GOD's WORD stands


Psalm 33:6

King James Version

6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; 

and all the host of them 

by the breath of his mouth.

Have we any idea the power of GOD's WORD?

When GOD thinks of something?

Or declares something?

Here's what we found:

Psalm 33:8-9

King James Version

8 Let all the earth fear the Lord: 

let all the inhabitants of the world 

stand in awe of him.

9 For he spake, and it was done; 

he commanded, and it stood fast.

11 The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, 

the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

thy word is settled in heaven.

and every one of thy righteous judgments 

endureth for ever.

but the word of our God 

shall stand for ever.

and from ancient times 

the things that are not yet done, 


My counsel shall stand, 

and I will do all my pleasure:

Isaiah 55:10-11

King James Version

10 For as the rain cometh down, 

and the snow from heaven, 

and returneth not thither, 

but watereth the earth, 

and maketh it bring forth and bud, 

that it may give seed to the sower, 

and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be 

that goeth forth out of my mouth: 

it shall not return unto me void, 

but it shall accomplish that which I please, 

and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Isaiah 59:21

King James Version

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.

Jeremiah 4:27-28

King James Version

27 For thus hath the Lord said, 

The whole land shall be desolate; 

yet will I not make a full end.

28 For this shall the earth mourn, 

and the heavens above be black; 

because I have spoken it, 

I have purposed it, 

and will not repent, 

neither will I turn back from it.

Matthew 24:35

King James Version

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, 

but my words shall not pass away.

1 Peter 1:24-25

King James Version

24 For all flesh is as grass, 

and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. 

The grass withereth, 

and the flower thereof falleth away:

25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. 

And this is the word which by the gospel 

is preached unto you.

GOD's WORD is forever.

GOD's decisions are steady.

He is faithful, loving, and reliable.

He doesn't change.

Malachi 3:6

King James Version

6 For I am the Lord, 

I change not; 

therefore ye sons of Jacob 

are not consumed.

Hebrews 13:8

King James Version

8 Jesus Christ 

the same yesterday, 

and to day, 

and for ever.

Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.

It's been 44 months since GOD made me born again.

In those months, SPIRIT had been teaching me about GOD's WORD.

How I love GOD's law and commands!

Ephesians 6:17

King James Version

17 And take the helmet of salvation, 

and the sword of the Spirit, 

which is the word of God:

Why is the WORD of GOD likened to a sword?

In the first verse, it says it is the "sword of the Spirit".

Who is "Spirit"?

John 14:16-17

King James Version

16 And I will pray the Father, 

and he shall give you another Comforter, 

that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; 

whom the world cannot receive, 

because it seeth him not, 

neither knoweth him: 

but ye know him; 

for he dwelleth with you, 

and shall be in you.

In another verse, it says the WORD of GOD is "sharper than any twoedged sword"

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.

What does the WORD and sword have to do with JESUS?

The Book of Revelation speaks of JESUS this way:

Revelation 1:16

King James Version

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: 

and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: 

and his countenance was as the sun shineth 

in his strength.

Revelation 2:12

King James Version

12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; 

These things saith he 

which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Revelation 2:16

King James Version

16 Repent; 

or else I will come unto thee quickly, 

and will fight against them 

with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 19:13-15

King James Version

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven 

followed him upon white horses, 

clothed in fine linen, 

white and clean.

15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, 

that with it he should smite the nations: 

and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: 

and he treadeth the winepress 

of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Again, we turn back to our original question.

"Why is the WORD of GOD likened to a sword?"

For this simple reason:

Ephesians 6:12

King James Version

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, 

but against principalities, 

against powers, 

against the rulers of the darkness of this world, 

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We need the SPIRIT of GOD, through His WORD -- JESUS -- to conquer evil.

Now you see how POWERFUL the WORD of GOD is.

JESUS just needs to speak things into being.

Psalm 33:9

King James Version

9 For he spake, and it was done; 

he commanded, and it stood fast.

