12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 NKJV)


There is a Medieval Expression that says, “All roads lead to Rome”, which means there are many different ways that reach the same result, the same outcome, the same destiny. Have you ever heard how people use this expression when you try to share the good news about salvation that Jesus is the only way to the Father and there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved? People use the analogy “going to Heaven-the dwelling place of God” as “going to Rome”.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17 NKJV)

 

Having been talking about the first five “Armor of God” (“The Belt” – May 9, 2017, “The Breast Plate” – May 11, 2017, The Shoes Of The Gospel Of Peace”-May 25, 2017, “The Shield Of Faith”-June 6, 2017 and the Helmet Of Salvation-June 13), let us now talk about the sixth “Armor Of God” - “The Sword Of The Spirit”. Paul the Apostle under the influence of the Holy Spirit uses the Roman sword as an analogy of the sixth armor of God. The Roman sword is a short sword, light quick and very effective for hand to hand combat.

And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17 NKJV)


Having been talking about the first four “Armor of God” (“The Belt” – May 9, 2017, “The Breast Plate” – May 11, 2017, The Shoes Of The Gospel Of Peace”-May 25, 2017 and “The Shield Of Faith”-June 6, 2017), let us now talk about the fifth “Armor Of God” - “The Helmet Of Salvation”. Paul the Apostle under the influence of the Holy Spirit uses Roman helmet as an analogy of the fifth armor of God. The Roman helmet is made of leather and metal or solid cast metal and it is used to protect the soldier against a broadsword three to four feet long.

“Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.” (Ephesians 6:16 NKJV)


Having been talking about the first three “Armor of God” (“The Belt” – May 9, 2017, “The Breast Plate” – May 11, 2017 and The Shoes Of The Gospel Of Peace”-May 25, 2017) let us now talk about the fourth “Armor of God” – “The Shield Of Faith”. Paul the Apostle under the influence of the Holy Spirit uses Roman shield as an analogy of the fourth armor of God. Roman shield is made of wood and leather and later reinforced with metal and its edges are made to lock together as one treated to extinguish dangerous fiery arrows. In hand to hand combat, the shield is used to block weapons such as swords.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:14-15 NKJV).


Having been talking about the first two “Armor of God” (“The Belt” – May 9, 2017, and “The Breast Plate” – May 11, 2017) let us now talk about the third “Armor of God” – “The Shoes Of The Gospel Of Peace”. Paul the Apostle under the influence of the Holy Spirit uses Roman shoes as an analogy of the third armor of God. The Roman soldier wore military shoes with hobnails in the soles that made it possible for them to have a better footing for the battle. This kind of shoes will also protect the soldiers from razor sharp sticks in the ground and it will give them also the ability to move faster, so they can be in the right place at the right time.
