*THE HOLY BIBLE

*It has Chinese version in the back. The enemies of truth deleted 1,000 words from this article, may God delete their names from the Book of Life.

The Holy Bible is not like any book. The Bible is the sole Book whereby Christianity is built and based upon. The Bible or the Scripture claims to be the Word of God, although holy prophets and holy apostles were moved and wrote by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Bible never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit and wrote them down. The Bible is right because God cannot be wrong. It simply means the Bible is not the teaching of man; it is the revelation of God. The Bible is divided into two parts, the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is the basis of Judaism, mainly the Mosaic Law and the Prophets – from Genesis to Malachi, a set of 39 books. The New Testament is the basis of Christianity, written by apostles after the ascension of Jesus Christ - from Matthew to Revelation, a set of 27 books. Thus, the Bible is composed of 66 books. Unfortunately, the Jews still wait for the Messiah, they do not know or believe that Jesus Christ was the Messiah who was God and became Man some 2,000 years ago. For this reason the Jews believe only the Old Testament. Christians believe in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament is fulfilled in the New Testament because Jesus Christ fulfilled the Law of Moses. All the prophets spoke about the Messiah fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible is not like other books, it is the message of God to mankind. The central message of the Bible is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was sent into the world to die for our sins, rose from death for our justification. He ascended to Heaven sitting at the right hand of God, and He is coming again to reign with the saints forever and ever. Some humanists and modernists and unbelievers out of their evil heart of unbelief want a ‘different and better Bible’. There is no other Bible, there is no better Bible, there is only one Bible which is the Word of the Lord. Men may fake a Good Book. There is no other Good Book, the Bible is the only Good Book because it has the Word of life, and it teaches the Way of God in truth. 

The Bible was Not conceived by man, or woman, or men. The Bible was not invented by human being or human beings. The Bible was not made by an institution or institutions. The Bible was not a product of culture, tradition, religion, custom, experience or experiment, discovery or wisdom of human beings. The Bible was not a fable, fiction, composition, novel, anthology, essay, philosophy of human mind. The Bible is the Holy Scripture, the Word of God.

There are four types of book. Books that indulge you are bad; books that inform you are useful; books that instruct you are good; and books that inspire you are great. Bad books are plentiful, good books are few, and great books are rare. All good books and great books are human. If I read a great book several times, it begins to tire me. The Bible is divine, the greatest of all books. I have studied the Bible more than 100 times (estimated) all my life and still it does not make me tired or weary. Every time I read the Bible over again, I receive new revelation and inspiration. The Bible has the most instructive history, the most fascinating biography, the sweetest poetry, the most inspiring message, the most comfortable counsel, the most soul-searching prayer, the greatest sermon, the purest wisdom, the truest knowledge, and the powerful Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Book of all books is God’s Word, the Eternal Word of God. You can find out for yourself.

Christianity is neither superstition nor science. Superstition is based on false and unfounded beliefs and fears. Science is limited by human and empirical and tentative knowledge at a time and place. Christianity is the revealed religion. Only God makes revelation of the ultimate truth and wisdom. Revelation cannot be achieved by human discovery or wisdom. Christianity is the revelation of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was God who became Man to reveal God and spiritual things to human beings. 

1. The Church of Jesus Christ is the pillar of truth.

2. The Roman Catholic Church is historically false, full of heresies and wrong doctrines and superstitions.

3. Science cannot provide ultimate truth and wisdom because science at best is human tentative knowledge at a given time and place.

4. Human philosophies cannot provide ultimate truth and wisdom because they are limited human thoughts confined to limited intelligence.

5. All religions except Christianity are man-made.

6. Christianity – the revealed religion – explains and exalts the Supreme Being, Wisdom and Truth.

7. Neither science nor religion can save mankind.

8. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life – outside of Christ there is no salvation.

9. The wisdom of the living is to know the Most High rules the universe and over the realm of mankind.

10. It is of infinite truth and wisdom that human beings must submit themselves humbly to the Will of God.

Jhn 10:35,“If he called them gods, to whom the Word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken).” The Bible, the Scripture and the Word of God are synonymous. Word in Greek is logos which means speech, a living voice, a conception or idea, what is said, decree, dictum, mandate, declaration, instruction, reason, revelation, oracle or utterance, the sayings of God, the moral precepts given by God, doctrine, teaching, the essential Word of God, Jesus Christ, the personal Wisdom and Power in union with God; - it occurs 334 times in the New Testament. The Word of God came to holy prophets and apostles. 

Luk 3:2,“In the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the Word of God came to John, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness.” 

Luk 5:1,“Now it happened that while the crowd was pressing around Him and listening to the Word of God, He was standing by the lake of Gennesaret.” 

The Word of Jesus is the Word of God. 

Jhn 1:1,“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Mat 24:35,“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” 

To pass away in Greek is parerchomai which means to perish, go out of existence, end, come to an end; - it occurs 46 times in the New Testament. If heaven and earth will pass away, how much sooner the American imperialism, Islamic terrorism and the evil empire of Japan? All things will pass away; the Words of Jesus will never pass away. The Word of God will not pass away.

The Word of God reveals God to mankind. Scripture in Greek is graphē which means a writing, thing written, the book itself, or its contents; a certain portion or passage or section of the Holy Scripture; - it occurs 51 times in the New Testament. To break in Greek is lyō which means to dismiss, break up, annul, subvert, undo, do away with, deprive of authority, demolish, destroy, overthrow, do away with; - it occurs 45 times in the New Testament. 

Why does Jesus say, The Scripture cannot be broken? 

Psa 119:89, “Lamedh.

Forever, O LORD, 

Your word is settled in heaven.” 

Word in Hebrew is dabar which means speech, saying, utterance, discourse, edict, oracle; - it occurs 1,414 times in the Old Testament. To settle in Hebrew is natsab which means to stand firm, establish, station, set, fix, put, place; - it occurs 79 times in the Old Testament. The Word of God is settled in Heaven where no missile, rocket, warplane, radar, etc. can reach. Whatever the rich and powerful do on earth does not affect the Word of God fixed in Heaven one bit. 

To say the Bible says is the same to say the Scripture says. To say in the Bible is the same to say in the Scriptures. To say according to the Bible is the same to say according to the Scriptures. The Holy Bible means the Holy Scriptures. To say the Word of the Lord is the same as the Word of God. When Jesus speaks, God speaks. The Word of Jesus is the Word of God. The Holy Bible is the Holy Scripture and the Word of God.

Luk 24:25-27, “And He (Jesus) said to them: “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter into His glory?” Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.” 

Note: All the Scriptures proclaim one central message of the Bible which is Jesus Christ. Foolish in Greek is anoētos which means unintelligible, not understanding, unwise; - it occurs 7 times in the New Testament. To explain in Greek is diermēneuō which means to unfold the meaning of what is said, expound; - it occurs 6 times in the New Testament.

There is no such a thing called a liberal interpretation of the Bible, a broad interpretation of the Bible, or a rigid interpretation of the Bible, a narrow interpretation of the Bible, etc. There is only one correct interpretation of the Bible is to explain it accurately.


1. The Word of the Lord.

Specifically at a point in time God spoke to a particular person or group of people, it can be cited as the Word of the Lord.

Gen 15:1,“After these things the Word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying: Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”

Note: Word in Hebrew is dabar which means speech, saying, utterance, something said; - it occurs 1,439 times in the Old Testament. Vision in Hebrew is machazeh which means in the ecstatic state; - it occurs only 4 times in the Old Testament.

Gen 15:4,“And behold, the Word of the LORD came to him, saying: This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.”

Note: The Word of God often explains and gives instruction or command.

God told Abram (later became Abraham) specifically that Ishmael shall not be his heir, but Isaac who will come from his own body shall be his heir.

Exd 8:1,“And the LORD spoke to Moses: Go to Pharaoh and say to him, Thus says the LORD: Let My people go, that they may serve Me.”

Note: The Lord told Moses to say to Pharaoh: Thus says the Lord. The standard formula was used by all prophets who spoke for God to anyone from king to the Israelites: Thus says the Lord.

Exd 9:20,“He who feared the Word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his livestock flee to the houses.”

Note: The LORD said to Moses that tomorrow He would cause very heavy hail to rain down throughout the land of Egypt. Those servants of Pharaoh who feared the Word of the Lord made their servants and their livestock flee to the houses. Those who did, did not die in the field. Those who did not died.

Num 3:16,“So Moses counted them, as he was commanded by the Word of the LORD.”

Note: Command in Hebrew is tsavah  which means to order, charge, give orders, lay charge, give charge to; - it occurs about 494 times in the Old Testament. Moses took a census of the Israelites as God commanded him.

To obey God’s Word is to obey God’s command. To obey God's command is to obey God.

Num 15:31,“Because he has despised the Word of the LORD, and has broken His commandment, that person shall be completely cut off; his guilt shall be upon him.”

Note: Despise in Hebrew is bazah which means to hold in contempt, disdain, regard with contempt, figuratively to trample with the feet, make light of; - it occurs about 43 times in the Old Testament. To despise the Word of the Lord is to despise the Lord, a very serious sin. Anyone who breaks the Lord’s commandment, that person shall be completely cut off. To be cut off is to be killed.

Num 22:18,“Then Balaam answered and said to the servants of Balak: Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go beyond the Word of the LORD my God, to do less or more.

Note: Silver and gold stands for money. Almost all sins ever committed have been committed for the love of money. In fact the love of money is the root of all evils. No prophet can go beyond the Word of the Lord, to do more or less.

Go beyond in Hebrew is `abar which means to pass over, cross, cross over, march over; pass beyond, violate, overlook or neglect, bypass, omit, supersede; - it occurs about 559 times in the Old Testament. This is a core principle: Preachers cannot and must not go beyond the Word of the Lord as it written in the Bible. Speculation or private interpretation of the Bible is strictly forbidden.

Question: How does a prophet of God speak for God?

Num 22:38,“And Balaam said to Balak: Look, I have come to you! Now, have I any power at all to say anything? The word that God puts in my mouth, that I must speak.

Note: Balaam was bad in other things, but he was right that what God put in his mouth that he must speak. All preachers must not use their imagination to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ; they must adhere to what the Bible clearly teaches. For example, some false preachers teach that God is love therefore there is no hell. But Jesus Christ says, Mat 10:28,And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him (God) who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Note: God destroys the body and soul of the wicked or unbeliever in hell, but the body and soul do not die (cease to exist) but suffer for eternity.

2Pe 2:15,“They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam son of Beor, who loved the wages of wickedness.”

Note: Wages in Greek is misthos which means dues paid for work, reward: used of the fruit naturally resulting from toils and labors; - it occurs about 29 times in the New Testament. This Scripture says that Balaam loved the wages of wickedness; therefore do not follow the way of Balaam. The way of Wall Street is the way of Balaam who loved the wages of wickedness. Hedge fund managers who do nothing productive but gambling on investors’ money make several billion a year can be called the wages of wickedness. Doctors and hospital owners who become filthy rich by predatory and fraudulent practices can be called the wages of wickedness. Corrupt politicians and bureaucrats also love the wages of wickedness.

Jud 1:11,“Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam's error; they have been destroyed in Korah's rebellion.”

Note: Balaam’s error was that he rushed for profit. You can observe how government officials and business executives, institutions and individuals, etc. rush for profit in a capitalistic society. The financial and economic crisis created by Wall Street in 2008 was caused by Balaam’s error, those who loved the wages of wickedness.

Rev 2:14,“Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality.”

Note: The teaching of Balaam entices people to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality. Some false Chinese preachers teach it is o.k. to worship ancestors and eat food offered to ancestors or idols. Some false teachers say it is o.k. to divorce and remarry. Certain minority groups covertly consent their church leaders to have extramarital or homosexual affairs. Any teaching entices idolatry is the teaching of Balaam. In the West, few worship idols; but prosperity gospel preachers encourage people to love money. Col 3:5,“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.”

Note: Earthly nature includes sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed. Greed is idolatry. Capitalism is based on greed; therefore it is not compatible with Christianity. Western values are based on the love of money, power and sex; therefore they are not compatible with the Christian values of faith, hope and love. Wall Street people are experts in greed.

Deu 5:5-7,“At that time I stood between the LORD and you to declare to you the Word of the LORD, because you were afraid of the fire and did not go up the mountain. And He said: I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me.”

Note: Moses stood before God and the Israelites to declare the Word of God to them. Moses symbolizes the model of God’s servants.

Deu 30:14,“But the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.”

Note: If the Word is in your heart and in your mouth, it is very near you.

It is our duty to meditate on the Word of the Lord day and night.

Deu 34:5,“So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the Word of the LORD.”

