Bible Commentary for Ephesians 6:17

Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 6:17


6:17 And take for an helmet the hope of salvation - #1Thes 5:8|. The head is that part which is most carefully to be defended. One stroke here may prove fatal. The armour for this is the hope of salvation. The lowest degree of this hope is a confidence that God will work the whole work of faith in us; the highest is a full assurance of future glory, added to the experimental knowledge of pardoning love. Armed with this helmet, the hope of the joy set before him, Christ endured the cross, and despised the shame, #Heb 12:2|. And the sword of the Spirit, the word of God - This Satan cannot withstand, when it is edged and wielded by faith. Till now our armour has been only defensive. But we are to attack Satan, as well as secure ourselves; the shield in one hand, and the sword in the other. Whoever fights with the powers of hell will need both. He that is covered with armour from head to foot, and neglects this, will be foiled after all. This whole description shows us how great a thing it is to be a Christian. The want of any one thing makes him incomplete. Though he has his loins girt with truth, righteousness for a breastplate, his feet shod with the preparation of the gospel, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit; yet one thing he wants after all. What is that? It follows,


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 6:17


Eph 6:17 Take the helmet of salvation. The Roman soldier wore on his head a metallic cap to protect it from blows, called a helmet. Isa 59:17 says: "He put a helmet of salvation on his head". See also 1Th 5:8. Salvation, the consciousness that we have a Savior "able to save unto the uttermost" (Heb 7:25). And the sword of the Spirit. The armor before described is to protect; the sword to assail. It is the Christian soldier who is to wield the sword of the Spirit. That is, the Spirit conquers through him. The word is the word of God. Thus Peter conquered on Pentecost, and Paul in his labors. Thus always and everywhere. The Christian soldier filled with the Spirit must "preach the word". See Heb 4:12.

Discussion for Ephesians 6:17

  • A.l.reid on Ephesians 6:17
    The coronavirus hoax has proven Paul right. Spiritual wickedness in high places, closing churches and letting abortion clinics remain open.

    There are over 38 billion viruses in the human body, these so called viruses actually help repair the body when it is under attack, true scientists know this, but pseudo actor scientists on the news read lies penned by government tyrants who oppresses and muzzles his people, and like Judas of all, for thirty pieces of silver, filthy lucre.

    Deadly vaccines manufacturers are making huge profits, as are cancer-inducing chemical 'cleansing' spray makers and muzzle making producers who use underpaid workers in unsanitary conditions; masks can cause hypoxia, brain damage, fatigue, etc.

    Is there a sunch thing as being haunted and so how do u know
  • Chris - in Reply on Ephesians 6:17
    Felisha, if you mean as in a house that is haunted, then I have not encountered any & the Bible doesn't speak of such occurrences. The Bible rather speaks of spirits & particularly in the Old Testament in the Bible, warnings for God's people to not deal with familiar spirits & wizards. There were people in those early days, & of course these days as well, who consulted the dead & who deal with satanic spirits. These satanic spirits are very real as seen in Scripture (see Mathew 10:1, 12:45, Mark 3:11 for a few examples). But as far as haunted houses or even in seances, it could well be evil spirits mimicking departed people. But these are just my thoughts as I've never been involved in this. And these of course, are very dangerous practices & you should stay well clear of them & from anyone who tries to seduce you to join them.
