The ARMOR Of GOD & Kingdom Of GOD

Lord one more time spoke about “The ARMOR Of GOD”

Let us read Ephesians 6:10-18

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 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.

The Purpose of an ARMOR in a battle

1.       Helmet  - To protect your Eyes, Nose and most importantly the brain

2.       Breast Plate – To Protect your Heart and other vital organs

3.       Belt – To protect the re-productive part of your body

4.       Shield – To protect the entire body

5.       Shod – To protect your feet while treading wild terrain

6.       Shield – To offend the enemies

7.       Strong Chants – To keep up the drive and to encourage the fellow soldiers and to discourage the enemies.
Now we the holy nation of Christ is in a spiritual warfare every day  (Ephesians 6: 10 – 12)

·         Against the devil’s schemes

·         Against the rulers, authorities and the powers of the dark world

·         Against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms

So IT IS important for us to maintain the Spiritual Righteousness, Truth, Faith, Urge to spread the good news, Devote to Word of GOD and Praying without ceasing for you and others.

Now, with all the worldliness even if you had failed with your righteousness, faith, truth and other aspects of the ARMOR of GOD which is somewhat in your control, the Spirit of the Armor will NOT fail.

Spirit, THE WORD OF GOD is living and from GOD.  It is not from you. It created you. It can never fail you.

In all the backsliding if you remember to Read the bible, Quote the verses at time of trouble and Claim HIS verses with a prayer you will miraculous deliverance.  And as you continually do that,  your Armor Of GOD will get automatically restored.

As the rightful Prince and Princess of the Great King of Kings, we cant be sitting in the tight corner of a palace and hiding in a underground tunnel. We should stand in the battle side by side with the King against the enemy.

If you are to inherit the Kingdom Of GOD, then “ARMOR OF GOD” is a must.
For as said in Mathew 11:12
From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force
