The Word Of God Endures Eternally

There are many different takes on the Word of God today. Many different doctrines tend to undermine the purpose of the Word, breeding doubt regarding its authenticity and truth, but if you are steadfast in your faith, none will succeed. When a person has first accepted Christ as their personal Savior, it is simple to teach them that the Bible is, in fact, the Word of our sovereign God and that it is perfect in its teachings and purpose. This is likely because it was the truth of the Word that led them to accept Christ’s sacrifice in the first place. After all, was it not true, how can they truly experience salvation?

However, throughout the passage of our lifetime, we will meet many people who will readily challenge the word of God. Non-believers who teach in our schools and colleges will ridicule the book and preach alternatives in the quest to sound knowledgeable. We can expect such behavior from one, who is lost, but the believers among us should be on their guard, after all, we have found the Lord and we have embraced his teachings.

Sadly, a percentage of young students who attend Christian schools and universities will fare a little better. Some learned people who refer to themselves as bible teachers will endeavor to shake other people’s faith by stating that the original word of God means something quite different. The same teachers will insist that other phrases offer a better translation, in other words, they feel their word is God. However, in reality, such talk is foreign to the Apostles and other leading bible characters. They boldly proclaim that the word of God is good and confidently say “Thus said the Lord”.

Read Psalm 12:6-7 to find the main reason for their confidence. The words in the psalm clearly state that the Lord’s words are pure. Note the psalm doesn’t talk about the Word of God in general, it means exactly what it says, the Lord’s words are truthful and they will be preserved forever.

It truly does not matter what period of history we live in, we will always be able to have access to the “words” of God. Please take heart, when some supposed bible teacher tries to shake your confidence in the bible and specifically in the words contained within. God has promised that He will preserve His words and that you always have the chance to get a hold of them. You can trust your bible because of this promise, understanding that the actual words themselves and not just the message are preserved.

It is important to remember that the words of the bible were derived from the Holy Spirit, a divine being who works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. The Holy Spirit worked tirelessly to convert people and introduce them to Christ. Read through Jeremiah 1:1, a heart-warming scripture concerning the word of God’s steadfastness, reliability, and trustworthiness. Read these great words and note God clearly states that he is watching over us to see that his word is fulfilled.

If you are a believer in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, you should be aware of the fact that the Bible is the word of God revealed to men by the Holy Spirit. The purpose of that word is to help us know who God is and how we can live a life pleasing to him trough holiness. Because the word is both true and infallible, we can put our faith in God alone.

How To Successful Resist Temptation

As those who are following Christ, it’s quite obvious that we find ourselves within a huge battle with Satan, sin, along with our carnal nature. Keep in mind, one thing that we have to be very cautious about is temptation due to the fact that it’s the pathway that leads people to sin. The enemy knows that quite well, and he has been using it as a very potent tool for years since after mankind’s inception within the Garden of Eden in order to bring all types of destruction to the human race.

Another important thing to realize is that temptation is not a sin, the issue lies with yielding to temptation. The bottom line is that temptation is unable to bring anyone into sin by itself without that person being willing to succumb to it. As a result, this is a critical area that really needs to be paid attention to in order for us to be able to deal wisely with any temptation Satan is throwing at us.

Dealing With Temptation Requires An Attitude of Pleasing And Glorying God.

The Christian life revolves around both pleasing and glorifying God by our lifestyles (1 Peter 2:12, 1 Corinthians 6:20). That’s all God really needs out of us in response to what He’s accomplished for us through His only Son Christ Jesus. Bear in mind, it’s important for people to realize that the devil wants to be gloried just as God wants to be glorified. He knows our weaknesses’ areas; thus, he’s an accomplished opportunist, it means that it’s what he will use in order to tempt us to do things that will bring shame and reproach to the name of God.

However, if we’ve adopted an attitude of pleasing and glorifying God through the means of dying to self daily by ceasing to follow the impulsive desires of the flesh, then we grant God the full right for Him to work through us in a powerful way. Submitting to God also means being empowered by God, so that we can resist Satan along with his field of temptation and his influence that he’s unleashing on us. We should be living for Jesus alone.

Succumbing to Temptation is Considered as a Victory to Satan.

Satan’s main goal with temptation is to lure us to submit to his deceptive and destructive ways. Consequently, every time we let him entice us into sin, that’s equivalent to us letting him be victorious over us. The best method of dealing with that is to see temptation along with sin as what they are. Their ultimate purpose of the enemy with temptation and sin is not only to lead us away from God but to keep us in bondage indefinitely.

Resisting Temptation is Considered as a Victory to Christ.

Conversely, whenever we choose to depend upon the Holy Spirit so that He can empower us concerning confronting temptation in order for us to live as God wants us to live, that brings honor and glory to Christ. The main reason is that we’re willing to align our lives in such a manner that’s consistent with what His death has accomplished for us. God’s will is for us to live both an abundant and victorious life through Christ. By our bold resistance to Satan, we’re telling God what’s important for us is living up to His own holiness’ standard.

Lastly, God has made us such a magnificent promise in His Word that we have to lay a strong hold on which is found in (1 Corinthians 10:13). It says that He’ll never allow us to be tempted in such a way that goes beyond our ability to cope with it, and when we find ourselves being caught up by temptation, He’ll strengthen us, so that we can endure it till we make out. But, since God does His works through the person of the Holy Spirit, that can only happen if we take our responsibility by depending on the Holy Spirit.

Your strength is determined by our level of faith in God, that’s the reason why we have to Commit your plans to the Lord.
