THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
Holy warriors are equipped with the armor of God. Part of
this is the sword of the Spirit. This sword is the word of
God. It is the Bible. It is indispensable in the spiritual
war that holy warriors are engaged in. “Indeed, the
word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged
sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and
marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the
heart.” (Heb 4:12). This sharp sword of the Spirit really

before you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” (Ps 19:15).
Only then can such warriors truly be holy.
