What Mysteries And Hidden Truths Are Revealed To Apostles And Prophets – Spiritual Reading.



The thing taught in the Bible regarding the inspiration of the Apostles and Prophets, the inspiration of the various authors of the books of the Bible, is that truth hidden from men for ages, and which they had not discovered, and could not discover, by the unaided processes of human reasoning, even human reasoning at its very best and highest, has been revealed to Apostles and Prophets in the Holy Spirit.


We find this very clearly taught in Eph. 3:2-5: “If so be that ye have heard of the dispensation of that grace of God which was given me to you-ward; (3) how that by revelation was made known unto me the mystery, as I wrote before in few words, (4) whereby when ye read, ye can perceive my understanding in the mystery of Christ; (5) which in other generations was not made known unto the sons of men, as it hath now been revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit.” 


The meaning of these words is unmistakable. Paul here declares in words the meaning of which is perfectly plain, that God “in the Spirit” had revealed “unto His holy apostles and prophets” “the mystery of Christ” which in former generations had not been made known unto the sons of men, which they had not discovered and could not discover except by revelation from God; Paul and the other apostles and prophets knew it by direct revelation from God himself through the Holy Ghost.


The teaching is inescapable that the Bible contains truth that men never had discovered and never could have discovered if left to themselves, but truth which the Father in great grace has revealed to His children through His servants the prophets and apostles. We see in this the folly, a folly so common in our day, of seeking to test the statements of Scripture by the conclusions of human reasoning, or by the intuitions of the “Christian consciousness.”


The revelation of God transcends human reasoning, and therefore human reasoning cannot be its test. Furthermore, a consciousness that is truly and fully Christian is the product of the study and absorption of Bible truth. It is not the test of the truth of the Bible,—it is the product of meditation on the Bible. If our “consciousness” differs from the statements of the Bible, it is not as yet a fully “Christian consciousness,” and the thing for us to do is not to try to pull God’s revelation down to the level of our consciousness but to tone our consciousness up to the level of God’s Word.

You Have Invisible Protection And Provisions Against Witches And The Wiles Of The Devil.

Sometimes without many of us realizing it, God has surrounded us with an invisible army that constantly protects and seals us. We might not always see it, but we can be certain that behind the scenes, God is fighting on our behalf and doing great works we might never know about.

There are many mysteries whose meanings we do not know at this time. There are battles in the spiritual that we might not be able to see with our physical eyes. Sometimes our spiritual eyes are closed and we are not able to have a glimpse of what is taking place in the spiritual and the heavenlies.

In the Bible story below, Elisha the Prophet’s servant thought they were surrounded by the enemy and he was worried not knowing what they would do since they seemed out numbered. Well, that is until Elisha prayed and the servant’s eyes were opened to see the fiery army of the Lord protecting them.

“When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.
16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.”

2 Kings 6:15-18

How many times have you felt like you were surrounded by the enemy and you were out numbered?

A few months back, I visited a city in South Africa for a couple of weeks. Unknown to me, the house I was living in was surrounded by witch and wizard covens. Witch doctors in South Africa are known as sangomas. I did not know that the neighborhood was filled with powerful sangomas when I got the house. As the days went on, I noticed that it was customary for the wizards and witches to chant at about 6pm every evening. Hearing these eerie and confusing sounds, I often felt surrounded. I felt alone. Like the enemy was all around me.

One night, there was no sound from the neighboring houses , so I thought it was safe to go out and I decided to get of my house, sit on the porch so that I could watch the stars.  I opened my door and found a large group of witches and wizards outside the compound. They had all sorts of interesting paraphernalia, were smoking and talking in low tones. I was momentarily paralyzed as I watched the scene before me. 

I didn’t know whether to go back inside or to run. So many thoughts started rushing through my mind. Going back inside seemed scary. What if one of the witches had a gun and shot my backside. Running was futile as all escape routes had been blocked.

