This teaching is dedicated to examining some of the practical applications that an Armorbearer/Adjutant of Christ or one who has the calling of Armorbearing should clearly understand because these practices will make things run smoothly while "Guarding The Anointing" on that pastor. And serving as leaders, it will help bring discipline to the ministry and to the leadership inside the House of GOD as well as when you travel outside of the domains of your local church setting. Now whether your Pastor is a local church leader only or they have a traveling ministry, these practices should be in place. In biblical days, an Armorbearer was one who actually carried the shield and armor of the king as he went into battle, often acting as his personal assistant. For example, King Saul had several Armorbearers assigned to him; so today, in the Body of Christ, we continue to need our spiritual armor and those who are anointed to "Guard" it in the spiritual realm. The Ephesians' writer commands us to put on the full armor of GOD so that we can take our stand against the devil's attacks; spiritual or physical!!! Just as much as our early century counterparts, we who have been anointed in the ministry of an Armorbearer of Christ, are to suit up in the Armor of GOD and "Guard the Anointing" of GOD'S Messenger in the battle of faith. The term Armorbearer was originally translated from the Hebrew word, nasa, meaning to figuratively or literally "lift up," "support" or "simply help." On occasion, theologians translate the word "help" from the Hebrew word, nasa; and in light of these defining terms, we can see an Armorbearer is one that "helps" or "supports" the vision of that pastor during the times of battle. In the Body of Christ, an Armorbearer of Christ is one "anointed" by GOD to "guard the anointing" on that man or woman of GOD by serving and helping them in life, ministry, and especially in the fight of Faith. In essence, an Armorbearer of Christ is called to make sure they are attended to, ministered to, cared for, helped, to be of use, to assist, to benefit, to promote, to support, to make easy for, to nourish, and to encourage the pastor. Furthermore, the attitude and mindset of an Armorbearer of Christ is one of servanthood because the mindset of an Armorbearer of Christ is to do whatever it takes to serve and support the pastor; and operating under the anointing of an Armorbearer of Christ can be described as operating in the principles or pervading qualities of servanthood, commitment, attentiveness, support, help, loyalty, and faithfulness. Armorbearing in the attitude of service is not just the performing of humble tasks but is an effort to serve Christ in the Kingdom of GOD. JESUS said, "The servant of all is the greatest of all." Among my favorite examples are the great men in Old Testament Scripture, many who were faithful armorbearers before their public ministry. King David, and King David's mighty men, Elisha and Joshua exemplified the anointing of an Armorbearer of Christ in excellence; even Elisha's assistant, Gehazi, offers us an example of what we do not want to do as an Armorbearer of Christ. One need not think that the LORD GOD only called Armorbearers of Christ or helpers to assist in the ancient battles.
