Gorr survived their encounter however and would spend the next thousand years butchering more and more gods, growing ever stronger and amassing an army of dark minions to assist him in his crusade. Thor once again took notice of Gorr's activities centuries later and began hunting him when a prayer summoned him to a world without gods, recognizing Gorr's handiwork when he found the world's deities slaughtered. While Thor went to the cave where they once fought to look for him, Gorr attacked Chronux to lay claim to the Pool of Forevers and used the blood of the Time Gods to traverse the timestream. He went back to the beginning of the universe and slew one of the very first elder gods, taking the infant deity's heart as a trophy. He then headed forward in time millennia into the future and arrived in Earth-14412, claiming a desolate world to serve as his base of operations and enslaving all the gods he could capture except for All-Father Thor, who he routinely tormented over his failures. Over the next nine-hundred years, Gorr forced the enslaved gods to mine broken planets and the cores of stars for material to build the Godbomb, which he intended to use to exterminate all gods across the entirety of the timestream. Gorr also created constructs of his deceased wife and son from the All-Black symbiote, though unbeknownst to him his "son" embodied his subconscious self-loathing.

However, "Agar" decided to assist Thor the Avenger in bringing down the God Butcher, having come to recognize that his father had essentially become the very thing he always despised. Charged by the prayers of the son, as well as every single surviving god across space and time, Thor absorbed the Godbomb's blast as well as the Necrosword. Using its power, Thor was able to weaken Gorr, with "Agar" denouncing Gorr as the God of Hypocrisy before Thor's past self finally killed him.
Now it will be asked by many who do not recognize [this as] the will of Christ for us, whether a Christian may or should employ the sword against the wicked for the defence and protection of the good, or for the sake of love.
Thirdly, it will be asked concerning the sword, Shall one be a magistrate if one should be chosen as such? The answer is as follows: They wished to make Christ king, but He fled and did not view it as the arrangement of His Father. Thus shall we do as He did, and follow Him, and so shall we not walk in darkness. For He Himself says, He who wishes to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Also, He Himself forbids the [employment of] the force of the sword saying, The worldly princes lord it over them, etc., but not so shall it be with you. Further, Paul says, Whom God did foreknow He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, etc. Also Peter says, Christ has suffered (not ruled) and left us an example, that ye should follow His steps.
The Sword Method helps believers learn how to read the Bible as well as understand and apply it to their lives. It starts with a simple picture of a sword, which has four sides that coincide with four questions. We encourage them to ask these same four questions every time they read a passage of Scripture.
Gorr grew up on a nameless barren planet where earthquakes, lack of water, and wild animals are common. No gods helped his people, but they still trusted blindly in their faith. When his mother, mate, and children died, he thought gods could not exist, and because of that, he was outcast by his tribe. When he learned gods did exist but did not help those in need, such as his dying family, he vowed to kill them all. He then acquired All-Black the Necrosword from Knull after witnessing Knull in combat with a golden god. He eventually finds young Thor Odinson on Earth in Medieval Iceland. He nearly killed the God of Thunder, but a band of Vikings came to assist him in their battle. While Gorr escaped with his arm cut off, he soon learned he needed help, so he created an army of shadow berserkers, then slowly and quietly eliminated more and more gods. Eventually, in the present day, Thor noticed the missing gods and investigated their disappearances. This brought Gorr and Thor to another battle, but Gorr then teleported into the future, spending centuries resuming his campaign against the gods. By the time Thor followed Gorr into the future, his aged counterpart was the last Asgardian defending the realm against the shadow berserkers. Gorr also brings the young Thor into the future, where his wife and children have seemingly been resurrected, as he is about to set off the Godbomb, wanting to force the Thor who originally defeated him to witness the results of his efforts. Young Thor escapes and joins forces with his other selves to mount a new attack, but this assault fails and all three Thors are captured. However, when Gorr kills his wife for calling him her god, Gorr's "son", actually a construct made out of All-Black the Necrosword, releases Thor the Avenger from captivity and asks him to kill his father, observing that the man his father was once would be horrified at what he has become. As Thor dives into the heart of the Godbomb wielding both his Mjolnir and the Mjolnir of his older self, the prayers of all the gods from across time give Thor the power to absorb the blast. Thor from the present then uses the two Mjolnirs to kill Gorr.
Millions of years into the future, Gorr is resurrected through the Necrosword by Loki in order to kill Thor. More powerful than ever, Gorr attempts to destroy the universe, but is depowered by Thor and driven insane, sent to live out the rest of his now-mortal life on Indigarr.
Gorr is a mortal who does not have superhuman abilities. He later enters in possession of the symbiotic weapon "All-Black the Necrosword," which according to Galactus, "carved the first dawn from the stone of the endless night." The blade was forged by Knull, the progenitor of the Klyntar species, using the head of a slain Celestial. The blade is later banished into a black hole, but an elderly King Thor uses it to battle Galactus.
Bonding with "All-Black the Necrosword" provides various superpowers to the one who wields it. The sword grants superhuman strength, durability, speed, and reflexes. The blade lets its user create differents constructs, such as wings allowing the user flight at extreme speeds, magical weapons, sharp tendrils that can kill any god, including Asgardians, and a shroud of Berserkers constructed out of darkness. The sword grants virtual immortality. It allows its wielder to recover quickly from injuries. With the sword, Gorr also created the Godbomb, an anti-divinity armament designed to kill every god who had existed or ever would exist. Additionally, each time a god is slain by the blade, it provides more power to its wielder.
Darby Harn of Screen Rant called Gorr one of Thor's "very powerful and very well-regarded villains," writing, "Gorr The God Butcher is a popular villain with fans in large measure because of how successful he was. He lived up to his name by killing most of the gods of the Marvel Universe, leaving an older Thor virtually alone on the throne of Asgard in a dark future. Gorr is one of Thor's coolest comic book villains in recent years, with a ghostly look and a weapon, the Necrosword, that has a connection to the alien symbiote that spawned Venom."
Deuteronomy 33:29Blessed are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord (Jehovah)? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword (Chereb). Your enemies will cower before you, and you will tread on their heights.
"One eighth of the whole population were colored slaves not distributed generally over the union but localized in the southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war. To strengthen perpetuate and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union even by war while the government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces but let us judge not that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered that of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. "Woe unto the world because of offenses for it must needs be that offenses come but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh." If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which in the providence of God must needs come but which having continued through His appointed time He now wills to remove and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him. Fondly do we hope fervently do we pray that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword as was said three thousand years ago so still it must be said 'the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.'
But for now simply let this straightforward statement stand in your mind and sink into your heart: The Word, Jesus Christ was with God, and he was God. He is God, and he has a relationship with God. He is God, and he is the image of God, perfectly reflecting all that God is and standing forth from all eternity as the fullness of deity in a distinct Person. There is one divine essence and three persons. Two of them are mentioned here. The Father and the Son. We learn those names later on in the book. The Holy Spirit will be introduced later.
