Parables of the Sword

The significance of the Sword in Warrior Heart Ministries

The Sword serves as a reminder of what we as Christian men and women believe the attributes of a Christian warrior should be.

 

The Sword is:

Bold

Incapable of being shy, timid or suppressed

Has a mystical attraction

People are drawn to it

Both offensive and defensive weapon

Only offensive weapon in the Armor of God

Very rare / can be used both to block and to attack

Close Proximity Weapon

Forces you to face your enemy, brings you out of your comfort zone

Commands Respect

Has Authority

A commitment weapon

Is heavy and therefore requires effort to carry

Must be kept sharp

Not only the edge, but the skills and knowledge of it (the Word of God)

 

 

“Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee.

Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.

That is your oath.”

The Knights Oath from the movie – Kingdom of Heaven
