"It is written"

The cursory student of the Bible would no doubt be astonished, were he to search the Scriptures deeply enough, to discover how frequently the mandatory, "It is written," precedes the divine decrees set forth therein. From the time when David reassured himself as to his own Christly mission, declaring, "Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God," to the time when Peter declared, "But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy, ... because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy," both prophets and apostles established their statements with the invincible declaration, "It is written."

As all students of the Bible must know, our beloved Master, Christ Jesus, met and mastered subtlest, most insistent temptations of evil with this same unquestionable pronouncement. Even he did not hesitate to strengthen his denials of error and affirmations of truth by declaring the previous establishment of many of them in Scriptural records. In doing this, he not only proved his faith in the word of God, as already proclaimed, but acknowledged that the foundation of his entire work was this same divine word.
