Every Word of God

Thursday, August 11, 2011

And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God” (Luke 4:4 KJV).

The prevailing argument in seminaries and Bible colleges is that God’s thoughts, not His very words, are important. Accordingly, many modern Bibles translate using dynamic equivalence: the translator is bound to convey the overall thought of the verse/passage, but he or she may add words to or remove words from the Bible text!! In the Bible we learn that God is interested in preserving His actual words, not just His thoughts.

The Bible says (Deuteronomy 8:3): “…man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”  Our Lord Jesus Christ quoted this verse in Matthew 4:4 (and also today’s Scripture): “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 Christ said: “…the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). He also said (Matthew 24:35): “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (cf. Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33).

Moses declared to Israel: “These are the words which the LORD hath commanded, that ye should do them” (Exodus 35:1). Joshua 24:26 says, “And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God….” The LORD commanded Israel to memorize and teach their children Hiswords(Deuteronomy 6:6-9).

Proverbs 30:5 says: Every word of God is pure….” We read in 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.” God promised to preserve His pure words forever.

Man lives by “every word of God.” We have “every word of God” preserved in the King James Bible, not in the inferior, depraved modern Bibles.

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!

One thought on “Every Word of God”

  1. Excellent post, Shawn!

    ‘Every’ word in the KJV [Authorized Version/Majority Text] are the word(s) of God, whereas all other corrupted modern bibles [Minority Text] simply contain some of His word(s). (If only saints could/would understand that!)

    Considering God has magnified His Word above all, even His ‘name,’ [Psalm 138:2], it is dishonoring to Him and a disservice to ourselves to settle for that which the Adversary has corrupted by adding and subtracting from It.

    The issue isn’t that the KJV is hard to understand, as it is the Lord that gives understanding [Psalm 119:169; Proverbs 2:1-6; Luke 24:45; 2 Timothy 2:7; 1 John 5:20]. Rather, it is a heart issue, a matter of unbelief—that of not believing the words on the page…“In whom the god of this world have BLINDED the minds [hearts] of them which BELIEVE NOT…” [2 Corinthians 4:4]
