Spiritual Weapons to Defeat the Enemy
"The whole armor of God" that worked so effectively for early believers is the very same set of spiritual armor worn by the Church of Jesus Christ today. Just as these early Christians were fully equipped with the whole armor of God for the troubles of their day, we also have the whole armor of God to live victoriously for Jesus Christ during our day. And this armor still works just as effectively as it did then!
Each element of God's spiritual armor - the loin belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of the Spirit, and the lance of prayer and supplication - are still vital, effective, and powerful weapons for the Body of Christ today.
