~Psalm 119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
~Psalm 12:6-7 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Nuggets of Truth
The unbelieving world does not believe that we have God’s Word in writing today. They believe that the Bible has contradictions and are man’s words. However, they are placing God in a box and limiting His power according to their own abilities. The God of creation is quite capable of keeping His Word in writing for His creation. Nothing is too difficult for Him.
~Genesis 18:14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
~Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
Man is ignorant to think that God cannot keep His Word. Man is ignorant to think that God’s Word has been polluted with man’s thoughts. God said in our opening verses that His Word is true – from the very beginning. God’s judgments (including every person’s sins) will endure forever. There is not one person who will go unjudged. God’s Word also says that His words are pure and He shall keep His word and preserve His word forever. Why would God do this?
~Proverbs 22:20-21 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
God has given us His Word as proof of His love for mankind. In the Scriptures are everything we need to live our lives and be drawn to salvation. In the precious pages of the Bible are the words of truth that can lead the lost to salvation. Is it any wonder that the devil is desperately using religion and the lost to corrupt God’s Word? Satan does not want people to know that God has preserved His words through these thousands of years. Satan does not want mankind to read the blessed truths found within its pages.
Refining the Gold
To the true born-again believer, God’s Word must be obeyed and applied to our lives in order for us to better serve Him. Let’s cling to every word from the Blessed Book that He has given to us.
~Deuteronomy 13:4 Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
God has not left us to swim aimlessly in the world’s seas. Instead, He has left us specific instructions which bring truth and peace. What a wonderful God we serve!
