This armor and these actions are in the imperative mood and in the active voice. This means they are temporal actions, practical, part of the Christians personal character. The Christian either does this or does not, they either have the armor or they do not, they are either spiritual winners or they are not.
These are not positional verses referring to positional righteousness as in Romans 4:22-5:2. This is temporal righteousness.
This armor refers to the Christian's ethical behavior.
