Excerpt: Here we have the sixth and last piece in the Christian?s panoply brought to our hand--A SWORD; and that of the right make--?the sword of the Spirit.? The sword was ever esteemed a most necessary part of the soldier?s furniture, and therefore hath obtained a more general use in all ages, and among all nations, than any other weapon. Most nations have some particular weapons or arms proper to themselves; but few or none come into the field without a sword. A pilot with out his chart, a scholar without his book, and a soldier without his sword, are alike ridiculous. But, above all these, is it absurd to think of being a Christian, without knowledge of the word of God and some skill to use this weapon. The usual name in Scripture for war is ?the sword.? ?I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,? Jer. 25:29; that is, I will send war. And this because the sword is the weapon of most universal use in war, and also that whereby the greatest execution is done in the battle. Now such a weapon is the word of God in the Christian?s hand. By the edge of this his enemies fall, and all his great exploits are done. ?They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony,? Rev. 12:11. There are two observables we may take notice of, before we fall to the closer discussion of the words. The first from the kind or sort of arms here presented for the Christian?s use. The other from the place or order it stands in.
