This is what the one who has the sharp, double-edged sword says...

In Matthew 10, Jesus sends out his disciples to Israel...
"And whoever does not welcome you or listen to your words, shake off the dust from your feet as you are going out of that house or that town. Truly I say to you, it will be more bearable for the region of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town!"

We are all called to be witnesses.  Constant witnesses, never ceasing to go throughout all the towns, all the nations calling the lost sheep.  The witness is a double edged sword.  It divides to the marrow and lays bare the soul to show what's in it.  The Word is life to those who hear and receive it with joy, but it is death and judgment to the perishing.  To the arrogant who will not repent.  Who will not agree with God that they sin or need a savior at all.  Who will not fall on their knees before the king who's sword it is.  Righteous or wicked, the sword of the word reveals us for what we are, quick or dead.
