whole concept. ‘You seen Me, you seen the Father. Quit wondering about the Father. I am the whole
concept of the Father. The Father is communicated when you look at Me, and I am the Word.’
What does the Word do?
It communicates. I came to communicate God to earth. I’m a word.
If you use words, what are you trying to do?
You’re trying to communicate.
Why did God send His Word?
Because He’s trying to communicate. But He had to make it flesh so He could behold it. Okay?
Now, Jesus, He and this Book [Holy Bible] are one. Jesus went back to Heaven and sits at the right hand
of the Father, but now we have the whole concept of God, not standing in front of us in flesh, but in Word
form. This Book is the Logos of God. The Word of God - the whole concept that God wants us to know.
Just like Jesus was the Logos of God – the whole concept of God.
Jesus said, ‘My Words are Spirit and they are life.’ Jesus and this Word… they are the same. To take this
Word and ingest it is to take Jesus and ingest Him. They have the same DNA. They are made of the same
> If I study this [Holy Bible], I study Him.
> If I become more like this [the Word], I become more like Him.
> When I obey this [the Word], I obey Him.
Do you see what I’m saying?
Now, the Bible says this Logos renews my mind. I’m not to be conformed, Romans 12, to the pattern of
this world. Now listen now. This is very important:
X I’m not to think and talk like what I’m going through.
X I’m not to think and talk where I’ve been.
X I’m not to think and talk and be formed by my life experiences.
X I’m not to think and talk about everybody that betrayed me, the abuse I had,
and the habits I haven’t broken.
I cannot think and talk like that. That is to be conformed to a pattern that is in this world. And He says,
‘Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.’
This Word, this Logos, I sit down and make it a part of my daily devotion.
So I can set my mind on things above where Christ is; not on things on the earth.
