What, who, is Jesus? In John 1:1-4, we are told Jesus is The Word. What does that mean? In Psalm 40:7. We are told He comes in the volume of a book which speaks of Him. Would that mean Jesus is a Word in the Bible?
Remember, you are created in the image and likeness of God. And He is the Author and finisher of our faith. He is The Word, who was once God, and we are a Word as well?
This is a lot to wrap our brains around. I don’t know about you, but sometimes my brain seems too small for such matters. So in the Bible, we set out to find The Word of God that was God, was with God etc.. So we can make Jesus our God. A lot to learn.
To start with, I can only think of one thing God had to say. That was upon the mount, to the people of Israel. In fact God gave us His Word again when He wrote the same Word He spoke upon that mount. In fact the only Word God gave us at all is and was The Ten Commandments. Spoken, Written, and made flesh.
So it looks like Jesus is the Ten Commandments. No wonder we are told to wear Him, put Him upon our gates etc.. People claim Jesus as their Lord, yet it is the Lord who tells us to put on The Commandments.
I am not sure about you, but I am sure the Lord our God knows what He is doing. Sometimes we just have to trust Him see us through. After over two thousand years, we remain with no more hope than most the world. No more faith or love than an atheist.
If one argued the point of that being in the OT. Then why aren’t we doing as Jesus Himself said when He told us to keep His words (I would assume, from the mount as well, being the Sermon on the Mount) even as He kept His Father’s.
We aren’t doing anything. Afraid to work? Why? Aren’t we to be judged by our works? What better works could one have if we get counsel from the Written Word. From the Lord our God, those who went before us?
I don’t know about you but personally I don’t want to rest in Jesus, nor in peace. I want to fight the evil that is overtaking our families, our country, our world. If we all rest who is going to do the work? Who’s going to keep our children free? Isn’t it time we fight for our children instead of sending our children to fight for us?
All we have to do is learn how The Lord our God does it. He fights for His children. He fights with His fingers. Jesus says He told us all things, so we just have to go learn how to fight to win.
I want to give God’s ways a go. I hope you will join me in the fight. Put on the Commandments and let our Lord see us through the coming days. Maybe our children will have hope again. Maybe we might even find God’s providence in our endeavors. We must begin to search the answers to our questions. Let the written Word be our guide, the measure by which we walk, and fight.
Do all things in Him.
May The Word go with us all
