Arm

Exodus 6:6 (b) GOD's arm is used to represent His mighty power which no one can withstand. The arm "made bare" ( Isaiah 53:1) really represents an arm on which the sleeve has been rolled up to reveal the muscles there. The same truth is found in Deuteronomy 4:4. GOD does not always reveal His love, tenderness, patience and kindness. Sometimes He manifests His anger, His mighty power, and His ability to destroy.

1 Kings 8:42 (a) The arm in this passage represents GOD's unusual, miraculous work in delivering His people from enemies who were stronger and more cruel than they. It also represents His power to meet every need of Israel, and making of them a great and powerful nation. (See also Deuteronomy 33:27).

1 Peter 4:1 (b) To arm oneself is to be equipped with a knowledge of GOD, and of His Word in such a way that one is able to meet the arguments and antagonism of GOD's enemies successfully and intelligently.
