Heaven and Hell bears witness to the AUTHORITY OF THE WORD when Jesus and Satan battled in the wilderness, both using the word.
The Word is more than the sum total of the Letters.
The Word of GOD rightly divided carries the Authority of GOD, the very Holy Spirit of GOD; otherwise they’re just dead letters.
“The entrance of YOUR WORDS gives light…”-Psalm 119:130.
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of life.”- John 8:12.
We are lights of the world after Christ, not because we can throw principles (dead letters) around, but because we share the Holy Spirit of Christ.
“He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant–NOT OF THE LETTER but of the Spirit; for the LETTER KILLS, but the Spirit gives life.”-2 Corinthians 3:6.
The letter can also be used by Satan; he is the thief who comes only to steal and kill and destroy- John 10:10.
Can you tell the difference between a thief and a light when they’re both quoting the Bible?
Emphasis on RELATIONSHIP with the Holy Spirit Himself, not cherry picking principles from the Bible. The letter kills but the Spirit gives life.
READ YOUR BIBLE, MEDITATE, PRAY, TRUST, AND OBEY GOD…Kuorire
