APOSOL Paul sei olketa Christian olketa olsem soldia wea join long wanfala faet. Iumi no insaed wanfala really faet, bat iumi insaed spiritual faet. Nomata olsem, iumi faetem olketa really enemy.

And tu, datfala belt fit for holem ap hevi bilong datfala samting for kavarem chest. Samfala belt garem tu olketa strong clip wea olketa hangem sword and naef for faet long hem. Soldia wea werem gud belt bilong hem, bae no feel fraet taem hem go for faet.

4 Olsem datfala belt, truth wea iumi lanem from Bible protectim iumi from olketa false teaching wea savve spoelem iumi. (John 8:31, 32; 1 John 4:1) And taem iumi lane for lovem truth from Bible hem bae isi for iumi karem datfala “samting for kavarem chest,” wea datwan minim for followim olketa standard bilong God. (Sams 111:7, 8; 1 John 5:3) And tu, taem iumi minim gud olketa tru samting insaed Bible iumi bae no fraet and redi for ansarem eniwan wea tok againstim wanem Bible teachim.—1 Pet. 3:15.

Bikos wei for laea hem wanfala weapon wea Satan iusim for spoelem staka pipol. Taem man laea datwan savve spoelem hem and man wea hem laea long hem tu. (John 8:44) So iumi mas traem best for no laea, nomata iumi no perfect. (Eph. 4:25) Diswan hem no isi. Abigail, wea eitin year, hem sei: “Samfala taem maet iumi tingse hem gud for laea, especially sapos datfala laea bae mekem iumi misstim samfala problem.” Bat why nao hem evritaem traem best for talem tru samting? Hem sei: “Taem mi talem tru samting mi garem klin konsens front long Jehovah. And parents bilong mi and olketa fren bilong mi savve olketa fit for trustim mi.” Victoria, wea 23 year, hem sei: “Taem iu talem tru samting and defendim biliv bilong iu, maet olketa bae bullyim iu. Nomata olsem, iu bae kasem gud samting, olsem wei for no fraet, wei for fren gud witim Jehovah, and olketa wea lovem iu bae respectim iu.” Tru nao, hem gud for evritaem “werem truth olsem wanfala belt raonem bele” bilong iu.

Truth wea olsem wanfala belt (Paragraf 3-5 storyim diswan)

‘SAMTING FOR KAVAREM CHEST WEA HEM NAO WEI FOR RAETEOUS’

6, 7. Why nao wei for raeteous hem olsem datfala samting for kavarem chest?

6 Wanfala type samting for kavarem chest wea soldia bilong Rome savve werem hem garem olketa longfala flat pis iron wea olketa bendim for raonem body for kavarem chest. Olketa iusim olketa huk and nara samting for pasim olketa iron hia long olketa pis leather. Antap shoulder bilong hem garem tu olketa pis iron wea olketa pasim long leather.

Nomata olsem, datfala kava protectim heart and olketa nara part long body bilong hem from sword or arrow.

7 Datfala tokpiksa barava fitim olketa raeteous standard bilong Jehovah wea savve protectim tokpiksa heart bilong iumi. (Provebs 4:23) Olsem wanfala soldia wea no laek for changem datfala iron for kavarem chest witim nara samting wea no strong, iumi tu no laek for changem olketa standard bilong Jehovah witim samting wea iumiseleva tingse hem stret. Savve wea iumiseleva garem no fit for protectim iumi. (Provebs 3:5, 6) Dastawe, iumi mas evritaem chekim sapos datfala  “samting for kavarem chest” hem stap for protectim heart bilong iumi.

8. Why nao hem gud for followim olketa standard bilong Jehovah?

8 Waswe, samfala taem iu feel olketa standard bilong Jehovah hem hevi tumas or mekem iu no free for duim wanem iu laekem? Daniel, wea 21 year, hem sei: “Olketa teacher and olketa skulfren mekfani long mi bikos mi followim olketa standard long Bible.

Samfala fren bilong mi start for tekem drug and olketa narawan finis from skul. Mi sorre tumas for lukim samting wea kasem olketa. Jehovah barava protectim iumi.” Madison, wea 15 year, hem sei: “Mi stragol for followim olketa standard bilong Jehovah and no followim wanem olketa fren bilong mi tingse hem gud.” Hao nao hem deal witim datwan? Hem sei: “Mi remindim miseleva hao mi witness for nem bilong Jehovah, and hao olketa temptation hia hem olsem Satan hem sutim mi. Taem mi winim datwan, mi feel hapi.”

Taem mi ting go bak, mi no savve why nomoa mi shame. Distaem mi hapi for preach long olketa skulfren bilong mi.”

11 Staka young wan luksavve sapos olketa prepare gud olketa bae feel free and no fraet for preach. Wanem nao iu savve duim for prepare? Julia, wea 16 year, hem sei: “Mi keepim pablikeson insaed basket bilong mi, and mi herehere long olketa classmate bilong mi taem olketa storyim biliv and tingting bilong olketa. Taem olsem mi savve wanem for duim for helpem olketa. Sapos mi prepare, mi savve story long olketa abaotem samting wea savve helpem olketa.” Makenzie, wea 23 year, hem sei: “Sapos iu kaen and iu lisin gud iu bae savve wanem nao samfala samting wea olketa fren bilong iu deal witim.

