Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 6:11


6:11 Put on the whole armour of God - The Greek word means a complete suit of armour. Believers are said to put on the girdle, breastplate, shoes; to take the shield of faith, and sword of the Spirit. The whole armour - As if the armour would scarce do, it must be the whole armour. This is repeated, ver.#13|, because of the strength and subtilty of our adversaries, and because of an evil day of sore trial being at hand.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 6:11


Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God. The ancient soldier was not equipped for war until he had put on his armor. Paul was at that time a prisoner, probably living near the praetorian camp in Rome, as he was by the Roman customs under the charge of the praetorian prefect. It is possible that the figure was suggested by the sights he so often witnessed. See PNT "1Th 5:8". That ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. The great enemy. The armor was designed not only to protect, but there were weapons also with which to assail him.

    I'm doing a bible study book which teaches us about putting on the Armor of God. The Spirit is through His word our sword to battle the deceitfulness of the evil one. Remain in Constant prayer! We are never alone God promised to never leave nor forsake us. Get into a Bible based church and have fellowship with your fellow Christians. Give grace because it was given.

    I love this chapter in the bible...I try to pray this prayer everyday for our Lord to place on me the full body armour or Christ that I may be able to ward off evil. Without Jesus we are nothing in ourselves.

    We as believers in Christ call him our Lord and we call him that for a reason because he is worthy of the title. What an awesome big God we have that showed his pure mercy on the cross taking on our curse and conquering death so triumphantly for us. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! What true power and might!
