JESUS' WORD IS SCRIPTURE

"...and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said" (John 2:22)

 

For those still having trouble trusting that Jesus is both man and God in one person, this text is just one more of hundreds that prove His divinity. Jesus had pronounced, "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up" (vs 19). That spoke of the temple of His body which He did resurrect by His own power on the third day. When He was risen from the dead the disciples remembered those words and as this text shows, they "believed the Scripture and the word" which He had said. That equates Jesus' word and Scripture as being one and the same. Only God can inspire scripture. Only He can pontificate (I love that word).

 

There are many things Jesus spoke that are not in scripture (John 21:25) but everything recorded is scripture. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." (2 Timothy 3:16) There is life in His every utterance or pronouncement. The ad claims that when E.F. Hutton speaks people listen; well, when Jesus speaks mountains listen, schools of fish, winds, waves, the diseased and even the dead, listen. Everything is animated by His word. To call His words scripture does not merely mean that they have become excerpts in some holy book. The word scripture as we discuss it implies truth, concrete veracity, eternality, infallibility and a power beyond all powers. Jesus declared, "The scripture cannot be broken" (John 10:35), which places it out of reach of intellectual hammers and chisels. Scripture laughs at human wisdom and challenges all hell that would seek to deny or defy it. "Let God be true but every man a liar!" (Romans 3:4)

 

When Jesus spoke storms were calmed, lepers cleansed, madmen were set free and funerals shut down. That is why we must speak what He spoke. Opinion doesn't threaten the devil's kingdom but scripture does. Theory won't birth a revival but scripture will. When a believer boldly declares Jesus' words, I can't see how it is any different than Jesus Himself making the declaration. Jesus cried, "It is written" and ran Satan off the premises. That written word is our spiritual sword and defense as well. Forget what Dr. Whachamacall'im says; repeat what Jesus says. "His word was with power" (Luke 4:32). In your mouth His word still is with power. You're not speaking platitudes, burnt over clichés or a bunch of trite philosophy. You are speaking what is eternal, infallible, unquenchable, incontestable. "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall never pass away" (Matthew 24:35). The creation chapter is built on the fact that "God said, and it was so". Now arm yourself with the same creative authority. "Let the redeemed of the Lord, say so" (Psalm 107:2). If it is so, say so, and when you say so it will be so! Someone quipped, "God said it, I believe it, and that settles it!" As precious as that statement is even it needs whittled down by one clause. God said it; that settles it! Jesus' word is scripture.