Luke 8:10

King James Version

10 And he said, 

Unto you it is given to know 

the mysteries of the kingdom of God: 

but to others in parables; 

that seeing they might not see, 

and hearing they might not understand.

Ever heard of parables?

Why did JESUS speak in parables?

What was His purpose?

Let JESUS tell us:

Matthew 13:10-17

King James Version

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, 

Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, 

Because it is given unto you 

to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, 

but to them it is not given.

12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, 

and he shall have more abundance: 

but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away 

even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: 

because they seeing see not; 

and hearing they hear not, 

neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, 

which saith, 

By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; 

and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, 

and their ears are dull of hearing, 

and their eyes they have closed; 

lest at any time they should see with their eyes 

and hear with their ears, 

and should understand with their heart, 

and should be converted, 

and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: 

and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, 

That many prophets and righteous men 

have desired to see those things which ye see, 

and have not seen them; 

and to hear those things which ye hear, 

and have not heard them.

Matthew 13:34-35

King James Version

34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude 

in parables; 

and without a parable spake he not unto them:

35 That it might be fulfilled 

which was spoken by the prophet, 


I will open my mouth in parables; 

I will utter things which have been kept secret 

from the foundation of the world.

Why Does JESUS Speak in PARABLES?

What Do the PARABLES of JESUS Mean?

Image: Free Bible Images



Matthew 13:34

King James Version

34 All these things spake Jesus 

unto the multitude in parables; 

and without a parable spake he not unto them:

JESUS loves teaching, through parables.

He has a good reason for doing so.

One parable on the WORD of GOD goes this way:

Luke 8:4-8

King James Version

4 And when much people were gathered together, 

and were come to him out of every city, 

he spake by a parable:

5 A sower went out to sow his seed: 

and as he sowed, 

some fell by the way side; 

and it was trodden down, 

and the fowls of the air devoured it.

6 And some fell upon a rock; 

and as soon as it was sprung up, 

it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

7 And some fell among thorns; 

and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

8 And other fell on good ground, 

and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. 

And when he had said these things, 

he cried, 

He that hath ears to hear, 

let him hear.

The disciples ask for an explanation.

Luke 8:9-10

King James Version

9 And his disciples asked him, saying, 

What might this parable be?

10 And he said, 

Unto you it is given to know 

the mysteries of the kingdom of God: 

but to others in parables; 

that seeing they might not see, 

and hearing they might not understand.

To which, the LORD always graciously explains:

Luke 8:11-15

King James Version

11 Now the parable is this: 

The seed is the word of God.

12 Those by the way side are they that hear; 

then cometh the devil, 

and taketh away the word out of their hearts, 

lest they should believe and be saved.

13 They on the rock are they, which, 

when they hear, receive the word with joy; 

and these have no root, 

which for a while believe, 

and in time of temptation fall away.

14 And that which fell among thorns are they, 


when they have heard, 

go forth, 

and are choked with cares 

and riches and pleasures of this life, 

and bring no fruit to perfection.

15 But that on the good ground are they, 

which in an honest and good heart, 

having heard the word, 

keep it, 

and bring forth fruit with patience.

Don't you love the way the LORD teaches?

I can sit at His feet all day long.

JESUS on the WORD of 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.

What did JESUS say about the WORD of GOD?

What were His commands?

What were His warnings?

Here's what we found:

Matthew 4:3-4

King James Version

3 And when the tempter came to him, 

he said, 

If thou be the Son of God, 

command that these stones be made bread.

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.

Matthew 7:24-29

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:

25 And the rain descended, 

and the floods came, 

and the winds blew, 

and beat upon that house; 

and it fell not: 

for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, 

and doeth them not, 

shall be likened unto a foolish man, 

which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, 

and the floods came, 

and the winds blew, 

and beat upon that house; 

and it fell: 

and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, 

when Jesus had ended these sayings, 

the people were astonished at his doctrine:

29 For he taught them as one having authority, 

and not as the scribes.

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.

Matthew 24:35

King James Version

35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, 

but my words shall not pass away.

