The Word of the Lord Endures Forever

From The Heart

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.  Psalms 138:2 KJV


God exalts His Word above His own Name! Jesus is the Name above all names. The Word is exalted above the Name of Jesus. Sinners have no respect for the Word of God and, unfortunately, today there are many Christians – even preachers - who do not have the respect for the Word of God that it deserves.

He who despises the word will be destroyed, But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded. 
Proverbs 13:13 NKJV

Through the generations, whenever people have had no Word or no access to the Word, there has been spiritual darkness and every form of bondage. On the other hand, when people are able to access the Word of God – spiritual awakening and freedom ensues. The Protestant Reformation was sparked by the Bible being translated into the languages of the people. Today we have no lack of Bibles in every translation, but people today don’t seem to be interested in opening it and reading it. They have too many other distractions and entertainments vying for their attention. The devil doesn’t want us to get into the Word or to get it into us, because the Word of God is what defeats him every time!


God’s Word is forever settled and will never pass away:


Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.  Psalms 119:89 KJV

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.  Matthew 24:35 KJV

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.  1 Peter 1:23-25 KJV


Jesus IS the Word:


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.  John 1:1-3 KJV

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.  John 1:14 KJV

And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  Revelation 19:13 KJV


The Word created the universe:


By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.  Psalms 33:6 KJV

Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.  Hebrews 11:3 KJV


The Word is powerful:


For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  Hebrews 4:12 KJV


The Word is trustworthy and proven:


Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. They continue this day according to Your ordinances, For all are Your servants. Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction. I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life.  Psalms 119:89-93 NKJV

As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.  Psalms 18:30 NKJV

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  Psalms 119:105 KJV

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.  John 17:17 KJV


The Word is pure:


Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.  Psalms 119:140 KJV

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.  Proverbs 30:5 KJV


The Word is righteous:
