When the cop says, “Pull over” – why do it? When Mom said, ‘Stop putting hot sauce on your little brother’s gumbo’, why stop? If you sit down comfortably in a dentist’s chair, in spite of all those wicked looking instruments, what allows you to relax? In each case, the answer is authority. You ought to be very comfortable trusting your life to the Word of God. Who has more authority? You do not need to think further about it, if there is no authority in this world, or in the ‘world beyond’. But if there is, we do need to consider it. Is the Word of God authoritative? There is a God, and He is creator, it seems to me that it would be!
We have been given the KJBible to let us KNOW that God is real, and that He has sent His Word to us. What does it say about Him and His Word?
God said, Let there be light: and there was Light.’- Gen 1:3; That is power! It also means that He is the Architect, and generates all there is, by His Word. Did the Apostle’s agree? Let us take a look: “Through faith, we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God/YHVH, so that things, which are seen, were not made of things which do appear.” – Hebrews 11:3 Things that are true last, lies fade away, and the corruptness underneath is revealed. Thus, truth has authority. That is the way it would be in an ideal world, in a court of law. “Do you swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth”; The Good Lord cannot do otherwise. “Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is truth.” – John 17:17 The Word of God is Truth, The Word is powerful, and has authority. It can change things. It concludes all things in comparison with itself. It can separate a person from sin, and darkness. “But the hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth”. – John 4:23 True Worship is worship which is rooted in, empowered or enlivened by, reflective of, and conforming to TRUTH. God’s Word is TRUE, and His Spirit is one with His Word… The Spirit and Word work toward the same thing, and today a true worshipper is one who surrenders to the Holy Spirit, while abiding in the definition of the WORD. This is the Apostolic experience of PENTECOST! In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1 AND John 1:13-15 ….”which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only Begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15 John bare witness of Him, and cried, saying, This was He of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.”
Are you aware that King Jesus, the Christ is the expression, or Word of God, written in flesh? Want to know God? Look at King Christ Jesus! His mind is conveyed to us in the Bible! “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” -John 1:14 There’s the record. God expressed Himself in the flesh. Hebrews 1:3 says: “Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; ‘…he that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath One that judgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day’.” – John 12:48. “Forever, O LORD, Thy Word is settled in heaven.” – Ps 119:89. “And I saw the dead, small, and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life: and the dead were judged out of those things that were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead, who were in it; and Death and Hell *NOTE:(the fourth horsemen …Revelation 6:7 “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth…), delivered up the dead who were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And Death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” Revelation 20:12-15. “Yea; and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things that thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; and that from a child thou hast known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto Salvation through faith/trust which is in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” – 2 Timothy 3:12-16. “Knowing this first that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” – 2 Peter 1:20. “And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is Salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” – 2 Peter 3:15-18. “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this Book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this Book. He who testifieth these things saith, surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Adonoi Yahshua/Lord Jesus.” – Revelation 22:18-20. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” – 2 Timothy 2:15. Let me mention that the Bible refers to Jesus Christ as Faithful and True: What a friend! “Anyway, the Scripture… someone may say; is full of contradictions.” Examine some so-called contradictions with them, item by item and you will find there no contradictions in the Bible. So when someone wants to challenge the Bible… ask him or her: “Have you read the Bible all the way through”? More than likely, they have not.
Watch out for “TIME BANDITS”! These are those who would go around and around on certain subjects. It is not up to us to change people’s minds… this is the job for the Holy Spirit. When others ask for information, show them what the Bible says; because at the “end of the day”, it does not matter what we think… if it does not line up with the Bible all the way… we are the ones wrong!
DEPOSITION: Declaration, statement, testimony… has to do with dethronement, removal and/or unseating.
INTERROGATORIES: Examine, question, inquire, probe… has to do with cross examination of information and witnesses in opposition to one’s view point. With the purpose of investigations and analysis of one’s view point. With much study and research involved. Delving into information with much scrutiny. Much seeking for the information that an opponent may try and keep from you.
Query…grilling…scrutinizing is involved.
Aggressive: assertive, forward, belligerent, contentious, pugnacious, truculent.
Contacts: connections, alliance, associations, links, touch points.
Sneaky: tricky, furtive, shifty, devious, underhanded.
Conniving: scheme, plot, manipulate.
Stealthy: sly, covert, furtive, crafty.
Ruthless: heartless, merciless, brutal.
When seeking for information that is to be used against an opponent and you are questioning associates of the opponent, always remember that this could be twisted information. Information that your opponent wants you to believe or that he may not want you to know at all…one must know how to find out the truth and know what the truth is to keep facts straight.
Not finished with this study yet. It is a rough draft and needs to be completed. Eternally His, Pamela B.
