QUESTION: "Is it correct to say The WORD of God is the revelation of God Himself? "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1:1 NIV)??? Considering that God spoke creation into being with His WORD. Knowing the scriptures is one thing (a good thing, which we all need). But I think knowing the Word of God comes by revelation, God revealing Himself to us. Could we then say that being intimate with the Word of God is actually being intimate with the Spirit of God Himself?"

ANSWER: "God and his Word are ONE. The WORD is a spiritual reality. (Another word for reality is TRUTH)In fact it is not 'a' spiritual reality, it is THE spiritual Reality!Every other sense of reality is falsehood and a lie Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Intimacy with the WORD = intimacy with Christ = intimacy with God. The WORD = the Spiritual reality, nature, essence and life force of God. we make the word intimate by learning ABOUT the WORD from scripture, we then mix the pictures/ image we get from the Scripture with faith, then it becomes spiritual substance within our spirits and begins to grow! 1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the WORD, that ye may grow thereby: 2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. In summary What we SEE in the Word, we DO, what we DO of the WORD we BECOME! We interact with the word by learning, believing, practicing what God has revealed Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. So the real measure of the TRUTH you Know, is the WORD that you have experienced through practice 1 John 1:1-2 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) so the Spirit, the word and God are one!"
