The Word: Expression of Divine Intent

John 1:1-5   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.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There are principles in life, if followed, that will produce success and good fruit.  These successes may not be immediate but they will surely come.  Those who pursue truth will be guided by it and will successfully navigate the minefields of lies with minimal negative impact.  The truth is simple.  You don’t have to write anything down in order to remember what you told another person.  Simply speak the truth.  Those who conjure up lies and innuendos must make a mental note of what they said and to whom they said it.

Words project intent.  Intent may be redirected but consistent intent brings forth actions: good or bad.  Divine Intent brings forth light and life (zoe).  As we study the Holy Scripture we consume the darkness in our minds with the light of the Word.  The result is harmony with Divine Intent.  The Divine Intent we reject brings forth death and destruction.  When these destructive interferences (darkness) prevail, our bodies respond with sickness and disease.  We seek out the world’s intent and compound our problem.  The goal of the world is to extract your money from you.  Cancer is a multi-billion dollar business and its cures focus on cutting on your body, burning your body, or poisoning your body to achieve results.  If your body was designed to live forever, why do we need surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy to add a few years to our lives?

Jesus was the Word manifested on earth.  He manifested and spoke Divine Intent.

John 1:15   And the Word became 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.

Jesus was full of grace and truth and as we study His words and actions, we behold Divine Intent.  Jesus healed people and made no one sick.  He consistently healed people of their sicknesses and disease.  He had compassion on His fellow man and carried out Divine intent precisely as He heard from Our Heavenly Father.  Jesus manifested the Love of THE FATHER in all His actions and words and if we want to pursue an abundant life, we should focus on Divine Intent, not man’s intent.  Our focus should be on innocent perception, Love, grace, mercy, the fruit of the Holy Spirit…  Everything Jesus said and did was through a motivation of Love.  For GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON.  This was done with Divine Intent.  We should be pursuing HIS intent through the eyes of Love.
