Note: Many people, including myself, have trouble with the theology of a "Word of God" or indeed any thought supporting inerrant direction, active covenental relationship with or guidance authorized/authored by a "Supreme  Reality" or purveyor of "Divine Will" leading mankind towards some predestined destiny as fashioned by some fathomless Plan. Yet, when all things are taken into consideration, however improbable it may seem; or beyond "common sense" or "logical thinking" it may appear; the case for a "Word of God" becomes evermore apparent. Verses from the Bible, Bhagavad-Gita, Zend-Avesta, Quran, Baha'i Writings and more all bear witness to this transcendent Reality; A realm beyond understanding; A realm of the beginning that has no beginning or end that has no end; a product of eternal timeless Grace unbound by human dimensions of time and space; beyond thought of dominion... bringing mystic reunion!

Writings excerpted from Scriptures revered as "Holy" within their respective faiths are presented. It is hoped the reader will hear, perceive and appreciate the interwoven theme of God's Word as revealed to the people of different places and time.

The Word of God has been revoiced through the ages.

"Myriads of mystic tonques find utterance in one speech and myriads of hidden mysteries are revealed in a single melody." Baha'u'llah

"Although I am unborn and My transcendental body never deteriorates, and although I am the Lord of all sentient beings, I still appear in every millennium in My original transcendental form. Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion--at that time I descend Myself. In order to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I advent Myself millennium after millennium." Bhagavad-Gita Chap 4:6-8 Hindu:

Consider the statement recorded in the first chapter of the book of John: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." This statement is brief but replete with the greatest meanings. Its applications are illimitable and beyond the power of books or words to contain and express. Heretofore the doctors of theology have not expounded it but have restricted it to Jesus as "the Word made flesh," the separation of Jesus from God, the Father, and His descent upon the earth. In this way the individualized separation of the godhead came to be taught.

The essential oneness of Father, Son and Spirit has many meanings and constitutes the foundation of Christianity. Today we will merely give a synopsis of explanation. Why was Jesus the Word? ->

In the universe of creation all phenomenal beings are as letters. Letters in themselves are meaningless and express nothing of thought or ideal -- as, for instance, a, b, etc. Likewise, all phenomenal beings are without independent meaning. But a word is composed of letters and has independent sense and meaning. Therefore, as Christ conveyed the perfect meaning of divine reality and embodied independent significance, He was the Word. He was as the station of reality compared to the station of metaphor. There is no intrinsic meaning in the leaves of a book, but the thought they convey leads you to reflect upon reality. The reality of Jesus was the perfect meaning, the Christhood in Him which in the Holy Books is symbolized as the Word.

"The Word was with God." The Christhood means not the body of Jesus but the perfection of divine virtues manifest in Him. Therefore, it is written, "He is God." This does not imply separation from God, even as it is not possible to separate the rays of the sun from the sun.

The reality of Christ was the embodiment of divine virtues and attributes of God. For in Divinity there is no duality. All adjectives, nouns and pronouns in that court of sanctity are one; there is neither multiplicity nor division. The intention of this explanation is to show that the Words of God have innumerable significances and mysteries of meanings -- each one a thousand and more. (Abdu'l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 154)

Each Messenger has experienced a life changing awareness or"point of revelation" signaling the utterance of inspired knowledge given from a source other than himself : see http://onenessbecomesus.com/Faithslisting.html
