Article of Armor – The Shield of Faith

-So let’s do it – full of belief, confident that we’re presentable inside and out. Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.-
(Hebrews 10:22) Message Bible

Hey Neighbor!

Once Again, It’s Oldie but a Goodie Friday and Today We are Putting on the Shield of Faith from Our Armor of God series from 2014.

Enjoy, Guys🤩

***************************************

When my kids were smaller, they loved to play video games with their Dad. They played pac-man, racing games, and spaceship games, but their favorite was what we called the ‘fight game.’

In the Summertime, they would sometimes stay up all night ‘fighting.’.

From time to time, they would beg me to come and play along…but I didn’t know what buttons to push. They had been playing so often, that they had memorized the buttons and had even learned special button combinations that gave their fighter
‘super-moves.’

They tried to teach me some of the combinations, but the only button I could remember quickly was the shield button. So when their fighter came against me, with all his/her super- moves and battle combinations…the only way I knew to hold my Ground was to firmly, press my Shield Button until I could build up enough courage to fight back.

Now, of Course We know that the battle that we face..is no game!!

This thing is for real…so God has Armored us with A Real Shield…
The Shield of Faith!!

-Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you CAN quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].-
(Ephesians 6:16)

We are in a Real Life-or-Death Battle with a real devil and his real demons that are mercilessly, trying to take Our Lives…So when the enemy comes against us, in hot pursuit, with everything he’s got…employing his demons to team up against us, throwing his fiery darts and arrows at us continuously, We Must Stand our Ground – Holding up Our Spiritual Shield of Faith!!

Donnie McClurken, says…After You’ve done All You CAN…You just Stand!!

But here is what We Can Not Do!!

We Can Not let the enemy push Us back, after We’ve made much progress and gained spiritual ground. We Can Not get ‘punked’ again and turn back and run!!

Although We are temporarily, at a stand-still…We Can Still…Stand!!

Now is Not the time to entertain thoughts of fear and unbelief!!

Now is Not the time to give-up or faint!!
There is no white flag attached to Our Amour…So surrender Is NOT an option!!

The Apostle Paul tells us,
-IN [this] freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]; stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off-
(Galatians 5:1)

Now is Not the time to accept defeat or submit to Hell’s captivity.
We are Not the property of Satan…so We Can Not retreat back into his filthy hands and back into the sin that enslaved Us and controlled Our lives.

We are the Children of God…His Property…dressed in His blessed Armor…So We Must Stand on God’s Promises…Raising Up Our Shields… Pressing forward, by Faith!!

When the devil is coming against you with everything he’s got…Will You Hold Fast to God’s Promises??

Will you Still…believe God promised that – No weapon that is formed against You shall prosper??
-(Isaiah 54:17)

Will You still believe that God said -He will never fail You nor forsake you?? -(Joshua 1:5)

Will you still believe that God said- You have the favor of The Lord and it surrounds You as a Shield??
-(Psalms 5:12)

Will you continue to believe, with confident expectation that the Battle is Not Yours, but it’s God’s??
-(2 Chronicles 20:15)

NOW Is the Time…and This is What We CAN Do!!

Now, Is the time to hold fast to your profession of faith…without wavering back and forth between hope and fear….and between trust and unbelief!!

If Faith is the substance of the things we hope for and the evidence of the things we Can Not see..and if We are hoping to see God’s Deliverance, then…

NOW Is the time to take title to It…

Believing on God’s Promises from
‘The Word’ with All of Our heart…with All of Our Soul..and with All of Our Might…That’s Your Shield!!

We Must believe that God is Coming Through with Deliverance…Sending His Angels to Accompany, Defend and Preserve Our Lives!!
-(Psalms 91:11)

So Be Encouraged in the Lord!!

Hold Fast and Firmly, to Your Shield…Gripping it with everything You’ve got…and keep Pressing Forward, By Faith!!

We Can Win this Spiritual Battle…and if You Peak to the end of the story…We Do Win!!

Article of Armor – Put on Your Peace Shoes!!

And having shod (shoes) your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.
(Ephesians 6:15)

Hey Neighbor!

It’s Oldie but a Goodie Friday, where we give life resuscitating breaths to CareBibleStudy messages posted long ago, yet they still have enough power to keep the oxygen flowing through the body of Christ!!

This post is from December 2014.

Enjoy🤩

*****************************************

So Now that we have strapped on the Belt of Truth and We’re wearing the Breast Plate of Righteousness…

Now We’re able to Stand!!

But as you well know, there is a war going on all around us and We’re not going to win this Spiritual Battle by being immobile.

We have to ‘Go’ forth – Walking in the Shoes of Peace.

From Yesterday’s Lesson, We learned that We have already acquired Peace, when we were filled with the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Now, this is no ordinary peace, but it is the Peace that Transcends All Understanding!!

