THE ULTIMATE DIVINE AUTHORITY OF THE BIBLE

March 15

Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. (Mark 13:31)

What this means is that God used man to write the word of God and it says exactly what He wanted said and it will never be able to be removed or destroyed by anyone. What is written below is very important material we need to master because on this rests the credibility and ultimate divine authority of THE BIBLE.

First, we should believe in Verbal Plenary Inspiration – Every word is given to us by God, the inspiration of Scriptures extends to all sixty-six books of the Bible.

Secondly, the inspiration of the Holy Spirit extends to every single word of the original manuscripts, not to just concepts or thoughts but to every single word.

We also know that “Verbal Plenary Inspiration” means “God the Holy Spirit so supernaturally directed the human writers of Scripture that, without waiving their intelligence, their individuality, their personal feelings, their literary style, or any other human factor of expression, His Complete and Clear Message to mankind was recorded with perfect accuracy in the original languages of Scripture: the very words bearing the Authority of Divine Authorship.”

“Verbal” means, “the Bible in its original languages, from first to last, is an exact record of the Mind and Will of God as He intended it to be.”

“Plenary” means, “the entire text of the Bible is equally from God.”

“Inspiration” means “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). Just as God breathed into Adam’s nostrils AFTER MAKING HIS BODY and that made Adam EXHALE and thus become a living soul, so also God’s breathing of the Word into the Scripture writers produced the Scriptures as we have it today, without giving up any of their own personal attributes.
