier to find a Big Mac than an apple. And when you do find it, it’s been genetically processed and modified.
Race is an issue.
So is religion.
Compassion-not so many human beings, but a whole lot of human doings.
Good deeds are only done when there’s a profit margin.
The ANSWER? Jesus Christ is The Only Path to GOD! GOD is LOVE
Armor of GOD
It’s important that we do this show today on this subject. I am going to place this on the blog too. It’s that important…
“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” Eph 6:12
How fashionable are you? Most people put many things onto their body, but Armor is not one of them. They use jewelry, makeup, fancy clothes and shoes and yet they don’t even realize where most of those things originate…they originate from the fallen angels.
It seems natural, placing items on the natural body, with natural purposes but what about the supernatural. Are you naked? What do you wear?
Did you know from birth we are all assigned a demon? And if your family has been into the occult then most likely you have more than one demon, probably several. And the bulk of your problems are spiritual, and their is a large number of demons planting ideas and mindsets bringing people into bondage.
All the devil need do is sow a seed, and then he waits and lets it grow until it spreads…like a fungus. And if your not protected it will affect every aspect in your life. It will smother out any connection you have with GOD, if you allow it.
How can we protect ourselves? We use Armor! GOD provides us with that Armor. It’s called the “Armor of GOD”.
We’re at war, people!
The Bible depicts countless battles. From Genesis to Revelation, its pages reveal there are both physical and spiritual wars raging.
It is estimated that more than 14,500 wars have been fought from 3600 B.C. to present day—and that number keeps rising. In fact, during the same time period, there have been 5,300 plus years of war … and only 292 years of peace.
The battleground for this intense spiritual struggle is not some piece of earthly real estate; it is the human heart and the immortal soul.
I was disappointed to find that Saul’s armor did not fit David and that Goliath’s armor was useless against David’s stone. I also discovered that a stray arrow found a crack in Ahab’s armor, killing the wicked king. “So much for the value of armor!” I thought. But then I realized that we are not called to wear the faulty body armor of Saul, Ahab, or Goliath. Rather, we must put on the unfailing armor of God!
Why don’t more people use it our Armor. Some don’t even know about it, while others choose not to. But why would they?
The flesh likes being comfortable. We live to get off work relax on the recliner and watch some tube. We love soft bed, casual clothes, and everything easy. That’s why technology is so perfectly utilized. We’re lazy. And we pay the price for this laziness.
Armor is rigid, uncomfortable and hard to get use to.
The Roman helmet, like helmets today, protected the head from the attacks of the enemy.
Helmets are hot and sweaty. But, there’s a difference between wearing a helmet and simply owning one. Helmets are a form of security. Most of us have used a helmet of one kind or another. In sports, on a bicycle or motorcycle, in the factory or on a construction site, or in the military. Failure to have the proper helmet can prove fatal.
The same is true for the supernatural. The brain is a fragile organ. Satan knows exactly how to attack it. The brain must be encased in the gospel (The Word of GOD) but it’s so much easier to daydream than to think.
Belt of Truth
In Bible times, the girdle about the waist held together the soldier’s garments, which might otherwise hamper his movements while marching or engaging in combat. The spiritual significance is that God does not simply want us to point at the truth; He wants us to wear it and have it wrapped about us. Not only does the belt hold everything in place, but it also serves to carry the sheath that holds the sword of the Spirit for ready access. Some people have the sword of God’s Word, but without the belt of truth they come to reckless conclusions.
Breastplate of Righteousness
The breastplate was an important article of defense that protected the front torso and all of the vital organs from a mortal wound. It was often composed of a solid piece of metal, but it could also contain numerous small pieces that were sewn to cloth or leather that overlapped much like the scales of a fish. These scales could number as many as 700 to 1,000 per “coat.” When the sun shone directly on the armor, it could become very hot. So to avoid being burnt, or even pinched, by the moving metal plates, the soldiers always wore a sturdy robe under the armor.
A breastplate makes you immobile and hard to move, very confining. But once we alter it to fit our body, mind and soul it becomes a permanent feature.
