FROM THE HEART: I KNOW WHY

Why is the world experiencing terrorism, fear, and multitudes of false leaders?

Every time Christians start believing they know better than the Lord what Christianity is –
and start writing false Bibles that remove instruction as to what sin is and what happens to those who embrace it –
the ones that are wrongly translated in purpose to elevate man’s wisdom over our Creators –
then evil rises up to force slavery, rape, murder, and false gods on mankind.
Before you think I am not telling the truth, read and study the Bible, praying for guidance.

Here are two important things we are meant to learn from the Old Testament –
which is for our learning, even though it was primarily written for the Jew.

“2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) All scripture is given by inspiration of God [guided by the Lord’s Holy Spirit], and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”

The first thing to learn in the Old Testament is the history of God’s chosen who straighten up and fly right each time God rescues them from the products of their evil ways, just to have them turn their back on God again in short generational order.

The second thing to learn from the Old Testament is the prophesies written, and then hundreds are fulfilled much later in time, by our Lord, in the New Testament.

These lessons are not learned by Christians who do not open their heart, mind, and soul to reading their Bibles, and to studying their Bibles, first hand. Instead they depend on others to do that for them, and are lead astray. Even to prove me wrong, one must do the work first hand. Many have taken this path, and they became believers in the Gospel Regarding Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH US?

At the time of Creation, Biblically speaking, God changes a formless Chaos into Order. The original text’s common translation is, “and the evening and the morning were the first day” (then second, etc.). If this translation is a good one, what happened to the afternoons? Many scholars believe the translation is more accurately, “from Chaos to Order” each day of Creation. As Christian Americans grow into maturity we recognize this theme in many aspects of our own lives. We even feel closer to the Lord as we strive to be more like our Creator.

(Note: If you don’t believe in Creation, please read my prior posts regarding your DNA, proven to be digital information code. Only an intelligent entity could create a unique digital information code for each human ever to exist on planet Earth. Often because of men’s deepest thoughts of being gods themselves, they somehow glaze over at the sheer magnificence of this one aspect of God’s Creation, and ignore it.)

Truth and Justice are the tools used to bring our lives and our world back into Order after the Chaos of crime on all levels. We have institutions to help keep Law and Order such as our court system, the Congress, state legislatures, city councils, and law enforcement organizations. When American Citizens allow these systems to be long corrupted, creating Chaos where once Order had been the norm, we have failed at life and have compromised the lives of our children, their children, their children’s children . . .

We have seen looters in the form of extreme Chaos in our news ruin or stealing private property, and threatening innocent citizens. That they believe their actions to be some kind of Justice is heinously uncivilized, and degenerates our society into Chaos. Lauding a criminal to be a hero of any kind diminishes real heroes to be equal to the scum of society.

As a citizen of the United States of America I have been proud to grow up in a nation that outlawed slavery almost 150 years ago – unlike many other nations then and now. Further, the vast majority of today’s American citizens do not have any ancestor who did own slaves. The dialogue of lies by race baiters regarding slavery in America is being used to divide us, and encourages citizens to bring Chaos and violence to our neighborhoods. The reasons for that earnest division (as well as other division) is for evil purpose. If we let it stand, we are as guilty for different reasons.

“KJV Romans 16:17-20 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen”

We can thank the likes of LBJ’s “Great Society” government entitlements scam into turning our nation into one that is using honest, hard-working middle-class people of all color as slaves; massively increasing this burden and societal division with each decade. The cumbersome taxation of the middle-class funds the programs that our government uses to rob the poor of America from ever breaking their bonds of poverty by making them dependent on the government for food, clothing, and shelter. They become a people believing they are entitled to be given the fruits of other people’s honest endeavors. They believe that if you work hard and buy yourself a home, they are entitled to a home equal to yours.  Complicit people in the government and “Ghetto Pimps” become wildly rich off of these scams. This is evil.

This “entitlement” class spawns many people who have little self-worth, and become highly susceptible to the mindset of criminals, and do commit more crimes than other classes of people. Instead of working to change this criminal class to be more like the working class, politicians and “ghetto pimps” work very hard to claim that this phenomenon is not so. They claim that this portion of the “criminal” class is unfairly tagged. They claim that to speak the truth of a “criminal” class (of all colors) is racism.

