Take up the whole armour of God

Galatians 3:7
  • Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham.

If we have faith, we are children of Abraham and we are blessed along with him.

He is the father of many nations including us, Gentiles. God justified him on the basis of his faith in God.

Likewise, we are justified in God's sight on the basis of our faith in God.

Therefore, we are, by faith, descendants (or children) of Abraham and the promises of God also apply to us because of our faith in God now.

Additionally, we know that we have entered the kingdom of Light in which righteousness dwells and our King is Jesus Christ.

We once were under the reign of Satan who is the prince of the kingdom of darkness who works in all people who have not yet been translated to the kingdom of light through faith by grace of Jesus Christ.

We are in the middle of a spiritual warfare and this is a warfare of faith. We are not fighting against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, principalities, powers of this dark world, and spiritual forces of evil in the spiritual realm.

God is our Lord in this spiritual war, and we fight with the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God with the helmet of salvation and the belt of truth and the shield of faith which can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Ephesians 6:18
  • And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
