Eternally True

“All Your words are true; all Your righteous laws are eternal.” -Psalm 119:160

This is a verse which varies significantly in different Bible translations. Yet I found those differences to enhance its meaning. The entirety, the sum, the essence, of God’s truth has been true since the beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth […] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning” (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-2). Scripture affirms Scripture as we see it here. Psalm 119, Genesis 1 and John 1 exalt God’s eternality, the validity of His words, and Christ as our Living Word. The theme of everlasting truth was previously echoed in vv.151-152 of Psalm 119. We know God’s word to be true and trustworthy because He is. His laws are eternal because God is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. He is complete in Himself, needing nothing.

We are but a vapor but God’s Word will remain. The trees will wither, the beauty of flowers fades, men live and die, but the Word of God stands forever. Those in Christ Jesus will also live forever, reigning as co-heirs with King Jesus. Through Christ we are given eternal worth and purpose. Jesus has perfectly fulfilled what we were unable to keep in God’s holy laws. Our mortal bodies on earth will fail us, but God promises immortal, glorified bodies for His saints which will never wear out. He will make good on His promises just as He has before. He is faithful. What better example do we have than the fulfilled promise of Jesus the Messiah? Make no mistake, this same Lord Jesus who came to earth, will come again. When He returns, it will be in His splendor, ruling in truth and grace forever.

Grace upon grace,


Growing deeper: Isaiah 40:6-8; Psalm 39:4-7; 90; Revelation 22
