“WHO – is the Word of God? – 101” …Blog.
*** (1Thessaloninans 5:21) Prove all things, hold fast to the good.
*** (Acts 17:10-11) And the brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night; to Berea. They, when they arrived, went into the synagogue of the Jews.
(Acts 17:11) And these were more noble, than those of Thessalonica; in that they ‘received’ the Word; with ‘all’ readiness of mind; and ‘searched’ the Scriptures ‘daily’; to see if those things were so [or Not!].
One Christmas as a child… of about 7 or 8… I opened a Christmas present; to find one of those “1,000 piece puzzles”. Of course the excitement of Christmas for a child overwhelmed me with the ‘Task’ of putting one of those puzzles together. The puzzle was a brand new one; and I cut the tape and opened the box… only to find a thousand pieces; of the Picture on the front of the box. Some weeks later it was complete; and the joy of Christmas ‘did not’ motivate me to again… assemble those thousand pieces! Later in adult life someone gave me one… without all the pieces! What a disappointment to spend all that time… and have an Incomplete Picture! That is sort of how those… “Secrets”… are in the Holy Word of God. They ‘do not’ come with ease… but by with leadings by the Holy Spirit of God; to those who are “Truly His children!” Can find out God’s Truth; found in His Holy Word? Is the Bible… just a Book… or does it have the “Complete Authority” of God Himself…? Is “Christ Jesus”… the “Living Word of God”… Incarnate in a human body…? Is He; the Passover Lamb of God… “1Corinthains 5:7”…?
*** (John 1:1-to-5) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(Joh 1:2) He was in the beginning with God.
(Joh 1:3) All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.
(Joh 1:4) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
(Joh 1:5) And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it.
*** (Colossians 1:12-to-20) giving thanks to the Father; Who has made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.
(Col 1:13) For He [God] has delivered us from the power of darkness; and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son [Christ Jesus];
(Col 1:14) in Whom; we have redemption; through His blood; the remission of sins.
(Col 1:15) Who is the image of the invisible God, the First-born of all creation.
(Col 1:16) For ‘All things’ were created in Him; the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth; the visible ‘and’ the invisible; whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; ‘All things’ were created through Him and for Him.
(Col 1:17) And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.
(Col 1:18) And He is the Head of the body, the church, Who is the Beginning, the First-born from the dead, that He may be pre-eminent in all things.
(Col 1:19) For it pleased the Father [God]; that in Him [Christ Jesus]; all fullness should dwell.
(Col 1:20) And through Him [Christ Jesus] having made peace through the blood of His cross; it pleased the Father [God] to reconcile all things to Himself; through Him [Christ Jesus]; whether the things on earth or the things in Heaven.
*** (John 1:14-to-17) And the Word became flesh, and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and of Truth.
(John 1:15) John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying; This was He of whom I spoke: He who comes after me has been before me, for He was preceding me.
(John 1:16) And out of His fullness we all have received; and grace for grace.
(John 1:17) For the Law came through Moses; but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
*** (Revelation 19:11-to-16) And I saw Heaven opened. And behold, a white horse! And He sitting on him was called Faithful and True. And in righteousness He judges and makes war.
(Rev 19:12) And His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head many crowns. And He had a name written, one that no one knew except Himself.
(Rev 19:13) And He had been clothed in a garment dipped in blood; and His name is called: The Word of God.
(Rev 19:14) And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
(Rev 19:15) And out of His mouth goes a sharp sword; so that with it He should strike the nations. And He will shepherd them with a rod of iron. And He treads the winepress; of the wine of the anger and of the wrath of Almighty God.
(Rev 19:16) And He has on His garment; and on His thigh a name written; KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