Note: Moses died in the land of Moab was a historical fact. Everything written in the Bible is according to the Word of the Lord. What the Lord says is so, historically and spiritually true.

2Sa 7:4-5,“But it happened that night that the Word of the LORD came to Nathan, saying, Go and tell my servant DavidThis is what the LORD says: Are you the one to build Me a house to dwell in?”

NoteDavid wanted to build a house for the Lord. Even what you wanted to do may be good; you better listen to what the Lord says. So the Word of the Lord came to Nathan the prophet, Nathan told David what the Lord said. The Word of the Lord is the supreme and final authority.

2Sa 22:31,“As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”

Note: Proven means refined, pure, can be trusted. The Word of the Lord is proven true all the time.

Psa 33:4,“For the Word of the LORD is right, and all His work is done in truth.”

Note: Right in Hebrew is yashar which means straight, upright, correct, straightforward, just, fitting, proper, righteous, true; - it occurs about 119 times in the Old Testament. The Word of the Lord is forever right, men are usually and repeatedly wrong.

Psa 33:6,By the Word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.”

Note: Heavens in Hebrew is shamayim visible heavens, as abode of the stars, the visible universe, the abode of God and holy angels; - it occurs about 420 times in the Old Testament. which means The Word of the Lord is so powerful that the heavens (universe) were made by the Word of Lord. There are three heavens, the first is the sky where birds and planes fly; the second is the universe where countless stars and galaxies are; the third heaven if the abode of God and holy angels.

Act 8:25, “So when they had testified and preached the Word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, preaching the Gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.”

Note: Word in Greek is logos which means what someone has said, speech, the sayings of God, the doctrine concerning the attainment through Jesus Christ salvation in the Kingdom of God; - it occurs about 330 times in the New Testament. Many preachers do not know how to preach the Word of the Lord which is the Gospel, so they preach how to win friends and influence people, how to get rich, etc.

Act 13:48,“Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the Word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.”

Note: The Word of the Lord that made me glad is the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Glorify in Greek is doxazō which means to praise, extol, magnify, celebrate, honor, do honor to, hold in honor, make glorious, cause the dignity and worth of some person or thing to become manifest and acknowledged; - it occurs about 62 times in the Old Testament. Believers honor and magnify the Word of the Lord. Appoint in Greek is tassō which means to arrange, ordain, order, decree; - it occurs only 8 times in the New Testament. As many as were appointed or ordained by God to obtain eternal life believed. This does not mean God predetermines some to go to heaven and others to go to hell. Heaven or hell, you have a choice. You have a choice does not mean you can save yourself by your own merit or good deed, for no one is good enough in the sight of God. That is why God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for sinners, so that all who accept and believe in Jesus Christ may be saved by faith through grace of God. God’s love is for everyone, but not everyone would accept and believe. A boy of a Chinese church was taught that Jesus loved him because he had good points. No, God loved sinners not because they are worthy. No one deserves the love of God. No one is worthy the grace of God. God knows from ages past who would believe and who would not believe. Jesus Christ says, 

Jhn 8:24,“I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the One I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.” Jhn 5:40,“But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” Are you willing to believe and be saved?

Act 15:35,“Paul and Barnabas also remained in Antioch, teaching and preaching the Word of the Lord, with many others also.”

Note: Teach in Greek is didaskō which means to hold discourse with others in order to instruct them, deliver didactic discourses, impart instruction, instill doctrine into one, explain or expound a doctrine; - it occurs about 97 times in the New Testament. Preach in Greek is euaggelizō which means to announce or proclaim glad tidings, in the New Testament it is used especially of the good news of the coming of the Messiah, the Savior of the world, how Christ died for sinners to atone our sins and rose from death for our justification. The word ‘evangelism’is derived from the Greek word. Preaching is focused on those who have not known the Lord, while teaching is to provide instruction for believers to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. The Word of the Lord is right and true.

Mar 16:15,“And He said to them: Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.”

Note: In obeying the command of the Lord, I proclaim the Gospel to the world through the Internet, not for money or praise of man.

2. The Word of the Lord is also called the Word of God.

1Sa 9:27,“As they were going down to the outskirts of the city, Samuel said to Saul: Tell the servant to go on ahead of us. And he went on. But you stand here awhile, that I may announce to you the Word of God.

Note: Announce in Hebrew is shama` which means to cause to hear, call to hear, summon, give heed, make proclamation; - it occurs 1,159 times in the Old Testament. To announce the Word of God was a serious and solemn matter, much more than the practice of announcing the Chinese imperial decree because Israel was then ruled by theocracy.

1Ki 12:22-24,“But the Word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying: Speak to Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, to all the house of Judah and Benjamin, and to the rest of the people, saying, Thus says the LORD: You shall not go up nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel. Let every man return to his house, for this thing is from Me. Therefore they obeyed the Word of the LORD, and turned back, according to the Word of the LORD.”

Note: Obey in Hebrew is shama` which means to hear with attention or interest, listen to, yield to, be obedient to, give heed to; - it occurs about 1,159 times in the Old Testament. The Word of God came to the man of God. The man of God spoke what God spoke. What God spoke people must obey. The Word of God stopped the war between king of Judah and king of Israel.

Pro 30:5,“Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.”

Note: Pure in Hebrew is tsaraph which means refined, purified, tested, proven true; - it occurs about 33 times in the Old Testament. For this reason, filthy and corrupt people do not like the Word of God. Crooks and criminals and corrupt officials do not like the Word of God.

Mar 7:13, “Making the Word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.”

Note: Tradition in Greek is paradosis which means a giving over which is done by word of mouth or in writing, tradition by instruction, precept, narrative, etc., of the body of precepts, especially ritual, which in the opinion of the later Jews were orally delivered by Moses and orally transmitted in unbroken succession to subsequent generations, which precepts, both illustrating and expanding the written law, as they did were to be obeyed with equal reverence; - it occurs about 13 times in the New Testament. Traditions of man may be opposite to the divine teachings. In Jesus’time, Pharisees used rituals and traditions to nullify the Word of God. The Chinese have many customs and traditions which are contrary to the Word of God. You cannot call yourself a Christian and worship idols as the leader of Taiwan does. If you are a Buddhist or Taoist, then you are not a Christian. Buddhists and Taoists may become Christians, Christians can never become Buddhists or Taoists or other religions.

Isa 40:8,“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.”

Note: Men are like grasses wither, beautiful women are like flowers fade.

Stand in Hebrew is quwm which means to stand up, maintain oneself, endure, persist, establish, stand firm, be valid, stand fast; - it occurs 628 times in the Old Testament. Empires crumble, riches fly away, everything in the world passes away, but the Word of God stands forever.

Luk 3:2,“While Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the Word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.”

Note: For a prophet, the most important thing is that the Word of God comes to him, it does not matter where he is, city or wilderness. Now the revelation of Jesus Christ is complete, no one can say the Word of God comes to him which is different from what is already written in the Bible. It still can happen from time to time God may speak to individuals in terms of special revelation. A special revelation cannot contradict the general revelation. For example, if you claim God spoke to you that Jesus Christ will return on July 11, 2011 – you must be a false prophet because Jesus Christ makes it clear, 

Mat 24:36,“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” When Jesus Christ made this statement He was in a humble state on earth, I believe after the resurrection and ascension the exalted Jesus Christ knows that day and hour when He returns. For Jesus Christ says, 

Rev 22:12,“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.” Work in Greek is ergon which means an act, deed, thing done; - it occurs about 176 times in the New Testament. The Lord will judge people according to his thought, word and deed.

Luk 5:1,“So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the Word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret.”

Note: Press in Greek is epikeimai which means to be urgent; - it occurs only 7 times in the New Testament. When Jesus Christ spoke, God spoke. The Word of Jesus Christ is the Word of God. Do you feel urgent to know the Word of God?

Luk 8:11,“Now the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God.

Note: Parable in Greek is parabolē which means a placing of one thing by the side of another, comparison of one thing with another, similitude, an example by which a doctrine or precept is illustrated, an earthly story with a heavenly meaning; - it occurs about 50 times in the New Testament. When the Bible says it is a parable, it should be treated as a parable. Jesus Christ compares the Word of God with the seed. The seed is serving as the figure of the Word of God. The explanation below given by Jesus Christ is most interesting and instructive. What kind of people are you?

Luk 8:12,“Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the Word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.”

Note: The work of the devil is to take the Word out of the hearts of men. Make sure you do not have an evil heart of unbelief, so that you should believe and be saved.

Luk 8:21,“But He answered and said to them: My mother and My brothers are these who hear the Word of God and do it.”

Note: Jesus Christ elevates those who hear the Word of God and do it as His mother and brothers. Obedience to God is much more important than human relationship.

Luk 11:28,“But He said: More than that, blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it!

Note: Keep in Greek is phylassō which means to guard i.e. care for, take care not to violate, observe; - it occurs about 30 times in the New Testament.  Blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it. Spiritual blessings are much more than material blessings.

Act 4:31,“And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.”

Note: Boldness in Greek is parrēsia which means freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech, openly, frankly, i.e. without concealment, without ambiguity or circumlocution, fearless confidence; - it occurs about 31 times in the New Testament. To be filled with the Holy Spirit is not to display one’s special status or superiority before God, it is to receive power from above to speak the Word of God with boldness. The Bible says: all have sinned and come short of the glory of God; there is no exception, including you and me, including Gandhi or your country most revered leader. The wages of sin is death; if you have no sin you will not die. You will die because you have sinned; but the gift of God in Christ is eternal life. We should speak the Word of God with boldness.

Act 6:2,“Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said: It is not desirable that we should leave the Word of God and serve tables.”

Note: Desirable in Greek is arestos which means pleasing, agreeable, fit, proper; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Few things are desirable; most things are undesirable in this world. To preach the Word of God is most desirable, this does not mean everyone is going to be a preacher or pastor. Not everyone is called to be a preacher, but every Christian is a witness for Christ. The Twelve Apostles were very special, called and chosen by God to preach the Word of God. For them to do anything else would be not desirable, not proper; it does not mean to serve tables are undesirable. Whatever God appoints you to do is desirable and proper. In Jesus time there were slaves, there were slaves who became Christians, but they were the Lord’s slaves.

Act 6:4But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the Word.”

Note: Ministry in Greek is diakonia which means service of those who by the command of God proclaim and promote the Gospel among men, the office of the apostles and its administration; - it occurs about 34 times in the New Testament. Apostles were called to the ministry of the Word, engaged in the work of inducing men to embrace the offered reconciliation with God through the redemption of Jesus Christ. There are people today who are called to preach the Word. Occupational preachers are miserable people; preachers of prosperity gospel are false preachers. Those who merchandize the Gospel for profit are the enemies of the cross.

Act 6:7,“Then the Word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.”

Note: Multiply in Greek is plēthynō which means to increase, abound; - it occurs about 12 times in the New Testament. There are preachers who evangelize in order to build themselves spiritual empires as inheritance to their children. There are preachers who build mega-churches for money and glory. The Word of God is spread so that people can be saved, and believers become obedient to the faith. Faith is demonstrated and proven by obedience.

Act 10:36,“The Word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all.”

Note: Lord in Greek is kyrios which means the title given to God, the Messiah; - it occurs about 748 times in the New Testament. It is much more than the relationship between a master and his slaves. Jesus Christ is the Lord of all, the Lord of the universe.

Jhn 3:34, “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.”

Note: Measure in Greek is metron which means limited quantity or quality, determined extent; - it occurs about 13 times in the New Testament. Jesus Christ has power, wisdom, honor, glory, etc. without measure. Without measure means cannot be measured.

Act 11:1,“Now the apostles and brethren who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the Word of God.

Note: Receive in Greek is dechomai which means to take hold of, take up, give ear to, embrace, accept, make one’s own; - it occurs about 59 times in the New Testament. Gentiles are all non-Jews. The Gospel must be received by the Jews and Gentiles alike in order to be saved.

Act 12:24,“But the Word of God grew and multiplied.

Note: Grow in Greek is auxanō which means to increase, become greater; - it occurs in the New Testament about 22 times. Now you ask: Can the Word of God grow? Remember to apply the principle of letting the Bible to interpret the Bible. Do you remember the Word of Jesus? 

Luk 8:11,“Now the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God.” It means the number of people who believed in Jesus Christ grew and multiplied.

Act 13:5,“And when they arrived in Salamis, they preached the Word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. They also had John as their assistant.”

Note: In the beginning Jesus Christ taught in the temple and Jewish synagogues. The apostles and early disciples also preached the Word of God in the temple and synagogues of the Jews and also at homes and everywhere. Christian meeting places were later established separate from the synagogues of the Jews.

