Proverbs 2:1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
We ought to desire to receive the words of our Father. He loves you enough to make sure they are recorded for you so that you may daily benefit from His wisdom. His Word is magnified above even His name. It is of great importance to Him and therefore should be of greater importance to you. His Word is the provenience or origin of wisdom for us.
His Word is recorded for all of eternity which means it will never cease to be of such great importance. You can bank on God’s Word being absolute truth. I have always believed and said that if my Father could not preserve His Word just the way He wanted it down through the ages, then He is not the same God who spoke the worlds into existence.
When they say that we have to revise it for today, they are saying that it needs to be made better. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines “revise” as “to review; to re-examine; to look over with care for correction; as, to revise a writing”. The rewrite from the Authorized KJB came about because they said it contained “errors”. That was a ploy of the devil to subtly make miniscule changes that have led to major doctrinal changes.
Today they tell us that we need to update it for the culture to keep up with the changes in the world. That means that it is not good enough. It means that we are trying to keep up with Satan because in my Bible he is the god of this corrupt, sin-cursed world. When you change the Bible you are changing what God decreed for the benevolent good of His children. The devil’s plan: death by a thousand cuts, or changes to the Bible.
God’s Word is inspired which means His Spirit breathed into the souls of men the words that our Father wanted to record. He used the men as they were – their character, personalities, circumstances, environments – but the Spirit gave them the words to speak and to write for you and me. They are words of life, of wisdom, and of power. But they are also words of love; His Word is a letter from Him to every child of His. Receive His Word and receive the benefits of knowing Him on a more personal and a more intimate level as His dear child.
Hiding His Word is allowing it to permeate the deepest recesses of your heart. When you receive His instruction with an open heart you will benefit from it. When you benefit you will automatically store it deep within. Hiding His Word in your heart is to let God’s Word get in and make the proper changes so that you will be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
To receive His Word is to order your life after His Word. You will develop a lifestyle that is more Christ-like. You will become more considerate of what pleases and what displeases your Father. You will desire to please Him and to do whatever He asks of you. You will increase in knowledge and understanding. You will have the discernment to make wise decisions for yourself and your family. You will have the compassion to be a help to those who are in need. You will see a difference in your thinking and thought processes. Selfishness will become a thing of the past as you will tend to put God and others before your own self.
Therefore, if you are going to receive the Word of God and reap the benefits that He intends for you to receive from Him, then you must have a true copy of the true Word of God. After all of my studies and my own personal research, I am convinced that the Authorized KJB is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, absolute, authoritative, accurate Word of Jehovah God preserved in the English language for all time. -Preacher
