The Word of God: its read, committed to memory, debated, interpreted, philosophized, used as a metaphor for all our issues, believed on, but rarely personified.
The scripture says: In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word Was God, John 1:1. A little ways down it says: “and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.”(John 1:14) This means that Jesus not only lived the Word, he was the Word, and he performed the Word. In other words, he couldn’t help but do the things he did, because that’s who he is. His walk was to demonstrate what we would have the power to do, if we allowed the Word to be personified within us. The things he did, the words he preached was not only to prove he was sent by God, but to demonstrate the power and authority allotted to everyone that would believe in his name and do his works. In other words do what he did.
This was his purpose for coming into the world, to redeem us back to himself and to demonstrate that power we would have after his death, resurrection, and ascension.
Here is the thing, the Word of God is not a metaphor for our life issues, nor is it to be debated and interpreted as it is today. Jesus said if you have the faith of a grain of mustard seed we can say to the mountain, be removed and cast into the sea, and it would obey. The mountain then has become our trials and tribulations, which are not mountains at all, but construction materials. This means that if there is a literal mountain in your way (now the reason you want the mountain moved has to be real, it can’t be some imaginary reason you want the mountain moved) you can speak to that mountain and tell it to move, telling it where to go, believing with no doubt, and it would obey your voice. This is the power and authority you have as a born again believer. In other words, if the (real not metaphoric) mountain is blocking your path to fulfilling God’s commands then speak to the mountain and command it to move, but you have to tell the mountain where to move to.
Some of you are shaking with disbelief even now. This is why you can’t see the power of God in your life. The Word only has power when it is performed, when it is walked out in faith with no doubt. Jesus said: “And these signed shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. 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.” (Mark 16:17-18) These are not metaphors, these are real and tangible.
So here it is: Your sickness; diabetes, cancer, arthritis, schizophrenia, and all manner of what we call diseases are actually demons in all their forms. These things should not reign over a child of God therefore, if these are in your body, speak to it and command the spirit of infirmity to leave, if you don’t have the faith, then go and get others who do, and the prayer of faith shall save the sick.
Faith is not you praying and waiting for the results, faith is you praying having seen the results before it appears. Faith is proactive, not passive.
So here’s the sum, don’t just live the Word, do the Word, perform the Word, speak the Word, and personify the Word. You wouldn’t have to carry the Word, if you would personify the Word. Meaning you need to become the Word, to see the Word performed in your life on a regular basis, and not just in a season.
