Ephesians 6 (The Armor of Truth And Understanding)

Armor of God

Since we are to be the glorious church, strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. The light of the world and sanctified (set apart as a powerful witness and instruments of righteousness in the hand’s of the living GOD). Therefore the Word of Lord teaches us to protect ourselves with the whole armor of God. Protecting :

our minds with the Salvation of Jesus Christ (v:17)
our hearts with His righteousness (v:14)
our walk in His Gospel of Holiness (v:15)
with the pure holy truth of His Word (v:14;17)
and by the power of faith (v:16)

Standing against spiritual darkness and sinful corruption in the evil day and against all the fiery darts and schemes of satan, the will of the flesh and the pride of life (Psalm 91:4/ Ephesians 6:10-20). Not only are we called to stand against, but we are also called by the Lord Jesus Christ to combat against all satanic darkness, corruption, lies and wickedness in these last day’s with His complete Gospel of truth (John 1:1-14), by the holy power of God the Holy Spirit and by the pure holy love for and of GOD our Heavenly Father with a servants heart, living to please the Lord.

Understanding is more than comprehending what is being read, taught or preached. Understanding is putting into practice what we heard by the revelation and illumination of His Word with all our heart and this is what pleases the Lord. The Apostle Peter puts it all this way under the unction of God the Holy Spirit and the Word of the Lord cannot lie:

2 Peter 1:5-10

“But also for this reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue (moral excellence), to virtue knowledge (of the Lord and His Word), to knowledge self control (walking in the Holy Spirit), to self control perseverance, to perseverance godliness (devotion/commitment to GOD), to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love (for God and our neighbors) for if these things (All of these fruits and virtues of the Lord) are yours and abound, you will be neither barren or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things are shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren (children of GOD), be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do (put into practice) these things you will never stumble;”

So therefore we are to put on the whole armor of GOD and stand firmly against everything that contradicts the Lord, His Holy Bible and our daily walk in the evil day, pulling down strongholds in the Spirit (prayer) while pulling people out of the fires of eternal Hell with the truth, of love and with the power of GOD.

*           Ephesians 6:1-9
The basis of these commands is love and obedience. Love and obey God, love and obey our parents, our Pastors and our bosses at work. How does this relate to the love for God? Love and obey our authorities that the Lord has placed above us as if serving and loving the Lord with a sincere heart for this pleases the Lord

*5:15   Ephesians 6:10-17
All born-again followers of Jesus Christ will face all opposition physically and spiritually all the days of our lives. This is the true reality of Christianity since the day of Pentecost. In order to stay strong in the Lord and be victorious and protect the Life Jesus Christ gave us, we therefore, need to arm ourselves with what the Lord has equipped us with lest we become a casualty

*17:53   Ephesians 6:18-20
Never forsake prayer. Prayer keeps us from straying away from the Lord. Prayer keeps us in close communion with God. Prayer pulls down stronghold in the spiritual realm. Prayer births ministries, prayer strengthens and emboldens ministers of the Lord with the powerful anointing of God. ½ of spiritual battles are done in prayer, the other ½ is putting into practice the Word of God and preaching His holy truth
