They that RULE by the sword, DIE by the sword

Sheep Attacking Wolf

When Jesus said to Peter “Those who live by the sword, die by the sword” (Matthew 26:52) he wasn’t criticizing Peter for chopping off the guy’s ear! 

NO! and HELL NO! 😡

He was comforting Peter with The Truth of His Spiritual Law. 

Peter DID NOT live by the sword, he was a fisherman, with a sword for protection, just as Jesus had said “If you have no sword, sell your garments and buy one..”  (Luke 22:36)

The people coming to arrest Jesus, the pharisees and the saducees and the roman guards all in cahoots together to unlawfully take him down, for Jesus had done nothing wrong…it is THEY, the mad power hungry crook criminal tyrants, who LIVE by the sword!

All Peter knew is that they we’re coming to take away His Lord and His Friend and he did that which is most courageous and commendable…He defended Jesus! (remember, greater love hath no man than this that he lay down his life for his friends).

And Jesus, seeing this, knowing the love that Peter had for him, comforted Peter reminding him that they will get their due..that they will get what is coming to them…for all that RULE by the sword, DIE by the sword.

And in TRUE prophetic fashion, Jerusalem was later sacked by Rome and Rome was later on sacked by the barbarians.

So, Jesus spoke a prophecy as well as a spiritual law! 

And, not surprisingly, the so-called “church”, in their usual fashion, has been getting this wrong for YEARS! 🙄

  1. Yepper. Rev. 13:10 parallels, and gives a clue to anyone who’s truly been abused by the world; it takes faith and patience to remain steadfast in the knowledge that the bastards will get theirs. Whether or not some of them get it by my hand is beside the point 🙂

    • “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
      ~Revelation 13:10

      One day, when the world wide criminal organization that runs the globe has reached it’s pinnacle, when the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His Wrath, which is vengeance, is full and running over, God will use His Children Israel to take them down.

      Not the man-made country called Israel. NO.

      Israel means “overcomer” as HE told Jacob after they wrestled in the wilderness “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome.” ~Genesis 32:28 (NIV -the KJV says “prevailed”)

      The name Jacob means “he that grasps the heel” or “supplanter” which gives the connotation of illegally taking by scheming, strategy etc. (remember Jacob conspired with his mother, Rebekah, to steal Esau’s birthright)

      The name Israel means “overcomer” which is to conquer, vanquish, obliterate and utterly destroy ones enemy ie “overcome” the enemy..get the better of, engulf, inundate the enemy…and how?

      “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
      ~Revelation 12:11

      Man gone from a scheming illegal supplanter to legal righteous overcomer…cloaked in the blood of The Lamb and given a crown, with the word of his testimony against The Beast System in his mouth, he went forth conquering and to conquer…
      The First Of The Four Horsemen

      As HE said:

      “The portion of Jacob is not like them; for he is the former of all things: and Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the LORD of hosts is his name.

      Thou (Israel) art my battle axe and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms;

      And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider; and with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider;
      With thee also will I break in pieces man and woman; and with thee will I break in pieces old and young; and with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid; I will also break in pieces with thee the shepherd and his flock; and with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen; and with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.

      And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD.”
      ~Jeremiah 51:19-24
