The double edged sword

Psalms 149:6-7
⁶Let the high praises (exaltations) of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
⁷To execute vengeance on the nations,
(To avenge the Gentiles)
And punishment on the peoples (the nations)

In other words:

With words of praise to God in their mouths and a razor-sharp sword in their hands, they beat the nations, taking revenge on hostile lands.

It is good to give glory to God.
But…
▪︎ We must not only have His word in our mouth;
we must also handle it.
▪︎ We should not only talk about it;
we must also do what it says,
we must also live by it.

Then, verse 7 teaches us, we will punish and defeat those who plan evil about His Kingdom and about us.
This beating is therefore done with the double-edged, razor-sharp sword. (Using the word of God). Compare this with Revelation 1:16

“out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword”

For your consideration:

▪︎ Do you pray (often) whether God wants to put an end to evil?
▪︎ Are you ready to fight against evil?
▪︎ What could you do?