Out of options, I remembered what the Apostle Paul said in Ephesians:

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” 

Ephesians 6:13

So, I decided to stand outside my door and start praying in the spot I was rooted in. I didn’t pray loudly. Just silent, pleadings to Jesus Christ and his Holy Spirit to shield, protect me and save my life. I kept pleading for the blood of Jesus to cover me so that the enemy would not touch me. As I stood there for about 4 hours, a different witch would walk up to me an instrument, wanting to strike me, then something would happen and it seemed like they would change their mind, walk back to their group, mutter some words to the other members of the group and then walk away. After a few minutes, another witch would also come over and the same thing would happen.

This went on for about four hours until all the witches had walked up to me, instrument in mind, changed their mind and then walked away.

That night, I was physically unarmed and yet I believe that the supernatural clock of the Lord Jesus Christ was covering me and his Holy Spirit was right there beside me protecting me.

Jesus saved my life from the wiles of the enemy and witches. He can do the same for you if you choose to believe in him and his power to save.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ in your life, I urge you to please invite him in your life. In these dark and wicked days, only Jesus can protect us from the devil. If you are on your own, without his covering, you will be an easy prey for the devil.

Jesus is patiently waiting for you to invite him in. Don’t wait for tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to any one. Take this chance and accept him and see how he will change and transform your life.

His word says:

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Revelation 3:20-22

The helmet as part of the full armor of God covers the head. The head contains majority of the neurological system of the human body. It is where the brain along with various neurons are found. It is where the mind, conscious and subconscious reside.

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, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.

Ephesians 6:17-18



Helmet of salvation - Full armor of God
Helmet of salvation – Full armor of God


If for one reason or another a person becomes brain dead though their heart beats, they cannot do much. For example, if a believer is brain dead, they cannot be able to put on their sandals of peace, wield their sword of the spirit, put on their breastplate of righteousness, wear their belt of truth or hold up your shield of faith.



In essence, before you can be able to use any other part of the armor effectively you need salvation. You need to be born again. A believer of Jesus Christ having accepted his gift of salvation.



All humankind has fallen short of the glory of God but Jesus came to offer us salvation and to redeem us from our fallen state.







That is, God’s righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ, to all who believe, since there is no distinction. 23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. 24 They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:22-24



We don’t have to keep living in our sinful, fallen state anymore.
There is redemption for our sins.
Their is salvation.
We can be saved and live if we believe in God’s begotten son Jesus Christ.



If your spiritual armor is to be effective, then you need to put on your helmet of salvation as a priority. Of course every part of the armor is vital as we have seen in this series and each part meshes seamlessly into the other parts.







For example, to receive Salvation, you need Faith. Faith is your shield as part of the armor. So ultimately a believer needs the complete armor to be able to wage against the enemy. Missing a piece of the armor leaves believers vulnerable to the wiles and devices of the enemy.



We are called to be victorious in Jesus Christ.







Jesus Saves!
Jesus is Your Helmet Of Salvation!
Wear him and protect your head and mind!

Belt Of Truth.



Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist. 

Ephesians 6:14


Truth is deeper than just being honest. It means being sincere in your intentions and actions too.Telling the truth also takes Humility.Pride does not flow with Truth.







In human anatomy the area from the waist down is a sensitive area.On the human body, this area includes the reproductive parts, organs, thighs and legs.Any damage to our reproductive system can lead to infertility which ultimately leads to un-productivity.



As believers, we need to be productive. We need to multiple.Whether that multiplication includes talents, skills, wealth, families or any endeavors we find ourselves engaging in.Wearing your belt of truth firmly around your waist, will guard your production and even speed of production.



Don’t allow the enemy to bring famine, drought and hunger into your life through lies, dishonesty, pride and untruthfulness. Truth is life giving and there is life stored in your productive parts.We know the enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy.

"Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness." (Ephesians 6:14) The Apostle Paul compares spiritual armor to the armor of the Roman soldier of this time. He begins by mentioning the truth as our loins girt, what is it? The truth of the word (John 17:17) is our first defensive weapon to destroy every lie of the devil and religion in order to be free from the influence of the thief because every lie you allow in your life gives authority to the father of lies on you. Let the truth set you free in the name of Jesus (John 8: 31-32) #s Wisdom4everyday#wisdomformife#jesuschrist#holyspirit#john#apostle#soldier#truth#lies#beltoftruth#gospel

All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

John 10:8-10


If the enemy destroy’s you through untruthfulness, then he restricts and curtails your productivity and multiplication. We also know that the devil is the father of lies and there is no truth in him.



Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”

John 8:42-47






Therefore, if we are to distinguish ourselves and set ourselves apart as children of the light, then we have to train ourselves and learn to live in truth.It’s very important and imperative to. And when we find ourselves having any difficulties in living truthfully, let’s ask Jesus for help to live in truth like he does because Jesus is the Way, Truth and Life.



Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 14:6


Truth Is Life. Jesus Is Truth.

Especially considering the middle east conflict and the spiritual significance of events going on there.



Everyone in the world is speaking peace but the truth of the matter is that the world and everything in it can not give us peace.
In fact Jesus must have astonished his listeners when he told them that he had not come to bring peace but a sword.



“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’

Matthew 10:34-36






Kind of surprising since he is the Prince of Peace, right? Actually it is not surprising because in another passage Jesus promises to give his followers peace. The kind of peace the world can never give anyone. The kind of peace that cannot be negotiated, bought or sold. Only he as the prince of peace has the ability to give it.



Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27






And he is also that gospel of peace. When we preach Jesus to the world, we are in essence offering them Peace through the the Prince of peace. It is the same with the Beatitudes when Jesus speaks of the peacemakers. If we are peacemakers, we shall not only be blessed but we shall also be called son’s of God. How amazing is that?



Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.

Matthew 5:9

The world is in desperate need of real peace. Let’s therefore put on our sandals of peace: run, sprint, jog, walk to give the world the Prince of Peace.

Shield Of Faith.



In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Ephesians 6:16.


Faith, Jesus once said even the size of a mustard seed can move a mulberry tree and I strongly believe this.



“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed,” the Lord said, “you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

Luke 17:6






Apostle Paul also wrote that without Faith, we cannot please God:



But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Hebrews 11:6


The devil is always throwing darts and arrows at believers. In fact, that is why the verse in Ephesians 6:16 says you need to have your shield of faith in every situation. You can never ever leave your shield of Faith behind. Never! Doesn’t matter what situation of life you find yourself in. Good, bad, sad, happy, sick, healthy, rich, poor.

In every situation, you have to have your shield of Faith.
The devil found Job in a rich, happy state when he started attacking him and he didn’t stop there. He carried on throwing flaming arrows at him even after he had lost everything.



However tough the situation you find yourself in, however dire the circumstances, however tempting to throw your hands in the air and start calling God a liar and feeling like quitting, I urge you, I beseech you to never lose your faith.

Because the moment you lose your Faith in Jesus, you have lost the battle and war. See, it’s Jesus who gives us victory during this war. Yes, we are soldiers but he is the commander in chief. We take directions from him. He leads and we follow.




So, if you lose faith in your commander in chief, you have inadvertently surrendered to the enemy and joined the other camp.
See, in this spiritual battle, there are only two sides.
Good and Evil. God and the Devil. There is no middle ground.







You either have full trust and Faith in Jesus or you don’t have faith in him. There is no gray, murky shady area.



I pray you take your faith seriously. I pray you always have your shield with you. So that when the devil comes with lies, slander, gossip, accusations, sickness, poverty, loss, grief, betrayal etc, you can quench and extinguish all his arrows so that nothing happens to you and you grow stronger in your faith and move from glory to glory.



Let’s Live Victoriously In Jesus. Take Your Shield Of Faith Every Where You Go.

Breastplate of righteousness as part of the full armor of God – Spiritual warfare.



Spiritual Warfare:



The Breast Plate Of Righteousness



What is the importance of the Breastplate of Righteousness as one of the components of the whole armor of God?


The breastplate of righteousness is the part of the full armor of God that guards and protects your heart and soul from dangerous manipulations that the enemy tries to implant.


