CHORUS:
Vestíos de toda la armadura de Dios,
para poder estar firmes
contra las engaños del diablo
Vestíos de toda la armadura de Dios,
la armadura de Dios

Ceñidos de verdad
la cota de justicia
los pies ... del evangelio de paz
el escudo de fe
el casco de salvación
(y) la espada del Espíritu

FIR-MES!
Ceñidos vuestros lomos de verdad
FIR-MES!
y vestidos de la cota de justicia
Y calzados los pies con_el EVangelio de paz;
SOBRE TODO
tomando el escudo de fe,
para apagar los dardos (de fuego ) del maligno (libre de la flechas encendidas del maligno)
tomad el casco de salvación,
y la espada del Espíritu; que es la palabra de Dios;

Porque no estamos luchando contra sangre y carne;
sino contra poderes, potestades,
gobernadores de las tinieblas (del mundo)
contra malicias espirituales de los cielos (del cielo)

Why Troy&Genie made this educational song "Armor Of God (Eph 6:10-17)" for YOU

For 8 years, we puzzled over how to fulfill the many requests to write the "Armor Of God" verse in song... a massive challenge; this is the only song that includes the full text, 'cause it's near-impossible to set Eph 6 to music... but, here it is!

(we wrestle)

(but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, )
(against spiritual wickedness in high [places].)

Eph. 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (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.)

NAB For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.

Be strong in the lord [Yahshua, YHVH] and in his mighty power and
(CHORUS up 1 step)
----------------
Eph. 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. (Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.)

Eph. 6:11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. (Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.)

Eph. 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (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].)

Eph. 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. (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.)

Eph. 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, (Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;)

Eph. 6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. (And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;)

Eph. 6:16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. (Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.)

Eph. 6:17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:)

------------
There's no armor for your backside!
You weren't meant to be found running from the enemy!
Attack!

------------
The real war is the flesh against the spirit
we have assurance of total committment of victory as we put our trust in our commander in chief Jesus christ our lord
You must be born again by the spirit
mind of the spirit, or a mind controlled by the spirit
the flesh and the spirit are fighting against each other for control over my life
the mind of the flesh is death, the mind of the spirit is life, joy peace
satan wants to get us into the flesh
we don't recognize the source of the attack
somebody will aggravate you and you want to respond in the flesh- but stay in the spirit
Stay in the spirit and you can have the victory
if he can get you into the flesh he can wipe the floor with you
If you stay in the realm of the spirit Satan is no match for Jesus / God
It is a spiritual battle and for that spiritual battle God has given us spiritual weapons
our weapons are not carnal
The sword of the spirit is the word of god
Jesus used that in every temptation - he said, "it is written..."
Sharper than a switchblade knife
more powerful than a ten ton tank
We don't need an army for protection
we don't need bodyguards
God is our protector
No weapon formed against us can prosper
It is a battle but we don't need to fear
We follow our leader into victory in every battle
We live a victorious Christian life every day
Don't let Satan draw you into the flesh

There is no condemnation now for those who are in Christ Jesus
Satan is the terrorist
There is a war but it's not against any nation or man
Rom 13 its high time to wake up ... take off the ... of darkness, put on the armor of light
be a good soldier of Jesus Christ
Fight the good fight of faith
the gates of hell will not prevail against us
we don't want to be spiritual casualties, don't want to lose ground

not just some of the armor - put every peice on- every piece is important and interconnected
breastplate is a bulletproof vest - bulletproof breastplate
Belt holds everything together - keeps your pants on
If the belt of truth comes undone, the rest of the armor falls apart

David threw off the King's armor - said he didn't need it - God would protect him

this armor will quench the fiery darts of the enemy
weapons are not of this world
Paul says: "to timorthy endure hardness as a good soldier of Jesus Christ- no man who wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life so he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier

special issue heavenly equipment - nothing can penetrate it- the Breastplate covers your heart- your feelings, emotions, desires, will

submit yourself to god, and the devil will flee from you draw near to him

be sober, be vigilant, for your adversary the devil is roaring about like a lion

Put on the lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh
