People, There is a difference between the scriptures and the word of GOD, there is also a difference between Knowing The Scriptures AND Knowing The Word Of GOD, because JESUS is the Living Word of GOD who inspires all the scriptures, and all the prophets, and JESUS is surely letting all of us know for sure, that the word of GOD is way more powerful than the scriptures, because JESUS is the revelation knowledge of all the scriptures!
And you cannot understand any of the scriptures if JESUS does not reveal them to you!
People, you can know the bible from its beginning to its end, but if JESUS does not reveal himself and GOD to you in the scriptures, then all you will know is a bunch of carnal religious book knowledge with no revelation of anything you read!
(JOHN 5:39-42) JESUS SAYS, Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are the same scriptures which testify of me.
And you will not come to me, that you might have life.
I do receive not honour from men.
But I know you, that you do not have the love of GOD in you.
I am come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me: but if another man shall come in his own name, then him you will receive.
How can you believe them, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that comes from GOD only?
Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuses you, even Moses, in whom you trust.
For had you believed Moses, then you would have believed me; for Moses wrote of me.
But if you do not believe not Moses writings about me, then how shall you believe my words?
(LUKE 24:24-27) And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but JESUS they saw not.
Then JESUS said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, JESUS expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
(LUKE 24:45) Then JESUS opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
(2 TIMOTHY 3:16) All scripture is given by “INSPIRATIONS OF GOD”, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
(HEBREWS 4:12) For “THE WORD OF GOD” is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
(JOHN 1:1-5) In the beginning was the Word/JESUS, and the Word/JESUS was with GOD, and the Word/JESUS was GOD.
The same JESUS was in the beginning with GOD.
All things were made by JESUS; and without JESUS was not any thing made that was made.
In JESUS was life; and the life in JESUS was the light of men.
And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
(REVELATION 19:12-14) His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called “THE WORD OF GOD.”
People, there is a difference between the scriptures and the word of GOD, there is also a difference between knowing the scriptures and knowing the word of GOD, because JESUS is the word of GOD who inspires all the scriptures!
(JOHN 14:6-7) JESUS SAYS, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.
If you had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and have seen him.
SINCE GOD IS NOT A FOOL HE DOESN’T FIGHT BATTLES FOR FOOLS
Psalms 14:1 The fool has said in his heart, ” There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.
Proverbs 24:7 Wisdom is too lofty for a fool; He does not open his mouth in the gate.
Proverbs 26:3 A whip for the horse, A bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the fool’s back.
Exodus 14:14 The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
Deuteronomy 1:30 The LORD your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes
SOME PEOPLE ARE VERY FOOLISH AS THEY HAVE NO FEAR OF GOD IN THEIR HEARTS OR LIVES AND ONE DAY WILL PAY FOR IT
Ecclesiastes 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, And let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; Walk in the ways of your heart, And in the sight of your eyes; But know that for all these God will bring you into judgment.
Ecclesiastes 12: 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. 14 For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.
THERE ARE PEOPLE, INCLUDING CHRISTIANS AND PREACHERS, WHO THINKS THEY ARE SOMETHING GREAT AND IMPORTANT BUT IN REALITY HAVE DECEIVED THEMSELVES. AND BEING DECEIVED DOESN’T MEAN YOU ARE GOING TO HEAVEN!
GALATIANS 6:3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself
1 Corinthians 3:18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOUR FRUIT REMAIN AND NOT PERISH
John 15: 1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.
2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.
12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
17 These things I command you, that you love one another.
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH YOU SING AND DANCE AND PRAISE THE LORD, IF YOU ARE IN REBELLION OR HAVE NOT DEALT WITH UNCONFESSED SIN IN YOUR LIFE, GOD WILL NOT MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF!
ACTS 16:25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.
2 CHRONICLES 19:19 Then the Levites of the children of the Kohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with voices loud and high.
20 So they rose early in the morning and went out into the Wilderness of Tekoa; and as they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, “Hear me, O Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem: Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper.”
21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: ” Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.”
22 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.
23 For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another
