Scripture points on the appearance and manifesting of divinity through word and deed are shared, today.  To me as a Christian writer who has sought to honor GOD with books on the sacred meanings of marriage, human sexuality, and the crown of life, the substance of salvation is conveyed by words that establish divine intent and eternal purpose.  While some are unbalanced in their commitment, sacred knowledge and service, all born again Christian believers are in an ongoing process where permanent changes in their nature and character are being made through both the divine word and the imparted Spirit, the Holy Ghost.  The writer at “Yahoo!

Why do Christians pay more attention to what God says than what God does?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant:  but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.  11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?  12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.  13 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom thou wilt send.  14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee:  and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.  15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth:  and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.  16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people:  and he shall be, even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead of God.  (Exodus 4:  10-16, KJV)

“Dangerous Mr.”, while it’s true that, for created beings and living creatures, “active presence” is called “existence” and “life”, the processes of divinity for continuing in relationship with mankind upon the earth have always centered in utterance.  Included are commandment, doctrine (we say, formal teachings), guidance, instruction, divine law, praise, proclamation, promise, prophecy and revelation.  For many, grace, sacred knowledge, and utterance pertain to spirit, while actions pertain to flesh, things carnal and material. The very existence of the earth and most of its living creatures have been through operations of divine word that, within the frameworks of time and space, may be directed without boundaries and limits.  Expectation and fulfillment are necessary aspects for exchange, interaction and realization, making what is invisible known, memorable, and tangible.  This is important, for GOD is a spirit who must be acknowledged and worshiped in spirit and in truth.  The existence of mankind is by word (we also say, breath, essence, and spirit).  Most Christian believers will agree that words whisper and actions SHOUT.  Yet, the reconfiguration and transformation of mankind to permanently display the divine nature as immortal and incorruptible begins at the word of GOD in baptism, and is completed in the coming of Jesus to harvest believers from the earth.  Please consider the following from Scripture:

(1.)  John 1:  1-5, King James Version (KJV):  1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2 The same was in the beginning with God.  3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

(2.)  Genesis 1:  24-28, KJV:  24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind:  and it was so.  25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind:  and God saw that it was good.  26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:  and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:  and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

(3.)  Isaiah 55:  8-12, KJV:  8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.  10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:  11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:  it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace:  the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

(4.)  1st Kings 19:  9-12, KJV:  9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?  10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts:  for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.  11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind:  and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:  12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire:  and after the fire a still small voice

(5.)  Acts 4:  27-31, KJV:  27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,  28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.  29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings:  and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,  30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.  31 And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

(6.)  Acts 2:  1-4, KJV:  1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.  2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.  3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.  4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

There is far more that could be said, and that must be correctly understood and spiritually taken into account.  (For example (7.)  Colossians 1:  12-20, KJV:  12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:  13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:  all things were created by him, and for him:  17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  18 And he is the head of the body, the church:  who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;  20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
