You will will Dr. Tony Evans is your only hope to double this pursuit up with God all you must learn to dress for success. This is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans on speaker Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative driven to said spiritual temptation in opposition can't be avoided, but they can be overcome today hotel is about the biblical survival gear that helps us attack our problems at the real root.

Let's join him. God you angels situation that you're facing right now is not your problem is only that you may not have an you and have been fighting people when we all been fighting angels all this concern in Ephesians chapter 6 that we understand the tools of authority.

He wants to get us back to the sauce. He wants us to understand what is the call of our greatest dilemma greatest issue and greatest problem speak you wrestle not against flesh and blood.

You wrestle against the principalities and the power that it you can use tools you must view the murder of God. We fight enemy spraying sauce in our earthly room not 14. Therefore, having your loins with truth.

The truth in Jesus tomorrow morning. You don't have to wait that long ago dropped to the Roman soldier had this long to make that flow down to the ground, but when it came time to find he couldn't really know what that thing he would talk thing up underneath his belt so he would have mobility the belt have loops on it which would carry a sword. For example, which would carry some clips so he could connect his breastplate into it.

It was little piece because everything else can do with everything else hung on his belly could wear breastplate shipping inevitability could carry a sword should have his belly could hold everything together to stand firm hold on God's ground that Satan is trying to take from you is trying to take your joy is trying to take your family. She's trying to take you meaning she's trying to take you purposely try to take your future if you try to take it like he's trying to take that for God that if you just get draft Christian life.

He will stop anymore with me. The first thing you have on Asia belt second beat Obama, having put on the breastplate of righteousness. Now, what are the breastplate cover covered your chest into the belt and it covered the Chester start with truth and you move to the heart. The Bible says set your mind on things above, when Christ is first Corinthians 521 says that Christ is our righteousness, get dressed up in Christ to put on the breastplate of righteousness means to commit yourself to a holy life, righteousness predicated on "rotation of righteousness that you receive when you receive Christ. When I think most Christians don't know what happened when I got saved.

Most Christians only know the game I sent no F not only happen so when you got saved you here today and you know Jesus Christ as your personal savior. Things happen you will send, but he gave you his righteousness as called patient that is account righteousness that belongs to Jeff going to be righteous today. Back to human effort, righteous today what actions Christ is not action Christ with Christ all you know the law and clean in Christ, and Christ will love it.

I'm not just what you trying to chapter 3 Act like we had. We all week Eagles hang around with turkeys and because we know that we will also get up and I hate standard governs my life based on your thank you. I am righteousness like what I get up and put on your breastplate, because if you don't you will have an environment where demons can foster demons can always foster an environment of unrighteousness that is their environment. So if you're in an environment of unrighteousness. They can foster that's why the Bible says grieve not the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit can keep the demons from fostering in this arena because he can apply and have applied for the righteousness of Christ. Anything that God doesn't want you to have only because it is not good for you teenagers anything that God says don't do it because he doesn't want to have fun speak of that particular thing about the which is why the Bible says will the Lord loveth he disciplines don't do this don't do that all good so dress up in the morning with the righteousness of Christ. Lord I thank you that you have already made me righteous, let me live up to what I already… We don't do this today and we don't do that today but like you've already give me victory over this already. Give me victory over that you just dressed up with Christ. The gospel of peace. Notice what he says. He says in verse 15, having already shot your feet with the preparation of the gospel which is base gospel of peace know the Bible says. The Bible says Jesus is our peace. Ephesians 214. Christ is our peace, get dressed up in Jesus again.

Christ is our peace, Roman soldier wore shoes with clicks on why sure footed mess.

That's why sure footed mess was being able to move about to march forward without slip and slide some of the byline slip and slide the James Browning slip and slide time is always level again and again with clicks on the bottom of shoes. We have sure mess that's remained BiPAP in your shoes with the gospel of peace when you're on righteousness of God, will guard your hearts and will be out here there is the peace with God and the peace of God. Many of us want the people of God do like the feeling of peace before we understood the peace with God. Peace with God mean that God is now on your side swimming when you're not a Christian, God is not on your side on your side of Christ is on your side.

But when you please.

