[u][size=24][b]GOD IS A SPIRIT[/b][/size][/u] [size=18]God Is a Spirit (John 4:24 ).[/size] [size=18][b][u]What relationship can we have with a Spirit?[/u][/b][/size] God made a plan that He can relate to His chosen people. This is through His spoken words. Can the spoken words be separated from the Speaker? "Are" the Speaker and the Word counted two? Or, one and the same? [size=18][b]This is the essence of John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God ."[/b] The spoken words were relayed to His prophets and apostles. [/size]2 Peter 1:21 "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." From another angle, we see the Word as referring to Jesus Christ. [b][size=18]John 1:14 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us..."[/size] [size=18]Revelation 19:13 "And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God."[/size][/b] Just as God relates to His chosen through His words; so is the Word in the flesh: 1 Timothy 2:5 "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" Since the creation of man, God had been relating to the people through His spoken words. In the beginning the spoken word was conveyed from mouth to mouth from generation to generation. Moses began putting these words in writing in the book of Genesis, the first book. The last person was John the apostle, who wrote the book of Revelation as he was exiled in the island of Patmos . The prophets and apostles, therefore, were the WRITERS while God is the AUTHOR. The writers might have different styles in writing, but the message cannot be altered. In the beginning, the words were written on bark of trees and skin of animals. Later, these were transferred to the crude form of paper called papyrus, and compiled into rolls. It was only after the invention of the printing press in the mid 20th century, that we have the words of God printed in books, which we now call the Holy Bible. This is the proof that, indeed, God is represented by His words: 2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
