The End Times Armor
Spiritual Warfare Armor of God
What is the end times armor of G
What is the end times armor of God?
This refers to the protection we will be needing in the last days. It is necessary now to learn what that protection is and begin to prepare for not only putting it on but for wearing it always. You see, it is not the belt or breastplate or helmet we are to be looking at, rather it is what those physical items really represent.
Much of the information available on the armor of God deals with the weapons discussed in Ephesians 6:10-18 in terms of the dress of the solider; that is the belt, breastplate, sandals, helmet, shield, and sword. A great deal of written information has been devoted to in-depth descriptions of these physical warfare items.
WE TAKE A MUCH DIFFERENT APPROACH.
We see the real armor as:
• Truth (Belt of Truth),
• Righteousness (Breastplate of righteous),
• Peace (Sandals of peace),
• Salvation (Helmet of salvation),
• Faith (Shield of faith),
• Word of God (Sword of the Spirit) and
• Prayer (left out of most descriptions because it is not a physical item like the others).
As we move into the season for the end times armor, this armor is even more vital for living a Christian lifestyle.
The first word in Ephesians 6:10 in the NKJV is “Finally”. This word means that FINALLY the discussion is ready to settle on the whole armor of God. It means that everything that went before has been preparation for being able to put on the full end times armor of God for the spiritual warfare we face.
The preparation part above is the everyday end times practical spiritual warfare we face in our life. The end times armor of God we need for our Christian lifestyle is:
- to be truthful rather than un truthful;
- to be righteous rather than unrighteous;
- to choose peace rather than conflict;
- to choose salvation rather than going to hell;
- to have faith rather than doubt;
- to take in the Word of God rather than follow the world;
- to pray rather than be busy in the world
What went before Ephesians 6:10 was instruction on:
• Our position in Christ and
• Living a Christian life style with Christian Character
In other words, Paul is saying that knowing our position in Christ and living a Christian life style is really the armor –
it is how we live out our everyday life in, especially in the season of the end times:
• The Word of God
If we lack any of these things, we are weak and handicapped and if we storm the gates of hell in our weakened state, the enemy will eat us alive. WE must have the end tomes armor.
Can you imagine how the enemy must laugh at those of us who hoot and holler, and shout and get emotional with the devil?
Especially when we, at the same time, are unrighteous ourselves because:
We stretch the truth with little white lies, do not honor our parents or we have hidden sins of pornography, deceit, jealousy, envy, covetous, greed, pride or lust, or we do not live out any of the other lifestyles given above?
With the above in mind, we will look at the following items on the next pages. Just follow the links.
