Is there a weapon that will prosper against you?

No weapon created against thee shall succeed, and every mouth that rises against thee in judgment shall be condemned. This is the inheritance of the LORD's servants, and their fair reward from Me, says the LORD....

The sword of the enemy cannot prevail against the wisdom of God's people, but they can be defeated by their ignorance of his ways. The wicked who carry weapons have no fear because they believe they are immune to injury. But the day comes when everyone will stand before God and give an account for their lives.

God always wins in the end, but he allows evil to exist so good can triumph over it. When swords are drawn between two parties, peace usually lies between them. However, one side must yield to the other in order for justice to be served.

So yes, there is a weapon that will prosper against your enemies: Jesus Christ. He is able to save to the uttermost all who come to him through faith in him. So go out today and share with others what you have found here at Dose. Of all the weapons in God's arsenal, this is surely first among equals.

What does the Bible say about weapons?

No weapon made against you will be successful, and you will annihilate every mouth that rises in judgment against you. "This is the inheritance of the Lord's servants, and their vindication from me," says the Lord. Matthew 5:38-39ESV/40 voters found this helpful Not Very Helpful Weapons In The Old Testament

Weapons were important in the old testament, especially for armies. Soldiers without weapons were defenseless. God told Moses to make swords out of bronze for the Israelites' use (see Exodus 14:10). Bronze cannot be sharpened like steel so these swords would have had a blunt edge when created.

Moses also ordered some gold and silver tools made for him by the Israelite craftsmen. These he gave to Joshua so that the army could fight effectively.

The prophets also spoke about the destruction of sword and gun culture. Isaiah 2:4-5 says, "So they will go from one foreign country to another, proclaiming the word of the Lord. They will not build houses because there will be no one to live in them; they will gather wood and carry it on their backs to sell in another country. They will earn money, which they will then lose at gaming tables." The Israelites were supposed to be a light to the nations with their holy religion but instead they became enslaved by certain countries who wanted their resources.

When does a weapon seem to prosper?

Isaiah 54:17 says that no weapon formed against you will prosper. When a weapon appears to succeed, no weapon made against you shall flourish, and every mouth that rises in judgment against you shall be condemned. This means that even when it seems like the world is against you, your situation is not hopeless or beyond repair.

The prophet Micah said that God will carry out his righteous judgment against all who are angry with their brothers. This includes people who argue with other people on the Internet. Sometimes we feel like arguing back, but knowing that this person is going to judge us anyway makes us stop ourselves from saying something we might regret later.

In the Old Testament, Moses told the people of Israel that they would never successfully attack another nation because God was watching over them. However many wars have been started by people claiming that they were acting on behalf of God, so this doesn't seem to be true. Still, even when nations go to war with each other, there are generally only two sides, so this must also include groups of people fighting each other.

People often say that religion divides rather than unites. But the Bible tells us that God wants us to live together in peace (Eph. 2:14-15).

What makes a weapon prosper?

Weapons will be created. The adversary will create new weapons to use against you, but "No weapon produced against you will be successful. You will condemn every mouth that rises against you in judgment. This is the inheritance of the Lord's people, and their righteousness comes from me, declares the Lord." (Isaiah 54:17-19).

People will use them. Even if you abolish all weapons, people will still use them because it is in their nature to fight. One example is crime. Even though there are no weapons at work, people will still commit crimes just because they can get away with it. Another example is war. No matter how effective our weapons are, people will still go to war because it provides a great opportunity for wealth acquisition.

There will be accidents/malfunctions/tampering. Weapons require human intervention to function properly; therefore they will sometimes malfunction or be used incorrectly. Also, someone will always have an advantage when using a weapon so there will always be a chance of tampering.

Some weapons will become popular and others will disappear. Some weapons will become popular and others will disappear over time as technology advances. For example, swords were commonly used in wars until guns became available more recently. However, even though guns may be more effective, they are also much harder to make so they will rarely appear in future wars.

What does "no weapons formed against me shall prosper" mean?

This is not a guarantee that you will not be attacked or hit by a weapon (i.e. a test, trial, tribulation, or suffering of any type), but as we all know, we are born to struggle (Job 5:7). It will not prosper, according to the promise. This means that no matter how strong or powerful you may seem to be, you are still subject to failure and destruction. No one is immune to suffering.

The word "prosper" here means "to rise up successfully; come into wealth." Thus, this statement means that even if someone seems like they will never suffer, they are still subject to death, destruction, and poverty.

Jesus said almost the same thing in John 16:33: "In that day you will ask me nothing then I will give you everything". Jesus was speaking about the time when he would return to Earth, but his words also apply to those who have died and gone to heaven. In other words, even though you will not see me during your time on earth, I am with you always even after you die.

So, first of all, remember that everyone dies. You can avoid certain dangers through careful planning but you cannot escape death entirely. After you die, you will be reunited with your loved ones in heaven or hell depending on how you lived your life.

Secondly, don't expect happiness during your time on earth.
