Legos are in the Bible!
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith (3004 λεγω lego leg’-o )
unto them, Have faith in God.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith (3004 λεγω lego leg’-o ) shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
3004 λεγω lego leg’-o
In this verse, we discover that legos are in the Bible. The Words of God, spoken by Jesus, established in the earth, are the building blocks upon which we can build our lives.
In this verse, as we look at the word ‘say’ we see two Greek Words, legos, and epo. Epo is a spoken command, or a word of authority, that must be spoken, announcing and commissioning that which we believe to come to pass.
Yet, I like legos. Yep, in this house, they are everywhere, as the kids love to play with them and build amazingly cool creations our of them.
Notice the way this works: Jesus spoke Mark 11:22-24.
It’s in Red letters see?
In this, one of the the most famous faith Scriptures ever preached, we see something wonderfully incredible happen in the earth.
Let’s see if I can encapsulate in my own words, the way I explained it to my son in family devotions.
Jesus, gave us Legos!
Legos in the kingdom of God, are not little plastic building blocks, like you play with.
Nope, they are building blocks though, invisible, but real.
They are words!
Now in this verse Jesus teaches us about two kinds of words:
The first, is God’s Word, which He says, are legos.
Building blocks upon which we can build our lives. Now in order for these to work, we need to believe them, and speak them ourselves.
How do we speak them? When we fave a mountain of difficulty in our lives, do we simply sing and say, ‘mountain, get outta my way?”.
Nope, we face that mountain square on, with the power of God backing us, and we command it to get out of our way.
Epo, the spoken command of faith. Like when the chicken coop caught fire, and you ran out to that blazing hay, and commanded the fire to go out, and it did! Fire department, couldn’t understand how a blazing fire, on dry hay went out.
Yep! Epo! You commanded it son, and while you stood before a raging blaze, God Almighty breathed upon those flames, and snuffed them out. You screamed at it, and commanded it to go out, in the name of Jesus. God had no choice, He had to back up his Word, with His power, because He cannot lie.
Yet, remember I said that Jesus gave us legos?
Look at verse 23. It says that after we believe and command something, with our words, we shall have whatever WE say! See how legos work in God’s kingdom son? They are very real building blocks, upon which we build our lives. Jesus gives us legos! And they are real, and just like you can build about anything out of legos if you have enough of them, you son, can build anything out of your life, depending upon what you believe from the Word of God, command, and speak into your future. So, use your words carefully, for they are what we build our lives upon.
‘Father, thank You for Your Word. Legos! Wonderful building blocks to build my life upon. Open my eyes to see the wonders of You, in Your Word, and to carefully command and speak those things that need to be built in my life, and command and speak to those things that need to leave my life. In your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen’
