Sword of the Spirit

☆☆☆ Sword of the Spirit ☆☆☆

When Jesus was tempted by Satan, He used the Word of God to defeat him (Matt. 4:1-11). Paul pleaded wth the believers in the book of Ephesians to take “the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God” (Eph. 6:17) in their battle against Satan and his demonic assistants.

The Bible is able to establish us because it is inspired of God (2 Tim. 3:16). Make no mistake friends, the Bible is not simply a book of religious ideas or good moral advice; it is the very Word of God.

It is “profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).” It has been well said before that doctrine tells us what is right, reproof tells us what is not right, correction tells us how to get right, and instruction tells us how to stay right.

We must study (2 Tim. 2:15 KJV) the Holy book, with the help of the Holy Spirit, who will guide us into all truth (John 16:13). What He teaches us grounds us firmly in His Word and establishes us in the faith.

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
-John 16:13 KJV

A working knowledge of the Bible is essential for spiritual growth and stability. God’s Word is food to nourish us (Matt. 4:4), light to guide us (Ps. 119:105), and a weapon to defend us (Eph. 6:17).

“Thus saith the Lord!” is our sure foundation!

“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
-John 17:17 KJV

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, That I might not sin against thee.”
-Psalm 119:11 KJV

“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, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints…”
-Ephesians 6:17‭-‬18 KJV
