What is the Armor of God to you?

The Armor of God
larry2
(part 1 of 2)

All of the pieces of the armor that God provides us with are associated with the word.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:12 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.
Ephesians 6:13 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.
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.

1. Loins girt about with truth of the word. Psalms 119:114. "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word." John 17:17. "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."

2. Breastplate of righteousness. Psalms 23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. How does God do this? Through His word. Philippians 2:13 tells us, "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure," and again this will be through His word.

Ephesians 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.

Your feet being shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace is symbolic of our walk, and the gospel proclaims good tidings of those different things God is doing. How do you prepare? Through the word; you cannot run to tell the message without being prepared with the word. 1 Peter 3:15 says it like this: "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."

The Armor of God
larry2
(part 2 of 2)

Ephesians 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Above all, taking the shield of faith. Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? Well I would say to this that if I think I have no faith, what happened to the faith God has dealt to every man? Is it merely weakened for a lack of exercising it? Romans 14:1. Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. Dear hearts, Christ leads us into valleys as well as the mountaintops so that we may be tested. 1 Peter 1:7. That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: Remember that we are God's workmanship; a jewel being prepared, and God may be bragging on you just as He did in Job 1:8, And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Do you think since you are saved by the blood of Christ and not by works of righteousness which you have done, that you are any less perfect than Job was? That was just the beginning of Job's testing and God perfected him as He is doing in you.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Take the helmet of salvation. Only through the word can you know the assurance of your salvation. It is there for all, but hard for many to ever realize; that takes that faith to believe God instead of ourselves accusing us. Even Job defended himself against his accusers, and God has laid aside every sin we have in the death of His Son. Romans 4:8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. Philippians 3:9, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.

Ephesians 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. Oh the blessings we receive when we love our brethren as ourselves, and many times we can see our brother struggling and easily pray for them, but then forget to have that same integrity toward our own spiritual walk. Our faith weakens and we find ourselves in the far land feeding swine, and in want. Now we remain the son, and our Father never leaves or forsakes us, but we soon find ourselves in want. What to do about it? Run to our Father Who will run to meet us, put our ring back on our finger, the robe of righteousness, and slaughter the fatted calf to honor us. Faith? Hebrews 12:2. "Look unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." We cannot do it, but God can. Philippians 1:6 "Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."

It is the annointing or the presence of the kingdom that you develop by entering into him. God is light and in him is no darkness.  This energy grows and as one grows they then can learn to project him all around you . Its the ball of light where we meet with him as children of light.  So then you have the above scriptures,  but if that was your armour then even a unbeliever can have it. Its based on your relationship with him and in this he becomes what we lack and his presence fills our holes because there are many.

The scriptures give us keys to areas on where to project him around us . So we must enter him and then project him towards these areas. He now becomes the armour and having done all stand. Stand in the annointing that you have . Because in standing he grows around us, the armour of light.

I certainly have to basically agree with you in the fact that words themselves does nothing, but as believers in Christ we also have the faith to go with the power, and idea behind the words given us.


The scriptures give us keys to areas on where to project him around us .

True again, but in Php 2:13 we read that it is God working in us both to will, and to do of His good pleasure. It starts with the measure of faith He gives us. He even goes into telling us what to experience in our walk with Him as we grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus. These guidelines actually give us the principles to become full overcomers.

I think also we are on to the same thing. What is faith, is it not tangable, a substance......what is that. its power, its energy. Faith is who he is to us , based on our preception of him , that has blessed us in the flesh or has showen us his majesty in the spirit realm. But the word builds faith,  but a encounter seals it for lifetime. Your faith will never sway when he reveals himself to you, never

Hi Larry after reading your post to me ....what makes the annointing within become the annointing outside,  so it is a armour is on our flesh....its when you sit with the kingdom within you and let it build energy so it becomes a aura around you. i can explain it like this .....when you get so anoyed and say enough is enough and set your mind to change.....thats close to it......you sit in your inner man that is joined with Christ Jesus and let it build up. Center yourself into him then allow him to extend himself through thoughout you. once you done that then you can focus him by extending your mind spirit into outside of you.

Then once you have done that you can now open heaven to earth because you have started to  understand spiritual warfare

I sure like what I'm hearing here.

You said: “Your faith will never sway when he reveals himself to you, never.”

You asked: “What makes the anointing within become the anointing outside, so it is a armour is on our flesh,”
and this was most intriguing to me.

Suffering with Christ has much to do with it in my opinion. Jesus learned obedience by the things which He suffered, Paul learned to bear a thorn in the flesh to keep him humble, and according to Rom 8:17 we have the privilege of suffering to become joint-heirs, and become glorified together with Jesus.

Paul put it this way in “Php 3:8  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, (This is going far past just getting saved)
Php 3:9  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

What we have in the exhibition of God’s victory delivering us begins with that measure of faith, is matured as we see in Isa 28:9.  Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
Isa 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

When this comes to pass in our lives, fear is overcome, strength in weakness shown in us, and a servant to all is beheld even by the world. Without a word, our lives have been a testimony. Could we agree that we’re being conformed into the very image of Jesus through His word? Jesus said this following when tested; “It is written.”

Blessings in Christ Jesus.

What is it to me...

It is the putting on of God's promises and wisdom,
it is the wearing of His protection,
it is the strengthening reminder that He will never leave His children and that we can face and do all things through Christ who *is* our strength,
It is hope and rest, when I am weary
It is life and breath, when the world sucks it from me
It is the steely reminder to fix my eyes like flint upon God my Father
and it means I'm ready to "make a defense" for the hope within me.
Its weight helps me do so with assured, steadfast confidence, but it also reminds me of the weight of the cross, and humbles me to be gentle and respectful in how I answer those who are seeking to understand why I stand covered in the full armor of God.

Ephesians 6:10 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

Hi Larry ...yes suffering is the key to us saying yes. When we are spent and broken by life in general , but as Christians we have a advantage ... We have life behind the door of torment. The soul struggles against the light and even those who are saved cry tears to be released by unfair bondage. The lord hears and he replies in time , and that is not our time. His majesty sometimes is revealed to the heavens , to the angelic realm ..as we crumble under the weight of life when there is no reply,  and we still say yes Lord you are still good in my life. This is incredible knowen that we are surrounded by a clowd of witnesses who look on and marvel.  Is there a book of larry besides the book of job ?

So we sometime are not released in the flesh or by every day stuff that happenes to the good and bad. But we can command his presence in it. A amour that we can walk in where others say just curse God and die.....but we love him and the world looks on and dosent understand , but how can they because they are lost. Praise the Lord always for he is good  and there is no other. Just look into the heavens and he is above that what he has created. My gosh we serve a amazing God. We cant comprehend how great he is.
