You do not gain understanding from Bible study. Most professing Christians do not even know WHO Jesus is. If they did they would obey and follow Him.
Jesus said to the pharisees:“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; 40and you are UNWILLING TO COME TO ME so that you may have life."John 5:39.
The Jewish pharisees, just like many "Christians" today, were seeking the scriptures but they rejected Jesus, they were looking for a reason to kill Him.
Very few professing Christians follow Jesus. Most of them are just religious, Bible believers, church clique members, hypocrites, sinners. They lack understanding. They are always studying the Bible "always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth." 2 Timothy3:7. They do not understand WHO Jesus is and therefor they do not follow, obey and know Him. They despise and shun Him. They are arrogant, spiritually blind and deaf because THEY DO NOT SEEK THE TRUTH, they will die in their sins .
To those who seek the truth, Jesus reveals the truth, as Jesus explained it to His disciples also:"10As soon as He was alone, His followers, along with the twelve, began asking Him about the parables. 11And He was saying to them, “To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God, but those who are outside get everything in parables, 12so that WHILE SEEING, THEY MAY SEE AND NOT PERCEIVE, AND WHILE HEARING, THEY MAY HEAR AND NOT UNDERSTAND, OTHERWISE THEY MIGHT RETURN AND BE FORGIVEN.” Mark 4:10.
The apostle John wrote: "And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life."1John5:20. Those who seek the truth, find it, they find Jesus and they follow and obey Him, because they UNDERSTAND that Jesus alone is the Way, the TRUTH and the LIFE. They become His disciples, His servants who serve Him day and night.
Have you found the TRUTH? Have you found Jesus, or are you seeking for eternal life in the Bible? Seek the TRUTH. Humble yourself before Jesus in prayer. Ask Jesus to open your spiritual eyes and ears and give you UNDERSTANDING. Then you will understand all things, because Jesus will give you understanding. Without Jesus we can do nothing.
May Jesus bless you.
