    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. THE WORD IS GOD. Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. The Word is ALIVE. think GOD
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    God and his word is ALWAYS two separate things. Numbers 11:23] And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD's hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not. Psalm 107:20] He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Proverbs 2:[1] My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;"  
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    John 1:1 is where preachers and congregations get bewitched and stumble over. John 1:1-2 is telling us "The Word was God's Word" and NOT God was the word. The word ((was)) is past tense and ((and)) a conjunction joining three separate thoughts into a sentence. God and his word are two separate things always. God made the world by speaking words and NOT with two hands like you and I have.
