ILLUS: (I had 6 plastic see through pitchers on stage… one of which was full of water. Holding up an empty pitcher I said…) Imagine this empty pitcher represents that nation of Israel. (I began to pour water from the full pitcher into the empty one).
God poured out His will and wisdom into them.

1. Speak the Word of God.
2. Believe the Word of God.
I tell the students that I teach in our schools around the world to stand and repeat these words before each session.

The Word of God is a treasure Map
Their was a wonderful movie from 1963 “It’s a Mad Mad world” It was about a madcap cross-country rush to find buried treasure marked by the letter “W”.
It was four palm trees leaning that resemble the W. At the W the treasure was found.

IRENAEUS ON THE WORD OF GOD

GREEK WORDS FOR GOD'S LOVE
The Hebrew words for love are more meaningful than the Greek ones, especially two of them.

HISTORICAL IMPACT OF THE WORD OF GOD
In every genuine revival among God’s people the revealed word of the Lord has had a large place. It was so in Josiah’s day, and in the awakening under Hezekiah. It has been so throughout the Church period. It was the recovery of the Word that brought about
"Divine Inspiration is not asserted of the authors of Scripture but of the writings themselves. But inspiration was not mechanical. The Holy Spirit did not destroy the personality and individual characteristics of the individual writers but rather so worked through the entire being of the

HIDING THE WORD OF GOD
During World War II, Jewish inmates of the Yanov labor camp in occupied Poland defied their Nazi guards, secretly conducting religious services inside their darkened barracks. To observe their ritual, the Jews had cut religious scrolls into sections, bound the parchment
LISTEN TO THE WORD OF GOD
I witnessed something similar to this on an airplane once. I kept hearing outbursts of laughter. The flight was turbulent and bumpy, hardly a reason for humour. But some fellow behind me was cracking up. No one else, just him.
Finally I turned to see what was so

There is tremendous power in the Word of God. This truth is illustrated in a story told by C. H. Spurgeon. Out of curiosity, an agnostic who belonged to what was known as the "Hell-fire Club" attended a service where George Whitefield was preaching. At the next meeting of the club, the young man

As Jack Hayford describes,
Consider the one thing this world which you and I can touch that has "eternity" written into its fabric. It’s the Word of God. Every time I take a Bible in hand, I hold eternity, because the life-force inherent in that Word exceeds
Voltaire was born in Paris, France in 1694. As a philosopher, historian and free thinker, he became a most influential and prolific writer during what has been called the Age of Enlightenment. He vehemently opposed the Christian faith and wrote many rather scoffing works expressing his disdain

POWER OF THE TRANSLATED WORD OF GOD
This is a strategy still used today, because it works and this is how it is still used today: A friend of mine, Bill, was a bible translator for Wycliff Bible Translators in some very remote mountains in Bolivia. Bill was on the second Wycliff team. The first

Like a Beethoven concerto, the word of God is simple enough to be enjoyed by a child, and at the same time, deep enough to reward a lifetime of dedicated study. A three-year old can grasp the story of Jonah and the whale, and a Ph.D. in theology can spend a lifetime trying to fathom how God could
Trying to destroy or defend the Word of God is like having two men push with toothpicks on opposite sides of the Rock of Gibraltar. While one is trying to push it over with his toothpick, the other is trying to hold it up

THE WORD OF GOD SENT THROUGH THE PROPHETS
You want success - believe the word of God he has sent through his prophets. Period.

THE WORD OF GOD--THE OWNER'S MANUAL
As a kid, I remember a very popular game. Simon Says. Usually played at school or parties, several of us would do whatever "Simon" told us to do, as long as it was preceded by the phrase: "Simon Says".
It seems to me that we have become a society of "Simon

The Word of God changes the unlovely, and makes them lovely. I had a friend in Africa who was a missionary. He was over there eking out a living and preaching the Good News to all he could. He had spent time in the State penitentiary, but was changed by the Word of God. You see, they were
