Jesus Trusted In Holy Scripture, How Can You Afford Not To?

the bible
2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

John 15:10

10 If you keep My commands you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commands and remain in His love.

If Jesus, the Son of the Most God kept the Word of God Himself, how in the world are you not going to keep it?

How can you be a Christian and at the same time confess that the bible contains errors? That makes absolutely no sense.

Either you are 100% committed to Christ or you are not. Jesus knows for certain that His Word cannot be undone, knowing that no one has the power to destroy its content. 

John 10:35

35 If He called those whom the word of God came to ‘gods’—and the Scripture cannot be broken

1 Peter 1:23-25

23 since you have been born again—not of perishable seed but of imperishable—through the living and enduring word of God.

24 For All flesh is like grass,
and all its glory like a flower of the grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls,
25 but the word of the Lord endures forever.

And this is the word that was preached as the gospel to you.

How can you believe that Jesus does not have the power to protect His Word from being corrupted?

Anyone who believes that Scripture has mistakes, in my personal opinion, they are not Christians. 

The Blessings Of Keeping God’s Word

Gods-Word-Our-Foundation

2 Chronicles 17:6

6 His mind rejoiced in the LORD’s ways, and he again removed the high places and Asherah poles from Judah.

The king of Judah, Jehoshaphat loved the Word of God. By reading it, it transformed the king’s character to that of God’s. The Scripture convicted him to further clean up his kingdom from all that which God hates. 

When we read the Bible, it will change us to love the things that Jesus loves and God’s Word will remove any impurities from our lives. The Scripture will start to shape us to be more like Christ and the light in us [the Holy Spirit] will shine brighter for the world to see Jesus in us.

2 Chronicles 17:7-9

7 In the third year of his reign, Jehoshaphat sent his officials—Ben-hail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethanel, and Micaiah—to teach in the cities of Judah. 8 The Levites with them were Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah, and Tob-adonijah; the priests, Elishama and Jehoram, were with these Levites. 9 They taught throughout Judah, having the book of the LORD’s instruction with them. They went throughout the towns of Judah and taught the people.

We see the process of God’s Word in a person’s life. First, the king rejoiced, read, and lived according to God’s Word. It changed him to remove anything in his life and in his kingdom which offended and displeased the LORD. That joy that God puts in our hearts cannot be contained. It spews out of us to others so they like us, could experience the joy of knowing Jesus and His love which would bring them to the knowledge that only through Him can a person find salvation. 

2 Chronicles 17:10-11

10 The terror of the Lord was on all the kingdoms of the lands that surrounded Judah, so they didn’t fight against Jehoshaphat. 11 Some of the Philistines also brought gifts and silver as tribute to Jehoshaphat, and the Arabs brought him flocks: 7,700 rams and 7,700 male goats.

The result of loving and obeying God’s Word is that His blessing will follow you. Even your enemies will become your friends. The LORD will protect and provide you with the things you need. In the midst of a storm, the Word of God is our anchor. It will keep us from being destroyed through false doctrine. 

A Prayer:

O Lord my God, may Your Word be ever on my lips and may You Holy Father strengthen Your children. Give them a desire, hunger, and thirst for Your Holy Word so that they may walk in Your will and praise You, in Jesus name I pray Amen.  

Is The Bible’s Origin Divine Or From Men?

moses-and-the-10-commandments

The origin of Scripture comes from

G O D

Exodus 24:4

And Moses wrote down all the words of the LORD. He rose early the next morning and set up an altar and twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel at the base of the mountain.

Exodus 31:18

When he finished speaking with Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the testimony, stone tablets inscribed by the finger of God.

Exodus 34:27

The LORD also said to Moses, “Write down these words, for I have made a covenant with you and with Israel based on these words.”

Moses wrote down the very words of God while in His presence. 

Why would God write down the ten commandments on stone tablets? It was a picture of the Son of God.

Matthew 21:42

Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is what the Lord has done and it is wonderful in our eyes?

Acts 4:10-11

10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified and whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing here before you healthy. 11 This Jesus is

the stone rejected by you builders,
which has become the cornerstone.

Revelation 19:13

13 He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called the Word of God.

Jesus is called the Word of God and is referred to as The Stone [the cornerstone which the believers are built upon]

When Moses came down the mountain with the stone tablets [the ten commandments] in his hands, it was showing that God was going to send down to earth Jesus Christ the Living Word in the flesh to reveal the Living God to all humanity.

The only one who attacks the Word of God is the devil. If you find yourself attacking the Bible, now you know where that push for you to do so is coming from.
