The Word brought to life

Amman Jordan ,Pastor Abu Bako

We are to speak to one another in Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, singing and making melody in your hearts on to the Lord. Col. 1:15 Let the Word of God dwell in you richly Psalm 100 Isaiah 56 Verse 7 even them will I bring to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer. For my house shall be called a house of prayer house of life givers house of breath.

Genesis 2: 4-7 What gave man life was the breath of life. The vital breath for the Christian is prayer. For every one of us a child will not be alive if it does not take the first breath. Without the oxygen the child would turn blue and die. The first breath of oxygen in Christ was that cry - Jesus come into my life. To be a life giver you need to be praying the prayers that God has given to you. Being a life giver, being an intercessor will require you knowing God. You cannot stand on behalf of others before God without knowing Him. How will you get to know Jesus? Through the Word of God John 5:39 , Psalm 119:130 The way to know Jesus is to search the Scriptures. It is not about feelings it is about the reality of the Word of God. The entrance of your Word gives light and understanding. The entrance of the Word of God will bring illumination to every heart. According to John 1:1 ff in the beginning was the Word When you want God to express himself through you must be full of the Word. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly. When you receive the Word of Christ and it is dwelling in you will receive grace upon grace. The grace of God has been given to each of us. You get the Word of God by reading the testimony of the Word of God which is the Scriptures. We are supposed to be cleansed by the washing of the water by the Word. Ephesians 5:26

Has everyone here read 100 chapters of the Word today? You need to read at least 4 chapters a day in order to read the Bible through in one year. Every thing was made by the Word of God. It is by the Word of God that every thing is being sustained. If you need direction go to the Word of God. The beginning point is that is how every thing was made. Genesis 1:1 , 3, 6, 9, 11, 14, 20, 24, 26. This shows how everything was made. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God (Hebrews 11:3). The things that are seen were not made out of things which do appear. It is by the Word of God that everything is being sustained (Hebrews 1:3). Acts 17:26 says from one blood He made all nations of men that they should inhabit the whole earth so we might look for Him and grope for Him for in Him we life and move and have our being.

John 10:35 the Word of God cannot be broken. It cannot be proved false. It cannot be changed. This book of the Law should not depart out of your mouth

There are 8 things everyone should be doing with the Word of God. 1. Read everyday you will read the Scriptures 2. Listen to the Word of God As you read listen for the voice of God Listen to the Scriptures being preached. 3. Study the Scriptures. 4. Memorize the Scriptures. 5. Confess, Proclaim and Pray the Scriptures. 6. Meditate upon the Scriptures. 7. Practice the Scriptures do the Scriptures Until you practice the Word of God you will not experience God. 8. Share the Word of God.

Now you know the 8 things you are supposed to do with the Word of God. You cannot have a ministry without the Word. Reading is reading like you read the newspaper. Every one of us should have the Bible on our cell phone. The fastest way to read the Bible is to follow in your Bible as the Bible is being read on CD You are doing two things reading and listening. You have no excuse. You can watch it on TV. You can play it back on your computer. You are to study the Scriptures there are 4 basic paths to Bible Study: (OICA) 1. O - Observation The question you ask yourself is What do I see? You approach the passage like a police officer. Every detail is important who is speaking to whom, on what occasion.

2. I - Interpretation What does it mean? What was the original intention? How did the original hearers understand it? This is where you do word study, putting the thing in context. a. General principles of Bible interpretation b. Grammatical principles of Bible Interpretation c. Historical principles of Bible interpretation d. Theological principles of Bible interpretation formation of doctrine a summary of all that the Bible has to say on a particular subject matter. If you are picking and choosing you are a heretic. 3. C Correlation how does it relate to the rest of the Bible? e.g. Psalm 92:10-12 says you shall be like a palm tree planted by the Lord and you shall be bearing fruit even in your old age. You will stay fresh and green. In order to understand what that Scripture is saying you must look at the characteristics of a palm tree. You check every thing that the Scripture has to say about palm trees. You now see that when you are blessed of God you will flourish like a palm tree. You will be very useful. It means that every thing that is dead it is time to shed them off. 4. Application how does it apply to me personally? I look for the verbs verbs to be verbs to do What do I need to stop being? What do I need to become? The easiest way to bear mango fruit is to become a mango tree. So be. The easiest way to memorize is to keep repeating. Let us take Psalm 100. Say it and keep repeating it. God is saying that within 6 months 3 years at least 3 natural resources will be discovered in Jordan. You have discovered one type of Uranium but both are present here. God is waiting for the chirping of the birds. You memorize by repeating it to yourself. You memorize by repeating it to your friends. Joshua 1:8 says Confess, Proclaim every day you are agreeing with God. You are supposed to meditate on it day and night. You are looking at it from different angels after a point you will digest it. It is only what you digest that will be useful. Pray and ask God to help you to digest every Word of God. Open every thing in your life to digest the Word of God. It is what you digest that becomes useful. Hosea 14:2 Let us take words and go back to the Lord you are supposed to pray the Scriptures. It is when you study the Word of God that you will understand. God is about to release an expression of His Word in your heart. Job 23:12 Esteem the Word of God more than your necessary food. Jeremiah 15:16 Eat the Word. You shall meditate therein day and night so that you will observe to do. So do the Word of God and he will surprise you with joy.

Finally after you have practiced make sure you do not sit on it. Share it with others. Do so you can teach others.
