USING THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD TO STOP SMOKING!
Thank you for visiting the Armor of God Stop Smoking Ministries Home Page.
Please follow the links on this page to learn how I broke a 33 year addiction to cigarettes, without any major withdrawal symptoms, using common sense and the articles of faith expressed by St. Paul in Ephesians 6:10-18, the Armor of God verse. This is a story not of a Bible-thumper, but of a "Quiet Christian" and a renewal of spirit. I am proud to say the Armor Of God Stop Smoking Ministries Home Page has had visitors over 100 countries around the world.
The use of tobacco, whether by smoking or oral ingestion, is a destructive addiction. Society as a whole has assigned the polite misnomer of “habit” to the use of tobacco; however, the proper term is “addiction”. No ifs-ands-or-buts, if you are a tobacco user, you are a drug addict, just as I was for 33 years. Not only was I a smoker and a nicotine addict, but I was fairly obnoxious about my smoking. I belonged to “smokers’ rights” organizations and ranted and raved to other smokers about the attempted social engineering of anti-smoking groups.
Like Saul on the road to Damascus, I knew who I was, what I was doing and where I was going. Also like Saul, something unexpected happened to me as I traveled down my own “road to Damascus”. Unlike Saul, there was no great flash of light, nor was I blinded, but the result was the same. In His own quiet and gentle way, the Lord spoke to me. He provided me with a way to break the back of an addiction that had held me in bondage for over 33 years. There is absolutely no question in my mind that the Armor Of God Stop Smoking Method was divinely inspired. I humbly offer you my experiences in victory over nicotine addiction.
Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV)"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the BELT OF TRUTH buckled around your waist, with the BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS in place, and with your FEET FITTED with the readiness that comes from the GOSPEL OF PEACE. In addition to all this, take up the SHIELD OF FAITH, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the HELMET OF SALVATION and the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is the word of God. And PRAY IN THE SPIRIT on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."
