Finding Truth in a World of Deception: The Purity of God’s Word

Proverbs 30:5
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.

In a world where words seem only to be used as cosmetics in an effort to hide the truth, it is refreshing to know that we have a more sure word (2 Peter 1:19)! It would serve us well to learn early on how devastating it is to trust in vanity. Some live with this attitude, “I know what I believe, so please don’t confuse me with the truth!” However, Jesus taught us that when we know the truth, it’s the truth that will make us free (John 8:32)! The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is not only good news, but it’s the best news ever! Why? Because it first identifies the problem of sin, revealing to all of us the simple truth that we need a Savior, lest we perish in Hell for all of eternity. However, it doesn’t stop there! It offers the remedy for our sins, the cross of Calvary! Jesus said again in John 12:32, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” This was prophetic of His purpose for going to Calvary, to pay the ultimate sacrifice for sins once for all! Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross some 2,000 years ago, and because of the fact that He arose from the grave, victorious over death, hell, and the grave three days afterwards, we have this good news in Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

I remember well the day that God in essence said to me, “I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is, you’re lost in your sins and headed for Hell. The good news is you don’t have to go there! You’re special, and I love you and want to save you!” That day, after hearing the voice of God for the first time in my life, and after hearing the Word of God taught and preached to me, I turned to Christ in repentance of my sins, and He saved me immediately! I am now a child of the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, made possible only by His precious blood He shed for me! Now, there are a whole lot of lies and deceit floating around today, but any time you need truth and clarity, just pick up an old KJ Bible, and you’ll have pure, cool, refreshing truth straight from the mouth of God! EVERY word of God is pure, which means that if God said it, we can take it to the bank and cash in on it! Be not afraid, only believe (Mark 5:36)!
