“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword” – (Heb_4:12)

You must know if this is something you can authenticate or not, but I do know that it is funnier than just about anything I’ve come across. I’ve used this on many occasions when teaching about the importance of knowing God’s Word well enough to defend yourself against the insidious attacks of that Old Serpent, the Devil.

Enjoy this helpful advice:

The following is from the U.S. Government Peace Corps Manual for its volunteers who work in the Amazon Jungle.  It tells what to do in case you are attacked by an anaconda.  For the record, the anaconda is the largest snake in the world.  It grows to thirty-five feet in length and weighs between three and four hundred pounds at the maximum. (Basically, we’re talking about a telephone pole with a bad attitude!)

This is what the manual said.

If you are attacked by an anaconda, do not run.  The snake is faster than you are.

Lie flat on the ground.  Put your arms tight against your sides, your legs tight against one another.

Tuck your chin in.

The snake will come and begin to nudge and climb over your body.

Do not panic.
After the snake has examined you, it will begin to swallow you from the feet end – always from the feet end.  Permit the snake to swallow your feet and ankles.  Do not panic.

The snake will now begin to suck your legs into its body.  You must lie perfectly still.  This will take a long time.

When the snake has reached your knees, slowly, and with as little movement as possible, reach down, take your knife and very gently slide it into the side of the snake’s mouth between the edge of its mouth and your leg.  Then suddenly rip upwards, severing the snake’s head.

(The last  two suggestions were the ones that got me.)

Be sure you have your knife.

Be sure your knife is sharp!

Don’t you think that should be number one and two on the list! You don’t want to get halfway into the process of being eaten by a snake only then to discover that you forgot your knife!

Neither do you want to go unarmed into a world crawling with snakes and scorpions and a host of others poisonous critters, stalking your every move and seeking to do you harm. “Be sure you have your knife (the two-edged sword of God), and be sure your knife is sharp (ready for whatever comes your way).


Father we thank you, Lord Jesus we thank you, Holy Spirit we thank you; yet I pray that you give me the grace to sharpen my knife that at all times it may as thy own knife; sharper than any two edged sword. In Jesus’ name.

  4. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    • Indeed! Somethings must not be sold, yet one can be compensated for time used for writing. Though that will depend on how one interprets the scriptures in is conscience. As for me, Jesus did not charge me for his time and humiliation therefore, i think i don’t deserve to charge anything to anyone for reading my posts. Some people will at times want to thank one not by word but by gifts.

  6. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  7. I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
