Spiritual Warfare, Part 4 – Raise Shields!

…”in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one.” (Ephesians 6:16) “Having girded (our) loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod (our) feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace”, as Ephesians 6:14,15 instructs us, does not prevent Satan’s attacks. His fiery darts are temptations to sin and come in various forms of thought – doubts, anxieties, fears, etc. If they are not immediately quenched we will be burned by them because “whatever is...

Spiritual Warfare Part 3, Walking in Peace

In Ephesians 6:15, Paul next instructs us to have our “feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace”. Footwear is meant to protect our feet (our foundation), give us stability in order to stand, and improve our mobility. One meaning of this phrase is that we are to have a readiness to share the “good news” of redemption, as Paul exhorts in 2nd Timothy 4:2: “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season.” This means when we feel ‘spiritual’ and when we don’t. Like God’s provision for Israel during the 40 years in the...

Spiritual Warfare, Part 2 – The Breastplate of Righteousness

“Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm, therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,” (Ephesians 6:13-14). The second piece of armor we must put on is the breastplate of righteousness. The breastplate of the Roman soldiers generally consisted of bronze with a leather backing, and was designed to protect the vital organ of the heart. Bronze in the Bible symbolizes judgment, and leather comes from an animal hide – the...

Spiritual Warfare, Part 1 – The Belt of Truth

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you 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 up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about with truth Ephesians 6:10-14a...

  • The Work Of Faith
    The apostle Paul wrote about “the work of faith with power”. To ignore the work of faith is to ignore the transforming power of the gospel. Saving faith produces works of faith. These works are actually the visible fruit of a healthy branch that is abiding in vibrant and loving fellowship with Jesus Christ. These […]
  • Communion – It’s All About Jesus!
    Jesus Christ came to this earth to provide forgiveness of sin by offering Himself up on the cross as payment for our iniquity. The bread and the cup remind us of His sacrifice for us as the Lamb of God. Yes, there is our personal need to search our hearts in preparation for taking communion, […]
  • Jesus, Our Treasure
    Jesus Christ is the believer’s treasure chest. It is in our Lord Jesus that we find all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. It is in our Lord Jesus Christ that we find both redemption and completeness. How foolish we are when we seek to lay up treasures upon earth when we are given in […]
  • Sovereign God
    The fact that our God is absolutely sovereign in the affairs of man is undisputable. God does what He pleases. He answers to no one. Knowing the nature of God takes all fear out of the fact that God is sovereign. He rules in the kingdom of men and appoints whoever He wills to govern. […]
