“For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword…” (V12)
The word of God is not like any other word. It has in it the life-giving ability of God. It has the unfailing irresistible power of God. It embodies the wisdom of God. No wonder the Book of Jn1:1 tells us “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word with the capital W refers to the 2nd person of the Trinity, the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Jn 1:2 -5) says “The same was in the beginning with God All things were made by Him…” In Jn1:14 we are told. “ And the Word was made flesh…” In Jn1:18 we also learn “No man hath seen God at any time… Thus we see that Jesus Christ was pre- existed and self-existent; in other words, He was there before creation and he was not a created being. Indeed, God created all things through the hand of Jesus Christ. God came into the world in the form of man in the person of Jesus Christ. It is only this same Jesus Christ who had ever seen God and it is He that truly reveals God to man as God really is. The shroud of mystery surrounding God has been demystified by Jesus who is both the Messenger and the Message. In the Book of Genesis 1:3,1:6,1:9,1:11,1:14,1:20,1:24, we observe that God proceeded every act of creation by speaking forth his word “And God said” every time (Tunde-Cole Onitiri)
