The Word of God

He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. Revelation 19:13

The flesh does not like to be cut up by the point of the sword. This could be taken a couple of different ways, but we are looking at the metaphorical one this time. The one that will in time be shown more real than the steel and skin version common to this world. We are looking at this one:

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

While our Lord Jesus works on us, cutting away the old sinful flesh, what can we do to help out in that which does us so much good? We can read the Book and follow the instructions of course. The Book we must read is His word, the Bible. All the instructions we need to follow are contained therein. We do not have to wait for Sunday morning to read His word, and we can wield this word of God in our defense. Paul passes along one instruction to do so in Ephesians 6:17 when he tells us to take up the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Ah, yes, that which our Lord uses to cut away the dying flesh of this world is also the sword we can wield against the forces of the evil one. A powerful and useful sword it seems. Indeed, so powerful is it that near the end, about the time the saints are gathered to be with Him, it is His name that comes to be known and called The Word of God.

Great and mighty is the Word of God, our Lord Jesus the Christ,
