“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” Matthew 24:35
Someone has put it down in this fashion:
Century follows century – there it stands. Empires rise and fall and are forgotten – there it stands. Dynasty
succeeds dynasty – there it stands. Kings are crowned and uncrowned – there it stands. Emperors decree
its extermination- there it stands.
Atheists rail against it- there it stands. Agnostics smile cynically – there it stands. Profane, prayerless
punsters caricature it – there it stands.
Unbelief abandons it-there it stands. Higher critics deny its claim to any inspiration – there it stands. The
flames are kindled about it – there it stands. The tooth of time gnaws but makes no dent in it- there it stands.
Infidels predict its abandonment – there it stands. Modernism tries to explain it away – there it stands.

The Bible tells us of things which are unfailing.
1. The Lords compassion is unfailing: “his compassions fail noi” (Lamentations 3:22). Of the Saviour it is
said: “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them” (Matthew 9:36); “I have
compassion on the multitude, because they… have nothing to eat.” (Mark 8.2).
2. The Lord’s promises are unfailing: “there hath not failed one word of all his good promise” (1 Kings 8:56)
“he is faithful that promised” (Hebrews 10:23).
When Joshua stood beneath life’s setting sun, he said to the children of Israel: “This day I am going the
way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts in all your souls, that not one thing hath filed of all the good
things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing
hath failed thereof (Joshua 23:14).
3. The Lord’s faithfulness is unfailing: “Great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:23); “God is faithful”
Corinthians 10:13); “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it” (I Thessalonians 5:24).
When we falter and fail, the Lord continues to be faithful: “If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful; he
cannot deny himself” (Il Timothy 2:13). “If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments…
my loving kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail” (Psalm 89:31, 33)

MONEY CANT Do Everything
Money, no doubt, is a power; but a power of well-defined and narrow limits. It will purchase plenty, but not peace. It will furnish your table with
luxuries, but not you with an appetite to enjoy them. It will surround your sickbed with physicians, but not restore health to your sickly frame.
It will encompass you with a cloud of flatterers, but never procure you one true friend. It will bribe into silence the tongues of accusing
men, but not an accusing conscience. It will pay debts, but not one of all your debts to the law of God. It will relieve many fears, but not those of guilt-
the terrors that crown the brows of Death. He stands as grim and terrible by the dying bed of wealth as by the pallet of the poorest beggar whom pitiless riches has thrust from her door.
