God’s Armour is Your Victory ~ Jahfas Victor Ahua

God’s Armour is Your Victory

Discovering Christ in Ephesians

We saw from our last discussion that we are wrestling with strong holds; this is why we put on the Whole Armour of God, and these strong holds are: imaginations, everything that exalts itself above the knowledge of God(who God is and what he has done for us in Christ Jesus), Thoughts (we bring every thought to obey the power of Christ and what he has wrought for us).

Then the apostle continues;

“Wherefore take unto you the whole Armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand,” Ephesians 6:13.

This is a powerful exhortation, observe carefully that it is does not say take unto you ‘your’ whole armour. No! It is not our armour, but The Armour of God. If it is our armour, then it becomes works salvation and condemnation and fear are inevitable.

Thank God for Jesus, what God wears upon himself for battle, is what we are made to put on…

If we take unto ourselves any armour which is not God’s Armour, we are so defeated. We are not to bring our armour to fight spiritual battles, but we are to take the armour which is outside of ourselves — The Armour of God.

We are to take God’s Armour as our own….

Therefore, this is the question we must ask, “How did God fight the enemy to give us victory?”

The entirety of God’s Armour for the defeat of Satan was Jesus Christ. Jesus is The Armour of God. If we wear upon ourselves anything outside of Christ, we are doomed to fail.

This is why we are told Christ is our all. He is not our ‘some’, but he is our sum of all spiritual things;

“Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all,” Colossians 3:11.

The apostle goes on to open up this armour of God;

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness,” Ephesians 6:14.

Now we have said above that The Armour of God is Jesus. Christ the Power and Wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:24).

Thus, let’s observe the armour of God, one after the other, through the eyes of God,

The First weapon, having your loins girt about with “Truth”

Which truth? We all know there is no other truth but He who is the truth. Truth is a person, and that person is Jesus.

The first armour we put on is Jesus, the Truth. You and I are not the truth. Neither philosophy nor any other vain reasoning. If we look to ourselves for truth, we are putting on ourselves as the armour. Our truth is Jesus. As long as he is the truth, he is tour truth.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me,” John 14:6.

The Second weapon mentioned above is the breastplate of “Righteousness”

Which righteousness? Mine or whose? Righteousness is a person, not a doing. It is a nature that manifests itself through godly actions. This nature is Jesus. Jesus is our righteousness.

“In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,” Jeremiah 23:6 emphasis added.

All our righteousness are as a filthy rag before The LORD (Isaiah 64:6). This is why God has given us an eternal righteousness which is the person of Jesus. He is made our righteousness.

We put faith in what Christ has done on the cross for the ungodly and declare even as Martin Luther would do “Jesus I am your sin, you are my righteousness.”

He is the one we put on as our qualification for every blessing and not our own good works. If we dare, the devil knows us so well, our hearts know us better and will definitely condemn us, we will fail. In of ourselves there is nothing good (Romans 7:18).

If we wend to our works, we have left the Armour of our God to our own armour. You are not what God used to defeat Satan remember:)

Look what this verse says;

“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption,” 1 Corinthians 1:30.

Then the apostle continues listing God’s armour;

“And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace,” Ephesians 6:15.

The Third weapon mentioned above is the “Gospel of Peace.”

Which peace? Peace is not just a feeling. Peace is a person, peace is Christ.

“For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us,” Ephesians 2:14.

The Gospel of Peace is the over-the-top good news of what Jesus has done for a bankrupt sinner as I am. Now we have peace with God. God is no longer angry with us, the wrath of God for all our sins, past, present and future have been fully satisfied by the death, burial and resurrection of the Christ (that’s a huge statement right there!)

This is why it is called The Gospel of Peace. And it is truly The Gospel of Peace. In Him I have found my rest. The gospel of peace is the gospel of Christ, the power of God unto salvation;

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek,” Romans 1:16.

Then the apostle continues;

“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked,” Ephesians 6:16.

