The sword which penetrates the soul.

Posted by appolus on September 27, 2019

Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul.(Jer 4:10)

Let all men be liars and let our great and mighty God be true. The people of Jerusalem rested on the promises of God yet ignored the conditions upon which those promises were made. People in general hate conditions, is that not true? For example, did Jesus not tell us by the Scriptures to be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication and thanksgiving to let your requests be known unto God and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hears and minds through the Lord Jesus Christ? What a glorious promise yet it comes with a condition does it not? Be anxious for nothing. Let your prayers be framed by a thankful heart in all that you do and pray, then, and only then will the promise of God come to pass in the heart of the saint. Let not any man or woman expect to know anything of this peace unless they, by a conscious act of their will in obedience to His Word and His command, lay down that anxiousness.

Should those in Jerusalem expect to be surrounded by the peace of God when they willfully and deliberately ignored the commands and the directions of a Holy God? Should Christendom expect to see the promises of God come to pass in their lives when they live in direct violation of God’s word and His warnings? Or should they not rather experience a sword that pierces through their existence and penetrates into the deepest parts of their soul? The prophet Isaiah had the wherewithal to cry out to a Holy God that he was undone, that he was a man of unclean lips who dwelt among a people of unclean lips. Yet in our day and age of once saved always saved, cheap grace for salvation and hyper grace that has replaced sanctification, we expect the peace and the promises of God in our lives. God forbid. We serve a Holy God.

The religious structures and the denominations who have thrown off the truth of God, who walk hand in glove with a Godless generation who gleefully violate Gods word, still expect to walk in and be covered by the peace of God. It shall not be so and they will be pursued by a sword that penetrates their very core. And with a rage and an anger that matches Saul as he tried to pin David to the wall, they will, with their troubled spirits and souls,lash out at those who do walk in the peace of God, who do walk according to His statutes. Who do walk in a peace that surpasses all understanding. The beauty of their holiness will reflect about their enemies wickedness. Their obedience will reflect upon their disobedience. The genuine saint of God is called to be a witness who testifies, by his walk, against the false professor, the religious man and the sons of disobedience.
