The Word = The Son of God

I’ll let the following Scripture speak for itself:

creche

  • 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 came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. … And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. – 1 John 1:1-3, 14

creation-3

  • In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. … Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear”; and it was so. And God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. … Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;” … And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created them. – Genesis 1:1, 9, 26, 27
  • It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I (Jesus) have spoken to you are spirit and are life. – John 6:63

creation-2

  • By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth – Psalm 33:6

The Father, the Son, and the Spirit are all involved in Creation. God spoke and the earth and heavens came into existence. The Word (the Son) is a person of the Trinity and His activity follows directly from His being – the activity of speaking creation results in creation. It’s hard to get my mind around this – God’s word is Living and is the source of life. The word of God is powerful in every sense of the word – it has authority and accomplishes what it intends.
