For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
What separates The Bible from all other books? The difference is , The Bible is a supernatural book of the Living Word of God that reads you instead of you reading it. Why does The Bible offend so many people? Because when you read the Living Word of God it pierces your soul like a double edge sword.
From the outside The Bible just looks like another book written by 40 authors, but all Scripture is God breathed or inspired by The Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16) How did Moses know the creation of the world? Simple The Holy Spirit revealed it to him. How did King David and Isaiah fortell about Jesus Christ hundreds of years before he was born? Again all scripture is given by The Holy Spirit through man.
When you understand this, you understand the power of the Living Word of God. Jesus never combated people with physical violence, he fought evil with the truth of God. When Jesus spoke demons trembled and fell down at his feet, diseases are cured , prisoners are set free, the blind receive sight, the deaf begin to hear!
There is a reason Satan wants The Bible removed from everywhere, he knows the power of The Living Word of God. When Jesus was confronted by Satan in the wilderness, he used The Word of God to defeat Satan! If your not strapping a Bible with you, you are going into the battle without your sword, preach the living Word of God and watch how it changes lives in Jesus Name Amen
