  When the Enemy of the Soul attacks!

 

When the Enemy of the Soul attacks

O Christian, are you prepared to withstand the assault?

Have you, in reality, already armed yourself with the full Armour of GOD?

Are you going to cower with fear,

Or are you, with the help of GOD,

Going to stand up to the Evil One with the courage of faith?

 

Are you armed with the Belt of  TRUTH

Which gives us the courage of our conviction that

CHRIST is the TRUTH, the WAY, and the LIFE?

Have you put on the Helmet of SALVATION

Which acknowledges that CHRIST died for our sins on the CROSS of CALVARY?

CHRIST paid the full ransom for our souls from Satan

For all men are sinners in the eyes of a HOLY GOD!

Therefore we have, through CHRIST, become children of GOD,

And receive  complete spiritual and angelic protection.

 

Are you wearing the Breastplate of  HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS,

Not our own righteousness,

Which are like filthy rags in GODís sight?

Do you plead for the blood of CHRIST to fully cover you?

Let Christ hedge you in, in front, at the back, by your sides!

Let Almighty GOD hide you under HIS wings, in the cleft of the ROCK,

Even in the palm of HIS HANDS!

Where is your fear then?

Take CHRIST up on HIS PROMISES

To  protect you from the insidious Enemy!

 

Are you equipped with the Shield of FAITH

To ward off all the darts of the EVIL ONE?

Remember CHRIST saying that even if we have

The faith of a mustard seed, it would work miracles!

Always carry the SWORD of THE SPIRIT,

For with The HOLY WORD of GOD

YOU can resist the Devil and he will flee from you!

 

Lastly, wear the shoes of the Gospel of PEACE

To love and  live in harmony with our neighbours,

And walk steadfastly in unity with the BODY of CHRIST

Along the clear pathway of HIS HOLY WORD

Which is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path!

 

O CHRISTIAN, Stand up against the Evil ONE,

Don the full armour of GOD in the battle for your soul!

CHRIST will then  reward  us with

The much coveted CROWN of ETERNAL LIFE!