Luke 8:20-21

King James Version

20 And it was told him by certain which said, 

Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, 

desiring to see thee.

21 And he answered and said unto them, 

My mother and my brethren are these 

which hear the word of God, 

and do it.

Luke 11:27-28

King James Version

27 And it came to pass, 

as he spake these things, 

a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, 

and said unto him, 

Blessed is the womb that bare thee, 

and the paps which thou hast sucked.

28 But he said, 

Yea rather, 

blessed are they that hear the word of God, 

and keep it.

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.

Now, we know that JESUS' words are full of grace and truth.

We also know that if we continue, keep, and do the commands of the LORD, we shall not fail, nor fall.

For it has been built, and founded, upon a "rock".

Deuteronomy 32:4

King James Version

4 He is the Rock, 

his work is perfect: 

for all his ways are judgment: 

a God of truth and without iniquity, 

just and right is he.

1 Corinthians 10:4

King James Version

4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: 

for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: 

and that Rock was Christ.

JESUS also teaches through parables.

One parable on the WORD can be found on the next post.

JESUS commanded:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

What is the gospel?

What did JESUS want us to believe?

What did He want His apostles to teach?

Apostle Paul speaks of the gospel of JESUS CHRIST here:

1 Corinthians 15:1-2

King James Version

15 Moreover, brethren, 

I declare unto you the gospel 

which I preached unto you, 

which also ye have received, 

and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, 

if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, 

unless ye have believed in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4

King James Version

3 For I delivered unto you first of all 

that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:

1 Corinthians 15:5-8

King James Version

5 And that he was seen of Cephas, 

then of the twelve:

6 After that, 

he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; 

of whom the greater part remain unto this present, 

but some are fallen asleep.

7 After that, he was seen of James; 

then of all the apostles.

8 And last of all he was seen of me also, 

as of one born out of due time.

1 Corinthians 15:20-23

King James Version

20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, 

and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

21 For since by man came death, 

by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

22 For as in Adam all die, 

even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

23 But every man in his own order: 

Christ the firstfruits; 

afterward they that are Christ's 

at his coming.

1 Corinthians 15:24-26

King James Version

24 Then cometh the end, 

when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, 

even the Father; 

when he shall have put down all rule 

and all authority and power.

25 For he must reign, 

till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

1 Corinthians 15:27-28

King James Version

27 For he hath put all things under his feet. 

But when he saith all things are put under him, 

it is manifest that he is excepted, 

which did put all things under him.

28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, 

then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him 

that put all things under him, 

that God may be all in all.

1 Corinthians 15:45

King James Version

45 And so it is written, 

The first man Adam was made a living soul; 

the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:47

King James Version

47 The first man is of the earth, earthy; 

the second man is the Lord from heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:49

King James Version

49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, 

we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

1 Corinthians 15:50

King James Version

50 Now this I say, brethren, 

that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; 

neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54

King James Version

51 Behold, 

I shew you a mystery; 

We shall not all sleep, 

but we shall all be changed,

52 In a moment, 

in the twinkling of an eye, 

at the last trump: 

for the trumpet shall sound, 

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, 

and we shall be changed.

53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, 

and this mortal must put on immortality.

54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, 

and this mortal shall have put on immortality, 

then shall be brought to pass 

the saying that is written, 

Death is swallowed up in victory.

1 Corinthians 15:56-57

King James Version

56 The sting of death is sin; 

and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, 

which giveth us the victory 

through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6

King James Version

5 For we preach not ourselves, 

but Christ Jesus the Lord; 

and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

6 For God, 

who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, 

hath shined in our hearts, 

to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God 

in the face of Jesus Christ.

In light of the gospel, this is what is asked of us:

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father which is in heaven 

is perfect.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Unbelievers are in great danger from our sins, and from the enemy:

John 8:24

King James Version

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, 

should shine unto them.

JESUS commanded His apostles to preach the good news:

Mark 16:15-16

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Go ye into all the world, 

and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.
