“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
In today’s verse, Jesus promises us that His Words are eternal. This means not one jot, not one tittle, not one mark, not one abbreviation point…not one word will pass away!
God’s Word is infallible. In all that it teaches and all it affirms, it is correct and right and perfect. And the Word of God is inerrant. That is, there are no errors in the Scripture. Can you imagine a perfect, pure God breathing out error? Certainly not! God's Word is accurate!
Now, when people deny the authority of Scripture, they deny the authority of God. It’s as simple as that. In effect, when they deny or distort the authority of Scripture, they deny and blaspheme the work of the Holy Spirit in giving us the Scriptures.
They even defame the deity of Jesus Christ, who is described in the Bible as the incarnate Word of God. His very name is the Word of God! And while the Word of God and the God of the Word are not identical, they are inseparable. You cannot separate God from His Word. Even Jesus came believing and teaching and preaching the Word of God, affirming the Old Testament and proclaiming the new and the living way of salvation.
That’s why you can trust the Bible through and through. From the very beginning of Genesis when God created the heavens and the earth until the closing chapters of the Revelation, we have the Word of God…consistent, clear, and concise…telling us how to go to heaven, how to know Jesus Christ, how to experience eternal life, how to know and worship God.
This is the Word of God! And you can trust it as your ultimate authority of life and truth!
you can trust the Bible through and through as it is the very word of god.
