Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the LORD came to me saying,
Is Jesus not “the word of the Lord” to us? See what the apostle John says about Him:
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
So, yes, Jesus is “the word” of the Lord to us. John also said this:
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
And so we can see that Jesus is “the word of the Lord” come to us. And that word says:
1 Peter 1:16 …”YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.”
Therefore, let us heed the word of the Lord…and be holy unto Him.
