Because they are using the safety equipment required correctly.

We will see what are the safety equipment required for our survival.

First Equipment

THE ARMOR OF GOD, THAT YOU WILL FIRMLY AND RESISTANCE TO YOU WIN the devil's schemes

In the book of Ephesians we find this equipment (vs.11, 13) "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may stand against the wiles of the devil. Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. " Paul guides us, that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, is more against principalities, powers, the rulers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. If you want to win, you have to make use of this equipment. Because those who use it will overcome evil, and after having overcome all, remain firm and steadfast. His victory will depend on the correct use of this equipment. The Armor of God, it is a key to our victory and our survival. The apostle Paul compared the Christian's spiritual armor, the armor for military confrontations of the Roman legions. Each piece of Roman armor has its proper symbol and application in the spiritual realm. When Paul wrote to the Christians of the city of the Ephesians about the armor of God, he probably had in mind the image of a Roman soldier armor: harness, Sandals, Shield, Belt, Sword, and Helmet.

THE BELT OF TRUTH, THAT YOU WILL FIRMLY AND AGILITY TO YOU WIN THE ENEMY

(Vs. 14a) "You are therefore firm, Gird yourselves with the truth." Girt about with truth, and gird the loins with truth means: Being using the belt of truth. And what is the truth? Jesus said to his disciples (John 14:6) "I am the way the truth and the life" In other words, be with the belt of truth is you stand for Jesus, is that you have to accept Jesus and the salvation he has you offered. To overcome this earth, to win fights, trials the enemy you have to get this machine: "The belt of truth." The belt armor of the Roman soldier was about 15-20 cm wide, was leather, and all the armor was stuck in it. It was the belt that gave strength and allow the soldier to move with agility. Jesus, he will give you strength and agility to defeat the enemy. We will see some fundamental principles not to make use of lies.

First Reason: The Bible says that the devil is the father of lies. (John 8:44 c) "When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar and the father of lies." Here ay a very serious reason for you not to lie. Ie. If you make use of lies, you are becoming child of the devil, because if he is the father of lies.

Second Reason: He who makes use of lies, there is to be in the presence of God and in each. (Ps. 101:7) "dont stay in my house that uses fraud, which speaketh lies shall not remain before my eyes." My friend, if you make use of lies, get rid of it while the time if you do not see what is written in the book of Revelation. (Rev. 21:8). "All liars will be cast into the lake which burns with fire and sulfur, ie, spiritual death. (Rev 22:15) "were left were everyone who loves and practices falsehood. Our first barrier, our first defense against the wiles of the devil is the truth. Without it the other parts of the armor does not work. We also have to tell you the truth, whatever the cost, because the lie can not be the first resort. Over the first action is always to be the truth. The truth is the rock on which we build our lives. Who builds his life on lies, sooner or later will see it crumble and turn into rubble.

(Vs.14) "And you wearing the breastplate of righteousness." The breastplate of the armor of a soldier romanoera an important piece of armor warrior. It was usually made of two sheets of brass resistant flaps lined with leather. Served to protect the breasts and the backs of the soldiers. The harness serves to protect us from evil attacks that go straight to our heart, and our soul, our spirit. Only within the armor is that we are free of this type of attacks. Though you're with this protection: "The breastplate of righteousness" the enemy attacks will continue, but it will take effect. Why? Because Jesus is our breastplate of righteousness. (Jeremiah 23:6) "In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: this is his name, that will be called Lord, our righteousness." Wear the breastplate of righteousness means: Be assured, and the conviction that in Jesus we are free from all condemnation. (Rom. 8:1) "Now therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus."

He used to ward off the blows of the enemy and also to take shelter when the enemy archers desferiam a hail of arrows. The Romans could kneel on the ground and erect a wall of shields around them to block the flaming missiles. Inflamed darts of the wicked. Satan, he tries in every way to hit us. It can not always approach us because the angel of the Lord encamps around us and delivers us. (Psalm 34:7) "The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them."

Without faith it is impossible to please God, because it is necessary that he who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. "

Second dart: Fear. (Mt 14:30) "Peter, noting the strength of the wind, he was afraid and began to sink, and cried: Save me, Lord." Sometimes we are afraid, when we can not control a situation.

Third dart: Doubt. Satan, he will do anything for you to doubt, doubt what more? God's word, God's love. Doubt hinders the work of God in our lives.

He is always looking to bring our memory the recollection of our past sins and mistakes. With that its purpose is to steal our peace and trust in the Lord, and make us feel rejected by God.
