Scripture reading: Revelation 19:15

Revelation 19:15 talks about the “sharp (two-edged) sword” that came “out of His mouth.” It would seem that we have seen this phrase somewhere else. Let us check the passages in which this phrase has been written, for this will give us an understanding of the context.

Whenever the words “two-edged sword” are mentioned, it always speaks of judgment. Psalm 149:5-7, “Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people. Because we are not carnal, we will receive the spiritual picture that God is showing. He is showing the Word of God executing judgment upon the people; the Word of God becoming the Law in the earth.

We have different laws written in thousands and millions of law books all over the world; laws overlapping laws. God’s Law will be the only law. I look forward to the millennium, in not many years to come, when Jesus Christ and His saints will rule the earth and all the politics will be thrown in the trash can. All that men are going on with will be put aside. I do not care whether it is Christian politics or whether it is worldly politics. God is going to cast them all aside. The Word of God will be the judgment, and the administrators will be the sons of God who reign and rule with Christ.

Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any TWOEDGED SWORD, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Revelation 1:16, “And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp TWOEDGED SWORD: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.”

The phrase in Revelation 19:15 which says, “he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron” really should read “he should smite the nations: and he shall shepherd them with a shepherd’s staff of iron.” The “rod of iron” means “by spirit and not by flesh.” A staff of wood would be flesh, and a staff of iron would be spirit. He is going to “rule them” by His Spirit and by the Word of God.

(Excerpt from The Book of Revelation, Volume 3, pages 80-81)

Thought for today: God’s Law will one day be the only law. As the Word of God will be the judgment, let us live it and speak it.
