8 Different Forms of the word of GOD

There are different forms of the word- different degrees and would impact as such. The word of God, in whatever degree it is expressed, is more powerful than anything you can imagine. It is the word of God that God used to create the whole earth and to establish it. There is nothing that is made or formed that was not made by the word of God, Jesus Himself.  The bible talks about different forms of the word and we should understand the word to the extent that we know when to respond to criticism and when to keep quite. For example, if the food we have been eating has been the “milk of the word” and someone preaches to use with “strong meat of the word”, it might be too hard to swallow but it doesn’t mean they are wrong.

As a church we ought to grow and mature from milk to meat.

According to 1 Peter 2:2 “desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby….” but a contrast of this is seen in Hebrews at 5:12, “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.”

Below is a list of the 6 forms of the word of God with scriptural examples and the bible provides us with much evidence. Spend some time to research the bible on this.

SEVEN FORMS OF THE WORD OF GOD

  • Milk of the Word

    • 1 Corinthians 3:2 “I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.”
    • Hebrew 5:12 “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”

      Honey of the Word

  • Proverbs 21: 14 “My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:”
  • Psalm 81:16 “He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.”
  • Water of the Word

    • Ephesians 5: 26 “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word…”
  • Wine of the Word

    • 1 Timothy 5:23 – Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.

  • Hammer of the Word

    • For this to be activated, you have to keep hitting and attacking the situation over and over. hit the situation with the word constantly just as you would hit a nail into a wood until it is drilled in totally and firmly. Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29)
  • Fire of the Word

    • For our GOD is a consuming Fire – Heberews 12:29
  • Meat of the Word

    • Hebrews at 5:12, “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.”
  • Strong Meat of the Word

    • Hebrews 5:14 “But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
    • Hebrews 5:12 “For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.”
