This teaching is about believing God’s Word over the facts or sense knowledge because God’s Word has been put to the test and has come up pure every time. Nothing has been tried like God’s Word has been tried. We should prove everything according to the Word of God. If it is not of God, then throw it in the trash. The Word of God is pure gold, and we do not need to keep the mostly pure around. A record about Ahab receiving counsel is shared to demonstrate that if something contradicts the Word, even if the vast majority of people agree, then it cannot be true. The Word is more true than any circumstances we have been in or will be in. Nothing shall be impossible with God so don’t let the devil tell you what is possible. Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are shown as examples of people who walked with God even when they faced certain death. God comes through even if the facts get worse because the Word stays pure. We find out what we’re made of when the heat gets turned up. If what we believe is God’s Word, then it is going to be found pure.
