I would like to introduce you to my dog, Cody.  Being part Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd, needless to say, Cody is a big dog -- and still a puppy.  The thing about Cody that we could never have prepared ourselves for, is the fact that no matter how hard we have tried, we cannot keep him on a leash.  We were somewhat prepared for the chewing up of our yard furniture, barking all night long at rabbits and the digging of holes in the yard, but we were not prepared for his exceptional ability to break free from his leash!  We have purchased many supposedly infallible leashes and collars, but to no avail -- he just chews or tears them off!  Thankfully we have a fenced in back yard and he is physically contained in that way...but good luck eating your lunch at our picnic table!

​There are those that actually believe that God's Word can be chained, put on a leash, like their yard animal.  What they do not realize is that binding up God's unchanging Word is an absolute impossibility! HIS WORD CANNOT BE CHAINED!  It has stood the test of time. Kings and entire kingdoms have tried to destroy and eradicate it, yet it still remains.  "All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the Word of the Lord endures forever,” I Peter 1:24-25. 

His Word is all-powerful.  His Word is trust-worthy.  His Word is faithful.  His Word is inerrant.  His Word is infallible.  His Word cannot be bound!  "Remember that Jesus Christ, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead according to my gospel, for which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the Word of God is not chained,"  2 Timothy 2:8-9, NKJV.

​​The spirit of this world would like you to believe that God's Word is limited by human intelligence and human strength.  Human philosophy, guided by the spirit of antichrist has belittled the inerrant Word of God to nothing more than a book of history that cannot be trusted as Divine.  This humanistic idea that our Creator's Word is up for debate and alteration is a mockery of our Holy God.  "​For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it,"  Isaiah 55:8-11.

The first thing Satan did in the Garden of Eden was challenge the validity and power of God's Word.  He said to Eve, "Did God really say?" (Genesis 3)  Causing Eve to challenge the Word of God in her own heart, the first man and woman fell into sin and were separated from their relationship with God.  Satan's strategy is the same today.  If he can cause you to doubt the truth of God's Word then he can rob you of your trust in God -- which in turn, robs you of your relationship with the Almighty who loves you and sent His Son to save your soul! 

So how do we combat this torrential flood of humanism and anti-Christ idealism influenced by Satan concerning our Father's Word?   We just do exactly what Jesus did in His temptation in the wilderness:  REBUKE THE LIES AND ATTEMPTS OF SATAN TO DECEIVE US.  Jesus rebuked Satan and said "IT IS WRITTEN," Matthew 4.   It is time for the church of Jesus Christ to STAND UP AGAINST SATAN AND PROCLAIM THE WORD OF GOD IN DEMONSTRATION AND POWER!  Stop engaging every man's opinion as possible truth.  "Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge,"  Romans 3:4, NIV.  Do not allow the enemies of God to rob you of your faith and trust in God's Word!   Jesus Christ was manifested to destroy the works of the devil.  He gave us authority in His name to trample over the deceitful works of darkness.  

The Psalmist David said, "The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb,"  Psalm 19:7-10.

Pray this prayer with me today:  Precious Heavenly Father, I believe in You and I trust in Your Word.  I believe that your Word is pure and true.  I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and He came to destroy the works of the devil!   In the Name of Jesus,  I rebuke the deceitful lies and attempts of Satan that have warred at my soul.  I command the enemies of God to flee.  I will rise today and overcome the doubt and unbelief that has tried to rob my faith!  I am a believer!  I am an overcomer!

I have read this before and got as much from this second time of reading it as I did the first. I'm going to print it and read it again and again. Thank you Pastor!
