Liar Liar Chain Mail(?) On Fire?

Chain_Mail_LinksBut when a stronger man than he attacks and defeats him, the stronger man strips off that man’s armor in which he trusted and then divides his plunder. Luke 11:19

I got to thinking about the armor that every Christian has, and of course, as I think more deeply than I ought sometimes, I started to think about what the army of darkness wears for armor …

satan_lies_truth_prevails…and this is what I came up with this:

Satan wears the belt of lies, the breastplate of evil/wickedness that covers a heart of stone, feet swift to death shed blood, a shield of unbelief,  flaming arrows from an unholy spirit, and a helmet of pride/ego/arrogance/self-importance/god complex/cursed damnation.

All that and he still can’t win.

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.    Isaiah 40:8

The Armor of God

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Dear Jesus, Lord of the Heavenly Host, protect us.  You are a shield around us and I love you.  Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
