LIVE by the BIBLE

 

2 Timothy 3:15

King James Version

15 And that from a child 

thou hast known the holy scriptures, 

which are able to make thee wise 

unto salvation 

through faith 

which is in Christ Jesus.


Several moons ago (for it's another full moon this morning), the HOLY SPIRIT led me to these words:

"That all men may know the BIBLE, 

and live by it."


Very clearly imprinted upon my mind, I wrote it down.

It has become the sub-title of this blog since.


SPIRIT's instructions were clear:

1. That all men may KNOW the Bible.

2. And LIVE by it.


The Bible was to be our GUIDE book.

Our RULE book.

Our COMPASS.

The WORD of GOD must be our go-to.

For five very important reasons.

FIRST, these are the last days:

2 Timothy 3:1

King James Version

3 This know also, 

that in the last days 

perilous times shall come.


SECOND, man's going downhill.

2 Timothy 3:2-9

King James Version

2 For men shall be lovers 

of their own selves

covetous, 

boasters, 

proud, 

blasphemers, 

disobedient to parents, 

unthankful, 

unholy,

3 Without natural affection, 

trucebreakers, 

false accusers, 

incontinent, 

fierce, 

despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, 

heady, 

highminded, 

lovers of pleasures 

more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, 

but denying the power thereof: 

from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, 

and lead captive silly women laden with sins, 

led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, 

and never able to come 

to the knowledge of the truth.

8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, 

so do these also resist the truth: 

men of corrupt minds, 

reprobate concerning the faith.

9 But they shall proceed no further: 

for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, 

as their's also was.


THIRD, the Bible was inspired by GOD:

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.


FOURTH, the Rapture can happen any moment God chooses.

Matthew 24:40-42

King James Version

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not 

what hour your Lord doth come.


FIFTH, Jesus commanded we repent.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


Only by being born again, did I began reading Scripture.

Only by being born again, did Scripture become clear.

Only by being born again, did I start living Scripture.

Only by being born again, did Jesus alert me to the Rapture.

To understand Scripture, you MUST become BORN AGAIN.

For, the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD will teach you about JESUS.

All will be made clear.

And you can start living by the BIBLE's truth.

Happy, content, and secure, in GOD's WORD.

Awaiting the Lord's soon return.
