Is the pen mightier than the sword?
Not my Sword.
“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
How much can a person exegete that scripture? It says it all, no twists and turns. The Bible is the basis of everything; it’s the way of the Cross, the way of Salvation.
“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints – and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel…” Ephesians 6:17-19
God never meant to bring us to a place of not being prepared to do battle with this world. He gave us the tools that we need to bring tranquility to those that are in turmoil, and boldness to those that have less than none. We are meant to be His, armed and ready for battle.
