Read Today’s Rhapsody of Realities May 27 2023 Written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Today’s Topic is: Knowing the Word of God
- Knowing the Word of God is crucial, not just as an academic pursuit, but as a revelation guided by the Holy Spirit. The Word of God reveals God’s works, will, thoughts, plans, purposes, and pursuit to bring men into fellowship with Him. Understanding the Word allows believers to comprehend God’s thoughts and intentions, essentially looking into God’s mind or heart. This understanding guides believers in making choices and decisions that align with God’s perfect will.
Today’s Message For Rhapsody of Realities
The statutes of the LORD are right rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes (Psalm 19:8).
When we emphasize the word of God, some think importance we mean of acquiring knowing “Bible Knowledge” from a university or religious institution. That may have its place, but knowing the Word by revelation and guidance of the Holy Spirit is different.
There’re Bible scholars who studied Bible knowledge as a course but have no idea what the Word of God is. All scripture is God-breathed; that is, the contents and the message of the Bible came from God and are inspired by His Spirit. It’s His document of truth, and it’s trustworthy and dependable.
2 Timothy 3:16 AMPC says, “Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience,[and] for training in righteousness (in holy living,in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose,and action).

Hebrews 4:12 further tells us something extraordinary about the Word of God. It says, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
But then, what is the Word of God? The Word is that message from God that reveals or communicates His works, will, thoughts, plans, purposes and pursuit to bring men into, or promote, fellowship with Him in love. It’s His message of truth with the content and power to build His image into the life of the hearers.
Now, the content of the Word is the embodiment of Christ’s revelations, provisions, perfections and instructions, profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, Instruction and for training in righteousness. Therefore, knowing or having the knowledge of the Word means knowing God in His thoughts about anything You know His thoughts, opinions, ideas, and agenda; you’re looking into God’s mind or His heart about anything! What a wonder!
Dear Father, thank you for your Word that propels, empowers, inspires, uplifts, motivates and gives me clarity of purpose. I’m educated to know your thoughts, opinions, ideas and agenda in the earth, as your Spirit guides me into all truth, teaching me to make the right choices and decisions that are consistent with your perfect will always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.
2 Peter 1:21
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
2 Timothy 3:14-17
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good work
