[QTVOTD] Time to sharpen my Sword…

“And the beast was seized and overpowered, and with him the false prophet who in his presence had worked wonders and performed miracles by which he led astray those who had accepted or permitted to be placed upon them the stamp (mark) of the beast and those who paid homage and gave divine honors to his statue. Both of them were hurled alive into the fiery lake that burns and blazes with brimstone.  And the rest were killed with the sword that issues from the mouth of Him Who is mounted on the horse, and all the birds fed ravenously and glutted themselves with their flesh.” Revelation 19:20-21 ->me: This is so final – Just before these verses there is an angel that calls all the birds of the air together to be ready for “God’s great feast”.  Then it talks of a ‘Braveheart’ like moment where the opposing armies face each other for war.  Then these 2 verses – notice how no battle is spoken of actually occurring…at one moment they are facing each other down and then next ‘the beast and his false prophet are seized and overpowered’…and then all of the rest of the armies of the earth are killed by ‘the WORD of God’ -> Jesus.  When God is ready to dole out justice, His action is swift.  When He goes before me I have nothing to fear – satan has no power to himself.  What he has is only what God allows him to have, and only for a time.  What is even more crazy is that this power spoken of here is something I have through the armor of God -> the Sword of the Spirit (God’s Word).  I have not memorized any new verses lately (sharpening my Sword before battle); something I plan to change starting today.