The Fourth Weapon mentioned is “Faith “

It may sound a little strange but Faith is a person. Faith is a spirit. Faith is The Spirit of Christ;

“We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak,” 2 Corinthians 4:13.

This is the reason we are told Christ the Author and Finisher of our Faith. It begins with Him and ends with Him.

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith,” Hebrews 12:2.

And also this is why not all men have Faith, because not all men have Christ.

“For all men have not faith…” 2 Thessalonians 3:2.

Then the apostle continues;

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,” Ephesians 6:17.

The Fifth weapon mentioned is the Helmet of “Salvation.”

This doesn’t have to take long. Jesus is salvation. And he is gift of God for all sinners.

“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid,” Psalm 27:1,3.

Finally the Sixth weapon explained is by the scripture;

“and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,” Ephesian 6:17.

We all know who the word of God is;

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,” John 1:1.

Truly Christ is all and the sufficient Armour. Just by putting on Christ you can see that the enemy is already defeated, for he also believes and trembles before God.

When you put on God, the devil believes and trembles. You become terror to devils even as Jesus is.

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. James 2:19

Sermon Excepts:

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Romans 8:9

Life Points | As a born again Child of God, you have the Spirit of Christ on your inside as your new nature.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. John 3:6

Life Point | Jesus said you are spirit, This means the reality of your spirit ought to be your experience for this is who you truly are.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

Life Point | The word says you are a new creature, to enjoy the full benefits you must understand how you are created.

And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 4:24

Life Point | You are created righteous, holy, having the fullness of God as your nature. You are created whole.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: Colossians 2:9-10

Life Point | You are complete in Christ, the fullness of God, all that God has dwells on your inside. We only have to draw out of the fullness in us so our lives can experience the abundance.

How do I experience this wholeness?

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 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. Romans 12:1-2

Life Point | Don’t be conformed to your physical state, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Changing your mind is not just a five minutes study each day, you must be willing to wholly become a living sacrifice, to give yourself to the word until it starts profiting you.

Life Point | As you keep your mind stayed on the reality of who you are in the Spirit, just as a cocoon metamorphizes to a butterfly, you will be changed to your reality in the Spirit.

Life Point | The Trasnforned used here in romans here is the Greek word metamorphoō (Strong’s G3339) from we get the the English word metamorphosis from. The cocoon metamorphizing to a beautiful butterfly is a perfect example of what we can become if we wholly submit to God’s word to transform our lives.

Understanding Strong Holds – Pastor Jahfas Ahua

July 20, 2021

Discovering Christ in Ephesians

~Understanding Strong Holds~

We saw from our last discussion that when we empty God’s armoury and put his armour on ourselves all we fight against is just wiles: tricks, lies.

Then we hear the apostle continue;

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

Please pay very close attention because the devil has used this verse to deceive many of us into some kind of wrong spiritual warfare.

Yes, there is a wrestling. The word of God does not promote laxity neither does it promote passivity. Therefore there is an active participation on our part through the power of the Spirit in enjoying the victory we have in Christ.

And again it is worthy also of note that our warfare is not with flesh and blood, it is not a physical war so we don’t need guns and spears neither do we need kitchen knives.

The wife or husband is not the problem, neither are our neighbours but there is a spirit behind their actions.

So the wrestling is “against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

However remember that the force of all these hosts put together amounts to nothing but “wiles.” Just mere tricks, cunning craftiness.

But why wiles? Because all principalities and powers are already disarmed;

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Colossians 2:15

Naturally speaking, you are a soldier of Christ with the armour of God, what will you expect an unarmed person to do? Is it not to trick you to give him your gun with which he can use to hurt you?

This is what the devil does, he no longer has power over a born again Christian. He is stripped of all power and authority. Hear the statement of Jesus;

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:18-19

Observe carefully this statement “I beheld Satan as lightning ‘fall’ from heaven” It does not say he came down from heaven as the son of man did, however, he fell. And this heaven is not literal but a symbol of a place of authority.

