Do you wonder where Armor bearing fits In the modern day Church? Yes. No worries. That was one of my 1st questions to the Holy Spirit myself. He showed me. May I share it with you through this q-a session?

Question: Where does armorbearer(s) or armorbearing fit in the New Testament church? I would feel my ministry as an armorbearer is validated if I could answer that question for myself and those that ask me. Although my service is coming from my heart, I still feel defensive when asked this question. --Name Withheld.

Response from Earma: I'm so glad you asked. I don't mind when people ask because it is the same question Varn and I had when God called us as armorbearers. There are 2 scriptures in the New Testament that especially validates our ministry as armorbearers.

The first one is: "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles...helps, governments, diversities of tongues. --1 Cor. 12:28"

The second one is: "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are varieties of ministries and the same Lord. And there are varieties of administrations, but the same God, who works things in all persons...1 Cor. 12:4-7."

There are different administrations of the gifts and all kinds of ministries but the same Lord. Armorbearing is an administration of the ministry of helps. I cover this topic fully in my book: In the Spirit of Armorbearing, chapter two "Fulfilling Your High Call to Ministry" and chapter three "Anointed to Serve". I encourage you to take full advantage of the resources now made available to us as armorbearers through Terry Nance, myself and others. After gaining a revelation of your place as an armorbearer you will never feel defensive again about this question.
Now let's pray: Father, you said if any of us asked for wisdom that you would give it to us liberally without finding a reason not to. I pray that you give ---- a spirit of wisdom and revelation concerning armorbearing that they may effectively support your man/woman of God in these last days. Not only that but they will have a ready answer for the hope in them because of Christ and the ministry that you have given them. In Jesus name I pray.

What do you do if you are called to serve as an armorbearer, but the ministry at the church only functions as security?
