“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword”

Today’s devotion comes from Zechariah chapter 5.  Here is a link to this chapter –

I quote only the following verses.

“Then I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold, there was a flying scroll.  And he said to me, “What do you see?”  And I answered, “I see a flying scroll;  its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits.”  Then he said to me, “This is the curse that is going forth over the face of the whole land;  surely everyone who steals will be purged away according to the writing on one side, and everyone who swears will be purged away according to the writing on the other side.  I will make it go forth,” declares the LORD of hosts, “and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name;  and it will spend the night within that house and consume it with its timber and stones.”  Zechariah 5:1-4.


“Take a scroll and write on it all the words which I have spoken to you concerning Israel and concerning Judah, and concerning all the nations, from the day I first spoke to you, from the days of Josiah, even to this day.  Perhaps the house of Judah will hear all the calamity which I plan to bring on them, in order that every man will turn from his evil way;  then I will forgive their iniquity and their sin.”  Jeremiah 36:2-3.

“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;  so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”  2 Timothy 3:16-17.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”  Hebrews 4:12.

“Is not My word like fire?” declares the LORD, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?”  Jeremiah 23:29.
