Of this we can be confident
10 "Know now that nothing shall fall to the earth of the word of the LORD which the LORD spoke ... ; for the LORD has done what He spoke by His servant ... .” (II Kings 10:10)
The Bible is the Word of God. All that has been written in the Bible is the sure Word of the Living, Triune God. If nothing else in life is sure, of this we can be confident, all that God has recorded in the Bible is true Truth.
When God's prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists and apostles faithfully declare the Word of God, everything that is faithful to the truthfulness of the Bible will come to pass. God says that judgement shall follow un-atoned for sin. However, He also says that Jesus Christ has atoned for all Who look to Him in faith, so that such are set free from the judgements of God as they walk in the light of His Holy Word, and trust in the indwelling power of His Holy Spirit.
We live in days when the Word of God has been displaced from its former place of honour. Sadly, in places that formerly headed the Word of the Lord, men do what is right in their own eyes. Be sure, such neglect of the Word of God will not go unpunished.
On the other hand, the remnant, who continue to trust the Bible to be the Word of the Sovereign God, have this assurance: Know now that nothing shall fall to the earth of the word of the LORD which the LORD spoke ... ; for the LORD has done what He spoke by His servant ... .
