His Word Goes Forth


To All,

His Word goes forth:

"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." (Isa. 55:11).

Why Preach the Gospel:

God says: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent." Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, {{{it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe}}}. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:" (1 Cor. 1:19-22).

Notice again: "it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe"... So what is that message: The verse follows: "But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greek, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. (1 Cor. 1:23:24). And I would continue on... in 1 Corinthians.

"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called." (1 Cor. 1:23)

"That no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, "he That glorieth, let him glory in the LORD." (1 Cor. 1:29-31).

The 1 Corinthians Chapter One, is after Christ's ministry, after the crucifixion, after the ascension of our Lord, and after the revelation was given him (Paul). (See: Acts 26:16-18; Gal. 1:15-18; 1 Tim. 1:16; Eph. 3:1-3). "Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me FIRST Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on Him to life everlasting." (1 Tim. 1:16).

What is the Gospel Message:

1 Cor. 2 tells us what was being preached. "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.... And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." (1 Cor. 2:1-5). "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation" (1 Cor. 3:10).

1 Cor. 15:3,4 "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:" (1 Cor. 15:3,4). "In Whom we have redemtpion through His blood, the forgiveness of sins... 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." (Eph. 1:7,13,14). "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For He is our peace, Who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man,..." (Eph. 2:8-14).

"The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth and in thy heart" that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Rom. 10:8,9). And what is the power of this gospel message? "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Rom. 10:10).

The result of hearing and believing:

With that let us go to Eph. 4:8 (Psalms 68:18): "Wherefore He saith, "When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men." Being in Him our vessel is changed from corruptible to incorruptible. "For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life." (2 Cor. 2:15,16). Therefore, our scent has changed and is now pleasing to God. (Phil. 4:18).
