Practical Application of the Word of God

Practising the Word of God is possible, but you must understand the text and the Bible to apply it to your life. First, you must locate and study the relevant scriptures and understand them completely. Then, you may seek help from your Pastor or a mature Christian to apply the Word in your life. This article will provide some basic steps for the practical application of the Word of God. Let’s get started.

 

Bible

The Bible is the Word of God because the Creator and the Father are present in it. He speaks to human beings through Jesus Christ, the Scriptures’ author. God inspired all of them, and the Holy Spirit influenced human authors. The Bible teaches us to till the land, cultivate it, subdue it, control it, guard and care for it. This is the same teaching that Jesus taught us.

 

Jesus Christ

The title “Jesus Christ is the Word of God” is somewhat ambiguous. The name may refer to the personification of God’s written or spoken Word. The Old Testament records that God revealed his testimony to His people through the prophets. But with Christ’s birth, that testimony became human and fleshly. That is the meaning behind the title “Jesus Christ is the Word of God.”

 

YHWH

In the Hebrew Bible, God is known by only one personal name, YHWH. The four-letter word is incomprehensible to the modern ear and was pronounced differently in antiquity. The Word YHWH is pronounced as “adonai,” the name of the Creator God. The name was never meant to be more than a substitute word. Nevertheless, it is often pronounced as such.

 

YHWH pronounced Yahweh

The name of God is pronounced YHWH. The letters are pronounced as they are written. The first syllable, “Ye-Ho-WaH”, is not pronounced as hard as in “hear ye.” It is pronounced softly, like the word “yes.” Similarly, the name of God is also found in the names of Jesus, Muhammad, and the Creator of the universe.

 

Inspired scribes

It’s difficult to be impartial, and human beings have fallen short of this standard. Inspired Bible writers rose above their frailty to a level of precision that’s impossible for human beings to attain. This means that only those under full divine inspiration can write authoritative accounts of the Scriptures that are both accurate and unbiased. Inspired scribes are the only ones qualified to verify the truth of the Scriptures.

 

Divine speech

In Hebrew scripture, God spoke before Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. The Creation Story of Genesis attributes creation to God’s speech. The Word of God, or the divine speech, was understood as powerful and effective in sustaining creation and bringing about divine purposes. This understanding of God’s voice was not limited to Israel; it was prevalent throughout the ancient Near East. In addition to biblical texts, ancient Near Eastern cultures attributed various powers and abilities to the voice of God.

 

SPIRIT OF TRUTH

The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of Truth. He is the one who reveals the truth about God and man. In His Word, He never contradicts what God has revealed about Himself. As a result, the Spirit of Truth confirms God’s authority as the supreme Creator. His work is called special revelation. In this way, He proves that God is true and cannot lie.

 

The Word of God

 

The Word of God is God’s revelation to us in human form, and man was His chosen spokesmen. Humans communicated with God this way, but such communications were rare and far from the norm. Moreover, God used the word “word” for only two of the three members of the Trinity: the Son and the Holy Spirit. The only members of the Trinity who communicated directly with human beings are Jesus Christ and God the Son.

 

As the living Word, the Word of God produces life and reproduces itself. The Word of God creates the seed that cannot be corrupted or rotted. It will be begotten again. This way, it will be an eternal source of information. This is a powerful image to live by, and we should all try to emulate it. The Bible teaches us that we are to be followers of Christ and that we should do the same.

 

Hebrews 4:12 describes Jesus as the “word of God.” It is important to note that the Bible was not used as the “word of God” until the New Testament. The Bible was not translated into Hebrews, but it still contains a lot of Jewish speculations on the identity of the “word of God.” The Bible also mentions that the word “word” is sometimes translated as a hypostatic manifestation of God or the title of the Divine Angel of the Lord.
