This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. I Corinthians 2:13 New International Version
What makes the The Bible, The Word of God so powerful? A very simple truth. The Bible is not just pages and ink and words. The Bible is not something, its SOMEONE: JESUS!!! That’s right! The Word is Jesus. But Jesus is a person and has a flesh and bone body (He had a flesh and blood body before he was crucified). Yes, John 1:14 says “So the Word became human and made His home among us.” So do you see what The Word just said? The Word became human….. I am going to tell you something that every person on the planet needs to know saved or unsaved. If they did it can change their entire life and the lives of their family. Whether you believe it or not every single thing you see and even the things you don’t see with your physical eyes were created by WORDS!!!
One has only to read the first book of Genesis to understand this. And God said (spoken words),”Light be!” and Light was. Now I am not talking about the Sun because if you read a little further you will see that the Sun was not created until the fourth day. But that is another story for another time. But lets talk about WORDS or The Word.
In the beginning The Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his life brought light to everyone.
John 1:1-4 New Living Translation
So you see here from the book of John, EVERYTHING was created by God through The Word. How did God do this? He does it because His Word has POWER!!!
No word from God shall be void of power. Luke 1:37 English Revised Version
You see, every word from God has power in it to bring itself to pass. Imagine if every word you said came to pass. People play with words. They say things like, “Oh I love her to death.” Now imagine that if that persons word was like God as that person continues to love that individual eventually their love would cause that person to die. God said, “Light be!” and He meant it, He believed it and it came to pass and was made manifest and He saw it and said it was good. If this sounds like make believe its not. People do this everyday. They talk to things everyday either negatively or positively. People talk to plants to help them grow. There are proven scientific test that show when people speak positive words to water it affects the formation of the water or even ice crystals.
The Bible is not just any regular set of words, each and every word was carefully crafted and released by and through men who were under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of God. Now many people say “the Bible has changed people have added to it.” And you’re right. When you look in a King James Version Bible and you see words in italics that means those words were not there originally and were added for clarity. Does this mean The Words is not dependable, absolutely not. This means remove those words to get the true meaning. Also please know that the Old Testament was written originally in Hebrew and the New Testament was written in Greek. So you need to study these things out to find out whats really being said. You study and practice to get good at your job. You take the time needed to become proficient at things you enjoy or value or have a career in. How about investing some time in something that will benefit your spirit, soul and body and not only yours, but your families.
Hebrew and Greek are very different languages. There are some words in Hebrew and Greek that do not even translate to English. So what do you do? You obey The Word. What does The Word tell you to do with The Word?
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 King James Version
Since the Holy Spirit inspired the writings, then He is the One Who can teach you about what God said and what God meant.
But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true–it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ. I John 2:27 New Living Translation
Since God is the Author and The Holy Spirit dictated to men of God what was being said, the Holy Spirit can teach you what He said and what He meant. This will give you the same power as you speak The Word of God in faith as God Himself. When you take God’s Word believe it and speak it, it has the same power and result as if God Himself did it. So make a choice to believe The Word and act on it, SPEAK IT!! Then see good things come into your life!!!
All the blessed to you!!! Shalom
