"Sword of the Spirit - the Word of God"

“Sword of the Spirit - the Word of God”

Blessings folk!

Gird your loins with Truth.
Put on the breastplate of righteousness.
Shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
Take up the shield of faith.

All are a part of the armor of God.

Here is the balance.
Most important…

Eph 6:17
And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

The helmet of salvation.
Salvation protects our thoughts.
Salvation protects our corporeal existence.

The sword of the Spirit, the Word of God.
I can not emphasize enough the need to know the Word of God.
So much deceived teaching and preaching is about.
False gospels are spoken everywhere.
Sadly, most do not know that they are hearing falsehood because they do not know the truth.

Paul warned of such…

Gal 3:1-2
You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified?
This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?

There was a false gospel afoot that joined together works with faith for “true salvation”.
We see/hear it today.
Yet, most do not discern such when heard.
Even more dangerous, those who teach/preach this do not know what they are saying.

Gal 1:6-8
I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;
which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!

Know the Word.
Listen carefully to teaching/preaching.
Examine all through the Spirit.
Be alert.
Be ready.

Those who teach/preach, remember, you will be held accountable.
Know the Word, otherwise, step aside.
Be a person of your word.
Be a person of The Word.
