Wielding Your Sword
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11, KJV).
The mouth as we had already written to you about in the last articles, is a very powerful tool—It can bring upon one good and on another, doom.
Today, we will be seeing something a little bit different.
The Tongue vs the Word—Swords
A part of the mouth is the tongue, a long piece of muscular flesh used for tasting, and articulation of words, among other things. According to the University of Edinburgh, the human tongue is between 3.3-3.1 inches for males and females, respectively (Bradford, 2015).

Of all the parts of the body, it pleased God to have made the tongue in a sword-like manner. That should tell you how powerful that little piece of your body is.
There is a secret behind the tongue use that we men are yet to master. It is not an error that the tongues of fire appeared on the day of Pentecost and rested on the disciples. The very first part of their body that was revived and rebranded, was their tongues. The Bible still holds the record of the groundbreaking things that took place after that experience.
The coming of the Holy Ghost as the tongue of fire upon the men was to help them articulate their tongues in a heavenly manner. In the beginning, according to Genesis 1:28, God said “dominate…”. The man could not have dominated the earth until he had received the tongue of fire.
“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:28, KJV).
At the place of koinonia, a man’s tongue is coined with the tongue of the Holy Ghost, such that when you decree “let loose!”, it is so.
There are hidden manna in the word of God, the Spirit is birth through the Word of God. Jesus said, “my words are Spirit and Life” (emphasis, mine).
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life” (John 6:63, NASB).
At the place of discovery, the Spirit in the Word of God comes alive to man, such that the beholder is quickened internally and externally.
There is marination that every man must go through if he must fulfill the divine mandate of God. This can only be done through the word of God, as the Spirit is birth in you.
You can quote the scriptures all you want but nothing will move until the Spirit is birth in you. The Spirit and the Word are inseparable.
“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light” (Genesis 1:2-3, KJV, emphasis mine).
The Spirit moves, and your word is quickened, you behold the Word and your spirit is quickened—the Spirit and the Word are inseparable. These are hidden mysteries that can only be found at the place of koinonia.
