Jesus Christ IS God’s Word…
1IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. – John 1:1
The enemy has deceived us into believing that the bible itself is the Word of God. It is not. It contains the words of God, it is perfect, infallible and that is a wonderful thing. But Jesus Christ is the Word of God. And this is an important distinction, please let me explain.
Here is a book titled Steve Jobs
is that book itself actually Steve Jobs? No. It’s a book about Steve Jobs.
Here is a book titled “The Word of God”
is that book actually the Word of God (Jesus Christ)? No. It’s a book about the Word of God (Jesus Christ).
This is a very sneaky trick the enemy played on us to distract us from understanding that the entire bible, from beginning to end, speaks exclusively about Jesus Christ, not about itself. It has God’s perfect words about His Son, His relationship with His Son, and our relationship with Him and His Son Jesus Christ.
This trick even fooled the leader of major world wide denomination. I personally saw this man telling his congregation that the bible was a part of God and that it (the bible) was present before the world began. He had confused John 1:1 with the title on the front cover of the bible. He was leading his congregation astray.
The bible SPEAKS of Him
In Genesis after the serpent tricked Eve and then Adam fell, God said He will send Someone to crush the head of the serpent,
he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” – Gen 3:15
That Someone was Jesus Christ and He did it on the cross. We have to get that into our spirit. We must renew our minds. Don’t wait for it to happen… it happened! Don’t ask for it to happen… it already happened. Instead, receive it by faith.
When God was speaking to Himself about His creation, Jesus Christ was already present. The whole entire bible is about Jesus Christ, which is why it was titled “The Word of God” – and praise God it contains the words of God as well, and it is perfect and infallible!!
So why is it so important to get this right? Because a great truth is hidden from us until we get this sorted out…
so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. – Is 55:11
Who was that Word? Jesus Christ! And where is He now? He returned to the Father and is seated at the right hand of God right now. So look again at that verse… God’s Word that comes from His mouth WILL return to Him having accomplished that which He sent Him for. Jesus Christ ACCOMPLISHED what God sent Him for.
That scripture confirms that Jesus Christ achieved everything that His Father sent Him to do. Get it? Not one thing was left undone. Not one promise was left unfulfilled, for all people, for all time. Don”t wait for Jesus Christ to come again and do those things. God’s words in the bible are perfect and infallible. Jesus Christ DID what God sent Him to do, and “it is finished” – just as Jesus Christ confirmed as He hung on the cross.
Don’t lose all that He did for you!
Don’t let yourself be deceived and don’t faith to receive all your free gifts, your inheritance, which He made available to you!
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. – 2 Cor 1:20
Did you see that? They are done. And what is your contribution? You simply add your AMEN. “Amen” means to say “I agree” (or “So be it; truly”, “heartily agree”).
What is it when you heartily agree with something that God has said about His Son Jesus Christ? It’s faith. God once said to me: “Faith is what you agree is true”.
So let me ask you… DID Jesus fulfill the promise of God to send Someone to crush the head of the serpent? Answer: YES. He crushed the head of the serpent, just as God said He would. That is faith!
The reason faith is so greatly focussed on in the NT is because the promises that are now fulfilled by God through Jesus Christ are RECEIVED by faith, an abiding faith, a daily active faith, confident declarations over situations, declaring the truth, standing firm until it manifestly comes to pass in your life.
Hebrews 11 says that all the great people of the OT acted because of their faith. They acted because of the words of God (rhema). Now we act because of the Word of God (Jesus Christ).
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. – Hebrews 1:2
His work was perfect and complete. And everything He did is a free gift for all who receive it BY FAITH…
