Why it’s impossible to separate God and His word.

At the very start, the first verses of the bible say; “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1v1) this was the beginning of creation, but it wasn’t the beginning of God, He is outside of time and space, and He dwells in eternity. Long before He created the heavens and the earth, only the spiritual realm existed, this physical world we live in today hasn’t always existed, it was created.

Universe

Content Summary:

  • The Word is the same power tool with which God created the universe.
  • God’s plan is for us to create with our words, just like He creates with His words.
  • So there is a common denominator between the world of the spirit and this natural created world.
  • Being born again in the image of God is the choice that replaces the sin nature, with God’s nature.
  • Those words of creation were filled with God’s faith, He and His words are the same.
  • Jesus was our substitute.
  • Salvation is not something we deserve, nor is it something we can earn.

How was this physical world created, you may ask, and the answer is, by God’s words, when God said, “Let there be light” His words, slung this universe into existence from the image that was inside God. Those words of creation were filled with God’s faith, He and His words are the same.

So there is a common denominator between the world of the spirit and this natural created world. When God created man, He created him to be like Himself, and that is to be a living speaking spirit with the ability to create with words. Isn’t that incredible, God’s plan is for us to create with our words, just like He creates with His words.

The book of Genesis also tells us how man gave away his ability to speak things into being, Adam bowed his need to a spiritual outlaw, satan and this broke the connection between heaven and earth. There was now no one who could connect back to heaven, the Word that linked heaven and earth was broken, and therefore the communication between God and man was also broken.

Two hands

God didn’t abandon us; He puts into motion His plan of redemption, which he had in mind even before He created the world. Forty-two generations later, God’s words came to pass, His word became flesh in Jesus, who came to restore God original plan for man. In John 15:7 Jesus said, “If you remain in Me, and My words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it shall be done for you”. How is this possible? You might ask, it’s because the connection between heaven and earth is restored through Jesus, and so now God’s original plan for us to be able to speak things into existence with God’s faith was restored.

God’s plan would annihilate the devil’s grip of the law of sin and death on mankind and restore man into his rightful relationship and fellowship with our Father God.

God sent Jesus, who is “the Word” the same power tool with which He created the universe. When you receive Jesus, you become a son or daughter of God, just like Adam originally had, reconnected to your father by Jesus, the WORD.

God Himself intends His Word to bring to pass whatever we speak the moment our words of faith are released, the link has now been reconnected between heaven and earth.

When you receive what Jesus has done, you have become a son or daughter of God, and just like the first man Adam, you are reconnected by the power of the living word.

Concluding with a Gospel message:

When a person chooses to receive Jesus as Lord of their life, the bible says, they become a brand new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Being born again in the image of God is the choice that replaces the sin nature, with God’s nature.

A cross in the clouds

Salvation is a free gift that God offers us all because of His unconditional love through the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf: “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (Romans 5:8).

Salvation is not something we deserve, nor is it something we can earn. It is a gift that was purchased and paid for by the blood of Jesus. Through the cross, God laid the punishment for our sin on Jesus so that we might have right-standing with God through faith in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Jesus was our substitute. He took the pain, penalty, and punishment for our sin so that God could freely offer us salvation from our sin (Isaiah 53:3–5). “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Has anyone ever told you that God loves you and that he has a wonderful plan for your life? if you were to die this very second, do you know for sure beyond the shadow of a doubt that you would go to heaven?

What does the Bible say about this very important subject?
For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God… and the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord… and whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved… That’s you and me…

It’s important to realize that there is only one way to God, and that is through Jesus Christ, the Lord, and Savior of the world (John 14:6). The Word of God says if you believe with your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confess Jesus as your Lord, you will be saved (Romans 10:9–10).

God bless you,
