The phrase, “the word of the Lord,” appears 255 times in the Authorized Version. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have been contacted by readers criticizing the fact that I believe that the Bible is the sole authority to the Christian. If God sees fit to put the phrase, “the word of the Lord,” 255 times in the Bible, then it must be important!
I found it interesting that the last time it appears in the Bible is found in 1 Peter. Peter said that God’s Word would endure forever! God doesn’t need man to add it to His Word or even make it better or clearer.
~1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
