DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE WORD OF GOD



Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.

This was in response to Satan’s taunting Jesus saying “If you are the son of GOD then turn these stones into bread.” When Jesus said “Man shall not live by bread alone” he was quoting from Deuteronomy 8:3.

Jesus as a boy, instead of joining the homeward bound caravan, stayed at the temple and was having a question and answer time with the teachers of the Old Testament

Luke 2:47 And all who heard Him were amazed at His understanding and His answers.

What we can take from this is; Jesus knew the word of GOD and when it came time for the temptation of Satan he was prepared, and just quoted the Word Of GOD to him.

Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

The word of GOD has power within it and when it meets faith it will accomplish what it was sent forth to do.

There were two men that were broke and hungry, one of which knew something of the Bible though he was not a Christian. He convinced the other one to go down to a busy corner, and he started to give forth the words of the Bible. He carried the pretence further and gave an altar call like he had seen preachers do. There were some people who stepped forward and were saved that evening. The two men had passed a hat around and collected some money and off they went on their way laughing about how they had pulled it off.

The fact was that God’s Word went forth regardless and it did not return void!

Perhaps this explains how unfaithful ministers seemingly get results even though they are not walking the way they should. It is the Word that when sent forth does not return to GOD without results.

Jesus knew the written Word and could without any hesitation declared “It is written” and he knew the power that resided within it. It is a must for every Christian to know for themselves the written word so in every situation they can say with Jesus; “It is written."

Psalms 119:11 I have stored up your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
