Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
1 Samuel 17:54 (c) This may be taken as a type of rejecting ability, skill, gift and manners of another person, rather than being one's own self. When we serve our Lord we should not try to be like another by imitating his ways, manners, virtues and powers.
Isaiah 22:8 (c) This armor represents human powers made by human instruments for human purposes and relied upon instead of the armor of GOD which only He can provide.
Luke 11:22 (b) In this place the armor represents Satan's devices, arguments and reasonings which he gives to his children in order to keep them from being touched by the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of GOD. Satan fills his followers with his own line of reasonings to keep them from becoming Christians. The Lord JESUS and the Holy Spirit who are stronger than Satan take away this armor and make way for the truth of GOD to enter the soul of the sinner.
Romans 13:12 (b) Here the word is used for the protecting influence of light in the life of the children of GOD. A light is kept burning over the cash register to keep away robbers. The Christian should walk in the light of the Word of GOD in order to defeat Satan.
2 Corinthians 6:7 (b) Here the armor represents a life of righteousness toward those wham we meet and toward GOD. Those who live right have no fear of accusers. They are protected from the attacks of the enemy.
Ephesians 6:11 (b) The armor mentioned in this passage presents aspects of CHRIST:
(1). We are to put on the Lord JESUS CHRIST ( Romans 13:14).
(2). CHRIST Himself is the truth ( John 14:6).
(3). CHRIST Himself is our righteousness ( 1 Corinthians 1:30).
(4). The Gospel of peace is concerning His Son ( Romans 1:1-13) who is the king of peace ( Hebrews 7:2).
(5). Our faith is in the Lord JESUS CHRIST ( Acts 20:21).
(6). CHRIST is our salvation ( Luke 2:30).
(7). The sword is the Word which comes from the mouth of our Lord JESUS CHRIST ( Revelation 19:15).
The helmet protects our thinking. The breastplate protects our feelings.
