“The sword of the Spirit is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:17
The LORD is calling His true followers to turn His sword – His Word – on their own hearts in order to circumcise them of all evil (Jeremiah 4:4, 14; 17:9; Hosea 10:12; Isaiah 58; Romans 12:2; Ephesians 4:23-24; Philippians 3:3; Colossians 2:11-12, etc.).
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
Exercising mastery over the sinful inclinations of the flesh is essential to overcoming victory (1 Cor. 9:27; 15:31; Rom. 6, etc.).
