The Stand


A Mini Series on The Armor of God

“Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.” This is not only the key to understanding the armor, but it is also exactly what we are called to stand in.

The armor has everything to do with you standing in it than it has to do with you putting it on!

Today in this introductory message on the armor of God I want to remind you that

  • greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world.
  • I want to remind you that you have been born of God.
  • He has He hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of His dear Son
  • By virtue of your faith in Him – you have been made victorious.
    It is from this vintage point – in this victory that Paul calls you to take a stand.

I hear people say that we need to put the armor on every day.
But my question is – if we are to be ready in season and out of season… if we have to be vigilant- because our adversary the devil seeks whom he may devour… seeks whom he may catch off guard…
than it makes sense to me to stand in my armor in season and out of season

Ephesians 6:13-14
“Having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore.”

The armor of God is the spiritual grace and inheritance that we have due to the life altering, supernatural transformation we have in Christ.

We are call to stand in the working of His incomparably great power that is available to those who believe.

The scripture says,
“That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms.”

This power – you don’t put On! Why? Because it’s already inside of you! That’s why Paul told his readers to do everything within their power to stand.
“For it is in your standing that you will be able to withstand the evil day.” (wb)

Friends, the evil day is coming- how firm is your stand?

Heavenly Father we thank you for the victory you have won for us – today we stand in that victory. Amen!
