The "WHOLE" Armour of God

 
 
 
Know Your Enemy!
Quote From Oliver North
 
In my 22 years as an officer of Marines — from Annapolis to the Basic School to the Naval War College — ...was drilled into us: to know your enemy.

 
The scriptures advise us to do the same, and provide us with all the information we need to do that. 
 
There is no way we can effectively protect ourselves from an enemy we know little to nothing about.

Ephesians 6:10-18 KJV
 
Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might.
 
Put on the whole armour of God that you might be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
 
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
 
Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
 
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with the truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
 
And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace;
 
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (one).
 
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God:
 
Praying always....

I have heard the "Armour of God" mentioned many times in my 30+ years of serving the Lord, but I have yet to hear a solid teaching on how to put it on or how to use it properly.
 
Getting up in the morning and mentally (picturing ourselves) girding our loins with the truth, picturing ourselves putting on the breastplate of righteousness, mentally donning our foot armour or mentally picking up a shield and putting on a helmet will not help us.
 
This is a completely useless exercise!
 
Yet  I have heard Christians instructed, many times, to do this very thing, and that is about the extent (with very few exceptions) of the teaching on the armour I have heard in 25 years.
 
In this section I will attempt to cover Ephesians 6:1-18 in as much detail as possible in the hopes we can be equipped properly (and know how to use the equipment!) to withstand a very real, very powerful spiritual enemy.
