Discussion for Isaiah 40:8

  • Robert Jongenelen for verse 8
    God 's promise to mankind, that His Word is eternal, just as He is. Everything in the universe is His creation He will give life as He pleases. Thank God that He provided life to all that receives His Son Jesus.
  • MockingBird for verse 8
    Well said Eve Smit : The word of the Lord is forever settled in heaven . Man put things in the word of God that is not even from the Word of God : Everything that we say that the word of God says MUST be backed up by the Word of God. Other wise that word will fall to the ground and not produce Fruit !!!!
  • Eve Smit for verse 8
    We all see the grass withering and the flowers fading, what can't physically see is that for ever, God's Word is settled in Heaven. Psalm 119v89. People may try to alter the words and the meanings of the words but it won't alter it in Heaven. Jesus said the word that he had spoken shall judge us in the last day. John 12v48 so it is vital that we maintain the integrity of his word so that no man will be misled and we will be held to account for deliberately misleading others about the doctrines in the bible.
