Ephesians 6:10-18 speaks of putting on our spiritual armor in resisting attacks of the devil. Paul is exhorting us to stand against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places... to withstand in a battle-stance attitude! This means to be determined not to give up ground! Prayer is how we engage in this warfare. Praying in the spirit, armed with the Word Of God, keeps us steady in the power of the Lord's might. This allows us to lose no ground and makes us victorious, time and time again!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
