While the Word of God is comforting and nourishing to those who believe, it is a tool of judgment and execution for those who have not committed themselves to Jesus Christ. Some of the Hebrews were merely going through the motions of belonging to Christ. Intellectually, they were at least partly persuaded, but inside they were not committed to Him. God’s Word would expose their shallow beliefs and even their false intentions (1 Samuel 16:7; 1 Peter 4:5).  MacArthur Bible Commentary

New Testament:
Hebrews 4:1-16

Summary: Jesus the Great High Priest

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
~ Hebrews 4:12-13

A human judge can only test the things that people can see. He cannot test the inner person: a person’s intentions, thoughts, attitudes and desires. But the word of God does test these things. It discovers even what is in a person’s spirit. It can reward even the smallest amount of faith (Matthew 17:20). God’s word is powerful: it always achieves its purpose (Isaiah 55:11).

 

But there is no reward for unbelief. The people whom Moses led failed their test. They had no faith; they showed complete unbelief. We must not imitate them.

 

The Bible gives us many examples of people like Joseph, who passed the test. These are the people who have faith (Hebrews chapter 11). We should have thoughts and attitudes that are like theirs.
