But, Jesus answered and said, "It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4).
One may say, "Where do I find these words?" "How is it possible to live by them?" After all, these are the very words of Almighty God himself; who is the architect and designer of everything we see, feel and touch. Also, with everything that cannot be seen or embraced in our past, present and future. Can you imagine that? Words that are inhabited by the Spirit of God; for all Scripture is given by inspiration of God. ( 2 Timothy 3:16)
We are brought to the Bible, "the word of God!" After close examination we find that the word of God takes on another remarkable transformation; the transformation, the man Jesus Christ! And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14) If that were not enough, this word of God, that has taken flesh can not only dwell in you; but must dwell in you! Let the word of God dwell in you richly. (Colossians 3:16). All of this seems to expound to more words that have proceeded out of the mouth of God; the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge and prophecy. (1 Corinthians 12:8&10). As we enlarge the word of God, Jesus said, " My sheep here my voice." (John 10:27)
Here is the key to all of this. In a parable concerning life after death, Jesus told about a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus.(Luke 16:20). The rich man managed to find himself in hell.Being in torment, he greatly desired that his brothers, who were still alive in this world, would not find themselves in this place of torment, evading their inevitable placement. He pleads, "Father Abraham, if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent." God's responds, "if they hear not Moses and the prophets (God's words) neither will they be persuaded though one arose from the dead."
What do you think? Should you and I read our Bibles and asked Father God for help to live the same? You be the judge. Praise the Lord!
