Hello, God has given me something in 1 Chronicles 7:4 which says,
“All these were descendants of Asher—heads of families, choice men, brave warriors and outstanding leaders. The number of men ready for battle, as listed in their genealogy, was 26,000.”
Ready: A couple posts ago I talked about being ready. Now I’m going to talk about the armor of God. The Israelites did not have the armor of God. They did have God to direct them. We do have the armor. God gave us armor to keep us in Him. Ephesians 6:10-21 talks about the armor of God.
Armor: Paul says that the armor of God is: 1 The belt of truth. 2 The breastplate. 3 The feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 4 The shield of faith to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 5 The helmet of salvation. 6 The sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.
Belt of truth, breastplate, and shoes: The belt of truth. The belt of truth clearly goes around your waist. It helps hold your sword. The breastplate of righteousness defends you from the flaming arrows. Without the breastplate we would be vulnerable to the devil, we would get shot in the heart. The shoes keep us from stepping on sharp objects. They help us to stand firm in the gospel, and keep us ready.
The shield the helmet and the sword, The helmet. The helmet protects the head from any of satins attacks. It protects our mind. We would die from a blow to the head without it. The sword: The sword helps us fight off the enemy. We can destroy the enemy with the Bible. The shield: The shield defends us from all the flaming arrows. We can defend ourselves from the evil one with it.
Peace and love
