Logos....or Word ?

Interesting article by
Dr Fredrick David Graves

Version 21 March 2009 7
The Word
“In the beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was with God, and the Logos was God. … And the Logos was made flesh, and dwelt among us …” John 1:1-14 You’ve probably heard that passage written, “In the beginning was the Word, …”, yet the Word used by John in the original Greek text is “Logos”, the Word that made the world and all that’s in it.

What does the Logos have to do with The Gospel Mystery? Everything! Because, the Logos is the mystery … the very Christ of God in Spirit. We will demonstrate this to be true. You can read your own Bible and find it to be true (though it is unlikely any preacher ever taught this to you from the pulpit of one of this age’s commercial churches). The Logos is God’s Great Design! The Logos is Christ Himself ... the Master Plan by which all we know or ever hope to know was fashioned into being and continues to this day according to the will of God the Father.

The Logos formed the stars, directs the planets in their courses, and determines the destiny of both men and nations according to fixed principles that never, ever change. Your Bible says it clearly in that first verse of John’s story of Christ. Read it for yourself! The Logos and God are One! The Word that was made flesh!

The Word that dwells within every soul who is truly saved, truly born again, truly alive and being transformed from within by that same indwelling Word who is Christ in Spirit. Your Bible is not the “Word”.

Those who’ve taught you this so many thousand years are either misled or have some motive to deceive you, to keep the Truth from you, just as Caiaphas the high priest of the Sanhedrin sought 2,000 years ago to put God’s Christ to death at the hands of Pilate.

The truth has been hidden from you but now is revealed to those with ears to hear and the gift of Grace to believe in faith. John tells us, “The Logos was God. The Logos was made flesh. The Logos dwelt among us. But men loved darkness more than the light.” Your Bible is a book that tells you about the Word.

It is not the Word.
Your Bible is not the Logos that is God, the never-changing Force of Good that decides our present based on our past, and the pre-ordains our future based on our present and the decisions we make in the present.

Blair I agree. There are a lot of things that people miss when they clump everything together. A lot of things people do today that the disciples never taught. One example... pleading the blood of Jesus. Why didnt they do it? Its actually based in mysticism.

You know Jody
, we have all been like you in varying degrees. But,The Gospel is simple. Living for Christ and allowing him to live through you is simple. Understanding is simple. The Trinity is simple

Yet man and religion complicate things. The simplicity is just never enough.That is when it becomes heresy. I am curious what you think the believers did when it took the disciples over 30 years bother writing the Gospels? How many years did it take to canonize all of the letters that were decided to be placed in the book called the Bible. Like Blair, I do not diminish the word of God. But God is God.

Whenever I red it, I realize it represents history. It represents covenants and new ones as they happen which do away with the old one. I also realize these letters were written dealing with issues happening in these fellowships. Some things address believers, and some address the unbeliever.

About 10 years ago or so the Holy Spirit asked me to prove what I believed to see if I could find it in the scriptures after the cross. Much changed after the cross. No demons in believers, no curses on believers, tithing was never taught by Jesus or his disciples. Instead the concept of giving and that all we owned is God's. You also do not find confession of sin by born again believers, because they are forgiven. Instead you find repentance spoken of.
