His Name

"His name is called, The Word of God." (Rev. 19.13)

In the three fold revelation given to John, Jesus is revealed as
Faithful and True.
The Word of God. 
King of Kings, and Lord of lords.

"Faithful and True," is His nature, this is Who He is.
Because of this, we will never be alone nor forsaken.

The last revelation is of Jesus as "King of Kings, and Lord of Lords."
This is His position, His authority, His place in the universe.
Because of this, His purpose in the lives of His own is certain.

The second name John heard is "The Word of God."
This is His working … the working of His Faithfulness and His Power.
This is the operation of His purpose throughout all the ages.
This is how His faithfulness is shown.
This is how His kingdom is established.

As the Word, He speaks Life where there is death,
Light where there is darkness,
Peace where there is torment,
Strength where there is weakness,

This is the place where our faith must be exercised.
This is the place God would meet with us in all the passing days of our lives.

Just as "the moving finger writes; and having writ, moves on" and cannot be erased, so also, He speaks and that which is spoken is forever.
That which He has spoken must unfailingly come to pass.

Peter speaks  of "exceeding great and precious promises."(2Pet. 1.4)
John, says "Ye are strong, and the Word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome." (1Jn. 2.4)

Agur, after all the proverbs of Solomon, cries out, "What is His Name, and what is His Son's Name?" (Prov 30.4)
Basically he is crying out to know the Answer  to all things existing, and to his own need.

This is the Answer … "His Name is the Word of God."
Here is all sufficiency - for all need, and for all time. 

This is the revelation beyond all this world contains.
     This is the Creative Power which accompanies all our paths.
          This is Life for all our days.
