"For the word of God is alive and full of power, and sharper than any two-edged sword; piercing even to the dividing line of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and it is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Christ is The Word of God. When we read that scripture, we should put Him in that place...
For Christ is alive and full of power, and He is sharper than any two-edged sword; Christ pierces even to the dividing line of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow; and He is a Discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
That's exactly the way it is, beloved. The Word is a PERSON, not a thing. Christ Jesus is the two-edged sword of the Living God. Christ Jesus is Who the Father speaks of when He says, in Isaiah 55:11 -
"So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me
void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Christ Jesus went forth from the Father as His living word - as His Word made flesh.
"... Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of Me) to do Your will, O, God." (Hebrews 10:7)
And that is exactly what He did. Christ Jesus did not return void unto the Father, but He accomplished that which pleased Abba, and prospered in all God set before Him for the redemption of man. HALLELUJAH! Don't you just love it?
Jesus is alive and well and full of Power! And don't even think about fooling Him - for He IS "Discernment", sharper than any two-edged sword. He knows where our soul ends and our spirit begins... and clearly, truthfully, and justly identifies every thought
and intent of our hearts. Who is like Him? Who is like God our Father? Who is like sweet Holy Spirit?
NO ONE, that's who... No one.
"Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account."
