Bigger Than His Book

8 Jul

It’s the lack of power encounters that lead to a misunderstanding of God and His Word. Experience is necessary in building a true knowledge of His Word…

God does as He pleases. While true to His Word, He does not avoid acting outside of our understanding of it. For example, He’s a loving God who hates Esau… He’s the bright morning star who veils Himself in darkness. He hates divorce, yet is Himself divorced (Jer. 3:8). This list of seemingly conflicting ideas could go on for much longer than any of us could bear. Yet this uncomfortable tension is designed to keep us honest and truly dependent on the Holy Spirit for an understanding of who God is and what He is saying to us through His book…

The Bible is the absolute Word of God… Yet it does not contain Him. God is bigger than His book.

    Jesus is the Word, the Word IS God mr. Johnson. God is His book. I’m afraid you have a deficient view of your creator. I’m also sorry to inform you that for this reason, you have opened yourself to false manifestations.

    Jn 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
