Revolving Sword

Sword of fire

Everything that has value and is precious, needs to be kept safe, to prevent loss, theft or any damage.

If one places their money in the bank, jewellery in a safe, an important object of value in a special place, what should we do with our Spiritual life, our Salvation?

We also must protect and safeguard it, don’t you think so? Look to the following Bible Scripture.

Genesis 3:24

“()and a revolving sword of fire east of it, guarding the path to the Tree-of-Life.”

God himself placed a  revolving sword of fire, to keep safe the Tree-of-Life.  Let me breakdown what that means in our spiritual life!..

  • The Sword of Fire symbolises our faith. It’s by holding on to a faith intelligent and obedient to God’s word, that we will be able to keep our Salvation. The sword is to cut everything that comes against our spiritual life, so we can maintain our sanctity and holiness and obedience before God.
  • Revolving because we cannot stop using it. Our faith needs to be constantly in movement, so that we can close all the gaps, for evil not to enter in our lives e.g. Cut bad thoughts, malice in the eyes, grudges, hatred, pride, materialism, greediness, gossip, lies, etc..
  • Guarding the path to the Tree-of-Life. This path is very straight and narrow. We must strive to get there and be aware that this path is constantly under assault and  threat. Therefore we need to be vigilant and sober in order no to be taken by surprise.

    Thanks for sharing Pr,

    So true everything that has value is precious especially our Faith.
    It needs to be protected as the devil will always look for opportunities to weaken our Faith. So Faith in Action daily is the key in Big things as well as the small when we put in to practise that’s when we see results.

    From Faith to Faith

    something that came to my mind while reading and thinking about this post, was what jesus said if anything cause you to sin cut it off.

    Our weapon(sword) is our faith, i can see why the sword would be an example of how our faith should be.

    Sword for the offencive

    Constant movment: we need to have a active faith.

    The fire not only protects but its the sign of an active faith.