Act 13:7,“Who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the Word of God.

Note: Intelligent in Greek is synetos which means having understanding, wise, learned, prudent; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Seek in Greek is epizēteō which means to seek for, search for, seek diligently, wish for, crave; - it occurs about 14 times in the New Testament. An intelligent man should seek to hear the Word of God.

Act 13:44,“On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the Word of God.

Note: For the Jews, Sabbath was a good day because it was a day of rest to come together to hear the Word of God. It was remarkable that almost the whole city of Antioch came together to hear the Word of God via evangelists Paul and Barnabas even without the organization of an evangelistic campaign, without inviting dignitaries, movie or sport stars, and without entertainment. American mega-churches use Hollywood style entertainment to attract crowds.

Act 13:46,“Then Paul and Barnabas grew bold and said: It was necessary that the Word of God should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles.”

Note: Reject in Greek is apōtheō  which means to thrust away, push away, repel, repudiate, refuse; - it occurs only 6 times in the New Testament. Those who reject the Word of God judge themselves unworthy of everlasting life. It is not God who rejects anyone; it is those who reject the Word of God judge themselves unworthy of everlasting life. Terrible is the truth that it is possible to judge yourselves unworthy, count yourselves out, condemn yourselves to eternal punishment.

Rom 9:6-8,“But it is not that the Word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel who are of Israel, nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, in Isaac your seed shall be called. That is, those who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted as the seed.”

Note: This Scriptures explain why some Jews rejected Christ and why many Gentiles do not believe. The seed of Abraham means the descendant of Abraham. It is not that the Word of God is not effective, it is because they are not all Israel who are of Israel. If you do not believe because you are not a sheep of Jesus, you are not a child of God. The children of the flesh are not the children of God. There are only two kinds of people in the world: the children of the flesh and the children of God. If you are a child of the flesh, you are not a child of God.

2Cr 2:17,“For we are not, as so many, peddling the Word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.”

Note: Peddle in Greek is kapēleuō which means to be a retailer, make money by selling anything, trade in the Word of God, try to get base gain by teaching divine truth; corrupt, adulterate; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. It is sinful to handle the Word of God deceitfully as many theologians and Bible scholars do today. I believe it is wrong to trade in the Word of God, or to try to get base gain by teaching the divine truth. For example, it is wrong to copyright the Bible, it is also wrong to adulterate the Word of God by making your special version of the Bible to make money – the Bible according to guru so and so. Something is seriously wrong with any preacher or Bible scholar who gets rich by peddling the Word of God. There were so many who did that during Paul’s times, there are even more today in particular in the United States – the cesspool of capitalism.

Eph 6:17,“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.

Note: Sword in Greek is machaira which means a weapon for making or repelling an attack, a weapon of war; - it occurs about 29 times in the New Testament. The sword of the Spirit is the sword with which the Spirit subdues the impulse to sin and proves it power and efficacy in destroying false doctrines and falsehoods. Jesus defeated the temptations of the devil by the Word of God.

1Ti 4:5,“For it is sanctified by the Word of God and prayer.”

Note: The Word of God has power to sanctify our hearts and souls. The best of books may inspire people, but never sanctify people. The worst of books indulge people to sin and lust and greed.

2Ti 2:9,“For which I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even to the point of chains; but the Word of God is not chained.

Note: Chain in Greek is deō which means to bind, tie, fasten with chains, hinder; - it occurs about 44 times in the New Testament. There is nothing in the world which can bind, chain or hinder the Word of God. Why?

Hbr 4:12,“For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Note: Living in Greek is zaō which means having vital power in itself, to be in full vigor, strong, efficient, active, powerful, efficacious; - it occurs about 143 times in the New Testament. Powerful in Greek is energēs which means active, effectual; - it occurs only 3 times in the New Testament. There exists division of soul and spirit, but we do not know about it. We do not know much about earthly things, we do no know even more heavenly things. Discerner in Greek is kritikos  which means fit for judging, skilled in judging; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. A person who is skilled in the Word of God is also skilled in judging between truth and falsehood, right and wrong, good and evil.

3. The Word of God is also called the Word.

Mar 4:19,“And the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful.”

Note: There are three things that choke the Word and make it unfruitful:

the cares of this world, the deceitful of riches, and the desires for other things. Choke in Greek is sympnigō which means to press round or throng one so as almost to suffocate; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. The more a person is worldly, the more a person loves the world and the things of the world, the less likely he becomes a fruitful believer. For this reason, Jesus says, 

Mar 10:25, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God.” A thousand richest people in America have more money than one billion poorest people in the world. There maybe some Christians among the thousand richest persons in America, will these Christians give away their wealth for the cause of Christ? On the contrary, there are millions who want to be rich believing God would prosper them if they give offerings as many prosperity preachers suggest.

Jhn 1:14,“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Note: Although the word “Word” used in Mar 4:19 and Jhn 1:14 are the same word logos in the original language, but it has a different meaning. It is important to distinguish the Word as the Written Word - usually refers to as the Scripture or Scriptures or the Bible, the Word of God. The Word also means Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Word of God, God who became Man – the Living Word. Mar 4:19 refers to the Word of God that came out of the mouth of God, while Jhn 1:14 refers to the Second Person of the Trinity who became Man. Jesus Christ is the Word of God.

Rev 19:13, He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.One of the names of Jesus Christ who died for sinners is called The Word of God. As the Bible is the Written Word of God, so Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God. The Living Word of God is the Eternal Word of God.

Col 4:3,“Meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the Word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains.”

Note: Mystery in Greek is mystērion  which means the hidden or secret thing, God’s plan of providing salvation for mankind through Jesus Christ was once hidden but now is revealed; - it occurs about 27 times in the New Testament. To speak the Word of the Gospel is to speak the mystery of Christ.

1Ti 5:17,“Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the Word and doctrine.”

Note: Doctrine in Greek is didaskalia which means that which is taught, instruction, body of Christian faith; - it occurs about 21 times in the New Testament. Those who truly preach Jesus Christ and labor in teaching and instructing people the Word of God and doctrine of Jesus Christ are worthy of honor.

2Ti 4:2,Preach the Word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”

Note: Preach in Greek is kēryssō which means to proclaim, publish; - it occurs about 61 times in the New Testament. In obedience to Christ and in a humble way, I preach the Word by proclaiming and publishing through the Internet. The methodology of preaching is to convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. Convince in Greek is elegchō which means to convict, refute, confute, bring to the light, expose, find fault with, show one his fault, correct; - it occurs about 17 times in the New Testament. Rebuke in Greek is epitimaō which means to chide, reprove, censure severely, admonish or charge sharply; - it occurs about 29 times in the New Testament. Exhort in Greek is parakaleō which means to admonish, address, speak to with directness; - it occurs about 109 times in the New Testament. You can see why preaching against sin cannot make one popular.

Tts 1:3,“But has in due time manifested His Word through preaching, which was committed to me according to the commandment of God our Savior.”

Note: Manifest in Greek is phaneroō which means to make known by teaching; - it occurs 49 times in the New Testament. The Word of God can only be made known by preaching and teaching. God our Savior commands believers to preach the Gospel to every creature.

1Pe 2:2,“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby.”

Note: Just as the infant needs milk to grow, so the babes in Christ need the pure milk of the Word to grow thereby. It is the task of preachers to preach the fundamentals of the Christian faith. There are so many failed preachers in many churches because the congregations are not fed with the pure milk of the Word. 

Eph 4:15,“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all things into Him who is the Head, into Christ.”

Note: We are to grow up in all things into Him who is the Head. The Head of the church is Jesus Christ, not the pope or any man.

2Pe 3:7,“But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same Word, are reserved for fire until the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”

Note: Christ holds the heavens (universe) and earth together by His power. The heavens and earth will be burned up by fire on the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men. Perdition in Greek is apōleia which means utter destruction, ruin, the destruction which consists of eternal misery in hell; - it occurs about 20 times in the New Testament. All who rejected Christ are ungodly men. The end of ungodly men is perdition.

1Jo 2:5,“But whoever keeps His Word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.”

Note: To love God you must keep His Word. Keep in Greek is tēreō which means to observe, preserve and stand firm, hold fast, follow; - it occurs about 75 times in the New Testament. Jesus says, 

Jhn 14:15“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”

Col 4:3,“Meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the Word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains.”

4. The Word of God is the Word of truth.

2Ti 2:15,“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Note: Rightly divide in Greek is orthotomeō which means to proceed on straight paths, hold a straight course, make straight and smooth, handle aright, teach the truth directly and correctly; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Many false teachers err in dividing the Old Testament and the New Testament. It is important to know the Old Testament was the dispensation of law, while the New Testament is the dispensation of grace.

Psa 119:160,“The entirety of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.”

Note: The Bible does not only contain truth, the Bible is truth.

2Cr 6:7,“By the Word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left.”

Note: The Bible is the Word of truth. Scientific truth is temporal and tentative, the truth of God is absolute and eternal.

Eph 1:13,“In Him you also trusted, after you heard the Word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.”

Note: The Gospel of your salvation is the Word of truth. The only proof that you are saved is that you are sealed with the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit lives in you.

Jam 1:18,Of His own will He brought us forth by the Word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.”

5. The Word of God is the Word of salvation.

Act 13:26,“Men and brethren, sons of the family of Abraham, and those among you who fear God, to you the Word of this salvation has been sent.”

Note: Salvation in Greek is sōtēria which means salvation as the present possession of all true Christians as forgiveness of sins and new birth (salvation of soul); future salvation, the sum of benefits and blessings which the Christians, redeemed from all earthly ills of body, to enjoy after the visible return of Christ from heaven in the consummated and eternal Kingdom of God - it occurs about 45 times in the New Testament. The Word of salvation explains the way of salvation. The way of salvation is the way of God. Salvation is not what man can earn by merit or good deeds. No one is good enough to go to heaven; everyone is bad enough to go to hell. There is no difference whether it is Gandhi or Lincoln. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Salvation if a gift of God to whoever accepts and believes in the Son of God who came into the world to save sinners. You are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

6. The Word of God is also called the Word of the Kingdom.

Mat 13:19,“When anyone hears the Word of the Kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside.”

Note: The Kingdom is the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of heaven. The wicked one does not want you to enter the Kingdom of God.

Jhn 18:36, “Jesus answered: My Kingdom is not of this world. If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My Kingdom is not from here.” If you seek the kingdom of this world, you are not following Jesus. For that reason, imperialists, colonialists, hegemonists, capitalists, terrorists, etc. are not Christians and cannot be Christians. 

Rev 11:15,“Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying: The kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” America, Britain, China, India, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, etc. will soon vanish and disappear and become the Kingdom of our Lord and His Christ.

Human knowledge is of this world, the knowledge of God is heavenly and eternal.

7. The Word is also called the Word of His grace.

Act 14:3,“Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the Word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

Note: Grace in Greek is charis which means the merciful kindness by which God, exerting His holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, makes them grow in Christian faith, knowledge, love, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues; - it occurs about 156 times in the New Testament. The Word of God is the Word of His grace because by which we are saved in Jesus Christ. Although nowadays signs and wonders are granted sparingly and rarely, but there is no reason why you do not accept the Word of His grace.

8. The Word is also called the Word of the Gospel.

Act 15:7,“And when there had been much dispute, Peter rose up and said to them: Men and brethren, you know that a good while ago God chose among us, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the Word of the Gospel and believe.”

Note: Dispute in Greek is syzētēsis which means mutual questioning, disputation, discussion; - it occurs only 3 times in the New Testament. There are people who want to demonstrate their intelligence; they like to argue about everything, they want to argue with God. There have been heated arguments about healthcare reform in America, but few dare to speak the truth and point to the fraudulent and predatory nature of healthcare system as the root cause of the high costs of American healthcare.
Col 1:5, “Because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the Word of the truth of the Gospel.”

Note: The hope of believers is laid up in heaven, not on the earth. Peoples of nations are desperate because they do not see hope in their future. The Gospel of Jesus is the Word of the truth.

9. The Word is also called the Word of life.

Phl 2:16,“Holding fast the Word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.”

Note: Those who hold fast the Word of life, do not run in vain or labor in vain. Those who live without God and without the Word of life, someday will discover they have run in vain or labored in vain. Isn’t it terrible to come to the end, the rich and powerful of the world realize they have run in vain and labored in vain. Those who seek money, power and sex will run in vain and labor in vain in the end.

10. The Word of God is also called the Scripture.

The Bible is the Word of God, a single passage or verse is called Scripture, and the whole body of holy writings is called the Scriptures.

Dan 9:2,“In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the Word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years.”

