I heard, “Fighting from under the Shadow of His Wings. Jesus is your Armor. Hidden with Christ in God!”
When Christians say they are putting on The Armor of God, what exactly is that?
Is it an imaginary thing that we picture in our minds or possibly a spiritual suit of armor? This is what I heard today. “I AM your Armor.”
JESUS is our armor. It can not be separated from Christ Jesus.
It isn’t because we are obedient or doing the right thing that we are clad in HIM. No! We are saved by Grace through faith! We are dressed in GRACE by our Father. Your armor is always on you, Child of God, it never wears out, never comes off, never rusts, never is damaged, YOU ARE CLOTHED IN CHRIST!
“Beloved. No longer think that you are not worthy to be outfitted in the finest Armor that Heaven has to offer.
You are HIDDEN with Christ in your God. Your Armor is the very Son of God Himself.
I AM He who has clothed you in Grace. I have clothed you with Myself.
Do you see now why I have said you are MORE than a conqueror through Him who loves you? I AM Light.
I AM your Armor of Light. I AM your Glory and the Lifter of your head. You have been saved by Grace through faith and not by works lest any should boast.
Those who boast of their earthly armor do not know of what they speak. For you, My Warrior, are clothed in Christ. I hold ALL authority in heaven and on earth.
I AM your Belt of Truth, therefore the father of lies can have no part in you.
I AM your Breastplate of Righteous. I cover your heart with MY Righteousness, therefore let no one condemn you.
I AM your shoes of the gospel of Peace.
I AM the Prince of Peace. I have wrapped your feet in My Shalom Peace. You walk in Christ and you shall never go astray for I AM leading you by the Spirit.
No one shall steal your peace. Beautiful are your feet who carry the gospel of Peace to the world.
I AM your Shield of faith. I have given you My Faith, Beloved. It is supernatural faith. You been saved by Grace through faith.
The fiery darts of the enemy cannot go through He who shields you under My Wings. Who shall condemn you?
There is now therefore NO condemnation to those who are IN Christ Jesus.
I AM your Salvation.
I AM your Helmet.
I AM He who covers your head and you have the Mind of Christ.
I AM He who shields your head when you are in combat, My Soldier.
I took the hits at The Cross so that you don’t have to. I wore a crown of thorns so that you wear My Glorious headdress. I crown you with Glory and Honor.
I AM your Sword of the Spirit.
I AM the Word made flesh who dwelt among you.
I AM your Shield and Helper and your Glorious Sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread upon their heights.
All of My Word proclaims just what the True Armor of God is. You wear the Armor of the King. The angels are amazed and sing for joy to see My Warriors who have put on Christ.
You wear the Armor of Light. I AM the Light of the world. Whom shall you fear, Beloved?
You are the very best dressed Army in all the earth! You are clad in Holy Military Gear unmatched in all of Heaven and earth.
Rejoice greatly, My Warrior, for I have clothed you in My Glory. I have camouflaged you in My Glory. You are hidden in Christ. My Glory you wear shall blind the enemy.
I have clothed you with Heavenly Garments of Salvation and covered you with My Robe of Righteousness, as a Bridegroom decks Himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
You wear the Beauty of My Holiness. There is none more glorious. Who is she who looks forth as the morning, fair as the moon, shining as the sun, terrible, frightful, and awe inspiring as an Army with banners?
It is My Warrior Bride clothed for such a time as this. Forever you are clothed in Christ, abiding in the Shadow of My Wings.”
