Question: Is there a True Word of God?

    Thought: If a Preacher is to preach the Word, which one of the translated Bibles is the Word?

    We at Grace Bible Study use only the King James Bible.

    I. God's Inspiration

    A.II Timothy 3:16 Of God B. II Timothy 3:17 May be Perfect

    NOTE: Man of God throughly furnished by scriptures, not education.

    II. No prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    A. II Peter 1:20 Knowing this

    B. II Timothy 4:2 "The Word"

    NOTE: Preach the Word--Not translate it

    III. Is the Inspiration of God's Word to be changed or added to?

    A. Deuteronomy 4:2 NOT TO ADD UNTO

    B. Revelation 22:19 NOT TO TAKE AWAY

    IV. The Pure Words of God

    V. The Word of God is Holy

    VI. The Word of God is Right

    B. Numbers 23:19 No Lie

    C. Romans 3:4 God is Truth

    VII. The Word of God is Tried

    C. Romans 3:4 God's Word can be judged

    VIII. The Word of God is Complete

    A. Proverbs 30:5 A Shield

    B. Revelation 22:18-19 Take Away From

    C. Colossians 1:25 Fulfilled

    D. Psalms 119:89 Settled

    IX. The Word of God is Preserved

    NOTE: If the Word of God is preserved, then we will have it to study.

    X. Why are the things that we have just stud~ed about God's Word important?

    A. Romans 10:17 Faith

    C. II Peter 1:18-19 A more sure Word

    D. Luke 21:33 Word will not pass away

    E. Psalms 117:2 Endureth Forever

    F. Psalms 138:2 Word Above His Name

    G. Isiah 55:11 Will not Return Void

    XI. Do not despise the True Word by rejecting it.

    A. Proverbs 13:13 Despiseth

    B. John 12:4-3 Receive Not

    C. Mark 3:38 Ashamed

    XII. God's Word, The King James Bible, is God's Inspiration Not man's translation.

    Doctrine, Reproof, Correction, Instruction in Righteousness

    NOTE: The natural man cannot see, I Corinthians 2:9, nor reveive, I Corinthians 2:14, then man could not translate.

    B. II Timothy 4:2 As the Word is Preached

    Reprove---God Sees

    Rebuke----God Knows

    Exhort----God Shows

    XIII. The Word of God is to be studied.

    NOTE: Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth--This is a pastor's admonition.

    B. I Thessalonians 4:11 This is a believers admonition.

    The vast majority of religious people do not give God the authority, that He inspired ONE TRUE WORD from the originals. Thus they are never really sure if they have the Word of God or not. They also translate the Word to fit their doctrine. Beware, for God's Word will stand the test and be the judge in the end.

    XIV. What does the King James Bible show us?

    A. Romans 3:10-12 None Righteous--None Good

    B. Galatians 2:16 By Faith of Christ--Not Faith in Christ, we are justified

    C. Romans 3:22 By Faith of Christ--Not Faith in Christ, we can have Righteousness

    D. Ephesians 3:12 By Faith of Christ--Not Faith in Christ, we have access to the Father

    NOTE: All the new translations of men deny the inspiration of the King James Bible in the fact that they change the Faith of Christ (His work) to the Faith in

    Christ 'mans work). Thus they are denying the Faith, I Timothy 4:1-2, departing, not keeping the Faith, II Timothy 4:7, good fight.

    XV. What can we conclude by the scripture themselves?

    A. Matthew 21:42 Read the scriptures

    NOTE: To read the scriptures, God inspired the scriptures to be in English.

    C. John 2:22 The scripture can be remembered and believed

    D. Luke 24:45 The scripture can be understood

    NOTE: II Timothy 2:7 Consider what Paul says and the Lord will give understanding in all things.

    E. Acts 17:2 You can reason with the scripture

    F. Matthew 22-29 You can err not knowing the scriptures

    G. John 13:18 Betrayer--Fulfilled scripture

    John 19:24 Actions

    John 19:28 Accomplished

    Trust Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour in tne fact that He died for all your sins and was buried and rose again for your justification.