I’m sure some of you have met situations and people who try to manipulate you by using your emotions to try and make you stumble in your spiritual walk.


Righteousness gives you confidence when the enemy tries to carry out a smear campaign against your character which you know is secured in Jesus Christ.


When you sense the devil tempting you to throw away everything you know about Jesus and to start worrying because things seem to be getting worse instead of better, putting on your breastplate of righteousness is what helps you not to worry. Because you remember that life is about seasons. The seeds of good and righteousness you sow today will reap a plentiful harvest in future.



But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Matthew 6:33-34


So, despite all the manipulations of the enemy to deter you from running your race of Faith, you persevere and hold onto trusting that Jesus knows best. Jesus will always know best.



Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness

Ephesians 6:14

But hope is never lost
Hope is never lost

Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer 
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll, get through this 
Just follow the light in the darkness 
You’re gonna be ok

I know your heart is heavy from those nights
Just remember that you’re a fighter, a fighter
You never know just what tomorrow holds
And you’re stronger than you know
Stronger than you know

Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer 
Put one foot in front of the other

You’ll, get through this 
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

And when the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok
When the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok



Please wear your breastplate of righteousness and let no enemy manipulate you into taking it off.

In our spiritual warfare against the powers of darkness, we have to come against the schemes of the devil and his agents using the word of God. It is therefore important that as a believer you read your Bible, memorize scripture so that you can able to speak the word of God when the enemy tries to tempt you or lead you astray.







The word of God is also very important for encouragement, edification and inspiration. It is daily bread that replenishes our souls, minds, spirits and heart when we grow weary.

The Full Armor Of God For Battle Against Enemies Points To This One Man – Spiritual Warfare.



Unfortunately many people don’t know that we are in a war every second of every day.  Many people are oblivious to the forces battling around them. This is no ordinary war. It’s a ferociously dangerous war for the souls, minds, hearts and spirits of men. 


And it’s a war that has been raging from the dawn of mankind. Some believers erroneously believe they have no enemy. Some who know they have an enemy think the enemy they are fighting is weak.


Well, the enemies we fight are not weak. They are powerful. But as believers in Jesus Christ we take strength and power in the knowledge that Jesus conquered the devil.





Jesus gave us authority over satan and his agents.



And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 

19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 

20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

Luke 10:18-20


But that authority and power is useless if we don’t engage and use it. We have to know who we are in Christ and to take up our rightful places of dominion.



The full armor of God Apostle Paul wrote about in Ephesians 6:10-18 has been the subject of many sermons. And the components of the armor need to be known by every believer. When I personally think of the Armor of God, it points me to one man.



The Man Jesus Christ of Nazareth.



Every piece of Armor speaks of Jesus and his preeminence. So every time I put on my Armor I know I’m wearing Jesus Christ from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet.



Let me illustrate:



Truth like a belt around your waist.


Jesus is the Truth.



Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 14:6


Righteousness like armor on your chest.


Jesus is our Righteousness.



But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became God-given wisdom for us — our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption

1 Corinthians 1:30






Feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace.


Jesus is the Prince of Peace.



For a child will be born for us, a son will be given to us, and the government will be on His shoulders. He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6


Shield of faith.


Jesus the source and perfecter of our faith.



Keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.

Hebrews 12:2


Helmet of salvation.


Jesus our Salvation.



After He was perfected, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him, 10 and He was declared by God a high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 5:9-10


Sword of the Spirit, which is God’s word.


Jesus the Word.



The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14






Finally, be strengthened by the Lord and by His vast strength. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the tactics of the Devil.  12 For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.  13 This is why you must take up the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist in the evil day,  and having prepared everything, to take your stand. 14 Stand, therefore, with truth like a belt around your waist, righteousness like armor on your chest, 15 and your feet sandaled with readiness for the gospel of peace. 16 In every situation take the shield of faith, and with it you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is God’s word. 18 Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the saints.

Ephesians 6:10-18


Take Up Your Armor and Let Us Rush Into Battle Certain Of Victory In Jesus’s Name.



Elijah