This is why the next statement is “behold I give you power.” He is empty, this is why he is restless, he doesn’t want you to get offensive. He feeds on our ignorance. He depends on the power we give to him through fear and ignorance.

We are the ones that can exalt him so he can use the power we have placed on him to harm us. This warfare stuff is clearly explained here;

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

Observe this semi – colon sign ; following strong holds; which tells us the statement has not ended, these strong holds are what followed as the conversation went on.

So what is the warfare? What is the wrestling?

“casting down”

What do we cast down?

∆ “Imaginations”

∆ “every high thing that exalteth itself against the KNOWLEDGE of God”

∆ “bringing into captivity every THOUGHT to the obedience of Christ”

I don’t see fire balls here, all I see is wiles. Imaginations, knowledge and thoughts, all these cannot happen outside of us, hence the battle is in between our ears.

Thus his weapon is his mouth!

The battle ground is our minds.

Remember we shared that we are the ones that give him power. When we exalt him above what the scriptures say of him, when we exalt him above the knowledge of God, whatsoever we say he is, that is our power in action through him.

This is why we cast down “every high thing that exalteth itself against the KNOWLEDGE of God”

Long before the sickness, you thought you could be sick, long before the devil had that authority over you, you gave it to him.


For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Proverbs 23:7

This is why we are asked to cast down Imaginations; the movies have fooled us, given us a wrong picture of the devil with horns instead of a little thing with a large mouth. We are to cast down anything contrary to the abundant life Christ has given us in him.

I pray the Holy Spirit uses my feeble way of expression to set you free from the fear of Satan.

Confession.

Glorious father, what a privilege to be called your son. You have delivered me from the power of darkness into the kingdom and authority of Christ.

I am the power of God in Christ Jesus. The life and nature of God is at work in me. I am created in my father’s likeness, a consuming fire. I am a terror to principalities and powers.

The victory of Christ is functioning in my body, home, and business as I exercise the authority of Christ everywhere I go. Hallelujah!

Blessings in Christ,

Gifts of Healings Live Healing Service – The law of The Spirit of Life at Work in You ~ Jahfas Ahua

The Law of The Spirit of Life at Work in You!

Watch July 16 Episode:

Sermon Excerpts:

Life Point | There is such a thing as the Law of sin and death which works in the members of a man producing every kind of evil.

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; Colossians 2:14

Life Point | The word translated ordinances above is the word dogma in the Greek and it means a law ( ceremonial, Ecclesiastical, civil) it absolute means the law of sin and death since we hear it was contrary to us!

Life Point | The law of sin and death, this law which produces sickness, poverty, hatred, depression, anxiety and anything deadly that you can think of is taken out of the way and nailed to the cross.

Life Point | This is what Isaiah 53:4-5 explained. All sicknesses, every thing contrary to the abundant life of Jesus is right now at the cross, and it cannot be risen from the dead!

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15

Life Point | Jesus disarmed all powers, rose from the cross and nailed back the devil there with all his works. Every disease, demon, whatsoever is totally disarmed.

Life Point | But why am I still sick? As long as you can tolerate sickness you will leave with it! Resist the disarmed devil and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)

Life Point | You have to sit at home and see your sicknesses and sorrows and Mr devil hanging right there on the cross of Jesus as you enjoy the victory of Christ.

Life Point | You are perpetually under the law of the Spirit life giving life to every fiber of your flesh. Brother it’s a law, you may not just be receiving! It’s not God’s giver that is faulty, its our receiver that needs fixing!

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2

Life Point | Sin and death is on the cross, Christ is at work in you now. Apostle Paul knew this and wrote:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Life Point | My sins, sicknesses were crucified on the cross, Christ walked out and took this body and is living in it. His faith, and life giving Spirit is producing the manifestation of God you all see! This is Paul’s view!

Now how do enjoy this wonder life in Christ?

First you must be born again.

Life Point | If you are, then you must believe what is written concerning your life and start speaking!

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 2 Corinthians 4:13

Believe + Speak = Manifestation
Blessings in Christ,
