CHRIST THE WORD

In the beginning when the Earth was void and without form
God spoke His word and framed the world
Changing the face of the deep
Creating life, plants, animals and man
Until the word said "IT IS FINISHED"
And it was, it was good, it was perfect
Then he blessed the seventh day
He rested and enjoyed the work He had completed
The Word proceeded forth from His mouth
It had accomplished His design
The work of Christ, the Word, forming the earth was complete

The disciples cried out, “Do you not care if we perish?”
He stood and said 'PEACE BE STILL' and all was calm
The tempest that crashed against the boat threatening their very lives
Halted at His word
The waves that rocked the boat and tossed it to and fro
Settled at His word
The ripples that lapped and splashed against the side of the boat
Ceased at His word
All was quiet - Silence - not a breath of wind, not a sound or voice.
The Word had accomplished that to which it was sent
And had not returned void
The work of Christ, the Word, stilling the storm was complete

When Christ was here on Earth He "must be about His Fathers business''
He raised the dead, healed the broken hearted
Liberated the bruised, recovered the sight to the blind
Preached the gospel to the poor, deliverance to the captives
The acceptable year of the Lord
He was the bread of Life, the living water
Yet He prayed in anguish "Let this cup pass from Me"
He resigned Himself to death, lifted up on a cross
With His last fleeting breath cried 'IT IS FINISHED'
And it was, the Word had accomplished that to which it was sent
He was not returning void
The work of Christ, the Word on Earth, was complete.

When the Holy Spirit fell on the one hundred and twenty
As cloven tongues of fire on each of their heads
The Word had come again to be in his people, as He said
They preach the Word, granting grace to the hearers
They heal the sick by the Word, lifting up the fallen
They demonstrate faith hope and love through the Word
They go places led by the Word, touching every corner of the globe
They became the Word on earth, His written epistle manifested in flesh
Then the Word shall return as a bride adorned for her husband
It is not returning void
The Word has accomplished that to which it was sent
And the two shall become one flesh as it was in the beginning

References:
Joh 1:1
  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Heb 11:3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Eph 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
1Pe 1:20  Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
Rev 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Joh 6:37  All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
Eph 1:4  According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Joh 14:18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Isa 55:10  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 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.
1Co 15:21  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
1Pe 1:10  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

2Co 3:2 You are our letter, having been inscribed in our hearts, being known and being read by all men, it having been made plain that you are Christ's letter, served by us, not having been inscribed by ink, but by the Spirit of the living God, not in tablets of stone, but in fleshly tablets of the heart.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
