The Bible is the most amazing book in all of history. It took around 1600 years to finish and has 40 writers who all knew that it was not by their wisdom they wrote this book. They like Paul wrote in 2 Timothy chapter 3 that it was all inspired by the Spirit of God literally 'GOD BREATHED'
We have the Old Testament written in Hebrew
We have the New Testament written mostly in Greek with a little Aramaic
The Word of God was
INSPIRED / GOD BREATHED
PRESERVED AND PROTECTED
PRESERVED AND TRANSLATED
AND TO THIS DAY
ILLUMINATED AND PERPETUATED
ALL BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD
HEBREWS 4:12 TELLS US
''For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.''
2 TIMOTHY 3:15-17 SAYS
''and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.''
1 CORINTHIANS 2 SAYS
''but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.''
The above three passages tell us that the Word of God is alive/living and very powerful. That it is the voice of God , a revelation of God and was given by to us by the work of the Spirit of God.
This is the Word that you now know and are digging into. God has given us so much and seeks to get us into His word.
THE WORD OF GOD IS
Lets look at some of what the Word of God is
It is the Voice of God living and speaking (very words of God)
''And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.''
''Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.''
in quoting the Scriptures
''But about the Son he says,
"Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever,
and righteousness will be the scepter of your kingdom.''
''But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.''
'' Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message(word), and the message(word) is heard through the word of Christ.''
''Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.''
''The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.''
