The Son of God is called the Word of God several times in the Bible (John 1:1)(Revelation 19:13). This is a very important concept to understand; knowing what this means will fulfill many of our inner desires in life.
People fundamentally desire a relationship with their Maker. This is put into them by Him, that they might seek Him out by reaching for Him.
He made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the surface of the earth, having determined appointed seasons, and the boundaries of their dwellings, that they should seek the Lord, if perhaps they might reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. (Acts 17:26, 27)
Unfortunately, because we are born into a world, both tainted by sin and full of evil spirits wishing us harm, we very early learn to rely upon what our senses tell us rather than trust the voice of God. In the matter of knowing God, this leads us to look for Him in the physical world. People search for something tangible that will connect them to the Creator. This is seen in the quest for and devotion to various religious artifacts like the Holy Grail, the Shroud of Turin, the Ark of the Covenant, and Noah's Ark. Beyond this, many people go even further with plans to build temples, shrines, and other physical objects which they believe will connect them to God.
He is the Holy Grail, from which poured the precious Blood that cleanses us from all sin, delivers us from the wrath to come, and gives us life in our innermost being.
He is the Holy Shroud, which covers our mortal bodies with eternal life. His covering hides the sins of our past—the old man that has been crucified—and bears the proof that we have died to this life. He, as the Shroud, allows us to fill up the suffering that we lack (Colossians 1:24), as His apostles have shown us (Hebrews 12:3-4).
He is the Ark of the Covenant, Who houses the Life of God [the Manna from heaven; (Hebrews 9:4), the perfect Law of Love [the Tablets of the Ten Commandments; (Hebrews 9:4)], and the Proof of Priesthood [the rod of Aaron which budded; (Numbers 17:5-8)]. Beside Him are the natural commandments flowing out of a life lived in love [the Law; (Deuteronomy 31:26)].
He is Noah's Ark, who has made one from the many, bringing the remnant of a wicked generation into Himself, for salvation and deliverance to a new age of life and victory in Yahweh, in the midst of the judgment of the Father brought from heaven to the earth.
He is the Temple of Yahweh, which houses the perfect worship of the Father, in spirit and truth. In Him are found the priests of the Covenant, who offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to the Father through Him.
He is all of these physical, tangible things, yet in truth and reality, not merely in outward form. He is the Word of Yahweh, the Embodiment of God, the One Who has brought all things to completion in His own self. He is the Truth, about which Yahweh has been testifying to the world for these many millenia. He is the Reality!
For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily, and in him you are made full, who is the head of all principality and power; (Colossians 2:9, 10)
When we come to know this and to truly understand, we will be drawn unto Him. He is everything that we desire—our connection to God, the artifact which brings the presence of the Creator. In Him are all things that bring joy, peace and true life.
As you read this site, you will hopefully come to know Yahweh more fully.
But all of this continuing knowledge is useless unless and until you come into union with Him. I use the word union because it is truly a marriage. It is that deep connection we all seek, for which we most often look in other people. However, the truth is that our hearts will only be fulfilled when we enter that union in fullness with the One Who made us.
This is the grace of God, that He has not stayed distant for us only to worship as Creator. But He has come unto us, even become one of us—in His Son, ChristJesus—in order to share an intimate union with us. He desires such closeness that it truly will envelope our entire life, transforming us into something new and wonderful.
You may have already entered this union with Him and only seek to know Him better through reading here. But if you have not, as you do read, let this Gospel sink into your heart as you read it now.
God loves you, and has cast your sins into the sea. He has sent His only Son as the Savior of the world—that includes you.
That Son, JesusChrist, was born as a man through a virgin who had given her life to Yahweh; He lived without sin, reflected the glory of His Father, God, in all His words and deeds, and was persecuted even unto death because of it.
His death upon a cross was the powerful explosion that separated you from your life of death. It remains for you, now, to enter into that death with Him. As you die to the one you are now, a person separated from God from your many sins, you will be born anew, with a nature predisposed to live rightly. This gift is free to you, with nothing you can do to earn it. It is the mercy of God to offer it to you, as He loves you so much! All you must do is receive it by trusting Him to have delivered you. Simply place your life in His hands and embrace the freedom that came through that death on the cross.
The Gospel is that Jesus did not remain dead, but rose again on the third day after His crucifixion! Death could not hold Him, as He was without sin. And so death will not be able to hold you, as you identify with Him fully through your trust in Him. Let go of yourself and confess Him as Lord of your life. The power of His death and resurrection will work in you all that your Creator has destined for you. You will truly enter a new life and experience that intimate union you have been seeking all of your life.
So ponder these words as you read here of this great God—Yahweh—and all that He has revealed to His creation. Let His Spirit testify to your heart that these words are true, that God is Love, and that He sent His Son so that you might receive the life that is unbound by time and space. As you feel that witness in your heart, simply believe and receive what He is offering to you, even now, and begin your new life as a child of God.
