STUDY GUIDE, EPHESIANS 6:10-16, continued, 24.07.19

    1. What is meant by the “shield of faith”?
    2. How does faith create, or form, a protective shield?
    3.  What is your understanding of the fiery darts/arrows of the devil? On what occasions can you cite examples of fiery arrows of the devil’s which have experienced coming against you? Recall a specific situation? What was your awareness level.
    4. In retrospect, how might they have been averted if your protective shield was tightly in place? In what ways can your awareness grow in regards to preventing these fiery darts/arrows? How can your shield of faith become more effective? (Ref. Romans 13, Colossians 3 passages).            
    5. What is your helmet?
    6. What is your SWORD?  (Ref. Heb.4:12).
    7. What are the “all strategies of the devil& how will that armour enable you “to stand firm against” his wiles?
    8. Connect the dots from praying in the Spirit to being strong in the Lord & the power of His might.
    9. When things such as false accusations, gossip, & slander come against you, identify how these would be defined by/fit into this module of teaching? What forces are working through these individuals when these things occur? How should you respond? 
    10. Connect the dots to Paul’s statement that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces of wickedness . . ..”
    11. Often people just assume that if one declares these passages, they have on the whole armour. Why is that not enough, by itself? What else are we called to do?
    12. INTEGRATE Luke 9:23:“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me,” with all the previous work. Connect the dots from Jesus/Yeshua’s assertion here, to Paul’s teaching in Ephesians 6.
