""ARMED AND DANGEROUS""
Pastor Tony Sutton
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
- 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
- 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.
GIRT WITH TRUTH - WE
SHOULD ALWAYS BE HONEST. "IT IS NEVER WRONG TO DO RIGHT AND
NEVER RIGHT TO DO WRONG"
OF RIGHTEOUSNESS -
MUST HAVE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST WITHIN US, SO THAT WHEN
SATAN COMES OUR HEART IS SHIELDED.
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.
OF FAITH -
THIS SHIELD ALLOWS US TO STAND OUR GROUND WITH THE CERTAINTY
THAT NO MATTER WHAT, GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM.
OF SALVATION - SALVATION
IS WHAT COVERS YOU AND I. WITHOUT IT WE ARE FIGHTING A LOSING
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
- Deu 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one
- Deu 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God
with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy
- 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
- Deu 6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the
posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
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.

Lord, inspired you to re-dedicate your life to the Lord, or simply
been a Blessing unto you?