Here’s the part that We do Understand…

This is an Old-heirloom Peace – An inherited Peace, passed down through many generations…It’s the Same Peace That the disciples inherited when Jesus bequeathed it to them saying:

Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid-
(John 14:27)

Jesus knew that after He had gone away, that the disciples would become cowardly and fearful when it came time for them to battle against the devil…and He knows that we too, sink back into fear, having been intimidated by the roars of Our enemy.

The Apostle Peter said:

For that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour-
(1 Peter 5:8)

And not only is he seeking to devour us, but he also has a battle plan – A well thought out evil, strategy to cause Us to Fall…so that He can sink his teeth into our hearts and rip our lives apart.

So Watch Out For his Set-Up!!

He’s laid out his traps and snares to tangle us up in offense, unforgiveness and bitterness…Causing us to Fall-Out with our Sisters and Brothers…Thus, Stealing our Peace!!

…Leaving us, caught-up in his deception, believing that Our Sisters and Brothers are the enemy…and treating them as such…when the devil was the instigator, all along.

Satan knows that He can render us immobile without our Peace…and he can hinder our walk…Stopping Us
from going forth as Jesus’ disciples…and as His hands and feet; As His witnesses to tell the world the Good News about Jesus and about the Peace that He Purchased for Us!!

Yes!! Jesus Paid it All…He is Our Peace Between Us and God!!

So…God is not Mad at Us!!

Jesus Is the Lamb that was slain before the foundation of the World!!

He Was the Ultimate, Acceptable Sacrifice to God for the remission of Our Sins!!

Jesus – Walking Salvation has Come Into the World!!

…And He Left Us…Heirs to Salvation…His Peace!!

So As We Walk out to the Battlefront, we must Be Spiritually prepared to…

Step-over offense!!

Kick unforgiveness to the curb!!

Trod-down bitterness!!

…and Stomp on that slivering, lying, devil’s head!!

We’ve gotten ‘Punked’ by the devil for far too Long…It’s time to put him under Our Peace-Shod Feet!!

..So Let’s keep it moving…’Go!!’ Walk-On in Peace… with Yo’ ‘Bad’ Shoes on!!…Sharing the Good News about Jesus Christ with your friends, your family, your neighbors, and All the World!!

Till tomorrow, When We will Put on our Shield of Faith!!

God’s Peace Be With You…

God Loves 💕You and So Do I!!

Guard Your Heart with the Breastplate of Righteousness!!

-Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life-
(Proverbs 4:23)

Hey Neighbor!

It’s Oldie but a Goodie Friday!!

Today’s blog is revived from 2014’s Whole Armor of God Series.

Last Friday, we tightened the belt of truth and around our waist…but that was just the beginning.

Today we will continue to get geared-up for battle, as we must vigilantly guard our heart!!

Enjoy!!

*******************************************

Today’s Article of Armor is the Breastplate of Righteousness.

It’s the next Article of Armor that God has issued for Our Spiritual Battle against our wicked opponent.

You Know…The one that has come to steal Our peace and joy…and to use Our hearts for his target practice and -Take Us Out!!

Ephesians 6:14 tells Us to – Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness.

So there we are standing, firm-footed, with the Belt of Truth around our waists. Yesterday we learned that We’ve been supercharged with the Power of the Holy Spirit…

He’s equipped us to Talk by His Spirit…confessing the Truth of His Word, But Now we must Put on The Breastplate of Righteousness- That’s our Heart’s Guard!!

What is Righteousness??

It’s simply…right-Standing with God!!

…And God sees us as His Righteous children… Not because We don’t smoke or drink…nor because We’ve worked so hard to behave ourselves…because none of Us ‘Saints’ can live and not be tempted to sin!!

…But It’s Only Because Of His Holy Spirit Living in our Hearts.

Remember…We received Him- The Holy Spirit, by Our Confession of Faith – We’ve Accepted Jesus Christ as our Personal Savior.

…And now that He’s come in…He’s purified and cleaned up our hearts so that He can Dwell in Us!!

And He’s credited our Spiritual accounts with His Righteousness…and now He wants to in-fill us with the Fruit of His Spirit…Thus Strengthening and Protecting our Spiritual Hearts For the Battle against sin!!

The Fruit of the Spirit is love, peace, joy, goodness, kindness, patience, meekness, faith and self-control.
(Galatians 5:22)

And as this fruit develops in Our hearts, through reading and studying ‘The Word,’ it will ripen in our hearts, and therefore allow for little – to no room for sin…Thus guarding our hearts from the influx of carnal cravings and deflecting the enemy’s fiery darts of temptation, that would otherwise pierce through our hearts and destroy our lives.

So, Now That You’re in Your God-Gear, wearing The Breastplate of Righteousness and You’re Heart is Guarded, You’re Spiritually Equipped to Say No to Sin!!

…And Now You’re Ready to Let the Springs of Life Flow as You Prepare Your Feet, Tomorrow, To Go Forth Sharing The Gospel of Peace!!
