Symbolism: The Sword of Selanae

The image on the right, called Sword of the Spirit, is by Jeff Haynie. I'm afraid in this instance, I didn't ask for permission. If he finds out, I hope he's merciful. Anyway, click on the image or on the following link to go to his website:

In the Selanian language, the word selan means spirit. The Sword of Selanae must therefore be translated as the Sword of the Spirit.

The Bible tells us the following in regard to this formidable weapon of God:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
-- Ephesians 6:10-18, New International Version (NIV)
For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
-- Hebrews 4:11-12, New International Version (NIV)
