Spiritual Warfare – Put on your Armor

1 Peter 2:9

New International Version (NIV)

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Say to yourself ” Glad I made it”

The reason why you are still here is because God’s grace is upon you. When God’s Grace is absent in your life, that’s when you turn yourself over to the world.

Most of you do not realize we are in a great battle. This battle started since existence of Satan and its ends when God vanquishes the devil  from the face of the universe.

In this great battle, you are on the front lines. You are fighting a war under the authority and the power of your master Jesus Christ.

When you are in this great spiritual warfare, the opposition in this case, Evil will try to defeat you using tactics such attacking your mind, your body, your family , your friends in order to get you to fall.
But what the Devil does not know, that you are being protected the by divine Grace of God.

Who are you fight for?

You are not fighting for your president or your king

You are fighting for the king of all kings
Lord of all lords
Creator of the Heaven and Earth

Sons and daughters of God, I don’t know if you are ready to fight this battle. I don’t know if you you are upto to it. But I don’t know about you!

But If I were you,

  • Realize you are fighting for the king of all Kings
  • Lord of the Universe
  • The one who knows you by every strand of your hair
  • The only one that gives light in the darkest days
  • The one that gives you hope when you feel hopeless
  • The one who loved you, before you ever loved him
  • The one who sacrificed his only Son on the cross, just so that you and i can be saved.

If you are up to the call of duty, get ready and put on your Armor. The spiritual Armor of God.  The Divine armor of God.

The armor of God  is not just an ordinary armor, but its made by spirit of our lord

Ephesians 6 : 10

  1. If you accept the Truth, put on the belt of truth
  2. If you are ready to walk in righteousness , put on the breastplate
  3. If are have faith, pick up the shield of Faith
  4. If you seek salvation, put on the helmet
  5. If you are ready to read your words, sharpen your sword.

When you become immersed into the spirit of standing up for your creator,  no evil can come against you.

The devil will fling arrows, and swipe his sword, it might create dents and scratch your armor. But don’t let that discourage you.

This is not an easy battle.

You will go through sorrow.

You will go through Pain
You will go through hardships
You will go through storms

Ultimately, your armor will protect your heart. The heart that rests up Jesus.  On that last day, when we have claimed victory, and you will be glorified in the presence of your father.

On that victorious day, there will be celebrations, you will look to your fellow warriors, you will have joy and peace for ever.

On that victorious day, you will see Jesus face to face. He will see your scars , he will see the tears and wipe them all away.

He will tell you, Son, daughter, I’m glad you made it . Job well done. Now take rest, I have a room in my mansion for you. I built it on my own, just for you. I have been waiting for you.

God bless you all.
