WEAPONS OF WARFARE: THE WORD John (1:1-5, 14)

 

Jesus Christ is the spoken Word. He was with God since the beginning and everything was made through Him. He became flesh and dwell with us v14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth”.

In the armour of God mentioned in Ephesians 6, it is only the sword of the spirit which is the word of God that is an offensive weapon; V17b “and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”. The Word in the spirit realm is a sword which we attack and destroy the enemy and his works in the world. The Word has penetrating powers even in the lives of humans, Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Jeremiah 23:29 “Is not My word like a fire? Says the LORD, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” The word is like a hammer while problems are like rocks which the hammer breaks to pieces. If you have any challenge in life, there are particular Words in the bible that are antidote for it, that will break it to pieces. You only need to search the Words out to use it against those problems. For example, there are three hundred and sixty-five “fear not” in the whole of the bible. Each is to defuse the daily fear that may want to come against you. Jesus has already made provision against any problem that may want to arise against us.

Apart from the Logos which is the written word, there is the Rhema i.e. the spoken word. It is the personal Word you hear directly from God or through another medium. It may not have been written down but it will never contradict the written word and it will always perform what it is sent to do. Psalm 107:20 “He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”.

Be Word-full in other to live a victorious life.

 

Prayer point: by the power in the Word, I am what I am destined to be in Jesus name.
