BLAZING ARROWS

BOOK OF EPHESIANS LAYS OUT WHO WE ARE IN CHRIST

Eph 6:10  Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last: Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.
FOR LAST……..AFTER WE ARE IN CHRIST
SUPERNATURALLY INFUSED= ONE

Eph.6:11 Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser!

THIS IS ONE TIME EXPERIENCE! PUT IT ON, LEAVE IT ON!

Eph.6:12 Your hand-to-hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demon-gods and evil spirits that hold this dark world in bondage
PRINCIPALITIES=APPLICATIONS, ORDER, TIME, PLACE, RANK.
AUTHORITIES IN REBELLION=DELEGATED INFLUENCE
DEMON GODS=WORLD RULER, EPITHET OF SATAN
EVIL SPIRITS=MALICE, SIN

Eph.6:13 Because of this, you MUST wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slanderer, for you are destined for all things and will rise victorious.
BECAUSE OF THIS=ALWAYS
PROTECTED=STAND AGAINST
DESTINED = PLANNED
RISE VICTORIOUS =ABIDE

Eph.6:14 Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart.
TRUTH= NOTHING HIDDEN
HOLINESS= RIGHTEOUSNESS

Eph.6:15 Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace.
STAND= ABIDE
BLESSINGS= GOD’S WILL

Eph.6:16 In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One!
FAITH= WHAT YOU BELIEVE
BLAZING ARROWS, =ACTIONS, WORDS, THOUGHTS
SHIELD=PORTAL, DOOR= a way of escape
1 Corinthians 10:13 We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victoriously.

Eph.6:17 Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God.
HELMET=ENCIRCLEMENT

SPOKEN WORD! ENOUGH SAID!

Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times
Eph.6:18 Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers. And pray also that God’s revelation would be released through me every time I preach the wonderful mystery of the hope-filled gospel.

Eph 6:19 And pray also that God’s revelation would be released through me every time I preach the wonderful mystery of the hope-filled gospel. Yes, pray that I may preach the wonderful news of God’s kingdom with bold freedom at every opportunity.

Eph.6:20 Even though I am chained as a prisoner, I am his ambassador
AMBASSADOR =  ACT AS A REPRESENTATIVE
Romans 8:37 Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!
