The Sword...

"Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the firey darts of the wicked, and take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:17

The Word of God is an offensive and defensive weapon wielded against the wiles of the devil. He flees in the face of the wisdom of Christ.

A life steeped in Scripture is able to expose the enemy’s half truths.

The enemy lures a Christian to think the Lord will protect him, even if he acts irresponsibly.

But, God is not backed into a corner and forced to rescue a fool, to tempt the Lord is to dishonor Him.

Power is reserved for the Righteous One who reigns over all!

Scripture makes us wise into salvation and wise in the ways of the Lord.

What the enemy means for harm, God turns into good.

The Bible gives us strength for the journey, because walking with Jesus is an everyday exercise.

Those who are committed to Christ do not coast, but make our boast in the Lord as we busy ourselves with His work.

Spiritual games like playing church are replaced by sincere service.

Wisdom from His Word, moves us to make a difference.

"For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart." Hebrews 4:12

The Word of God gives us courage and conviction to engage the enemy.

As we study the Bible, apply its principles, so you can overcome the spiritual principalities that war against us.

Almighty God as our absolute authority!

Educated fools attempt to marginalize the Bible as an out of date history book, full of inconsistencies, but on the contrary, it is the living, breathing, inerrant word of the Lord.

The written Word of God in its entirety, is the inerrant, and is the hand written signature of God which is infallible and sufficient authority for our faith, Christian living, embracing all matters which the biblical authors address, and believe that they are supreme and final authority and life, as do I.

"We have also a more sure Word of prophecy, whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. for the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."
2Peter 1:19-21

Scripture exposes the enemies lies.

What do you have infiltrating in your heart, mind and soul?

Is your spiritual sword sharpened by success and suffering, or is it dulled by disillusionment?

Do you daily feed your faith?

Read a chapter in Proverbs based on the day of the month, or memorize verses in Psalms.

Keep your mind engaged in eternal truths, and you’ll successfully attack temporal untruths.

The Bible is your baseline for beliefs and behavior.

"Every Word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him." Proverbs 30:5
