IMPARTATION BY THE WORD

John: 6. 63. It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

If it takes the Spirit to quicken, and the word is infused with the same spirit giving power- it therefore means the word of God is a quickening agent. In the word is embedded a catalyst that speeds up the plans and purpose of God in the life of the believer.

One of the modes of impartation is via the prophetic word. The word of God doubles as  the lord Jesus and the Spirit of God. When the word of God is released, there is a release of the Spirit of God making things happen. The word and the Spirit work together because the word of God is Spirit and life (John 6:63). The Spirit of God energizes the word, while the word sets the Spirit in motion. They are interdependent and interwoven, they need themselves to function.

When the Holy Spirit enters into a place, there,s a release of power making the unusual happen. The Holy Spirit can’t step into a place without everyone knowing. Everything was normal at the upper room on the day of Pentecost until the Holy ghost showed up in the form of a mighty rushing wind. The Spirit of God wouldn’t have invaded the upper room without the word of God on that memorable day.

The earth was without form and void until God said,’let there be light’- when the word went forth, light burst forth in the earth. The word of God is life, hence, when the word is released every dead thing or situation comes to life by the power of the Holy Ghost.

We,re blessed by what enters our spirit not what we hear or see.  The following passages further buttresses this assertion:

In Isaiah 9:8, we’re told of how the lord sent a word into Jacob and it lighted upon Israel. The Spirit of the lord entered into Jacob by the spoken word and he became Israel. There was an impartation via the word that was released.

In Ezekiel 2:2, the prophet received an impartation when the word was spoken to him; he exclaimed-the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me and set me upon my feet that I heard him… By a prophetic word the spirit of the lord entered into Ezekiel to empower him. It takes a prophetic word to be energized and set in motion for exploit.

The psalmist declares in Psalm 119:130,’The entrance of your word giveth light and understanding to the simple’.As the word went forth there was direction because the word of God is light according to the gospel of St John. It’s the entrance of the spoken word that gives direction in life.

Lastly, the bible makes us understand in Genesis 2:7,’ God breathed into man and he became a living soul.’ The same word translated breath is also translated as spirit, which we understand to be the word; it therefore means God spoke into man and he became a living soul.

Until something enters into you, nothing changes around you.

Shalom
