How do you read the bible? Do you read it as a history book about things that happened long ago? Do you read it as fiction with little stories that are just fiction? Or do you read it as the TRUTH? That every word in the bible is the unfallible word of God?
Do you take this page out and only believe this page so that it works for you and your lifestyle?
Let's look at it this way. If you don't believe in tithing and what God says about tithing, then just tear those pages out of your bible. Or how about healing? If you believe healing was just for those days the bible was written, or miracles were just for those days, then go ahead and tear those pages out. I mean they are not for you if you don't believe. AMEN!
Now what about Salvation? Oh, you believe those scriptures, ok well leave those pages in there.
Now you got your bible just like you want it, just what you believe in. Good! Now let me ask you, how can you believe or have FAITH in the pages you left because they were all inspired by God, and the bible is God's Word, so His Word must not mean much to you, if you can't believe everything He says.
Right! I mean how can you believe that He is telling the TRUTH about salvation, but not the truth about the other things He spoke? How can you have Faith that you will be in heaven with Him one day if you do not believe and have Faith in every Word He spoke? AMEN!
What I am trying to say is when you take out one chapter you are cheating yourself out of God's Word on your life. His wisdom for living your everyday life. His love for every area of your life. AMEN!
Get back into His word and look at the begiinings of each book and then study out each book and see what God has to say.
You can not have Faith in just what you want to be true, your Faith has to be in the one who said it. Your Faith has to be in God Himself. AMEN!
Hebrews 11 v 3....By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the WORD of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.....
Hebrews 11 v 6....But without FAITH it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.....
Numbers 23 v 19....God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?...
In other words His Word is His Truth. All of it. He is not going to change His Word or His mind to make it what you believe. His Word is unchanging. AMEN!
Stay in the WORD!
