The Helmet and Sword
The helmet of the salvation is the portion of the Roman equipment that kept the soldier safe from flying arrows and protected the head from swords when in combat. Today, the six pieces of the armaments are Spiritual garments we must put on to protect us from the devil’s schemes.
Ephesians 6:17 states we must, “Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
The helmet is Father God’s word that is a weapon to keep us from faltering in our faith when the enemy comes against us with his lies. We use Scriptures to fight the devil when he comes and whispers in our ears. The sword is used to fight off the daggers we encounter when our family, job, and friends go against us, and life seems to throw us under the bus. Pick up your Bible, read and pray, and call on the name of Jesus Christ, and the enemy will depart from you for a while. Take time and read the Bible this week.
