    Armor of God

    Armor of God
    Rose Publishing
    $3.99
    The Armor of God pamphlet helps teachers and leaders bring Apostle Paul's message to the Ephesians (6:10-18) to life. This bestselling pamphlet provides historically accurate background of a Roman Centurion's armor then draws vital correlations to the spiritual armor God gives his children: the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, Feet Prepared with Gospel of Peace, The Shield of Faith, The Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit. Full-color and printable, this pamphlet helps those you teach learn to "stand firm in the faith."

    Put on the full armor of God when facing temptations and struggles. The key to this pamphlet is the insights brought by Paul's knowledge of a Centurion's armor. The Apostle Paul knew how important it was for believers to understand the provision of spiritual armor that God made for them. Paul's teaching to the Church at Ephesus was borne out of firsthand knowledge of Roman Centurions armor. He saw them up close on many occasions. Having a correct picture in mind is important to accurately teaching and understanding this portion of Scripture. While many other illustrations of The Armor of God show armor from the Middle Ages, or other time periods, the Rose illustration presents historically accurate Roman armor. The Armor of God pamphlet describes each piece of armor, its historical background, and its application to our spiritual battles today.
