Oh that the modern church would have open ears to hear what was written to the Israelites.
The Israelites were addressed as the Church.
They were called OUT OF EGYPT.
They are the CALLED OUT ONES.
We who believe and therefore HEAR AND DO- SHEMA- the WRITTEN WORD of YHWH our CREATOR are the ones who are the Church.
The Israelites were used to the ways of the Egyptians that they were surrounded by. Once they were called out of Egypt they thought to use the Egyptian ways to honor YHWH.
But, Moses corrected them.
Stephen referenced this in the book of Acts.
It made YHWH angry that His people would think to use ways other than the ways He gave to worship Him.
Egypt represents the world's ways. Believers are not to use worldly ways to worship YHWH. Worldly ways are not holy.
YHWH's ways are holy.
Thinking about the Armor...the PRIESTLY ATTIRE is the ARMOR WE ARE TO BE CLOTHED IN.
Yet the modern church thinks the WORD of YHWH is depicting the Roman armor as that which to wear.
So much ROMANIZATION has come into the church and hence the Father's ways aren't being following whether through arrogance or neglect.
The prophet Daniel spoke of the fourth empire changing YHWH's calendar and days.
This we have seen. It is through the Roman empire that His true and good ways have sought to be disdained and not known.
How pathetically the church has arraigned themselves with Roman attire and Roman ways and have thought in so doing they were honoring the Creator of Holiness.
The One Who Is set apart does not accept Roman garb. He accepts only those clothed in His robes.
He has called us to be a royal priesthood clothed in the garments of such and nothing less.
Ephesians and Deuteronomy speak
of the Armor He desires us to wear.
Read the Scripture with this understanding of the true Armor. Understand the lyrics. It is not glorifying Roman armor. It is to the Holy One Who gives the Righteous armor.
Put on HIS ARMOR!
Do not think He is clothed with mere man's armor. No.
Be Strong in YHWH! Put on the full armor of Elohim! Take your stand against the enemy’s schemes.
Be Strong in YHWH! Put on the full armor of Elohim! Our struggle is not with flesh and blood, but
against rulers, authorities, powers of this dark world, against spiritual forces of evil in heavenly realms.
Put on the full armor of Elohim! So that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your
ground and after you have done everything, to stand!
The Belt of TRUTH buckled around your waist,
The Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS in place,
your feet fitted with readiness that comes from
the Gospel of Peace!
Take up the Shield of FAITH
to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one!
Take the Helmet of
and the Sword of the SPIRIT
which is the WORD of YHWH.
Be Strong in YHWH!
Put on the full armor of Elohim!
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions!
And keep praying for all the saints.
Be Strong in YHWH and in the power of His Might!
***Be Strong in YHWH and in the power of HIS MIGHT!
Be Strong in YHWH! **Put on *the full Armor of Elohim!!
This is the Armor of the Royal Priesthood,
The Peculiar People! That is us!
