Is not my Word sharper than a two edged sword that cuts through bone and sinew? Have I not given you the sword of my Word to wield for such a time as this? Will you take the sword that I have given you and use it to push back the darkness? Advance My Kingdom. This is not a time to shrink back, but it is a time to advance. Advance!
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been subjected to violence, and violent people have been raiding it.
