Good morning sisters, how was your night? We bless God for the gift and breathe of life. We are alive today because God still has a purpose for us to fulfil on this planet earth! Find it!
Well, I received this week’s topic while studying and meditating on last week’s topic led by our lovely sister Nevo. Here it is:
Topic: The armour of God
You know we all have heard and read about the armour of God in the bible but today I’ll be taking it from a different perspective.
I recently stumbled on a video on YouTube titled ‘ How satan stops our prayers – combat in the heavenly realm’ and my goodness there were some shocking revelations there.
This topic, the armour of God is a big deal to every believer that wants to be victorious!
It was revealed that when the bible talks about the armour of God, that it is actually the armour GOD uses to protect us in the spirit realm. It is God’s armour, not ours!!!
What is an armour?
-the metal coverings formerly worn to protect the body in battle.
-the tough metal layer covering a military vehicle or ship to defend it from attack.
In other words, an armour is a covering that protects and defends our body from attack while in a battle. How many know that we are constantly in a battle, we are in a warfare. The bible says “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 6:12 KJV
If only God will open our spiritual eyes, then we’ll begin to understand better. There is a battle to fight and a war to be WON!
Our walk with God will put us in the frontline of spiritual battle.
It was further revealed in the video that we all have ministering angels assigned to every believer. When people pray, the answer comes in the hand of the Angel. If the one who prays knows the spiritual armour, and is clothe with the spiritual armour; then the answer comes by an angel who is also clothe in the full armour. But If the one who prays doesn’t care about the spiritual armour, then the Angel comes without the armour. Whatever spiritual weapon you ignore here on earth, your Angel doesn’t have it as he serves you.
In other words, our armour is not protecting our physical bodies, it’s protecting our spiritual exploits. When the Angel is coming, the evil spirits focus and look at him and attack the areas which are not covered.
NB: watch the video for more shocking revelations!
When I watched this, I was like wow, so this armour thingy is really very important. Hence, it is very crucial to know these armours and put it on always.
What did the bible say these armours of God are? If we can remember, it’s in Eph 6
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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. 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. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:”
Ephesians 6:11-17 KJV
-Belt of TRUTH
-Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS
-Shoes of the GOSPEL OF PEACE
-Shield of FAITH
-Helmet of SALVATION
-Sword of the spirit (The word of God)
-Praying always in the spirit and prayer of intercession.
Now this is a whole lot to study today. I’m thinking if we can each take one armour and treat it as a topic just to get a better understanding, or as we wait on the Lord today Let us pray and ask God for more revelations on each of the armours and then we can share it on the group forum.
The aim of today’s message is to remind us of how important the armour of God is and that we should endeavour to put them on. For this is how we have the ultimate protection against the fiery darts of the enemy.
We are praying from the word of God from Ephesians chapter 6:10-18. Let us ask God to empower us to wrestle victoriously against every satanic and demonic forces that wage war against our spirit, body and soul.
Please pray these prayers in tongues for 1 hour or as led.
