The Bible speaks of the following elements of the Christians Armour:
Helmet of Salvation: This is the Salvation that comes from Jesus Christ alone. We cover our minds and our thoughts with the fact knowing that we belong to the Lord Jesus Christ. We keep the Word of God going in our minds and thought life as not to let the enemy begin to plant negative seeds that would grow into things that may cause us to stumble.
Shield of Faith: Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Our faith is not based on what we believe necessarily. Our faith comes in what the Word of God says and our knowing what the Word says. Even when Jesus walked the earth, He put the Devil to flight with “It is written”. If Jesus did this when He walked the earth as a man (as an example for us) we can too.
The Breast Plate of Righteousness: We do not live by our own righteousness. We could never be good enough to be in the family of God. Sometimes the enemy can work in an young believer’s life to try and convince them that they are not “good enough” to belong to Jesus. The price that Jesus paid on Calvary’s cross with His Blood is not based on what we did, however, this price is based on what Jesus Christ did alone. The Breast Plate of Righteousness is His Righteousness and not ours.
We have our Loins Girt with Truth: In other words we have the Truth as the Word of God wrapped around us. Knowing the Jesus Christ is our all in all. That God alone, The Father,Son and the Holy Ghost rules the Universe. The Truth of the Word of God is what we need in our everyday lives. The truth of the Word of God is our strength.
Feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel: We can carry the peace of the Gospel and spread it around to a lost and dying world. When we have that assurance of peace in our hearts, then, this same peace will overflow to that lost and dying world. This is the essence of the Gospel. We should avoid keeping this Good News Gospel just bottled up in our hearts. We should spread the Love and Peace of the Lord.
Sword of the Spirit: The Sword is the Word of God. However, a sword is normally carried in the hand which indicates that this is more of an offensive weapon than a defensive one. We are to use the Word of God against the wiles of the enemy and also to “speak those things that be not as though they were”. God’s Word is powerful and anointed.
Eph: 6: 10-17: 10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
