The Equipment For The ConflictEphesians 6:13-17

Vs. 14 – We now come to the body equipment:

“Stand” aorist active imperative of histēmi– to stand fast; to hold your ground.

May not even understand the source of the

attack – but you can stand fast & resist the

attack, regardless of its duration or

intensity – PROVIDED THAT YOU

UTILIZE THE GRACE EQUIPMENT OF

THE ARMOR.

The Equipment For The ConflictEphesians 6:13-17

Now have a series of aorist participles in verses 14-17.

Action of the aorist participle precedes the action of the main verb.

Main verb is “stand” in verse 14 & refers to the heat of the battle.

The participles specify the preparations which precede the combat – until the Christian Warrior reaches spiritual maturity, they are in constant training.

Even when Christian soldiers have reached maturity (Super-Grace – James 4:6) they must strive continually to perfect their initial training until they are proficient in every branch of the art of spiritual warfare.

Then, they must constantly train to

maintain that proficiency.

Christian Warriors can NEVER afford to lower their guard – EVER!

For your training, God has provided a drill instructor – your Pastor-Teacher! (Ephesians 4:11, 12)

He loves you, & cares for you, & protects you! He wants the best for you!

A coach (drill instructor) is someone who makes you do what you don’t want to do so you can be what you want to be! Tom Landry – head coach of the Dallas Cowboys (1960-1988).

Girded with truth –

Eph. 6:14

Belt of Truth

Practical Military Purpose

This was a very important piece to the Roman Soldier's armor. The Roman soldier put around his waist a very wide belt which was the holder for a lot of equipment. There was a loop, for example, for the different swords. Other loops held ropes and a rations sack. When the legions conquered a city, the soldiers would empty out the ration sack to make room for gold, jewelry, and other loot they picked up. There were loops on the belt for darts. The belt was tied in several places to stay in place, so that no matter how the soldier moved about, fell down, climbed hills, etc., the belt was always in place with weapons at the ready. If the belt were not on straight, then everything would be out of place for the soldier. This would cut down his efficiency in battle and may even cost him his life.

Vs. 14 –

“having girded” (“gird” – to encircle or bind with a belt or band; to surround; enclose; hem in; to prepare oneself for action).

Aorist middle participle of perizōnnumi(peri – around & zōnnumi– to put on)

Garments were worn ungirded about the house – girding denotes preparation for activity.

slide8

Verse 14 – “after having buckled around your waist”

Cf. I Peter 1:13 – “gird up” – aorist middle participle of anazōnnumi.

“mind” dianoia– a thinking; a meditation; deep thought; the exercise of thinking.

“sober” – present active participle of nēphō– not intoxicated; well-balanced; self-controlled; stabilized.

“hope” – aorist active imperative of elpizō– confidence; expectation

slide9

Ephesians 6:14 – “with (“by means of”) truth”

“Truth” is a synonym for Bible doctrine.

Signifies the means by which we reach our spiritual objective.

The “belt of truth” comprises the entire realm of doctrine – all its truths; all its categories – as it is assimilated by the daily function of the intake of the Word of God.

If the believer wants to attain the high ground of the super-grace status of maturity, they must take up the challenge to expose themselves to the Word of God on a consistent & daily basis – no matter what distractions or temptations would keep them from it.

slide10

“having put on” – aorist middle participle of enduō - to put on.

Breastplate of Righteousness –

Eph. 6:14

Thōrax– covered both chest & back

Dikaiosunē - Rightousness

+R = God’s Rightousness

-R = Human Rightousness (Isaiah 64:6)

slide11

Breastplate of Righteousness –

Eph. 6:14

Not overt righteousness, but righteousness in the sense of fulfillment of the Divine Standards

It is a way of life in the soul

It is totally divorced from self-righteousness – It is the product of the Word of God resident in the soul

slide12

Breastplate of Righteousness –

Eph. 6:14

Dikaiosunē type righteousness is

entirely dependent on the accumulation

of the Word of God in the soul

Overtly, it is manifest –

In thoughtfulness of others

In a Relaxed Mental Attitude of live & let live

In recognition & respect of the freedom & privacy of others

It is a nobility of soul that matches our noble station

slide13

Ephesians 6:15 –

Feet shod with the Gospel of peace

The Roman soldiers footgear was known as caligae

Hobnail-studded leather soles 1/2 inch thick

Strips of cloth or fur used as a lining

Gospel of peace

5 summer hours

slide15

Ephesians 6:15 –

Feet shod with the

Gospel of peace

“shod” – aorist middle participle of hupodeō(hupo– under & deō– to bind) – to bind beneath; to put on footwear.

In Scripture feet are synonymous with service.

It is the seasoned combat veteran; the spiritually mature Christian Warrior who can serve the Lord to the maximum of their capability & capacity.

The wearing of spiritual combat boots indicates readiness to serve our Supreme Commander wherever & whenever He directs.
