THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD 5 – THE HELMET OF SALVATION

Ephesians 6:10-17

Ephesians 6:17

To put on the helmet of salvation is to constantly read, study and meditate on the word of God. Meditation is to ponder, mutter and reflect on the word and not to make one’s mind blank as is taught by eastern religions. The latter opens your mind to demonic control.

A helmet is a piece of armour that covers the head. Your head is a part of your body that can be used to identify you, as evidenced by the snapshots used in identification cards. Wearing the helmet of salvation identifies you as a child of God and tells the devil to take his hands off you.

It is unfortunate, however, that many believers remove their helmet of salvation when they get to certain circles; they don’t want people there to know that they are saved. They try to conform to the world rather than being different. Romans 12:2 says:

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

When a Christian refuses to identify as a child of God, that Christian is removing the protection from his or her head, and that is one delicate part of the body that will result in instant death if it is struck. Many people lose their salvation because they are trying to conform to the world. Keep your salvation intact by boldly identifying as a child of God everywhere you go.

The blood of Jesus, which was shed on the cross, is what gives us the gift of salvation. Those that are saved are of the light and not of the darkness, as seen in today’s Bible reading. Hence, you must behave as a child of light at all times. Matthew 7:16 says that you can identify those who are saved by their fruits. If you start exhibiting fruits that are not of God, your helmet of salvation is off, and that spells trouble because on the last day, when Jesus comes back to take His own to be with Him, He will only take those who still have their helmets of salvation on. This is why you must work out your salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12). Don’t assume that you still have your helmet of salvation on just because you have been going to church or even because you are a pastor. Check your salvation at all times to be sure that you are still standing. (1 Corinthians 10:12) says that you should take heed if you think you are standing, lest you fall.

shalom!
