The Two-edged Sword

The binary or dual nature of the Word of God in Christ is called a two-edged sword. The Word is the sword and the balance of the two sides of the Word are the two edges of the sword. No one but Jesus can effectively balance the two sides - that is why it is said that, "A sharp two-edged sword came out of his mouth." (Revelation 1:16)

Word = Sword

The Word is the Holy Bible and the two edges of the Word are the old testament and the new testament.

Our knowledge of the binary nature of Christ reveals that the sword is not meant to physically harm or kill people, but to transform them. Jesus does not engage in physical violence or take part in wars. He is a King of peace.

Numerically, the sword is 45 and the two edges of the sword are 4 and 5. Since 4 is the Gospel and 5 is the Torah, Christ's sword is the balance between the Gospel and the Torah. Example: our explanation of the two witnesses is a balance of the Torah and the Gospel. In the Torah, the two witnesses are Moses and Elijah; in the Gospel, the two witnesses are James and John.

The sword of God is the United Monarchy whose two edges are the southern kingdom of Judah and the northern kingdom of Israel. This, of course, means that Jerusalem and Samaria are not two swords, but two edges of the same sword.

The new Jerusalem (the holy city) is a sword whose two edges are the twelve apostles of the Lamb and the twelve tribes of Israel, which means that the tesseract is a sword whose two edges are the two cubes.

A binary black hole formed by binary black hole merger is a sword with two edges.

Tao is the physical manifestation of the Word, which means that Tao is the sword and Yin and Yang are the two edges of the sword.

Revelation 19:11-21 portrays Christ as someone leading a holy war. He is actually a warrior using his teachings to combat and defeat extremism and radicalism. He destroys the two extremes by using his sword to unite them.

An example of the war Jesus is fighting against is the conflict between Muslims and Christians. He slays the jihadists and  the crusaders by using his two edged sword to reconcile Muslims and Christians. It is hard to find a soldier still standing on either side once the sword of Christ is set against the warring parties.
