The Power Of God's Word In Creation
The Bible says that the universe was created by a word of God.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. HEBREWS 11:3
God's Spoken (rhema) Word Has The Power To Create Life
The rhema Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. HEBREWS 4:12
In LUKE 1:26-38 God sent an angel to tell a young woman called Mary that she was going to bear a child who was going to be the Saviour of the world.
1 God sent a message to Mary via an angel (Greek angelos = messenger). Angels appear frequently in both Old and New Testaments as messengers from God to individuals. But we are not to worship them. REVELATION 19:10
2 Mary questioned the angel about the message to check it really was God speaking. The angel then explained how she would become pregnant and that she could check it out by the fact that her cousin Elisabeth, who had not been able to have children and was well past child-bearing age, was already five months pregnant.
3 In verse 37 the angel made a very important statement. Most translations of the Greek read: " Nothing is impossible with God."
In fact the Greek actually says - "Every rhema word spoken by God has tremendous power" (literally "is not without power") The Amplified Bible translates it accurately as "No word from God shall be without power". In other words, when God speaks you can be sure he will do what he says.
4 God will always confirm what he has said
either by repeating it several times in different ways
or by the results to be seen when we are obedient.
