How long will God’s word last? Man is about 6000 years old. Noah received a covenant from God about 5000 years ago. God has added to it ever since. Now God says that His word will not disappear until all of it is fulfilled or the end of the age. Basically, everything will be over but the crying. So, what do we do with the word of God? Jesus said, unless your righteousness exceed that of the scribes and pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. So, knowing the word of God isn’t the problem. It is believing it. The devil knows the word of God and fears. When you believe it becomes righteousness. And this is the righteousness God is talking about in Matthew 5. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
