Today I saw in a Vision a Double-Edged Sword.
Did you know, Child of God, how that Sword of the Spirit is forged?
Our Father infuses His STRENGTH, His supernatural “metal” into that Sword. And I saw “metal” spelled “METTLE.”
The definition of “Mettle” is : “VIGOR and STRENGTH of Spirit, STAYING QUALITY, exceptional QUALITY of character; Courage.”
When you use the double edged Sword of the Spirit, when you speak His Word, God’s Vigor and Strength, His Character, His very DNA comes to fight on your behalf through the Spirit of God.
It slices through the atmosphere and destroys the works of the devil! Listen to this, Beloved, when God speaks His Word, it puts a sharp edge on one side of The Sword, then, when we speak His Word back to Him, we put a sharp edge on the other side of the Sword.
Wow! The original meaning of the “double edged sword” was, “the two mouthed sword!”
“Beloved. You are no longer in defensive mode but by the Grace of God, you are on the offensive.
For though you walk in the flesh, you do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of your warfare are not carnal, but mighty through your God to the pulling down of strong holds.
I have given you an offensive weapon. It is the mighty Sword of the Spirit. When I spoke The Word, one side was sharpened and when you speak it back, the second edge is forged.
We are a Team, My Warrior. My Word cuts through the atmosphere and all the works of the devil are destroyed.
My Sword cuts through the lies and fears and doubts. I AM He with seven stars in My right hand and out of My Mouth proceeds a sharp two-edged Sword.
Speak My Word when you are attacked and confronted by the enemy. My double-edged Sword casts down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and brings into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
So My Word spoken from your mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it.
I AM the Word, Beloved. My Word is your Sword. It is ALIVE and ACTIVE. It divides the soul and the Spirit so that fear will no longer have a hold on you and you will be able to step forward with the Boldness and Courage of a Lion.
You are bone of My Bone and flesh of My flesh. You have your Father’s DNA. You are a new creature by the Blood of Jesus so that you now walk in the Spirit. Whom shall you fear?
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Word will never pass away. If your God be for you who shall stand against you, My Warrior?
My Sword of the Spirit shall demolish every stronghold, every plan of the enemy, and every word spoken against you shall be utterly cast down. No one can curse what I have blessed.
This is how you fight your battles. You are an OVERCOMER by the Blood of the Lamb and the WORD of your testimony.
I AM the God who cannot lie! By Myself I have sworn; Truth has gone out from My mouth, a Word that will not be revoked: Every knee will bow before Me, every tongue will swear allegiance.
I Declare the end from the beginning, and ancient times from what is still to come.
I say, ‘My Purpose will stand, and all My good pleasure I will accomplish.’
Lift up your Two Mouthed Sword, My Warrior! It is made of Heavenly Metal! NOTHING can destroy it!
Let the high praises of your God be in your mouth, and the Two-Edged Sword in your hand. Your victory is in Jesus’ Name!
This is how you fight your battles! You are MORE than a Conqueror through Him who loves you!
I AM your praise and your God, Who shall do for you great and awesome wonders that your eyes will see!
Yes! Today, you shall stand in faith and see The Salvation of your God!”
METTLE : Vigor and strength of spirit; Staying quality; Stamina, quality of temperament or disposition; the exceptional quality of one’s character. Strength of spirit, courage
