📯EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD KNOW AND DO THIS:
📯We must put on the full Armor Of GOD every single day before we step out into this world. This is VITAL. In the spirit we are naked (no cloths/Armor) if we do not put on the Armor Of GOD, which leaves us wide open for the enemy’s arrows (fiery darts) and flaming spears to pierce us (Ephesians 6). The very first thing a new Christian must learn is how to put on the Armor Of GOD and to do it every day, because once we become one with Christ we are a target marked by the enemy and he is coming after the mark to bring us down. We must be so mindful of this. The enemy satan comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy (John 10:10), as a roaring lion seeking all whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). When you make the life changing decision to accept Christ as your LORD and Savior and to be filled with His Holy Spirit, you are instantly changed in the spirit realm as well as in the physical, and spiritual beings see this change of appearance. This is how they target us.
📯The dark side has 4 levels of power under satan also mentioned in Ephesians 6. There are principalities, there are powers, there are rulers of the darkness, and there are hosts (spiritual wickedness in high places). They attack Christians through all 4 levels to bring us down and wear us out so that it is possible that we become useless or powerless in the Kingdom of GOD. They come to bind us with strongholds that keep us under bondage to sin IF they can get us to give in. They come in on special assignments to attack or buffet us to try to hinder us from our spiritual height and depth which is our ability to do serious damage to the kingdom of darkness. Sometimes these can be lifelong assignments depending upon the threat level we pose to them, like with Paul (2 Corinthians 12:6-8). In any way or form they can, they are coming for us and we MUST be able and ready to engage the enemy in spiritual warfare and to know how to and be able to defeat him EVERY TIME through Christ Jesus, our Rock and Defender. Jesus is our Front and Rear Guard and the battle does not belong to us, it belongs to Him. This is why we need to remain guarded and covered at all times, and knowing how to surrender the battle to Him through the powers of prayer and worship (WARship).
📯I have come to find that I need to expect the attack and to accept the fact that because I wrestle not against flesh and blood but against these spiritual levels of power, if I do not put on the full Armor Of GOD every single day BEFORE I leave my home traveling into this wicked world, all of hell breaks loose in my day and in my life. The demonic realm is always looking for a way in, and if they spot a Christian without any Armor on, those fiery darts and flaming arrows and spears come flying for the mark to spiritually wound us and to take us completely down. Just going one day without taking the time to take on the full Armor Of GOD can wreak havoc in the spirit and we can be completely unaware of being hit until further down the road as the wound festers with infection.
📯On account of these things, every Christian should know about the saving, healing, and protection power of the Blood of Jesus! What can wash away our sin? What can make us whole again? NOTHING but the Blood of Jesus. I have found it very sad and discomfiting that many churches do not even touch on the power of the Blood of Jesus anymore. Christians are not being taught about the full Armor Of GOD and how to equip themselves with the weapons of their warfare which are not carnal but mighty through GOD (2 Corinthians 10:4). The Blood of Jesus is our protective covering that we must also apply every day just like the Armor. It is like a protective veil that shields us from the desires, plots, devices, requests, and schemes of the enemy. We must cover ourselves, our family and loved ones, our home, our pets, our work place, our entire lives, every day, in His Blood: DAILY.
📯I’ve been doing this for years now and I notice a severe penalty damage if I forget to apply the Blood of Jesus. All throughout the Word Of GOD, the Blood was ALWAYS spilled upon the altar for the covering of sin and for protection from the enemy. As it was in the days of old it still remains today, for GOD is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hallelujah to the blessed sacrificial Lamb of GOD, Jesus Christ, Who came as our blood sacrifice to die for all sin of all time, that through Him we obtain a propitiation (1 John 2:2), no longer needing to perform blood sacrifices on an altar every morning and every evening as in the Old Covenant! However, the Blood is just as important now as it was then. Christ came to defeat the power of satan over us and to reconcile us back to GOD, to make a Way for us to obtain eternal salvation through Him which sets us free from the bondage of the curse of sin and the devil.
📯As soldiers of Christ in these last days these things are a vital part of who we are and what we must do to protect ourselves and the ones we love and to know how to fight our way through this wicked world. The warfare will still come, yes indeed, and even more-so the higher of a threat level you become to the enemy and his kingdom of darkness. Always remember as well, if the enemy cannot get directly at you (because you are armed up covered in the Blood of Jesus and strong in The LORD and in the power of His might), then he will come in for the kill through other people around you. Satan is relentless and will not stop his power-tripping until the very day he is bound and cast into the bottomless pit for 1,000 years. He is the king of pride and he IS coming after you. Expect the attack and accept the fact that you are a target for the kill on the devils’ hit-list. BUT: GREATER IS HE WHO LIVES IN YOU THAN THAT OLD DEVIL! Jesus wins, every time. As strong and as powerful as satan is, he is no match for the King of Kings and LORD of Hosts: and YOU are a King’s Kid!
📯YOU ARE MARKED: ACCEPT THIS FACT
📯EXPECT THE ATTACK
📯PUT ON THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD DAILY
📯COVER UP IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS DAILY
📯KNOW AND ENGAGE YOUR WEAPONS OF WARFARE
📯BE NOT IGNORANT TO THE ENEMY’S DEVICES
📯BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT! YOU WERE BORN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!
📯”Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”📯Ephesians 6:10-18📯
📯”For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”📯2 Corinthians 10:3-6📯
📯”For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.”📯2 Corinthians 12:6-8📯
📯”Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”📯1 Peter 5:8📯
📯”The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”📯John 10:10📯
📯”My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”📯1 John 2:1-2📯
📯”But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.”📯Hebrews 9:11-15📯
