Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you!

In Ephesians 6:10-20 NKJV says...

My Brethren, be strong in the LORD and in the power of HIS might. 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 darkenss of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness 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. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD of GOD; praying always with all supplication in the SPIRIT, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

The next armor piece is Righteousness which is the state of being right with GOD; justification; the work of CHRIST, which is the ground of justification. Psalm 119:40 says, Behold, I long for YOUR precepts; Revive me in YOUR righteousness. Psalm 23:3 (Amplified Bible) says, HE refreshes and restores my life (my self); HE leads me in the paths of righteousness (uprightness and right standing with HIM--not for my earning it, but for HIS name's sake.) Righteousness means being just, fair, and morally upright. We all should walk in righteousness, not because we have to for being bound by law, but because we love GOD, we will want to walk morally, just and fair. Where do we find out how to walk morally? It is in HIS WORD!
When the world is calling for us to act according to the flesh and sinful ways, we know that if we heed Apostle Pauls warning to put on Righteousness we will not easily be fooled by the enemie's scheme's and plan's.

The third armor piece "Gospel of Peace" will be in part three of this article.

GOD Bless you!
