Dissection #9: Word Play


    But whoso looketh in the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. (James 1:25)

But whosoever leans over the deepest of wells and peers down into the fully aged established rule of God appertaining to the moral and ceremonial customs of the land, and tarries within the bounds of that new covenant, this subject – not a negligent hearer-only of the law, but a poet in the labor of the Word, this man shall be supremely blessed in his actions.

We don’t believe that the Bible here should be construed as some post-modern vessel of performance art, but that the Word is designed by the Holiest of Hands as a a whole-bodied experience, a poem of the highest order and accolades, not up for a prize but given the most solemn praise of praises – the blessing of the Ever-So Almighty.

The Law of Liberty, the full-time dictum of God that we are now heretofore set free of the bondage and penalty of sin, and that we may rejoice in new lives within His supreme word-play, in which His perfect utterance becomes flesh, and our deeds in our fleshly bodies are become anointed by their very emancipation from their previous bonds to the pits of sin.
