The Covering as a Lifestyle

In time for the season, I’d like to share a book I have read on the power of the Covering by Hank Hanegraaf.

I don’t know what supernatural mickey ‘they’ have against me reading it. It was just a book about the Covering as a Lifestyle~ and I don't mean covering in any fashionable way. It took me almost more than a month for me to read and dissect.

What I’m referring to is how to protect oneself from evil. And there are lot out there. Based on Paul, he explains through God’s grace and guidance that we have

‘to put on the full armor of God so we can take our stand against the devil’s schemes’ ~ (Galatians 10:11).

Paul spoke of the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the sword of Spirit, and finally - prayer.

After what seemed to be endless hours, let me now put my inputs on how I can apply the Covering little by little to mould and change my lifestyle.

To know the TRUTH - by reading the word of God & believing in it without a doubt, strengthens my stand to live in…

RIGHTEOUSNESS - for if I know and believe in the TRUTH but do not live in it, I inevitably forfeit my moral authority to speak. If I know the TRUTH and live in RIGHTEOUSNESS then I live my life in…

PEACE ~ which makes me stand firm in the midst of distress, disease, destrutcion-even death. But all will be in vain if I dont have saving…

FAITH ~ the kind that moves and transforms a person to be better and to help other people. With only that kind of faith can we extinghish all the flaming arrows (badgering & bullying) of the dark side. Such faith can achieve…

SALVATION ~ Believe in being saved protects our minds from being disouriented in the throngs of spiritual warfare. To replenish such strength that comes from God alone, I need to constantly brush up on…

SCRIPTURE ~ for me to always be reminded of the Truth so I would be able to stand the fiercest temptations of the dark side who has studied mankind thoroughly.

But the most powerful of all for me is PRAYER for when I am able to commune with the Lord and release all my fears does He sustain my strength to continue to face all the challenges ahead, and to be able to help serve others by constantly praying for them is a gift I can share that is as priceless as the Lord’s sacrifice in itself.
