"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:17 (Paul speaking to the Christians in the city of Ephesus - NAS)  

The sword of the Spirit is not described as physical weapons of war...or the thoughts of men.  The word of God is the sword of the Spirit.

There are people today who will refuse to read or follow the word of God as contained in scripture, but yet they will claim that they are being led by the Spirit of God.  If we are being led by God's Spirit, then God's word will also be our sword.

Hebrews 4:11-13 is one of many places that discussed the importance of the Christian knowing God's word:

"Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall through following the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do." Hebrews 4:11-13. (NAS)

Jesus tells about the critical importance of His words that He received from God, saying in John 12:47-49:

"And if anyone hears My sayings, and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. "He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. "For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me commandment, what to say, and what to speak." (NAS)
