Have you ever wondered if the Bible is reliable source of information? Well it is, and here is why! The Bible was written over a period of at least fifteen centuries. Representing a host of different cultures, customs, and languages. With very dissimilar agenda’s considering the varying times that separated their lives. Yet they were able to put together a prophetic story with stunning accuracy. How? Read On!
This included reasons for errors based upon endless translations through the centuries. Where all of the above complexities could come into play and ruin this great godly road map for humanities long historical prophetic journey. Written by the greatest collection of prophetic historians assembled by none other than the WORD of GOD. Who is this mysterious character?
What is to follow is just a short journey, as to why the WORD of GOD is authentic and therefore dependable. This great manual the scriptures, has the answer for what plagues individuals. And what plagues individuals, dooms the nations. The cure is at our finger tipsÂ Our scriptures, is it a perfect manual? No! It contains oversights, mistakes here and there, but errors distorting the eternal message no! It contains the perfect prescription for what ails humanity and providing the cure. Thus preserving, in our case America.
It started this way, “Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold! I have put my words into your mouth,” Jeremiah 1:9. A theme that runs from Genesis through Revelation. Forever sealing that God would always preserve his word through time. Do not attempt to understand it because it’s beyond human understanding. It’s a supernatural miracle by God into the affairs of his creation. Just like it’s impossible to comprehend the birth of an infant. Which has no life, until God moves upon that child miraculously and breathes the breath of life into it, and then the child becomes a soul. Grounded as truth and not opinion from, Genesis 2:7.
It manifests itself in this manner, “For this cause, also we thank God without ceasing. Because when you received the WORD of GOD which you heard from us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the WORD of GOD which effectually works also in you that believe.” 1 Thessalonians 2:13.
And when the WORD of GOD works effectually in a believer-from the far past-to the present-and well into the future. The authenticity of the WORD of GOD will be preserved, as invincible. It is the eternal promise, as God said to Jeremiah, Behold! I have put my words in your mouth. With that theme continuing, “For the WORD of GOD is living and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword. Piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow. And is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart,” Hebrews 4:12. Slowly, and carefully reread those words because it guarantees the perseverance of the WORD of GOD for all eternity. Because the WORD of God is the blood drenched persona grata of Jesus Christ! (Scriptural texts:Revelation 19:13).
Meaning to keep secure the authenticity and invincibility of the WORD of GOD in spite of the seemingly insurmountable difficulties. As authentic and invincible as the following, “The grass withers, and the flower fads, but the WORD of GOD shall stand forever,” Isaiah 40:8. Because, “In the beginning the WORD of GOD was with GOD and the WORD was GOD,” John 1:1. “And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as the only begotten of the Father, full of truth,” John 1:14. Indissoluble by the very breath of God which dwells in us. Because it is what made us human in the beginning, and continues today as God’s testimony to humanity. It’s His historical documentation for life and time stamped from Genesis 2:7.
One last thought, when God in his providence, withdraws His breath, that is what extinguishes life. Man can’t live on his, or die on his own. That is what is meant by man’s days are numbered from beginning to end, Job 14:5. But there is a future which will be discussed tomorrow.
