The WORD, John says in his account of the Good News, is God Himself.
He says further that the WORD became "flesh" ...or "human" ...fully
human, that is!
This is amazing! As you read on through the rest of his accounts of
many, many things that this Jesus said and did -you find that Jesus
Himself claimed that it was His Heavenly Father
Who was the origin
all His words
and all His works!
Jesus also declared that all who would believe in Him ...though they
should die, yet would they live!
Many don't want to think: "what significance is there after I die?" Many
don't want to think "what significance is there, even while I live?"
Whether we like to think of it or not, Jesus Christ brought amazing,
life changing significance to the lives
as well as to the thinking
who constantly surrounded Him in His years of earthly ministry, and He
is still in that "business" today! It's so vital to pay attention to what is
truly of eternal significance to our daily living!
Before Christ Jesus was born as a human on earth through the virgin
Mary, He was always the "God of the LIVING
" ...not just of Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob but of millions of others too who believed in and
surrendered to Him!
In John chapter 11, Jesus also told Mary and Martha whom He knew so
well, that He Himself
was the "Resurrection and the Life" ...not just an
experience of "after death" but a contemporary experience of daily
living on earth.
- For all who would believe in Him, He became Life, ETERNAL
LIFE ...not just for "one day" but for now, "every day"!
What difference would it make in your life if He, the God of the
LIVING would live out His Life both IN you and THROUGH you?
I personally often talk to Him about this ...that His resurrection Life
would be that which is both heard and seen
Let me share a few reflections on this ...about the Word Himself ...since
He does STILL Speak!
In Acts 3:13 Paul the Apostle says: "The God of Abraham, Isaac, and
... has glorified His servant Jesus, (raised Him from the
dead ...the One) Whom you delivered up, and disowned in the presence
of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him."
In Acts 7:32 Paul again quotes Jesus to say "I am the God of ... Abraham
and Isaac and Jacob ..." for He was not the God of the dead but God of
This same Lord Jesus Christ will make His glory to shine through your
daily living whether in the home, another work place or on the streets or
in the church body as He lives in you ...if you are related to Him and
belong to Him through His indwelling Holy Spirit!
is not of his resurrection
but of our "believing
Him ...and obedient faith
He proved Himself as the God of Promise
; the God of Provision
the God of incredible Patience
throughout the Bible... from Genesis
You should read the book of Genesis and see Him:
- the God of Abraham
, as the God of Promise
- then the God of Isaac
, as the God of Provision
- then the God of Jacob
, as the God of amazing Patience!
This same God is the Word made flesh, born as a human and now
resurrected from the dead and not only ascended ...but living in you and
me... if we have received Him into our lives.
This same One will
-fulfill His promises
- never fail on His provision
- and continue to uphold and sustain you with His amazing
...yes during times of weakness or strength; in sickness or
health; in youth or old age;
in times of happiness
as well as
in those dark times
when you can hardly wait for the morning!
Believing in Jesus Christ's resurrection Life ...that He is the God of the
Living ...not of the Dead...
will allow Him once again to demonstrate His
(not merely by an empty tomb
from 2,000 years ago)
but now in every day reality ...His Deity
in terms of your humanity!
Will you believe with me, in Him Who will not fail in anything that He is?
He cannot fail. Listen
to Him! Believe
Him while implicitly relying
THE WORD STILL SPEAKS!

I'll be glad to answer you. Thank you. Keep on Believing.
