is the Glory of God to Conceal a Matter,
Aspects of the Word of God
What is truth? Thy word is TRUTH! The Word of God is described as a double-edged sword, the spirit and the letter of the Word are the two edges. The Logos and the Rhema are Greek words defining the two aspects of the Word of God. The word is the greatest mystery of all. It is alive. The Word is a person. HE is settled forever in heaven. The word became flesh and dwelt among us. There are 3 who bear witness in heaven, The Father, the Spirit and the Word, and these 3 agree as one.
Man can not live by bread alone but by every word (Rhema) that proceeds out of the mouth of God. The word of God spoken is a force which created and sustains the Universe. He watches over His Word to perform it. God sent the Word and he sent the Spirit went forth to perform the Word. Perfect faith is perfect knowledge and application of the Word.
The proceeding word is the word which teaches all things, it is shared by and it nurtures the flock of God. It is the Wonderful Counselor, the Helper who goes alongside of us (paraclete), our Friend and our Guide.
Thy Word (Gr.logos) is truth. The logos is the mind of God and the recorded Word of God. It is His unchangeable and unalterable will. The Logos is the full counsel of God it delineates and defines all truth. If you continue in my word (Logos) then are you my true disciples and you will know the Truth and the Truth will make you free.
The way of
God is a mystery. The Truth of God is a mystery. The
Holy Spirit reveals it. We who are of the faith may
say, "I was once blind, but now I see." -John 9- Psalm
91, - The Secret Place -
Aren't all people equal? Hasn't God shared his revelation with every kindred, tribe and nation? Haven't Buddha, Krishna and Mohammed all heard form God? Should not their witness of truth be equal to the "Christian revelation" from the mouth of God? The question is universally asked and man has come up with his own answer with the help of certain spirits of deception!
There are many religions, many faiths, many religious writings and books. Who has knowledge of God? Which is true? Are they all true? Are they all from the same God as some say?
thing to argue that God has limited access to His
revelation of Truth. He chose only one covenant people
unto whom he would reveal himself. The Jews were that
people. The only people who God chose in all the earth.
The recorded word (Logos) was given unto them by the
mouth of prophets and holy men of old. Yes, there
were other peoples who had their priests and prophets
also. The Egyptians, the Chaldeans, the Persians,
the Caananites, and many others. Jehovah instructed
his people to destroy any nation who worshiped false
Gods. They were to be annihilated down to the last
man, woman and child. These nations were corrupted
by demonic influence. God would have nothing to do
with them; His people were at risk of being defiled
It is a major revelation of God in itself to realize that Bible is indeed DIVINE, inspired and infallible in its revelation. Only God could have prepared that word and preserved it despite the handling of it over countless centuries by mortal men. We know that heaven and earth shall pass away but that Word shall abide forever.
After finding God by faith we continue to grow in knowledge of the Truth. What is truth? In the book of John (Gospel, John 17) Jesus says to the Father, "Sanctify them with your truth, your Word is Truth?"
Of all the books written to explain God or speak for Him, only the Bible is infallible! This is a bold and absolute statement. Others do not believe this. I do. This is a statement of faith. I did not always know this. Now I do know this. He has written his word in my heart. When he does this it is established and nothing can persuade us otherwise. We would die to defend this truth.
We know that
Holy men of old were moved by God's Spirit to write
the accounts in the Bible. Prophets moved by the Spirit
declared the thoughts of God and the intentions of
God. In the Law of God any prophet whoops words proved
untrue must be killed. Because nothing pertaining
to God is of a lie. Satan however, is a liar. Jesus
called him a deceiver, a liar from the beginning.
God makes a clear line to go out from the heavens.
This line separates light and darkness. The line of
the Word separates truth and error. Satan however,
is also at work constantly to steal and subvert the
Word. It is Lucifer's intent to deceive, to kill,
and to bring destruction.
declares that by Him were the worlds made. The Word
has power. In Geneses 1:3 we read, "And God said,
Let there be light: and there was light." In Geneses
1:6, "And God said, Let there be a firmament in
the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters
from the waters." And again in Genesis 1:26, "And
God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish
of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over
the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
Thus God spoke the Word and the worlds were created.
