This week we looked at the fact that the armor of God aids us in our sanctification process by making us conform more to the image of Christ. One of the topics in contention in many churches today is to what extent do we have to trust in Jesus to start that process. Can we become Christians by just believing certain truth claims and “trying Jesus” or do we have to believe and declare Him “Lord”? Pastor John Barnett covers the topic of Lordship salvation.

Pastor Barnett teaches that a Christian’s new identity is that of Christ’s. We are call to live out the “new you”. By putting on the belt of truth and the breastplate of righteousness we can use the tools that God gives us to look more like Christ.

Probably one of the best historical fiction movies ever made when someone hears the word “freedom” is probably Mel Gibson’s Braveheart. An inspiring movie where we see a normal man rise up and fight against oppression for him and his people. Unfortunately, most of the story is just “based on a true story”.

Christians understand and can testify that we gain freedom in Christ. We are freed ultimately from our sins and then several secondary factors that Pastor John Barnett will discuss. And unlike Braveheart, the source of freedom isn’t “based on a true story”. It is the story.

This week’s Q&A was selected because of how interesting a topic it is. Pastor John Samuel Barnett covers the history behind the one language everyone spoke at the beginning of creation and why God then confused it. The historical proofs are worth the watch alone.

The third benefit for wearing the helmet of salvation as presented by Pastor John Samuel Barnett is freedom in forgiveness. All…all…ALL…every single one…all of our debts are removed by the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior on the Christ. ALL! And in that, we don’t have to experience guilt ever again.

Another benefit from wearing the helmet of righteousness is that when we are turned from darkness to light by God we are given a new heart. The hardened, closed stoney one is softened, opened, and made of flesh. We go from hopelessness to hopefulness when we place our faith in Jesus Christ. Pastor John Samuel Barnett shows how God transforms us.

Here’s one from the early days of Pastor John Samuel Barnett’s Q&A series. The great thing is that when they are tied to the Word of God, the answers don’t change. So as we approach Resurrection Day, what are we looking forward to? What will the New Heavens and the New Earth look like?
