""ARMED AND DANGEROUS""
by Pastor Tony Sutton

  • Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
  • Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
  • Eph 6:12 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.
  • Eph 6:13 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.
  • Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
  • Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
  • Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
  • Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
  • Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
     IF WE WILL PUT ON THE THINGS OF GOD, THEN WHEN SATAN  COMES WE WILL BE ABLE TO STAND. JESUS FOUND PETER NAKED.
  • John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
     HOW WILL HE FIND YOU? I KNOW PETER WAS PHYSICALLY NAKED, BUT WHEN WE ARE NOT ARMED WE ARE SPIRITUALLY NAKED. AS WE LOOK AT THE ARMOR, THINK IN A SPIRITUAL MANNER.
  • LOINS GIRT WITH TRUTH - WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE HONEST. "IT IS NEVER WRONG TO DO RIGHT AND NEVER RIGHT TO DO WRONG"
  • BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS - WE MUST HAVE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST WITHIN US, SO THAT WHEN SATAN COMES OUR HEART IS SHIELDED.
  • FEET SHOD - WE MUST PREPARE. YOU NEVER GO HIKING IN A PAIR OF HOUSE SHOES, OR RUNNING IN FLIP-FLOPS, NO THERE ARE SHOES FOR THE PURPOSE. JUST AS THEY'RE SCRIPTURE FOR US TO STAND ON. WHEN WE ARE PREPARED WITH THE WORD, THEN WE CAN STAND, AND STAND FIRM.
  • SHIELD OF FAITH - THIS SHIELD ALLOWS US TO STAND OUR GROUND WITH THE CERTAINTY THAT NO MATTER WHAT, GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM.
  • HELMET OF SALVATION - SALVATION IS WHAT COVERS YOU AND I. WITHOUT IT WE ARE FIGHTING A LOSING BATTLE.
  • SWORD OF THE SPIRIT - WHEN CHOOSING A WEAPON YOU MUST CAREFULLY CHOOSE. YOU NEED A WEAPON THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME, THAT WILL BE SUITED FOR ALL BATTLES. THIS WEAPON MUST BE RELIABLE. HE ALSO SAID FOR US TO WATCH AND PRAY ALWAYS

WHO CARES

  • Deu 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
  • Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
  • Deu 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
  • Deu 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
  • Deu 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
  • Deu 6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
          LOOK WITH ME FOR A MOMENT AT DEUTERONOMY. THE WORD SAYS HERE FOR US TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN DILIGENTLY AND TALK OF THE WORD WHILE WE SIT IN OUR HOUSES, AS WE WALK BY THE WAY, WHEN WE LIE DOWN, AND WHEN WE RISE UP. HE SAID FOR US TO BIND IT UPON OUR HANDS AND MAKE IT AS FRONTLETS BETWEEN OUR EYES, AND WRITE THEM UPON THE POSTS OF OUR HOUSE AND GATES. HE WAS TELLING US THAT EVERYWHERE WE TURN WE SHOULD BE MET WITH THE WORD OF GOD, IT SHOULD BE OUR CONVERSATION AND NOT JUST MENTIONED FROM TIME TO TIME. DO YOU WANT TO BE CLOSE TO GOD? DO YOU WANT A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM? DO YOU WANT TO BE A VESSEL OF HONOR? IF YOU WANT IT YOU CAN HAVE IT. ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS WANT IT AS BAD AS YOU WANT THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD.
