Most of the articles on these WebPages have been written by godly men with a central belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. However as with most of us, they may have different beliefs concerning some particular doctrines. These articles have been made available for the purpose of “gleaning the good” where good can be found. I do not necessarily endorse all that is written by others, anymore than I expect others to endorse all that I write.

   Morning Thoughts by Elder Philip Conley

Mark 13:31, "Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away."

This morning, there are things changing, decaying, and dying all around us. People change, friendships die, loved ones pass away, society becomes worse, and civilizations crumble. All down through history,
there have been things that seemed (at the time) like they would stand forever. However, all these things shall pass away now or shortly to come.

However, there is one thing that we can have confidence in that will not pass away. The words of the Lord will endure and stand forever. Everything that He says will always exist and be just as sure tomorrow and forever as it is yesterday and today. If Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, then everything that He says must have the
same enduring fashion.  

Notice that the verse says "words" plural. This means that the Lord is not just talking about the Bible in general. Every dot of every “i” and every cross of every “t” shall be preserved.  Not one jot or tittle shall be removed or fail to exist. This is comforting to God's people today that even with all the destruction and misery that we see, we can rest assured that the promises of God are yea and amen. (II Corinthians 1:20) They do not change, and will never cease in their existence. One comforting stanza from a hymn says, "When change and decay and all around I see, O Thou who changest not abide with me." Amen and amen, even so come quickly Lord Jesus.

In Hope,

Bro Philip
