net The Word Eternal
By Andre Rabe
Long before the first line of scripture


was penned on a papyrus scroll, the Word, unwritten, existed as the mind of God. Before the books were gathered collated as sacred writings, the Word, intangible; invisible, was planning, was ordering the ages that were to come. This Word predates the Bible, this Word predates creation, this Word is alive and active and speaking still today. “Heaven is my throne room; I rest my feet on earth. So what kind of house will you build me?” says God. What kind of doctrine could capture Him, What kind of information could define Him, What kind of book could contain Him?

Yet, despite His boundless nature, within His infinite wisdom, He devised a crafty plan, by which would fit themselves into the form of a humble seed: The DNA of His own life, encrypted within the written word. And so began the writing of that which we now call: the Bible - the Scriptures. Within the limitations and imperfections of human words and human authors God deposited His eternal perfect seed. A seed is not a tree; the Scriptures are not our God, Yet a seed is the beginning, the start provided with fruitful soil, encouraged by water and light, a seed gives birth to a being much greater than itself. His plan foresaw the day in which this seed would blossom no longer encrypted; no longer disguised but fully expressed in the person of Jesus - the Christ - the Son His thoughts, His intents

Perfect Seed

The One who was in the beginning revealed within our midst Immanuel - God with us the Word became flesh. His desire is still the same: for His Word to break free of the boundaries of letters and text and theories and yet again, became flesh, and yet again find expression in a person: you - the chosen - the offspring of God. So as we approach the Scriptures, do more than read what is written listen to what is spoken. So once again we can encounter the mind, the voice, the person who spoke long before pen or paper were born.
