1 Corinthians 6:17 states that we are One Spirit with the Lord, and we've seen in the last article, One [more], that we're One Spirit with the Father as well.
But according the Bible, Jesus is The Word, and we're the Word multiplied! [John 1, Acts 12:24]
Back to our math example...if a = b and b = c, then a = c.
So if we're One with the Lord, and Jesus is the Word, we're ONE WITH THE WORD!
I can't stand it!!
Let's see what The Word has to say about The Word...
'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word WAS God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.'And the WORD became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. [John 1:1-3, 14]
This is good...remember, eternity is not only forward, it's backwards, too, because there is no time in eternity! Ephesians 1 says we were chosen IN HIM before the foundation of the world, and Colossians 1:16 says all things were created by Him...by the Word of God!
Were we in Him when He made the world? I really think we were...
An interesting aside...in John 1, He is the only begotten of the Father, but after His resurrection, all who believe on Him are born of God, born again of the imperishable seed which is the living and enduring WORD of God. [1 Peter 1:23]
He is the Firstborn of many brethren [Romans 8:29] and the Firstborn from the dead. [Colossians 1:18]
We are called the Church of the Firstborn. [Hebrews 12:23]
He is the Word, the Firstborn, and we are One Spirit with Him!
Of course, He's still the only begotten of the Father, because we are ONE WITH HIM!! We're in Him and He is in us...one.
Hallelujah! One with the WORD!!
