Teresa, you are graced as a gift to be the reaper of the harvest I created you to be (The meaning of my name, “Teresa Ann”).
Daughter, “The Armor of God” is so much more than just “pieces” to put on; it’s a description of Who I Am. I Am The One you get to step into as I Am in you and you are in Me.
It’s another picture, like the one I painted as recorded in John 15 about “abiding”. “Abide in Me and I in you”, as I further explained with the natural things of this earth, “I Am the vine and you are the branches”.
My Spirit showed Paul another unique way to describe what “abiding” in Me also looks like. It was another countless way to describe this as those dear believers needed to see and hear it differently. Same message just told in a different way.
Daughter! Listen! When you read Ephesians 6, don’t just read it from your perspective. Read it and pause as you hear Me teaching you. Realize this…I Am Your Armor. I Am The Armor and what Paul described is to cause to you realize how near I Am. It is beyond your mere terms of language.
Let me show you how close I am. As I Am The Great I Am.
Submitting to God is how you put on the awareness that I Am your Armor and Protection. Submitting to the Father GOD is the action of what resisting the enemy really looks like.
Here is the epidemic: many are trying to resist the enemy at great fail because of boasting in what they are fighting against. That is nothing to be proud of or boast in. This is not My Kingdom way. To truly resist is to submit to Me.
Again, please heed what I Am saying to you: submitting is HOW to resist. I want to teach you constantly how to submit to Me. If you don’t learn, then you will submit to the flesh. That kind of submission is your resistance to Me.
In that knowing, I have given you the ability to quickly repent and get back into the awareness of Who I Am. When you submit to Me, this is how you hide in Me, as recorded in Psalm 91. Psalm 91 is Who I am. I make it simple and plain yet incredibly profound.
Teresa, don’t you know that I have you covered from head to toe? Again, your partnership with Me is to “put on the awareness” that I Am your Armor and Protection.
I Am the Belt of Truth. Imagine Me holding you so close as My arms wrap around you with Who I Am as I help you to properly stand as your core strength is where great balance comes in. I being Truth is so crucial so that when you are feeling opposition and push from the lies of fear, and false expectations; I Am Your Belt of Truth so you can stand in Me as I Am Your Righteousness which guards your heart to not fall prey to your own self righteous, unrighteous ways.
Daughter, as you stand; you stand in Me as I prepare You with The Good news of Peace so that you are FULLY prepared.
With all that, you will be able to hold up that Shield of Faith as you know that I Am your front and rear guard to stop the fiery arrows of the enemy.
Don’t you know? I have given you My mind.
So use it.
Think how I think.
Let my mind overwhelm yours with how I see and think as I Am Your Helmet of Salvation.
I save you from the blunt blows of the lies that would attempt to destroy you and others.
You also get to take Me, The Sword of The Spirit as I Am The Word of God made flesh; I was and am and forever will be the first to speak the Word out loud so the enemy could be reminded that I Am as I declared, “It is Written…” you get to do the same as you follow and echo Me.
And in Me, you realize how praying in my Spirit at ALL times and on every occasion is another weapon that causes you to stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for believers everywhere.
Yield to Me daughter. I Am your Strength, and in Me is where Joy stirs.
You cannot nor do you have the ability to lose Joy, or else that would be saying that you lost Me. Don’t let your feelings say you lost something that is always with You. I Am Joy. I Am Love. I Am Grace. I Am. I Am.
Remember this, your partnership with Me is awareness. Be aware that I Am Who I say that I Am. I Am nearer than near.”