Note: Scriptures in Hebrew is cepher which means books, scrolls, a scroll of a book, books of prophecy, books of the canon, holy books; - it occurs about 184 times in the Old Testament. The same original word is used in

Exd 17:14,“Then the LORD said to Moses: Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.”

Note: This was the origin of the Bible, God told Moses to write it. The same word is used in 

Exd 24:7,“Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said: All that the LORD has said we will do, and be obedient.”

Note: A portion of the Old Testament was called the Book of the Covenant. The same word is used in 

Deu 31:24-26,“So it was, when Moses had completed writing the words of this law in a book, when they were finished, that Moses commanded the Levites, who bore the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying: Take this Book of the Law, and put it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there as a witness against you.”

Note: Probably by this time, the Penteteuch (five books of Moses) was completed. The same word is used in Jos 1:8, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.”

Note: By the time of Joshua, the successor of Moses, the Penteteuch or the Book of the Law must have been completed. So the books of Moses were called the Book of the Law, or the Book of the Law of Moses, or the Book of the Law of God, or the Book of the Law of the LORD, or the Scriptures. Other books mentioned in the Old Testament such as the Book of Jasher,    

the Book of Nathan, the Book of Gad, the book of Shemaiah, etc. were authentic historical books, but they were not treated as the Scriptures. Prosper in Hebrew is tsalach which means to make progress, succeed, be profitable, go on well; - it occurs about 65 times in the Old Testament. To have good success in Hebrew is sakal which means to be successful in doing anything; - it occurs about 63 times in the Old Testament.

Dan 10:21,“But I will tell you what is noted in the Scripture of Truth. No one upholds me against these, except Michael your prince.”

Note: Scripture in Hebrew is kathab which means writing, a book; - it occurs about 17 times in the Old Testament. The Bible is the Scripture of Truth.

2Ki 23:21,“Then the king commanded all the people, saying: Keep the Passover to the LORD your God, as it is written in this Book of the Covenant.”

Note: As it is written becomes known as referring to the Scriptures. Nothing else written is more important than what is written in the Bible.

Mat 21:42,“Jesus said to them: Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?”

Note: Read in Greek is anaginōskō which means to know accurately, recite; - it occurs about 33 times in the New Testament. Reading is a profitable activity; it should be cultivated from childhood. Nowadays too much time is wasted on watching TV. Reading the Scriptures has benefits for this life and the life to come. Scriptures in Greek is graphē which means the Scripture, used to denote either the book itself, or its contents, a certain portion or section of the Holy Scripture; - it occurs about 51 times in the New Testament. The same original word used in Mat 21:42 is also used in 

1Cr 15:3-4,“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” Everything we believe is according to the Scriptures. Christianity is based totally on the Scriptures. The two Scriptural truths are the foundation of Christianity: Jesus Christ died for our sins and He rose from death for our justification.

Jhn 6:45,It is written in the prophets: AND THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT OF GOD. Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me.”

Note: Jesus often uses the formula, ‘It is written’. But careful, the devil can also use the same formula to distort the Word of God.

Mat 22:29“Jesus answered and said to them: You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures or the power of God.”

Note: To be mistaken in Greek is planaō which means to lead away from the truth, lead into error, deceive, err; - it occurs about 39 times in the New Testament. People who do not know the Scriptures or the power of God are wrong or bound to be wrong. Unbelieving and arrogant scientists do not know that they are mistake.

Mat 26:56,“But all this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures of the prophets. Then all the disciples left Him and fled.”

Note: Fulfil in Greek is plēroō which means to bring to pass, ratify, accomplish; - it occurs about 90 times in the New Testament. True prophecies always came true, false prophecies never come true.

Mar 15:28,“So the Scripture was fulfilled which says: And He was numbered with the transgressors.”

Note: The transgressors refer to the two robbers; Jesus was crucified among the two robbers.

Luk 24:27,“Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.”

Note: From Moses to all the prophets in all the Scriptures, Jesus Christ is the central message of God to mankind – the Messiah, the Christ.

Jesus Christ used the Bible (the Old Testament, at that time the New Testament did not exist yet) to explain the things concerning Himself. The central message of the Bible is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who was sent to the world to die for the sins of mankind so that those who repent and believe in Him may have the eternal life by the grace of God.

Luk 24:45,“Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.”

Note: Open the mind in Greek is dianoigō which means to open the mind of one, i.e. to cause to understand a thing; - it occurs only 8 times in the New Testament. This explains why otherwise intelligent scientists and scholars could not understand the Scriptures. 

2Cr 4:4,“Whose minds the god of this world has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.” Understand in Greek is syniēmi which means to bring together, put the perception with the thing perceived, set or join together in the mind, spiritual insight; - it occurs about 26 times in the New Testament. No matter who you are, unless the good Lord opens your mind, you cannot understand the Scriptures. The Scriptures are divine; the carnal mind cannot understand it.

Jhn 2:22,“Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the Word which Jesus had said.”

Note: The Christian faith is based on the Scripture (the Old Testament) and the Word of Jesus (the New Testament).

Jhn 5:39,“You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me.”

Note: Search in Greek is eraunaō  which means to examine into, look through, examine closely and carefully; - it occurs only 6 times in the New Testament. All the articles I have presented on my website are based on the methodology of searching what the Scriptures say about the subject matter. Testify in Greek is martyreō which means to bear witness, certify as true, affirm by divine inspiration or revelation; - it occurs about 79 times in the New Testament. The Scriptures (Old and New Testaments) testify about Jesus.

Jhn 7:38,“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Note: As the Scripture has said, it is so. As it is written, it is so.

Jhn 7:42,“Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”

Note: What the Scripture has said about David was true; David was a real historical person. What the Scripture has said about Bethlehem was true because Bethlehem was and is a real place.

Jhn 10:35,“If He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came and the Scripture cannot be broken.”

Note: Break in Greek is lyō which means to break up, dismiss, annul, subvert, do away with, demolish, overthrow, destroy, deprive of authority; - it occurs about 43 times in the New Testament. You can burn the Bible, but you cannot destroy it. You can tear the Bible to pieces, but you cannot demolish it. The Scripture cannot be broken.

Jhn 13:18,“I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He who eats bread with Me has lifted up his heel against Me.”

Note: Jesus knew from the beginning whom would betray Him. Everything happened as the Scripture said it would happen so that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

Jhn 17:12,“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.”

Note: None of believers in Christ would be lost except the son of perdition, the traitor Judas. If you reject Jesus Christ, you will be a child of perdition too.

Jhn 19:28,“After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said: I thirst!”

Note: Divine knowledge is perfect knowing, knowing the end from the beginning. Nothing takes God by surprise; everything that must be accomplished was accomplished or will be accomplished.

Jhn 19:36,“For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled: Not one of His bones shall be broken.”

Note: The Roman soldiers broke the legs of the two robbers; they did not break the bone of Jesus because the Scripture predicted not one of His bones would be broken. 

Psa 34:20,“He guards all His bones; not one of them is broken.”

Jhn 20:9,“For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.”

Note: As yet the disciples did not know or understand the Scripture that Christ the Savior must die and rise again from the dead. They did not know the Scripture that Jesus died as the Lamb of God for sinners in order to obtain forgiveness and rose from death for our justification before God.

Act 8:32,“The place in the Scripture which he read was this: He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, so He opened not His mouth.”

Note: Later the disciples knew the Scripture.

Act 8:35,“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.”

Note: If a preacher does not preach Jesus Christ, everything else he preaches would not matter. Some preachers like to preach stories of Old Testament because they do not know how to preach the Gospel of Jesus.

Act 17:11,“Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the Word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.”

Note: Eagerness in Greek is prothymia  which means zeal, spirit, inclination, readiness of mind; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. Examine in Greek is anakrino which means to investigate, inquire into, scrutinize, sift, question, look through, search after; - it occurs about 16 times in the New Testament. It is noble-minded to believe the Scriptures and examine to see whether things were so as the Scriptures say. You must not blindly accept what your minister or preacher says, you need to examine whether they are according to the Scriptures. When a preacher says the Bible is not clear whether it is wrong to worship ancestors, he is mistaken and does not know the Scripture. Those pastors who support a political leader who claims to be a Christian and yet he publicly worships idols are mistaken. The right way to examine the Scriptures is to see what the Scriptures say, not what you want to say, not what you think it should say. You must not be guilty of making the Bible to say what the Bible does not say, or make void what the Bible clearly says. Eagerness in Greek is prothymia which means inclination, readiness of mind, zeal, spirit, willingness; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. We must accept the Bible as it is.

Act 18:28, “For he powerfully refuted the Jews in public, demonstrating by the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.”

Note: Apollos was mighty in the Scriptures means he was excelling in the knowledge of the Scriptures. Refute in Greek diakatelegchomai which means to confute with rivalry and effort, prove a person to be in error; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Demonstrate in Greek is epideiknymi which means to exhibit, show, prove; - it occurs about 9 times in the New Testament. Every preacher should be able to prove by the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ – the Messiah. The central message of the Bible is that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, the Savior of the world.

Rom 4:3,“For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

Note: For all Christians, the most important question is: What does the Bible say? It is not what theologians say, it is not what the pastor says, it is not what the leader says, etc. Believe in Greek is pisteu which means to think to be true, place confidence in, trust in Jesus or God as able to aid either in obtaining or in doing something or saving; - it occurs about 248 times in the New Testament. Account in Greek is logizomai which means to reckon, count, impute, consider, deem, take into account, make account of; - it occurs about 41 times in the New Testament. Abraham believed in God, and God counted him or credited to him as righteousness. So man is justified (counted as righteous) by faith in Christ Jesus who died for sinners to fulfill the righteousness of God.

Rom 1:2,“Which He promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures.”

Note: Holy in Greek is hagios which means worthy of veneration, most holy thing, sacred to God; - it occurs 229 times in the New Testament. Holy Scriptures are the Word of God and should be treated as holy. For that reason Christians should not make fun of the Word of God and quote the Bible in a jest.

Rom 9:17,“For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh: For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”

Note: The Scripture says, the same way we say the Bible says. The Scripture says what God says. The Scripture exalts the power of God.

Rom 10:11,“For the Scripture says: Whoever believes in Him will not be put to shame.”

Note: When we do not quote the Bible exactly with the book and verse, we can say the Scripture says, or the Bible says. Whoever in Greek is pas which means all, every, any, everybody; - it occurs about 1,243 times in the New Testament. God’s grace is for everyone, everyone or anyone (without restriction) who believes in Jesus Christ will not be put to shame. Anyone and everyone who comes to Jesus Christ for salvation will not be cast out. For Jesus assures the world, 

Jhn 6:37,“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.”

No matter how wicked and sinful you are, if you repent and believe in Jesus Christ, He will not throw you out but save you and save you to the end.

Gal 3:8,“And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the Gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying: In you all the nations shall be blessed.”

Note: Foresee in Greek is proorao  which means to see before as respects to time or place, know beforehand, see ahead; - it occurs only 2 times in the New Testament. God foresees everything from beginning to the end. There is nothing that takes God by surprise. God preached the Gospel to Abraham. All who believe like Abraham believed would be justified or to be counted as righteous before God.  

Gal 3:22,“But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.”

Note: Confine in Greek is sygkleiō  which means to shut up together, enclose, shut up on all sides, shut up completely, consign, include; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Sin is like a big prison, the Scripture has put all in the prison of sin; for all have sinned.

1Ti 5:18,“For the Scripture says: You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain, and, the laborer is worthy of his wages.”

Note: The evil of capitalism has a lot to do with unfair wages. Wall Street hedge fund managers gamble on others’money and make several billion a year. Corporate executives give themselves hefty compensations and perks and bonuses. Doctors and hospital owners suck the blood of patients with predatory and fraudulent practices. Lawyers by monopoly and flawed legal system get big pay, capitalizing on crime and kangaroo courts. Most government and unionized workers and white workers are overpaid, blacks are given preferential treatment because of Affirmative Action, all the rest have been underpaid. There are still millions who earn the minimum wage of $7.30 to $10 an hour.

2Ti 3:16,“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”

Note: Given by inspiration of God in Greek is theopneustos which means inspired by God; it occurs only once in the New Testament. The contents of Scripture are inspired by God. Even the best and greatest books in the world cannot be said to be inspired by God. Profitable in Greek is ōphelimos  which means gaining or yielding benefit; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Doctrine in Greek is didaskalia which means systematized teaching or instruction, that which is taught as a creed or fundamental principle or precept of faith; - it occurs about 21 times in the New Testament. Inspiration of the Bible, Pre-existence of Christ, Incarnation, the Virgin Birth, the Divinity of Christ, Crucifixion, Resurrection, Ascension, Justification, Regeneration, Sanctification and the Second Coming are basic doctrines of Christianity. Reproof in Greek is elegchos which means conviction, the inward result of proving; - it occurs only twice in the New Testament. The Scripture is the effective tool or the Sword of the Spirit to convict a man of his sins. Correction in Greek is epanorthōsis which means restoration to an upright or right state, rectification, improvement of life or character; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Instruction in Greek is paideia which means the whole training and education of children, whatever in adults also cultivates the soul, esp. by correcting mistakes and curbing passions; instruction which aims at increasing virtue; admonition; - it occurs only 6 times in the New Testament.

