Staying Equipped for Battle!
One of the reasons that we originally put these sites up was to minister to people. Originally, we were led to put up two sites. They were: BUILDING FAITH CONCLAVE PART ONE and PRAYER TIME. WE weren’t getting great amount of traffic at those sites. So we stepped out on faith as we soon saw a need to minister on Healing and we started Healmenow,, Godly Wisdom Is All You Need, by Gene McGuire, Prayer Forces,Pray, Pray, Pray and Building Faith Conclave Part Two. We’re enjoying the opportunity to minister the Word of God and we don’t take this assignment lightly in any way. We are here to serve and our objective is to meet the needs of the people and to carry God’s Word to the uttermost corners of the earth via the new technology. There has been great warfare and so we stay armed. There is much prayer backing our efforts and we also fervently pray for every person that finds any of our 7 sites (with more to be added) whether on purpose or by accident. By faith we say: There are no coincidences! Blessings, We encourage you to put on the full armour of God
THE FULL ARMOUR OF GOD. LET’S LIST:
* THE BELT OF TRUTH
*THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
*THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
*THE SHIELD OF FAITH
*THE HELMET OF SALVATION
*THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
We’ve been called to put on this armour in Romans 13: 12 (and other places) 12The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.
There’s a warning in Luke 21: 36 Keep awake then and watch at all times [be discreet, attentive, and ready], praying that you may have the full strength and ability and be accounted worthy to escape all these things [taken together] that will take place, and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man.
The importance of truth in Ephesians 4: 25 Therefore, rejecting all falsity and being done now with it, let everyone express the truth with his neighbor, for we are all parts of one body and members one of another.(B)
About righteousness: Php 3:9 (NRS) …Not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God based on faith.
God truly confirms His Word in Romans 10: 15 (Amplified) And how can men [be expected to] preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring glad tidings! [How welcome is the coming of those who preach the good news of His good things!]
The Helmet of Salvation is spoken of in Isaiah: And He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor [no one to intervene on behalf of truth and right]; therefore His own arm brought Him victory, and His own righteousness [having the Spirit without measure] sustained Him.(B)
17For [the Lord] put on righteousness as a breastplate or coat of mail, and salvation as a helmet upon His head; He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal [and furious divine jealousy] as a cloak.(C)
and last but by no means least: THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT (which is the Word of God)
Here’s what the Amplified Bible says: For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the [g]breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
13And not a creature exists that is concealed from His sight, but all things are open and exposed, naked and defenseless to the eyes of Him with Whom we have to do.
Read the Word, believe the Word. Don’t wait until you are in a crisis; do it now.
EPHESIANS PRAYER TO THE SAINTS verses 10-17
10In 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].
11Put 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.
12For 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.
13Therefore 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].
14Stand therefore [hold your ground], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God,
15And having shod your feet in preparation [to face the enemy with the [a]firm-footed stability, the promptness, and the readiness [b]produced by the good news] of the Gospel of peace.(B)
16Lift up over all the [covering] shield of [c]saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].
17And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit [d]wields, which is the Word of God.
