Helmet of Salvation –
1 Th. 5:8-9).“But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hat not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (
“The helmet secures the head. A good hope of salvation, well founded and well built, will both purify the soul and keep it from being defiled by Satan, and it will comfort the soul and keep it from being troubled and tormented by Satan. He would tempt us to despair; but good hope keeps us trusting in God, and rejoicing in Him.”11
For generations, mankind has utilized numerous styles of head protection. Today, a helmet is designed in various shapes to meet standards specific to deflect and absorb dangerous force. God provides Christians with a helmet of protection suitable to withstand any threat to our “head”—the portal of our spiritual minds, intellect and soul—Salvation in Jesus Christ.
“In Is. 59:17 Jehovah is represented as arming Himself for the defense of man, and among other articles He puts on is “a helmet of salvation,” seeming to teach that salvation is the crowning act of God.”12
-“He is become my salvation” (Ex. 15:2). “For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people” (He. 2:16-17; Read He. 2:9-18).Christ brought this “crowning act of God” in humility by His stepping into His creation as a man-
In order to put on the helmet of Salvation, each of us must recognize our need for redemption from sin, yearn for reconciliation with God and “put on” Christ through confession, profession and belief (Ro. 10:9-11). Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ (Jn. 14:6; 2 Co. 5:18). Christ is “the Author of eternal salvation unto them that obey Him” (He. 5:9).
Salvation cannot be earned, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ep. 2:8-9). Yet, Christ would have us come to Him as willing, faithful individuals as no one else can make the decision for us to trust and obey Him“…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure” (Ep. 2:12-13).
“Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord…Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Ti. 1:8-10).
