July 1, 2016The Full Armor - Song History WORDS & MUSIC Dennis Jernigan July 19, 2016 As I look at the state of our culture, it is quite easy to see we are at war for the minds of the next generation. The battleground is, indeed, the mind. People are not the enemy. The enemy - the Liar - is the enemy. As I meditate on such Truths I am reminded that as a new creation I have been called to war - to spiritual warfare. As a soldier of Christ, I have been equipped with all the armor and weaponry I will ever need. This song is a simple reminder to my own soul of these very Truths. Dennis Jernigan
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, HAVING GIRDED YOUR LOINS WITH TRUTH, and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, and having shod YOUR FEET WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Ephesians 6:10-17 NASB
Verse Our struggle is not with flesh and blood, But with the forces of darkness! Simple human strength is never quite enough! We must put on the full armor!
I will gird up my loins with the Truth! Cover my heart with the breastplate of Righteousness! Boldly proclaiming who I am!
Cover my feet with the Gospel of Peace! Cover my mind with the Helmet of Salvation And triumphantly stand!
Chorus Armed with the Shield of Faith And wielding the Sword of the Spirit! Proclaim the name of Jesus so the enemy can hear it!
The Living Word of God pierces the darkness! And it stands forever!
Armed with the Shield of Faith And wielding the Sword of the Spirit! Proclaim the name of Jesus so the enemy can hear it!
The Living Word of God pierces the darkness! And it stands forever! Forever! Forever!
