Who Is The Word of God

Is Jesus The Word of God or Is The Bible?

Ever engage in a converstaion (or overheard a conversation) where individuals would refer to the Bible as “The Word?’

Better yet, have you sat within a church building, Kingdom Hall, or other Christian establishment where Pastors, Preachers, and Elders mention in their sermons and talks that the Bible is The Word of God?

Do you see mentioned in literature and publications that the Bible is The Word of God?

Is any of this accurate?

Is it written anywhere in this book called the Bible that “The Bible” is The Word of God?” Many would say, yes. They often refer to what is written at 2 Timothy 3:16 where it is written that …

All scripture is given by inspiration of God …

However, it does NOT say that “The Bible” is given by inspiration of God. It is assumed that the Bible is scripture. Who made the determination that The Bible is scripture? God or men? What is scripture?

Who did God give to the world of mankind, His Son or a book that came on the scene some 1500 years after Christ ascended?

Can both Christ and a book be The Word of God? Who did God tell us to listen to at Luke 9:35, a book or His Son?

Who authorized a Son? Who authorized a book?

Who named this book? Who called it, holy? Who called it, scripture? Who decided only 66 smaller books would make up its canon? Who called it The Word of God? Did God? Or, did men do these things?

Questions one should seriously ponder as a great deceptive work of misleading the masses away from that which is truthful. Not just the truth about the Creator of the heavens and the earth and His Son, but about everything in the earth, on the earth, its origins, our origins, and the in the heavens themselves.

It is not about religion, its about the truth.

Please watch the video as attempted to answer some of the questions raised above.

  1. If you didn’t read the Bible Tell me how did you learn
    About god and Jesus Christ you Can only learn
    By reading the Book You can’t beleave everything man tell You just what you are saying About the Bible,make every man liar
    Says the lord.

    1. I did not say I did not read the Bible. I have have read and studied it many times over. I do not discourage reading the Bible. It is very important to understand what the Bible is and what it is not.

      God did not send to us a book called the Bible. Men did. Men gave it that name and promoted it as holy and the Word of God. The Bible contains “some” of the teachings and sayings of Christ. But others are speaking in it, too.

      God sent us His son and he alone is The Word of God.

      Many ask, “How else can you learn, know God, and Christ’s teachings if you do not read the Bible?” (I get this question a lot)

      My response is who tells people that it must be from a book? Men do! God does not tell us that. He tells us to listen to His Son. He did not say read the words written down in a book. Do you or I “listen” to someone speaking with us through books? No, we listen to them with our ears.

      Then someone will say, “Well, Jesus is not with us, so I need to read the Bible.”

      Herein, lies the problem in the world. Jesus, the man, died, resurrected, transformed, and ascended, he never left us. He is no longer a man on earth. He returned to the place and to the form he was in before he was sent to into the world.

      Because one cannot see him (like one cannot see God) doesn’t mean he is not there and unable to teach us?

      As an example: After Christ ascended, who enabled his disciples in the upper room on Pentecost 33 CE to instantly speak in languages they never learned? Christ did! (Acts Chapter 2)

      Jesus promised that he would always be with us. So from the heavenly/spiritual realm, he sent his disciples Holy Spirit.

      So, my primary source of knowledge and understanding does not come from a book. It comes from having faith that my Master still teaches powerfully through His Fathers unseen Holy Spirit.

      This requires faith because it cannot be seen.

      Jesus warned about not having faith. It is impossible to please and worship God without. Ones worship, prayers, etc would all be in vain.

      What stands in the way today with people cultivating this faith are religions, their many rituals and requirements for membership, and something they can “see” and read. A modern day Golden Calf they they have made The Word of God, the Bible.

      Back in Moses day when his brother Aaron made a golden calf, it was not the fashioning of the calf that was wrong, it is what the people made of it, a god.

      Likewise, with the Bible, it is not that men complied it and gave it a name that was wrong. What was and is wrong is what many make of it. They call it holy and the Word of God.

      A Sacred Secret: Prayer to the Father, through Christ, is the best way to gain Gods wisdom, understanding, and knowledge and be taught by Christ.

      Most people do not understand the power of prayer and they misuse it. Few really rely on it receive the intangible things I mentioned above. Instead, they go to what they can see, a book.

      Most do not walk by faith. They walk by sight.

      True taught ones (disciples) of Christ will be not believed but noticed by this world. The teachings they have received will be not be believed as being from Christ. Those teachings go against the established teachings and things in the world. Christ’s true disciples will be noticed because they speak differently than the world.

      The many claiming to be Christians (something Jesus never commanded) will not believe what I write and say. I expect that. But THEY will notice what I say because I claim to be a disciple of Christ and it goes against what is established by the world that Jesus said his kingdom is no part of. Somehow, it agitates and even angers some of them. If they truly had Holy Spirit within them they would not be agitated. The Holy Spirit cannot be agitated. Another spirit within them can be agitated, however.

      I know this is a long reply. But just as we are not to put our trust in men (to whom the Bible came from), we must place our trust in God who His Son came from.

      Listen to Christ in a spiritual way. Ask and receive incredible knowledge, wisdom, and understanding through prayer. It works. Rely on it.

      Do not get caught up in the trap of debating what “the Bible” says. Those discussions are not fruitful and do not bring true discipleship to Christ. They amount to the same types of debates and arguments we see on TV and news media of individuals arguing and talking over one another in order to win and argument. It is an ugly scene.

      Christ’s teachings are powerful and true. The truth needs no defense.
