YAHWEH, MY PROTECTOR - 2. MY SWORD

Updated: May 19

“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 (NIV)


Samurai sword

INTRODUCTION


Authority was regained, 

no more under the snare of death are we kept. 

Yeshua, our mighty sword 

pierces through all barriers with His love, mercy, and grace;

He divides every cord.


He defeats the enemy with the Truth,

the only authority left on this Earth. 

Forgiveness we have obtained, 

and cleansed of our sin we have been. 

Through Yeshua, now adopted we are;

royalty - sons and daughters of the God above all Gods,

the Mightiest of them all.


THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT

We do not battle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and evil powers in High places (Ephesians 6:12). Carnal weapons have little effect if any. No, the Sword of the Spirit is our true weapon against our enemy. A sword that is so sharp it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. 


It is no other than the Word of God, that searches and judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Illuminates and brings into light our motives and deeds. The educator who teaches us right from wrong. That leads us to true righteousness. And it is no other than Yeshua Himself. 


The sword of the Spirit

He is the sword that protects us against lies and strongholds that try to keep us bound and in sin. “I can not do this. I can not overcome it. I can not love those who have hurt me.” True, on our own we can not overcome. On our own, we can not turn the other cheek. On our own, we are not capable of such love. 


But no more are we alone. 

Now we are in Christ, Messiah and He in us. 

He is our sword that protects us. 

Our identity in Him is part of our key. 

Who we are and are destined to be. 


He regained authority over mankind from the hands of the enemy after it fell into the hands of satan in Eden. The Kingdom of Death and destruction satan established with it here on Earth. But Messiah defeated him and regained authority back. No more are we powerless against the spiritual forces coming against us. Yeshua delegated His authority to His faithful disciples and all who are in Him now have access to that authority. 


Of course, as any other good soldier, one needs to first become sharpened in using it. We need to practice in wielding it. One can only have authority over an area in their life externally if they have first won the same battle in their heart internally. Once that is established the enemy has no more open door to walk through. No more access to do their evil to you.   


And it all lies in loving God, ourselves, and others surrounding us. Love is the sword that rips through all barriers, and releases us from all bonds, chains, and ropes. Perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18). It silences all lies of the enemy.


CONCLUSION 

Yeshua is our Sword. The sword of the Spirit which penetrates even to dividing of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. He protects us against lies and strongholds that try to keep us bound and in sin. But we do need to practice in wielding it. One can only have authority over an area in their life externally if they have first won the same battle in their heart internally.


Application

Thank you Heavenly Father for being our Sword that cuts apart all lies that try to deceive us. Thank you for Your love that casts out all fear and silences the mouths of our enemies.
