“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”
• John 1 v 5 (NIV)
When reference is made to the Word, often times, we are referring to God Himself. God makes it astutely clear that He is His Word. The Word, he gave to us through the manifestation of His Son, Jesus Christ.
The name of God is His Word, hence, you can call upon God by calling upon His Word. Everything there to get on the path of God is emblazoned in His Word. Keeping to God’s Word is learning to be like God. Righteousness, faith and all there is to communing with God is buried deep in His Word. Anything outside of His Word is foreign to God.
“For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness [the Word] of God.”
• Romans 10 v 3 (KJV)
The Word of God is incorruptible. It is the marvelous and unquenchable light of God. It cannot be put to shame or made to be what it’s not. The Word of God is not just self-sufficient, it gives life and reproduces itself in the life of men. Every man has a signature of God’s Word in their life and the words of their mouth that is not synonymous to that of another man. This creates a distinction in the words that come out from our mouths. God hears us differently. For this reason, it is important that every man consciously acknowledges the fact that he has the unique Word of God (and hence, God) in him and identify with it.
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
• Luke 17 v 21 (KJV)
The Word of God in you is for you to draw men out of the darkness they are in and drive them to find their own light, to find the Word of God that has been embedded in them. That is your primary purpose. Charging up the word of God in you is your key to constant breakthrough and overcoming.
The Word of God is the son of God and sons of God are the Word of God. The Word of God working in your life is what makes you a son, for Jesus said that as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The Word of God is quick and powerful. It is a wonder drug, healing every spiritual, physical, economical, psychological, financial, family issues and more. It is all fulfilling. The Word of God is the heavenly constitution. How much you know and acknowledge of God’s Word is how much of your right you can exercise. You can summon God into your situation if you know His Word. He is His Word, there is no impossibility with Him.
The Word of God is all-inclusive matter. Through it, all things are made. It is matter-expressive. God is love, joy, peace, Alpha and Omega, omnipotent, omniscient, good, faithful, kind, the rock, merciful, King, Redeemer, Savior, Judge, man-eternal, unchangeable and so is His Word. Word-dwelling, word-believing, word-living, word-keeping gives rise to the expression of fullness and total health of a man’s entirety.
Doing the Will and living the Word of God is favor-purchasing. When you are faithful to God’s will and His word, only then have you purchased God’s favor and that every other being in the position to favor you.
