Put on the Whole Armor

July 19, 2016

Image from 365promises

Put on the whole armor of God
Stand strong
Stand firm
Against all the strategies
And the deceits of the devil –
Eph 6:11
Tighten the belt of truth around your loins –
Eph 6:14
Let your loins be girded{supported with Truth}
And keep your lamps burning –Lk 12:35
The percepts{statues} of the Lord
Give discernment{understanding} –Ps 119:130
To expose every deceitful way –Ps 119:104

Without the belt of truth firmly tightened
You can not carry the sword of the Spirit
Which is the word of God! –
Eph 6:17
Without the sword there is NO protection
Against the terrors of the night –
Song 3:8

God’s word is a lamp unto your feet –Ps 119:105
Revealing the path of life! –Pro 10:17

From Keep Your Lamps Burning

A lamp in ancient times was a vessel with oil and a wick carried in the hand to light the path to walk on.

  • The picture here is that as we walk, our hand (which speaks of our works) needs to hold up (apply/do) the lamp (which is the Word) ==> then our lamps will be lit and burning and our eyes will see the “straight” path {path leading to life} before us!

Ephesians 6:10-17 AMPC … 10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides]. 11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere. 13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place]. 14 Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of {righteousness}integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God, 15 And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace. 16 Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one]. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.

Psalm 91:4 NLT … He will shield you with His wings. He will shelter you with His feathers. His faithful promises are your armor and protection{your protective wall}. 

Step by Step

July 16, 2016


Step by step walk carefully with the LORD
=> persist, don’t give up
And not only you but those you are helping along
Will make it to the “other side” !!!!!Pro 4:26;1Tim 4:16

Proverbs 20:24 NIV … A man’s steps are directed by the LORD. How then can anyone understand his own way?

Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV … Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.


Step by step walk carefully with the LORD-Don’t give up=>Both U & those U help will make it to the other side!

Blind Leading Blind?

July 15, 2016

Luke 6:37-40 NASB … “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

39 And He[Jesus] also spoke a parable to them: “A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40 A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.”

Isn’t this a warning to be careful who you listen to or follow?
There is a great danger in listening to false teachers or people who have no spiritual discernment => sight.

If unsound instruction is listened to or undetected{unjudged}, how can we expect the listener to become anything but unsound in faith?

The blind one who NEVER judges or who judges with something other than God’s word, has no discernment and so can not lead.

John 7:24 AMPC … Be honest in your judgment and do not decide at a glance (superficially and by appearances); but judge fairly and righteously.

Hebrews 5:11-14 NASB … Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the WORD of righteousness, for he is an infant. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern{judge} good and evil.

Titus 1:9-10 AMPC … He must hold fast to the sure and trustworthy WORD of God as he was taught it, so that he may be able both to give stimulating instruction and encouragement in sound (wholesome) doctrine{teaching, instruction} and to refute and convict those who contradict and oppose it [showing the wayward their error].
10 For there are many disorderly and unruly men who are idle (vain, empty) and misleading talkers and self-deceivers and deceivers of others. [This is true] especially of those of the circumcision party [who have come over from Judaism].


Be very careful who U listen to & follow-The blind who NEVER judge &have no discernment-Can only lead into a PIT …

If unsound instruction is listened to or undetected{unjudged}=>the faith of the listener becomes unsound #JudgeRight

July 9, 2016

The Bird of Paradise flower resembles an exotic bird in flight.

Psalm 56:4 AMPC … By [the help of] God I will praise His word; on God I lean, rely, and confidently put my trust; I will not fear. What can man, who is flesh, do to me?

To which I can continually come{fly} –Ps 71:3

  • rest[07931] = settle down, abide, dwell, tabernacle, reside,  have habitation

From Biblehub Ps 55:6

Isaiah 40:31 AMPC … But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Psalm 28:7 NET … The LORD is my strength and my shield{my protection}, I trust in Him with all my heart and I am helped, My heart leaps for joy and with my song I thank Him in gratitude!
