“When there is no divine revelation, the people are unrestrained; but he who keeps Torah is happy.” (Proverbs 29:18)
If we believe that all that is visible was created by the Word of ADONAI ELOHIM, then there is no doubt that divine revelation is the building block for life. Without divine revelation, there is no road map. Without divine revelation, there is no picture of tomorrow. Without divine revelation, there is no glue that holds the Church together as one. Without divine revelation, there is no hope but only darkness. After all, what’s the point of going when you don’t know where you’re headed? There is even no reference point where you are.
So, what is divine revelation? According to the prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, etc, “The word of ADONAI came to me saying…” It is quite amazing how the prophets describe the message as the “word” (Heb “dabar”). When you think about how ADONAI ELOHIM created all that we see by simply speaking the “word” and how each “word” contained the very idea of each created thing, we could surmise that this “word” must have been pure spiritual energy translating into visible reality all things. A word from ELOHIM therefore, is a powerful agent of change; a catalyst of future circumstances that constitute the very elements of history.
In the past, ADONAI ELOHIM spoke to us in various ways through the prophets, but in these last days, He spoke to us by His SON, YESHUA the Messiah (Heb 1:1) . The prophets were the mouthpiece of GOD but the SON is the exact representation of the FATHER who embodied the word of GOD. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. GOD saw to it that everyone has access to His word through the Bible.
Not only that, the SPIRIT of YESHUA now tabernacles in each believer, making us His living representatives, thinking, speaking, acting through us. What does this make of us? In effect, we become the messengers of GOD, also embodying His character. We speak His word, and that word carries the same spiritual energy as if GOD himself is speaking.
Unfortunately, not many Christians fully believed YESHUA when He said, “The things I do, you shall do also, and greater things than these shall you do because I am going to the FATHER.” (Jn 14:12).
To walk with YESHUA is to embark into the greatest adventure of life. Would you dare?
