Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The key to this verse is it is living and active (in spirit) many think it is only talking about texts on a page. If they think that, they are wrong and cannot know the Lord personally. In the past, I have been spoken to, by God on this very issue of being given this sword. Also, I once received a vision while in a church of this double edged sword piercing my soul, not once but twice, as a single cutting would have been too overpowering for my body to bare in power. These are spiritual things, and should not be shared with the natural man, nor cast before swine so they may turn and attack you. This is why I take a chance posting events like this on the net, or even sharing with “Church people who claim his name, yet do not walk with him, nor even know him! The Bible is not written to such individuals to comb through by intellect alone. Rather only the basic message of the Gospel should be shared outside a fellowship of true believers. Why? Primarily it is because Satan will twist the truths of God found only by abiding in Christ, to another Gospel using deceiving spirits.
