The following is The Bible's own definition of what God's word is:

 

THE WORD IS

 

SWEETPSALMS 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

 

HONEY PSALMS 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

 

BREAD DEUTERONOMY 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he

might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.

 

BREAD LUKE 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

 

WATER EPHESIANS 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

 

MILK 1 PETER 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

 

MEAT - HEBREWS 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and

are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

 

GOOD JEREMIAH 29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing

you to return to this place.

 

PUREPSALMS 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

 

TRIEDPSALMS 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

FOREVER ISAIAH 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

 

A FIREJEREMIAH 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

 

HAMMERJEREMIAH 23:29 Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

gainsayers.

the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

 

A SWORDHEBREWS 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.

 

A DISCERNER - HEBREWS 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.

 

MORE SUREII PETER 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day

dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

 

 

The Bible is also very clear about what the word of God does.

 

WHAT THE WORD DOES

 

 

TRIES PSALMS 105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

 

CLEANSESPSALMS 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

GIVES UNDERSTANDING PSALMS 119: 130 The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

 

RUNS VERY SWIFTLY PSALMS 147:15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.

 

ACCOMPLISHES ISAIAH 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth

and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it

shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 

PROSPERS - ISAIAH 55: 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and

bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it

shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

 

JUDGES JOHN 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last

day.

 

SANCTIFIESJOHN 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 

BUILDS UP - ACTS 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all

them which are sanctified.

 

WORKS EFFECTUALLY I THESSALONIANS 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of

us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

 

SAVES JAMES 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

 

EPHESIANS 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with

that holy Spirit of promise,

 

ROMANS 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

 

I PETER 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure

heart fervently:

23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

 

I am not suggesting that the Bible and God are equal, but if a person will compare what the word is and what the word does with the Lord God Almighty Himself, the only possible conclusion that any reasonable person could reach is that GOD and HIS HOLY WORD are INSEPARABLE!
