Our minds will always know that we are saved when we have this helmet on. God saves our soul, and He saves our mind! In fact, “No weapon that is formed against us shall ever prevail!”
As we read, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17
Our enemy would like us to forget this though, he doesn’t want us to remember anything that Jesus has done for us! He would love to convince us that we were never saved, he will say lies such as we are too terrible to be saved! That Jesus would never considering saving someone like us! The devil is a liar! “For God so loved the world that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH ON HIM SHALL BE SAVED! John 3:16
God is not willing that any should perish, it is God’s perfect mission that he should seek and save the Lost! This is why He came from heaven to the earth, so that we can be saved, as it is written, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10 our helmet, even the Helmet of Salvation protects our mind, keeping our mind stayed upon the Lord Jesus at all times. Of the whole Armor of God, the Helmet of Salvation may be the last thing that we put on, getting ready, by the putting on of this suit, is the beginning of our defensive way that we shall protect ourselves against the whiles of the devil. Now let’s consider the offensive! How shall take an offensive attack to our enemy before he can get to us?
To do this God has provide a sword! Again note here that a sword is not our defensive tool, but rather an offensive weapon that we can skillfully use in this battle.
With this sword we are not limited to holding it up as to defend ourselves against the deceitful lies of the devil, but now we have in our hand a valuable and extremely sharp weapon that we can use to engage our enemy with God’s truth.
