A Person Who Sees the Word Is a Person Who Sees God

John 1:1-18  

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

(John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

John 12:45

The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me.

John 10:35

If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came—and Scripture cannot be set aside—

Although we cannot see the spirit of the Lord or God, we can see Their Word. Since the Word is God, reading God’s Word carefully is seeing God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit symbolically. You must read the Word. If you do, God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit work through the Word to enlighten and tell you what They must.


The Word Became Flesh

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” means that God gave the Word to the one He sent and let him testify about God. Jesus said that seeing Him was seeing God because God sent Him and spoke through His body. 

Since the Word is God, if anyone rejects the Word, they are also rejecting God. The one who understands the Word is the one who understands God’s heart. Loving, reading, and delighting in the Word is equivalent to loving God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus.


Taking Action Is Actual True Love

Acting on God’s Word is the same as a man truly loving a woman. Instead of just expressing our love to the Trinity with words alone, we should do the things They want. Only then would it be actual true love. Only if you take action will history be made and can you come out from death to life. Those who take action are the people who are full of the grace, truth, and love of the Holy Trinity.


The Word Determines Your Destiny

In order to save, God always gives the Word through His body. A person who does not hear the Word, believe it, and follow cannot fulfill God’s purpose. The Word itself is God’s love. Therefore, by hearing that Word and taking action on it, you can become God’s counterpart of love. 

Know that Word given by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit determines your eternity, and act on it. Realize that when love is shattered, everything is shattered. You must love to the extreme the Word of love that God and Jesus give and keep it. If you do, both your body and spirit will take on the form of love and become Their counterpart of love.
