SEEN TODAY: In Kaitaia on the main Street.
Seen in Kaitaia today:
“BETTER THAN A THOUSAND HOLLOW WORDS, IS ONE WORD THAT BRINGS PEACE.”
Looking up the word “hollow’ in The Collins Concise Dictionary I find one definition that says, “without substance or validity.”
In my library I have a book called THE GREATEST WORDS EVER SPOKEN by Steven K. Scott.
On the front cover of the book is written, “Everything Jesus said about you, your life and everything else,” and “Over 1,900 statements of Jesus organized under more than 200 topics.” (I received the book as a Giveaway by answering a question, and the cost of the book is about US $25.00.)
In the Gospel of John the Lord Jesus Christ tells us about peace. In John 14:27 he says: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
In the book mentioned above I find this statement of the Lord Jesus Christ under the topics: “The Claims Jesus Made About Himself, The Promises of Christ, The Heart, The World.”
In John 16:33 the Lord Jesus says:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
In the above mentioned book I find this statement of the Lord Jesus Christ under the topics: “The Promises of Christ, The World.”
Hollow words are “without substance or validity,” but not only the words of the Lord Jesus Christ in the BIBLE, but all the words in the BIBLE are valid not only for this age, but for all eternity.
How do I know that?
Because in Matthew 24:35 we read:
“HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL PASS AWAY, BUT MY WORDS WILL NEVER PASS AWAY.”
