4th piece of ARMOR

 

2 Corinthians 10:4

King James Version

4 (For the weapons of our warfare 

are not carnal, 

but mighty 

through God 

to the pulling down 

of strong holds;)


Trained by the Holy Spirit to understand Scripture, I discovered something striking about putting on the whole armor of God.

Ephesians 6:13-18

King James Version

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.

14 Stand therefore, 

having your loins girt about 

with truth

and having on the breastplate 

of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod 

with the preparation 

of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation

and the sword of the Spirit

which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer 

and supplication in the Spirit, 

and watching thereunto 

with all perseverance and supplication 

for all saints;


Notice anything, in particular?

Spirit led me to it.

Notice the very telling KEY words:

"Above all"


Ephesians 6:16

King James Version

16 Above all, 

taking the shield of faith, 

wherewith ye shall be able to quench 

all the fiery darts of the wicked.


The 4th piece of armor.

FAITH.


Other key words that showed up in just that one verse:

"wherewith ye shall be able to quench all"


There's that "all" again.

That means, FAITH is above all the other pieces of armor, even as it is part of the whole.

And that, THROUGH faith, we would be able to extinguish ALL the "fiery darts of the wicked".

Pretty significant.

But, what is faith?

That's for the next post.
