“PUT ON THE ARMOR OF GOD”

.

.

.

.

.

.

“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:” Ephesians 6:13-17

.

.

.

.

.

.

In yesterday’s devotional (click here), it was discussed that world events are just now trumpeting the alarm, that God is bringing the world into that great and terrible day, the Day of the Lord.

.

So having that understanding, just what can a person do about it?

.

The Bible says… “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:13.

.

.

.

.

.

WHAT IS THE ARMOR OF GOD?

.

But how does one accomplish that? What is the Armor of God, and how does one put it on?

.

Or take up the shield of faith or the sword of the Spirit?

.

Just how can I do all this?

“GIRD UP THE LOINS OF YOUR MIND”

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg

Well, Peter exhorts all Believers to “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind,” 1st Peter 1:13.

.

Oh, so girding up the loins of my mind with truth, is what God was actually saying. And of course, the Bible is truth. So I must gird up the loins of my mind with the truth of God’s Word, the Bible.

THE BIBLE: THE KEY TO ARMORING UP

.

As a matter of fact, all the different aspects of this spiritual armor are related to the Christian soldier gaining a thorough knowledge of God’s Word, the Bible.

.

The “breastplate of righteousness”, the “belt of truth”, the “helmet of Salvation”, the “sword of the Spirit” and the “shield of faith”.

.

All of these various protective devices are strengthened by knowledge: the wisdom & knowledge that can only come through hiding God’s Word in the heart.

.

.

.

.

.

“THY WORD HAVE I HID IN MY HEART”

Psalm 119:11

.mark on forhead

Listen to the “wise man”… “Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. A wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increases strength. For by wise counsel you shalt make your war: and in multitude of counselors there is safety.” Proverbs 24:4-6

.

Yes, as this above passage states, “For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counselors there is safety.”

.

.

.

.

.

“THY TESTIMONIES ARE…MY COUNSELORS”

.

Now many erroneously believe that this verse is urging us to get advice from various people in the world. But the true “wise counselors” are actually found in the Bible.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_100326-N-4774B-066_Chaplain_Lt._Jason_Gregory_reads_bible_verses_on_the_weather_deck_aboard_the_guided-missile_cruiser_USS_Bunker_Hill_(CG_52).jpg

.

Listen… “Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.” Psalm 119:24.

.

Yes, this Bible verse reveals that there are no better wise counselors than the many precepts and stories found in the Bible. “Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.” Psalm 119:24.

Dear Lord, please, “hide not Thy commandments from me.” “Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.” “And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth;” “Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken Thou me in thy way. Stablish Thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to Thy fear.” “Concerning the works of men, by the word of Thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.” Psalm 119: 19, 43, 37, 38 & Psalm 17:4

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

 

.

.

.

LOOSING THE BANDS OF ORION

.

God spoke several times of Orion, in Scripture. His question to Job was a very mystifying question, to say the least… “Canst thou…loose the bands of Orion?” Job 38:31. Such a strange question, indeed! How could a constellation have its bands loosed, much less, even have bands? Puzzling, puzzling!

.

But now, He is revealing this bright and beautiful constellation in a way that has never before been seen. God Himself is loosing Orion’s bands, as He is just now unraveling this age-old mystery. And we are beginning to understand that this most infamous of all constellations is nothing less than a remarkable metaphor concerning Jesus.

.

THE 5 OFFICES OF ORION

.

But like most of the other Signs which this website reveals, Orion too, has much more to say as he changes his position in the sky. And this Soldier in the Heavens puts on different garb, as he presents the five awesome aspects of his various offices. From ‘Orion the Soldier’, and ‘Orion the Reaper’, and ‘Orion the Archer’, andThe Cross of Orion’, and last but certainly not least, “Orion, The Good Shepherd”. This amazing constellation presents a very complex revelation of the God’s magnificent love for a fallen planet.

.

So read on and discover, “things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 13:35
