“Is not My word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?”

23 “Am I a God who is near,” declares the Lord,
“And not a God far off?
24 “Can a man hide himself in hiding places
So I do not see him?” declares the Lord.
“Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares the Lord.

25 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy falsely in My name, saying, ‘I had a dream, I had a dream!’  26 How long?  Is there anything in the hearts of the prophets who prophesy falsehood, even these prophets of the deception of their own heart, 27 who intend to make My people forget My name by their dreams which they relate to one another, just as their fathers forgot My name because of Baal?  28 The prophet who has a dream may relate his dream, but let him who has My word speak My word in truth.  What does straw have in common with grain?” declares the Lord.  29 “Is not My word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?  30 Therefore behold, I am against the prophets,” declares the Lord, “who steal My words from each other.  31 Behold, I am against the prophets,” declares the Lord, “who use their tongues and declare, ‘The Lord declares.’  32 Behold, I am against those who have prophesied false dreams,” declares the Lord, “and related them and led My people astray by their falsehoods and reckless boasting;  yet I did not send them or command them, nor do they furnish this people the slightest benefit,” declares the Lord.”  Jeremiah 23:23-32.

“Is not My word like fire?” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer which shatters a rock?”  Verse 29.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  John 1:1. 

“By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And by the breath of His mouth all their host.”  Psalm 33:6.

“So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”  Isaiah 55:11.

For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”  Hebrews 4:12.

for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.  For,

All flesh is like grass,
And all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
And the flower falls off,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.”

And this is the word which was preached to you.”  1 Peter 1:23-25.
