“I give you my word.” Have you ever heard that statement? People say it to reassure someone they will do as promised. Or how about the phrase “can I have a word with you?” You know you’re in for more than one word. They want to talk to you about something. The term word is often used to summarize something greater. Two passages of the bible use it in this way.
John 1:1-4 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men.”(NIV) John tells us in later verses that this Word is Jesus.
Revelation 19:11-13 also uses the term word in John’s prophetic vision of Jesus, “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.”
Jesus existed before creation. He was the agent of creation. He will be the agent of God’s judgement. He is the Word of God.
