The Spoken Word

Genesis 1:3

“A number of materialistic thinkers have ascribed to blind evolution more miracles, more improbable coincidences and wonders, than all the teleologists could ever devise.” Isaac Bashevis Singer

“God said” is repeated times in Genesis chapter 1.

Speaking is at the foundation of divine revelation.

We cannot know what we do not know, God must reveal this to us, and He does it by speaking!

“God said”

“Thus says the Lord”

“the Word of the Lord”

God always tells us what He wants us to know!

The Bible is the written Word of God – it is our source of divine revelation, wisdom and knowledge.

Hebrews 1:1-3a

John 1:1-5

An attack on the written Word of God is an attack on the living Word of God – an attack on the living Word of God is an attack on the written Word of God!

Let us return to – God – Jesus said

You did not choose me, I chose you

Follow me

Deny yourself

You are the light of the world

  • God is my creator
  • God created me in His image
  • God created me with a purpose
  • Therefore, I have Eternal value and worth

The account of the creation, its commencement, progress, and completion, bears the marks, both in form and substance, of a historical document in which it is intended that we should accept as actual truth, Keil and Delitzsch

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3 (ESV)

Holy Spirit, What are you saying to Me?

Holy Spirit, What do you want me to do?
