Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword; His truth is marching on” (Julia Ward Howe, 1861).

Oh, the sword of the Lord, the sword of the Lord! The prophet, Isaiah, calls it a “sore and great and strong sword” (Isaiah 27:1). Indeed, the Lord doth wear it upon His thigh, but not for naught. With His “sore and great and strong sword,” He “shall punish Leviathan, the piercing serpent, even Leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.”

As the poet has declared: His truth is marching on. You dragons, serpents, snakes, vipers, spies, liars, beasts and false prophets, beware; the sword of the Lord doth come for thee. It will punish you, slay you and turn you back.

The Lord shall keep His Vineyard. He says, “I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day” (Isaiah 27:3). “The Father is the husbandman and vinedresser” (cf. John 15:1). The Vineyard belongs to Him and is precious in His sight.

The “Word of the Lord is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged 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).

The Sword of the Lord is the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17). Therefore, you Saints of the Almighty, rejoice! Be strong, be bold, be brave. Speak the Word of the Lord, the words spoken by the prophets. Go forth in the power of His might. With your own eyes you will see the glory of the Lord; for you have be sent to turn the world upside down.
