Excellent Bible study This is the first exposure I ve had to Priscilla Shirer and I found her to be a wonderful speaker as well as an engaging writer The lessons were in depth enough that I felt like

study itself was incredible, but I read it in conjunction with Dressed to Kill by Rick Renner, and that made it absolutely life changing Iclearly see where I was slow or even not putting on pieces of armor, where I laced pieces on too loosely and allowing my enemy to attack and win battles that I needlessly gave him power over me I clearly saw the lies I easily believe, and Priscilla Shirer

in the history of the Roman armor and dug deeper into the uses of each piece that sometimes Priscilla glossed over or didn t have room to dive into, making the lesson evenprofound Overall, I highly recommend this study If I could give this study six stars, I would Priscilla Shirer minces no words as she teaches on each part of God s armor in Ephesians While there was always an interesting anecdote or analogy to help me understand her teaching, her writing, and speaking on the companion videos, were meaty and extremely efficient Her teaching was so effective this is the first time I could walk through this part of Scripture and really teach it to someone else I m disappointed it s over and highly recommend I would suggest this Bible Study to anybody who is ages 13 and up and I would DEFINITELY suggest you doing this study with your mom or daughter The sole reason I gave this study 4 stars instead of 5 is because some questions asked in this book were a little confusing and I didn t always know how to answer all of them This books was definitely made for older women, older than little old teenage me It definitely provides many spiritual lessons everybody in their lifetime needs to learn and less I would suggest this Bible Study to anybody who is ages 13 and up and I would DEFINITELY suggest you doing this study with your mom or daughter The sole reason I gave

applicable I simply cannot rave about this study and Priscilla s teaching enough.Please do If I could give this Bible study 10 stars, I would I don t know if it s that this Bible study is the best I

worth it I read this book with a group of women at my church, and enjoyed the conversation as well as the study It s on Ephesians 6 10 19, Paul s description of the armor we need to wear in spiritual

