7 Why Do We Need To Put On The Full Armor Of God? Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph 6:13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
8 Without Strength From The Lord We Cannot Serve Him Eph 1:19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might Eph 1:20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,
9 Without Strength From The Lord We Cannot Serve Him Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, Eph 3:17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
10 Without Strength From The Lord We Cannot Serve Him Eph 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, Eph 3:21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
11 Without God’s Armor We Cannot Stand Firm and Victorious Over Satan 1Co 10:12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. 1Pe 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 1Pe 5:7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 1Pe 5:8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
12 Without God’s Armor We Cannot Stand Firm and Victorious Over Satan 1Pe 5:9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. 1Pe 5:10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you.
13 Gird Loins With The Truth Eph 6:14 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, Eph 4:14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;
14 Gird Loins With The Truth Eph 4:15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, Eph 4:16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.
15 Put On The Breastplate of Righteousness Eph 6:14 Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, Php 3:9 and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith,
16 Put On The Breastplate of Righteousness Tit 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, Tit 2:12 instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age,
17 Put On The Breastplate of Righteousness Tit 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, Tit 2:14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
18 Shod With Preparation of The Gospel of Peace Eph 6:15 and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
19 Shod With Preparation of The Gospel of Peace Rom 10:14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? Rom 10:15 How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, "HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE THE FEET OF THOSE WHO BRING GOOD NEWS OF GOOD THINGS!"
20 Take Up The Shield of Faith Eph 6:16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Heb 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Rom 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
21 Take The Helmet of Salvation Eph 6:17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 1Th 5:8 But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation.
22 Take The Helmet of Salvation 1Th 5:9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 1Th 5:10 who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.
23 Take The Sword of The Spirit Eph 6:17 And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Heb 4:1 Therefore, let us fear if, while a promise remains of entering His rest, any one of you may seem to have come short of it.
24 Take The Sword of The Spirit Heb 4:2 For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard.
25 Take The Sword of The Spirit Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
26 Pray Being Alert For All The Saints Eph 6:18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, Eph 6:19 and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,
27 Pray Being Alert For All The Saints Eph 6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Mat 26:41 "Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
28 Pray Being Alert For All The Saints Col 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; Col 4:3 praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; Col 4:4 that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak.
29 Pray Being Alert For All The Saints Col 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of your number, a bondslave of Jesus Christ, sends you his greetings, always laboring earnestly for you in his prayers, that you may stand perfect and fully assured in all the will of God.
