It's real easy to look at physical world around us and not see swords being used. To even find one it is often necessary to go to a museum. So what am I talking about?
The Word of God Do you know that Word of God is sword of spirit? We are told in Ephesians 6:17 that it really is. This truth is more powerful than we realize...
Trickery We find this verse in section that explains that we are to put on whole armor of God. He tells us to do this so that we are able to stand against wiles of devil.
The word "wiles" means 'trickery'. We wear whole armor of God to protect ourselves from trickery of devil.
Spoken Word Jeremiah 1:12 tells us that God is alert as He looks out for His word to do as His Word says. He doesn't sleep or avoid it in any way. He is alert and anxious to do what He said He would do.
The Word of God is Sword of Spirit. We are told things all day long that may or may not be true. We need to overlook this and realize that God never lies (Titus 1:2) and He speaks truth.
