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.

    Scripture tells us that “eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are loyal to Him.” In the midst of all this evil there is GOD … in the middle of tares there is wheat … He provides and preserves His own. In this place He tests the hearts. Scripture tells us to be strong and have courage … the times are very dark but He gives rest to those who walk in His truth. The absolute truth is the key and we can only receive that truth through His Word; His Spirit within will illuminate it for us … then we all have the choice to obey or not to obey. The only thing that God can not do is over ride our wills … when we submit to GOD … resist the devil … he will indeed flee. In this thought we must also resist our desires and be separate.

    I am thinking about the King Jehoshaphat who aligned himself through marriage with evil King Ahab. He had the book of the law and although he sent its message throughout the land he himself did not heed the warnings. In the end GOD rescued him and scripture recounts his lesson for us to learn from. We can not partner with hypocrisy … with man made traditions and golden calves … many are worshiping demons and do not even know the difference.

    God always has a remnant who presently are being purified in the wilderness places. It seems in my own circumstances He is taking away more and more so that it is in Him alone that I depend upon. I do not understand His ways but I trust Him. Am I perfected yet … no but I am becoming and it is because of Jesus I still stand. The darkness is going to get more and more dark but in Jesus alone there will always be light. He is preparing Elijah’s for the time to come.

      ” I do not understand His ways but I trust Him.” In this statement lies the key, God bless you sister in your journey…………………bro Frank

    Thank you. I needed this reminder this morning. Indeed the days are very dark but He is light. He has drawn us through very deep waters to Himself. The homelessness, hunger and deprivation we endured as a family was to prepare us for this time. We will continue in this peace He has given us, focused solely on the Beloved. No matter what comes He still remains might to save BUT our hearts and wills must be continually yielded to Him. We cannot risk taking our own way for that is the way of death. No the Father knows what He is doing and we shall continue to trust, praise and thank Jesus for His wonderful deliverance.
