FOR THE WORD OF GOD IS QUICK AND POWERFUL, AND
SHARPER THAN ANY TWOEDGED SWORD
 
In the book of Hebrews, we read For the word [Greek, logos; i.e., Christ] of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints
and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that
is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have
to do.  Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of
God, let us hold fast our profession (Hebrews 4:12-14).
 
In verse 12, “word” is translated from the Greek word “Logos,” which does not refer to the bible [as many believe], but to Jesus Christ, who is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. These verses also refer to his and him, the great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God.

"And the third day there was a marriage in Cana
of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both
Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And
when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto
him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman,
what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith
unto you, do it"
 (John 2:1-5). 





 
THESE FILTHY DREAMERS DEFILE THE FLESH, DESPISE DOMINION,
AND SPEAK EVIL OF DIGNITIES
 
Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it
was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend
for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men
crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly
men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God,
and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once
knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first
estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under
darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the
cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going
after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal
fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and
speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil
he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation,
but said, The Lord rebuke thee. But these speak evil of those things which they know
not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt
themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily
after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These
are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves
without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose
fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves
of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the
blackness of darkness for ever"

(Jude 1:3-13).
