The HOLY SPIRIT's GIFT

 


Psalm 119:97-119

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.


Yesterday, the Holy Spirit gifted me with something.

He imprinted my mind with these exact words:

"That all men may know the BIBLE, 

and live by it."


Automatically, that became this blog's description.

So very apt, in these critical, deciding days.

When you serve Spirit, He teaches you ALL you NEED to KNOW.

And He led me to the importance of the Bible.


Why must we know the Bible?

Why must we live by it?

These verses reveal why.

Deuteronomy 29:29

King James Version

29 The secret things belong unto the Lord our God

but those things which are revealed 

belong unto us and to our children for ever

that we may do all the words of this law.


Psalm 19:7-11

King James Version

7 The law of the Lord is perfect, 

converting the soul: 

the testimony of the Lord is sure, 

making wise the simple.

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, 

rejoicing the heart: 

the commandment of the Lord is pure, 

enlightening the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, 

enduring for ever: 

the judgments of the Lord 

are true and righteous altogether.

10 More to be desired are they than gold, 

yea, 

than much fine gold: 

sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: 

and in keeping of them there is great reward.


Psalm 119:97-119

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.

98 Thou through thy commandments 

hast made me wiser than mine enemies: 

for they are ever with me.

99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: 

for thy testimonies are my meditation.

100 I understand more than the ancients, 

because I keep thy precepts.

101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, 

that I might keep thy word.


Psalm 119:103-107

King James Version

103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! 

yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: 

therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, 

and a light unto my path.

106 I have sworn, 

and I will perform it, 

that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

107 I am afflicted very much: 

quicken me, 

O Lord, 

according unto thy word.


Proverbs 30:5

King James Version

5 Every word of God is pure

he is a shield unto them 

that put their trust in him.


Isaiah 40:8

King James Version

8 The grass withereth, 

the flower fadeth: 

but the word of our God 

shall stand for ever.


Jeremiah 15:16

King James Version

16 Thy words were found, 

and I did eat them; 

and thy word was unto me 

the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: 

for I am called by thy name, 

O Lord God of hosts.


Matthew 4:4

King James Version

4 But he answered and said, 

It is written, 

Man shall not live by bread alone, 

but by every word 

that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.


Romans 1:16-18

King James Version

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: 

for it is the power of God unto salvation 

to every one that believeth

to the Jew first, 

and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God 

revealed from faith to faith

as it is written, 

The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven 

against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, 

who hold the truth in unrighteousness;


Romans 10:17

King James Version

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, 

and hearing by the word of God.


Romans 15:4

King James Version

4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime 

were written for our learning

that we through patience 

and comfort of the scriptures 

might have hope.


2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given 

by inspiration of God

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


Hebrews 4:12

King James Version

12 For the word of God is quick, 

and powerful

and sharper than any twoedged sword

piercing even to the dividing asunder 

of soul and spirit

and of the joints and marrow

and is a discerner of the thoughts 

and intents of the heart.


James 1:25

King James Version

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, 

and continueth therein, 

he being not a forgetful hearer, 

but a doer of the work, 

this man shall be blessed in his deed.
