The armor of God is an attitude of placing so much emphasis and focus on how your actions affect your eternity, and remaining so aware of God’s eyes upon you that it controls your behavior. You don’t do what’s wrong because you’re closer to God than that. A separation between negative impure people and positive pure hearted people is taking place. Take sides to be a positive, pure being of love, standing close to God . Doing the work of Angels by being kind and helpful. Determine to hold that position until you exhale your last breath. Then you are in armor.
Here are relevant Bible verses about the armor of God:
"He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head; he put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and wrapped himself in zeal as a cloak."
" But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. "
" For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart."
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God , praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel,for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak."

Having a strong foundation in the sound doctrine of Christ Jesus with the countinous renewal of the mind to know, understand and acknowledge the pleasant perfect will of God. Salvation unto repentance in Christ Jesus that results to an intimate relationship with God. One is unconformed and unbent to the pattern of this dark world; firmly rooted in Christ Jesus not swayed by any seducing, accursed gospel/doctrine of devils.
2.The breastplate of Righteousness.
The redemption and justification from all sins in Christ Jesus . No condemnation will have no effect as whom Christ Jesus sets free is free indeed.

The full knowledge of The Truth that is light. The light that exposes each and every subtle wile and intrigue.
4.The shoes of the Gospel of peace.
Readiness to carry out the commission of Christ Jesus of preaching the Gospel of Salvation; snatching souls from hellfire. Never being ashamed of the Gospel for it is the power of God unto Salvation to anyone that believes for the Jew/Gentile. Suffering (even unto death) for the sake of the Gospel of Christ Jesus.
5.Shield of Faith.
Apostle Paul focused most, if not all, his letters and teachings on the subject of faith.We may come to find that if you lack faith, then we do not have the essential key to progress into the next Kingdom. Faith could be that vital.
