         Literally the verse is saying that inspiration is the process by which the Holy Spirit moved on the writers of Scripture and what they wrote was not their words, but the very Word of God.

        Since the canon of Scripture was completed in 90-95 AD, when John finished the Book of Revelation, God has been speaking to us through the Bible which is His written word. John 1:1, 14 says of Jesus Christ, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. . .And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. " The verse plainly tells us that Jesus is the "Word" and therefore we cannot separate Jesus Christ from the word as He is the word. God says that He is speaking to us today through His the completed and preserved word and Jesus Christ is that word.         In the Old Testament we find examples of how God spoke to man or revealed Himself and His will. We must understand that during the Old Testament the written word of God was not available to most Jews. God during this period spoke to His prophets and they in turn revealed God's word to Israel. For example, Hosea 12:10 says "I have also spoken by the prophets, and have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets." A literal translation of the verse says, "I spoke to the prophets, gave them many visions. God also gave clear instructions concerning how to know if a man was a true prophet of God.