Shield of Faith
The warrior’s shield was his first line of defense. Usually made of wood or bronze, it was often big enough to protect the whole body when the soldier crouched down under a hail of arrows.
The enemy is constantly firing volley after volley of those flaming arrows of carnal desire. The purpose for this shield of faith was to deflect the fiery darts of the enemy and prevent them from ever making contact. Multitudes of Christians fall on the battlefield and fail to overcome evil because they wait until they are immersed in the fires of temptation before making any effort to resist. At that point, it is often too late. As soon as you recognize a fiery dart sailing toward you, there is no time to lose. Hold up that shield of faith and do everything in your power to keep as much distance as possible between you and the temptation. If we yield without a fight, we are in reality inviting temptation.
The shield was not held loosely in the soldier’s hand, but was firmly strapped to his forearm so he could resist the mighty blows of an enemy’s sword without fear of dropping it. Likewise, Christians cannot afford to have a flimsy faith while in the heat of spiritual battle.
The shields of old were also often of a distinctive nature, sometimes marked with the insignia or name of the king to help soldiers avoid fighting their own comrades in the confusion of battle. In the same way, when the devil sends his flaming arrows of temptation, we are to hold up the shield bearing the name of our King of kings, Jesus. Through faith in His name, we can resist any enticement.
Shoes of Peace
Walking barefoot hurts! It’s uncomfortable, but spiritually people do it everyday. In short, shoes allow us to step freely and without fear while we turn our full attention to the battle at hand. Imagine a fully armed soldier. He has his sword, his shield, his helmet, his breastplate and his belt…but his feet are completely bare.
The sandals of the Roman soldier often were fitted with nails, or armed with spikes, to make the hold firm in the ground. God’s good news and our mission—our marching orders—to preach it serve as our firm foundation.
Just as shoes allow us to walk on otherwise painful terrain without fear, then the preparation of the gospel of peace allows us to sustain painful trials and tribulations of life without fear, knowing that what awaits is greater than anything we could possibly suffer in this world.
When we truly allow ourselves to take comfort in the promises of GOD, there is nothing from outside ourselves that can trouble our hearts or give us reason to be afraid.
Sword of the Spirit
The sword was the most common weapon in battle. Indeed, the word “sword” appears 449 times in Scripture. The other armaments in God’s arsenal are defensive in nature, but the sword is primarily an offensive weapon. In fact, the sword of God’s Word is what Jesus used against the devil.
It is also called a two-edged sword because it is to be used both against the enemy and for personal use.
Ancient soldiers also used their swords for cooking, splitting kindling, and for cutting the ropes that bound their captives to set them free. Likewise, the Word of God is a practical tool for every area of life, as well as in fighting the devil. In Bible times, there was no stainless steel. A sword unused became rusty, dull, and pitted. Swords were kept clean by frequent use or by honing them against a stone (the Rock of Ages) or another soldier’s sword. “Iron sharpeneth iron” (Proverbs 27:17). Likewise, when we study the Bible with others, our skill in the Word is sharpened. A soldier traveling in enemy territory never left his sword out of reach.
Lastly…Invisible Force Field
I like to call it the Invisible Force Field. Prayer. It protects you more than you realize. It’s an invisible shield which allows you to protect the Armor from being hit!
If you don’t have the holy ghost, you are going to fall for one of the many deceptions to come. Satan took a third of God’s own angels with him, what chance would we have without God? All of these people around us are being subjected to enchantments daily. This is flat out witchcraft, it’s in their music. Listen to a Miley Cyrus song and see if it doesn’t stick in your head all day long. That’s what it is designed to do, just like in Noah’s day where “evil was on the minds of men constantly”. Music was created so that the angels could pray without ceasing, when Satan fell he perverted it. It was supposed to be a gift of God, it still can be, because it goes both ways. Play gospel in the background throughout the day. And just like with evil in Noah’s day, God will be on your mind constantly on a subconscious level. Because this is where Satan attacks us, he operates on that level when we don’t.
The armor is not a fashion statement its an encasement , with regular use it will not be foreign and eventually it will fit properly, and the sooner you become a true soldier. The easier it will be to fend off deep wounds to the body, and even your soul.