Sandol wea hem nao wei for talemaot gud nius (Paragraf 9-11 storyim diswan)

“BIG SHIELD WEA HEM NAO FAITH”

“HELMET WEA HEM NAO WEI FOR SEV”

15, 16. Long wanem wei nao hope bilong iumi hem olsem helmet?

15 Readim Ephesus 6:17. Helmet wea soldia bilong Rome werem hem for protectim hed, nek, and feis bilong hem. Samfala helmet garem handol wea mekem hem isi for olketa soldia holem.

16 Long sem wei wea helmet protectim  brain bilong soldia, “helmet, wea hem nao hope wea iumi garem for sev,” hem protectim mind and tingting bilong iumi. (1 Thess. 5:8; Provebs 3:21) Hope helpem iumi for tingim olketa promis bilong God and for garem stretfala tingting abaotem olketa problem. (Sams 27:1, 14; Acts 24:15) Bat sapos iumi laekem “helmet” bilong iumi for protectim iumi, iumi mas werem long hed, no karem long hand.

17, 18. (a) Hao nao Satan switim iumi for aotem helmet bilong iumi? (b) Hao nao iumi savve showimaot iumi no letem Satan for trikim iumi?

17 Hao nao Satan switim iumi for aotem helmet bilong iumi? Tingim wanem hem duim long Jesus. Satan savve Jesus garem hope for rulim olketa man long future. Bat Jesus mas weit go kasem taem wea Jehovah markem. Firstaem, hem mas safa and dae. So Satan givim chance long Jesus for rul stretawe. Satan sei sapos Jesus baodaon and worshipim hem, bae hem stretawe givim hem paoa for rul. (Luke 4:5-7) Long sem wei, Satan savve Jehovah bae givim iumi staka nambawan blessing long niu world. Bat iumi mas weit firstaem, and maet iumi need for deal witim samfala problem for lelebet taem. Dastawe Satan givim iumi chance for enjoyim laef distaem. Hem laekem iumi for aftarem olketa material samting and hem no laekem iumi for aftarem Kingdom firstaem.—Matt. 6:31-33.

18 Olsem staka young Christian, Kiana, wea 20 year old, hem no letem Satan for trikim hem. Hem sei: “Mi savve only hope for stretem evri problem bilong iumi hem Kingdom bilong God.” Hao nao disfala hope bilong hem affectim samting wea hem tingim and duim distaem? Hem sei tu: “Hope bilong mi for Paradaes helpem mi for luksavve olketa samting long world hem for lelebet taem nomoa. Mi no laek for trae iusim savve wea mi garem for aftarem staka selen and bignem long disfala world. Bat mi iusim taem and strong bilong mi for aftarem olketa spiritual goal bilong mi.”

Helmet wea hem nao wei for sev (Paragraf 15-18 storyim diswan)

“SWORD BILONG SPIRIT, WEA HEM NAO TOKTOK BILONG GOD”

19, 20. Hao nao iumi savve kamap gud long wei for iusim Bible?

20 Paul sei Bible hem olsem sword wea Jehovah givim iumi. Bat iumi mas lane hao for iusim gud datwan for defendim wanem iumi bilivim or for changem tingting bilong iumi. (2 Cor. 10:4, 5; 2 Tim. 2:15) Hao nao iu savve kamap gud long datwan? Sebastian, wea 21 year, hem sei: “Mi raetem daon wanfala verse long evri chapter taem mi duim Bible reading. Mi mekem wanfala list long olketa favorite verse bilong mi. Taem mi duim olsem mi minim gud tingting bilong Jehovah.” Daniel, wea iumi storyim finis, hem sei: “Taem mi duim Bible reading mi chusim samfala verse wea mi tingse hem bae helpem olketa pipol wea mi meetim long ministry. Mi faendem pipol barava interest taem olketa lukim wei wea iu barava tinghae long Bible and iu laek for helpem olketa.”

Sword bilong spirit (Paragraf 19-20 storyim diswan)

21. Why nao iumi shud no fraetem Satan and olketa demon?

21 Olsem iumi lanem long disfala study, story bilong olketa young wan hia showimaot iumi no need for fraetem Satan and olketa demon. Olketa garem paoa, bat paoa bilong olketa no kasem bilong Jehovah. And olketa no savve stap for olowe. Insaed wan thousand year rul bilong Christ, olketa bae stap long prison and no savve duim eni samting for spoelem olketa man and then bihaen olketa bae finis evribit. (Rev. 20:1-3, 7-10) Iumi savve long enemy bilong iumi, olketa nogud trik bilong hem, and goal bilong hem. Jehovah savve helpem iumi for strong for againstim hem.
