It's real easy to look atrepparttar 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 thatrepparttar 137684 Word of God isrepparttar 137685 sword ofrepparttar 137686 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 inrepparttar 137687 section that explains that we are to put onrepparttar 137688 whole armor of God. He tells us to do this so that we are able to stand againstrepparttar 137689 wiles ofrepparttar 137690 devil.

The word "wiles" means 'trickery'. We wearrepparttar 137691 whole armor of God to protect ourselves fromrepparttar 137692 trickery ofrepparttar 137693 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 isrepparttar 137694 Sword ofrepparttar 137695 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 speaksrepparttar 137696 truth.

How could a Roman soldier come to be regarded asrepparttar essence of England? Letís find out.

There is little information available about St. George and what is available is wrapped in myth and legend. What we do know is that St. George wasnít English and that he probably was a Roman soldier. He is known as a great crusader,repparttar 137539 slayer of dragons and rescuer of maidens. It is believed he was a Christian martyr in what is today known as Turkey. He was executed duringrepparttar 137540 3rd century in Palestine.

Inrepparttar 137541 6th century, tales of St. Georgeís heroic deeds began to circulate. Duringrepparttar 137542 12th centuryrepparttar 137543 legend expanded to encompass his slaying of a dragon that had been plaguingrepparttar 137544 countryside for years. Whenrepparttar 137545 dragon was dead, St. George is supposed to have rescued a lovely princess. Some researchers feel thatrepparttar 137546 legend is based onrepparttar 137547 Greek myth of Perseus andrepparttar 137548 rescue of Andromeda from a gigantic sea monster. Others feel that St. George did indeed rescuerepparttar 137549 kingís daughter after slaying some manner of vicious beast.
