Twelve Symbols # 9

Praise the Lord Saints!  We have made it to Symbol 9, which is sword. 
The sword in reality is your “spiritual weapon.”  Ephesians 6:17 (ASV)
…  And take the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.  The sword was the soldier’s only weapon, so God’s word is the only weapon, and is omnipotent against Satan.  It is used to defensively fend off Satan’s attacks and offensively to destroy the enemy’s strategies.  It is the truth of scripture and your outward weapon.


Hebrews 4:12 (ASV)

…  “for the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”  The Word of God is comforting and nourishing to the believers.  But it is a tool of judgement and execution for those who have not committed themselves to Jesus Christ.  Here it is used as the inward judge of man’s heart.  Let us walk around with godly intentions and a heart like Jesus’.
