The Relation of the Word to the Cross

That is why the Word is always related to the Cross. The Apostle Paul uses this phrase: "For the word of the cross is... the power of God" (1 Cor. 1:18). It is the power of God. It is the wisdom of God. We know that the word used is the "Logos" of the Cross. The Logos is the combination of a thought and expression in a personal way. It is the Word in a Person, related to the Cross. That is why it is put in this way by the same Holy Spirit of knowledge and understanding, in the book of the Revelation: "And he is arrayed in a garment dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God" (Rev. 19:13). You see the two things, the garment sprinkled with blood, and His name "The Word of God". Then you look into the letter to the Hebrews, and you will remember that in chapter 9:19, you have these words: "...he took the blood of the calves and the goats, with water and scarlet wool and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself, and all the people..." There is the Word and the Blood. It is the Cross that gives the working power to the Word.

   The cross is the point of removal of self centered life into the eternal reality of Christ centered life by the promise of GOD.  Every demand of the flesh and opposition of the devil is met in this hope, and dealt with in the substance of this hope = our Lord Jesus Christ.
