The Word of God

HHM Pastor Jim Parisi 9/22/02

Psalm 119:89-96

89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven. 90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides. 91 They continue this day according to Your ordinances, For all are Your servants. 92 Unless Your law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction. 93 I will never forget Your precepts, For by them You have given me life. 94 I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts. 95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me, But I will consider Your testimonies. 96 I have seen the consummation of all perfection, But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.

Jesus said that the field was the world and that the seed was the Word of God.

It is our responsibility to distribute the Word of God to those who have never heard it.

Why not distribute the works of Shakespeare or some other great author?

Why not distribute the Encyclopedia Britannica or Webster’s


Why the emphasis upon the Word of God?

Briefly this morning I want to share with you three things

About the Word of God that will answer and other questions.

I. The Permanence of the Word of God We read already in . Psalm 119:89 - 96

A. There was never a time when the Word of God did not exist.

1. Jn. 1:1, "In the beginning was The Word, and the Word was

With God, and the Word was God."

2. That means that before the Light of day, there was the

Illumination of the Word.

3. Before the sun, before the Moon, before the stars, before

The mountains, before the Oceans, before the rivers, Streams, and lakes, before the Deserts, before the trees,

Before the animals, before the

Insects, before the fish, Before the fowls of the air,

Before the man, and before the Woman...

4. Before anything was brought

Into existence, there was the

Eternal, inspired, infallible,

Perfect, pure, powerful, Word

Of God!

B. Note the other side of the coin.

1. Mt. 24:35, "Heaven and earth

Shall pass away, but my words

Shall not pass away."

2. after science, philosophy,

Education, governments,

Nations, kingdoms, empires,

Tyrants, dictators, and


3. after theology, biology,


4. After socialism, communism.


5. after gold, silver, rubies,

Diamonds, the dollar, the yen,

The ruble and the shekel...

6. There will be the precious

Living Word of the Living God!

C. the Word of God is permanent!

II. The Person of the Word of God John 5:39 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.

A. The central character of all of

The Word of God is Jesus Christ.

1. The Bible tells of His pre-

Existence in John 1:1

2. The Bible tells of His virgin

Birth in Isaiah 7:14

3. The Bible tells of His atoning

Death in Romans 5:8

4. The Bible tells of His

Victorious resurrection in

Revelation 1:18

5. The Bible tells of His

Triumphant return in Acts 1:11

6. The Bible tells of His Righteous kingdom in

Revelation 20:6

B. Consider this...

1. Open the Bible anywhere, and

It reveals Jesus.

2. Read the Bible anywhere, and

It writes of Jesus.

3. Listen to the Bible anywhere,

In addition, it speaks of Jesus.

4. that is why Philip could take

A portion of Isaiah that the

Ethiopian eunuch was reading

In addition, begin to preach Jesus

Christ to him.

C. The person of the Word is Jesus!

III. The Power of the Word. Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

A. There is great power in this


1. There is political power to

Control nations and people.

2. There is military power to

Destroy armies and strongholds.

3. There is financial power to

Buy, sell, and trade.

B. But the power of the Word of God

Is greater than them all!

1. It is seen by its content...

a. It contains the mind of God

In addition, the ways of man.

b. It contains the doom of

Sinners and the hope of


c. It contains the uncertainty

Of life and the measure of


2. It is seen by its ability...

a. It is able to convict the

Heart, and convert the


b. It is able to conquer the

Will, and capture the


Conclusion: We have spoken of the

Permanence, the person, and the power

Of the Word of God. In closing let ask
