The gifts:
The Belt- gird up our Minds
The Breastplate—our practice and position go together
Shod our Feet—Our wills are submitted to God’s Will
Shield of Faith—We believe and trust God
Sword of the Spirit—
The “Sword” is the Word of God—This gift is to be used for “offensive” purposes—With the sword we are to deal death blows to the enemy.
This is a “sword” that the Spirit of God provides, the Word of God.
It has been furnished by the Holy Spirit.
He, the Holy Spirit, gives the sword its “effectiveness”, its actual cutting edge.
-
Conviction——The Sword of the Spirit is used to “penetrate” hearts with conviction about sin, righteousness and judgment.

New Birth-
Maturing New Believers-
We are to USE it!
-Read it-
-Meditate on it- doing so brings victory.
(Psa 1:1-3)
READ
-Memorize it-
-Memorize it-
-Study it-
My SPIRIT that is upon thee, and my WORDS which I have put in the mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth.
This is the WORD of the Lord … not by might, nor by power, but by My SPIRIT saith the Lord.
The HOLY GHOST shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to SAY.
It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the WORDS that I speak, … they are SPIRIT, and they are life.
They were all filled with the HOLY GHOST, and they spake the WORD of God with boldness.
For to one is given by the SPIRIT the WORD of wisdom.
To another the WORD of knowledge, by the same SPIRIT.
Our Gospel came not unto you in WORD only, but also in power, and in the HOLY GHOST.
Be thou an example of the believers in WORD … in SPIRIT …

Just as it would be foolish for a soldier in an earthly army to neglect the only weapon he is issued, so it is foolish for the Christian to neglect the “Mastery” of the one weapon at his disposal, being filled with the Holy Spirit.
“Take the Helmet of Salvation”-
HOPE
Jesus is the gift of Love from God—
Salvation—
Salvation—GOD planned it—JESUS paid for it—THE HOLY SPIRIT brings it.
GOD planned it—JESUS paid for it—THE HOLY SPIRIT brings it.
The first step is to “take”—take hold of, to grasp, to receive, to accept!
Paul’s intent of the helmet is to give us a picture of the “protection” that salvation provides.
The “helmet” of salvation is the assurance of salvation and the resulting confidence it brings.
A helmet is a “confidence builder”.
Properly worn and used, it affords protection.
Imagine the “helmet of salvation” placed on our heads by the nail pierced hands of Christ at our conversion.
The helmet assures us that whatever happens, we will be saved and experience victory in Christ.
To put on the “helmet of salvation” is to realize one’s New Identity in Christ!
FULL COVERAGE
I have an insurance policy
Written in the blood of the Lamb,
Sealed by the Cross of Jesus,
Redeemable wherever I am!
The company will never go bankrupt,
It is bonded by God’s promise true;
It will keep every word of its contract,
Exactly what it says it will do.
I don’t have to die to collect it,
No premiums do I have to pay;
All I do is to keep God’s promise
And walk in His holy way.
No collector will ever come calling,
It was paid on Calvary’s tree;
It insures me for living and dying
And for all eternity.
Tan, P. L. (1996).
