READ: Ephesians 6:10-18
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
1 Peter 5:8
Protecting yourself from the attacks of the enemy can be very complicated. After September 11, America realized how vulnerable she was. A myriad of attacks could be launched at America from any angle.
This fact also holds true for believers and that is why we need the whole armour of God. Several attacks are planned and launched against the believer from different angles. Unless we put on the whole armour, we will not be fully protected from the enemy.
The different aspects of the armour will keep you from being invaded by demons. I had an experience years ago that served to eternally stamp this fact in my spirit.
There was a young girl who was possessed with demons. The demon began to speak to us using the girl’s voice. I commanded the demon to cease its activities and to come out of the girl.
I asked the demon spirit, “How did you come into this lady?”
The spirit said, “The belt of truth was loose.” That demon had gained access to this young girl’s life because the protective armour of God was deficient. I cannot tell you exactly how this girl’s belt of truth was loosened. What is important is that a deficiency in the armour had opened the door to evil spirits.
Our spiritual armour is well described in Ephesians. Put every single piece on, and you will be blessed!
