The Fight Pt. 5: The Helmet of Salvation - Audio

Hope Fellowship Church Jul 14 – 20, 2019 ========== The Fight Part 5: The Helmet of Salvation We find ourselves almost daily in some kind of fight. This fight can involve our relationships, our physical health, our profession, or our emotional wellbeing. Regardless of our physical circumstances, we must engage spiritually if we are to be victorious. God provides us with the protective armor we need for the fight of our lives. ========== Ephesians 6:10-18 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, “Why would the Holy Spirit compare a piece of weaponry like this to salvation? Because your salvation is the most gorgeous, most intricate, most elaborate, most ornate gift God ever gave to you!” - Denis Renner The helmet of salvation designates and declares our position in Christ. It protects us against discouragement. One of Satan’s most effective weapons against us is discouragement. We are called to adorn ourselves with perspective, with knowledge, and with truth. Psalms 55:1-7 Give ear to my prayer, O God, and hide not yourself from my plea for mercy! Attend to me, and answer me; I am restless in my complaint and I moan, because of the noise of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked. For they drop trouble upon me, and in anger they bear a grudge against me. My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me. And I say, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest; yes, I would wander far away; I would lodge in the wilderness; Selah Psalms 55:8-11 I would hurry to find a shelter from the raging wind and tempest." Destroy, O Lord, divide their tongues; for I see violence and strife in the city. Day and night they go around it on its walls, and iniquity and trouble are within it; ruin is in its midst; oppression and fraud do not depart from its marketplace. Psalms 55:12-15 For it is not an enemy who taunts me— then I could bear it; it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me— then I could hide from him. But it is you, a man, my equal, my companion, my familiar friend. We used to take sweet counsel together; within God's house we walked in the throng. Let death steal over them; let them go down to Sheol alive; for evil is in their dwelling place and in their heart. Psalms 55:16-21 But I call to God, and the Lord will save me. Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he hears my voice. He redeems my soul in safety from the battle that I wage, for many are arrayed against me. God will give ear and humble them, he who is enthroned from of old, Selah because they do not change and do not fear God. My companion stretched out his hand against his friends; he violated his covenant. His speech was smooth as butter, yet war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, yet they were drawn swords. Psalms 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit t

The Fight Pt. 4: The Shield of Faith - Audio

Hope Fellowship Church Jul 7 – 13, 2019 ========== The Fight Part 4: The Shield of Faith We find ourselves almost daily in some kind of fight. This fight can involve our relationships, our physical health, our profession, or our emotional wellbeing. Regardless of our physical circumstances, we must engage spiritually if we are to be victorious. God provides us with the protective armor we need for the fight of our lives. ========== Ephesians 6:10-17 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 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. 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. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Are you ready to fight? • As the church, we must allow Scripture to be the leading factor in how we view spiritual warfare and how we are to fight. Ephesians 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. Passive Faith vs. Active (Fighting Faith) • If God is working (fighting), why do I need to? •Promised Land Failure 1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. “Whenever you do something that matters, there will be a battle. You will always face opposition. I tell myself all the time, If I’m not ready to face opposition for my obedience to God, I’m not ready to be used by God.” – Craig Roeschel 1 Timothy 6:11-12 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Ephesians 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. Shield of Faith The Roman scutum was a large shield that was typically 2 feet wide and 4 feet tall. It’s shape and consistency gave it the ability to withstand hard hitting strokes of a sword and deflects arrows. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Examples of Faith and Divine Protection • Passover • Daniel “Take up your shield of faith” It’s to appropriate the promises of God from the gospel in our everyday lives while having confidence that he will protect us in the midst of battle. “to extinguish the flaming arrows of the enemy” • Flaming arrows used against the Roman armies were called plumbata. Satan’s primary objective, to defeat you, is to distract you. Question? What is it that is distracting you from stepping out in faith with confidence in God’s ability to see you through? James 2:20, James 2:26 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

This fight can involve our relationships, our physical health, our profession, or our emotional wellbeing. Regardless of our physical circumstances, we must engage spiritually if we are to be victorious. God provides us with the protective armor we need for the fight of our lives. ========== Ephesians 6:10-15 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. Big Ideas regarding Peace: • A Peace that is firmly founded in Christ and the Gospel. • A Peace in our relationships, specifically those in the Gospel community. • A Peace that is dependent on our growth in Christ. • A Peace that resides internally before it materializes externally. 1. Peace within our relationships and specifically within the Gospel Community Ephesians 2:14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility Peace is not only found in Christ, but He is the peace that has broken down every wall. Ephesians 2:15-17 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near. Ephesians 2:18-22 For through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit. 2. Peace in our relationships is directly dependent on our growth in Christ. Colossians 3:5-10 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Paul’s method of our growth in Christ is taking off the old and putting on the new. Colossians 3:11-14 Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Holiness defined - We face inward conflict (war between the spirit and flesh) and outward conflict (relationships). • How do we respond to troubled relationships? “Bearing with one another” • How do we deal wit
