Week Two Homework | Covenant 2-4 | Kay Arthur

In Full Armor!

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. Eph 6:11

Why Armor? Colossians 1:13 tells us that when you receive Jesus Christ you move from the kingdom of Satan to the kingdom of God- and Satan desires to have you, even as he was demanding permission to get to Peter, that he might sift him as wheat. Luke 22:31

In John 8:44 Jesus describes the Devil as the Father of Lies.

Our note card verses this week are pointed toward spiritual warfare. Remember Satan is the prince of this world with the entire world lying in his power, then you need armor, don't you? Of course! That's what spiritual warfare is all about.

We learn about the complete Armor of God in Eph 6.
vs.14 Loins with Truth and having put on the Breastplate of Righteousness
vs.16 Shield of Faith
vs.17 The helmet of Salation and that the Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God.

Girls we use the sword in battle not only to defend ourselves but also to put the enemy to death!

What does John 17:15-17 say about the Evil One and about Truth?

The Word of God protects us from the evil one, because the Word is Truth and the evil one flees from every Word out of the mouth of God.

Now this is gonna blow you away, well at least it did me! Love how this all ties in.

Read Rev 19:11-16 ....let me outline it the best I can.

-Rider on white horse, proclaiming His name.

-His name is the Word of God.

-Out of his mouth comes a sharp double-edged sword. (Sword is the Word of God)

On the day the Lord returns,
You are in your car driving home. Thoughts wander to the game you want to see or meal you want to eat, when suddenly a sound unlike any you've ever heard fills the air. The sound is high above you. A trumpet? A choir? A choir of trumpets? You don't know, but you want to know.. So you pull over, get out of your car, and look up. As you do, you see you aren't the only curious one. The roadside has become a parking lot. Car doors are open, and people are Staring at the sky. Shoppers are racing out of the grocery store. The Little League baseball game across the street has come to a halt.. Players and parents are searching the clouds And what they see, and what you see, has never before been seen.

As if the sky were a curtain, the drapes of the atmosphere part. A brilliant light spills onto the earth. There are no shadows. None.

From every hue ever seen and a million more never seen. Riding on the flow is an endless fleet of angels.. They pass through the curtains one myriad at a time, until they occupy every square inch of the sky. North. South. East. West.

Thousands of silvery wings rise and fall in unison, and over the sound of the trumpets, you can hear the cherubim and seraphim chanting, Holy, holy, holy... The final flank of angels is followed by twenty-four silver-bearded elders and a multitude of souls who join the angels in worship.
Suddenly, the heavens are quiet. All is quiet. The angels turn, you turn, the entire world turns and there He is.... Jesus.
Through waves of light you see the silhouetted figure of Christ the King. He is atop a great stallion, and the stallion is atop a billowing cloud. He opens his mouth, and you are surrounded by his declaration:
I am the Alpha and the Omega.

The angels bow their heads... The elders remove their crowns... And before you is a Figure so consuming that you know, instantly you know: Nothing else matters...... Forget stock markets and school reports. Sales meetings and football games. Nothing is newsworthy... All that mattered, matters no more... For Christ has come.

Shout for praise!

Have a awesome day with the Lord!
