Someone told me the other day, ” Why don’t you pray and hear from the Lord and get some new things to teach us about?” (Lilly) Well, my answer to that statement is, Have you got everything down pat and solid of what has already been taught, in this Web Site www.answersintheword.com? It will not hurt you to read these postings again and again. And for your sake read them slowly, and meditate on each thought and scripture. There is so much scripture and scriptural truths to be found in each teaching, and the Bible says the Word is like a spiritual stream that never runs dry, from the Lord. The teachings in “Answers In The Word” are from God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Sometimes I will read 10 or 20 teachings again myself, and I’m so amazed how the Lord gives us these messages by His Spirit. They are Streams that Never Run Dry. I challenge anyone to show me anything in any of these teachings that are false and not Scriptural. In fact if you can, please do so, because I only want the truth to be taught. If you don’t have all these basic classes down solid, in your understanding, you should go over and over them until you do. When I was a new Christian, I was taught these classes over, and over,and over again, until I had them ingrained in my heart , mind, and spirit, and I would teach many others the same way, and I am still trying to do the same thing today.” And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (II Timothy 2:2). I’m talking about the basic classes, such as Salvation, The Holy Spirit, Faith and Healing, Living For Jesus, Prayer, and Hearing From God, Bible Knowledge, and Bible Prophecy. If you don’t have these down really good in your own heart, and mind, and understanding, how can you be an effective witness for Jesus, of the full counsel of God, and have your own personal foundation of Faith to build your spiritual house, on the solid rock of the Word of God? “ For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. “(Acts 20:27). All these basic classes are for your solid foundation. All the rest is to help you build up your Spiritual house from the foundation. You don’t put the windows and the chimney, and roof on before you have your foundation complete.“As new born babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.”(II Peter 2:2).“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”(Matthew 7:24-29). I can’t even understand for the life of me,why anyone would not want to be a strong Christian in Faith for their own personal benefit , if for nothing else, and have a good strong foundation to build your house on.There is a terrible storm coming, and it is now on the horizon. Get your house ready now while you still can.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
