Put On The Full Armor Of God
A full devotional is packaged with each figurine that expands on the concept behind the “Full Armor of God” and the six ways to fight and win spiritual battles. The excerpts below provide a small hint of the Apostle Paul’s method for victory
Spiritual Warfare Is A Reality
We are surrounded by a world that operates on hard facts. The spiritual side of life seems so unreal in this age of megabytes and mobile phones, yet its existence is very much a reality.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Ephesian church warning them about the enemy of their faith, a foe that must be fought on a spiritual battlefield. Paul uses the term “powers of this dark world” to aptly describe Satan’s forces. To Paul, this battle was not a mini-series or best selling novel. It was a real struggle grounded in truth.
Fear was not an issue to the Apostle, but deception was. His instruction to the Ephesian church was to be aware of the “devil’s schemes” – to stand strong against the ones who desired to destroy their life example which was familiar to his audience..the Roman army and its armor.
