1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was god.1 [Christ is the Word of God; his name is the word of God. The Bible is not the Word; the Bible is scriptures. "The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning. Then I was by him, as one brought up with him; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him." Pro 8:22-30.]
13 And he was clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God.1 [Click to see the 125 scripture verses that state: "the word of the Lord came, speaking" and "the word of God came, speaking."]
16 And he has on his garment and on his thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches will know that I am he who searches the minds and the hearts; and I will give to each of you according to your works.6 [Notice again! Jesus is referencing their works, which are works of loving obedience to the commands you hear spoken from God in your heart.]
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the mind,2 to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings [works].
27 And he [Jesus] who searches the hearts,7 knows what is the mind of the Spirit because he [Jesus] makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
|1 Chronicles 28:9 |
9 And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts and understands all the intents of the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.
