Forever, O LORD,
Your word is settled in heaven.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
You established the earth, and it abides.
They continue this day according to Your ordinances,
For all are Your servants.
Unless Your law had been my delight,
I would then have perished in my affliction.
I will never forget Your precepts,
For by them You have given me life.
I am Yours, save me;
For I have sought Your precepts.
The wicked wait for me to destroy me,
But I will consider Your testimonies.
I have seen the consummation of all perfection,
But Your commandment is exceedingly broad. Psalm 119:89-96
The twelfth letter and twelfth stanza–with the first line acknowledging the Alpha and Omega–forever.
Our God–who has no beginning and no end–He who established the universe and all within it–came and lived among us on earth–The Living Word–who was from the beginning and will be forever! Hallelujah!
Have we concluded–within ourselves–that God’s Word will NEVER CHANGE because it has been established–FOREVER–in heaven and when the King sets His seal upon a document–nothing and no one can change it?
Considering–how many times–man has attempted to change the intent of God’s Word to pacify themselves or justify sin–we see that before we, who now live, this writer understood that God’s Word has been established in heaven and since none of us can enter in and return, there is no changing of God’s Word that will ever change Him!
Why? Because without God’s Word–the world would have ended long before now. Even though–there are some–who believe in their own arrogance–that people don’t need God–they just need to be good. Without God–or His Word–how would we even define good?
The lawless--those who desire to live without foundational direction and guidelines–live in chaos--always ready to overthrow someone else who gets in their way and even though they may not recognize it–they too–have decreed laws–the survival of the strongest–dictates their ever-changing behaviors.
When we recognize–that no matter what we do–God’s Word will never change, and we can accept our responsibility for living The Word–then shall we know peace on earth. However, our society may never know just how GOOD God is because we have among us those who think they have a right to change what God has established. Of course, they would not know that without Him dwelling within, so if they don’t know Him, why do they think they can change what He says?
As the writer states–he has seen the wicked consumed–we too, shall see the wicked consumed and their consummation will be the end result of their attempt to justify sin by changing God’s Word to accommodate living in opposition to His Word. If they did not believe it was God who said it, they would not make the effort they do to keep changing–they simply want to prove they are superior to God (they say to themselves) and do whatever they want to do, flaunting disobedience and thinking there will be no consequences.
Human nature–ever fickle–always attempts to take control over situations in which they have no true control. Most who complain about the use of the Bible–God’s Word–as a principle to live by–forget that most laws--protecting the innocent and promoting harmony and peace–were established based upon The Word.
Of course, those who are without the Spirit of the Living God residing within them, will never understand this. And since they are governed by flesh, they will continue to think they are wiser than God and create havoc and chaos for all. For if Holy Spirit resided within them, they would know God’s intent for mankind and how He expects us to live, continually–always recognizing His Word–has been established in heaven, forever!
