“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.”
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;”
God and His Word are one. Fellowship with the Word is fellowship with God. In fact, the Word has become our contact with the Father. We fellowship with the Father on the ground or basis of His Word. When we meditate on the Word, we are visiting with the Father. The Word has become His breath breathing within us. We literally can hear Him speak to us by the Word, and because the Word dwells in us, He dwells in us. Our embrace of His Word is our embrace of Him; and we perceive His warm and pure embrace of us by the Word running as streams of refreshing deep within our hearts in meditation. What a beautiful fellowship that is made available to us by the Word! What a life of intimacy and oneness with Him that He’s called us unto by the fellowship of the Word. What a glorious life we stand to enjoy because He has given us Himself through the Word. Touching the Word in meditation is touching the Father, for God and the Word are one. Hence the Word is God speaking to us. The Word is God fellowshipping with us. The Word is God sharing Himself with us. What a life and blessing this is! Hallelujah!
Our opening Scripture tells us that the Word was in the beginning, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. It says the same was with God in the beginning. God is the same as His Word, and remains in inseparable fellowship with the Word. Just as smoothly and flawlessly as there is fellowship between the Father and the Word, there can be fellowship between us and the Father by the Word. When we get into the Word via meditation, the Spirit reveals the Father to us so plainly and freely. We get into fellowship with Him and get to understand His deep intents and secret desires. The Word truly reveals the Father to us. We cannot say we have not heard Him having heard the Word, for God and His Word are one; and His Word is God Himself speaking to us. This is the fellowship that every child and lover of God deeply covets: Fellowship with the Word. It is the Father coming home to us. We must love to meditate on the Word and act upon it as though the Father Himself has told us something to do. This is what it takes to maintain fellowship with the Father: Receiving His Word and living by it. We must not break fellowship with the Word. Peradventure we do, we must repent and let the blood purge us from all unrighteousness. Staying in fellowship with the Word is staying in fellowship with the Father.
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I show and maintain the right attitude to the Word of the Lord. I believe that God’s Word is God speaking to me; therefore, every time I receive the Word on any matter, I have heard from heaven. Amen.
