God is knowledge. God is love. To know the love of God we must know His knowledge.
To know knowledge, we must learn His language. As His knowledge is pure, so must we learn of His pure language. (Zephaniah 3:9)
To learn the language, we learn the alphabet which is made up of letters.
But the letters are not the alphabet and the alphabet is not the language and the language is not the knowledge. Each is a representation portion of the source.
Christ is the word of God because all of these parts are made full through contact with Him. But apart from Him none of these can give expression to the power of His virtue. The love of God is the expression of that power which proceeds forth from His fullness: Christ. To know Him we must be joined to Him and to be joined to Him we must know how.
The letter cannot identify its source but the word carries His Name. Letter is without context for discernment and so does precept upon precept cause one to fall backwards.
"But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken." (Isaiah 28:13)
Isaiah was speaking of those who were trying to learn the word by studying the letters. While the letters came out from the word, they are not the word. To know Him in truth we must be working with His stewardship and Spirit for this is the Word of God.
