This week, we have been looking at how the church can be equipped to play its role as an army of Christ in these end times. God has strategically positioned the church to ensure that His kingdom is established here on earth. To facilitate this process, He has placed leaders over the church. According to Ephesians chapter 4 verse 11, these leaders are the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers whom he has placed over the church.
The militant church like any other army going to battle must be thoroughly prepared and in the right uniform or attire. The attire an army wears gives it an identity. In the same regard, there is a prescribed uniform for the Christian soldier. This uniform comprises the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace as your shoes, the shield of faith, the
helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit. The church militant, cannot pick and choose which ones to wear but must put on the whole armour. It is then that the Lord will be able to stand against the devil’s schemes and become victorious.
