Gods armour

We experience all evil days. We may find that someone we love is taken away from us, we can get bad health, and people can fail. But these days are not the worst.

The evil day is the day of fall, and everyone experiences such days. We fail every day because of our sinful man, but there are some days where the fall is great. Such a day can come even after a clear spiritual experience, as Peter denied his Savior right after the Last Supper.

But the case most often comes after a prolonged development away from God. If we spend less time with Jesus in Bible and prayer, or if sin is less serious, call some warning lights! Then the fall can come quickly!

To be equipped in the spiritual battle, God has given us His full armor, as stated in Ephesians 6: 13-17. At first glance it may seem odd what this armor is. But all the components of the armor are Jesus

The shield of faith protects us when the devil comes with his accusations. We should not meet him in ourselves, but we put Jesus before us! Jesus is the author and finisher of faith.

The sword of the Spirit is the word of God. It is sharper than any two-edged sword (Heb 4: 12). “In the beginning was the Word. The word was with God, and the Word was God ”(John 1: 1). Jesus IS the word, and this word is double-edged – it leads to salvation for every one who believes, but is also a stumbling block to the world.

Put on your armor every day! Then we have the power to resist Satan’s attack. We will also take on the righteousness of Jesus Christ day by day. Then Satan must fly.

We will still fall, and then there is only one rescue: to go to Jesus. When Satan accuses us, Jesus will put us on clean clothes, as it is so amazing in Case 3: 1-5. Like Peter, we will be raised to new life and new service.
