Understanding the Word of God
“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.”
Hebrews 11:3
The Word of God is the creative power of God; as He created or framed the worlds by His Word. Do you know that you are born again, that is, you are spiritually transformed and renewed through the living and creative word of God? The Bible says, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”
1 Peter 1:23
We are designed to live by the word of God! Jesus told Satan that “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” The Word of God is the sustainer of all things. God upholds all things by the word of His power. We must place high premium on the word of God so that we could take delivery of all the virtues packaged in the word. As we hear the word, we are sanctified or made clean by the word. Do you know that we can make the word of God of no effect through our tradition? The Word of God is superior to our traditional beliefs. We must not handle the word of God deceitfully. The word of God is designed to abide in us so that we can overcome the wicked one. Jesus Christ defeated satan by the written word of God!
We have the onus or obligation to:
1. Receive the Word of God!
“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.”
1 Thessalonians 2:13
2. Hear the Word of God!
“And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.”
Acts 13:44
3. Speak the Word of God!
“And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
Acts 4:31
4. Preach the Word of God!
“And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.”
Acts 13:5
5. Teach the Word of God!
“And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.”
Acts 18:11
I decree and declare that you will tap into the power of God’s Word always in Jesus mighty name.
