What the Word is and What the Word Does

          The Word is power.  The Word is alive. The Word is sharp.  The Word is sufficient.  The Word is adequate.  The Word is enough.  The Word is complete.  The Word is finished.  The Word is heaven’s standard and earth’s manual of operation. 

          The Word is life.  It is the very opposite of death, weakness, sickness, oppression, depression, possession and darkness.  The Word is the source, sustainer and fulfillment of life.  Without the Word inside of us, we are dead and not alive.  We are reduced to a biological, pulsating, breathing, moving piece of meat!   Without the Word we have absolutely no purpose, no plan and no reason for existence.  The Word is the difference between living and dying.

          The Word is the Way.  It is the Way to know God.  It is the Way to receive Jesus.  It is the Way to receive the Baptism in the Holy Ghost.  It is the Way to drive out devils.  It is the Way to heaven.  It is the Way to healing, wholeness and health.  It is the Way to marital happiness and harmony.  It is the Way to save your children and build a strong and loving family.               

          The Word is eternal, changeless, flawless, absolute, accurate and filled with power.  The Word is Heaven’s standard for Kingdom living.  It is the Standard by which everything else in Heaven and on earth is measured.  “What do you think about the economy?”  What do you think about the Middle East situation?”  What do you think about the political posture of our country?”  “What do you think about radical Islam and the terrorist situation?”  “What do you think about the future?”

 It does not matter what you think or what I think or what anybody thinks.  The only thing that matters is what the Word of God declares!  

          What we think comes out of our sense knowledge.  Our senses can lie to us and are constantly influenced by our external circumstances and surroundings.  To live by our senses is to be carnally (fleshly) minded and according to the Bible to be carnally minded is death.  

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Ro 8:6 

          The Word is creative.  It produces (1) faith, (2) the New Birth (3) Spiritual growth and development (4) a renewed mind (5) victory over the devil (6) Christ-likeness.  It births Churches and missionaries and mission projects.  The Word is Seed and what we sow, we grow.  When we sow the Word we produce exponentially what the Word produces. 

What the Word does

          The Word reveals.  It reveals:  (1) God the Father. (2) Jesus the Son.  (3) The Holy Ghost.  (4) The Purpose and Plan of God.  (5) The Future.  (6) The secret of success in this life and the next.  (7) The Will of God.  (8) The Way out.  (9) The Way in.  (10) The Way up, and  (11) the Way over.

          The Word reveals the Person and Work of Jesus Christ.  It is the perfect revelation of God; His person, His character, His nature and His works.  It reveals the miracle of Creation and the Will and eternal purpose of God in and through Creation.  

          The Word Creates.  It has created all that is and all that has been and continues to create the expansion of the stellar heavens.  Science declares that the creation is still in the process of being created… and it is being created and expanded at the speed of light.  The Word is “holding together” all things (planets, suns, moons, stars, galaxies, etc.) that exist.

And he (Jesus Christ the Living Word)  is before all things, and by him all things consist. Col 1:17 

           The Word creates the new birth, healing and health, wealth and prosperity, sustaining strength and continuing energy, youth, rest and refreshment, quickness of mind and creative thoughts and ideas. 

          The Word is presently working and producing in the life of every born again believer.  By and through the Word:

          (1) We live  and function in great confidence and assurance.  We know that God is for us and that we are born again to win.  We are assured through the Word that God will never leave us nor forsake us and that nothing can separate us from His great love.  (Rom 8:38-39)

          (2) We enjoy boldness in believing for big things and dreaming big dreams.  We understand by the Word that nothing is impossible and no obstacle it too great and no problem is too difficult.  Circumstances literally become stepping stones and hardships become opportunities.

          (3)  We walk in truth instead of facts.  We make facts submit to truth and line up with and agree with the Word of God.

          (4)  Worry, fear, panic, depression, anxiety, impatience… all these become strangers to us.  We live in the peace of God that works rest and comfort to our spirit, soul and body.  We never have any excuse for bad days or emotional “lows”… we live a conquering and overcoming life through the Word of God. 

          (5) We possess wisdom and revelation.  We do not waste time in “trial and error” situations, we operate with the Mind of Christ and in the Wisdom of God.  We do not live in the “just in case” mode, instead we live in the “so what!” mode.

How we activate the Word to work for us

          We decide to do something about our problems and refuse to continue to let issues rule and govern our living.   We decide to move out of negative situations and we refuse to remain complacent, static and stuck.  We understand that things will not change is we do not change.

          We make a determination to believe the Word…. no matter what!

          We strive to continually apply Word Truth to every situation and circumstance in our lives.

          We absolutely refuse to accept anything that does not agree with what the Word says about us as children of God.  Anything that does not agree with the Word (Truth) is a Lie and has its origin in the demonic kingdom of darkness.  We are to “put away”  (ap-ot-eeth’-ay-mee: to cast off) lying (the lie) and speak nothing but truth.  (Eph 4:25)

          We will stay in a place (church) where the Word of God is honored, esteemed and taught in all its fullness.  We will commit to a body of believers where there is anointed  Word teaching, Word preaching and fellowship around the Word. 

          We will take advantage of every opportunity to get the Word in us.  We will read it, listen to it, watch it, sing it, pray it, meditate it, post it in our home, in our automobile, our office, our work place and keep it before our eyes at all times. 

 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  John 1:1
