It was a very clever plot of the devil
to get people to believe that the Bible is God's Word because once
people believe in a book you can change the book and you can use the
book to manipulate people to do what you want them to do. The Bible
is just a book, it was written by people.
There are more than 300 different
versions and translations of the English Bible alone. Every church
and denomination and person who is of a different opinion of his
interpretation of the Bible has taken the liberty to change and
interpret the Bible, “God's Word” as they say, to their own
liking. The Jefferson Bible has been modified to exclude the miracles
of Jesus, the words of Jesus. Still people say the Bible is the WORD
OF GOD and they believe in it. They believe that it is the COMPLETE
WORD OF GOD – whatever God said is contained in the Bible. That is
very convenient but it ignores God, it takes God out of the equation
and people get busy with the Bible.
God has spoken to many people through
the ages. He has revealed Himself to many and some of them wrote down
their experiences, and some of those documents are contained in the
Bible but that does not make it the Word of God. It is what they
heard from God and it does not mean that we have to believe what they
said, because they are mere humans.
Jesus Christ Himself is the Word of God
and God speaks for Himself. In these last times God spoke to us
through Jesus. He sent Jesus to deliver His Words, WORDS OF ETERNAL
LIFE so that those who believe those words and who OBEY them, they
will have eternal life because Jesus WILL REVEAL HIMSELF TO THOSE
WHO OBEY HIS WORDS. The words of Jesus, as they were recorded by the
eye witnesses and as they were remembered by some of those who heard
Him, those words were recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke
and John, and if we take those words seriously and we seek Jesus with
all our heart He will reveal Himself to us and we will get to KNOW
HIM FOR REAL and then we will HEAR the WORD OF GOD because God
Himself, Jesus Christ in the flesh, who IS also God, He will SPEAK
to us. Man will not live from bread alone but from every word that
proceeds from the MOUTH of God. God will speak to us IN OUR SPIRIT,
we will get to KNOW Him, we will get to KNOW Jesus Christ.
A collection of books called the Bible
is NOT THE WORD OF GOD. It is the most lucrative publication that has
ever been sold. More copies of the Bible have been sold and published
than any other book in the whole wide world and the same publishers
that publish the Bible also publish the satan's bible and all the
other versions because it makes MONEY.
If you want to know the truth, SEEK
JESUS and He will reveal Himself to you. Many people think that if
they quote Bible verses, even if they quote the words that Jesus
spoke that they will have salvation. It is not those who read the
Bible, who quote it and who preach it that are saved or that will
have LIFE, it is those who KNOW Jesus Christ, who OBEY Him and who
FOLLOW Him, those who KNOW the LIVING GOD and who live in
relationship with Him.
Jesus will say to many in that day:”Go
away I NEVER KNEW YOU,” and they will be disappointed to learn that
they were deceived by the devil, by people, they thought they were
saved based on what they believed from the scriptures, from the Bible
but they never got to know Jesus – they were deceived by the devil!
Dear friend, we need to KNOW JESUS and
He needs to know us. He is GOD, He is ALIVE. His sheep LISTEN to his
voice and they follow Him every day. They live to please Him. Many
people live like the devil and the quote the Bible and they believe
they have eternal life. The devil also quotes the Bible but he does
not obey Jesus. He knows Jesus but he will not follow nor obey Him.
He knows God, he knows the Word of God and he knows to deceive people
but we need to KNOW Jesus. Knowing your Bible will not save you. The
Bible is NOT God's Word. You need to HEAR God speaking to you.
If you do not HEAR God speaking to you,
then you are not one of His sheep. If you SEEK HIM you will FIND HIM.
If we draw closer to Him He will draw closer to us and He will reveal
Himself to us.
Do not be deceived. Seek Jesus for
yourself and you will find Him. Obey Him and follow Him until the
very end and you will have LIFE.
If we do not follow Him and obey Him
and live for Him until the end then He will also reject and deny us.
If we have no relationship with Him right now in this life, WHAT DO
WE WANT TO HAVE TO DO WITH HIM FOR ETERNITY? If we don't know Him now
we will never know Him. Get to know Jesus NOW before it is for ever
May Jesus bless you.
