Last week, I showed you the importance of God’s Word. I told you that the Word of God is the antidote to hardship, frustration and stagnation.
God’s Word is full of wonders! God’s Word is converted to power at the instance of your faith. We are born again for signs and for wonders. Every child of God is ordained to be a wonder to his world (Isaiah 8:18). I breifly showed you how to become a wonder and the master tool for the working of wonders. Today, I will show you, ‘The wonder genes in the Word Of God.’
The Spirit Of Life: “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). In the Word is life. What kind of life is in the Word? It is divine life (II Peter 1:4). So, we partake of divine life from the Word.
The more Word-loaded you are, the more divine nature you exhibit. It distinguishes everyone that comes to this world. So, through the Word, we imbibe divine nature that distinguishes us among men. The Word of God inculcates divine nature, and that gets you immune to all forms of sickness and disease (Proverbs 2:20-22). So, that life exhibit itself in form of divine health.
The Power Genes: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek”. (Romans 1:16). God’s Word carries power genes. By receiving the Word, you are empowered to manifest as a son of God (John 1:12).
What does this power carry?: (a). It carries the power to live above all hurt (Psalms 66:3). (b). It carries the power to cause your enemies to surrender. (c). It carries the power to rule and to reign, in spite of your enemies (Psalms 110:1-3).
Creative genes: God’s Word can creatively re-package your destiny, and give it colour and beauty. “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”. (John 1:3). In Genesis 1:1-31, God said, and God saw! God’s Word is loaded with creative genes.
Breakthrough genes: The breakthrough forces in the Word are irresistible and unstoppable. Scriptures are packaged for profitable living. There are breakthrough genes in scriptures (II Timothy 3:16-17; 1 Timothy 4:13,15).
Divine light genes: “The entrance of His Word giveth light and it gives understanding to the simple” (Psalms 119:130). That light does not only enlighten you, it lightens you up. It turns you to a divine illuminant. It offers direction (Psalms 119:105). It confers dominion over the forces of darkness (Psalms 60:1-2).
Victory genes: Behind every verse of scripture is the victorious voice of the Lord (Psalm 29:3).
Prophetic genes: The Word of God carries prophetic genes. God’s Word is prophetic in nature. When you believe it, you have committed God to confirm it (II Peter 1:21).
Spiritual wine: There is spiritual wine in the Word. Wine maketh merry (Isaiah 55:1). So, there is joy and rejoicing in the Word. The wine of the Word is highly intoxicating. It puts you perpetually on top of situations.
Healing genes: God’s Word carries healing virtues. Jesus was preaching and the power of God was present to heal them (Luke 5:17). The power of God was present in the Word that He was teaching them. When you sit down in the Word, you are in God’s clinic. Through His Word, He transmits into you healing genes, so you can live a healthy life.
Avenues through which God opens The Book:
New birth grants you access to the mysteries of the Word (Mark 4:11). 2. By the ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 16:12; John 14:26).
