    I believe that when the word of God is speaking that His word is pure : I believe that His word has been put to the test and there is no impurities in it. The word of God is a shield who will put their Trust in Him. The Word of Almighty God will stand . No imp in or from hell will stop it when we put it out there and stand no matter how long it takes.