In John Chapter 17 Jesus speaks to the Heavenly Father hearkening back to a time when they shared fellowship in Glory, before the world was. The Word is the first manifestation of the creation. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1 and Colossians 1:15))
The Word is a Living Entity. Christ is the incarnation of the Word. "The word became flesh." This is a mystery. (John 1:1) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:3) "All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." Thus before the world was, Christ was. He created all things. He was with the Father. (John 17:1,2)
That which is called the Word (the "Logos") is the written or recorded counsel of God, the mind of God. There is a single purpose and plan of God for this earth. It is described in one Book, the Bible, for His people to be the praise of the whole earth. This Word shall pass the test of time. Jesus' own words are recorded in Matthew 24, when he declared "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my Word shall shall never pass away."
of God is called a sure word. The word outlines the
plan of God spoken to his servants the prophets in
time past in the spirit of prophecy, the testimony
of Jesus. This word is suitable for doctrine and for
correction; it is the "Spirit of Wisdom and Truth."
God's Word was spoken and it established the manifested universe. Words still have power to create and empower. Words control the activity of Angels and Demons. Words are Not to be Taken Lightly
In Matthew Chapter 12 verse 26, Jesus addresses the necessity of guarding every word we speak. He teaches or rather gives warning that "we will give an account for every idle word," at a time of future reckoning.
Spoken words have a spiritual force (life) in this world. We will also come to realize that human words which are out of character with God's Word and will can undo the Power of Faith.
In the epistle
of James, who was a younger brother of Jesus, (Yes
Mary had several children after Jesus was born according
to the Gospels) writes to say that our tongues are
unruly and impossible to tame, but if it could they
be tamed we could become a Perfect Man! Evil easily
takes over our words and we give place to another
spirit which is not of/from God but against Him.
Because the "Living Word" is a Spiritual substance, or more correctly, a person, the light and truth of the Word is hidden until the veil is removed. Only Jesus has the power to penetrate the veil of understanding. I and others can testify how reading the Bible was at one time, a meaningless chore until Christ's Spirit became our mentor and teacher and allowed truth to be unveiled.
The link of Faith to the Word is evident building up the mind and soul of all who read. It is the Word that brings light to our understanding. It is the word which shall never pass away. He watches over His word to perform it. Amen.
Only Jesus Christ Has the Power to Remove the Veil From Our Eyes andFrom Our Understanding
Revelation, inspiration, searching, knocking,
asking; these are all pathways that lead a
seeker into the knowledge of the mysteries
of God. "God is a Spirit," says the
scripture. His divine existence is one that
can only be perceived, believed on a non-sensing
level. If I say that I know God, whom you neither
know nor see, you can only judge my assertions
on the basis of my personal credibility. Some
spokes persons for God or more credible than
others. The early apostles did not so much
argue the existence of God as a theory or concept
but to prove His existence by supernatural
attestations, demonstrating the Power of God.
(1Corinthians 2). So we have the matter of
proving to a materialistic non believing world
that God is real and that He still has a part
in the day to day affairs of this world and
We are given understanding in the light of Jeshua (Jesus) in a line by line, precept upon precept, understanding that Jesus is the Word of God, Itself the greatest mystery. For when the Scripture is made known in its completeness we shall See Him as He IS.
The following writings deal with the subject of Mysteries. They do little more than introduce the topics of God's mysteries, some of the mysteries. There remains, more, much more to be gleaned within these domains of study. Moreover, there are likely more and more mysteries and mysteries within mysteries which will come into our field of view in due time. Revelation is progressive and always deepening as His truth is being revealed by God's Holy Spirit in God's divine time. God is withholding certain things from us because it is not yet His time. Contrary to some ecclesiastical authorities we do not have all the answers (facts) as to Who God is and what His complete plan is for His Body, The Church (another mystery).
