The Whole Armor Of God

I would like to remind every single christian all over the world including myself that it is time for us to really prepare our souls with what Ephesians 6 says for we are living in the last days and the day of the Lord is approaching and the most important events which are to happen before His second coming are to be accomplished soon. Watch out for the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem, be aware of these things, pay attention to the news which are showing what the Scriptures clearly say about the times of the end. This year is the year we  must prepare with much holiness to the Lord. Prepare your soul under much prayer, fastings and watching out! Lift up as a warrior! It is not time to be worrying about worldly things, but to put on the whole armor of God. This word is for me and it is also for you!

Ephesians 6:10-20

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will 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 with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,  for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

This picture is good to remind us about putting on the whole armor of God every day. You can even print it out if you will:
May God bless us and prepare our souls, purify us, sanctify us, make us white as snow, prepare us as the 5 wise virgins full of oil waiting for Him, watching for His coming. May the Lord fill us up with His Spirit and reveal things ahead for us.!!!! And I also pray that His Holy Spirit be poured out upon those who do not have it for His glory. Amem!

God bless you, me and my family,
