THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT 1



“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

Ephesians 6:17 (KJV)



If you have been following this discussion on the armor of God, I believe your understanding of the various armor pieces and their function is taking shape and getting richer.

The believer in Christ is both a citizen and a soldier of the Kingdom. In the Kingdom of God, there are no civilians.

And the adversary, though he is defeated and disarmed, consistently strategies and attempts to deceive the saints in Christ.

Yes, the believer has the victory over the devil because of what Jesus achieved in His resurrection. However, it is important for the believer to daily walk in that victory.

As deceptive as the devil has always been, he makes believers doubt their identity and victory in Christ Jesus.

This is why you have to intentionally put on the whole armor of God.

You put on the whole armor of God to wrestle against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

You don’t wrestle with these forces for victory. You wrestle with these forces from the place of victory.

You will be able to withstand in the evil day with the following:

* Belt of truth

* Breastplate of Righteousness.

*  Shoding of your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace

* Shield of faith (with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one)

* Helmet of salvation

God has given believers more than enough armor pieces that in every way the believer shall walk in victory.

As part of the list of the believer’s armor, there is also the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT.

“Take…the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” Ephesians 6:17 (NKJV)

Paul the apostle, didn’t hesitate to be direct with what the Sword of the Spirit represents.

It is the WORD OF GOD!

In every battle, there are weapons used offensively and others used defensively.

Interestingly, the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God is used both defensively and offensively.

The Sword of the Spirit is the revelation of the knowledge of God in your heart. By the revelation of the knowledge of God, you wage war and exercise your victory in Christ.

With the word of God, you are able to stand and also advance offensively against the rulers of darkness.

Hallelujah!

DIG DEEPER
(Isaiah 49:2; Hebrews 4:12; Revelation 1:16; 2:16; 19:15; Deuteronomy 33:29)
 
WE PRAY
 That we will increase in the revelation of the knowledge of God to wage and exercise our victory in Christ.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Psalms 7 – 11
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:

– As I feast daily on the word, I increase in the revelation of God.

– I esteem the word of God in my life.

 
– By the revelation of the knowledge of God, I wage war and exercise my victory in Christ.
 
Oh glory to God!

The sword of the spirit is both an offensive and defensive weapon.
The revelation of the knowledge of God in my heart is the sword of the spirit.
I wage war with the sword of the spirit, as I wage war with the revelation of the knowledge of God in my heart.

With the sword of the spirit, I break through the defenses of the adversary in order to fulfill the command of my master, just as the three mighty men of David broke through the garrison of the philistines to fetch water for their master. With the sword of the Spirit, the Lord is doing valiantly by my hands; I am taking kingdoms for my master Jesus.

Glory to God!

The Sword of the Spirit, which also speaks of the revelation of God’s word in my spirit cannot be overemphasised.

In the day of adversity, that revelatory word in a man’s spirit sustains him. Oh Glory! I put on this armor at all times.
