Gird your Loins with Truth

This phrase appears in the middle of the well-known passage on spiritual warfare in Ephesians Chapter 6. Paul uses the imagery of the Roman soldier which would have been familiar in those days of the Roman Empire. But what does it actually mean? Sadly some versions of the Bible have wrongly translated it to “with the belt of truth buckled round your waist”. This completely changes the intended meaning so ironically the Bible version is NOT imparting to us the TRUTH!  The enemy deceives us and hides the truth through wrong translation of scripture. Loins and waist are different parts of the body.  Loins are the lower central part which includes the reproductive organs. The armour protects the most vulnerable parts of the body. A girdle is very different from a belt. The solider needed a girdle to protect his private parts. A belt round the waist would offer no protection at all! The enemy wants to attack the loins, not the waist. Spiritually speaking this can refer to both men and women. The womb has been desecrated resulting in the loss of God’s army on earth. Approximately 20% of all pregnancies in Great Britain (excluding spontaneous miscarriages) currently end in abortion. (Source:  Vasectomy puts men at risk of many diseases.  Hebrews 7:10 says Levi was in the loins of his (great grand) father Abraham when he paid tithes to Melchizedek, even though he was not yet conceived. God sees the future generations. We need to know the Truth so that we will not be enslaved or deceived by the world’s system.
