Quench The Fiery Darts

Set it all ablaze.

above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

— Ephesians 6:16 NKJV


You and I can fight if we make sure we put on the proper gear to withstand the enemies attacks.  We can not be exposed to the enemy.  We must take the time to put on the whole armor of the Lord.  To protect sekf, we must have faith in God, trusting that we are in the right space in time with who we are in resoect to Kingdom living.

The enemy has taken out some strong saints.  There are people who you would think could not be compromised, but the enemy had something on them, that they folded their faith into a ball and threw it away.  I am a witness to this statement, because of what I have personally witnessed in my life, with a close and dear friend. Strong talk is not enough.  We must have the where with all to back up our faith statements.  We shouldnt stand on our own principles, because we have issues in the flesh that we have to keep covered under the blood. When we go out to fight the enemy, he can expose our weaknesses.  So we should never be naked without the sheild of faith to cover us when the feiry darts come our direction.  A feiry dart, is attacks that stick deep into the core of what they are focused on, and they burn itto your soul.  If we are not careful, these feiry darts can hit our core belief and cause us to back away in pain.  This is why we do not need to have exposed flesh in the battle of faith.  The enemy can be extreme when he wants to gouge at you deep.  He uses those closest to you to hurt your core values.  Those who know yoir idiosyncrasies,  those who know the secret you behind closed doors.  The enemy is hot on the trail of those who stand against his process of illumination.   He works on those who have a world changers view.  Those who affect the community with their services.  Those who serve in the hospitals in a Spiritual aspect.  Those who fight poverty and disease.   The enemy will not allow you to be an anchor for another brother to begin to stand firm on.  It is hard to fight what you dont see coming.  Those closest to you, you are not expecting to attack you on your views, mostly because they are supposed to have those same views.  It is hard to have my children stand on the other side of the isle and hear their views that I might think are unfounded and not researched properly.  We cannot expect our loved ones to have the same view as we do in accordance to the Scripture.  The world is a strong adversary.  The sheild of faith is the Word of God in action for us all.  We stand firm on principles that are derived from belief in what the Lord has said.  Faith is a tool that can be used in defense of all naysayers and those who oppose esoecially on Biblical terms.  If you are going to stand at odds with the world view, why not stand on the firm foundation of what is truth.  The Word of the Lord is truth.  It takes faith to use it properly.  Without faith, none can please the Lord.
