Without the Word of God in your heart, it is like going into a battle zone unarmed—everyone has armor and a gun except you. It’s all about the Word:
- Put on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10).
- The Truth girds you.
- The Word (Bible) is Truth (John 17:17).
- Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
- Take up the shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16).
It’s all about the Word of God. You have to know what the bible says in order to stand against the enemy. Satan told Jesus to throw Himself down and the angels would bear him up. Satan took Psalm 91 out of context. He was telling Jesus to display His power.
We are vulnerable when we do not know God’s Word. False doctrines create crazy theologies, twisting the scripture and taking it out of context.
Don’t take my word for it, but study God’s Word for yourself. Experience His truth and gain a revelation of Who He is through the pages of the Bible. The Bible will make plain to you what it means to follow Christ.
The Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-17 GWT)
Finally, build up your strength in union with the Lord and by means of his mighty power. Put on all the armor that God gives you, so that you will be able to stand up against the Devil’s evil tricks. For we are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age. So put on God’s armor now! Then when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist the enemy’s attacks; and after fighting to the end, you will still hold your ground. So stand ready, with truth as a belt tight around your waist, with righteousness as your breastplate, and as your shoes the readiness to announce the Good News of peace. At all times carry faith as a shield; for with it you will be able to put out all the burning arrows shot by the Evil One. And accept salvation as a helmet, and the word of God as the sword which the Spirit gives you.
