The single MOST IMPORTANT thing to the Follower of Christ. Why?
Hebrews 4:12 The Word of God is LIVING and ACTIVE and SHARPER than ANY two-edged sword, piercing as far as the division of SOUL and SPIRIT, of both JOINTS and MARROW, and able to JUDGE THE THOUGHTS and INTENTIONS of the HEART.
Jesus IS THE WORD!!! John 1:1
- The Word is ALIVE when you SPEAK IT, angels harken to perform it. Psalm 103:20
- God Watches OVER His Word to perform it. Isaiah 55:11
- It KEEPS you from sinning! Psalm 119:11
- It cleans your mind by washing it so that you’re sanctified. Eph. 5:26
The day is coming when the written Word will be removed. Amos 8:11
When THE WORD is removed the anti-christ will be revealed. 2 Thess. 2:7
Get into the Word! Trust the Word and NOT yourself. “But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew ALL men, and because He did not need anyone to testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man.” John 2:24-25
Jesus made this statement; Luke 18:7-8 NOW, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? V.8 I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, WILL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?”
How does FAITH COME? By hearing and hearing and hearing the Word of Christ everyday. NOT HAVING HEARD!!!
Read it, Speak it, LIVE IT!!!! The time is coming quickly when people will NOT ENDURE SOUND DOCTRINE and will want to have their ears tickled with preachers who will ONLY PREACH what is convenient and easy on their ears. Beware of this kind of teaching! IF THE TEACHING of Christ does NOT convict you and CHALLENGE you then IT’S NOT THE GOSPEL of Christ! It’s time for the Body of Christ to grow to FULL MATURITY!
