The Lord is saying, “Get your sword and your shield, your girdle and your breastplate, your helmet and your belt, your shoes and your armor. Wear them everyday because you are in a battle everyday. If you’ve had a change of heart and you no longer follow your flesh but you follow your spirit you will win each and every battle. The enemy wants your mind. He wants to make you think what he wants you to think, so that you will not follow me and do those things that would bless you. He wants you to be illegal as he is. You are citizens of the kingdom of heaven. Guard your thoughts at all times and keep them clean. Guard your membership. Stand your guard to remain holy. Be holy for I am holy, be righteous. Stay that way. There is nothing that this world can offer you that is eternal. Anything that this world has to offer is only temporary. Everyday that you wake up you’ll see new answers to the questions that you’ve been asking for years. I promise that I will not let one day go by that the Holy Spirit is not working within you ready to answer any questions you may have. Let the gospel be like fire shut up in your bones. Preach it everywhere. When people don’t accept you move on. There are those that need to hear about me. There are those around the world that need a Savior. Once the whole world gets a chance to hear about me I will be back. There will be those who will reject me but that is not your fault. Just as you think I am awesome I think you are awesome. We are family and I love you.”
6 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
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.
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.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