With that when you get up in the morning and say thank you God stop in front of me. You all when it happens, the peace of God that feeling of peace you want will begin the takeover because you started with the understanding that today as you go this week that you face and you will think these wicked family members basis would get a job that God is all only the popular drink that Joseph is all Dr. Evans will have more tools God gives us for our spiritual defense, and triumph. When returns are just a moment but first I want to let you know that today's lesson is part of Tony's 12 message audio series called spiritual warfare.

Tony happens to finally next walk around the shield shield shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the deep one half bath on having a huge think it would even come upon the body of the folders would line up body to body and it will all be covered so broad that it cover the whole group of why must you take it. The other three.

You must dress up in everyday all the but this when you pick up educated. What is been the thing that you're picking up the things the protective everything Satan ever going for a latch is acting on the truth that you said you believe leaving the belt of truth, acclamation needed best shield of faith, the shield of faith is when you take the truth that you demand on Sunday and you walked out on Monday and no adjustment for the battle of Jericho got notice of the heavy enemy out here but I tell you what I want to walk around this thing you want to date seven.

Table 71 around seven times got that and I'm thinking about.

I will fight the battle for you that I would make sense absolutely to couple things about what grounds will look like a fool one if it's embarrassing sometimes to do it God's way downright embarrassed to be in Paris. Are you looking like a fool's name and type only if you want to clean the leprosy goal dip in the Jordan River 730 over that you want me to go Put it on me. All the soldiers watching meet and get seven barracks and sometimes what God says when God will protect you with his downright embarrassed danger can imagine what went well Jericho with the Army of Jericho looking down dangerous dangerous to do that and sometimes just difficult but you said one American miracle you can only get a miracle if you on the truth is that you believe everything all the time and I think that for God. The Bible is sometimes the best but with the Florida bar. Nothing but emerald with five Satan wants to shoot fiery darts at us with 345 think the time knowing if we focus on one against one another. Another happy days like that you all over the place much job publishing. So what you know God will be out there with the goals of the arrow with black ongoing all God's will, maybe get one thing. But you have 20 think that you will block the other 19 angels of God will come up and down Jesus Christ, where he last. Next, the helmet almost from the helmet of salvation with the body of Alzheimer's. Why because you lose your mind. Your mind no longer works and what happens when you lose your ability to process thoughts you lose your ability to live life see when the mind goes, everything else goes football players where they helmet in order to absorb the shock of the blows on the helmet of salvation.


When you update your position in Christ. Simply take the circumstance of we got only Christian well with me. This is behind you doing not good in Christ become my salvation. Because of this problem is not circumstances. From my but not from circumstantial become.become God can't be God's will put on you know what I'm blessed to hear about open, I'm saying the helmet of salvation is something that can absorb the blow helmets as well. Thank you. You mess with me right now with everything about my position in Christ opposition cry for that I can handle this.

My position in Christ that I can do all things to Christ who strengthens makes my position in Christ said that you 24, 25 to him who is able to keep me from falling. Opposition cry for 20 289 figure even though I don't everything we see Jesus is as we see Jesus begin to focus on Jesus Christ what you doing to make people like you wanted a neighborhood, pick up my helmet thought what you thought happy right now.

The nurse can't get no monarchs my helmet and absorb the school react to the helmet said that you have self-control patients helmets as you have an helmet.

Finally, word of God and take the helmet of salvation and the thought of the spirit which is the word of God is not a solid sword and dagger sort this thing about 10 inches long. You like point shot on both sides in the country coming and going where God is sharper than any two-edged sword, Hebrews 412 says it is God. It will slice the enemy refers to the body of God's truth.

The Scriptures refers to the use of the dagger want deal with the body. The other deal with it its use. Many of us walked the church every Sunday with the Bible we just never get around to using the Bible that we carry. You can own a Bible factory and never become a sword, you can have Bible sit on the coffee table on your mantelpiece by your bed and it never becomes a sword and it never cuts the devil and half this is the word lame.

It has to do with that which is the player. Satan tried to attack Jesus and Jesus said man shall not live by word of love.

Moses saw that it was the word of God opened up the red sea listen to me. Jesus did not travel alone. My back, good conversation with the devil that have you read any of written the Bible by word about somebody. "Like God defeated the word of God. God God word you hear preached you Dr. 2011 presenting God's provision for spiritual victory in our lives, and he'll be back in a moment with the final question and challenge for each of us first so I wanted to alert you that this is the final week you'll be able to stream Tony's feature-length film journey with Jesus with Easter still fresh in our minds.
