12 For the word of God is quick [living], and powerful [active], and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner and judge of the thoughts and intents of the heart.4 [Paul is describing the power that works in a man to bring him to the rest; which power is the Word of God, Jesus, the power of God. In the beginning was the word, and the word was God. John 1:1. And he was clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God...And he has on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev 19:13,16. I am he who searches the minds and the hearts. Jer 17:10, Rev 2:23. And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword; and his countenance was as the sun shines in his strength. Rev 1:16. Jesus, the word of God is alive and lasts forever. 1 Peter 1:23]
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God [the word of faith in your heart and mouth].
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword; and his countenance was like the sun shining at full strength.
16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. [Notice, in the Book of Revelation, Jesus emphasizes the necessity of repentance from all sins; but the Christians of today think they have no need to repent, presuming that they are excused from all the warnings of Jesus and all the Bible's stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation; they also overlook that every man will be judged on his works and words. So today's Christians, listening to the words of the scriptures, hear them like a beautiful song that is sweet to their ears, but they fail to apply the commands to themselves — always thinking the warnings and commands apply to bad people, not righteous believing people like themselves; so they do not obey the commands of repentance from sin that they hear or read, remaining slaves to sin; and then they are banned from heaven when they die.]
|2 Thessalonians 2:8|
8 And then that wicked one [the man of sin with Satan's spirit within you] will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth, and destroy with the brightness of his coming.
|Revelation 19:13,15,21 |
13 And he was clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God.1 [Click to see the 125 scripture verses that state: "the word of the Lord came, speaking" and "the word of God came, speaking."]
15 And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations. And he shall rule them with a rod of iron. He treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him who sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth; and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
