Today’s edition of Triumphal Feast is the concluding message of our series on Paul’s Epistle to the Church at Ephesus.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 6:16 “The Shield of Faith” pt. 1

Ephesians Series • 26. The Shield of Faith Ephesians 6:16 (November 8, 2020) One of the oldest tactics of warfare has been the use of flaming arrows to attack the enemy from a great distance. The biggest advantage to this tactic is that the general does not put himself or his troops in harms way while he inflicts damage to his enemy. This tactic is also used by our adversary, the devil. He shoots at the children of God from a distance and very often does quite a bit of damage to those who are alone and wandering away from the fellowship of the saints. The best defense against this dangerous assault is regular worship and church fellowship. Just like the “testudo” defense of shields used by the Roman army, the shield of faith of the church provides a dome covering where the members protect one another.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 6:15 “Feet Shod with the Preparation of the Gospel” pt. 1

Ephesians Series • 25. Feet Shod with the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace Ephesians 6:15 (November 1, 2020) It is not just the preacher’s job to prepare to preach the word. It is the duty of all children of God to prepare to receive the word, apply the word, and live the word. Scripture tells us who we are and where we stand. It also tells us Who God is and what He has done for us. When we see the marvelous grace of God in our lives we want to follow Him. The Bible shows us exactly how to do that as well.

Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 6:14b “The Breastplate of Righteousness” pt. 2

Ephesians Series • 24. The Breastplate of Righteousness Ephesians 6:14b, pt. 2 (October 25, 2020) Today’s episode of Triumphal Feast is part 2 of the message about The Breastplate of Righteous found in Ephesians Chapter 6. We will begin with an example of Ananias and Saphira to show that our outward righteous acts are not enough to justify us before God. We must have Christ righteousness counted to us to stand before an holy God. Blessed is the man that knows what he has done but also understands that it is not counted against him
