What Is God’s Word?

Posted by Job on March 1, 2007

Genesis 15:1 – After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. 

It may seem odd that the theme scripture for a discussion in our Jesus Christ series comes from the Old Testament, especially Genesis, for many Christians are taught by religious tradition and Bible scholars that two thirds of the Holy Trinity – Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit – are not present or are explicitly mentioned in the Old Testament or during the old covenant except glimpses and brief ethereal mentions during the prophetic books. Now, such incorrect teaching is precisely what leaves so many Christians, those who have been going to church two and three times a week, with so little knowledge and faith. It leaves them susceptible to atheists, devil – worshippers, and witches masquerading as “revisionist” theologians and historians who claim to “discover” that notions such as the divinity of Jesus Christ, literal interpretation of scripture, and the Holy Trinity being inventions of the first century Catholic church. But the truth is that Jesus Christ was always present, and the Holy Spirit was always present. God is the Father, the Creator, the Source. Jesus Christ is the Word of God. And the Holy Spirit acts on The Word of God to do the Will of God. Have you heard the humanistic “philosophical” statement (which is reality the sin of idolatry and vanity through self – worship) “I think, therefore I am”? Well, God is the thinker. Jesus Christ is the words that God thinks. And the Holy Spirit is the “I am!”God decides what He wants to do. Jesus Christ is that decision. The Holy Spirit is what goes out and gets the job done. 

That is why the Holy Spirit is within us. God decides what He wants of us. Jesus Christ is what God decides. And the Holy Spirit in us tells us how, when, and where to do what God wants. Once a Christian realizes that, he should know that he cannot fail should he merely do the will of God! Once a Christian realizes that, he should know that refusing to do the will of God is folly! Now realize that The Word of God, Jesus Christ, does not return empty. It cannot, for Jesus Christ is not empty. It was not some empty suit up there on
Calvary dying for your sins. It was not some dry bones healing the sick,  raising the dead, and casting out Satan. It was not some pronouncement, some amalgamation of myth, superstition, and tradition from some Vatican Council teaching in the synagogues at the age of 12, walking on water, feeding the five thousand plus women and children, turning water into wine, rising on the third day and ascending into Heaven. It was The Word of God! It is the Word of God that is going to come back one day to rule the nations with a rod of iron. It is by believing on the Word of God that we have all power, including over devils, sickness, man, and death. It is by believing on the Word of God that we are saved. It was the Word of God that was rejected, spat upon, mocked, beaten, betrayed, denied, abandoned, and slain. It is by the stripes on the Word of God that we are healed! So, of course God’s Word is not going to be made null because you decide that you want to act up and not do right. The Holy Spirit will just find another person, another way, and that person or way will be the one blessed on earth and in Heaven for doing the Will of the Father. Either way it is going to get done, so why not make it you so you can get the credit?  

You must understand that Jesus Christ could not fail because He was the Word of God, and as the Word of God He was inextricably tied to the Holy Spirit of God, and hence God would not allow Him to fail. So if you accept the Word of God through believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died because it was the Will of God and rose again through the power of God, then you have that same Holy Spirit within you. You have that same connection to God that Jesus Christ did. So whatever you do at the Direction of God, in the Will of God, in the Name of God, it cannot fail! A lot of people have been given false teaching about how it is a function of your faith. IT IS NOT A FUNCTION OF YOUR FAITH! They tell you that you cannot do certain things because you lack faith because that is what Satan wants you to believe. Satan wants to either stop you from trying, or to get you to work in the flesh on his turf. But God does not depend upon you. You are not a function of God. God does not depend on you. Man did not create God, God created man! So doing the Will of God is NOT a function of your faith; it is a function of your OBEDIENCE! So why do you need faith? You need faith to OBEY! You need faith to keep trying, without giving up, until that breakthrough comes!

