Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of Me. (Psalm 40:7, KJV)

We Can Believe In, And Trust, What God Has Said In Holy Scripture

In these difficult times, what an amazing thing it is for the Christian to know, with certainty, that the Bible truly has been written as history—His-story. With so much talk these past years about so-called postmodernism, and an alleged shift in our capricious culture, it’s comforting for us to know that God’s Word is unchanging. The Bible tells us — Your Word, O LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens (Psalm 119:89).

So you need not worry as you see more and more leaders within the egregiously Ecumenical Church of Deceit, the duplicitous daughter of the long apostate Roman Catholic Church currently swallowing up mainstream evangelicalism, abandoning Sola Scriptura. The fact is, in their fruitless efforts to “reach” people with their seeker-sensitive gospels, and for the spiritual “buzz” of Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism, they have rejected the all-sufficiency of the Bible.

Yes, there is a growing apostasy, but we have the absolute truth and security of our Lord’s Word in our text — “in the volume of the book it is written of Me.Furthermore, we can see this truth in Luke’s account of our Risen Lord when Jesus is teaching two of his disciples on the road to Emmaus. We read — Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures (Luke 24:27, NASB).

And we must also keep in mind here that Luke is writing from firsthand information – since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you (Luke 1:3). So you see, this is an historical account; unfortunately today too often people aren’t approaching the text of the Bible in this way; but we really should where applicable, and especially in times like this of such impending darkness.

And if you’re feeling a bit troubled right now, let me offer you these words of comfort; not only does the Bible tell us of Christ’s glorious Resurrection from the dead, but we also have the assurance that Jesus is coming back for us as well. You see another eyewitness account by the Apostle John informs us that the Master said:

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. In My Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am” (John 14:1-3).

So dear Christian, perhaps you feel that maybe you haven’t been giving as much of yourself to the Lord lately as you should be, or maybe you have never really trusted completely in the absolute fact that Jesus Christ died in place of His Church literally bearing the wrath of God that would have been ours. Well, today, if you hear His Voice within mine, then I exhort you: Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge Him. As surely as the sun rises, He will appear; He will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth (Hosea 6:3).

And remember Jesus Himself tells us — “Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this Book”… He which testifieth these things saith, “Surely I come quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. (Revelation 22:7, 20)
