Ephesians 6:11 (Amplified Bible)

6:11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

V. THESIS:

Thank you FATHER GOD, for the whole armour of GOD that I have put on myself, no one bears them for me, I bear them all myself to protect me from spiritual enemies of this world. I put on and wear JESUS CHRIST as the Armour of GOD, so I am protected from the spiritual enemies in this world. The LORD JESUS CHRIST goes before me, around me, and in me as my Armour of GOD.

Ephesians 6:11-13 (Amplified Bible)

6:11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil.

6:12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

6:13 Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [of danger], and, having done all [the crisis demands], to stand [firmly in your place].

VIII. MAIN BODY:

Armourbearer, armour-bearer or armor-bearer came from the Hebrew word "naw-saw', naw-saw'" meaning: (Reference: Strong's Hebrew Dictionary)

A primitive root; to lift, in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively, absolutely and relatively: - accept, advance, arise, (able to, [armour], suffer to) bear (-er, up), bring (forth), burn, carry (away), cast, contain, desire, ease, exact, exalt (self), extol, fetch, forgive, furnish, further, give, go on, help, high, hold up, honourable (+ man), lade, lay, lift (self) up, lofty, marry, magnify, X needs, obtain, pardon, raise (up), receive, regard, respect, set (up), spare, stir up, + swear, take (away, up), X utterly, wear, yield.

So in the Old Testament, we see an armour-bearer can also fetch for his master like a dog.

1 Samuel 20:35-40 (Amplified Bible)

20:35 In the morning Jonathan went out into the field at the time appointed with David, and a little lad was with him.

20:36 And he said to his lad, Run, find the arrows which I shoot. And as the lad ran, he shot an arrow beyond him.

20:37 When the lad came to the place where Jonathan had shot the arrow, Jonathan called to [him], Is not the arrow beyond you?
