The Bible teaches that God’s Word is eternal and will never pass away.
For you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. For, “ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER.” And this is the word which was preached to you (1 Pet 1:23; cf. Ps 12:6; 119:89, 152; Isa 40:8; 55:11; Matt 5:18; 24:35; Luke 16:17).
By the act of God, He recorded His revelation through chosen men, without error in the original manuscripts.
So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God (2 Pet 1:19-21).
God produced the Bible through the agency of an authenticated Old Testament prophet or New Testament apostle.
If anyone thinks he is a prophet or spiritual, let him recognize that the things which I write to you are the Lord’s commandment. But if anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. (1 Cor 14:37-38; cf. 1 Cor 2:10-13; Gal 1:8-9; 1 Thess 2:13).
God limited His biblical record by announcing the close of both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book (Rev 22:18-19; cf. Mal 4:4-6).
The Bible speaks today with authority.
“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 5:17-19; cf. John 10:34-35).
The words of Scripture are self-attesting by their obvious truth and claims.
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Tim 3:16).
The Holy Spirit brings his dynamic power to the truth of the Scriptures.
And my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. . . . For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. . . . But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised (1 Cor 2:4-5, 10, 14; cf. 1 Thess 1:5).
God has providentially used men to preserve the Scriptures.
“Take again another scroll and write on it all the former words that were on the first scroll which Jehoiakim the king of Judah burned” (Jer 36:28; cf. Deut 17:18-20; 2 Kings 22:3-18; Ezra 7:14; Matt 22:29-32; John 5:39; Acts 17:2; 2 Tim 3:15).
