Planting God's Seed; Reaping A Harvest # 1 b
 

The eyes of the Lord are constantly upon the man (or woman) who has a reverence for God’s Word. The Lord says,  “ this is the man to whom I will look and have regard: he who is humble and of a broken spirit, and who trembles at My word and reveres My commands” ( Isaiah 66: 2).

Why is God’s Word so important? Because God’s Word proceeds from His very own mouth ( Mt 4: 4).

Firstly, IN HEAVEN JESUS IS CALLED THE ETERNAL WORD OF GOD

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

John 1:14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth

Rev 19:11 - 13 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

Many Christians, say, “I love Jesus” but do not give His Word any importance in their lives . My friend, it is impossible to love Jesus without loving the Bible. Jesus is the Living Word and the Bible is His Spoken Word. Both Jesus and His Word are eternal. You cannot really know Jesus without knowing His Word.

Ps 138:2 – “ For You have magnified Your  word  according to all Your name.”

Ps 119:89– “ Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.”

Secondly, THE WORD IS TRUE AND WILL NOT FAIL

Numbers 23:19God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

I Kings 8:56Blessed be the Lord, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

Thirdly ,THE WORD IS LIVING AND ACTIVE

Hebrews 4:12   “For the Word that God speaks is living and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the soul and  spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. “

The Greek word for living is ZOE and it means life giving. The Greek word for powerful is ‘ENERGES’ and it means energy giving.

There’s life and energy in the Bible. We read other books, but this book reads us. It’s incredible. It is saving to the sinner. I have used this book so many times to lead people to Christ and have seen them transformed.
