 Sword of the Spirit – The Word of God –

412px-Sword of st.FerdinandSword of St.Ferdinand“The word of God is very necessary, and of great use to the Christian, in order to his maintaining the spiritual warfare and succeeding in it…Scripture arguments are the most powerful arguments to repel temptation with. Christ Himself resisted Satan’s temptations with, It is written” (Mt. 4: 4,6-10).13

 

“The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (He. 4:12).

 

Christians are not left without a weapon to cut through what threatens our lives.  Scripture rings true that God supplies all our needs (Phil. 4:19)—and in this life we NEED a means of defending ourselves (2 Co. 10:4).  A doubled edged sword cleaves the opponent no matter what direction it is thrust—an effective defense when armed with strength, skill and a determination not to flinch or retreat.  

The Word of God is a defense that can never be destructed or overcome.  It is the Living Word that endures forever (1 Pe. 1:25)!  Regardless of godless men and the devil’s attempts, God’s word remains untarnished, fixed, sure and will continue to remain to all generations (2 Pe. 1:19; Ps. 100:5; Is.40:8).  “The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure” (Ps. 111:7). What God establishes cannot be destructed (Ro. 11:29).  His Word preexisted mankind’s creation and is made manifest by the life of Christ—Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh (Jn. 1:1, 14).  Christ was before all things and has put all things under His feet (1 Co. 15:27).  

God’s Word is a treasure to be hidden within our hearts enabling us not to sin against Him (Ps. 119:11). When God speaks—even the wind and the seas obey Him (Mark 4:35-41).  His word does not return void (Is. 55:10).  He provides us with benefits and a security of gaining a return when His Word is applied to our lives (1 Ti. 6:17).  God cannot lie and must remain true to His promises (Ro. 15:4; Nu. 23:19; Ro. 6:18).    

“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.  The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing t

he heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes.  The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much find gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.  Moreover by them is Thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward” (Ps. 19: 7-11).
