February 9, 2020 The Word and the Power of the Spirit (Luke 1:31-38)
is the Father.
sent the Word to the world (1 Jn 1:1)
and sent the Holy Spirit (Jn 20:22).
This was to fulfill God’s will (Jn 6:38-40).
God’s will was decided from eternity past (Jn 1:1).
He received this will as command and came to the world (Jn 10:18).
The Word came by the Spirit’s power (Lk 1:35).
Like firewood and fire harmonizing to be lit,
even if you stack God’s word like much firewood,
if the Holy Spirit does not work by power like a fire (Mt 12:28),
God’s will is not fulfilled.
Some people misunderstand the Law for God’s word.
The Law is the spirit of bondage (Rom 8:15).
God is the Word (Jn 1:1).
The Law is not the Creator.
Only God’s word can create (Heb 11:3).
Jesus is the Word who became flesh and came (Jn 1:14).
If the Holy Spirit comes upon Him, nothing is impossible.
That is why the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth.
○ We pray a lot
for fullness to work by the Holy Spirit.
You must have God’s word to show His power.
○ Though you read a lot of God’s word,
if the Holy Spirit does not work, you are powerless
and God’s will cannot be fulfilled.
○ If you have ears to hear God’s word
and a humble spirit by the Holy Spirit and obey,
you can see great power done by God.
※ Our Lord and Savior Jesus came to the world
because the Word came
and the Holy Spirit overshadowed Him.
