*THE WORD

*It has Chinese version in the back.

Jhn 1:1,In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Word in Greek is logos which means the sayings of God, the divine reason or expression, the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, the personal wisdom and power in union with God; the person of Jesus the Messiah, the second person in the Godhead; - it occurs about 330 times in the New Testament. Word in Hebrew is dabar which means speech, saying, utterance, oracle; - it occurs 1,439 times in the Old Testament.
There are four types of book. Books that indulge you are bad; books that inform you are useful; books that instruct you are good; and books that inspire you are great. All good books and great books are human. If I read a great book several times, it begins to tire me. The Bible is divine, the greatest of all books. I have studied the Bible more than 100 times and still it does not make me tired or weary. Every time I read the Bible over again, I receive new revelation and inspiration. The Bible has the most instructive history, the most fascinating biography, the sweetest poetry, the most inspiring message, the most comfortable counsel, the most soul-searching prayer, the greatest sermon, the purest wisdom, the truest knowledge, and the powerful Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Book of all books is God’s Word, the Eternal Word of God. You can find out for yourself.

Christianity is neither superstition nor science. Superstition is based on false and unfounded beliefs and fears. Science is limited by human and empirical and tentative knowledge at a time and place. Christianity is the revealed religion. Only God makes revelation of the ultimate truth and wisdom. Revelation cannot be achieved by human discovery or wisdom. Christianity is the revelation of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was God who became Man to reveal God and spiritual things to human beings. 

1. The Church of Jesus Christ is the pillar of truth.

2. The Roman Catholic Church is historically false, full of heresies and wrong doctrines and superstitions.

3. Science cannot provide ultimate truth and wisdom because science at best is human tentative knowledge at a given time and place.

4. Human philosophies cannot provide ultimate truth and wisdom because they are limited human thoughts confined to limited intelligence.

5. All religions except Christianity are man-made.

6. Christianity – the revealed religion – explains and exalts the Supreme Being, Wisdom and Truth.

7. Neither science nor religion can save mankind.

8. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life – outside of Christ there is no salvation.

9. The wisdom of the living is to know the Most High rules the universe and over the realm of mankind.

10. It is of infinite truth and wisdom that human beings must submit themselves humbly to the Will of God.

1 The Word of God

Rev 19:13, He (Christ) was clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of God. 

Christ is the Word of God. The Word of God is expressed in spoken word, written word and living word.

Luk 8:11, Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.

Cf. Luk 5:1, Act 17:13, Act 18:11, Act 19:20, Eph 6:17, 1 Ti 4:5, 2 Ti 2:9.

Heaven and earth will pass away, the Word of God will never pass away.

2.   The Word of the Lord

Gen 15:1, After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying: Do not fear, Abram. I am your shield, and your exceedingly great reward.

Cf. Num 15:31, Num 22:18, Deu 18:21, Psa 18:30, Psa 33:4,6; Luk 22:61, Act 15:35.

The word of the Lord is the Word of God. 

3.   The Word of Christ

Col 3:16, Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Note: There are not all psalms like the Psalms in the Bible. Many modern songs used in some churches and denominations are not really hymns of praise or spiritual songs because they are inspired by the Hollywood culture.

Rom 10:17, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.”

The Word of Christ is written in the New Testament, mostly in the four Gospels.

4.  The Word of Jesus

Mat 26:75, Then Peter remembered the word of Jesus who said to him: Before the cock crows, you will deny Me thrice. He went out and wept bitterly.

The Word of Jesus is the word of God. When Jesus speaks, God speaks. Jesus speaks to reveal God.

5.  The Word of truth

2 Ti 2:15, Endeavor to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Note: All heresies and false doctrines are not rightly dividing the Word of truth. The misinterpret or distort the Word of God. The Bible is the Word of truth.

Cf. Jam 1:18, Psa 119:43, Eph 1:13, 2 Cr 6:7.

The Word of God is the Word of truth, the absolute truth, the infallible truth.

6.  The Word of life

1 Jo 1:1,  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have touched, concerning the Word of life.

Phl 2:16Holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice on the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

The Word of Christ is the Word of life.

7.  The Word of the Holy One of Israel

Isa 5:24Therefore as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root will be rotten, and their blossom will go up like dust; because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

The God of the Bible is the Holy One of Israel.

8.  The Word of the Kingdom

Mat 13:19, When anyone hears the Word of the Kingdom and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the way side.

The Word of God is not concerned about this world, it is about the Kingdom of God. This is the fatal mistake of prosperity gospel that stresses the material and earthly blessings above the spiritual. Or the preachers of prosperity gospel and they followers want the best of two worlds. You cannot serve God and money.

9.  The Word of the Gospel

Act 15:7, When after much dispute, Peter stood up and said to them, Men and brethren, you know that a good while ago God chose among us, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the Gospel and believe.

In the early Church there was a great debate at Antioch as to what Gentile (non-Jewish) Christians should do because some false teachers came down from Judea and taught Gentile Christians must be circumcised according to the custom of Moses or they would not be saved. Paul and Barnabas went up to Jerusalem to the apostles and elders concerning this issue. A sect of the Pharisees said it was necessary to circumcise them and to direct them to observe the Law of Moses. The apostles and the elders came together to look into this matter. The first council in Jerusalem took place to settle the matter. Peter stood up and said, 

Act 15:10-11,“Now therefore why do you put God to the test by placing upon the neck of the disciples a yoke which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are.”

