WORD OF GOD

Lets take the Bible for what it is; THE WORD OF GOD. No other book written can be called the Word of God. There are many books, I believe that have been inspired by God, but none that we can definitely call scripture (Word of God). The writers and other men greatly used by God, put the Bible as the Word of God and above all other writings. Everything else, even if it was inspired of God, still has the possibility of error, no matter how inspired, or how great the man of God was that wrote it. Webster dictionary says, scripture is “Appropriately, and by way of distinction, the books of the Old and New Testament; the Bible. The word is used, to denote the sacred writings or divine oracles, called sacred or holy, as proceeding from God and containing sacred doctrines and precepts. Compared with the knowledge which the Scriptures contain, every other subject of human inquiry is vanity and emptiness.”
A person will never accomplish a lot with God, unless they establish the fact the Bible is Scripture, and truly inspired of God by the Holy Spirit. 2Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private (personal) interpretation. :21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (KJV)
It is quoted that only until Billy Graham (as well as other men greatly used of God) established the fact the bible is the infallible Word of God, did God begin to greatly use them. God wants people to be sold out to him, but they must be people with a firm foundation to stand on and not be moved. We can only say that of the Bible. Anything else is subject to man’s interpretation. Jesus said, Matthew 7:24 Everyone, then, to whom my words come and who does them, will be like a wise man who made his house on a rock; :25 And the rain came down and there was a rush of waters and the winds were driving against that house, but it was not moved; because it was based on the rock.:26 And everyone to whom my words come and who does them not, will be like a foolish man who made his house on sand;:27 And the rain came down and there was a rush of waters and the winds were driving against that house; and it came down and great was its fall. (BBE) Not only are the sayings of Jesus the Word of God, but the entire Bible is the Word of God. In fact in John Ch 1;1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.:2 The same was in the beginning with God.:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (KJV) And in John 1:14 And the Word was made 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. (KJV) This is talking about Jesus, because Jesus is the Word and the Word is Jesus. The way we overcome in this life is by the Word of God (Bible) Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. (KJV)
We need to let the Bible teach us 2Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (KJV) There is no error in the Word of God, We can interpret it wrong. 2Timothy 2:15 Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing (correctly teaching) the Word of Truth. (MKJV) We must handle it accurately; we can also handle it inaccurately. Read it for what it says, not what you think it says.
We have to have the Word of God to grow spiritually just like a baby has to have milk. 1Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: (KJV) The Bible will show us how to be blessed, but we must be diligent to study it. Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man…:but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. :3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. (ESV)
God told Joshua to meditate on the Law, or Scriptures that Moses gave. Joshua 1:7 be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go.:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. (ESV) To be successful we must not only study the Word (Bible) but must do what it says, James 1:22 be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only (KJV)
In the book of Acts the scripture tell us because the people in Berea received the Word and studied it daily to see if what Paul was teaching was in agreement with the scriptures, they were better off. Act 17:11 These—(Bereans) were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. (KJV)
