The Word of God
The word of God can be understood in two ways.
The first is “LOGOS” or His written word and or “RHEMA” the spoken word from the sermons we hear or even words we receive during our fellowship with the Holy Spirit. In other word, the Word of God can be in writing or spoken.
In Strong’s Concordance No 3056, one of the meanings is:-
3056 LOGOS: In John, denotes the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, the personal wisdom and power in union with God, his minister in creation and government of the universe, the cause of all the world’s life both physical and ethical, which for the procurement of man’s salvation put on human nature in the person of Jesus the Messiah, the second person in the Godhead, and shone forth conspicuously from His words and deeds.
Let’s look at the Logos in Genesis 1:-
“1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
In this verse, we see that nothing was created but by the “Word”. We are taught that in the beginning, God gave us the Word! And if you have the Word, you have God. In fact, scripture went on to declare that the Word was God. And the Word is still God in Jesus Christ today.
Now let’s turn to John 1:1-3:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Therefore, if we want to grow in the knowledge of God, we need to keep and stay pure and holy in all that we do in our walk with God. It is so important that we must keep our mind pure, from the negative things in News or TV. We can try to avoid but believe me, it is very very difficult. You see, we need to allow the Word to flow freely in our mind and thoughts. To do that, I make every effort not to read newspapers or watch TV daily as they are filled with so much negative writings and news which would only corrupt our mind and thoughts. You see, I need to stay away from unwholesome things as I write daily “living bread” messages in my forum to bless my readers. But to keep up with the relevant news and updates, I only read the papers on Saturday mornings during breakfast times. Of course this is my preferred way of dividing my time with God’s word and reading the papers. You may have your way.
Now let’s consider another scripture in Hebrew 11.
“3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Notice it says the worlds were made by things “unseen”. The verse here is saying that the promises of God can only be “seen” not in the natural but through our “Spiritual Eyes”. In other word, if you can see it, you will have it! Amen! That’s the principle in the word of God. Often when I pray, the Holy Spirit would give me visions and thoughts. Yes, just like this morning when the Holy woke me up very early to teach and show me what He wanted me to share for this morning’s meditation. You see, I think the Lord want me to share with you forum members how important is His Word to us. It has great power (the dunamis) for us to stay on top and never under. Yes we can be above only and not under the circumstances! His word keeps us strong and healthy. In Proverbs 4:22 it says it is health to our body. His word will also give us strength and peace and so much more. It has unlimited blessings.
So go forth today in the power and might of His Word! We have the Word and the Word Is God!!!
And just to conclude, let me share this thought. Remember that the Word we speak everyday. It has real creative power of God just as we are shown in Genesis 1. And we therefore need to watch our words when we say things in our daily activities. We must strive to ensure that our words are wholesome and life giving.
Negative and undesired things can be framed by our careless words. We should only call forth words which will edify and bless us.
