The Nature and Power of the Word of God

“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

God’s Word is at work in the world today. It is an active force. It governs the spiritual activity in the Universe. It changes things, especially when spoken and believed, both in the hearts of men and in their circumstances. God is watching over his word to perform it (Jer. 1:12).

God’s Word is compared to a seed (Luke 8:11; Mark 4:14; 1 Peter 1:23). This seed produces new life if planted well. Like seed, it is growing in hearts and multiplying and spreading all over the world today. Satan, his demons and antichrist people cannot stop the inevitable progress of this seed.

Every seed produces life after its own kind. The seed of God’s Word, if planted well in soft hearts, open hearts, will produce the life, character and faith of God in its hearers.

For hard hearts, the Word correctly applied will be like a hammer to break the hard heart open (Jer. 23:19).

The Word of God is compared to a fire. ” ‘Is not my Word like a fire?’, says the LORD, ‘And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?’ ” (Jer. 23:29). It can act as a fire (Jer. 5:14; 20:9). Fire spreads, gives light, warmth, energy and comfort – but it can also destroy. God’s Word destroys the power of evil as it is believed and applied. It can break Satan’s influence in our hearts and lives.

The Word of God is compared also to water (Eph. 5:26; Ps. 1:1-3). Water brings cleansing, refreshing, life and encouragement and satisfies the thirsty. The Word of God can do this for us also.

God’s Word is also compared a mirror which shows us our true spiritual state (James 1:23; 2 Cor. 3:18). It shows us how we need to be cleansed.

    I really like your story. I have a question. I want to rebuke and cast out demons on behalf of a friend who is a sociopath and in a recovery program for heroin addiction. His conscience has been sealed. Sociopaths have no conscience nor do they possess empathy. The demons created this mental illness and it is as evil as evil gets.
    Can you offer me advice on casting demons away from an unwilling person to at least unchain their free will so he can have the opportunity to choose Jesus.

    Hope you can offer me some advice.

    Thanks
    Michelle

    His name is Darren. He is 24 years old. He lives in West LA right now. He is in a very expensive program. His parents are not Christians. I believe i am the only Christian who has stuck their neck out for this guy. I can’t seem to walk away. i don’t want him to be separated from God.
