The Bible Stands!!!

Many books today do not last very long; they soon become "outdated". But guess what? There is one Book that will last forever and that is God's Word. Everything in God's Word is pure and without error. Psalm 12:6 says, "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times."
Many people have tried to burn or destroy God's Word but like it says in Matthew 24:35 and Isaiah 40:8, His Word will last forever. Matthew 24:35 "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Isaiah 40:8 "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."
As we approach Thanksgiving, let's thank God that we have a Bible that always has and always will stand forever. I Peter 1:25 "But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you."
"The Bible Stands"
The Bible stands like a rock undaunted
’Mid the raging storms of time;
Its pages burn with the Truth eternal,
And they glow with a light sublime.
The Bible stands like a mountain towering
Far above the works of men;
Its Truth by none ever was refuted,
And destroy it they never can!
The Bible stands and it will forever,
When the world has passed away;
By inspiration it has been given,
All its precepts I will obey.

The Bible stands every test we give it,
For its Author is divine;
By grace alone I expect to live it,
And to prove and make it mine.

The Bible stands though the hills may tumble,
It will firmly stand when the earth shall crumble;
I will plant my feet on its firm foundation,
For the Bible stands.
