FAITHFULNESS to the WORD of GOD

 

Matthew 22:29

King James Version

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, 

Ye do err, 

not knowing the scriptures, 

nor the power of God.


From the previous post, through guidance of the Holy Spirit, we were able to establish that:

The WORD of GOD = ETERNAL LIFE

JESUS = ETERNAL LIFE

SCRIPTURE = ETERNAL LIFE


To open our understanding further, let's see what Scripture says of the WORD of GOD.

John 1:1

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.


John 1:14

King James Version

14 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.


Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful, 

and sharper than any twoedged 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.


2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


1 Corinthians 2:10

King James Version

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: 

for the Spirit searcheth all things, 

yea, 

the deep things of God.


John 6:63

King James Version

63 It is the spirit that quickeneth

the flesh profiteth nothing: 

the words that I speak unto you, 

they are spirit, 

and they are life.


1 Corinthians 2:13

King James Version

13 Which things also we speak, 

not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, 

but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; 

comparing spiritual things with spiritual.


Deuteronomy 8:3

King James Version

3 And he humbled thee, 

and suffered thee to hunger, 

and fed thee with manna, 

which thou knewest not, 

neither did thy fathers know; 

that he might make thee know that man 

doth not live by bread only, 

but by every word that proceedeth 

out of the mouth of the Lord 

doth man live.


Matthew 4:4

King James Version

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.


Joshua 1:8

King James Version

8 This book of the law shall not depart 

out of thy mouth; 

but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, 

that thou mayest observe to do 

according to all that is written therein

for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, 

and then thou shalt have good success.


Psalm 18:30-32

King James Version

30 As for God, his way is perfect: 

the word of the Lord is tried: 

he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the Lord? 

or who is a rock save our God?

32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, 

and maketh my way perfect.


Matthew 7:24

King James Version

24 Therefore whosoever heareth 

these sayings of mine, 

and doeth them, 

I will liken him unto a wise man, 

which built his house upon a rock:


Jeremiah 23:29

King James Version

29 Is not my word like as a fire

saith the Lord; 

and like a hammer 

that breaketh the rock in pieces?

not of corruptible seed, 

but of incorruptible, 

by the word of God, 

which liveth and abideth for ever.

as silver tried in a furnace of earth,

converting the soul: 

the testimony of the Lord is sure, 

making wise the simple.

4 For the word of the Lord is right; 

and all his works are done in truth.


Psalm 119:1-8

King James Version

who walk in the law of the Lord.

2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, 

and that seek him with the whole heart.

3 They also do no iniquity: 

they walk in his ways.

4 Thou hast commanded us 

to keep thy precepts diligently.

5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

6 Then shall I not be ashamed, 

when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, 

when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

8 I will keep thy statutes

O forsake me not utterly.


Psalm 119:160

King James Version

160 Thy word is true from the beginning: 

and every one of thy righteous judgments 

endureth for ever.

out of his mouth cometh knowledge 

and understanding.


Jeremiah 15:16

King James Version

16 Thy words were found, 

and I did eat them; 

and thy word was unto me the joy 

and rejoicing of mine heart

for I am called by thy name, 

O Lord God of hosts.


John 8:31-32

King James Version

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews 

which believed on him, 

If ye continue in my word, 

then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, 

and the truth shall make you free.


Luke 24:44-45

44 And he said unto them, 

These are the words which I spake unto you, 

while I was yet with you, 

that all things must be fulfilled

which were written in the law of Moses, 

and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

45 Then opened he their understanding, 

that they might understand the scriptures,

the engrafted word, 

which is able to save your souls.

which I have spoken unto you.

it is the power of God.

without ceasing, 

because, 

when ye received the word of God 

which ye heard of us, 

ye received it not as the word of men, 

but as it is in truth, 

the word of God, 

which effectually worketh also in you 

that believe.


Revelation 1:1-3

King James Version

1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, 

which God gave unto him, 

to shew unto his servants 

things which must shortly come to pass

and he sent and signified it by his angel 

unto his servant John:

2 Who bare record of the word of God, 

and of the testimony of Jesus Christ

and of all things that he saw.

3 Blessed is he that readeth, 

and they that hear the words of this prophecy, 

and keep those things which are written therein: 

for the time is at hand.


Revelation 22:18-19

King James Version

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth 

the words of the prophecy of this book, 

If any man shall add unto these things, 

God shall add unto him the plagues 

that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away 

from the words of the book of this prophecy, 

God shall take away his part 

out of the book of life, 

and out of the holy city, 

and from the things 

which are written in this book.


How, then, can God's WORD not be ETERNAL LIFE?

JESUS is the LIVING WATER and BREAD of LIFE.

GOD is the FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATERS.

Jesus is the WORD.

Jesus is SCRIPTURE.

He must be our daily nourishment.

It's the only way to survive in a dead world.

God's WORD -- Scripture -- must live FOREVER in us.

As born again, I live, and breathe, God's WORD.

Deuteronomy 8:3

King James Version

"...but by every word 

that proceedeth 

out of the mouth 

of the Lord 

doth man live."
