The “Word” of God

 

We know that “by faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are not seen. The creative word is that creative energy for words that have power and when we speak there is consequence. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit”. In Christian theology the study of the Holy Spirit is called pneumatology, from two Greek words, pneuma meaning “wind,” “breath,” or “spirit” and logos meaning “word,” or “logic.” Generally this includes such topics as the personality of the Spirit, the deity of the Spirit, and the work of the Spirit as presented in the Bible. Synergy from the Greek , (meaning working together, circa 1600) refers to the phenomenon in which two or more discrete influences or agents acting together create an effect greater than that predicted by knowing only the separate effects of the individual agents. It is originally a scientific term. The Apostle Paul used the word in his Epistle to illustrate a dynamic conception of human, divine and cosmic cooperation: “I did the planting, Apollos the watering, but God made things grow…We are fellow workers with God; you are God’s cultivation, God’s building. Synergism stems from the 1657 Theological doctrine that humans will cooperate with the DivineGrace Regeneration. The term began to be used in the broader, non-theological, sense by 1925. Synergy can also mean: A mutually advantageous conjunction where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. A dynamic state in which combined action is favored over the sum of individual component actions.  This is the Creative Energy that has come unto you and has rendered you invisible while the outer shell remains. This renovation project called “seed” that started so small can grow to magnificent heights and produce wonderful fruit. “And the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit”. In Christian theology the study of the Holy Spirit is called pneumatology, from two Greek words, pneuma meaning “wind,” “breath,” or “spirit” and logos meaning “word,” or “logic.” Generally this includes such topics as the personality of the Spirit, the deity of the Spirit, and the work of the Spirit as presented in the Bible. After his resurrection, Jesus planted a portion from his victorious, overcoming spirit into his disciples, as seeds into soft earth. “As the Father sent me, so in the same way I send you.” And having said this, He infused Himself into them, and said, “Receive Holy Spirit.” John 20:21, 22. Those who will become the Sons of God must receive this spirit seed from Jesus Christ. This seed will join with the spirit in a man or woman, and a new conception will occur. A new spirit life is formed. This fledgling entity is an embryonic Son of God and as it is written: “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature”.
