Come learn the Secrets of God's Armor from a new perspective as we examine what the heroes of the faith (Job, David, Peter, Paul, Moses, and Jesus) actually did when they encountered the Devil. What they did perfectly matches up with the pieces of God’s Armor but only after you look past the Roman military metaphor. This book looks at the actual spiritual weapon.
God does not give us theories in Scripture. He tells us how to live in a dynamic and restful way. The same is true when it comes to God’s Armor as revealed in Ephesians 6:10-18. But have we missed what God is really saying? We can avoid the subtle danger in associating this passage too closely with the spiritual armor of the Roman armor. We can choose to believe that the spiritual weapon will act in the same way and with the same limitations as the Roman pieces of armor, but in reality, each of the spiritual pieces of armor is powerful way beyond any comparison to belts, shields, swords, and the like.
This book takes a different approach. The heroes of the faith challenged the strategies of the Devil with truth, righteous actions, strategies of peace, God-designed risk, daring ways of escape, whispers of God’s Word, specific prayers, and feedback-corrected actions. And they won over and over again with these simple but powerful spiritual weapons.
