THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 
2 Cor 5:21 NIV

…by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 
2 Cor 6:7-8  NKJV

… not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.  Titus 3:5-7  NKJV

For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.
Rom 5:17  NKJV

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
and every tongue which rises against you in judgment
you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me," Says the Lord.   Isa 54:17  NKJV

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness… Isa 61:10  NKJV

 For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit, through whom also he went and preached to the spirits in prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also — not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a good conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God's right hand — with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.   1 Peter 3:18-22  NIV

If you have missed any of the teachings on The Armor of God, 
it is strongly recommended that you listen to them, meditate on them 
& put the principles learned into action.
