Thy WORD is Truth, Whose Word is it you Have?
“Heaven Sent or Hell Bound?”
(1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(2) The same was in the beginning with God.
(3) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
(4) In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Whose WORD is it? ..Word of the Lord
Whose Word is it, the Word of the Lord or is it just an opinion? Maybe it is a false prophet, which we use a lot! But just maybe it is not the Word that you were taught in your man made denominations? You see, in those denominations; traditions have set up fences around the Word. Jesus addressed this when he said “Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, this people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” Mark 7:8
Moreover he said again in Mark 7:9 “Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.” Then again Jesus said in Mark 7:13 “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye!” In Matthew 15:14 Jesus said speaking of the Pharisee’s who rejected and did not like what Jesus was teaching and told his disciple of this. Jesus then said to his disciples “let them alone”, speaking of the Pharisee’s who were offended by his speech; then adding “they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Whose WORD is it? …Traditions
The traditions of men, were handed down orally; from Elder, from Father to Son; to the next generation. Then that generation handed down these customs, adding more customs and teachings of men to the previous one until the amount of this was unbearable to carry. It became that over time, these teachings and customs became more important than the Word of God! So much so, it made the Word of the Lord ineffective; mainly because the people put no stock or trust in it! They were more inclined to follow what mere mortal men had to say than the Word of God written down by Moses; which was direct Revelation of God.
