“The sword of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD of God” (Eph 6:17).

(You can use your Bible concordance to find many other verses that show the harmony of the Word of God and the Spirit of God.)

The Holy Spirit was the inspiration for the writing of the Word of God, and His words and works will always agree with what is already in the Bible.

The Holy Spirit and the Bible are in complete unity. It is good and right to be people who fully embrace and live in the power of BOTH the Spirit and the Word!

We have learned that the Bible is the revelation of God Himself to mankind.  But is it “the Word of God”?  And what does that phrase really mean?

Let us examine these questions and more in the next chapter.
