The Weapon against Evil

There are various names given to the rider of the white horse in Revelation 19:11-21; Faithful, True, Word of God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The weapon used is the Word of God which is described as a sharp double-edged sword.

We face a war between the forces of good and evil in our daily living. Think of the entertainment industry. Here’s a post from Proverbial Thought about the conflict we constantly have to contend with in a society that praises vulgarity, violence, and vice.

We do not go alone so never fear. Trust in God in rainy days or the heat of a pressure filled day or whatever each day brings. Don’t be shaken. God’s Word is like a sword to protect us against the enemy. Meditate on and memorize the Word to sharpen your Spirit from the attacks of evil.

Here’s one strategy to help memorize scripture:

  1. Read through the scripture aloud
  2. Copy the scripture by hand
  3. Create a short outline of the scripture
  4. Have someone else read the scripture to you
  5. Write down the first letter of each word to help as a tool to memorize

The world says to give up and accept defeat; look for pleasure and live it up right now but Faith says believe in a better day and look forward to a day when there is more joy and peace than we can imagine.

The world says to do what benefits us in the short term but Truth says to be honest with ourselves; call sins by their true names and receive cleansing through Jesus.

The world says you have only one life to live but the Word of God says this is just a short time in our life because our time with God is forever.

    Very true! Our sword is the only ‘offensive’ part of our armour 😉 I thought of this the other day and tried to think of any sport where a team wins by just being on defense…I love the tips, especially writing it down. We need to keep our swords sharp.
    I am a big fan of idex cards too….
    Good post 🙂