Jam 2:8,“If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture: You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well.”

Note: The royal law means the chief or principal law according to the Scripture. The royal law is to love your neighbor as yourself. If you fulfill the royal law, you do well. Compare the religions of hatred and hostility and revenge with the Christian law of love, you should be able to know the truth. Imperialism, colonialism, hegemonism, capitalism, terrorism, etc. are contrary to the royal law of the Scripture.

Jam 4:5,“Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously?”

Note: The Scripture never says in vain. What man says may be in vain, what God says has consequence. 

Jhn 8:24,“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He (Christ), you will die in your sins.” If you do not believe in Jesus Christ, you will die in your sins. This is not what I said; this is what Jesus Christ said. If you do not believe it, you take the risk on your life. Not only you will die in your sins, you will suffer for eternity. Why not turn around and have the hope of glory? Jesus Christ is coming again soon to reign with the saints forever and ever.

11.  The seriousness and sanctity of the Word of God.

Deu 4:2,“You shall not add to the Word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”

Note: Add in Hebrew is yacaph which means to increase, change the quantity and size, change the total effect; - it occurs about 213 times in the Old Testament. Take from in Hebrew is gara` which means to diminish, subtract, restrain, withdraw, abate, keep back, do away, take from, clip, scrape off; - it occurs about 21 times in the Old Testament. Years ago the Reader’s Digest published a condensed Bible. I believe they had violated the commandment of God.

1Sa 3:1,“Now the boy Samuel ministered to the LORD before Eli. And the Word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.”

Note: This Scripture gives a background situation of the period when Eli was the priest. The Word of the Lord was rare and there was no widespread revelation. Rare in Hebrew is yaqar which means scarce, uncommon, infrequent; - it occurs about 36 times in the Old Testament. Widespread means frequent. Revelation in Hebrew is chazown which means a divine revelation, an oracle, vision; - it occurs about 35 times in the Old Testament. When God was displeased with Eli, the Word of the Lord was rare and divine revelation was infrequent. When God is displeased with a church, the church is without the power from on high and the preacher is useless.

1Sa 3:7,“Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, nor was the Word of the LORD yet revealed to him.”

Note: Reveal in Hebrew here is galah which means to uncover, disclose, discover, lay bare, make known a secret, show, manifest; - it occurs about 188 times in the Old Testament. Little boy Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor was the Word of the Lord yet revealed to him. Those who do not know the Lord also do not understand the Word of God. Christianity is the revealed religion; you cannot know Jesus Christ by your own effort or wisdom or intelligence.

1Sa 15:23,“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of the LORD, He also has rejected you from being king.”

Note: Rebellion in Hebrew is mĕriy which means contumacy, insubordination, disobedience, stubborn refusal to submit; - it occurs about 23 times in the Old Testament. Witchcraft in Hebrew is qecem which means divination, it occurs only 11 times in the Old Testament. Stubbornness in Hebrew is patsar which means insolence, arrogance, presumption; - it occurs only 7 times in the Old Testament. Iniquity in Hebrew is 'aven which means wickedness, trouble, sorrow, emptiness, vanity; - it occurs about 78 times in the Old Testament. Idolatry in Hebrew is tĕraphiym which means a kind of idol used in household shrine or worship, of human figure and stature; - it occurs about 15 times in the Old Testament. It should be noted, rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. In the New Testament, greed is as the sin of idolatry. Reject in Hebrew is ma'ac which means to refuse, despise, loathe, abhor; - it occurs about 76 times in the Old Testament. Saul rejected the Word of the Lord, and the Lord also rejected him from being king over Israel. Those who reject the Word of the Lord will be rejected by the Lord.

1Ki 13:26,“Now when the prophet who had brought him back from the way heard it, he said: It is the man of God who was disobedient to the Word of the LORD. Therefore the LORD has delivered him to the lion, which has torn him and killed him, according to the Word of the LORD which He spoke to him.”

Note: How serious is the Word of the Lord: The man of God who was disobedient to the Word of the Lord, therefore the Lord delivered him to the lion which had torn him and killed him according to the Word of the Lord which He spoke to him. In fact, the first sin committed by Adam and Eve was not eating the forbidden fruit; they were disobedient to the Word of the Lord. Disobedience to God’s Word is disobedient to God.

1Ki 17:16,24,“The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the Word of the LORD which He spoke by Elijah...

Then the woman said to Elijah: Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the Word of the LORD in your mouth is the truth.”

Note: The miracle of the bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry was very interesting. All was done according to the Word of the Lord which is the truth.

1 King Chapter 22 is a very interesting historical chapter about the evil king of Israel Ahab who did not want to listen to the Word of God. King Ahab put the prophet Micaiah in prison and ordered to feed him with bread of affliction and water of affliction. 

1Ki 22:28,“But Micaiah said: If you ever return in peace, the LORD has not spoken by me. And he said: Take heed, all you people!” To make the long story short, 

1Ki 22:37-38,“So the king died, and was brought to Samaria. And they buried the king in Samaria. Then someone washed the chariot at a pool in Samaria, and the dogs licked up his blood while the harlots bathed, according to the Word of the LORD which He had spoken.” What happened to the evil king Ahab was according to the Word of the Lord which He had spoken. Not only Ahab died, he died according to the Word of the Lord the way he died.

2 King Chapter 9 records how Jezebel the wicked wife of Ahab died as the Word of the Lord said.

2Ki 9:33-37,“He said: Throw her down. So they threw her down; and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses, and they trampled on her. Then he went in and ate and drank; and he said: See now to this cursed woman, and bury her; for she is a king's daughter. But when they went to bury her, they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. When they came back and told him, he said: This is the Word of the LORD, which He spoke by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, On the plot of ground at Jezreel dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel; and the corpse of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the territory of Jezreel, so that no one can say: Here lies Jezebel.”

Note: Curse in Hebrew is 'arar which means to lay under a curse, put a curse on, be made a curse, abhor, detest; - it occurs about 63 times in the Old Testament. The Word of the Lord always came true. Probably Jezebel was the most evil woman - abusive of power, greedy, wicked, merciless, unjust, corrupt and hostile to God – in the history of mankind with most tragic end.

Zec 12:1,“The burden of the Word of the LORD against Israel. Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.”

Note: The prophet Zechariah through the Word of Lord knew about God stretching out the heavens (universe) some 500 B.C. long before the scientists who recently discovered the expanding universe.

Mat 4:4,“But He answered and said: It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”

Note: It is true the Bible is affected by language and culture of the nation. Jesus said: Man shall not live by bread alone because the Jews ate bread. If Jesus said: Man shall not live by rice alone, the Jews would not understand. So the word ‘bread’simply means food. Man does not live by food alone, although many live to eat. Linguistic limitation and cultural inadequacy do not limit the Word of God. The Word of God proceeds from the mouth of God, so it is most serious and sacred. Men must heed and obey the Word of God.

Jud 1:11,“Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.”

Note: Cain, Balaam and Korah serve as historical warnings to those who rejected and rebelled against the Word of God. 

1Jo 3:12,“Not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous.” Western imperialism and hegemonism, and all terrorism are the way of Cain. Power politics is the way of Cain. Wall Street has run greedily in the error of Balaam, for profit they defrauded and looted the world. The error of capitalism is the error of Balaam for profit. Prosperity gospel preachers and followers and those who merchandise the Gospel have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit. Rebellion in Greek is antilogia  which means opposition, gainsaying, resistence to authority, contradiction; - it occurs 4 times in the New Testament. This was how Korah and his household and followers perished in rebellion:

Num 16:30-33,“But if the LORD creates a new thing, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the pit, then you will understand that these men have rejected the LORD. Now it came to pass, as he finished speaking all these words, that the ground split apart under them, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, with their households and all the men with Korah, with all their goods. So they and all those with them went down alive into the pit; the earth closed over them, and they perished from among the assembly.”

Note: Those who rebel against God and reject the Lord Jesus Christ will be swallowed up in hell for eternity.

12.  No Scripture is of any private interpretation.

2Pe 1:20-21,“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation. For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” The Bible makes it clear; holy men of God (prophets and apostles) spoke and wrote the Bible. Private in Greek is idios which means pertaining to one's self, one's own, belonging to one's self; - it occurs 113 times in the New Testament. A private interpretation is an interpretation which one thinks our for oneself, opposed to that which the Holy Spirit teaches. Move in Greek is pherō which means to prompt, press on; - it occurs about 64 times in the New Testament. No prophecy of Scripture is a matter of private interpretation. If you want to argue with God, that is not my problem. The Bible is not a matter of private interpretation. The Bible speaks and interprets itself. As an illustration, a black preacher preached political gospel based on his private interpretation. Now his followers admitted he was no saint but a sinner, but his cause was holy. Anyone who preaches a false gospel cannot have a holy cause. Affirmative Action is unholy travesty of justice. No racial group is entitled to preferential treatment. When a race is given preferential treatment, all other races suffer injustice. Black preferential treatment is just as bad as white supremacy. All are equal under God, all are equal under the law. Political gospel, social gospel, feminist gospel, prosperity gospel, possibility gospel, etc. are all false gospels base on private interpretations of false prophets and false teachers.

2 Pe 3:16, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort to their own destruction, as they do also the other Scriptures.”

Note: Hard to understand in Greek is dysnoētos which means difficult to be understood; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Apostle Peter talked about the writings of Apostle Paul containing some things that are hard to understand. Even to the great apostle Peter, there were some things in the Bible hard for him to understand. Do hydrocephalic self-conceited unbelieving scientists and obscure scholars think they could understand everything? Ignorant and unstable people distort the Bible as they do the other Scriptures will bring their own destruction.

Mat 7:15,“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”

Note: Beware of ravenous wolves who appear in sheep’s clothing means people who pretend to be Christians but they are not, pretend to have knowledge of the Bible but they do not, and pretend to be servants of God but they are actually agents of Satan. Ravenous wolves are savage wolves.

Rev 22:18-19,“I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book. And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the Holy City, which are written in this book.”

Note: The Word of God strongly warns and condemns those who add and delete what the Bible says in the form of private interpretation. Years ago the Reader’s Digest published a condensed bible which I believe also violated what this Scripture forbids by “taking away from the words” from the Good Book.

A false Pentecostal preacher not the first time made private interpretations of the Bible by saying divorcing a spouse with Alzheimer’s is justifiable because the disease is “a kind of death.” What a false preacher teaches is not important, what Jesus Christ says matters for time and eternity. Jesus Christ says:

Mat 5:32,“But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery.

Mat 19:9,“And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.

Mar 10:9-12,“Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate. In the house His disciples also asked Him again about the same matter. So He said to them: Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

Luk 16:18,“Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery.”

Christians, there are so many false prophets, false preachers, and false teachers today. Do you follow false preachers or the Lord and Savior?

13.  The Words of Jesus will not pass away.

Mat 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

Note: Pass away in Greek is parerchomai which means to perish, go past, pass by, pass over; - it occurs about 31 times in the New Testament. Everything you have, see, enjoy, etc. will go pass, pass by, pass over, and pass away that means to perish. Everyone and everything in the world will pass away – what people cherish such as money, power and sex will pass away. You may burn the Bibles, but no one can do away the Words of Jesus. Heaven and earth will pass away because there will be a new heaven and a new earth; but the Words of Jesus will by no means pass away. Christians will not kill anyone who burns the Bible; because the Word of God is the Word of truth which fire cannot burn. 

Psa 119:89,“Lamedh. Forever, O LORD, Your Word is settled in heaven.”

Note: Settle in Hebrew is natsab which means to stand, station oneself, take an upright position, stand firm, fix, establish; - it occurs about 75 times in the Old Testament. What God has established no one can destroy.

Isa 40:8,“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.”

Note: Stand in Hebrew is quwm which means to rise up, stand up, maintain oneself, endure, make binding, preserve, continue; - it occurs about 628 times in the Old Testament. Men die, beautiful women fade, empires fall, but the Word of God stands forever.

Luk 1:2,“Just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the Word delivered them to us.”

