20 May 2015 - Let's get back to the "Full Armour of God."

The Full Armour of God contd....
There is still so much to share about the "Full Armour".
Dick Mills who has ministered the Word of God throughout the U.S. and in Australia, Mexico, Latin America and Europe, has this to say about the "Full Armour of God":

(Ephesians 6)
. . . We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against . . .   spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
Your tests are not with people - they are not your enemies. Realize that the contest of life is between light and darkness. This is a fight of faith. You cannot fight the battle by maneuvering with strategy and human cleverness, trying to outwit people. 
This fight has two opposing poles:
Light and darkness, right and wrong, good and evil, God and satan. 
Therefore, put on the "Full Armour" and begin to fight the good fight of faith. 
You are not fighting against flesh and blood. You enemies are not human beings. Your competitors are not people. 
The warfare is between ideologies: The Spirit of truth and the spirit of error. 
The warfare is between philosophies: earthly materialism and heavenly treasure. 
The warfare is between two eternal dwelling places: Heaven and hell. 
Therefore do not engage in conflict with people. Your warfare is not on the human level. It is against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, against satan and his cohorts.
satan is trying to destroy the souls of men;
We are called to win souls to Jesus. 
satan is trying to deceive men's minds;
Our calling is to bring them to the mind of Christ. 
satan is trying to divert men's attention from righteous paths. 
Our calling is to illuminate those paths and make them so plain that many shall walk therein. 
Take your eyes off people. They are not your enemies. They are not your competition. You have a much greater foe. 
God says: Then you will be able to win in My Name, by the power of My Word, using the strength, the power, the force that I alone can give. 
When you see the powers of darkness shaken, the powers of evil vanquished, the powers of the enemy put to flight, My Name vindicated, My truth proclaimed, My people released, then truly you will say: "The battle is the Lord's!"
Stand still and see My salvation. I will fight for you, and you will hold your peace. 
Do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (Galations 6:10)
I trust that you found this to be as interesting and as much of a revelation as I did, long ago when I stumbled upon this. I will also share many other spiritual truths with you in time to come. Regards, Herma van Buren-Schele.

Morning all. This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24) For a while I could not "Blog" but now, by God's grace I am back in full force. Never forget that God's grace is new every morning. He said to the apostle Paul: "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." (2 Corinthians 12:9,10) Lots of love.
