The Armor of Elohim Examined

The Armor of Elohim Examined

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Eph 6:11-18

The Belt of Truth

Psa 119:160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
Jhn 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.

The Breastplate of Righteousness

Deu 4:8 And what great nation is there, that has statutes and rules so righteous as all this law that I set before you today?
Psa 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.
Psa 119:142 Your righteousness is righteous forever, and your law is true.
Isa 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

The Gospel of Peace

Lev 19:18 You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.
Deu 6:5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Psa 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Isa 30:21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.
Mat 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

The Shield of Faith

Psa 119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.
Hab 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Jas 2:17-26 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

The Helmet of Salvation

Gen 24:65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.
Psa 32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
Pro 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mat 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Mat 8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
Mar 13:34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
1Co 11:3-12 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

The Sword of the Spirit, The Word of God

Pro 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Luk 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
Jhn 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
1Ti 4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Eph 6:11-13

(Romans 8:23, Galatians 5:22-23)
Put on us (especially all believing adults present) the armor of Elohim. Gird us with strength, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the preparation for the gospel of peace, the helmet of salvation, the shield of faith which quenches all the fiery arrows of the evil one, the sword of the spirit which is the word of Yah, sharper than any two edged sword. Help us to stand for the glory of your name, in the name of Yahshua.
(2 Samuel 22:40, Psalm 18:32, Proverbs 31:17, Isaiah 59:17, Eph 6:12, 2 Cor 10:5)
I put before you ________ (name all your friends, family, neighbors, people you met or have committed to pray for, elaborate on their needs if you know them)(breathe and listen to the holy spirit if any person needs to be put before YHWH)
(James 5:16, 1 Timothy 2:1, Ephesians 6:18, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Philippians 4:6, Colossians 1:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Matthew 5:44, Matthew 18:19, Hebrews 4:16, Colossians 4:2)

 The enemy WILL constantly try to get back in your home and life. BE READY!!! Be VIGILANT!
(Matthew 12: 43-45, 1 Peter 5:8-10, Proverbs 4:23, Deuteronomy 4:9)

 WE must commit daily. We are slaves to righteousness or slaves to sin.
(Jos 24:15, Deu 11:26, Deu 30:15, Lam 3:22-23, Romans 6:15-23, Matthew 6:24)

Say Daily Prayers
YHWH, please let me stand in the gap (Ezekiel 22:30-31) for ____ and fight for him/her so that his eyes will be opened and he will be freed from demonic bondage so that he can see his need for the commandments of YHWH and the testimony of Yahshua Jesus.

(Matthew 12:15, Luke 4:40, Luke 6:19, Matthew 15:30, Zechariah 3:2, Jude 1:9)


Do not enter battle unless you are certain that THIS is YHWH’s will.  YHWH will not always direct you to proceed.  Perhaps you need backup, more information, perhaps it is someone else’s battle, perhaps you have unrepented sin in your camp and must deal with it first. (Numbers 14:42, Deu 1:42, Joshua 7, Mat 17:21, Mark 6:7, Ecc 4:10)

Say Daily Prayers

You may quietly, but aloud, pray for guidance, pray for the area and people to be surrounded by angels, binding of evil spirits in and around (you will not be able to cast out spirits IN them, but you can ask YHWH to make them be silent), pouring of the holy spirit upon you and the armor of god on you to be on/strengthened.

DO NOT let the enemy speak and if they do speak DO NOT believe ANYTHING they say.  YHWH silence this spirit! Be silent in the name of Yahshua!
(Luk 4:41, Luke 9:55, Matthew 17:18)

(Psalm 22:3, Rev 5:8, Psalm 150:1-6)


If and when the person is able to speak, confirm and make them SPEAK ALOUD that they believe in the bible, in the son of God and His sacrifice for our sins.  Make them speak aloud that they want Yahshua Jesus to be their God (master and commander) and Saviour (perfect sacrifice, not to be trampled).
I believe in the word of God made flesh and ask Yahshua Jesus to be my God and Saviour.

