    In regards to verse 34, we know that only Jesus is the Prince of Peace, and Sword represents the Word of God Ephesians 6:17-18. May be He warns us that because He is the Peace and He is the Word, those that believe in Him shall face persecution, rejection, division, etc. by their own blood relation. But be of good cheer for He has overcome. We can win them to Christ as well!

  • MONICA MUTANUKA for verse 19
    When we don't know what to say or how to answer when our critics challenge our faith, the Holy Spirit will give us what to say.
  • I wonder if He meant the Sword of the Holy Spirit.. It fights ,It wins, It gives Insight.. and it has Power.. and so much more the Holy Spirit brings to us and the fight for our Nation and her foes.. It doesn't have to be said in Biblical Terms but it can have power and is stronger than the slickness of Satan..Just like a sharp sword .
  • God bless you Nora be in Christ and also pray for your husband and family to convert in Christianity too. Glory to our Heavenly Father Jesus Christ now and forever more,Amen.
