How Does This Relate To Us Today?
Although we used the imagery of the high priest throughout this article to picture the armor of G-d, we have to admit that most of us aren't Levitical priests and likely none of us is qualified for the role of high priest.
Most of us aren't Roman soldiers, either, so how do these items described in Scripture relate to us today? What are they picturing for us?
As we found over and over again in each piece of the armor, we should "clothe ourselves with Messiah." He is Truth, He is clothed with righteousness, through Him we have peace with G-d, He is our strength and our shield, and He is our Salvation/Yeshua. His Word is the sword with which we can do battle against our adversaries, either inwardly or outwardly. He is our timeless armor for He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
By clothing ourselves in Him and walking as He walked, we can "do all things through Him who strengthens" us (Philippians 4:13).
