"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
What is the ARMOR of God?
Armour is mentioned many times in the Bible. The word "Armour" in the King James language is the same word that we in the United States spell "Armor". The dictionary says that ARMOR is: "covering to protect the body made of metal".
the Bible in the book of Ephesians it tells Believers to:
|Ephesians 6:10-18 - The Armor of God|
|6:10||Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.|
|6:11||Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.|
|6:12||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.|
|6:13||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.|
|6:14||Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;|
|6:15||And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;|
|6:16||Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.|
|6:17||And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:|
|6:18||Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;|

~Some information from Nave's Topical Bible~
Girdle of Truth - Ephesians 6:14
-to be girt with truth
We as Christian believers are all suppose to be soldiers. We are in the Lord's army. Do you know the "game plan"? Do you have all the equipment that you need?
When you are in a WAR you have an "enemy" and expect a "battle".
All of this "equipment" for the Lord's Army is also the same items worn by the Priests of the Temple of the Lord. Interesting!!! We also read in the Old Testament that the Lord tells us that He is our shield and our reward. Use the links below to do a more detailed study on the Armor of God.
