The Power behind the Word

We have often talked about the power of the Word. Let us dig deeper into that power.

In the beginning, created God…how? We know.

Gen. 1:3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

1John 1:5 ¶ This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.

Illuminates both physically and, more importantly, spiritually. It maintains and promotes life physically and spiritually.

Is. 60:19 “No longer will you have the sun for light by day,
         Nor for brightness will the moon give you light;
         But you will have the LORD for an everlasting light,
         And your God for your glory.

Num. 11:23 The LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’S power limited? Now you shall see whether My word will come true for you or not.”

Light exerts a physical pressure on objects in its path. This is explained by the particle nature of light in which photons strike and transfer their momentum. Light pressure is equal to the power of the light beam divided by the speed of light. The effect of light pressure is negligible for everyday objects. For example, you can lift a coin with laser pointers, but it would take 1 billion of them to do it. Light pressure can cause asteroids to spin faster by working on them like wind pushing a windmill.

Zech. 4:4 ¶ I asked the angel who talked with me, “What are these, my lord?”
Zech. 4:5 ¶ He answered, “Do you not know what these are?” ¶ “No, my lord,” I replied.
Zech. 4:6 ¶ So he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit [breath, wind; by extension: spirit, mind, heart (character, nature), as the immaterial part of a person that can respond to God, the seat of life; spirit being, especially the Spirit of God],’ says the LORD Almighty.

2Cor. 6:7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and the left,

Eph. 6:14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
Eph. 6:15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Eph. 6:16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Eph. 6:17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God.

1Th. 1:5 for our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction; just as you know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake.

Heb. 1:1 ¶ In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
Heb. 1:2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
Heb. 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

“In the beginning God created…” everything according to His Nature, through the power of His Word [breath, wind; by extension: spirit, mind, heart (character, nature), as the immaterial part of a person that can respond to God, the seat of life; spirit being, especially the Spirit of God.]
