Ray Bentley - July 21, 2019 - Matthew 21:23-32
The authority of God's Word comes from the author Himself. Jesus taught three parables to demonstrate His authority to the chief priests and elders. Scripture is authoritative. It’s the Word of God. Accept it. Live by it. Answer the devil with it. He cannot answer the written word of God. Two Greek words are used for Word in the Bible. One is Logos, the other is Rhema. Logos is the total eternal counsel of God, Rhema is a spoken Word of God, and that is the word used in Ephesians 6:17 describing the Word as a sword.