Satan MUST yield to the Word of God and the Will of God. Whenever an agent of
Babylon comes up on someone with strong faith, they know that they have no chance so they leave immediately. But when an agent of
Babylon comes up with someone with weak faith, they decide, “Hey, maybe if I will stay here and be persistent, that person of little faith won’t put up much of a fight.” When that happens, it is not God’s will failing! What happens is that YOU lapse into DISOBEDIENCE because of YOUR lack of faith! If God wants that mountain to move and you go and tell it to move, if you have to stand there for 100 years telling it to move, do it! That mountain will move for God’s Will shall be done! Receive the Word of God through Jesus Christ. Find out the Will of God through Jesus Christ. And allow the Holy Spirit to guide you to enact the Will of God. It is not by you that these things are done, it is through God. God just wants a man on the ground, a physical body to work through in the spiritual realm. Why? Why ask why? It is so because that is how God wants it to be. That is all that you need to know.  

People in the Body of Christ tell you that you have Christ in you, but they do not tell you what it means. They tell you that you have Christ in you, and then tell you to go read the Bible to get The Word, or go listen to a preacher to get The Word. You cannot get The Word from a fallible man. You cannot get The Word from a book translated and published by fallible man. When you have Christ in you, you already have The Word in you! Does that mean that you should not listen to preachers or read the Bible? God forbid! Those things are exceedingly useful and helpful to you. But your Bible did not die on the cross for you and rise again, and neither did your preacher. Jesus Christ did those things, because Jesus Christ is The Word, and you need to believe upon and accept Jesus Christ even if you never hear another preacher or read the Bible again in your life. Christ is the Word, the Word is Christ, and it is through The Word of God that we are given life, that we overcome, that we will do God’s will and never fail, and we will rise again (or be raptured) and live forever with God in Heaven!  

But let me tell you something else. This might offend many in the Christian community, go against all theology and doctrine, and just turn all these churches inside out, but it is still true. OBEDIENCE is more important than faith. If God tells you to do something, then obviously it is something that He wants done. But since God’s Will depends upon HIM and not on YOU, then if you go do it even without believing, it will be done anyway! Why? How? Because it is God’s Will! Do you think that God will decide something and then just change His Mind just because YOU don’t believe? Why? You are not God! You are not God’s equal! God does not bow to you and serve your pleasure! You bow before Him and do His bidding! Or at least you will if you have any brains about you at all! The best example of this is Sarah. God told Sarah that she was going to have a child. Sarah never believed. She even had Abraham father Ishmael with Hagar because she did not believe. She thought that Ishmael was going to carry on the line and be the recipient of God’s covenant with Abraham. Because of her unbelief, she would later have to throw out her faithful servant and a young child to die so that Ishmael and Hagar would not take the family name and inheritance with her son. Fortunately for Hagar and Ishmael, God did not punish them for Sarah’s faithlessness! But despite Sarah’s lack of faith, she still obeyed. She continued sexual relations with Abraham. And yes, she had Isaac. Isaac was not the fruit of her disobedience! God forbid! Isaac happened because it was GOD’S WILL, and GOD’S WILL was going to be done!  

So do not ever let anyone tell you that you cannot do something because you do not have the faith. All you have to do is accept Christ, hear your Word from the Lord through the Holy Spirit, and do what the Holy Spirit says. Even though you may be weak in the knees, scared gutless and witless, all tongue – tied and graceless, if you do what God tells you to, it will be done! The people who tell you that you cannot do something because you lack the faith, it is THEY who lack the faith. Those people are still trying to mix oil and water, spirit and flesh. They are still trying to make things a function of man. They look at these great ministries that God has used people to build up on this earth and say “That must be a great man of God.” Quit putting MAN on a pedestal! Quit worshipping MAN. Quit making these preachers into idols! That is not what the preachers themselves want! Worship GOD! Know that these preachers did these great things and received great things not because of their greatness! They did and received these things because they OBEYED the One God who is great! And so as they did, so can you! So go, in the Name of The Word Of God which is Jesus Christ, and do His Will! 

Prayer:

Father God in the name of Christ Jesus, please help me to have faith in Jesus Christ, which is your word, and then to obey and do your will. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen! 

Deliverance:

The demons that work in this area are idolatry, false teaching, false doctrine, disobedience, and faithlessness. Please read the Basic Spiritual Warfare guide to learn more about how to go against these demons to help set captives free and win battles in the name of your God through the power, authority, and victory given to you by his Son Jesus Christ and by his blood shed for you!
