Hebrews 4:12 says” For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
What is it about the Word of God that makes men go crazy? Just the mentioning of Jesus name people are ready to attack you as if you was the one who wrote the book. God tells us right here that His word will cut and pierce the soul and spirit of a person and even their thoughts which is where our intentions come from the heart.
So basically Jesus is saying my word is forever sharp and no matter what you try to say against it His word will cut your word and doctrine down to nothing. Mans words and doctrine can not hold up against God’s word and this is why the enemy comes attacking us and we think it’s people but it’s those spirits in high places which we war and fight against. Not flesh and blood, although flesh and blood might be standing right in your face.
And so what I have learned over the years is when people want to come and argue over God’s word with their doctrine of what they believe God’s word says I give them the Word of God and keep moving.. When I look back in the Old Testament at how Pharaoh prayed to his god thinking his god was going to help him with the plaques and when his son was sick his god failed him…Pharaoh refuse to listen to Moses about God Almighty, when I think back on the story of when Elijah and the False Prophets was on Mount Carmel which is found in 1 Kings 18 God had answered Elijah’s prayer and rain finally came after 3 and ½ years. God showed everyone that He is the One True God. He alone is to be worshiped.
And still to this day thousands of years ago people are afraid and that is why they attack the word of God, it’s the best-selling book on the market, it is always refreshing and it never changes and this is why man doesn’t like the word because it shows man just how wrong they are in their sin. If you are like me and so many others who have come to embrace the word of God you won’t look at the Word and want to attack it you will want to have more of it in your life. So that you can be Christ like..
And remember let’s not be so hard on those who attack God’s word because Jesus said it’s not you who they are attacking it’s who you and I represent, that they attack.
As my dear mother use to tell us siblings all the time, when the attacks comes your way it’s a sure sign that you are being obedient to Jesus, because satan doesn’t bother those who are listening to satan. “And no matter how bad the attacks feel to you don’t you dare give up, just drop to your knees and watch the salvation of the Lord come to your aid…