Note: Eyewitness in Greek is autoptēs which means seeing with one’s own eyes, one who has seen or heard something; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Minister in Greek is hypēretēs  which means a servant, any one ministering or rendering service, any one who aids another in any work, an assistant, the preacher of the Gospel; - it occurs in the New Testament 20 times. The apostles were from the beginning eyewitnesses and ministers of the Word. The Gospels and the Epistles (from Matthew to Revelation) were written by early apostles and disciples who were with the Lord from the beginning, and they were first hand witnesses and ministers of the Word. Thus it is impossible for anyone later to claim new revelation.

Luk 24:19,“And He said to them: What things? So they said to Him: The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and Word before God and all the people.”

Note: Jesus of Nazareth was a Prophet mighty in deed and Word before God and all the people. Mighty in deed because of the countless miracles that Jesus performed. Mighty in Word because there is power in the Word of Jesus. For example: The wind and sea obeyed Jesus. Demons obeyed Jesus’command. Jesus raised Lazarus from death by His Word.

Jhn 15:3,“You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you.”

Note: Clean in Greek is katharos which means pure, purified, like a vine cleansed by pruning and so fitted to bear fruit; - it occurs about 28 times in the New Testament. The Word of Jesus has power to cleanse us and make us fit to serve the Lord.

Eph 5:26,“That He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the Word.”

Note: Sanctify in Greek is hagiazō which means to separate from profane things and dedicate to God, purify by expiation: free from the guilt of sin, purify internally by renewing of the soul; - it occurs about 29 times in the New Testament. Cleanse in Greek is katharizō which means to make clean, free from defilement of sin and from faults, purify from wickedness; - it occurs about 30 times in the New Testament. The Lord Jesus sanctifies and cleanses the church with the washing of water by the Word – by the Word of God.

Luk 9:26,“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father's, and of the holy angels.”

Note: The Words of Jesus are mostly written in the Gospels. Whatever Jesus says is so. I have no respect for those pseudo-intellectuals who call themselves Christians and at the same time declare they believe in evolution. Jesus Christ confirms the creation of Adam and Eve by God’s direct act. Jesus Christ confirms the creation of the universe by God.

No ‘big bang’ or ‘small bang’can invalidate the Words of Jesus.

Jhn 6:68,“But Simon Peter answered Him: Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the Words of eternal life.”

Note: Why there is singular for “word” and plural for “words”? Are there any difference? It is not that I am not aware of the English grammar regarding singular and plural of a noun. I believe what the Scriptures say are far above the elements of linguistic. Whether Jesus says about some specific teaching – word, or a bunch of related teachings – words, it is our duty to listen, believe and obey. Jesus Christ has the Words of eternal life, scientists don’t even know the day of their deaths.

Jhn 20:29,“Jesus said to him: Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

Note: Blessed are those who believe in the Words of Jesus because they are the Words of eternal life.

Act 20:35,“I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the Words of the Lord Jesus, that He said: It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Col 3:16,“Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

Note: Those who are rich in the Word of Christ and in all wisdom is much better than those who are rich in material things. The best kind of singing is singing with grace in your heart to the Lord.

14.  The Lord revealed Himself by the Word of the Lord.

1Sa 3:21,“Then the LORD appeared again in Shiloh. For the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the Word of the LORD.”

Note: Reveal in Hebrew is galah which means to uncover, disclose, make known, show, make bare; - it occurs about 188 times in the Old Testament. This is a fundamental doctrine of Christianity: No one can discover God by his own efforts or wisdom. You cannot discover God unless God reveals Himself to you. God reveals Himself through His Word. Little Samuel did not know God, but God revealed Himself to Samuel by the Word of the Lord. The Bible is the revealed Word of God. The main function of the Word of the Lord is to reveal the Lord.

Deu 29:29,“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

Note: There are two types of thing in the world: the knowable and the unknowable. The secrets things are unknowable and they belong to the Lord our God. God revealed certain things to the children of men through His Word. The Old Testament and the New Testament reveal the secret things that belong to the Lord. 

Jhn 1:17,“For the law was given by Moses; grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” This Scripture explains succinctly the difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament was about the law of Moses. The New Testament is about grace and truth in Jesus Christ. What cannot be fulfilled by the law is fulfilled by grace in Jesus Christ.

Rom 16:25,“Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my Gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began.”

Note: The Gospel of Jesus Christ was a mystery kept secret since the world began, it was made known when God became Man in Jesus Christ. Revelation in Greek is apokalypsis which means laying bare, making naked, disclosure of things before unknown; - it occurs about 18 times in the New Testament. Revelation is a disclosure of divine things before unknown, especially those things relating to the Christian salvation, to be received by faith in Jesus Christ, and through the operation of the Holy Spirit. The revelation was completely written by the early disciples and apostles who were inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Gal 1:12,“For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

Note: The original revelation of Jesus Christ cannot be taught; it must be given or made known by the revelation of Jesus Christ. The holy apostles who wrote the New Testament did not receive it from men, nor was they taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ. The revelation of Jesus Christ was completed some two thousands years ago as it is written in the New Testament from Matthew to Revelation. No one can add to it or subtract from it. It is completed. There cannot be any new revelation contrary to what is already written in the Bible.

Rev 1:1,“THE Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John.”

Note: Revelation focuses mainly on two subjects, salvation and prophecy. Salvation covers salvation of the soul – the first mission of Christ’s first advent, and the salvation of the body – the second mission of Christ’s second coming. Prophecy covers things to come. The most important event to happen in the universe is the second coming of Christ and eschatology regarding things to happen in the last days.

Luk 2:32,“The light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the Light that brings revelation to the Gentiles and Israel.

Eph 1:17,“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.”

Note: To know God you need the Spirit of wisdom and revelation. Unbelieving scientists and scholars do not have the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, that is why they are ignorant about spiritual things.

1Cr 14:26,“How is it then, brethren? Whenever you come together, each of you has a psalm, has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.”

Note: The word ‘revelation’here is the same word used in Rom 16:25. It is important to know that the general revelation was completed as it is written in the New Testament, while the Holy Spirit still may give a special revelation or shed light on a Scripture to any individual. The special revelation will not contradict the general revelation. For example, 

Luk 2:26,“And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ.” The Holy Spirit revealed to Simeon that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. It was a special revelation, and that did not contradict in any way the general revelation about the coming of the Messiah, or the Person and work of the Messiah.

Mat 11:27,“All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.”

Note: This Scripture states the futility of human mind and human efforts to acquire divine knowledge. God is the greatest mystery, and no one knows the Father except the Son, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and the one whom the Son chooses to reveal Him. Jesus Christ reveals God, to know Jesus Christ is to know God.

Psa 98:2,“The LORD has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations.”

Note: God has made known His salvation in Jesus Christ, the righteousness of God has been revealed to the nations.

Isa 40:5,“The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

Note: The prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled in Jesus Christ when He appeared on earth, and the glory of the Lord shall be fully revealed when Jesus Christ returns to reign with the saints forever and ever.

Rom 1:17,“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written: The just shall live by faith.”

Note: This is a cardinal doctrine of Christianity: The Lord reveals Himself through His Word. Without the revelation, the wisest people grope in darkness. The righteousness of God cannot be accomplished by keeping the law of Moses, for no one is able to keep all the law all the time. The righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith because those who put their faith in Christ are counted righteous by God. To be counted righteous is to be counted not guilty. Not by work, but by grace, we are saved by faith in Jesus Christ who fulfilled the righteousness of God for sinners who come to Him to have life.

Rom 3:21,“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets.”

Note: The Law and the Prophets witness that God has revealed the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ apart from the law which is available to all who come and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

1Cr 2:10,“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”

Note: The Holy Spirit was sent to witness for Jesus Christ, to reveal that Jesus Christ is the Savior, and all who believe may receive the eternal life. Do you know the deep things of God? For example, God loves the humankind, but human beings are sinful, unworthy, undesirable, and unlovable. God’s love for unworthy sinners is one deep thing of God. The love of God was demonstrated in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for our sins; this is a deep thing of God. The fact the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ was decreed by God before the world began is a deep thing of God. The fact that the universe is expanding without countless stars and galaxies and the heavens are too vast and impossible to measure is a deep thing of God. The fact the triune God is Self-existent, omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, holy and true, righteous and good, without beginning and without ending, forever and ever is a deep thing of God. With God, nothing is impossible; this is a deep thing of God.

Eph 3:5,“Which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets.”

Note: The way of salvation or the Gospel of Jesus Christ was not known in ages past, but the Holy Spirit revealed to the holy apostles and prophets who were inspired to write the Bible, the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.

Col 1:26,“The mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.”

Note: Mystery in Greek is mystērion which means hidden thing, a hidden purpose or counsel; - it occurs about 27 times in the New Testament. God’s plan of providing salvation for men through Jesus Christ was once hidden but is now revealed. Jesus Christ is the mystery of God which has been hidden from ages past, but now has been revealed to His saints. His saints are His followers dead or alive. Dead saints are those who have fallen asleep in Christ. Living saints are those who are still alive on earth.

1Pe 1:5,“Who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Note: In the first advent, Jesus Christ came to save our souls. When Christ returns the second time, the redemption or salvation of the bodies of the saints will be revealed in the last time. The bodies of the saints will be transformed into spiritual and glorious and immortal bodies. Then the blessed Kingdom of God will be consummated with power and glory forever and ever. Scientific truth is acquired by discovery, the truth of God is obtained by revelation as it is written the Bible.

15.  There are many false teachings about the Bible.

There are infinite varieties of crooked ways; there is only one straight way. There are unlimited false teachings about the Bible; there is only one correct doctrine as the Bible claims to be the Word of God. All false teachings about the Bible are private interpretations. Private interpretations are inspired by the evil spirit and personal ambition of men. Among those false teachings are:

A.  "The Bible is a book written by men."

2Pe 1:21,“For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

No. The Bible is not a book written by men. The Bible was written not by ordinary men of their own imagination, they were holy men inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Question: How did the Bible come about?

Act 1:16,Men and brethren, this Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus.”

Note: Foretell in Greek is prolegō which means to say before, say beforehand i.e. before the event, predict; - it occurs only 3 times in the New Testament. The Holy Spirit told David beforehand concerning Judas. The Holy Spirit spoke to David because David was a prophet. In fact, the Bible was made up of all the things God told the prophets and apostles over the ages through the Holy Spirit and had them written down, from Moses of the Penteteuch to John of the Revelation.

Eph 3:5,“Which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets:”

Note: Reveal in Greek is apokalyptō which means to uncover, lay open what has been veiled or covered up, make known, make manifest, disclose what before was unknown; - it occurs about 26 times in the New Testament. The Gospel of Jesus Christ was not made known in ages past, it has now been revealed by the Holy Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets. For that reason the Bible is not a book written by men.

2Pe 3:2,“That you may remember the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior.”

Note: Remember in Greek is mimnēskomai which means to remind one's self of, be mindful of; - it occurs only 2 times in the New Testament. Commandment in Greek is entolē which means collectively the whole body of moral precepts of Christianity as taught by Jesus Christ and His apostles; - it occurs 71 times in the New Testament. All the words or sayings and the commandments written in the Bible are called the Scriptures for Christians to observe and follow.

B. "The Bible contains the Word of God."

The Bible is the Word of God. The Bible contains some what the devil and men and angels said, but God said that they said them.

Jos 14:6,“Then the children of Judah came to Joshua in Gilgal. And Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him: You know the Word which the LORD said to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh Barnea.”

Note: The Pentateuch (the five books of Moses) is the Word which the Lord said to Moses.

1Ki 12:22,“But the Word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying.”

Note: The Word of God came to the prophet, the prophet could only say what God said.

1Ki 13:21-22,“And he cried out to the man of God who came from Judah, saying: Thus says the LORD: Because you have disobeyed the Word of the LORD, and have not kept the commandment which the LORD your God commanded you, but you came back, ate bread, and drank water in the place of which the LORD said to you, Eat no bread and drink no water, your corpse shall not come to the tomb of your fathers.”

Note: Prophets were spokesmen of God. All prophets would declare to the people: Thus says the Lord.

1Ch 17:3,“But it happened that night that the Word of God came to Nathan, saying:”

Note: The Word of God came to a prophet not that the prophet had expected. It happened when God wanted it to happen.

2Ch 11:2,“But the Word of the LORD came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying.”

Luk 4:3,“And the devil said to Him: If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”

Note: It is true, this was what the devil said to Jesus: If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread. The Word of God said that the devil said so.

Luk 1:34-37,“Then Mary said to the angel: How can this be, since I do not know a man? And the angel answered and said to her: The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.”

