Yes, there is a word from the Lord; 66 books of word which some have neglected to even crack open this morning. There are 66 books of what you should do, what you should not do, and promises of which if you do you will obtain good or evil.
There are 66 books in the Bible which if a person would heed can bring them great success, or should they neglect to obey will bring them swift destruction; 66 books in which one could find themselves and either correct what is wrong, or continue on the way in which they are going, because God has found some good in what they are doing. Certainly, there are 66 books in which one should deem as a mirror and pattern themselves after.
Yet constantly many are still asking of others: “Is there a word from the Lord?” Now we understand that the written Word of God is what is termed the Logos word, and the spoken or revealed Word of God is termed the Rhema word of God. If we have not done, obeyed, or personified the Logos word, why are we constantly seeking a Rhema Word from God? We must put first things first.
Therefore, if we have not yet perfected the written (Logos) Word of God, if we have not obeyed to the letter its commandment, if we are yet engaged in things which the written Word of God has commanded us not to do; why are we seeking that part which will in most cases take us back to the written word?
Many seek the Logos (spoken) Word of God, because they want words of peace. However, there are no words of peace because we are not in a time of peace, but in a time of war. For this is the time in which the Devil knows he has even a shorter time, and has raged war against the saints of God to cause them to turn back to the things they were once delivered from, or to cause them to compromise the Word of God to benefit their flesh. This a time in which the Body of Christ need to stop sitting on the sidelines, licking their wounds, nursing their hurts and pains, and stand up to the enemy who is diminishing the forces of the Lord.
So what if you were wounded; you’re not dead. So what if they took all your stuff; God has a mansion prepared for you, and he is using gold for building blocks. So what if many of your prayers didn’t get answered; “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him” (Psalms 126:6).
There is a Word from the Lord: “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh” (Matthew 24:44). There is an assignment from the Lord: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14) . There is a purpose for you in God: “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Galatians 5:1). “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:1-2).
It is time that we stop depending on the Word from the Lord that others have labored for, and begin to labor for our own Word from the Lord. Many are too dependent on those who have sacrificed themselves, those who have separated themselves unto the Lord, those who have fasted and prayed afflicting their souls to get to God, those who have sought first the Kingdom of God and all his righteousness, and gotten a Word from the Lord. Those who daily die to themselves and commit themselves to the things of God denying themselves the pleasures of this World, only so they can hear from their Lord for themselves.
If the Lord has a word for you from a particular vessel He will send that vessel to you; you won’t have to go and track them down, because the Lord Jesus will let them know exactly where you are. Therefore, begin to deny yourself, begin to separate yourself, begin to deny yourself the pleasures of this world, and seek God through his Logos word, through prayer and fasting, and the Lord will bear witness to the Word you have already within you.
No longer will you go and seek words of peace from the lying prophets who lie to you about who you truly are in God. Those prophets who cover up your sins for financial gain and keep you in a backslidden state, because they don’t know the truth, can’t see the truth, and are not of the truth. The truth is only found in the Word of God.
If you want a Word from the Lord; go to the Lord yourself.
