NUGGETS: Not just any word

By Jannie Linney

Well, I believe we are coming into a deeper understanding of the word of God. One way we know, is the fact we are living in it’s prophecy of old right now! There is constant proof in the word of God, verifying it’s proof. All the more, showing us we should read the word for ourselves. Allowing the Spirit to reveal to us individually what God has for us at each reading!

The Word of God, The Bible, is the final authority. If we hear anything taught, dream a dream, have an experience, a vision, or even if an angel bring us a word that doesn’t line up with “The Word of God,” then we are to stay with what the Bible says. Yes, the Bible teaches, we are to have teachers, but we are to judge what they teach us by the word of God. Sense Jesus is the word and He never changes [Heb. 13:8] then the Word of God will not be constantly changing according to some man, prophet, teacher, or some Church leader. Let’s get real, God is the only one we can depend on to stay stable and sure. He said “I am the Lord and I change not” [Mal. 3:6]. So If some human tells you, that the word of God changes with the latest revelation from the leader, Run!

Yes, The Holy Spirit will open our understanding to more of Him. The more we study, the Greater He grows in our heart. The Word does not Change, only out knowledge of it. Glory!

Paul wrote by the Holy spirit “Though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preach unto you let him be accursed” [Gla. 1:8]. People who add another book to the Bible or take out parts of the Bible, are bringing a different gospel. They will be cursed and bring a curse on all who follow them. Scriptures to read that say, do not add or take away [Gla. 3:18, Deut. 4:2, Rev. 22:18-19].

Remember God would not give you a book of instructions and then create you so dumb you couldn’t understand it. The one thing an unbeliever has to understand is “You Must be born again to enter the kingdom.” When you are born of the spirit, then the Holy Spirit will help you understand the Bible, if you study. [1Cor. 2:10]

Verse 14 reads ”But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” Once you are born again, you are no longer natural. You are a new creature [2 Cor. 5:17]

Before I came to know the Lord, I would read places in the Bible, lay it down and go off saying “That’s just like Greek to me. I just don’t understand it.” And I had been to church all my life. Not until I received the Spirit of God in my heart, did the Bible began to open up to me. I still learn more each time I study the word. The Bible is ever new. It’s ever true. One who really has a true heart toward God , will not take one scripture and build a doctrine around it. Each verse will be studied in the light of the whole cannon of scripture and in the light of the personality of God. Jesus said” I am the way, the truth and the Life” [John 14:6]. Our eternity, our forever depends on what we believe and accept for our life. Our “Eternity” is built on the word of God, “Not Just Any Word!”
