The Bible is a Living book .You can read a verse many times and get something new from the Lord about it every time. It is truly Living Waters. The Lord will speak to you right out of the pages. It is magical and supernatural. My Son James used to sleep every night with the Bible right on his chest. I think he still does a lot of times. Good idea !The Bible has power! The Bible is divinely inspired. The devil hates the Bible. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”.( II Timothy 3: 16). The Bible is a collection of 66 books written over a 1500 year period by 40 different authors who were Prophets and Men of God.There are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.The Old Testament was written in Hebrew. The New Testament was written in Greek, and Aramaic. The Old Testament was translated into Greek in 250 B.C. under the reign of King Philadelphus of Greece. This is an established historical fact taught in all colleges and universities. The Old & New Testament was translated into English in 1611 under the reign of King James of England. At this time the English language was at it’s most beautiful state. The whole Bible is about one main theme, Jesus Christ and his birth, and life, and death, and resurrection, and his return again. There are hundreds of fulfilled prophecies proving it was written under the inspiration of God. Like King David said “My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”(Psalm 45:1b).Peter said “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:” (II Peter 1:19).”knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20-21).The fulfilled prophecies in the Bible are a more sure way of knowing that Jesus is the Son of God, who died for our sins and rose from the dead, than even seeing Jesus personally and following him as the disciples did and witnessed all his miracles and his Resurrection. The Bible has wisdom, and builds faith. “So then Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17).The Bible is our guide,our road map through life. It is a love letter to you from the creator of all things. When you read it you can find help, and comfort, and strength and encouragement. Please don’t neglect reading the Bible . You need the spiritual nourishment from it, just as your body needs food to live on, so also does your spirit need the spiritual nourishment from Gods Word, “Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the Words of his mouth more than my necessary food.”(Job 23:12). The Bible teaches us how to love, and be loved, and how to forgive, and be forgiven.“The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.”(Psalm 119:72).The Bible is a treasure chest just waiting to be opened. Your relationship with Jesus and his Bible is the most valuable thing you have. “If they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them. “(Isaiah 8:20).“Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. “(Psalm 119:105). Don’t go stumbling around. Take the light of God’s Word with you. Here is a challenge for you. If you don’t understand the Book of Daniel, and Revelation, and Matthew Chapter 24 well enough to teach it to others then why not? If you can’t you need to ask the Lord for more of a hunger for his Word, or you are really missing out on some real faith building and spiritual strength.
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 believe 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
