the red letters

It is difficult to translate what is received in a moment of revelation- like when you are dreaming. You are in a place and there are people there. Without a word being said you know where your at, why the people are there, their motivations, etc. without a conversation happening. There is a 'download', if you will, of information passed to you in an instant that lay a foundation for the "movie" that is about to take place. You can have a three-minute dream, that takes ten pages to write down- that is like the revelation I am talking about.

It occurred to me today in a great moment of revelation as I was teaching on how Jesus KNEW the Word of God that Jesus, being the Word, contained in the Word, is released by the Word. By every word, every "red" letter that Jesus said, we are connecting to Him when out of our mouths we with our breath speak the red letters.

I cannot adequately translate the understanding I have received, and am still mediating on, however, there is something stirred up in me to seek after; the mysteries of releasing the spoken words of Christ.

We know that there is great power in the spoken word; by His words He created all things, and in the tongue there is the power of life and death (Prov. 18:21). Considering the power of the spoken word, now consider the power of Jesus. Jesus the God-Man in all His miraculous splendor.

Now, add to that the consideration of John 1:1-3:

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made."

So now when you utter the red letters out of your mouth you are connecting with God in such a powerful way- for Jesus IS the Word, and the very power that creates life, that brings hope, miracles, and peace, those words are not merely 'words', they are Jesus Alive.

Oh the Mysteries of Christ!