Because two hundred years ago, there were many black slaves before we outlawed slavery, the politician and ghetto pimp has zeroed in on the black population to snare them into the “entitlement” mentality, and sadly the “criminal” mind set. I am not a racist for stating the truth, but the politician and ghetto pimps who are made wealthy via the lies convince the “entitlement” and “criminal” classes that I am the racist. When black Americans are successful, and known by the nation as a whole, politicians and ghetto pimps claim that these people are not really black people. That sounds like utter nonsense, but is actually believed by many in the “entitlement” and “criminal” class.

President Obama interjects himself in local law enforcement cases in America to push an entitlement agenda forward. He doesn’t interject himself in any cases to defend a white person criminal, who is killed by an officer of the law of some other race – in an act of self-defense. He made a speech regarding Ferguson, and did talk about wanting to be included in dialogue with those who protest constructively, but he said that AFTER he said the following: “[W]e need to accept that this decision was the grand jury’s to make. There are Americans who agree with it, and there are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It’s an understandable reaction.” This statement from a U S President is racist, and feels very much like he is NOT every American’s president. His statement gives implicit power to those who perceive they are protected when they commit crimes, and even attack an officer of the law.

They believe that their skin color should entitle them to a “get out of jail free” card. This is blatant racism, in an America where most citizens are not racist. The trouble with giving a class of people no reason to be anything other than dependent on the government is that they come to believe they don’t have to follow the same rules / laws as everyone else. They believe they can become “angry” as “an understandable reaction” to truths they don’t like, and further to act on that anger and violently harm innocent citizens and their private property.

Our nation is degenerating in the Chaos of every known debauchery seen in the nations that have declined in history before us. Every citizen who falls back on “watch and see” if this affects me directly is not engaging in his own liberty. What is happening in America is not rocket science, one simply needs to read history to understand. If you cannot find an honest history book to enlighten you, I strongly recommend the Bible. You will see what becomes of our Creator’s children in the history and both the fulfilled and unfulfilled prophecy provided therein. Bible prophecy speaks of a time when justice will be counted for injustice, and injustice will be counted for justice. It would seem to any rational thinking person that that time is now.

I have seen a lot of willful Chaos in the news regarding events such as “Ferguson.” Where are the Americans who are peacefully being counted by the millions who stand for upholding Law and Order? Where are you? Are you still out there? Why are millions of Americans not involved in making sure that Truth, Justice, and Order are defining our heroes, and who are our criminals? Why are our prisons breeding grounds for organized crime, (even terrorism) enjoying the comforts of free men – while victims suffer? Why are thugs and criminals allowed to loot and harm innocent Americans with very, very little effort to make sure Truth, Justice, and Order are maintained?

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH US?

Food For Thought

As we learn new concepts in quantum mechanics . . . literally upending what was revered as scientific fact, I am dwelling on time and the scriptures. Bear with me. Rapture thinking . . . Those loved departed, whether last week or a thousand years ago . . . When they read Revelation and believed the end times were at hand, they were all correct since they are no longer in the realm of time God created. For all departed true faithful through thousands of years, it is the same for them as is for The Lord . . . One day is as a thousand and a thousand is as one. For one generation, the end time will be a double reality on Earth, and outside of time.

It takes an open mind to understand the scriptures at face value. Based on my understanding of the scriptures, we are in the end times approaching rapture and tribulation in relative short time order. I am watchful, as described – not that I know the exact hour or the day.

I am almost struck breathless when I witness a society willing to believe in all manner of witchcraft, and yet so many scoff at the idea of their Creator. You have DNA in the form of a unique digital information code that belongs to each of you – God’s signature on each individual soul. Men are largely believers of concepts such as ghosts and UFO’s, and yet scoff that they actually come from God’s spiritual realm. Heaven forbid that SETI has yet to make one contact with little green men from other planets.

