Goliath's Cross-shaped Sword

"Old writers would always compare the cross with Goliath's sword.  Goliath was the Philistine giant and he intended to destroy David and the army of Israel with his sword but in fact the tables were turned on him and  the sword that he had sharpened to destroy the Israelites was the very thing that lopped off his head.  And that's exactly what the cross is.  The cross is the fullest expression of man's cruelty.  It's Satan's greatest instrument.  And yet this very cross was the thing that destroyed the Devil and his works."
