The Armor Of God Protects

Ephesians 6:10
Finally, be strong in the Lord and his mighty power. 11 Put on the whole armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

A genuine Christian does w/out things that bring temporary joy and pleasure but come with them a more significant demonic implication.

Examples

-Fornication
-Sexual Immorality
-Cursing
-Getting Drunk

The miracle?

When we were w/out Christ; we did all those things, but with Him, we are made pure because of Christ’s Spirit.

A genuine born-again believer will eventually become like Christ if we strive for godliness instead of worldly pleasure.

At the beginning of a new walk with Christ, it takes a few years to be changed due to the power of Christ’s Spirit, so don’t be alarmed if you are not there yet.

However, for the lifelong Christian still living in the devils’ ways, there is a distinct issue. It’s time to question if you are saved at all, or have you backslidden so severely you rely solely on the belief of Jesus but blinded to think living in sin is ok.

Respectfully, it is not ok, and no one will see the Kingdom of Heaven without actively pursuing Christ’s Spirit to be made holy.

Luke 18:19
“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.

Being a nice person will not gain anyone Heaven, nor will religion, sacraments, tradition, or a false belief that good deeds are enough. The Bible says good deeds are as good as filthy rags.

Isaiah 64:5-7
You’re welcome those who gladly do right, who remember Your ways. Indeed You were angry, for we sinned. How can we be saved if we remain in our sins? 6Each of us has become like something unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all wither like a leaf, and our iniquities carry us away like the wind. 7No one calls on Your name or strives to take hold of You. For You have hidden Your face from us and delivered us into the hand of our iniquity.

The power of the word brings healing, and feeds the Spirit’s power; we must fill with the Spiritual bread, which is the word of God.

In Romans 12:2, we are taught, “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

The Holy Spirit of Christ does for us what we cannot do for ourselves otherwise. Today is the day to seek the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on anything you may have heard before to trust Christ.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

God Bless you,

  1. Hi I’m a new follower and I’m 12 years old. I think I have fallen away form Christ. Since I used to pray a lot more and I just stopped now I fell condemned. I just want to know if there is any hope for me .

    1. Hello Ruby, and thank you for your message. First, Jesus loves you so much, and no matter how many mistakes you and I make, He will forgive you when you repent.

      To repent means you are sincerely sorry to God for sin. Jesus will always forgive our wrongs when we are sorry to Him for what we have done, and guess what?

      He forgives and forgets about the old sin, so once you repent and pray again, so should you. Never hold onto that old stuff once you give it to Jesus to make clean.

      I think it’s beautiful that a girl your age has already placed her faith in Jesus. This is very wise, and I’m sure your parents have something to do with that. It’s great to hear. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is so important in our lives, and we all must read it. There is power in the word of God to help us grow Spiritually, so you don’t feel condemned when you make a mistake.

      You mentioned you had fallen away from Christ. It happens to many people when we stop making time for God to use our phones or watch TV; anything at all can become an idol placed before God, and that’s not good. Still, we can change that by starting over, and even adults do this, so it doesn’t surprise me that you have stopped making time for Jesus.

      But you should know that everything you do in life, all of the love, fun, joy, and every gift you have come from Jesus. He died on the cross so that we may have life, and so we all have to make time for Him.

      You are not condemned, child, not at all. These are evil Spirits that make us think that, but as a Christian, you have the power to say, “evil spirit, I rebuke you and won’t listen to you. Go away in Jesus’ name,” and poof. They have to leave under Christ’s authority.

      Ruby, you have to start praying again to Jesus. The only thing you have to do is get down and start praying. May I suggest 15 minutes every morning before school?

      You seem mature for twelve years old, and you can do it. Tell God you want to make this agreement with Him because you love Him and need His help. He already loves you.

      There is always hope in Jesus Christ because, Ruby, Jesus is our hope, and He never changes.

      1 John 5:13-14
      I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life. And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

      1 Thessalonians 1:3
      We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

      You see, our hope is always in Jesus, and in your love for Him, you can start over and pray again, and please start reading your Bible.

      Do you have one?

      Well, I hope this helps you, and God bless you, dear girl. I pray for you the light of Christ in your life and overall that you and your brother do, in Jesus’ name.

      God Bless you!

      -Christine