*** (Ephesians 6:16-17) Above all; take the shield of faith, with which you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
(Eph 6:17) And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit; which is the Word of God,
About now… one can readily see… that the “Holy Word of God”… is our “Only Point of Reference; about God and His dealings with mankind. There are… “Many Religious People”… who ‘Do Not’ hold to the… “Complete Authority of God’s Holy Word!” Their ‘Religion’… causes them to believe… ‘Only Church Teachings’… and to put them “Before–God’s Holy Word!” Do you believe what Christ Jesus said…? Or do you… ‘Pick & Choose’… which Bible verses to ‘Believe’…? With God… it is just as “Christ Jesus”… ‘Said’… “It is Either All – or None!” Christ Jesus spoke in; and with the “Complete Authority of the Holy Word of God!” “Nothing More… Nothing Less!” So why is it that… ‘You’… will ‘not’ believe His Holy Word…? Why is it ‘You’ believe what… ‘Your Religion Teaches’… that is in “Direct Conflict & Contradiction”… with the Holy Word of God…? Please tell me… “Why?”
*** (Matthew 4:4) But He [Christ Jesus] answered and said; It is written, “Man shall not live by bread alone; but by ‘every word’ that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”
*** (Deuteronomy 8:3) And He [God] humbled you and allowed you to hunger; and then He fed you with manna, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know it; so that He might make you know; that man ‘shall not’ live by bread alone; but by ‘every word’ that comes out of the mouth of LORD man shall live.
*** (Luke 4:4) And Jesus answered him [Satan], saying; It is written that “man ‘shall not’ live by bread alone; but by ‘every’ Word of God.”
*** (1Sa 3:21) And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD ‘revealed’ Himself; to Samuel in Shiloh; ‘by’ the Word of the LORD.
*** (Joh 17:17) Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
(Joh 17:18) As You [God] have sent Me [Jesus] into the world; even so I have sent them into the world.
(Joh 17:19) And I sanctify Myself for their sakes; so that they also might be sanctified in Truth.
*** (2Timothy 3:15-16-17) and that from a child you have known the Holy Scriptures; which are able to make you wise to salvation; through faith in Christ Jesus.
(2Tim 3:16) All Scripture is God-breathed; and is profitable for doctrine; for reproof; for correction; for instruction in righteousness,
(2Tim 3:17) that the man of God may be perfected; thoroughly furnished to every good work.
*** (2Peter 1:16-to-21) For ‘not having’ followed fables; having been cunningly devised, but becoming eyewitnesses of the majesty of Jesus Christ, we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord.
(2Pe 1:17) For He received honor and glory from God the Father; when was borne to Him a voice from the Excellent glory, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” [Matthew 17:1-to-8 & Mark 9:1-to-9]
(2Pe 1:18) And we heard this voice being borne from Heaven; being with Him [Christ Jesus] in the holy mountain.
(2Pe 1:19) We also have a more sure Word of prophecy, to which you do well to take heed, as to a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Daystar [Christ Jesus] arises in your hearts,
(2Pe 1:20) knowing this first, that ‘no prophecy’ of the Scripture came into being; of its own private interpretation.
(2Pe 1:21) For prophecy ‘was not’ borne at any time; by the will of man; but holy men of God spoke; being borne along by the Holy Spirit.

Will we ‘ALL’ stand before God… to be ‘Judged’ in the “Last Day”…? Surely “IF” you ‘believe’ the Bible and ‘believe’ what Christ Jesus said… “THEN”… that is a “Fact!” Even ‘IF’… you ‘Do Not’ believe that… “His Holy Word–Does say that ‘WE–ALL’ Will!” And that is a “FACT!” In that ‘Last Day’… “WHAT”… will HE use ‘to judge’ “ALL” mankind…? Do you know what “Christ Jesus” said… will be ‘USED’…? Do you ‘want’ to Know…? “Regardless”… He: Christ Jesus… told us… in “His Holy Word”…!

(John 12:49) For I [Christ Jesus] have not spoken of Myself; but the Father [God]; Who sent Me; gave Me a command; ‘what’ I should say; and ‘what’ I should speak.

(1Cor 3:12) And if anyone builds on this foundation; gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble,
(1Cor 3:13) each one's work shall be revealed. For the [Last] Day shall declare it; because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is.
(1Cor 3:14) If anyone's work which he built remains; he shall receive a reward.
(1Cor 3:15) If anyone's work shall be burned up; he shall suffer loss. But he shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
