The King’s Sword

January 28, 2012

The King’s sword discerns and separates good from evil.
The King’s sword executes judgement.

The King’s sword is discernment, knowledge and wisdom
—> knowledge of God’s Word, and wisdom to apply it.

-1Ki 3:9,24;2Chron 1:10;Ps 149:6-9;Heb 4:12

The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “when I will send a famine through the land—
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water.

—> a famine of hearing the words of the LORD. -Amos 8:11

What is deception?
Isn’t it believing a lie because the truth is not perceived – intelligently heard?

Why is there a shortage of ears to hear the words of the Lord{truth}?

We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you have become dull of hearing. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. -Heb 5:11-14

Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. -Mt 22:29

There is no shortage of bread{truth} —>solid food.

Ears are dull from drinking only milk
From thirsting for water{spirit} without eating solid food.

Dull ears do not know how to use the King’s sword
They are unable to distinguish good from evil or discern truth
They are unable to test the spirits.
-1Jn 4:1

People will stagger from sea to sea And from the north even to the east; They will go to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, But they will not find it. -Amos 8:12
