sword of the LORD

Jeremiah 47

v7

How can it be quiet, seeing the LORD hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore? there hath he appointed it.

This verse is talking about the sword of the Lord that won't be put back into its sheath. It's going to be judging the Philistines. The Philistines make me think of the enemies of the Lord's people. I think of the verse that says:

Isaiah 59:19

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

The Lord will deal with our enemies.
