The most fundamental truth of scripture is, “Thus saith the LORD.” “Thus saith the LORD” is used over 800 times in scripture. In the beginning, God created all things by His word. Christ, the Living Word, created all things by His spoken word and God told this to us in His written word. God accomplishes His will by His word. “By the Word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth” (Ps. 33:6; Gen. 1; John 1:1-3; Col. 1:16). “8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast” (Ps. 33:8-9). God commands men by His word. The first temptation satan wielded against man in the garden was, “Yea, hath God said…” (Gen. 3)? Christ’s defense against satan in the wilderness was, “It is written…” (Matt. 4:1-10).
