How We Shall Defeat Satan’s Evil By Using The Sword Of God. We are in the last days, and the Devil is working overtime to destroy God’s creation, particularly his children.
The Bible is the most formidable weapon against the Devil, and it contains the words of God, his teachings, instructions, and the armour we need to put on to defeat Satan and his minions.
What does the Bible tell us about the sword of God?
Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to pull down strongholds.
Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book. If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues written in this book.

Ephesians 6:10-18 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and the power of his might. Put on the armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the Devil’s wiles.
Wherefore take unto you the armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand, therefore, having your loins girt about with truth and having on the breastplate of righteousness. And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
