With the small pamphlet, The Armor of God, Rose Publishing Co. has provided a tool through which both new and mature Believers might gain a deeper understanding of what the Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:10-18 concerning the war Believers must wage against the schemes of Satan. In these verses, Paul outlines, for the Believer, the weapons God provides for gaining victory in this fight.
This pamphlet does not offer in-depth Biblical analysis, but rather, by illustrating and explaining the armor of the 1st century Roman soldier, it helps to clarify the understanding Paul must have had in mind as he wrote of the Believer being equipped for spiritual warfare. For example, I have studied this passage in some depth for years, and in looking at this chart, I was suddenly struck by the thought that the way shields were used in Roman battle units provided cover on every flank except the rear. The Roman army was designed as an attacking, conquering force. There was no expectation of having to flee before an enemy or of the need to protect a rear flank. Similarly, God expects His army, the church of His Son, Jesus, to be an advancing, victorious force, breaking through the ranks of the enemy.
Use this pamphlet to boost both personal and group Bible study through encouraging deeper thought, discussion, prayer, and ultimate application of the truths of this Scripture passage.
I've been an evangelical Believer for over 50 years. Until I heard a friend, David Jeremiah preach on the details of Ephesians chapter 6, I did not realise the true significance of this----I now prayerfully and with much dedication go through Ephesians 6: 10 through 18 every morning before I face the day. Since I have done this, I am no longer beset fear which the things of this world can bring upon us. If this were not true, Paul would not have made such an effort to include it in the great book of Ephesians! I believe this book is a great way to study just how important this aspect of defense is for Believers. Why? Because Satan IS the ruler of this world. But we have a Holy Advocate in our Lord and Saviour and great gift he left us in the person of the Holy Spirit. Praise His Holy Name forever! Keep Looking Up!--- KM
Our Bible study group will give these pamphlets to the new ladies in our group. We are studying the Promises of God and this information on the Armor of God will support God's promises with the truth of our power in Him. Thanks!
