That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
Our scriptures text talks about the “old man”. The old man doesn’t refer to someone like your grand dad,but the Unrenewed of our former old life while we were in darkened.Though our spirit have been born again our soul need to be renewed day by day.
The ‘old man’ takes pleasure in longing after
dethrone Christ in our hearts. The works of the flesh are the works of darkness which activate the cloak of darkness. The cloak of darkness deactivates the armor of light in a believer. It’s so crucial that every believer understands how this works.The scriptures therefore charge us to put off the works of the old man, in order to put on the Armor of Light.
It’s important to realize that your armor of light works with the consciousness of who you are in Christ, and it is voice-activated. You are a being of light, therefore be instant to activate your armor by decreeing “Light Be!”. Choose to remain in your armor by giving no place to fear, strife and other works of the flesh. Whether you are in the car, at the groceries, at home or challenged with any work of darkness, let your affirmation be “Light Be”! Your armor activates. Halleluyah!
