Scripture – The Greatness Of God’s Word

Being the Church of the Living God. 1 Timothy 3:15 if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth.

Intro Thoughts

First Things First…Laying a foundation for the Greatness of God’s Word

God Has Faithfully Spoken to His People

God spoke through decrees

A decree of God is a word of God that causes something to happen

God spoke through the prophets

God spoke to man through the prophets.  To disbelieve or disobey any of the words of the prophets was to disbelieve and disobey God.  Anyone who claimed to be speaking for Him, but was not was severely punished. (Ezek. 13:1-7, Deut. 10:20-22.)

Deut. 18:18-20 – “I will put my words in his mouth….”

Jer. 1:9 – “I have put my word in your mouth.”

God spoke through Jesus Christ

John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (ESV)

John 1:14 – And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (ESV)

Rev. 19:13 – [11] Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. [12] His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. [13] He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. (ESV)


In Christ we have seen THE GLORY OF GOD


There is a progressive nature of how God has spoken in redemptive history

  1. Decrees
  2. Prophets
  3. Jesus
  4. The Bible

God’s Written Word

In the New Testament Jesus promises that the Holy Spirit would bring to their remembrance the words which, He had spoken.
