Ephesians 6:10-20, Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 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: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
In the great book of Ephesians 6:10, Paul starts by encouraging the Believer to “Be strong in the Lord and in the Power of his might” when confronted in battle against such a host of demonic forces, and to stand in the armour of God one must know where the power of the Lord really resides and how to access it, otherwise you are no match for what is set against you in the spirit world and your flesh, ie your passions, affections, desires and lusts.
- Your loins girt about with truth
John 14:6, Jesus said unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life no man comes unto the Father but by me.
John 6:48-56, I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.
This is the Truth, that the Blood Sacrifice of Christ is the only way into the Throne Room of the Father. Going to the Cross of Christ with faith in his Blood is the only way you can approach, and partaking of His Body on a daily basis through faith is the only place you will have abundant life and victory. This is not communion as in the Lord’s Supper but a daily walk of faith. This is the faith that the Holy Spirit will honor and move on your behalf to cause Victory, Life and an abundant supply of the Holy Spirit flowing in your spirit.
Hebrews 11:19, Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the Blood of Jesus, by a new and living way
Hebrews 4:16, Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
- Having on the Breastplate or Righteousness
Isaiah 59:16-19, And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke. According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Romans 4:13-16, For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
The Righteousness that come from God is only obtained through faith in the Sacrificed Body of Christ and what he did for us on the Cross, which is the only Sacrifice the Holy Spirit will honor and cause a standard to rise for you, a standard of Righteousness that protects you from the Law of Sin and Death being fulfilled in your members.
Romans 1:16-17, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
- Your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
Before there is a publishing and spreading of the Gospel there is a time of preparation and learning to publish the True Gospel. A true Soldier of under Christ’s command is properly prepared for battle who knows and understands the armour and weapons he has and has mastered them properly, inasmuch as that the Truth will go forward with True Power and Anointing converting and recompensing evil with the full Judgement of God confirming his Word.
2 Timothy 2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2 Corinthians 10:6, And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
Isaiah 52:7, How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
Isaiah 61:1-3, The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that arebound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
