The Earth Shall Pass Away
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. #Matthew 24:35.

He [#Christ] pointed to the #Scriptures as of unquestionable authority, and we should do the same. The #Bible is to be presented as the word of the infinite #God, as the end of all controversy and the foundation of all #faith.

The infidel Voltaire once boastingly said: “I am weary of hearing people repeat that twelve men established the #Christian #religion. I will prove that one man may suffice to overthrow it.” ... Millions have joined in the war upon the #Bible. But it is so far from being destroyed, that where there were a hundred in Voltaire’s time, there are now ten thousand, yes, a hundred thousand copies of the #Book-of-God. In the words of an early Reformer concerning the Christian church, “The Bible is an anvil that has worn out many hammers.” Saith the Lord, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in #judgment thou shalt condemn.” Isaiah 54:17. 

At this time, before the great final crisis, as before the world’s first destruction, men are absorbed in the pleasures and the pursuits of sense. Engrossed with the seen and transitory, they have lost sight of the unseen and eternal. For the things that perish with the using, they are sacrificing imperishable riches.... From the rise and fall of nations as made plain in the pages of Holy Writ, they need to learn how worthless is mere outward and worldly glory. 

The Word of God is the only steadfast thing our world knows. It is the sure foundation. “Heaven and earth shall pass away,” said #Jesus, “but my words shall not pass away.” 

“The word of God shall stand for ever.” “All his #commandments are sure. They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.” Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 111:7, 8.

Whatever is built upon the authority of man will be overthrown; but that which is founded upon the rock of God’s immutable Word shall stand forever. AMEN