The enemy WILL come back and try to get back in. BE READY!!! Be VIGILANT!
(Matthew 12: 43-45, 1 Peter 5:8-10, Proverbs 4:23, Deuteronomy 4:9)

Now to grow in Christ and remain free from future bondage…

Is Yahshua YHWH?

These are the scriptures that I believe point to Yahshua Jesus being equally YHWH, with The Father and with the Holy Spirit.  Existing before all of creation with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  ALL things being created thru, for and by Him.  The ENTIRE Bible having one and only ONE focal point. And that is Yahshua Jesus, beginning to end.

I believe it is like a family.

Father, Mother, Son, YHWH being their name, much as our last names today.
The entire gospel is then revealed to be the search for a bride worthy of the beloved son. (Genesis 24)

Those who have a child... consider WHAT is your focal point, in everything you do? How much do you desire them to find someone worthy to share their life and love with?  What would you do for them?

If We Confess Our Sins

For those who are are struggling to purify ourselves before the coming Day of the Lord.

I have shared my current battle with illness recently.  Like war, I have to gird myself daily, make sure I put on every defense I have at my hand, and use every weapon that I can find.

And in the midst of it I felt miserably sorry for myself and was not being peaceable in my home.  I knew what I needed. To be alone with HIM, to get centered, to submit to Him and allow Him to show me His perspective. I needed Him to set me on the clear path.

So I went out and sat under a tree and said my daily prayers and then just cried.

"Why? I am trying so hard and walking the very best I know how and seeking to walk better every day.  WHY?"

(Like I said, self pity.  Shameful.)

I have shared with you that I am battling Candida, which is a natural occurring yeast in our bodies.  In it's proper place it helps our bodies digest sugar.  But a few things encourage it out of it's proper place.  Antibiotics, Immune Deficiencies, Mercury Fillings, Cancer, Diabetes.

And Contraceptives.

19 years ago I lived in sin.  And I used contraceptives for two years.  In these two years my life sort of fell apart.  The man I loved, Aaron de Bruyn, dumped me.  I gained about 60lbs. I was terribly depressed.

Which led me to Christ!  I began to learn the word and began to walk, like a newborn baby.  I quit the pills.

My health just got worse. I didn't have cycles for upto a year at a time.  The doctor told me that I would never be able to have children.  She said if I did not drastically change my diet I would die.

She recommended Atkins Controlled Carb.  So I did it. And I lost the weight.  It too was a battle.  But eventually... I put down my armor and my weapons. And I gained it all back, and some.

Now YHWH was truly with me.  He brought my love back into my arms. He brought my love to Christ. He gave us 5 beautiful babies. He gave us a safe and loving home. He gave us fruit trees and chickens and gardens and too many animals.  He filled our lives with JOY.

But inside of me, Candida remained and grew and grew.


And YHWH said,

Rom 1:26-27
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even
-their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:-
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and
-receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.-

I had long known that this verse was not just about homosexuality, but the willingness of both the man and the woman to accept YHWH's will for the 'natural use'.

To conceive.
To nurse.
To raise.
To teach.

Our fruit.

19 years ago, I rejected the natural use.
19 years ago, I received in my body the recompence of my error.

And even though I turned from it, I NEVER admitted that it was a sin in itself.  I never, out loud, repented and bound it and cast it away from me. YHWH blessed my walking in obedience, abundantly.

But it still lived in me, all this time.

EVERY single sin leaves an open door to the enemy.  Every single sin that is not repented of AND confessed gives the enemy a foothold in your life.

When YHWH said these words to me, I didn't feel sorry for myself anymore, because I got my just meet. I confessed. And the painful wound was cauterized.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

To Cleanse - To CAUTERIZE

I share this to encourage you, SEARCH yourselves constantly.

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

May YHWH richly bless you. Shalom!
