The main reason why God send forth His word to come to us is to be clean and bear fruit.
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
God as a husbandman or a farmer, brings the word of God which is the sword of the Spirit to the farm (vienyard) and works in it.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
His purpose for His children in the church, is to bear fruit and remove anything that remains unfruitful.
The sword or the word is Jesus Christ or the Lord.
If you don’t have Jesus Christ who is the true vine, you can never bear fruit.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
The word of God that comes unto us is also the sword of the Spirit.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Now in the church, God has appointed His servants who are the fivefold ministers to preach the gospe of our Lord Jesus Christ that we the saint will be perfected.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
That sword the ministers carry which is the word of God is not in vain.
It comes to us that He will remove everything that is unclean in our heart and in our lives.
So when they rebuke, reprove, correct, gives instructions and exalt, it is the word that make us clean in the Lord.
For the word 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.
2 Timothy 4:2
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
These men of God are representatives of God our Lord on earth. For it is God that has called them and put them into power. He has given them the authority to remove anything evil in our lives and bless us.
This is the purpose of the word .
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
The purpose is to make you clean. Don’t reject the ministers who preach the truth unto you, but rather listen to them and God true them will prepare you for the kingdom of God.
Glory be unto our Lord Jesus Christ who has bestowed His blessings and mercy upon our lives through His Son Jesus Christ.
Thank God For His Purpose In Our Lives.
Thank you Father , for giving me your Son, that I will be clean and become your son.
Thank you for removing what is evil in my life. I thank you Lord Jesus Christ for the lives of your minister who preaching the gospel in and out of seasons that we will be like unto you Lord when you appear in your glory.
You can support this ministry to reach out to multitude with everything that we can use to reach out the gospel.
