Wrestling with the Scriptures
Bible students and theologians like to wrestle with the Scriptures. They pick and choose and they apply scriptures in such a way as to fit in with their understanding or with their theories and their theology, but they never come to the truth because they are occupied with their own mind and their own desires, and their own beliefs.
Jesus Christ gives the Holy Spirit in those who obey Him. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth. If you wrestle with the Scriptures you always win, because you apply the scriptures to your own liking, your own desire, to your own understanding; but those who seek the truth go on their knees, they seek Jesus and they wrestle with the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, will guide you into all truth, but you will not win against the Spirit of God, the truth will always win it will triumph over lies and any opinions of man.
Those who are pure in heart will see God. Those who seek the truth do not wrestle with the Scriptures, they wrestle with the Spirit of God and they are taught the truth. They are not in darkness because the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, will teach them and guide them into the whole truth. The Spirit of Truth will refute the lies that we have been brought up with, the lies that we've been told and that we have come to believe. It is to our advantage to seek the truth to wrestle with the Spirit of God until the truth is revealed in us and to us. The Holy Spirit of God will guide us into all truth, if we truly seek Him.
Do not wrestle with the Scriptures. Do not try and make the Scriptures fit into your theology. Rather seek the truth, go on your knees and speak to Jesus. Ask Him to guide you into all truth and a Holy Spirit will enlighten your mind, will give you understanding of the truth.
May Jesus bless you.
