We must live in a world of constant change
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.
Each of us could specifically name some things that we would like to change as well as some things we wish would remain unaffected by change.
It seems there are those things which will never change, while other things seem to change all too quickly.
We all know what it is to have some things change for the better as well as for the worse.
One thing is certain, sooner or later, things will change.
It becomes all too evident that in this life we have no power to prevent change.
In the face of so many constant changes over which we have no real control, the question naturally arises, is there anything at all that remains constant?
The answer to that question is found in the words of scri pture quoted at the beginning of this article.
"The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. "
There is one thing that does not change and that is the eternal Word of God.
That is the same as saying that the Bible does not change, because the Bible is the Word of God.
The Bible does not merely contain the Word of God, it is the Word of God.
The fact that the Bible is the Word of God means that it is true. It is not only true, it is eternally true.
What the Bible has to say about God is true.
What the Bible has to say about fallen man, sin and redemption is true.
What the Bible has to say about a day of final judgment is also true.
All of the efforts on the part of unregenerate men to deny and or to change the meaning of God’s Word has been to no avail.
His Word stands forever.
According to God’s eternal and infallible Word, He has appointed a final day of judgment.
He has not only chosen the day, He has appointed the judge and the basis on which that judgment will be carried out.
"He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead."
"He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.
" (John 12:48)
God has appointed the day, He has appointed His Son as the judge and He has decreed that His word will be the basis of the final judgment.
Instead of denying God’s Word or trying to change it, let us face His Word with judgment day honesty, now!
