God’s promise is to give us a perfect Bible and He promised to preserve His words. It’s not the Bible itself, but God’s words in the Bible. When you see the Scriptures in this way, they are even more powerful! The words we read in the King James Bible, that dictate our faith, are words spoken out of God’s very mouth. That’s enough reason to devote our lives to what the Bible says.
Psalm 119:89: “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” Verse 160 reads, “Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.”
Ever since the original, God’s Word has carried on. He has promised to retain it forever.
Here are more verses to commit to memory to help hold firm your belief in the perfect Word of God.
Isaiah 40:8: “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand 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.”
Matthew 24:35: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
1 Peter 1:25: “But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”
Proverbs 30:5-6: “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.”
Every word of God is pure. Not even just the general Word, the Bible, but every word that God has spoken.
Matthew 4:4: “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”
Jesus believed that every word had to stand, because they come out of God’s mouth.
Isaiah 59:21: “As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.”
Matthew 5:18: “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
Deuteronomy 4:2:´” Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.”
Psalm 138:2: “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.”
His words are above His name. Do you think you would change His words? His name is taken with all seriousness by the Jewish people. But God says His words are above His name!
Revelation 22:18-19 shows us a curse. This verse shows the reader the seriousness God has for the preservation of His words. Why do modern Bible translators believe they can play around with God’s words? Wouldn’t you think twice about doing this if it were you?
