Do you listen to God’s Truth, or do you listen to what you want to hear? Do you delight in the ways of the Lord including His discipline to train, or do you delight in evil, too prideful to listen to instruction having nothing of God to fear? These questions are not to promote anger or a fight, but only to dig deep in your heart; truly to know and do what is pleasing in the Lord’s sight. The Bible is God breathed and is good for correction, rebuke, and training in God’s righteousness, for it is not up for debate, if you simply disagree with the content of what God says in His Book; then do not argue with others who share the scriptures as it is what God is only saying to us all and if you say it’s untrue, then really it’s your heart that you refuse to know by taking a much needed look. Would you rather hear lies and what sounds pleasant to the ears? Or would you rather know the truth even if God brought you to your knees in true repentance of heart felt tears? Do you believe that God doesn’t let His children suffer in any pain? If you really think this, I need to inform you how that is very shallow and vain. For if God chose to give us His One and only Son to suffer and pay the price for those who would believe, then what makes you better than God the Son, to not go through suffering and to die while proclaiming your Lord and Savior’s Name? I warn you not to listen to the father of lies, the murderer since the beginning of Adam and Eve, who only wants to destroy anyone who will listen to him, the simple and vain who are too blind to see God and His Word to believe. God’s living Word who came to this earth to fulfill the perfect plan of salvation for those whose hearts would know and believe in the Name of Jesus, God’s only Son. These are a witness in heaven which are the Father, Word, and Holy Spirit as they are equally One. The Bible speaks of this Truth as it says in 1 John 5:7-9 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. The prophecy of the scripture is not for personal interpretation, but is what God says and the Holy Spirit of Truth teaches the heart of all the children to know with God’s Wisdom and not with man’s opinion to add; don’t listen to man’s instruction of thought, but listen to God’s teaching in your heart as you will know whether it is from God or an evil spirit trying to trick your mind against Him by way of worldly wants to make you temporarily glad. Listen to God in 1 Peter 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 1 John 2:20, 27 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit- just as it has taught you, remain in him. Ephesians 4:11-16 It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
Amen. ;) Well said.
