On the sermon in this post, we are going to answer the FAQ, why is Jesus called “the word of God”.
After answering this question we shall move on to see how this word was with God in the beginning, and also see how Jesus is the inventor of the very earth we live in and us.
Now during the creation story, God was always speaking to a person or persons; and this fact has caused so many people to assume who was really with God in the beginning.
Some say it was the angels and probably other heavenly beings, but after you finish reading this sermon; you will get to understand whom God was talking to, or probable referring to Us during the creation story.
Why Jesus is called the word of God.
Jesus is called the word of God because it was through Him that God created everything on earth as the scripture below confirms:
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.Collosians 1:16-17.
During the art of creation in Genesis 1, we repeatedly see how God said ‘let there be’ before any particular thing was created.
And it is this ‘let there be’ that is interpreted as the word of God.
And later on in this sermon, you will see how this word of God swung into action to create everything that God commanded.
How the word was with God in the beginning.
In Genesis 1:1-3, we can see how God used the spoken word to create everything.
According to the scriptures, He said “let there be and there was”.
Then in John 1:1-14, the Bible gives a complete narrative of how the word was in the beginning with God; and He used it in creating everything.
He stresses in verse 3 that there was nothing that was created without the word.
Specifically, it reveals in verse 14 that the word became flesh and dwelt among human beings.
The analysis in this chapter of the Bible clearly identifies Jesus as the word of God.
Verses 15 goes on to reveal that John spoke about this Jesus when he said that there is someone coming after him who is much greater because He (Jesus) existed before he (John) was born.
Revelation 19:11-13 reveals that “the word of God” is the hidden name of Jesus Christ.
How the word of God (Jesus) created everything that God commanded.
The secret behind the creation story is that when God commanded anything to come into existence, Jesus was the one who would do the invention.
The only confusing aspect of the creation story is the impossibility of Jesus finishing a particular creation in just one day.
But according to Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8; one day is like a thousand years in God’s eyes, and a thousand years is also like one day.
Psalm 139:12, says that God does not understand light and darkness.
According to science, the revolving of our earth around the solar system is what brings about the change in night and day across various locations in the world.
That is why other places experience day while others experience night all at the same time.
Now let’s see how the bible concludes this sermon for us.
