Lesson 10

How a Believer must study the Word Speaking the Word continued

The Warning

V     Proverbs 30:5-6 5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. 6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

 

What a wonderful yet fearful place to come to, we know thy Words Lord that they are not the words of man. Man can never add to nor take away from the Word of God.

The Enduring Word of God

V     Matthew 24:35 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

V     Luke 16:17 17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

V     Isaiah 40:8 8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

V     1 Peter 1:25 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

 

If we are to be used of the Lord we must develop a relationship where we speak the Words that He puts in our mouth.

Diminish not a Word

V     Jeremiah 26:2 Thus saith the LORD; Stand in the court of the LORD'S house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD'S house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:

V     Deuteronomy 4:1-2 Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which the LORD God of your fathers giveth you. Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

V     Deuteronomy 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

V     Revelation 22:19 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.

 

V     Joshua 1:7 7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.

 

V     Read Ezekiel 33:1-9 (the whole chapter if you have time)

 

Homework
