The power of the written word
The inspired word of God is a spiritual material of creation from which every realm of existence came to be. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.” In the beginning, when all things received their being, the Word was, and did actually subsist. The word of God was a Spirit before the Spiritual Father, the Almighty God Himself, spoke it and then it manifested to become realms of existence and thus man and all other creations were created.
In the beginning, everything was inside one man — our God. God was the only thing in existence. He holds all creation together and it is through Him that any other thing came to be. Rom 11:36 says, “For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.” God is a Spirit Being, which means that everything physical was in the beginning in a spiritual form inside the Spiritual Being – God and as this Almighty Being made a declaration through spoken words, His spiritual verbal command manifested to become a physical reality.
Man, therefore, is a product of the Word of God. If I am born by the Word, I am nothing but the word. And if I am a product created by the Word, I am by every ramification the WORD.
It also means that I am enriched with creative powers and can, therefore, speak a word like my Father, the God Almighty and the word declared can be manifested into a physical reality because our essential characters are identical.
Many people are ignorant of the power of the spoken word and as a result suffer proportionately the effect of an unrighteous verbal attack of the enemy. Thus the elementals created by the word of their enemies haunt them and oppose every aspect of their lives.
We must understand the danger of evil spoken word so that we could overcome the dart and weapon of our enemy. Many people are suffering from ailments caused by spoken evil words. But God has made provision through the words written in the Holy Bible to counter the evil words of the enemies.
There are written words for every situation in life, whether it is a situation of need, danger, affliction, etc. The written word dethrones your enemy. It takes you from poverty to riches. It defines your destiny and turns your sorrow to joy. It can take you from zero level to the zenith. There are more than 8,000 of these words in the Bible, which when proclaimed bring succour, healing, promotion, comfort or mercy. Unfortunately, however, the children of God are daily threatened and are wallowing in abject poverty, bitterness, suffering from the affliction of both curable and incurable diseases, dying prematurely, being displaced and cheated daily, while the children of the devil are capitalising on their ignorance to usurp wealth, gain earthly advantage and position themselves unduly against the children of God.
Our Master Jesus Christ quoted the written word and the devil that came to tempt Him scampered. When devil came to tempt Jesus, our Lord kept telling him it is written, it is written, because the written words cannot be altered. The written words are established statutory spiritual constitution that must be obeyed. Whenever it is spoken, it must surely come to fulfilment. We do not need to render any assistance before it accomplishes its purposes.
It is like the law of gravity that says what goes up must come down. It’s coming down has nothing to do with our assistance, whether we agree or not, what goes up must come down, that is an earthly established order.
