All Scripture is the very breath of God

All Scripture is the very breath of God,
And by His Spirit into words was breathed;
By godly men the words were written down,
With all God’s fulness unto man bequeathed.
It is the breath of God as light to man,
With rays divine man to illuminate;
It shines in darkness and to man reveals
What is his truest need and actual state.
It is the breath of God as life to man,
Nature divine to man it doth impart;
The dead it quickens and regenerates,
Transforms the soul-life and renews the heart.
It is the breath of God as wisdom too,
Knowledge divine to man it has to teach;
Th’ eternal purpose of the Lord it shows,
And leadeth man God’s final goal to reach.
It is the breath of God as strength to man,
Power divine to man it doth transmit,
Strength’ning the weak, empowering the faint,
Enabling man God’s purpose full to fit.
It is the breath of God for us to breathe,
That as our portion God we may enjoy;
Receiving it by spirits exercised,
Our need is met, His wealth we may employ.

Amen! All Scripture is God's very breath, breathe to us into words by His Spirit.

The breath of God is light to man to illuminate him; and it shines in the darkness to reveal to man what his true need and actual state is.

The breath of God is life to man to impart the divine nature into him; and it quickens and regenerates the dead, transforms the soul-life and renews the heart.

The breath of God is wisdom too, to teach man the divine knowledge; and it shows the Lord's eternal purpose, to lead man to reach God's final goal.

The breath of God is strength to man, to transmit the divine power to him; and it strengthens the weak and empowers the faint, to enable man fully fit for God's purpose.

The breath of God is for us to breathe, that we may enjoy God as our portion; and we receive Him by exercising our spirit, to avail of God's wealth and meet our need.
