This week it has been on my heart to study more about what the Bible says about God's Word.
In my study I fell upon the following passages that speak so beautifully.....
" Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Matt. 24:35
The Words of our precious Lord are recorded in the Bible. The Bible has withstood the test of time, and the words of our Lord were guarded and preserved for generations. How thankful I am for all those men who guarded God's word!! Not one of the Lord's words will pass away.. that is His promise to us ( red letter in my bible!) .
" Every word of God is pure, He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him." Proverbs 30:5
" 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 for this generation forever." Psalm 12:6
" As for God, His way is perfect, the Word of the Lord is tried. He is a buckler to all them that trust in Him. " 2 Samuel 22:31
" As for God, His way is perfect, the word of the Lord is tried. " Psalm 18:30
" Thy word is very pure; therefore thy servant loveth it." Psalm 119:140
These passages clearly tell us that every one of God's words are pure. For something to be pure it has no blemishes. God's word has not "blemishes" ... no errors, not mistakes or mistranslations. The word of the Lord are as pure as silver that has been tried , purified 7 times!!! Now that is pure! If a piece of silver has been placed thru a hot furnace 7 times, what will the silver be like once it comes out of that furnace???? Is there going to be any blemishes left??? I don't think so. That is how pure God's Word! It is without blemish. The Lord has also promised us that He shall preserve HIS Word forever. That is exactly what God has done! He has truly preserved the Word of God found in the Bible thru generations and it will continue to be preserved! God's word has been tried. It has past the test of time. His promises in His Word of salvation thru Jesus has not been written in vain. The bible has accomplished what God hoped it would -- to bring the message of salvation to a lost and dying world!
As Peter wrote in 2 Peter 1:20-21, scripture did not come from "private" interpretation, by the Holy Ghost.
The Bible is pure, without blemishes and will be preserved forever!
Wow, don't we have an awesome God!
His word truly is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path!
I praise Him for that,
