Genesis Chapter 1: God – The “Who” of Creation -God and His Word Part 1

God and His Word

 Proverbs 6:20-23

What do you think about when you hear the words “Word of God” or “Bible”. Do you think about it like a collector’s item – that big book that your mother or aunt keeps special things in. Do you think of that book as a coffee table item – that book you take to church but it stays on a table in the living room until the next church service. Do you think about it like a companion – a book that you can’t make it one day without looking to for help, guidance, or reassurance.









This book is just a book. It contains the books of the authors who were lead by God to write them, yet it is still a book. You can be unsaved or saved and still read it. You can even be unsaved and understand parts of it but we must have the Spirit of God in our lives to truly understand this book.

To truly understand the spiritual context one must have the Spirit of the author.

This book, the Bible, is the only inspired Word of God. There are many imitators and even watered down versions



1) The Bible is God’s inspired Word

The authors of the books of the Bible wrote each individual word through the inspiration and revelation of God. They still kept their own opinions. They retained their personalities when they wrote each book yet they were writing by direct revelation from God.

2) The Bible is God’s empowering Word

God’s Word and His Spirit are both essential for our salvation. The Word of God without the Spirit of God is lifeless – with no power but the Word of God empowered by the Spirit of God is a living force in our lives 2Timothy 3:10-15

3) The Bible is God’s transforming Word

The word of God is a powerful and living force (through the Spirit) that penetrates the very heart and mind. It gives us a look at God’s plan and His will for us. Every believer who abides in His word can’t help but be changed

Hebrews 4:12-13

John 1:20-21, 26-27

4) The Bible is God’s enduring Word

The things of this earth are merely temporary except two things: Our souls and God’s Word, which makes His Word and the state of every man’s soul very important. Both lead to Jesus

1Peter 1:22-25, 2:1-3

2Peter 3:1-9

5) The Bible is God’s prophetic Word

We should diligently study His Word because it is God speaking to us God alone is responsible for each word in the bible. All scripture comes directly from God and never a private source or the one who interprets His Word

2Peter 1:16-21

6) The Bible is God’s simplistic Word

Jesus came and dies for our sins. All He wants us to do is accept Him as our savior.

2Corinthians 11:1-3

God wants everyone on this earth to be saved but it is our choice

2Peter 3:1-6

There is no mystery in the God’s Word that is hidden from us (His children)

Deuteronomy 6:1-9

1) The mystery revealed to His saints

Colossians 1:24-29

2) The mystery hidden in the Father and Son

We (the saved) have the mind of Christ

1Corithians 2:6-16

 We (the saved) have been born of God

1John 5:18-20
