"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” - Hebrews 4:12
The word of God is the only book in the world that is sharp like a sword, and powerful enough to penetrate deep into the heart of a man, searching for anything contrary to the teachings of God’s Holy Law.
There is no escaping, and you cannot hide what’s in your heart from God, the Real Surgeon. Anything that is there, anything contrary to His word and the teachings of holiness will be discovered.
Whatever is there will be seen what could not be seen with the natural eye. If there is deceitfulness - God will see it. If there is hatred - God will see it. If there is hypocrisy - God will see it. Whatever is there, know that our All Wise God in Heaven will see it.
And what He sees will in some way or another be made known unto you - not to hurt you, but to help you to know who you really are, that you will turn from it, and instead submit yourself to following the truth of His Holy Word, that has been given to us to help us live Holy lives.
Without the Light of the gospel, it would be impossible to know we have deviated or wandered away from the law of God. This is what every born again believer in Christ should desire more than anything - to have more of God, and that He would not let you wander away from His commandments (Psalm 119:10).
