Today’s Scripture Reading

smileEphesians 6:10-24

smile1 Corinthians 15:1-4

 

‘Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, ‘

Ephesians 6:14

In the last fourteen verses of the Epistle to the Ephesians the apostle Paul describes six pieces of armor (spiritual armor) that God provides Christians to ‘stand’, ‘resist’ and overcome the deluge of demonic assaults.

It’s important to take note that before Paul begins to describe what that spiritual armor is, he admonishes Christians to stand. And makes great effort to get the point across by repeating his call for Christians to stand three times.

The apostle Paul repeats himself three times emphasizing that Christians are to ‘STAND’, taking a Firm position against Satan and his demonic powers.

Read on beginning at verse ten to get the flow.

 

 

Ephesians 6:10 – ‘Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. ‘

One. Ephesians 6:11 – ‘Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.’  

 

Ephesians 6:12 – ‘For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.’

 

Two. Ephesians 6:13 –   ‘Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.’

 

Three Ephesians 6:14 – ‘Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, ‘

 

Take note that Christians are to stand we’re not instructed to sit, relax, be patient and God will take care of everything. No, No, No, No, No….

Christians are instructed by the Lord to Stand Firm, that denotes a defensive position with the expectation of attack.   

✔✔✔ Ultimately Satan is a defeated foe, the devils power over the believer has been severed because of the cross; Christ death, burial and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:55-57; Romans 8:37-39).

Even though we are already victorious because of the cross in our daily experiences on earth Christians are in a never ending war. But God has provided Christians the Power of His Might (Ephesians 6:10) to resist Satan, in the form of His Spirit the Holy Spirit that indwells every Christian and His Word, the Bible.

There’s no doubt that the life of a Christian is war! Never-ending spiritual warfare that will only  end when believers are taken off the seen by death or rapture.

In the meantime, Christians must first STAND.

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '

Romans 10:9
