 KNOWING GOD’S WORD

 

 

 

MARCH 11, 2012

 

 

HOW DID GOD’S WORD COME TO US?

 

 

BY REVELATION

 

REVELATION:  A PROCESS BY WHICH GOD IMPARTED TO MAN TRUTHS WHICH HE OTHERWISE COULD NOT KNOW. 

 

WE KNOW THAT GOD SPOKE TO MAN, TO WRITE THE BIBLE.

 

MOSES WAS COMMANDED BY GOD TO WRITE THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE BIBLE

 

 

DEUTERONOMY 29:29

 

(29).  THE SECRET THINGS BELONG UNTO THE LORD OUR GOD, BUT THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE REVEALED BELONG UNTO US AND TO OUR CHILDREN FOR EVER, THAT WE MAY DO ALL THE WORDS OF THIS LAW.

 

 

BY INSPIRATION

 

INSPIRATION:  GOD DIVINELY INSPIRES BY GUIDING TO MAKES SURE THAT THE IMPARTED MESSAGE IS CORRECTLY WRITTEN DOWN.

 

2ND TIMOTHY 3:16-17

 

(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, THROUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS.

 

 

ISAIAH 59:21

 

(21).  AS FOR ME, THIS IS MY COVENANT WITH THEM, SAITH THE LORD; MY SPIRIT THAT IS UPON THEE, AND MY WORDS WHICH I PUT IN THY MOUTH, SHALL NOT DEPART OUT OF THY MOUTH, NOR OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THY SEED’S SEED, SAITH THE LORD, FROM HENCEFORTH AND FOREVER.

 

BY ILLUMINATION

 

ILLUMINATION:   A DEVINE PROCESS WHEREBY GOD CAUSES THE WRITTEN REVELATION TO BE UNDERSTOOD BY THE HUMAN HEART.

 

 

PROVERBS 6:23

 

(23).  FOR THE COMMANDMENT IS A LAMP; AND THE LAW IS LIGHT; AND REPROOFS OF INSTRUCTION ARE THE WAY OF LIFE

 

PSALM 19:8

 

(8).  THE STATUTES OF THE LORD ARE RIGHT, REJOICING THE HEART, THE COMMANDMENT OF THE LORD IS PURE, ENLIGHTENING THE EYES.

 

 

PSALMS 119:130

 

(130).  THE ENTRANCE OF THY WORDS GIVETH LIGHT; IT GIVETH UNDERSTANDING UNTO THE SIMPLE.

 

 

PSALM 119:105

 

(105).  THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET, AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH.

 

 

WHAT GOD’S WORD DOES

 

GOD WORD CONVICTS:

 

 

NEHEMIAH 8:9

 

(9).  AND NEHEMIAH, WHICH IS THE TIRSHATHA, AND EZRA THE PRIEST THE SCRIBE AND THE LEVITES THAT TAUGHT THE PEOPLE, SAID UNTO ALL THE PEOPLE, THIS DAY IS HOLY UNTO THE LORD YOUR GOD; MOURN NOT, NOR WEEP.  FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WEPT, WHEN THEY HEARD THE WORDS OF THE LAW.

 

NEHEMIAH 9:3

 

(3).  AND THEY STOOD UP IN THEIR PLACE, AND READ IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW OF THE LORD THEIR GOD ONE FOURTH PART OF THE DAY, AND ANOTHER FOURTH PART THEY CONFESSED, AND WORSHIPPED THE LORD THEIR GOD.

 

 

JOHN 16:8

 

(8).  AND WHEN HE IS COME, HE WILL REPROVE THE WORLD OF SIN, AND OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND OF JUDGEMENT.

 

 

ACTS 2: 37

 

(37).  NOW WHEN THEY HEARD THIS, THEY WERE PRICKED IN THEIR HEART, AND SAID UNTO PETER AND TO THE REST OF THE APOSTLES, MEN AND BRETHREN, WHAT SHALL WE DO?

 

 

GOD’S WORD CORRECTS

 

 

PSALMS 17:4

 

(4).  CONCERNING THE WORKS OF MEN, BY THE WORD OF THY LIPS I HAVE KEPT ME FROM THE PATHS OF THE DESTROYER.

 

 

GOD’S WORD CLEANSES

 

PSALM 119:9

 

(9).  WHEREWITHAL SHALL A YOUNG MAN CLEANSE HIS WAY?  BY TAKING HEED THERETO ACCORDING TO THY WORD.

 

 

JOHN 15:3

 

(3).  NOW YE ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN UNTO YOU.

 

 

1ST JOHN 1:9-10

 

(9).  IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, AND TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

 

(10).  IF WE SAY THAT WE HAVE NOT SINNED, WE MAKE HIM A LIAR, AND HIS WORD IS NOT IN US.

 

GOD’S WORD CONFIRMS

 

JOHN 8:31

 

(31).  THEN SAID JESUS TO THOSE JEWS WHICH BELIEVED ON HIM, IF YE CONTINUE IN MY WORD, THEN ARE YE MY DISCIPLES INDEED.

 

 

 

 

GOD’S WORD EQUIPS

 

PROVERBS 22:21

 

(21).  THAT I MIGHT MAKE THEE KNOW THE CERTAINTY OF THE WORDS OF TRUTH TO THEM THAT SEND UNTO THEE?

 

 

1ST TIMOTHY 4:13-16

 

(13).  TILL I COME, GIVE ATTENDANCE TO READING, TO EXHORTATION, TO DOCTRINE.

 

(14).  NEGLECT NOT THE GIFT THAT IS IN THEE, WHICH WAS GIVEN THEE BY PROPHECY, WITH THE LAYING ON OF THE HANDS OF THE PRESBYTERY.

 

(15).  MEDITATE UPON THESE THINGS; GIVE THYSELF WHOLLY TO THEM, THAT THY PROFITING MAY APPEAR TO ALL.

 

(16).  TAKE HEED UNTO THYSELF, AND UNTO THE DOCTRINE, CONTINUE IN THEM, FOR IN DOING THIS THOU SHALT BOTH SAVE THYSELF, AND THEM THAT HEAR THEE.
