OUR WEAPONS OF WAR
And take the helmet of salvation. Ephesians 6:17
One of our most important pieces of armor is the helmet of salvation that protects our minds from the onslaught of the enemy's attacks! As believers we have the mind of Christ because our minds have been renewed by the word of God!
In Zechariah 3:1 Joshua the high priest was standing before the Angel of the Lord and Satan was standing at his right hand to oppose him. This is an illustration of how the devil accuses us and what God says to allow us to have the victory! Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, a type of our iniquity and sin, but God said, "Take away the filthy garments from him." And to him He said, "See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I will clothe you with rich robes."
Then He said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head." A type of our helmet of salvation that protects our mind that has been renewed in faith to believe who we are, "The righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!" Just as God cleansed Joshua so He has washed our garments white as snow in the blood of His Son Jesus Christ!
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1,2
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
