3 That’s the Word in action !
That the Word of God is living and effective is supported in several passages of the Old Testament (cf.. Isa 55,10-11 : For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there until they have watered the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty,but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
It is a kind of divine attribute that is separated from the deity, seen as a reality in itself, a kind of emissary that God uses.The effectiveness of the word for the Israelites comes from the fact that it is the physical expression of what is contained in the soul , who is speaking to a person transmits what he has created in his own soul. For this reason, if the word is bad produces unhappiness, if it’s good, is not just a wish, but it creates something good, producing happiness in the recipient. If, therefore, it is not the product of the human spirit, but the spirit of God is clear that the effects will be in proportion as it will produce a series of effects. (to be continued)
