Why has God magnified his word above his name? (Psa 138:2)
Is there a difference between “trembling at God’s word” (Isa 66:2) and “fearing God” (Pro 1:7)?
To Love God means to believe His words (commandments)
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
John 14:15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.
John 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.
John 14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, Lord, how is it that You will reveal Yourself to us and not to the world?
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My Word. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.
John 14:24 He who does not love Me does not keep My Words, and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
To Believe in God is the same as to believe in His word.
There is no distinction between God and his word. Jesus said I am the truth. Rejecting
Christ is rejecting His word; similarly, rejecting His word is rejecting Christ. Anyone
who says he believes Christ but does not believe His words is lying.
John 5:38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.
John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
John 8:31 Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.
John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Colossians 2:3 In whom (Christ) are hid ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