Note: ‘I do not know a man’ means I do not have sex with a man. The angel Gabriel was sent by God to speak to Mary of the virgin birth, Mary was puzzled because how could a virgin to have a child. Gabriel as an archangel of God, empowered to give explanation to Mary. Gabriel said what God wanted him to say.

Mat 19:4,“And He answered and said to them: Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female.”

Note: Jesus Christ confirms the Old Testament was written as the Word of God. Jesus also confirms the fact that Adam and Eve were created by God’s direct act as it is written.

Mar 12:26,“But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying: I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?”

Note: Jesus Christ unequivocally reaffirms the Old Testament is the Word of God.

Mar 12:10,“Have you not even read this Scripture: The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.”

Note: A passage of the Bible is called a Scripture. Jesus Christ validates a passage written in the Old Testament as the Scripture.

Luk 1:19,“And the angel answered and said to him: I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings.”

Note: Angels are messengers of God. Prophets are spokesmen of God. Both angels and prophets speak only what God told them to speak.

Luk 3:2,“While Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the Word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.”

Note: John the Baptist was sent by God to prepare the way for the Son of God. The Word of God came to John in the wilderness. The Word of God did not come to the palace, the seat of power, wealth and glory. Do you know any seat of power, wealth and glory which receives the Word of God?

Jhn 10:35,“If He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken).”

Note: The Word of God did not come to just any person. Jesus Christ verified and validated that the Word of God came to the holy men (prophets) in the past.

Luk 24:27,“And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.”

Note: Expound in Greek is diermēneuō which means to unfold the meaning of what is said, explain, interpret; - it occurs only 6 times in the New Testament. All the Scriptures mean the Old Testament because the New Testament was not written at the time of the resurrection of Christ. The central message of Moses and all the Prophets was the Messiah, the Son of God who came to the world to die for sinners.

Act 13:44,“On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the Word of God.”

Note: Sabbath was the day of rest for the Jews, most suitable to come together to hear the Word of God. Later Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and assembled on Sunday to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Word of God, and sing praises and worship God.

Act 28:23,“So when they had appointed him a day, many came to him at his lodging, to whom he explained and solemnly testified of the Kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus from both the Law of Moses and the Prophets, from morning till evening.”

Note: Paul was a great apostle who received the revelation directly from Jesus Christ. Paul was also a great preacher, he explained and solemnly testified of the Kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus from both the Law of Moses and the Prophets. Now it is much easier to preach the Gospel because the whole New Testament explains it. Explain in Greek is ektithēmi which means to metaphorically set forth, declare, expound, make clear or understandable; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Testify in Greek is diamartyromai which means to confirm a thing by testimony, cause it to be believed; - it occurs about 15 times in the New Testament. All the apostolic instruction boiled down to testimony respecting things they themselves had seen or heard, or which had disclosed to them by divine revelation. Persuade in Greek is peithō which means to induce one by words to believe, inspire confidence, cause to believe, cause to have faith; - it occurs about 55 times in the New Testament. What the apostles could do are not what present day evangelists and preachers can. The apostles had power, first-hand experience, had seen the Lord and could perform miracles.

When the Bible says the devil said, the devil did say so. When the Bible says angels said, angels did say so. When the Bible says a certain individual says something, that individual did say just that. Whatever the Bible says is so because God says so.

C. "The Bible is full of allegories, illusions, legends, mythologies, myths, parables and stories."

The Bible is not a historical book, but it is historically correct. When the Bible speaks of an individual like David and a place like Bethlehem David was a real historical person, Bethlehem was and is a real place even today. The Bible is not a scientific textbook, but it is scientifically correct.

Mat 22:42-45,“Saying: What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is He? They said to Him: The Son of David. He said to them: How then does David in the Spirit call Him ‘Lord,’ saying: The LORD said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool? If David then calls Him ‘Lord,' how is He his Son?”

Note: The Bible is not a scientific textbook, but it is scientifically correct. When God revealed to Jeremiah more than 2,000 years ago about the expanding universe, it was and it is scientifically correct.

True, the Bible contains parables, allegories, and stories. When the Bible says it is a parable, it should be taken literally as a parable.

Eze 17:2,“Son of man, set forth a riddle and tell the house of Israel a parable.”

Note: Riddle in Hebrew is chiydah which means difficult question, enigmatic saying or question, perplexing saying or question, dark obscure utterance, dark speech, hard question; - it occurs about 17 times in the Old Testament. Parable in Hebrew is mashal which means proverbial saying, aphorism, similitude, byword; - it occurs about 39 times in the Old Testament. When the Bible says it is a riddle, it is a riddle. When the Bible says it is a parable, it is a parable. However, the Bible is not made of riddles and parables.

Jdg 14:12-14,“Then Samson said to them: Let me pose a riddle to you. If you can correctly solve and explain it to me within the seven days of the feast, then I will give you thirty linen garments and thirty changes of clothing. But if you cannot explain it to me, then you shall give me thirty linen garments and thirty changes of clothing. And they said to him: Pose your riddle, that we may hear it. So he said to them: Out of the eater came something to eat, and out of the strong came something sweet. Now for three days they could not explain the riddle”

Note: Samson’s riddle was very interesting. Yes, the Bible contains riddles, but the Bible is not made of riddles.

Mat 13:36,“Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying: Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field.”

Note: Jesus tells many parables as they are written in the Gospels. Parable in Greek is parabolē which means comparison of one thing with another, likeness, similitude, an example by which a doctrine or precept is illustrated, an earthly story with a heavenly meaning; - it occurs about 50 times in the New Testament. The explanations of the parable are plain truths, no parable: 

Mat 13:37-42,“He answered and said to them: He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the Kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one. The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the world. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” These are sober truths.

Gal 4:24,“Now this is an allegory: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery; she is Hagar.

Note: Allegory in Greek is allēgoreō which means speaking allegorically or in a figure; - it occurs only once in the New Testament.

Pro 1:6,“To understand a proverb and a figure, the words of the wise and their riddles.”

Note: Figure in Hebrew is mĕliytsah which means an obscure saying, what needs an interpretation; - it occurs only 2 times in the Old Testament.

Jhn 10:6,“Jesus used this figure of speech, but they did not understand what He was telling them.”

Note: Figure of speech in Greek is paroimia which means any dark saying which shadows forth some didactic truth, a symbolic or figurative saying, speech or discourse in which a thing is illustrated by the use of similes and comparisons, extended and elaborate metaphor; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament.  

Jhn 16:29,“His disciples said to Him: See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech!”

Isa 30:10,“Who say to the seers: You must not see visions; and to the prophets, You must not prophesy to us what is right, Speak to us pleasant words, Prophesy illusions.”

Note: Illusion in Hebrew is mahathallah which means deception, deceit; - it occurs only once in the Old Testament.

Luk 24:11,“And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them.”

Note: Idle tale in Greek is lēros which means idle talk, nonsense; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. At first the disciples who had not seen the risen Lord did not believe the women who had seen the Lord; their words seemed to them like idle tales.

1Ti 1:4,“Nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith.”

Note: Fable in Greek is mythos which means a fiction, myth, invention, falsehood, legend; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. The Word of God edifies and builds you up in the faith.

1Ti 4:7, “But reject profane and old wives' fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness.”

Note: Godliness in Greek is eusebeia which means piety towards God; - it occurs about 15 times in the New Testament. Exercise in Greek is gymnazō which means to strive earnestly, train vigorously like those in a school of gymnastics; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Godliness is some virtue that Christians must strive, train and practice vigorously.

2Ti 4:4, “And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”

Note: The Bible is truth, against fables. So it is impossible for the Bible to be made of fables.

Tts 1:14,“Not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.”

Note: The Jewish fables were propagated by Pharisees and scribes.

When Jesus says, I am the door of the sheep; it is a figure of speech. Jesus is not a door made of wood or steel. But Jesus is the door in the sense without going through Jesus you cannot enter the sheepfold.

Jhn 14:6,“Jesus said to him: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Note: The statement is spiritually true: Jesus is the Way to God, no one comes to the Father except through Him. That Jesus is the Way to God is the Truth. Those who believe the truth in Christ has eternal life.

2Th 2:11,“And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.”

Note: Delusion in Greek is planē  which means error, wrong opinion relative to morals or religion; - it occurs about 10 times in the New Testament. Many white supremacists and uninformed Americans believe in the delusion that America is exceptional, chosen by God to rule the world.

Lam 2:14,“Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not uncovered your iniquity, to bring back your captives, but have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions.”

Psa 4:2,“How long, O men, will you turn My glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? Selah.”

Jer 14:14,“Then the LORD said to me: The prophets are prophesying lies in My name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds.”

Note: Delusion in Hebrew is tormah which means treachery, fraud, deceit, deceitfulness; - it occurs only 6 times in the Old Testament. Delusions of the minds are most destructive. ‘White man’s burden’is a fraud. Evolution is a delusion of the mind. Power is a delusion of the mind. Wealth is a delusion of the mind. Pleasure is a delusion of the mind. Because God is love, therefore there is no hell – a big illusion of the mind.

1Ti 1:4,“Nor to occupy themselves with myths and endless genealogies which promote speculations rather than the divine training that is in faith.”

Note: Myth in Greek is mythos which means a fiction, fable, invention, falsehood; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. Speculation is ekzētēsis which means subtle inquiry, dispute; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. Unbelieving scholars and modernists are good at making subtle inquiries such as so-called ‘historical Jesus’,‘textual criticism’, etc. The Bible is against all kinds of myths, endless genealogies and speculations. All private interpretations of the Bible are speculations at the least, and heresies at most.

1Ti 4:7,“Have nothing to do with godless and silly myths. Train yourself in godliness.”

Note: There is infinite variety of godless and silly myths. One silly myth is if you go to the pulpit and kneel down there, God will be nearer to you and answer your prayer. Some Chinese churches are like Buddhist temples, those who go to church have some silly Buddhist practices. Catholics have many silly myths; they kiss the statue of Mary or cross to get healing. Catholics believe in the myth that Mary is the mediator between God and men. Westerners are superstitious about the number 13. Chinese believe the number 8 brings them good luck and good fortune – all these silly myths Christians have nothing to do with them.

Tts 1:14,“Instead of giving heed to Jewish myths or to commands of men who reject the truth.”

Note: If you give heed to Jewish myths and scientific myths or to commands of men, you will reject the truth because they are not compatible with the Word of God.

2 Pe 1:16, “For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty.”
Note: The most cunningly devised fables are evolution and the “big bang” devised by unbelieving scientists. Apostles were eyewitnesses of Christ’s resurrection, power and majesty. All plain statements of the Word of God are not parables, fables, mythologies or myths, dreams, delusions, allegories, tales or stories. Plain statement should be taken as plain statements. Plain statements of the Bible are plain truths.
 

16.   The Bible Speaks and Interprets Itself.

2Pe 1:20,“But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of private interpretation. For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.” 

Note: Interpretation in Greek is epilysis which means a loosening, unloosing, explanation, exposition; - it occurs only once in the New Testament.  The Bible makes it clear; holy men of God (prophets and apostles) spoke and wrote the Bible. No prophecy of Scripture is a matter of private interpretation. If you want to argue with God, that is not my problem. The Bible is not a matter of private interpretation. The Bible speaks and interprets itself.

Question: How Does the Bible Interpret Itself?

The following are examples of ways in which the Bible interprets itself. 

A.   Biblical Definitions

The Bible provides many definitions which are vital to understand the Word of God. If you do not know the definition of the Bible on a certain topic, it means you may know the word and still do not understand what the Bible is talking about. Here only a few topics with explanations are cited to aid in forming Biblical Theology about God, sin, Christ, hell. Biblical definitions are God's definitions, not the definitions of theologians, scholars or scientists.

(1). God

Jhn 4:24,God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Note: Spirit in Greek is pneuma which means the life giving spirit, the essence of God; - it occurs about 385 times in the New Testament. Jesus further explains, 

Luk 24:39,“See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” A spirit does not have flesh and bones, that is definitive. Thus the Bible interprets what does it mean that God is Spirit. This is the primary meaning. Spirit also has secondary meaning. True, God is Spirit. The Bible also says, 

Hbr 12:29,“For our God is a consuming fire.” God is a consuming fire, but fire is not God. To believe in fire god is pantheism. Those who worship fire god do not know the true God. The Bible also says, 

1Jo 4:8,“The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” God is love, but love is not God. Those who worship the goddess of love are pagans, not Christians. Thus if you gather all the Scriptures that say about God in one place, sort them out and study them systematically, and present them in a cohesive manner it forms Biblical Theology. That is how the Bible interprets itself. You cannot single out one passage of the Scripture to contradict other Scriptures. The unity of the Word of God presents the central message of God to mankind, and rejects any private interpretation. 

