Well-Aimed Stones


Well-Aimed Stones

John 1:141

          Jesus is the Word made flesh who came to dwell among men. Scripture also refers to Jesus as “the Rock”, or a stone, as in Luke 20:17, where He is called the chief Cornerstone. If Jesus is the Word made flesh, and if He is the Rock, then each portion of the Word is like a stone.

          Instructions were given to the Israelites concerning how to handle their enemy in Deuteronomy 13:10, “And you shall stone him to death with stones, because he has tried to draw you away from the Lord your God”. Remember that David defeated Goliath with a well-aimed stone.

          You too can “stone” your enemy, Satan, in accordance with Deuteronomy 30:14, “But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your mind and in your heart”. Learn the Word and allow the Holy Spirit to teach you how to speak it effectively.
