    My children and I just started a study on Revelation. I was amazed how many times just in the first two chapters John refers to the Sword of the Lord, (The Word of God.) Like Rev. 1:16, "And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword..." and Rev 2:12 and 16.

    And in Ephesians 6:17, "And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

    I have been taught that this means we need to know the Word of God and use it against satan, because it is a very effective weapon against his lies and tricks.

    I am curious how you use your sword and how it has it been effective in your life. I am interested in learning how you have been able to apply the sword of the Lord in your life.

    Thank you very much.

    OOPS! Help moderators! I did not mean for this to be in the debate forums, simply the Fundamental Baptist forum. What did I do wrong?

    I think in times of temptation or trials just knowing scriptures that apply to that situtation that I can quote to myself, meditate on. Gaining strength from the word of God to resist satan and his tricks.
    Thats just me, I'm sure there are better answers.

    You ARE in the Fundamental Baptist Forum! The two edged sword rightly divides the truth. If we know God's Word, we can use it to win spiritual battles, to test the spirits and be discerning.

    "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15

    Blessings,
