Ephesians 6:17—“And receive the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which Spirit is the word of God.”
Note 1 on helmet says: “Receiving the helmet of salvation is for covering our mind, our mentality, against the negative thoughts shot in by the evil one. Such a helmet, such a covering, is God’s salvation. Satan injects threats, worries, anxieties, and other weakening thoughts into our mind. God’s salvation is the covering that we take up against all these. Such a salvation is the saving Christ whom we experience in our daily life (John 16:33).”
Cross-reference “a” on helmet directs us to these verses:
Isaiah 59:17: “Thus He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon His head; and He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing and wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.”
1 Thessalonians 5:8: “But since we are of the day, let us be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love and a helmet, the hope of salvation.”
