The Sword has a purpose.

Psalms 123:19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against You wickedly; Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21    Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22    I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.
23    Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;
24    And see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

I pray that my Elohim would cause the wicked to fail in whatever they attempt to do, and that His angels would slay them, causing them to leave me alone. For they have no concern for the lives of others.

Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men. (Vs 19)

They have no regard for you my King, they speak of you as if you don’t exist. They pervert your Word, and profane your Sabbath, taking your name as something common.

For they speak against You wickedly; Your enemies take Your name in vain. (Vs 20)

I cannot help but despise them because, they have no love for you, my King. And those who twist Your Word, and go contrary to Your law. They despise your ways, and also my ways. For I belong to you, Abba, I am your child!

Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You? (Vs 21)

I cannot help but dislike them, Abba. It makes me angry to know that they oppose You, and Your Ways. For they profess Your name, but do not walk according to your Law, and they teach others to do the same.

To me, Abba, that’s murder, taking the lives of those innocent enough to listen to the lies. And because they are deceived, they cannot live according to Your Holy Word. Therefore they will die in the judgment.

I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies. (Vs 22)

But help me to love them, Yehoshua, and pray for them. Cause me to come against them with the truth of Your Word. Help me to Wield it as a sword, cutting down the fruit of false teaching, and severing the deception from those who have heard their lies.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 

You know my heart, and that I desire to serve you and no other, my King.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Vs 23, 24)

For You, Yehoshua, are the Way, the Truth, and the life. and I desire to follow You.

Shalom my friends,

Chuck Greever
