I am Knight Aquamarine
I am named after the precious stone.
It is the eighth foundation stone at
the New Jerusalem in Heaven.
It represents God's Spirit of
POWER AND MIGHT.
When we receive God's Counsel we will
be blessed with His Power and MIGHT.
God wants us to be blessed which means to be
empowered to prosper as a result of having
God's favor in your life.
After God made Adam and Eve the first thing He
did was to bless them. Genesis 1:26-28
After Noah and his sons got out of the ark
God blessed them. Genesis 9:1
And in Genesis 12 God appears to Abram.
In Genesis 12:2 God says "I will make of
thee a great nation, and I will bless thee,
and make thy name great; and thou shalt be
a blessing. God renamed the man Abraham.
He is known as the father of the Jews.
and the father of the 12 tribes mentioned
in the book of Revelations.
Jesus told His disciples
"In the future you will see the Son of Man
sitting at the right hand of the MIGHTY ONE
and coming on the clouds of heaven."
Jesus called His Father God the Mighty One because
God has all of the Might and Power of the Universe,
and He wants His children to learn how to be Mighty
and Powerful also.
We already learned that Paul told the Ephesians that
In Ephesians 6:10 Paul tells us:
we are chosen by God and predestined according to the
plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with
the purpose of His will, and that God gives His children
wisdom and understanding. Paul continues to pray that
God will give us the Spirit of wisdom and revelation,
so that we may know God better. Then Paul says:
"I pray that your hearts will be flooded
with light so that you can understand the confident
hope He has given to those He called—His holy people
who are His rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray
that you will understand the incredible greatness of
God’s power for us who believe Him. This is the same
mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and
seated Him in the place of honor at God’s right hand
in the heavenly realms. Now He is far above any ruler
or authority or power or leader or anything else—not
only in this world but also in the world to come.
God has put all things under the authority of Christ
and has made Him head over all things for the benefit
of the church. And the church is His body; it is made
full and complete by Christ, who fills all things
everywhere with Himself."
"Be strong in the Lord, and in His MIGHTY POWER.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can
take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the
heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full
armor of God, so that when the day of evil
comes, you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then,
with the belt of truth
buckled around your waist,
with the breastplate of righteousness
and with your feet
fitted with the readiness that
comes from the gospel of peace.
In addition to this, take up the
shield of faith,
with which you can extinguish
all the flaming arrows
of the evil one. Take the
helmet of salvation
sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all
kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind,
be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."
Paul uses the idea of suiting up in armor because we
really are in a war against satan and his demons.
satan wants to destroy and kill us, but the
good news is that Jesus has prepared us for
the battle. We just have to take the authority
that He has given us to fight the good fight.
The belt of truth is the Truth that Jesus died for
our sins and made us Justified. Give your belt the
red color like the red Ruby.
The Breastplate of Righteousness should be Orange.
The Helmet of Salvation is Yellow because we are Sealed
by the Salvation of Jesus Christ.
These are the gifts that Jesus gave us through His grace.
There is more...
The Sword of the Spirit is the Knowledge the Bible gives us.
So put some green emeralds on the handle of your sword.
The Holy Spirit gives us the gifts of Faith with our Shield.
Place the six gems on your shield.
And finally we are ready to walk in Peace with Forgiveness,
Like Jesus Christ and being Noble and Generous.
Color your shoes turquoise and purple.
"Humble yourselves, therefore,
under God's MIGHTY hand, that
He may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on Him
because He cares for you.
Be self-controlled and alert.
Your enemy the devil prowls
around like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour.
Resist him, standing firm
in the faith, because you
know that your brothers
throughout the world are
undergoing the same kind
of sufferings. And the God
of all grace who called you
to His eternal glory in Christ,
after you have suffered a little
while, will Himself restore you and
make you strong, firm and steadfast.
To Him be the POWER for ever and ever.
Amen 1 Peter 5:6-11
