The Whole Armor of God, by renowned 19th century pastor John Henry Jowett, presents important detail that is critical to the spiritual walk. The God’s armour prepares the Christian – especially new believers – for spiritual warfare. Understanding the nature and significance of each piece of armor enables believers to safeguard against becoming a casualty; it also strengthens soul-winning efforts. Like it or not, we are at war and we must stand tall! Part of God’s strategy is to place believers directly in harm’s way. We must resist the enemy and cause him to flee (James 4:7). We must strive to establish a “beachhead” in enemy territory, a model of the coming greater Kingdom of God.
