Pondering God (Part 15)

15 May. God is.... the Word. I know you are thinking that Grease is The Word. But that's a latecomer to the contest. In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
You might be saying, "Wait, if something is _with_ another, then it cannot _be_ the other." And your quick assertion is a reasonable conclusion. Except that we are talking about the Almighty. And His ways and HIs nature and His characters are not always our ways. 
When I say God is The Word, I mean that everything God says about Himself is completely reliable. I mean He is His own best promise. "I give you my Word," people say when they mean, "I promise you." This also means as reliable as they are, so is their word. When God says, "I promise" whether it be re: a flood, or a covenant with Abram, Isaac, Jacob, David, and Yeshua, it means God is giving us His Word. 
But He is more than promising. He is saying, If I don't come through, then you can disregard me. In the book of Hebrews, we read, "so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us." (6.18)
Promises made; promises broken. That's the way of the world. Promises made; promises kept. That's the way of God.
If you know yourself, you know that you make and break promises even if you don't want to do so. 
If you know the Lord, you know He is entirely trustworthy. He is His Word. If He fails in HIs promises to us, He is a failure and then He implodes. He is the Word. 
Yeshua is God's Final Word to humankind. What God said in Yeshua is completely reliable. Yeshua is completely reliable. How great is our God!
