Scripture is full of references to God instructing His words be recorded for posterity. Moses was told to, “Write this for a memorial in a book,” (Exodus 17:14). The Prophet Jeremiah was commanded to “Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book,” (Jeremiah 30:2). The Apostle John was told to “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.” (Revelation 1:19). To read the Bible is to read God’s Own Words written for every generation to read and learn of Him, and know Him.

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth;

but the Word of our God shall stand for ever.”

Isaiah 40:8
