Why Armor Bearers?
The name itself was a blessing as the leadership of Abundant Harvest Fellowship headed by Pastor L.A. Lopez planned the launch. They hoped to find a new name that would embody the new generation of youth ministry today. In a time when morality, ethics and desire to build up ones family are labeled as ancient; AHF desired to change the genome of youth ministries and give it a new face. A face who cares for their parents, who shines the power of God in their lives and who are known to bear much fruit as they live a lifesong of praise for the King of Kings- Thus the Armor Bearers was born.
Two Particular verse came to mind upon being blessed with the name, the first on is found in 1 Samuel 16:21-22 21 David came to Saul and entered his service. Saul liked him very much, and David became one of his armor-bearers. 22 Then Saul sent word to Jesse, saying, “Allow David to remain in my service, for I am pleased with him.” which shows us the importance of an Armor Bearer and Ephesians 6:10-18 10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 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. 13 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. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 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 Lord’s people.
In these two passages, we focused on the idealism found in Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he grows old, he shall not depart from it.” We focused on the importance of instilling Jesus into the hearts of the youths, thus entrusting to them the Armor of God; that though they face adversity, trials and tribulations- They will stand firm, knowing that greater is He who lives in them than the one who is in the world. Thus when trouble comes, wear the armor, bear it and stand firm. Hold fast and focus on God as we anchor ourselves to Him alone. For in these trying times, God is our only hope, our only joy and our only peace. Thus we ought to trust in Him, as Armor Bearers; standing as a beacon of God’s light to their family, their schools, their communities, and our country.
Armor Bearers Outreach:
Recently, The Armor Bearers; by the grace of God and His goodness have planted an outreach that meets up each Friday to cater to the youths of this nation and truly make a difference by preaching the Gospel thus transforming lives by drawing more people to focus on God. By God’s great faithfulness; Armor Bearers Taguig was born. As the outreach grew, we saw the great harvest in Napindan, Taguig where by the direction of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit; we hold the Armor Bearers Jr. Youth Service each Friday to impact the young ones who seek God while pressing on with the Armor Bearers Youth Ministry in The Place, Quezon City every Sunday after Main service. God has been so good as He has drawn many to His banner as we witness the changed lives in our brethren as they stand intentional in all things, living by Faith and exuding God’s excellence in their school life, family life and each aspect of their existence.
Thus God is doing a great work as we focus on God alone; pleasing Him with our lives as we suit up and done the Armor of God and raise a generation of believers who would stand as Armor Bearers for our King.
