Quenching The Spirit (1)
A Sermon on Ephesians 6:10-13
The Whole Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (ESV)
The Church begins at Pentecost; under the power of the Holy Spirit; the devil's aim to mar the work of the Holy Spirit; the danger of excesses with regard to the doctrine of the Spirit; quenching the Spirit; the main trouble in today's Church; the Holy Spirit and the image of fire; the fruit of the Spirit; love.
