The Bible Talks About Armor

Joyce Meyer (6)

The bible talks about armor. It’s in Ephesians 6.  I don’t even know that we’ll get to those scriptures tonight but there’s armor that we have that if we wear it, it will protect us. You might call that defensive weapons. This actually was the armor that they were talking about in the bible.  This is the real stuff; just exactly what the roman soldiers wore. You can see it’s pretty mean looking stuff but it doesn’t do us any good just to have it on the stand here, sitting in our house somewhere; you’ve got to wear it. The bible says put it on. Put on the full armor of God. Now,

We’re looking at metal, swords, leather, shields and helmets, but the armor that God’s talking about for us is a spiritual thing. It’s not something that you see. It’s not something that I see, but the devil sees it and God sees it. And the devil sees if it’s not there.  Believe me, if he’s looking for somebody to attack, he’s going to pick the people who don’t have their armor on and don’t know how to use their offensive weapons against him. He’s going to look for lazy, passive people who just do nothing but sit around and whine and murmur about their problems all the time. We are in a war — a spiritual war. Second Corinthians chapter 10, verses 4 and 5.

You may know a lot about this and you may know nothing about it.  I was in church for a lot of years before I even knew that the devil was real. I think I just thought he was a Halloween character; nobody ever talked to me about him. I knew God was powerful but nobody ever told me that I was. I just thought i had to put up with whatever came around. I didn’t know I could resist the devil and rebuke the devil and walk in any kind of authority. Second Corinthians 10:4: for the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds. If they’re not physical weapons of flesh and blood, then they must be spiritual weapons. Keep in mind you don’t see spiritual things with your natural eye because they function in the spirit. (vs. 5) [inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ.

Joyce Meyer Everything is fear motivated, and I realized none of these people will be with me on judgment day.
