Ephesians 6 tells us to, "Put on the full armor of God... And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  Sword... the Hebrew word is Machaira. It inflicted more damage than larger swords and varied in length from 6 to 18 inches.  It was a common sword used by Roman soldiers in hand-to-hand combat. To care for the Sword, the soldier wiped dry and oiled before storing it. The soldier also sharpened it.  This can be applied to us and the Word of God. Precision comes by knowledge and understanding of specific truths (John MacArthur)  Know when to use the Word of God as a weapon.  Arise you Prince and Princess, you Child of God, you Mighty Warrior anoint your shield and take your sword!!!
