God's Armor - Part1, Episode 2

December 7, 2018

It’s been said that all our trials are Father-filtered, meaning that the enemy can’t touch you or I unless God gives him permission. That includes permission for how long and how much he is allowed. Satan can never touch a child of God without God’s permission. So when we go through challenges wearing God’s armor, we can know that it is God-allowed and He will provide a way of escape so we are able to bear it. With more on how God protects us with His armor, let’s join Pastor Jeff in Ephesians 6 for our study titled, “God’s Armor” in Sound Doctrine.

He continues to show us how to attain and maintain that eternal hope in temporal challenges.
