Growing in Faith & Love



 Say: I am strong in Yahweh, and in the power of His might. I put on the whole armor of Elohim, in the name of Yahshua, that I may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Because I am wearing it, I am able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (the judgment). I come against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world and against spiritual wickedness in high places, in the name of Yahshua the Messiah. Ephesians 6:10-18.

I gird my loins with (put on) the belt of truth. “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6. “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32.

I put on the breastplate of righteousness. For he hath made him (Yahshua) sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of Yahweh in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21. … “putting on the breastplate of faith and love;” 1 Thessalonians 5:8. (1 John 3:7; Romans 6:22; 2 Corinthians 3:9)

I wear the shoes of the good news of peace. Yahshua said, I am the door of the sheepfold, John 10:1, 7. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace …” Isaiah 52:7.

I take the shield of faith. “…to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” Ephesians 6:16. “So then Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of Yahweh.” Romans 10:17.

I put on my helmet of hope of salvation. “…when he shall appear, we shall be like him…And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.” 1 John 3:2-3. “…and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For Elohim hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Master, Yahshua the Messiah, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.” 1 Thessalonians 5:8-10.

I take the sword of the Spirit and my knowledge of how to use the word of Elohim against the adversary. “Study to show thyself approved unto Elohim, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15.

I claim the promises and declare the decrees of my Heavenly Father. Psalm 2:7. “For the word of Elohim is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12.

I pray always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, (for self and others) and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; … that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the good news. Ephesians 6:18-19.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:” Matthew 7:7.

“I can do all things through the Messiah which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13.