Science has, however, proven that we are living in a digital existence that is inside a larger realm. We have 4 knowable dimensions, and at minimum 6 more that science has proven exist but are not directly knowable to us. Without them advanced science is unable to do ‘the math.’ Nahmanides (rabbi 12th century) speaking of Genesis believed there were perhaps ten dimensions by way of the creation scriptures.

In my direct experience of fervently praying for the specific knowledge of how God could be connected to all of us at once, I was gifted with a revelation / miracle by sight. What I saw, I believe, being securely on the planet at that time, WAS the constraints of the other dimensions lifted. I have come to realize in recent years is that such a revelation is to be shared . . . And to heck with anyone who discounts my personal experience. I, myself came to think after more than a decade that perhaps I was mistaken . . . Only then for it to happen again to address my self doubt. It has been more than a decade since the 2nd experience, and I will never doubt it again. Existing for several minutes in all of the dimensions is almost indescribable, and glorious. It was where I was that also affected my perceptions to have no capacity for stress or worrying at all. Once the miracle ended I very much was unhappy about being constrained in only 4 knowable dimensions again, but that dissipated completely in a few days. I am vey much happy to be here with my husband.

We, on Earth, have been fighting a morality battle that also rages all around us outside of time, in the supernatural realm of God and other of God’s creations. We obviously hunger for our part in the battle between good and evil, because we spend millions reading books about it, and watching movies about it.
I am amazed that anyone wonders why America is not in the end times prophecies in the Bible. We have been loosing the morality battle in America for many decades. Billy Graham once said that if God does not punish the immoral in America, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah. Look around you. We must each decide for ourselves if we are to continue the trends in America to defend the immoral at the expense of the moral. Today, it may not always make you popular, (and fence sitting is as bad as siding openly with the immoral) but if you are a moral soul, it requires your words and actions to be counted among the Godly. The destiny of your immortal soul counts on your active participation.

SEVEN REASONS WHY I PRAY YOU WILL WANT TO STUDY THE KING JAMES HOLY BIBLE

Points of Interest: In 1604 King James I of England authorized English translation of the Hebrew and Greek Holy Bible. Political entities from Papal, to Puritans tried to influence the outcome. Perhaps due to Divine Intervention, none of them were able to be much of an influence. There were English translations already in existence, but they were discovered to not be literally good translations. King James was influenced to authorize the project to bring into existence a good English translation. He did perhaps have some influence to keep political commentary, as seen in the Geneva Bible, from the King James edition. Further influences kept Papal traditions out of the King James Edition. The first result was released in 1611. King James I of England died in 1625, and did not get to see the finished product that took many decades to complete. Like many of you, I was told by detractors that King James I had final say over the English translation that he authorized. That is amazingly not true. The scholars from several universities would work very hard to make the King James Version the best English translation possible.

# ONE

The type of ‘Kings’ English used in the King James Bible was chosen for its beauty. It not only maintained the integrity of the beauty in the written verse, but also maintained the integrity of the content / translation. If I were able to read Hebrew or Greek, I would choose to explore them because I have read of the sheer beauty in the sometimes poetic, and always literarily beautiful verses.

In the New Testament, Jesus quoted from the Hebrew about 10%, and from the Greek 90% of the time. The Greek translation of the Holy Bible is called the Septuagint (Latin for 70). It is called the Septuagint because 70 scholars translated the Old Testament Holy Bible from the Hebrew to the Greek.

We now have the Dead Sea Scrolls, and other modern archaeological finds which give us accurate dating and verify the amazing integrity of the scriptures. Many twentieth century Biblical scholars have experienced great intellectual pleasure in having dated the scriptures most accurately before the proof was found. You may find it an enjoyable exploration to search for yourself what science now knows about the parting of the Red Sea, and what lies at the bottom of that site. There is also a treasure of information in ancient writings other than Biblical that verify people, places, and even events that are Biblical in nature.

Similar to the Greek translation, a minimum of 74 scholars translated, and cross-translated from the Hebrew and the Greek to give us the King James Bible. The scholars came primarily from Cambridge, Oxford, and Westminster. The English of the King James Bible was more formal than the English dialect spoken during the many years of this translation.

