Forms of the Word

God’s Word takes on many different forms in order to equip the student with needed resources. God is interested in our productivity and completion. His Word “throughly furnishe[s] [us] unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:17). Developmental stages of growth demand various forms of the Word. God has provided every needed form for us.

  • Water Form – For initial and continual cleansing and purification (John 15:3; Ephesians 5:26).
  • Light Form – Provides illumination for unbeliever and believer alike (Psalm 119:105, 130).
  • Meat Form – For mature Christians; produces spirituality (1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Hebrews 5:12-14).
  • Sword Form – Serves as a weapon in spiritual warfare (Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12).
  • Milk Form – Produces growth for babes in Christ. It is to be used temporarily in this form (1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Hebrews 5:12-14; 1 Peter 2:2).
  • Seed Form – Reproductive powers live within the Word (Psalms 126:6; Luke 8:11; 1 Peter 1:23).
