As things get more intense in the world, it is wise to keep things as simple as possible. First and foremost, our concentrated focus needs to be on the Heavenly Father, Messiah Yeshua (the Son), and the Holy Spirit. It is your choice on how you do this, whether in prayerful petitions and meditation, or in studying His Word to know Him and the power of His resurrection (Phil. 3:10). I do both; but most of the time I spend with our Beloved seems to have developed into a continual fellowship with words and without. I am truly loving the times that the Lord and I don’t even say a word. We just be together.
As I get back to the simplicity of love and life with Him, the fundamentals of our faith are being highlighted. For instance, I am an atmospheric gal. I can “feel” the changes going on in the earth and the cosmos. It rarely feels good these days. The Lord has re-emphasized one of the protective measures that He has given His people – the armor of God – but this time He has added the element of His blood coating the armor of God.
“10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints” (Ephesians 6:10-18 NKJV).
This may seem too simple, but I can guarantee that it works. It has been helping me for some time now, so I thought I would share it with you.
Notice that all the pieces of the armor of God are vitally connected to Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ): salvation, righteousness, truth, gospel of peace, faith, and the Word of God. One of my favorite statements in the armor of God passage is “HAVING DONE ALL, to stand. Stand therefore,” which I can’t help connect to “ABOVE ALL, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”
So, let’s daily put on the helmet of salvation coated in the Blood, the breastplate of righteousness coated in the Blood, the girdle of Truth coated in the Blood, the shoes of the gospel of peace coated in the Blood, the shield of faith coated in the Blood, and the sword of the Spirit coated in the Blood of Christ. When we have done everything to stand, we will stand. We will stand, pray at all times, and take up the whole armor of God, so we can withstand the wiles of the devil in the evil days that we are in.
Give em heaven!!!
