This poem is about putting on the full armor of God, as delineated in Ephesians 6:10-18.
Tis the Devil I fight today
I will battle him without delay
Not by my own might
By God’s power that serpent will seek flight
I can do nothing by my power
But all can be done as Christ’s soldier
Don the helmet of salvation to discern spiritual manipulation
You won’t be in a spiritual depression
We put on the full armor of the Lord
And wield the Word of God, the Spirit’s Sword
The breastplate of Christ’s righteousness
Preserves us from Satan’s deadliness
With the belt of truth
We resist Satanic deception forsooth
The shield of faith protects us from doubt
With it, unbelief we shall rout
Our feet will be covered by the Gospel of peace
Even in troubled times we can find solace
And so we have on the full armor of God
Our victory is assured
6 responses to “The Full Armor of God”
“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal” in Ephesians 6, all of the armor is defensive except for the sword, and that is a short sword, mostly used for deflecting blows and close quarters “stabbing”. We should remember people are not the enemy, Untruth and Deception are. And our “attacks” should be application of the Word of God to individual situations in our lives and the communication we have with those whom we would free from the stronghold of Satan’s captivity (2 Tim 2.24-26), specific and sharp to the point as to be easily and clearly understood.
The 2 cor 10 is about the battle for OUR minds and hearts against thoughts and imaginations that oppose the “rule of god” in them. We should never see ourselves in “Battle” with people or for that matter with Satan. We turn that over to God and Jesus. We deal with ideas, hearts and minds with the “sharper than a two edged sword” Word of God we’ve been provided with. Just my 2 cents. – Barabbas
