God’s word is powerful because it comes from God and not from man. It is a living word.
The Holy Spirit uses the word of God to convict the world of sin. This means that people will be individually accountable to God and be convicted, making them uncomfortable. So is going to the doctor and getting a shot or setting a broken bone, but we do it when necessary, or we will suffer a much worse fate if we refuse to address the problem.
If the Word is so Powerful, Then why Are More People not Reading It?
So profound is this conviction that men have fabricated massive coordinated deceptions to remove true faith from public life. Evolution is one that began for that very reason. And, even though science continues to prove evolution dead wrong and inaccurate, the majority of scientists and educational institutions will never admit their errors and the truth that is in plain sight.
Creation has nothing to do with science, as God spoke this world into existence and created all that we see and know. And how did God do this? By the Word of His mouth.” Only God was there, so how can science prove or disprove the account of creation? The world, in general, had accepted this account in scripture for thousands of years. Until Darwin came along and tried to say science could answer the issue of creation apart from God. Science did not prove the creation account one way or the other, but it did bring doubt and confusion into the modern world.
It allowed those who did not want to believe God and thus accept that God is the lawgiver and judge man a new way to explain life. Along with Marxism, Satan had his new religion that opposed God and deceived people throughout the world. Karl Marx used Darwin’s theory as the perfect complement to his demonic theory of hate, which would eventually spark revolutions leaving 100 million people dead over the last century. you
It Requires More Faith to Believe the Lies
It takes a great deal of faith to believe many absurd assumptions passed off as settled science taught in schools. Yet, accepted by the government, the media, and the left, evolution has been shoved down our throats as fact. A lie is a lie, no matter how you mask or disguise it. The results of lies are permanently damaging to someone. Remember that liars will be found out because all hidden things will be made known by God.
The world population has been drawn away from a God who convicts yet saves to a false god who says anything you want is acceptable, but you remain lost and cut off from God.
Satan is most successful when he manages to convince people the word of God has errors.
That way, it is quickly dismissed by people who do not want to take the time to read it anyway. And now they have a short answer to quote why they do not believe anytime someone asks them. If you struggle with this, a good article goes into great detail and answers the accusations of errors in scripture and the truth.
What Makes the word of God So Powerful?
12“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”
The Word of God (bible) is From God, Not Man.
16“All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16
The Word of God Convicts
The bible is not just a book but the historical documents preserved which claim not to be from a man but God. And God is active when His word is read or preached. His spirit works in the hearts of those who hear it.
He convicts the world of sin and the need for a Savior. His word instructs us, reproves us, and shines the light of truth so that we can discern.
Reveals Who We Are
When we read the bible, it is like looking in a mirror because God reveals who we are. (James 1:23-25)
22“But be doers of the word and bot hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
Keeps us From Sin
11“I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.”
If we wait for the temptation to come thinking we can handle it, we will fall.
We are to:
16“let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.”
That does not occur unless we take the time to read it.
Leads us To Christ And Salvation
17“Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.”
21“Therefore, put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which can save your souls.”
His Word is True And Eternal
17“Your word is truth.”
35“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.”
What makes The word of God so powerful and different than any other book is the changed hearts of those who read and study it. The most significant evidence of the power of God’s word is the lives that it changes. Easy for someone to claim this or that. The proof is in the pudding, as they say. I will stop here even though there is so much more. I want to keep these short so that you can squeeze in the time to keep coming and keep learning about the Lord.
