Power in Gods written Word.
Of all the weapons a Christian believer has, I consider the written Word of God as the most powerful. If applied, it reacts like a nuclear bomb. It destroys all enemy forces. Below I give 7 reasons why the written Word of God is so powerful.
- It is from the mouth of God Himself.
2. It is alive
It is written:
“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
3. It is like a very sharp double-edged sword
“12 For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged [a]sword, penetrating as far as the division of the [b]soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 AMP
4. It is feared by the Devil and ALL evil spirits.
This is one of the supernatural weapons the Devil and all evil spirits fear most. Jesus used this very weapon to send the Devil fleeing! In the spirit world, as soon as you say: “It is written…”, all demons will flee!
5. It performs miracles.
When you speak the written Word of God with the authority of the Holy Spirit, it will perform miracles. This is exactly what happened in the case of Moses as he faced Pharaoh:
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now hear this: I make you as God to Pharaoh [to declare My will and purpose to him]; and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet. You shall speak all that I command you, and your brother Aaron shall tell Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go out of his land” Exodus 7:1-2.
6. It activates God
When you speak the written Word of God with authority, it will move God and prompt Him into action on your behalf.
7. It activates God’s Angels.
The language that God’s Angels understand is when you quote the Word of God. They immediately swing into action to act when they hear someone quoting with authority the written Word of God.
