CONTEMPLATION: EPHESIANS 6: 10 – 18. THE ARMOUR OF GOD
How do we hear and understand this Michaelic message from Paul ?
Is it s a battle cry ? A call to arms ?
Paul calls us to ‘armour up,’ to put on protection. Not protection like chain mail, protection as a chrysalis.
During its stage of complete transformation, the delicate and fragile chrysalis is the outer layer necessary to protect the work of becoming within, so a butterfly can emerge.
The armour of God for us is the same. Spiritual attack from outside calls for total transformation within.
We are protected when we put on the breastplate of the higher life so we may spread the angels message of peace. Christ’s presence elevates our heart’s vision to beyond the realm of thrust and parry. This armour is our strength and protection as we stand in the face of adversity. We must be strong enough to see the adversary, all the while having the courage to be touched not injured, moved not overbalanced, enthused not enraged.
This armour of God protects our inmost being as we learn to respond in new ways, informed by the light of spirit vision.
Truth, faith, spirit strength are the weaponry of peace.
With these we stand at peace with the world, with Him who is the light on the way to our becoming.
With Him who is the meaning of the earth.
With warmest Michaelic greetings
