Word of His Power

lightGod, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. (Heb 1:1-4 NKJ)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made. (Joh 1:1-3 NKJ)

Priscilla, a Christian, wife of Aquila, a fellow worker with Paul, teacher, church planter and — and author of the Epistle to the Hebrews. In just the first four verses of chapter one, we have this remarkable Christology. In verse 3 we find the Greek word phero, translates as upholding (keep from falling) Christ, the preserver of the universe by the word of power.

Can we imagine that? Very unlikely! When a word comes forth from the mouth of God, it can have creative, destructive, life-changing and a life-giving power behind it.  This world in which we live needs God.  Without that life-giving force, this world will fade away.