I didn’t see the sheer beauty of the King James Bible translation in my early years. I prayed for understanding, and I soon began studying a few amazing Christian commentators. I remember praying for the understanding, but honestly do not remember how I came to know of the several excellent commentators that were instrumental in my theological education. One day I woke up and realized that every word, every phrase, every nuance of story, every single thing in the whole Bible (Old and New Testaments) were connected so intricately with the rest of the scriptures that I am confident the Lord by way of His Holy Spirit guided the 40 authors over thousands of years to write One, 66 Chapter, Bible. A single message system from our Lord.

Before I had prayed for understanding I had been trying to make something written deliberately for simple understanding, much – much – MUCH harder than it had to be. What it did require was studying the entire Bible, and not only popular or isolated verses as I have known some to do. Once I learned to read my Bible at face value, all of the prophetic scriptures, salvation messages, and the Lord on every page were finally there for the reading and discovery. It is important to understand that the rewards I have received from studying The King James Bible, came from frequent exposure to the scriptures. What you receive from the scriptures / blessings, is directly proportional to the time you spend in this activity. The rewards are HUGE.

# TWO

There are centuries of Biblical scholars who praise the integrity of the King James Translation.
There are a few translation problems with words that just do not translate very well. The most famous is the word kill that is more accurately translated, ‘thou shalt not murder’.  I have often seen scripture from the many, many modern translations. When I go to my King James Version and read the correlating scripture, and then read the entire chapter the scripture is contained in, I often see that there is a shift of meaning in some way from other translations. Sometimes, the change is minor, and other times it is major. A shift not only changes the individual scripture, but the link between it and other scriptures is then lost. In today’s world we are realizing that our history has been changed in our schools without our input. As time marches by I have noticed that the history we, and our parents learned is largely no longer found in our grandchildren’s education.

Just as those who are in control of nations decide what version of history will be taught, today’s Christian is bombarded with much misinformation to change Christian belief, and even to turn men from Christianity. We find ourselves in a Christian Nation where not only denominations have been divided and subdivided, but the “Christian” scriptures are often altered in many ways from the subtle to the ridiculous. There are thousands of “Christian” churches that are no longer Bible based churches.

I have read that our neighbor to the north, Canada, has passed laws outlawing parts of our Christian Holy Bible. If your evil goal was to bring the whole world under one secular religious umbrella you would necessarily change existing religions. If you are one who is sitting on the sidelines asking yourself, “what has happened to America?” I strongly suggest that a large part of our answer lies here. Americans have abandoned their Bible based faith at the door to their education, to their jobs, to their neighbor’s home, and in some cases – even at the door to their faith. If we are to be The Body of Christ / The Church, our values, principles, and beliefs come from the message system The Lord gave us, our Christian Holy Bible.

# THREE

In the King James Version of our Holy Bible we know some facts that are clearly defined for us . . .
–     The entire Bible is for our learning / understanding.
–     It is easy to know which chapters are written for the Jew, and which chapters are written for the Gentile (Christian). It is easy to understand who is talking, and who is being talked to.
–     God’s promises to Israel are supported through the New Testament. One would not believe in “replacement theology” if they have studied well the KJV Holy Bible.
–     God’s promises to the Christian are also easily found through the New Testament. A Christian should not believe in “social justice” as an Earthly Christian trait – for as long as men have their “sin nature” utopia / socialism is impossible. Vengeance belongs to the Lord, and therefore we have an “equal justice system” to help us live in peace with one another. We will live without a “sin nature” in eternity with our Lord, but at minimum that is more than 1007 “years” down the road.

# FOUR

The world is changing rapidly. Information is doubling, and eroding at the same time. Should The Body of Christ, The Church be forced underground by evil world agendas, it will be important for family members to be studying the same Bible . . . for fractured extended families across the nation to be studying the same Bible . . . and for a fractured world to be studying the same Bible. It would break my heart if we lost the beauty of the scriptures, as well as the integrity of the scriptures – maintained across The Hebrew, The Greek, and The King James English.

