the whole armor for the healed: truth

Putting on the whole armor of God is a key command that enables believing healed Christians to stand firm against further relapses of bodily, mental and mood symptoms. Jesus’ truth sets believers free from the bondage of sins and diseases. Jesus has paid the price: His blood and His body. (1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4-5)

Today we read some Bible verses on the first piece of the armor: the belt of truth. (a brief note from this watchman giving an unlocking key for each verse is given in italics in brackets after each verse).

John 8:32 [Full Chapter] And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (the key: know the truth. The enemy is a liar and uses lies to rob us of our health and life)
John 1:14 [ The Word Becomes Flesh ] And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.(Jesus is the key: He is the truth.)
 

John 3:21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” (key: do the truth. Truth involves faith in action. Truth means light, the opposite of darkness.)

John 4:23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. John 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” (Key: God wants worship. He only requires two worship ingredients. Spirit and truth. )
John 5:33 You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. (Key: witnessing Jesus means witnessing truth. Belt of truth works with the readiness to share the gospel of peace.)
John 8:31 [ The Truth Shall Make You Free ] Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. John 8:32
And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (Key: Knowing and keeping Jesus’ word means freedom from the bondage of sin and  the power of death. Belt of truth works with the breastplate of righteousness. )
John 14:1 [ The Way, the Truth, and the Life ] “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (Key: Truth is the only way to God and His life. There is no truth but Jesus and all that He is: His life, His word, His divine nature. Belief in Jesus means belief in all that He says He is. All that the Bible says God is. )
John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 15:26 [ The Coming Rejection ] “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. John 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. (Key: Truth works together with the Holy Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit can guide us into all truth. Belt of truth requires the working of the Holy Spirit in us to be effective. )
John 17:17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. John 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth. (Key: Only God’s word is truth and truth sanctifies those who believe in Jesus. The belt of truth works with the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. )
John 18:37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” (Key: Truth requires the working of faith. Without mixing the hearing of the truth with faith, unbelievers receive no benefit. The belt of truth becomes life to us only when we hold up the shield of faith.)
John 19:35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. (Key: we can only witness what we believe to be the truth. Only when we have truth in us, we can share and bless others similarly.)
