Welcome to Word of Life Study Series- Faith that moves mountains! Faith is the key that unlocks God’s power that is stored in His Word. It releases the treasures of God’s wisdom, and ability to move any mountain, meet any need, and defeat any demon. Until faith is introduced, and mixed with the Word of God, it remains dormant. When the believer applies these principles of the law of faith to the Bible, heaven comes to earth!
1. The Sword of the Spirit
Our primary spiritual offensive weapon is the Word of God. It is the key to winning successfully. Our objective is to get the Word of God in our heart, and out of our mouth. Waving the Bible in the air is not wielding the sword of our spirit. Only when we speak that Word out of our mouth in faith, does it become the ultimate weapon in the universe.
2. God’s Word is a Fire
Fire in the Bible is referred to as an act of judgment and purification. Just think of it, as the Word of God is being spoken, the fire of God consumes the enemies of God, and purges our life.
3. God’s Word is like a Hammer
When it comes to cracking some hard nuts, God’s Word is more than able to do the job.
4. The Water of God’s Word
The key to sanctification is God’s Word. Water is a type of the Word, because it purifies, refreshes, and sustains life.
5. The Rod of God’s Word
God uses His Word to correct His children, not trials, tests, and temptations. Some people have the notion that God, and the devil work together to perfect the believer through crisis and tragedy. Good God, bad devil! Simple theology, but if we get them confused, we will find ourselves in a heap of trouble.
6. God’s Word is Medicine
I believe that doctors, hospitals, and medicine are a tremendous help to suffering humanity. I believe in these natural means to receive help for my physical body, but I trust in God most of all. Thank God for His healing Word, it is medicine to all our flesh!
7. God’s Word is Incorruptible Seed
Just as the potential for life is within a natural seed, so the Word of God is waiting to germinate, and produce life in the heart of the believer.
8. The Bread of Life
As natural food is to our body, so the Word of God is to our spirit. A minister once said, “People wonder why they don’t have any faith to receive from God. They feed their body three hot meals a day, but their spirit one cold snack a week.” God’s Word is our primary source of spiritual nourishment. The Word of God is our bread of life.
9. God’s Word is Spiritual Light
Just as natural light reveals this natural world, so the Word of God reveals the Kingdom of God to us. We can walk with God and not stumble around in ignorance. The measure of God’s Word that we are walking in and living in from day to day, is the measure of spiritual light we are currently walking in.
10. A Spiritual Mirror
This true image of who we are in Christ Jesus can only be seen through the eyes of God’s Word. This is the way God sees us and reveals our true standing and position before Him through Jesus.
11. A Solid Rock on which to Stand
All decisions and behavior are based on some kind of belief system. Unless our cornerstone is Jesus, life will be off base. God’s Word is our final authority for all matters that pertain to life and conduct. The Bible is the rock on which we build our lives.Support the show
