With truth as a belt tight around your waist, with righteousness as your breastplate, and as your shoes the readiness to announce the Good News as a shield; for with it you will be able to put out all the burning arrows shot by the Evil one. And accept salvation as a helmet, and the word of God as the sword which the spirit gives you. Ephesians 6:14-17
This was the armor for all Christian through out all ages to put on for protection against the evil ones. For we are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic power of this dark age.
When we talk about armor, we used to refer it as weapons for soldiers, guards and sentries. Of course, all those who are in battles and as security protection care takers must have all these to stand against attack.
But on the spiritual, Christians are advised to put on special armor for spiritual warfare against the evil ones. It is the armor of God, having prayer life with God, to build relationship too in fellowship so as to allow the Holy Spirit to guide in our daily walk with Jesus.
With all these readiness, full armor of God, we are victorious and are conquerors. We would be like David saying, ” You are coming against me with sword, spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty. Alleluia!
