EXPLORING GOD’S WORD 69!


Preparation: Read 2 Thess.2 

Lesson 1. As believers [ sinners saved by God’s grace ] we are to stand firm by the renewing of our minds by God’s word. In the next few weeks we are going to look at some Bible verses on this subject. I trust you will be blessed and encouraged.

a/ We see this in God’s purposes and and ways.  The Bible states this in the following verses.  Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?  Daniel 6:26 I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end.  James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

b/ We are commanded to be steadfastThe Bible states this in the following verses. Philippians 4:Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord. 2 Thess. 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. James 1:But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

c/ Godliness is needed to be steadfast.  We read this in Job 11:13 If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him;14 If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.15 For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be steadfast, and shalt not fear:
