For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
Quick – The Word of God is alive, active, fast, timely, productive, not dead, nor barren, and it is energetic.
Powerful – The Word is capable of doing whatever God says, it has the capacity to perform. because it is potent and full of strength.
Sharper Than Any Two-edged Sword – The Word of God is accurate, precise, does not contradict itself, pure, true, does not lie, powerful.
This makes it able to penetrate through any situation at all, heal any disease, and do the impossible. It searches through the soul, and spirit, and joint, and the marrow because the word of God is spirit and life. John 6:33
It goes through the deepest part of nature, and discerns the heart of men because the words formed nature, man, and everything in the world.
The Power In The Word of God
The power in the Word of God is beyond description just as God Himself is beyond description. The word in God creates – Genesis 1, the word of God is life, it heals, sanctifies, purifies, transforms, destroys, kills and makes alive.

But when he encountered the word of God, the smell irritated him. The Word of God is powerful and beyond description.
The word mends, the word restores, the word makes whole, the word is first spiritual, before physical. It is the spirit in the word of God that gives effect to the letters. So until you encounter the Spirit, the letters won’t make sense to you or profit you.
Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 2 Corinthians 3:6