# FIVE

The King James Holy Bible is the Bible my grandparents, great grandparents, Et al. – the most widely used Bible of “The Greatest Generation.” This was the Bible my mother passed down to me, as her mother had given to her, and I gave to my daughter.

# SIX

The King James Holy Bible directs my husband and I as equals, but different in the ways the Lord created us different . . . promoting love, respect, faithfulness, and fulfillment.

# SEVEN

The King James Version of the Holy Bible is still the most widely purchased and read version in today’s market of hundreds of English versions. Why are there hundreds of English versions? It is my opinion that they are at least in part a tool to further divide The Body of Christ / The Church.

BEEN A WHILE SINCE I HAD SOMETHING NEW TO SAY . . .

 

Earlier – these were my thoughts on someone else’s FB post –
and then I had one of those darn epiphany . . .
For some reason the Lord decided I would be the most minority type of personality in our time (Searcher). One of the things I learned in my mid 30’s when I sought help to understand why I invited so much hurt into my life . . . OMG the first thing my good psychologist friend taught me is that hardly anyone on the planet woke up each day in the world I live in! Sadly I thought everyone lived in the world I envision. I remember my best friend’s Mama picking me up by my shoulders when I was 15 and telling me I was so gullible, I would be dead by 21! I live in a black and white world, and almost everyone else lives in the gray world. I absolutely love, and have zero capacity to hate or be mad at anyone for more than a few hours. (However, I have learned to let people drop out of my forward motion life.)
The problem with that gray world is that as the pendulum has been swinging on its leftward path, the bar of what is good and true and acceptable has been sliding ever faster toward the reality that has changed our very defined world to a world where anything goes . . . good becomes bad . . . bad becomes good . . . an upside down world (like in the dark ages) – and that pendulum swings left and right over a couple a hundred years – over and over again each time reaching further left and further right. Some of us were born with a strong sense of what is true and right for a healthy and moral people celebrating life and our Creator – – – in the opposite world man becomes a more self-righteous anti-life people who justify in their own minds every bad thing they do. (Abortion, Anti-Bill of Rights. and such) The advice I received was to continue my life with my view of the world. Some will fall in and be close to me, and some will fall out. Those that fall out – let them go easily. That is better than betraying who I am to myself and my Creator.
Two hundred years ago, my views were in sync. Learning about how others think also helped my career skyrocket. I understood those whose work lives were in my care – and understanding others better, I was able to be less rigid in those areas where it was not detrimental to anyone or the corporation, and remain rigid where it made a positive change for all concerned. Life isn’t easy – just good.

The Epiphany:
The Lord didn’t make me this way because I am better than any other human being in general. In my late twenties, I would go home and pray because people kept coming to me to make the decisions. That took some getting used to. Now that it is finished . . . He just made me this way to be an example of truly living. Some hated me and made me cry; but in my stubbornness of right and wrong, I would cling to what I knew was right. When I made a mistake, I owned it and paid the price and tried to learn from it. From two hundred years ago when most Americans were like me – where I believed I belonged – – – unto today when relatively few are like me – – – there had to be thousands of us who, even with all our human failings, will stand to the end and say with conviction, this is right and that is wrong – and know beyond any doubt of what we believe.

We believe that God, our Creator exists, and when we embrace that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was totally possible for God, and our belief and relationship with Him is central to knowing what is right and what is wrong, our success is not recognized by many. That is because it is not measured in the prizes of this world. Sadly, when it is convenient for others to use people like me, we usually don’t see it coming . . . and in the end, is the amazing epiphany that it really didn’t matter one whit. In the end, I am still who I am, spiritually unscathed and among the beloved of my Lord.
Even though the pendulum is far left, there are millions of us of strong belief in the here and now to help everyone remember – what the truth of our Creation is – what is really important in living – what justice is – and that the truth of any matter, large or small, is supremely important. No, we are not better than anyone . . . just more fortunate. Being truth seekers, we simply refuse to live the CONVENIENT lies that so many accept without question. Yes, I cry when I am deceived. Yes, I cry when someone hurts me. And then I simply let them go their way knowing I did all I could, in my flawed humanity, to be an example of one who loves the Lord and truth – and everything else in life pales small in the comparison.

