Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ
Paul was in prison and under constant guard when writing the Ephesians church. He was forced to stare at the soldier's armor day in and day out. He had an ideal picture of the armor needed by the Christian believer to combat the forces of evil.
The soldier's armor that Paul looked at day in and day out represented for him what the Truth for the Christian believer should represent.
The Belt of Truth.
The Christian in Complete Armour, Volume 2
The belt was used to hold the soldier's clothing next to his body. This kept his clothing from flapping about and allowed him freedom of movement. The belt was also used to strengthen and support the body and it helped hold the breastplate in place.

Twisting the Truth Participant's Guide: Learning to Discern In a Culture of Deception
God's truth is not truth individually or subjectively thought out.
God's truth is not truth as a man or a group of men see it.
God's truth is not truth that is found in a man's novel idea.
God's truth is not truth that is taught by religion.
All such truth is self-centered and restrictive. Such truth is only from finite man—a being so small, so impure, and so frail that he cannot possibly discover enough truth to embrace all men. He cannot discover enough truth to bring life to man, not eternal life.
What specifically is the belt of truth?
Seeing and Savoring Jesus Christ
What is God's belt of truth that the believer is to put on?
First, Christ is the truth. The believer is to put on Christ. What does this really mean?
It means that a man in Christ has been regenerated, renewed, born again. He is a man who has become spiritually minded. He is a new man created by Christ. He has been given a holy nature and an incorruptible life. He is opposed to the old man with a corrupt nature. He is a man who is...
The person is made into a new kind of person—a new man in God. Every person can begin life all over again; every person can have a new beginning, a new life by coming to Jesus Christ.
How is this possible? By the power of God. When a person believes in God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—really believes and entrusts his life into the hands of Jesus Christ—God creates the spirit of the person in righteousness and true holiness. God takes the faith of the person and credits it as the righteousness of Jesus Christ. God actually credits the person's faith as the perfect righteousness and holiness of Jesus Christ. Therefore, the person stands before God in the righteousness and holiness of Jesus Christ.
This is not all that God does. He does more marvelous things for the believer—all having to do with creating the believer into a new person.
- God quickens the spirit of the believer and makes his spirit alive. Whereas the believer's spirit was dead to God, God creates it and makes it alive to God.
- God causes the believer to be born again spiritually.
- God actually places His divine nature into the heart of the believer.
- God actually creates a new man out of the believer.
- God renews the believer by the Holy Spirit.
Second, the Word of God is truth. The believer is to put on the Word of God. He is sanctified by the Word of God.
