CHRIST, THE ARMOR OF GOD (Continued)
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth...
As we cover the next several verses of Ephesians 6, the Image of Christ will emerge in power. There are specific instructions by the Spirit on how to stand in the evil day. First, having your loins girt about with truth. The Great Strategist placed Truth about the loins or the generative power. His Word is forever settled in heaven and is consistent with this thought, the Psalmist who declared, "For the LORD [is] good; his mercy [is] everlasting; and his truth [endureth] to all generations.:_Psalm 100:5. Christ, the enduring Truth of God to all generations described Himself as the Way, the Truth and the Life_ John 14:6. He added that no man cometh to the Father but by Himself. The generative power of truth is seen in James 1:18 which reads, "Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures."
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ._John 1:14,17. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war._Revelation 19:11. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent._John 17:3