IN THESE TROUBLING TIMES OF LIES AND TURMOIL IN OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT . . .

I write of faith, honor, personal responsibility, and good vs. evil. I pray America reads Christian commentators, and rekindles our flame for the truth – and one by one The Sleeping Giant of the American people Wake Up. The Sleeping Giant of America was never her government, but the engine behind the government, We the People! Helloooooo? Are you there?

Do not be deceived. The enemy within and outward does not live by our code of honor, truth, and justice. You must never be deceived by the hordes of those who care not for your life, or the lives of your children. Oh Lord, help my nation see God’s Truth and Justice. In life and in death I shall love my God, my Creator, who created me in His Image, in His Truth, in His Commandments of Law. Yes and Amen.

No matter who has invaded the realm of our United States Constitution, we, God’s children will raise His standard once again . . . for our children. Throw off the chains of false money that is a lie. You work for yourselves and your families, and your local communities – this is what has been forgotten. They hope you will become hordes of anger and violence, so they can finally totally control you. Should the unthinkable harms come to America from our own government, you must remain peaceful, faithful, and of sound thought and planning to survive. In the meantime, turn off any media that offends our Christian values and the futures of our children — in violence for the sake of violence — sex for the sake of robbing our children and our marriages of goodness — and “news” designed to trigger your button to destructive anarchy. If anyone moves to encourage you to being brainwashed, tell them that the medias crossed the line of art and / or truth a long, long time ago.

Not to become self-pious as the pretenders of the Faith did many times before. (Inquisition, witch trials, and such in history.) But instead to live in faith, love, and personal charity as our grandparents did as the “greatest generation.” Together, we must re-build our industry / endeavor in America, remembering that we are still the “land of the free, and home of the brave.” We must reject those that come to break our laws openly, and invite those who come here legally. We can improve our immigration laws, but we must reject those who come to take our jobs, and remain loyal to another nation. Those nations all have very strict immigration laws, but shred ours to pieces – We Must Reject such one-sided thinking.

Our Christian strength must grow in our common Christian faith, and not be mired down in man-made denominational and secular curriculum. There will always be Christian denominations before Christ’s return, but they must not divide us as an American Christian Nation.

There are certain aspects of the Bible that we can all understand together. When Jesus walked the Earth in Biblical times, He was a Jew, and His original disciples were Jewish, and preached to the Jewish people. The Old Testament is the story Creation, and of why, who, when, and how Israel began, and its Jewish Biblical history. The New Testament holds the history of the prophecies being fulfilled regarding our Jewish King / Messiah. Because they knew not who Jesus was, God blinded Israel regarding Jesus until the age of the Gentiles / Christians was completed. The New Testament introduces one disciple for the Gentile, Paul. The Pauline Epistles in the New Testament were written for the Christian. The end of the New Testament is primarily written for Israel whom will experience the tribulation. The entire Bible was written for the Jew and the Christian for their learning and understanding of God, Jesus (God come to man on Earth as our Savior and our King), and the Holy Spirit (our connection to Jesus once he left Earth after His resurrection.)

Those are grounds we can meet on and delve into the deeper meanings from that common platform. It is interesting to note that today Jews are becoming believers in Jesus Christ as their personal savior. The entire Holy Bible is a message to man from God that has captured the hearts and minds of men for thousands of years.

The enemy wants you to deny your personal relationship with God, in favor of their group relationship with their false god(s). The enemy is preaching about a combined salvation of their group of political people in lies and treachery. The enemy places human life at the bottom of importance on Earth. They resemble Earth worshipers in their faith. They belittle you and desire to destroy you if you “cling to your Bibles.” The anti- Christian / anti-life enemy is the greatest destroyer of men and women – with their destructive agendas that they paint in pretty pictures that never happen. Their War on Poverty has managed to enslave millions into being dependent on the state, thus robbing them of full lives of good endeavor; and more often robbing them of a personal relationship with the Lord.

May I remind you of the scriptures regarding the “Whole Armour of God”:
“Ephesians 6:10-20 King James Version (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 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. [I implore you to understand exactly what this is saying.]
13 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.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”
