anonymous THE ARMOR OF GOD! THE SPIRITUAL BATTLE! January 27, 2009 10:05 AM

THE ARMOR OF GOD! EPHESIANS 6:10-20


  EPHESIANS 6:10-20
10.] Finally let the mighty strength of the Lord make you strong. 11.] Put on all the armor that God gives so that you can defend yourself against the devil's tricks. 12,] We are not fighting against humans. We are fighting against powers and authorities and against rulers of darkness and powers of the spiritual world. 13.] So put on all the armor that God gives. Then when that evil day comes you will be able to defend yourself.  And when the battle is over you will still be standing firm.

EPHESIANS 6:14
14.] BE READY! Let the truth be like a belt around your waist, and let God's justice protect you like armor. [the breastplate of righteousness]. 15.] Your desire to tell the good news should be like shoes on your feet. 16.] Let your faith be like a shield, and you will be able to stop all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17.] Let God's saving power be like a helmet,[the helmet of Salvation] and for a sword use God's message that comes from the Spirit. [the sword is the word of God.]
18.] Never stop praying, especially for others. Always pray by the power of the Spirit. Stay alert and keep praying for God's people. 19.] Pray that I will be given the message to speak, and that I will fearlessly explain the mystery of the good news. 20.] I was sent to do this work and that is the reason I am in jail. So pray that I will be brave and will speak as I should.

A MARRIED COUPLES BIBLE STUDY!
A woman in my village invited me to a bible study, so last night I decided I would go. There were five married couples there, so~as you can imagine I felt somewhat out of place. I was led upstairs to a room in their beautiful house~kind of a study room~where we sat in a semi circle in front of a television.
Everyone was very nice to me, even helping me carry my tea and bible up the stairs, because stairs are very difficult and I needed the use of my cane. once there everyone introduced themselves and a DVD was put in. I truly felt as if I were intruding, here were five amazing Christian couples who had been Christians for years, and had a deep and abiding faith in the Lord.  They all were in one accord and there was harmony. I on the other hand was a single person.  I thought to myself, "What am I doing here, Why am I here." But the bible study was on faith, and everyone needs to hear that. It was in fact a very good bible study about faith replacing fear. Not only was I reassured, but realized that I should spend more time thanking the Lord. I still do not know why I should be allowed into a bible study where there were only married couples; however, I do know with all my heart that I would not be at that bible study if the Lord had not opened the door, and so I have to be grateful that the door was opened to me. I have to tell you that after seeing great effect that these married couples had when gathering together, that I am most definitely in favor of married couples gathering for bible studies and prayer meetings!

YOU CAN NOT HAVE FAITH AND FEAR AT THE SAME TIME!
1.] Fear takes over and grows with time, the longer you hold on to fear, the more of a reality fear becomes!
2.] Faith can replace fear!
3.] Faith will make your spiritual life strong!
4.] You can always make requests to Jesus!
5,] You should make your request with faith!
6.] After making a request you should say thank-you to Jesus!

Hi!
Well, I just returned from the weekly bible study that I went to. Tonight, not only did we watch the DVD, but we also discussed some of the points brought up. I felt very much that this was a beneficial meeting.
Again the minister brought up faith verses fear.

2nd Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but power,  and love, and of a sound mind.
Some points made by the preacher:
1.] Fear is faith reversed.
2.] Faith comes by hearing the word of God.
3.] Fear is contaminated faith.
4.] Fear and unbelief go together, hand in hand.
Genesis 3:1-10
10.] And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
[Fear began because we listened to the serpent instead of to God.]
Philippians 4:19
19.] But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by
Christ Jesus.
Some more points made by the preacher:
1.] Everyone must deal with an area of unbelief.
2.] The word should determine your next move in life, not fear.
3.] Spend time meditating on the word.
Matthew 7:7-11
7.] Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you;
8.] For everyone that asketh receiveth: and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9.] Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10.] Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11.] If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father, which is in heaven give good things  to them that askHim?
Philippians 4:6
"Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known unto God."
More points made by the preacher:
1.] Be consistent in your faith and do not give into fear.
2.] Faith comes by the word, and believing the word, and putting it into action replaces fear.
