Now during the creation story, we can all see that God was always speaking to a person or persons, and this fact has caused so many people to make assumptions about those who were really with God in the beginning.
One of the conventional assumption is that God was with the angels and probably other heavenly beings. But after you finish reading this sermon; you will get to understand who God was talking to, or probably who He was referring to Us during the creation story.
In the creation story we can see God bringing everything to life through the power of the spoken word, and this goes to say that the word God was using iduring the creation process was alive that was why it wsas able to bring other things that God commanded into life.
Now when you study John chapter one carefully, you will discover that the scripture accurately describes the word in the third-person perspective, and reveals in verse fourteen how the word became flesh and dwelt with human beings.
Before we however go into the sermon, let us first and foremost see the Bible verse which reveals that Jesus is the word of God.
Which Bible verse says Jesus is the Word of God?
Revelation 19:11-13 is the Bible verse that says Jesus is the word of God, it however describes it as His secret name which no one but Himself knows. Let us see how that Bible verse accurately describes Jesus as the word of God.
I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
Why Jesus is called the living word of God.
Jesus is called the living word of God because He was the spoken word or the “let there be” that God used in creating everything as we can see in the creation story recorded in Genesis chapter one and two.
As we observed earlier o in this beginning of this verse, when God said “let there be” and there was, it means that the word He uttered was alive and active as the Bible observes in Hebrews 4:12.
The gospel of Saint John takes the time to analyze in it’s first chapter how the Word of God was in the beginning with God and through Him everything both in heaven and on earth was made.
The book of Colossians 1:16-17 makes it more clearer when it says:.
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.
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 at 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.
Verse 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.
In John 6:63, our Lord Jesus said that the flesh will profit us nothing because it is the spirit that gives life, and the words He spoke unto us are the spirit that brings life.
This statement literally means that, if we are able to listen to and practice the words of Jesus Christ, it is going to help us escape or avoid the things that will shorten our life span on earth as well as help us to attain the eternal life which God has already designed for us in heaven.
Never forget that He was the one Who created all things on earth and therefore understands the things that are good as well as the things that are bad for us human beings.
May God help us all in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