as the study It s on Ephesians 6 10 19, Paul s description of the armor we need to wear in spiritual warfare.I never can read that passage without thinking of the summer I spent sword fighting my male cousin We were both first born teens, used to getting our way, and argumentative But instead of bickering, my dad had us duel in the backyard He taught a college level fencing class and had brought home the foils swords , helmets, and padded, cloth breastplates The dueling did not always benefit us or resolve the conflict I distinctly remember that once we dueled over the last piece of cake while our little sisters ate it But I can still feel the weight of the helmet, the itchiness of the hot padding, and the feel of the sword in my hand To me, these are real, concrete things, not just a story.The situation in Paul s narrative is muchserious Soldiers fight for their lives, and in this world, all of us will face trouble.There were several things about Roman armor of the times that I had not known The soldier s belt was put on first, because it was a weight bearing belt, much like a delivery driver s back bracing belt It partly held the weight of the breastplate, and without it, the breastplate would have been too heavy on the shoulders Likewise, truth should support us, and our acts of righteousness The belt was also a source of a soldier s identification separating them from the citizens, and being without it was such a source of embarrassment that sometimes their commanding soldiers would have them go without it for punishment Truth should be an identifying feature for us as well, and we should be embarrassed without it although our Commanding Officer would never order us to go without it He s kinder than that I didn t realize that a Roman soldiers shoes the gospel of peace had cleats in the form of nails, although it doesn t surprise me And cleats would have come in handy to hold my ground whenever my cousin tried to drive me into the creek in our duels It wasn t one sided I drove him in that direction, too, on occasion, but we were matched well enough that I don t remember either one of us ever getting a dunking over it I do remember scrambling and sliding on the bank and cleats would have helped The shield is the one part of the armor I wouldn t have any idea how to use properly from my fencing experience We had no shields, apart from the knuckle guards on the hilts of our own swords I didn t realize that the type of shield mentioned as the shield of faith was the larger scutum, which was large enough not only to shield its owner, but part of another soldier as well They were meant to be linked together in a turtle formation to protect the soldiers from flaming arrows Likewise, our faith isn t meant to be used alone it s meant to be linked to others faith Our faith can also shield and protect those around us Yes, they need their own faith, but ours can be a refuge for them at times I can see this with our kids I also thought it was interesting that the soldiers would dunk their shields in water so that they would actually extinguish the arrows, not just block them I had recently read a middle ages book with my teens in which the characters did just that Apparently, putting out the flaming arrows wereof a distraction to keep the soldiers from noticing the real danger The sword of the spirit, the Word of God, is the Rhema, the specific Word of God, speaking into our lives The word for sword there was not the heavy, two handed broadsword, but the short sword of close combat, of the tricky situations and personal attacks Probably, it would ve been shorter than the French foil that I used As I said under the topic of the shield, the only shield I had was the knuckle guard of my own hilt When I think of a defense, I think of parrying a blow It amuses me to see the four most basic parries the only ones I ever learned used in the movies In particular, towards the end of The Princess Bride, Inigo Montoya, injured and expecting a death blow, uses those four parries He s at his most pathetic and those were the only parries I ever learned We also laugh at fencing scenes in various movies where they clearly have no idea what they re doing But, the sword is an offensive weapon as well.I liked the discussion on God s perfect righteousness and the righteousness Jesus gave us at the cross I can be grateful for that all the day long All my life long.I appreciated the listing of things for which we can be grateful, p 111 and it made me realize that I had several new slips of paper to put into the Answered Prayer jar.I liked the passages where Jesus called someone s faith little, and Priscilla Shirer s comment, He is not challenging them to focus on faith He is telling them to focus on Him She also said, Your shield of faith works because it is directly connected to the faithfulness of your God I liked Dr Caroline Leaf s study of neuroplasticity, about how negativitiy changes the structure and the real estate of our brains.And although it has nothing to do with this book, I will say a couple of things I learned about this equipment, having used some of it I m far from an expert on fencing, but I did learn a little.The first thing I had to learn was to trust my breastplate and my helmet I was intimidated by my cousin, and it sounded like I got a horrible beating, but I wasn t really hurt at all I think I just spent the first part of the summer learning to just trust my equipment, and stand my ground And God s armor is trustworthy This is how He meant life to be lived, andthan that, He is with us in it.My dad didn t want to train either one of us without the other He thought that was unfair, but he did encourage me that, despite my many losses, and a man s longer reach, women make better swordsmen than men do He wouldn t explain that, but let me figure that out on my own To both our credit, I did, and after I learned it, and the matches wereevenly won, my dad explained it as boys tend to usebrute strength, hack and slash, while women tend to usefinesse, by which he meant thinking, strategy, good form Or, as John Flannagan said, Six inches of steel will do the job as well as three feet of it I laughed when I read that line on sword fighting in the fictional Brotherband series I knew exactly what he meant Anyone who draws his arm back to prepare for delivering a hard blow is leaving their entire chest open for a simple thrust, a move of six inches,or less More if you use good footwork and lunge into it.In any case, we wereevenly matched Whether or not I became the better fencer is , well, probably worth dueling over.But I never got so cocky as to leave my armor off to duel I can t imagine that It would ve been painful We ve got to put our armor on We ve got to use it.Disclaimer I am really not a violent person I thought of French foil fencing as a sport, something to do with my dad and male cousin, in that long ago time I am actually almost, but not quite, a pacifist, and violence is one thing I don t like in books or movies For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rules, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places Ephesians 6 12 .FREE DOWNLOAD ♾ The Armor of God - Bible Study Book ♕ All day, every day, an invisible

book was fantastic The topic is a good one, and the way that she asks questions and infuses other bible passages to look up is very beneficial It had good questions for group discussion although they weren t specific group questions each time our group found questions from the week to discuss that were deep and allowed us to share our struggles and lives together Would probably do this study again as it s not something that you learn once and done. I wasn t sure whether to give this one three or four stars She is a gifted servant of the Lord and had some amazing and useful analogies I will never forget, but I would have lovedengagement with the actual Word of God andin depth homework. Great Bible study Loved the prayer strategy cards and the Actionable Intel at the end of each day s homework.
