John 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV); 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Without beating too much around the bush, let us dive right into the meat of the matter. The Passage above enables us to understand that the Word of God is God. For us to further understand this, let us imagine that we are making an Application, purchasing items, cashing a check or acting on behalf of someone else. It goes with out saying that in other to do these things, one would need at least a Letter of Authorization or something that proves that we are acting in consensus with the will of the person in question. In other words, even though the person that authorized one, with a check to collect money from his or her Account, or with a Letter of Authority to perform a certain action/task in his or her name is not physically Present, one is still able to operate as if the authorizer in question were present or as we and the authorizer were one and the same person.
The Word of God in my Opinion can be equated to a Letter of Authority from God. For when a Christian is imbibing and Operating with the Word of God. It is equivalent to him of her operating as a god. For according to the scripture above, the Word of God contains life and that life is that light of men. Therefor the amount of light we wield is dependent on the depth or amount of the Word of God we Practice.
Mind you there is a difference between reading, understanding, writing, preaching and actually practicing the Word of God. Knowing and understanding the Word of God are very necessary, but at the end of the day, it is putting the Word to use consciously and subconsciously that bring fort fruits.
Matthew 7:15-20 New King James Version (NKJV);15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Therefor I employ everyone to read and understand the word of God with the help of the Holy Spirit.