Note: There is no distinction as to how a Jewish or Gentile believer is saved. We are all saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. 

Eph 2:8, “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” However, there is a distinction as to how a Jewish Christian or a Gentile Christian should conduct himself. James said, Act 15:19-20,“Therefore it is my judgment that we do not trouble those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles, but that we write to them that they abstain from things contaminated by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood.”

The apostles and the brethren who were elders sent a letter to Gentile Christians saying, 

Act 15:25-29,“It seemed good to us, having become of one mind, to select men to send to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth. For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials: that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell.” At that time, the Apostles and Elders proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ by word of mouth. The New Testament was not written yet. The Apostles made it clear Gentile Christians do not need to be circumcised or keep the Sabbath. The ceremonial Law of Moses was no longer required, but the moral law as repeated in the New Testament remains. However, the essentials for all believers whether Jewish or Gentile to observe are to abstain from:

1.    eating things sacrificed to idols and worshiping of idols

2.    eating blood

3.    eating meat of strangled animals

4.    fornication

Christians must be free from eating blood, free from eating food sacrificed to idols and worship of idols, free from eating food from strangled animals, and free from committing sexual immorality (including homosexuality and divorce). In other words, Christians are forbidden to eat blood, food sacrificed to idols or worship of idols, food from strangled animals, and fornication. Chinese Christians must pay particular attention because the Chinese custom of eating blood, worshiping ancestors and idols, and eating food sacrificed to idols. The leader of Taiwan Ma Ying-jeou has publicly committed idolatry by worshiping idols, I do not know whether he has stopped doing it or not. No one has the right to claim to be a Christian and worship idols at the same time just like no woman has the right to marry two men at the same time. Worshiping idols is a great sin against the living God. Mr. Ma Ying-jeou must come clean: if Ma Ying-jeou claims to be a Christian, he cannot worship idols. If he wants to worship idols, he cannot claim to be a Christian. That is fair. That is religious freedom. There is no hangky-pangky in being a Christian.

10.  The Word of His grace

Act 20:32, And now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Note: The Word of God is the only source which is able to build believers up. Christians can only grow by feeding on the Word of His grace, not tradition or teaching of man.

11.  The Word of promise

Rom 9:9, For this is the word of promise: At this time I will return, and Sara shall have a son.

NoteGod in ancient time promised that the Messiah shall come to save the world.

Luk 1:72-73, 78-79,  “To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy covenant, the oath which He swore to our father Abraham, Through the tender mercy of our God with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."

Jhn 1:41, “He first found his brother Simon, and said to him: We have found the Messiah (which means Christ).”

In the Old Testament God promised the Messiah, in the New Testament Jesus Christ is the Messiah. Oh, my Jewish friends how I pray the God would open your eyes and see that Jesus Christ is the Jewish Messiah.

12.  The Word of faith

Rom 10:8, But what does it say? The word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart; that is, the word of faith which we preach.

In the things of the world, we know and believe. In the things of God, we believe and know. Faith is not built on scientific inquiry or the knowledge of man. Faith takes hold on the Word of God and believes whatever God says is true.

13.  The Word of wisdom

1 Cr 12:8, For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

The wisdom of man cannot know God. You need wisdom from above to know God. Jesus Christ is the Wisdom of God, to know Christ is to know God. The Word of wisdom is to believe and know that Jesus Christ the Son of God is your Lord and Savior. The people of Washington, Wall Street and Hollywood do not have the Word of wisdom.

14.  The Word of knowledge

1 Cr 12:8, For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

The Word of knowledge is not human knowledge. Human knowledge is fallible, Divine knowledge is infallible.

15. The Word of reconciliation

2 Cr 5:19, To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them; and has committed to us the Word of reconciliation.

Sinners are enemies of God. Jesus Christ died for sinners to appease God so that sinners can be reconciled to God by the redemption of Jesus Christ.

16.   The Word of the truth of the Gospel

Col 1:5, For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the Gospel;

The word of the truth of the Gospel is that all have sinned and all will die, for the wages of sin is death. But all who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will receive the eternal life.  Oh, the poor, the oppressed, the homeless people of the world, there is good news for you, not only Jesus Christ can save your souls from eternal damnation, He has prepared the Paradise of God for you, mansions in Heaven.

17.  The Word of His power

Hbr 1:3, Who being the brightness of His (Gods) glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He (Christ) had by Himself cleansed our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high;

There is power in the Gospel which can save all who come to Jesus Christ.

18.  The Word of righteousness

Hbr 5:13, For every one who lives on milk is a babe, unskilled in the Word of Righteousness.

There is no righteousness in man. Through Jesus Christ believers obtain the righteousness of God. 

19.  The Word of Prophecy

2 Pe 1:19, We also have a more sure Word of prophecy; which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

Note: Christ is the Word of God. Without the Word of God, there is no truth, no way, and no life. The Bible is the Written Word of God. Christianity is based on the authority of  the written Word of God, not man or institution. Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God, the central message of God to mankind. To believe in Jesus Christ is to believe in God. To believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior is to be saved. Would you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now?
