Jesus has given us spiritual armour and each part is Himself - "put on Christ"
Belt of truth - study and living by the truth of His Word - His Spirit of Truth who is The Name and Power of Jesus Christ we go in His Name and or we go In His Spirit He puts super on the natural
Breast plate of Righteousness - righteous actions holy actions - The righteousness of Christ Jesus is Himself in His Holy Spirit
The shoes of peace - walking in the knowledge of truth of The Word and knowing we have peace with Him - of Peace and Counselor Spirit of Jesus Christ
The shield of faith - staying in His presence, Him/Word centered, focused and in the renewed mindset of what The Word says - The Lord Himself is our shield in the person of The Spirit of Christ Jesus
The helmet of salvation - Jesus is The Name Salvation and it is available to us at any onset of desire or temptation; knowing He opens our mind greatly to receive Himself and His power with Counsel Might and Skill to rule by Himself - The Spirit of Christ Jesus
Refusing to use the armor and stand in it we can expect the enemy to keep their fort fortified and them attacking us. We can expect them to lie by telling us we will always have a bent towards same sex attraction, that we must listen to these carnal desires and live it out either in thought or in word or in action. If we refuse to walk in the truth of each piece of armor how are we going to overcome the lusts of homosexuality without being drawn to partner with these rebellious spirits?
The enemy knows and our soul knows that thoughts trigger feelings and feeling trigger actions "as a man/woman thinks in his/her heart so he/she is" (Proverbs 23:7). Look we will be deceiving ourselves and depriving ourselves of the joy of our salvation, of the Love of God, the Love and life of Jesus His ministry and gifts and the intimacy with and workings of Himself in His Holy Spirit when we refuse to use and stand in His armour or stand in Him or walk in Him/in The Spirit.
Pursuing a life not of restoration healing and sanctification but a life of the flesh you will have veils come over your understanding, your heart hardened along with demonic deception and infiltration. You will find with every thought you will not be able to recognise yours from theirs so you will marry them up with feelings to think you are the old you so you will desire its demands of lusts.
What do you want a life in agreement with the natural sinful man/woman and the nature of the fallen angels or the truth of The Word Himself. If He said He can heal then it is as plain and as simple as that - He can heal. Physical emotional He is Able to change a heart, change orintation just as much as He can change your desire to stop stealing stop acting out in anger stop being afraid and full of fear.
Let Him Covenant you, let Him put His skirt over you and give you the life He died to give you. It will happen, you are in the process of restoration and you will one day cry out "just give me Jesus" AND "flee from me you evil doers and you spirits of darkness I have found my love and my Love has all that I need."
Just follow The Truth Himself, He dresses you every day and He will lead you as a Shepard leads His flock in and through all weather conditions to supply all you needs that you most assuredly shall not want and cry out "just give me Jesus."
Yes Lord just give me Jesus.
Be blessed and be a blessing
