The Bible is a fascinating book, inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right (2 Timothy 3:16; NLT). It is the written word of God.
From the Bible, we learn that the Word of God is God himself i.e. Jesus Christ. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1), speaking about Jesus. Interestingly though, it is not only in the beginning that Jesus is known as the Word of God, but in the end as well. In the book of Revelation, when Jesus Christ is unveiled to the world in all of his glory as King of kings and Lord of lords and as Judge of the world, his name is called The Word of God (Revelation 19:13). In both, the genesis and consummation of God’s plan, we see Jesus Christ is The Word of God.
Points to ponder:
Do you have The Word of God in you? In other words, have you believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is The Word of God?
John 1:1 (KJV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Revelation 19:11-16 (KJV)
11 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.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
