Shoes of Peace (Shalom)
Destroy the authority that establishes chaos. In this illustration as part of the Armor of God, the Shoes of Peace indicate we need to to be walking or pursuing. If we do the walking, God will destroy the chaos ahead of us.
|The ‘Shin’ represents two front teeth and can mean sharp, eat, consume, separate, or destroy.|
|The ‘Lamed’ is a picture of a shepherd’s staff. The shepherd used the staff to exercise authority over the sheep to direct or lead them. It can mean teach, lead, yoke, move forward, or authority.|
|The ‘Vav’ represents a tent peg or nail and means to secure or hook. But it can also simply mean peg or nail.|
|The ‘Mem’ illustrates water or waves. As a nomadic people, the Hebrews did not understand the waves or waters of the ocean. So the letter came to mean chaos, mighty, or blood.|
