Armed with His Sword
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. (Matthew 10:34 KJV)
God had a specific purpose in sending His Only Son to this world.
God did not send Jesus Christ to visit this world and travel around site seeing through many beautiful areas found in this world.
Jesus Christ did not come to this world for the purpose of taking a vacation.
God sent His Son with a specific spiritual agenda to accomplish on the cross at Calvary. God could not have sent any other to do this spiritual work that Jesus Christ accomplished because it took the spotless Lamb, the One without sin, to be able to purchase the possibility of salvation through His shed blood for all.
Jesus Christ was the bearer of this sword. His sword brought division and strife to a world buried in sin. His sword is a essential piece of the battle gear which God inspired to be recorded in Ephesians chapter six necessary for having victorious spiritual battles while sojourning on this earth.
You can bear His sword today in the midst of many heated spiritual battles through having a personal relationship with God. Swinging His sword of Truth divides man away from the darkness of the god of this world and set apart unto the purpose of God.
