In Revelation 1:16, the Apostle John describes his vision of Jesus on the Isle of Patmos. He saw Jesus as having a sharp two-edged sword coming out His mouth. That sword—the all-powerful and mighty Word of God—is ours to use in defense of our rights as born-again children of God. According to Hebrews 4:12, Amplified Bible, the Word is alive and full of power, sharper than any two-edged sword, for the penetrating and dividing of soul and spirit, joints and marrow.
If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, withersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
