10/11/17 The Only Absolutely Trustworthy Book
“Too often my children will not believe My Word because the circumstances around them deny its truth. Too often they would rather believe lies that are mere foolishness than what I have proven to be true over and over again. When I remove the ordinary and allow the supernatural to be predominant, My truth will be the only source of comfort and logic. Lies will be so prevalent that only those founded in the unmovable and eternal truth as I see it will not be taken in. When everything that is familiar falls away, only one thing will remain - My truth.”
John 8:31b-32 AMP
31b) …If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples.
32) And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.
John 17:17 AMP
Sanctify them [purify, consecrate, separate them for Yourself, make them holy] by Truth; Your Word is Truth.
I Th. 2:13 NIV
And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.
II Tim. 2:15 AMP
Study and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved (tested by trial), a workman who has no cause to be ashamed, correctly analyzing and accurately dividing [rightly handling and skillfully teaching] the Word of Truth.
Ja 1:21 NIV
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
Jude 24-25 AMP
24) Now to Him Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]—
25) To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).
The Word of God is absolutely true. There is no falsehood in it. Everything that is accurately said about God, the way He functions, and who He really is can be found there. You can build your eternal existence on the foundation of God’s Word. The Bible is the only book that is absolutely trustworthy. In fact, if we base any decision, choice, or determination of any kind on anything that is outside the Word of God, we are in danger. The world is passing away, but the Word of God will remain.
As things come to a close, the Bible says that lies will prevail in the world. In fact, there will be so many lies, that it will almost be impossible to know what truth is unless you have become so familiar with God’s truth that the lies are evident.
If we look around, even now, truth has become relative. Most areas in life are no longer black and white; they have melted into some kind of dull gray. In many cases, people base their life decisions on a mixture of half-truths, conjecture, traditions, and flat-out lies. It’s only going to get worse.
If we, as Christians, don’t determine in our hearts to start believing what is said in the Word of God - about Him, His promises, and His plans - as absolute, unfailing truth, we will soon find ourselves not only deceived by what is only supposedly true; but we will be incapable of leading others to the truth.
Weld Your Word in my heart, Lord,
