SPIRITUAL ARMOUR OF GOD (Eph 6:10)
Every armed force is characterized with different ammunitions that serve as physical guard (ARMOUR) against internal or external attack.
However, a child will always look on the parents as the guard as well as a wife often looks on his husband as a guard.
Guard becomes inevitable factor that determines or measure the sustainability or longevity of life span.
The survivor of nation is not certain if the army is not equipped with the necessitous ammunitions, every community hires watchman so as to protect from sudden or instant attack.
Guard essentiality can neither be obsolete nor loose its value when it comes to matter relating to protection.
Consequently, everyone depend on one factor or another that protect individual from sudden attack.
In addition, guard (Armour) is an indispensable factor for the survivor of every mankind.
Having had a change of mentality that armour simply means a guard.
Guards enhances the limit or restrict the power of harmful substances, it perhaps make demarcation between harmful substances and the inhabitants. As everyone has physical armour, so applicable to spiritual realm.
It is my pleasure to arrive at the conclusion that the essentiality of spiritual guard is more valuable and crucial than physical guard. However, one has to understand that any physical occurrence circumstances have always been settled in the spiritual realm before it revealed. In addition, there are many instances that lead to causalities in spite the physical guard but as the result of absence of the spiritual guard. Everything that is seen physically, are directed in the realm of spirit. Hence, physical guard is not effective without alignment with spiritual armour.
In spirituality dispensation of life, “physical guard is impotent without spiritual guard”.
That is why you see a spiritual person command a thief to drop his weapon in Jesus name, in which he does. However, such person demonstrated spiritual guard because he knows that the weapon to fight physical battle dues in the spiritual realm. 2 Cor 10:3-4
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 hold.
Spiritual armour is not a joke but an affirmation that describe the way we operate to the physical happenings.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the armour of God that ye may be able to stand against wiles of the devil.
When you have God, you definitely entitled to certain possessions, a life without God does not entitle to spiritual protection.
Moreover, armour of God is certain; when you are strong in the lord and in the power of his might, as it is one of the factor that speed us up to stand against devil.
FACTORS THAT BRINGS VICTORY
No victory without guard, as it is necessary for very soldier to put on guard because it necessitates victory. It is also applicable for (Christian) spiritual soldier to put on necessary guard if will desire victory.
In other words, Paul Apostle explained different factors that facilitate victory in Ephesians chapter six verse thirteen to seventeen (Eph 6:13-17).
He emphasized on different keynote as it is very imperative for any Christian that desire for victory.
In conclusion, victory is assured if we diligently put on the armour of God.
