Armor of God: How to Put on the Spiritual Gadgets

Armor of God is a set of spiritual gadgets you put on to overcome the battle from the devil and his demonic forces. Many people do not want to experience any form of battle. They are pleased to accept Jesus Christ into their life as the Prince of Peace. But, it is written that every Christian must fight the devil.

This post will reveal the right spiritual gadgets to put on, and how to possess the armor of God for a permanent victory.

Ephesians chapter 6 verses 11 and 12 say: “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

You need the armor of God to defeat the devil. And your peace would be sustained from earth into eternity. Is it true that you have a battle to fight?

Revelation chapter 12 verse 17 say: “And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”

There is no need to be afraid of the spiritual battle. Listen to the consolation of Jesus Christ to His followers: “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

Christians without the armor of God cannot enjoy the victory of the Lord. Such Christian suffers fiery battle that leads to lukewarm, depression, life threatening experience and so on.

What is the Armor of God?

Our God is not a magician and He respect His Word so much. He promised us peace and victory, but we have to abide by the rules related to spiritual warfare.

The best way to enjoy victory involves the use of all the following armor of God:


1. Belt of Truth

Always tell the truth in all circumstances. The attitude of righteousness would firmly hold your spiritual stand. You won’t fall when the enemies attempt to pull you down. If you put on this armor of God, then it would be impossible for the devil to lure you into a lukewarm lifestyle.

2. Shoe of Evangelism

Evangelism is the spread of the Good News. Jesus changed the practice of spending more time in the church services to spending more time in the public preaching.

Mark chapter 16 verse 15 says: “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’”

No spiritual traps can capture your feet when you share the Good News of Jesus to the people. Shoe of evangelism is an armor of God that you must put on every day.

3. Shield of Faith

Use the power of choice given to you by the Lord to believe in the Power of Jesus only. Christians that do not solely believe in the power of Jesus run after magic and materialism of false pastors/prophets. Use this armor of God (faith) to shield yourself.

It’s no more news that Satan is attacking the true children of God. But, when he throws his fiery arrows at you, use the Word of Faith to shield yourself. Your heart is a strong battle field. Thus, when the devil speaks some words of discouragement to you, reply him with the faithful word of God. So, reading the Bible daily with all seriousness is essential.

4. Helmet of Salvation

If you always put this armor of God on your head, then it will remind you of the power in the Blood of Jesus. And your consciousness in the salvation of Jesus will refresh you with His anointing. This would make it impossible for the devil to behead you spiritually.

The helmet of salvation will fit and secure your spiritual head when you renounce all forms of idolatry and debaucheries of this world.

Note: Your spiritual head is the powerhouse that controls your existence (including thoughts and decisions). If the head is exposed without a helmet, then easy access of the spiritual bullets is unavoidable.

5. Sword of Word

This armor of God is very powerful, because it is the only offensive spiritual weapon you can use to defeat your enemies. The spiritual sword is the Word of God. Whenever the enemies draw a battle line, don’t sit down to cry! But, recite the promises of God in the Bible. Speak the Authority of the Lord in the Bible (Jesus did the same when Satan attacked Him- Matthew chapter 4)

You cannot be defeated by the attacks of the devil, if you always reply him with the Word of God.


Jesus says: “All who are victorious will be clothed in white. I will never erase their names from the Book of Life…” (Rev 3:5)

A victor is someone who defeated a war. So, do not be scared of spiritual war. Always put on the four defensive armor of God; belt of truth, shoe of evangelism, shield of faith and the helmet of salvation. And, always use the offensive armor of God-sword of Word to strike your enemies. Remember, you are not fighting against human, but against the devil and his soldiers.
