Who is the Word

Posted by admin on 1 October 2017 in John |

I. The Word is our Creator.

See John 1:1-3.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

As this scripture shows, Jesus was the Word. And the Word existed before the creation began. The Word was God. And the Word was the Creator.

II. The Word endures for ever.

Then, let’s find out more about what the Bible tells us about the Word. See Isaiah 40: 6b-8.

 ‘All people are like grass,

and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field.

The grass withers and the flowers fall,

because the breath of the Lord blows on them.

Surely the people are grass.

The grass withers and the flowers fall,

but the word of our God endures for ever.’

Amen.

Jesus said in Matthew 24:35.

35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

III. The Word is life.

See 1 John 1:1-4.

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete.

In John 6:35, Jesus (the Word) said, He is the bread of life.

35 Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Our physical life is maintained by living on physical food. Our spiritual life is maintained by living on the Word of God.

Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’ (Matthew 4:4)

We study the written Word of God (the Holy Bible) to nurture our spiritual life.
The life in the Word is the light .  See John 1:4.

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

Jesus (the Word) is the true light, as shown in John 1:9.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

IV. The Word God has spoken shall be fulfilled

See Isaiah 55:10 – 11.

10 As the rain and the snow

come down from heaven,

and do not return to it

without watering the earth

and making it bud and flourish,

so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,

11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:

it will not return to me empty,

but will accomplish what I desire

and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

See Ezekiel 12:25.

25 But I the Lord will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious people, I will fulfil whatever I say, declares the Sovereign Lord.” ’

 

See Joshua 23:14 – 16.

14 ‘Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. 15 But just as all the good things the Lord your God has promised you have come to you, so he will bring on you all the evil things he has threatened, until the Lord your God has destroyed you from this good land he has given you. 16 If you violate the covenant of the Lord your God, which he commanded you, and go and serve other gods and bow down to them, the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and you will quickly perish from the good land he has given you.’

 

See 1 Kings 8:56.

 

56 ‘Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.

 

Other relevant verses are as below.

The Lord works out everything to its proper end—

even the wicked for a day of disaster. (Proverbs 16:4)

 

V. The Word is alive & active, sharpest and judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 – 13 says

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

VI. The Word is the Sword of Spirit, that is, most offensive weapon that believers have to put on, together with defensive coverings, for on-going spiritual fight.

Ephesians 6:17 says

17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

A prophet confessed in Isaiah 49:2 that he had the Sword of Spirit in his mouth.

He made my mouth like a sharpened sword,

in the shadow of his hand he hid me;

he made me into a polished arrow

and concealed me in his quiver.

 

Revelation 1:6, Revelation 2:12, Revelation 2:16, and Revelation 19:15 tell us about the Sword of Lord’s Mouth. See Revelation 19:15.

15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. ‘He will rule them with an iron sceptre.’ He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.

 

# The Holy Bible is the written Word of God.

16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16–17)

 

Jesus demonstrated the power of the written Word of God in Matthew 4:4, Matthew 4:7, and Matthew 4:10. See Matthew 4:10.

10 Jesus said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”’

The Good News of God (the Gospel) is the fulfilment of the written God’s Word (the Holy Bible).

See 1 Corinthians 15:3 – 4.

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
