Have you ever thought how many words
are in your ball point pen? Or how it’s going to speak your mind as it scribbles out thousands of words your brain
has told it to write? I’ve read that in the early days of this country, Indians called our writing, "the paper
that speaks." And what do yours say. A pen will spill your mind, and it can be mean and spiteful, or a love letter
with a marriage proposal.
Jesus used the written word in many ways. In Matthew 4:8, He said, "It is written, He shall give His angels chare concerning
thee, and in their hands they shall bear thee up." He denounced Pharisees in Matthew 22:29, saying, "Ye do err,
not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God." They had the written word, but didn’t make use of it.
The Apostles considered the Bible as the Word
of God, and so do we. We stand by the words of Isaiah, Jeremiah and other prophets, and we accept every word of Jesus as
the Christ, and we’re saved by believing in Him.
So much has been written, since God allowed Man to come up with an alphabet and began
keeping our history. We’re told that Abraham wrote the first five books of the Bible, the Pentateuch, on Mt. Sinai,
and the time has been calculated as 1962 B.C., but we’re told that the first writing was "Cuneiform," in about
3200 B.C. And earth’s Creation was only about 700 years before that, 3976 B.C.
If we have anything to add, it would be to keep your words sweet,
as you may have to eat them.
