Their Sword Shall Enter Into Their Own Heart…
While a man lives in his own transgressions and spews inequities across the land, the Lord our God, is watching. The Lord will see to it this mess is made right. While we believe we are actually inflicting pain upon others it is in fact pain upon ourselves that will be unleashed in ways never imagined. The pain will be greater and last forevermore. This is not a curse put upon another this is how it works.
When we live separated from God, living in sin, and we commit heinous acts against our brothers, sisters, Moms and Dads, we are in fact building up a hardened heart that will be broken by God. It will be soften at some point, at least one should pray it is softened long before the end. Our Father, Lord in heaven, is not pleased when such a person walks a path of anger, hatred towards others and lives for self.
The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes upon him with his teeth.
The Lord shall laugh at him:
For he sees that his day is coming. ~ Psalm 37 12-13 KJB
While the evildoers believe in their mind, as their heart is cut off from their body, their mind is telling them they are winning at whatever game they are playing. Their mind is corrupt with lust and their heart is nothing more than dust in their chest. The Lord, our God, sees this and can’t help but be hurt by His child acting in this manner. While the evil continues the Lord, our God, sets the record straight.
The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
Their sword shall enter into their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken. ~ Psalm 37:14-15 KJB
The only person an evildoer is hurting is themselves. When a person filled with evil intent comes before those that love the Lord and follow Jesus Christ, their weapons fail and fall to the ground. Their heart is pierced of their own making as the sword of righteousness enters their heart by their own hand.
When a person hits rock bottom the sting of death becomes real. The joy of redemption becomes real. We do not have to live this way. We do not have to crawl around on our belly like a snake. No, we can turn our eye to Jesus Christ and allow His love to pierce our heart. We can allow His love to remove our weapons and place the Whole Armor of God upon our mind, our heart, our body and soul. Yes, we can walk past those with wicked intent without so much as their breath touching our skin. We can allow the love of Jesus Christ to flow through us and break their weapons.
But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD:
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them:
He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save
them, because they trust in Him. ~ Psalm 37:39-40 KJB
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
