Class 18: The Whole Armour of God!

Part 18: Taking up your sword

(This is part 18 of 19 parts in this class)


There are a number of things you are going to need to do if the sword of the spirit is to be an effective part of your armoury.

Firstly, you will have to get to know by heart some striking scriptures. As David used diligence in selecting his stones for his battle against Goliath so you'll need to use diligence in selecting scriptures for your battles. Like David also you'll need to deposit them in your pouch - the pouch your heart provides for God's word. 1 Samuel 17:40.

Secondly, you're going to need to get skilfull in using the word of God. The word of God is very specific and it needs to be used very specifically in order to have dynamic and full impact. (See 2 Timothy 2:15; Hebrews 5:13-14.)


Thirdly, you're going to need to get bold with the word of God. For this you need to pray as the disciples prayed. They requested of God,

Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word.

Acts 4:29 - NKJV


God's answer to this prayer came immediately. The Bible tells us,

And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

Acts 4:31 - NKJV


Take the sword of the spirit! Wield the sword of the spirit! It's the offensive part of the whole armour of God!
