8-THE WORD

THE WORD IS GOD SPEAKING TO YOU—Part 2
Heb 4:9-13; 1Thes 5:23; Eccl 12:7
Hebrews 4:9-13 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. (10) For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. (11) Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. (12) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (13) Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
1Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

WE ARE HEALED BY THE WORD
Psalm 107:20-21, He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. (21) Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
How few have realized that it is the Word that heals us.
We talk about faith in the Word – nothing wrong in that –
... but it is when Isa 53:4 becomes a reality in our spirit, that it operates in our physical bodies.
He was stricken and smitten with our diseases and sins.
Isa 53:4-5 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows – {"borne our sicknesses and carried our diseases" [marginal rendering]}: – yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. (5) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

And then the Word declares in the fifth verse, Isa 53:5 "By His stripes we are healed."
We read it and meditate upon it, and we know that it is true.
Jeremiah 1:12 (ASV), "I watch over My Word to perform it."

We know that the Father watches over His Word and that He will make that Word good in us.
He said, "Surely He hath borne our sicknesses and carried our diseases."
God did not intend that sins, sicknesses and diseases be a part of us because He put our sins, sicknesses and diseases on Jesus –
"made Him to be sin on our behalf; that we might become the Righteousness of God in Him" (2Corinthians 5:21).

Since Christ carried all of these sicknesses, diseases and sins, and we are the righteousness of God in Christ,
Satan attacks our humanity and desires to destroy our faith, righteousness and health.
John 10:10-11 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (11) I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

Satan has no dominion over the Righteousness of God unless we give it to Him.
lt is the Word that has made us know this.
It is the Word that has saved us, recreated us, and it is the Word that heals us now.
It is the Word that makes us more powerful than Satan, because the Greater One lives inside.
1John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

The key is "overcoming"
Mark 16:17-20, And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; (18) They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. (19) So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. (20) And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

It is the Word that has taught us —
1. the value of the Name,
2. the authority of the Name, and
3. our legal right to the use of the Name.
So it is the Word in reality that has healed us.

WE KNOW THE FATHER THROUGH THE WORD
John 16:27-28, "For the Father Himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came forth from the Father."
John 17:23, "That the world may know that Thou didst send Me, and lovedst them, even as Thou lovedst Me."
John 14:23, "If a man love Me, he will keep My Word: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make our abode with him."

  • These three scriptures prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Father loves His children, these New Creation folks, as much as He loved Jesus, and that it is a joy to make His home with them.
  • What would it mean to have the Father and Jesus both living in your home?
  • It would insure the rent, the taxes, and all the bills, because the Father would pay His way and enable you to meet every obligation.
  • How intimate He wishes to become with us. (Matthew 6:31-33.)
    Matthew 6:31-33 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (32) (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (33) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

FAITH COMES THROUGH THE WORD 
These three Scriptures mean nothing until we act on them!
Romans 10:8, "The Word of Faith which we preach."
Hebrews 12:2, "Looking unto Jesus the Author and Perfecter of our Faith."
Mark 16:18, "They shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover."
This means nothing until we act on it.
"In My Name they shall cast out demons."

The scripture means nothing until we act on it.
John 15:16, "That whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My Name He will do it."

All Scripture is useless, and dead, to anyone that does not act on them.
It is acting on the Word that builds faith in the believer.
You may have all the promises;
You may have the mighty Spirit dwelling in you;
But if you do not act on the Word, God is impotent to help you.
Every promise of God to the believer is powerless, until we act on what the Word decrees for us to do!
Acting on the Word makes Jesus vitally real to the believer.
2Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

THE WORD IN OUR MOUTH AND ON OUR LIPS
Romans 10:9-10, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
It is the Word in my lips that counts.
The Word becomes a living thing on the lips of the believer;
The Word brings the unsaved man under conviction;
The Word gives him faith to act on the Word;
The Word causes the believer to "trust in the Lord with all his heart."
(Pro. 3:5) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Your word becomes God's Word, and your lips become God's Ambassador.
God's Word in your mouth, fresh from the love in your heart, burns in the heart of the hearer.

FEEDING ON THE WORD
Matthew 4:4, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."
Jeremiah 15:16, "Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy words were unto me a joy and the rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Thy name, O Jehovah, God of hosts."
Psalm 78:24-25, "And He rained down manna upon them to eat, and gave them food from heaven. Man did eat the bread of the mighty."
Job 23:12, "I have not gone back from the commandment of His lips; I have treasured up the words of His mouth more than my necessary food."
