The Bible is not the Fourth Person of the Godhead

The written word is critical. It identifies the Living Word.

It is the Living Word Whom we are to know.

The written word tells what God said and did in the past [and is prophetic].

But, what is He saying to you and doing in you today?

He can, of course, use the written word to communicate with you, but do you know Him in your spirit?

Do you know Him or only know things about Him?

If you don’t know Him, you’ve missed the point of the written word. You’ve missed a relationship with Him!

” (37) The Father Himself, Who has sent Me, has borne witness of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His shape. (38) And you do not have His word remaining in you, for you do not believe Him Whom He has sent. (39) You search the scriptures, thinking that in them you have eternal life. But, the scriptures testify of Me, (40) And you will not come to Me, that you might have life.” John 5:37-40

“(14) I Am the Good Shepherd, and know My sheep, and am known by them.

(27) My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me:” John 10:14, 27

“And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded to them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.” Luke 24:27

The Word is all about Him!

The Bible is not the Fourth Person of the Godhead – it solely points to Christ, our risen, living Lord Who lives in us!

    • The written word is spirit too, of course – a record of what God has done in manifesting Himself.

      Regarding Hebrews 4:12, whenever the context highlights Him, i.e. His rest, His sight, high priest, etc., we know it’s specifically talking about the Living Word, Christ Himself.

      John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

      “(10) For he who has entered into His rest has also ceased from his own works, as God did from His. (11) Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. (12) For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing in two of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (13) Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are naked and opened to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do. (14) Seeing then that we have a great high priest, Who has passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.” Hebrews 4:9-14
