[The Glory Unveiled]
“You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. ( Genesis 3:4 )
The words that I speak to you are spirit and they are life (John 6:63). Spiritual realities are activated by words just as instructions are also issued out in the physical realm by words [written or spoken]. The words of Spirits carry in them the potential to make what they are. When God instructed Adam not to eat of a particular tree, that instruction carry in it the capacity to make real whatever God said would be the consequences. God had said that when man eats of the tree he was not supposed to eat, he will certainly die [Genesis 2:17], but the devil through the serpent says that they will not certainly die [anchor verse]. This was a direct contradiction of the words that were spoken by God. And because God’s word is spirit, God didn’t have to be with man at every point in time to be sure he didn’t do what he was not supposed to do. Instead, in the very moment of disobedience the spirit of the word dealt with man. Whenever we obey spiritual principles or instructions, we submit to the power of that word and we can hence reap from the harvest of that instruction. Likewise, disobedience is also a way of breaking from the safe covering of spiritual realities. God’s word is spirit and so we must be careful who we choose to submit to through obedience.
Prayer_Bead: Glorious King, Lover of my soul, spirit and body, thank you for the grace to submit to the spirit of your word. Glory be to your Holy name for the realities of your blessings.