(2). Sin

1Jo 3:4,“Whoever commits sin violates also the law: for sin is the violation of the law.”

Note: Sin is the violation of the law, that is one definition. Sin is judged according to the law of Moses – the law that God gave to Moses. This is the fundamental definition of sin. Without the law, you would not know what sin is. The law says, 

Exd 20:17,“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.” 

Rom 7:7,“What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said: You shall not covet.” However, that is not all the Scriptures say or define about sin.

Rom 14:23,“But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not of faith is sin.” Whatever is not of faith is sin, that brings a broad perspective of what sin is. You sin if you live not by faith, but by feeling. Furthermore, 

Jam 4:17,“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.” This is the sin of omission; most sins are confined to commissions. You are rich, you are able to do good but you do not, that is sin. You have power to right the wrong, but you do not, it is sin. You are a politician, you know your colleagues violate the law and commit corruption, you say and do nothing, it is sin. You are a doctor, you know the healthcare system defraud and overcharge patients, you say and do nothing, it is sin. You are a Wall Street executive, you know the financial system systematically defraud and loot the world, but you say and do nothing, it is sin. 

1Jo 5:17,“All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death.” For example, to give tax cuts to the wealthy and powerful is unrighteousness, all unrighteousness is sin. From general to the specific, 

Col 3:5,“Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” This Scripture defines covetousness (greed) as idolatry. In America very few people worship idols, but most Americans worship money (the love of money) which is greed. Wall Street is a definitive demonstration of greed, and capitalism is made of greed and infected the whole world with frauds and all sorts of evils.

Rom 6:23,“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Note: The fact we will all die because we have all sinned. If you have not sinned, you will not die. Since Adam, there is no one who has not sinned. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

(3). Christ

Mat 16:16,“Simon Peter answered and said: You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Note: Christ in Greek is Christos which means ‘anointed’, the Messiah, the Son of God; - it occurs about 569 times in the New Testament. Christ the Messiah is the Son of the living God. It refers to Jesus only, Jesus as the Christ (Messiah), the proper name Jesus Christ.

Mat 23:10,“And do not be called masters; for One is your Master, the Christ.”

Note: Master in Greek is kathēgētēs which means a guide, teacher, the supreme leader who has authority and power; - it occurs only 3 times in the New Testament. Jesus Christ is the Master like no one. Many heresies were born because certain puffed-up and hydrocephalic individuals wanted to be masters and formed a theological school of thought based on their private interpretations of the Word of God.

Mar 1:1,“The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the beginning of the Gospel, without Jesus Christ there is no Gospel.

Luk 2:11,“For there is born to you this day in the city of David the Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”

Note: Savior in Greek is sōtēr which means deliverer, preserver, redeemer, through whom God gives salvation; - it occurs about 24 times in the New Testament. Lord in Greek is kyrios which means the Ruler of the universe, this title is given to: God, the Messiah; - it occurs about 748 times in the New Testament. Jesus Christ is the Savior, the Lord just as God is the Lord.

Luk 24:46,“Then He said to them: Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day.”

Note: The Jews and the disciples had a wrong idea about the Messiah. They thought the Christ must remain forever, not knowing that it was necessary for Christ as the Lamb of God to suffer and die for sinners in order to save them. If only death, then there would be no salvation; for Christ rose from the dead for our justification.

Jhn 1:17,“For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”

Note: Since man cannot obtain the righteousness of God through keeping the Law, so God provide grace for all who come to Christ for salvation. The righteousness of God is awarded freely to all who trust in Christ, this is the truth.

Jhn 1:41,“He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him: We have found the Messiah (which is translated, the Christ).”

Jhn 4:42,“Then they said to the woman: Now we believe, not because of what you said, for we ourselves have heard Him and we know that this is indeed the Christ, the Savior of the world.”

Note: Jesus indeed is the Messiah, the Savior of the world. Truth is exclusive; there is only one Messiah, the Savior of the world. A spouse is also exclusive; you cannot have more than one spouse.

Jhn 6:69,“Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Note: In secular things you know and believe. In divine things you believe and know. Come to believe is come to know.

Jhn 17:3,“And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”

Act 2:36,“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

Act 2:38,“Then Peter said to them: Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

Note: Remission in Greek is aphesis which means forgiveness, pardon of sins (letting them go as if they had never been committed); - it occurs about 17 times in the New Testament.

Rom 1:16,“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.”

Note: The Gospel of Christ is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, to both the Jews and the Gentiles. Gentiles can be saved just as the Jews can be saved.

Rom 2:16,“In the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my Gospel.”

Note: The day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ is when He returns to reign with the saints. Ah, do you know that God knows your secrets? The leader of a nation has many secrets, God knows them. A nation has many secrets or classified information because its leaders and officials have done many evil things, God knows them. A corporate executive has many secrets how he looted the corporation, God knows them. Doctors and hospital owners have defrauded and overcharged patients, God knows their secrets. Whatever you have done and think no one knows about, God knows the secrets of men.

Rom 3:22,“Even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference.”

Note: The righteousness of God is not possible to obtain through the law is given freely to all through faith in Jesus Christ.

Rom 10:4,“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”

Note: End in Greek is telos which means termination, that by which a thing is finished, the end to which all things relate; - it occurs about 42 times in the New Testament. This is a vital truth: Christ is the end of the law. Roughly there are two dispensations: law (Old Testament) and grace (New Testament). The dispensation of law was ended; the dispensation of grace began when Christ first appeared on earth and lasts until Christ returns to reign. Now is the dispensation of grace. The righteousness of God which man cannot obtain through the law is given by grace to all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. Christ fulfills and completes the law for righteousness to everyone who believes in Him as Lord and Savior.

1Cr 1:24,“But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

Note: Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.

1Cr 10:4,“And all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.”

When Jesus Christ says, 

Mat 16:18,“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”

Note: You see the Bible interprets itself. Peter was not the rock, that Rock was Christ. The Bible does not contradict itself.

1Cr 12:27,“Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.”

Note: The Scripture provides the definition of the church. Believers are the body of Christ, and members individually. The Church is the body of Christ.

1Cr 15:3-4, “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.”

Note: The Scriptures cited are the fundamental doctrines of Christianity. Christ died for our sins and He was buried, and He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. 

1Jo 1:7,“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.” Christianity is based on the Scriptures, the Word of God. Christ rose from the dead for our justification, so that all believe in Him may be counted as righteousness. The substitutionary death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the right and left sacred pillars of the truth of Christianity. Without Jesus Christ dying for sinners, sinners cannot be redeemed. Without resurrection of Jesus Christ, sinners cannot be justified or counted righteous before God. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ completed the redemption of our souls; the second coming of Christ will complete the redemption of our bodies, from mortal to immortal, from inglorious to glorious. Only Christianity has the empty tomb, for our Redeemer lives forever. The dead leaders of many religions could not even save themselves. Recently a Hindu guru worshiped by millions died at 84. The Hindu guru died because he was also a sinner. If he was not a sinner, he would not have died. Death is the destiny of all men. For the wages of sin is death.

(4). Hell

Hell is not a state of mind; it is a real place of suffering.

Deu 32:22, “For a fire is kindled in My anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell; it shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.”

Note: The Chinese concept of 18-floor hell is a pure imagination, but the Bible does say about the lowest hell. Apparently people who are sent to the lowest hell are the most wicked and will suffer the most. The lowest hell is the bottomless pit. Apparently the hell (shĕ'owl) of the Old Testament has been moved to the hell (hadēs) described in Rev 20:14 after Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended to the highest heaven. We should not speculate what is not spelled out in the Bible.

Psa 9:17,“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”

Note: All the nations that forget God shall be turned into hell, including nations that call themselves ‘Christian’ but practices wickedness.

Psa 55:15,“Let death seize them; let them go down alive into hell, for wickedness is in their dwellings and among them.”

Pro 5:5,“Her feet go down to death, her steps lay hold of hell.

Pro 7:27,“Her house is the way to hell, descending to the chambers of death.”

Note: Her refers to prostitute and bad woman. The house of prostitution is the way to hell.

Pro 27:20,Hell and Destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”

Note: Hell is never full because it is bottomless.

Eze 31:16,“I made the nations shake at the sound of its fall, when I cast it down to hell together with those who descend into the Pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, were comforted in the depths of the earth.”

Mat 5:22,“But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire.”

Mat 5:29,“If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Mat 5:30,“And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Mat 10:28,“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Note: This Scripture answers the question how is that the suffering in hell is forever, because they shall be tormented both soul and body. The body of the wicked after resurrection can feel the pain of fire and worm, it is continuously dying but never dies, there is no ending. The suffering in hell involves body and soul of the wicked or unbeliever.

Mat 23:15,“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.”

Note: There are bad and false preachers who make believers their disciples. Remember, a true preacher makes believers the disciples of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ calls the evildoer, a son of hell. Truth is offensive. Something is seriously wrong with you if you think the truth of God must please you. You study the Bible not to find whether it pleases you or not. You study the Word of God to find out whether you please God or not.

There are many sons of hell making hell on earth; someday the sons of hell will be tormented in hell forever and ever. A greedy capitalist that robs and loots the world is a son of hell. A warmonger that starts war of aggression is a son of hell. A doctor and hospital owner who defraud and prey on patients are sons of hell. A lawyer who practices legal terrorism is a son of hell. A terrorist is a son of hell...

Mat 23:33,“Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell.”

Note: Some people think Jesus was too kind and only spoke kind words, but He calls the wicked, serpents, brood of vipers.

Mar 9:43, “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched—.”

Note: Hell fire is worse than nuclear fire, fire produced by fission or fusion. Hell fire is eternal, and suffering in hell is also eternal.

Luk 12:5,“But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!”

2Pe 2:4,“For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment.”

Note: It appears God has sent the angels who sinned and maybe the wicked also who died to chains of darkness. After judgment, the lake of fire (hell) will be the final place of punishment for them. If God did not spare the angels who sinned, don’t think you are better than an angel can escape God’s judgment. 

B. The Unity of the Word of God.

The Word of God gives one consistent message, the work of the devil is trying to cast doubt or distort the Word of God. The Bible does not contradict itself.

Mat 7:15,“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”

Note: Jesus Christ calls false prophets ravenous wolves. Those ravenous wolves come to you in sheep’s clothing. There are many false prophets who appear in cathedrals, seminaries, megachurches, etc. False prophets are ravenous wolves because they deceive people and destroy their faith.

In America a false prophet who deceived people repeatedly about the Day of Judgment is very rich because fools gave him their money and assets.

Mat 24:11,“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”

Note: Preachers of properity gospel are false prophets, they deceive many by teaching if you give your money to them as investment, God will open up heaven and pour down material blessings on you so that you prosper and become rich.

Mat 24:24,“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”

Note: False christs and false prophets can also show great signs and wonders to deceive people.

Luk 6:26,“Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets.”

Note: Some false prophets and false teachers have fallen from grace and disgraced themselves. Some may be well received in palaces, white house, big mansions, big institutions, big firms, etc.

2Cr 11:13, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.”

Note: These deceitful workers may claim to be apostles of Christ. Since the Twelve, Judas lost his and replaced by Paul, all the apostles had gone to heaven; there will never be another apostle. If anyone declares himself to be a modern day apostle of Christ, you can be sure he is a false apostle.

Gal 2:4,“And this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage).”

2Pe 2:1,“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.”

Note: Those who insist they have power to make private interpretation of the Word of God, they will bring swift destruction upon themselves. You cannot use the words of man to measure the Word of God; you must measure the words of man by the Word of God. All false prophets and false teachers deny Jesus Christ is the Son of God, God who became Man.

2Pe 3:16,“He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.”

Note: Destruction in Greek is apōleia which means a perishing, ruin, the destruction which consists of eternal misery in hell; - it occurs about 20 times in the New Testament. Apostle Peter talked about the writings of Apostle Paul containing some things that are hard to understand. Ignorant and unstable people distort the Bible as they do the other Scriptures will bring their own destruction. There is such a thing that people do bring or cause their own destruction.

Rev 20:10,“The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
Note: The Scripture cited explains the end of the evil trinity, the devil, the beast and the false prophet – tormented in hell forever and ever.

Eph 4:5-6,“One Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

Note: The Bible presents one Lord (Jesus Christ), one faith (not denominations), one baptism; one God and Father of all. The Father and Son are One. All believers in Christ are one.

C. The Word of God centers on Jesus Christ.

Jhn 1:45,“Philip found Nathanael and said to him: We have found Him of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

Note: Find in Greek is heuriskō which means to find by enquiry, thought, examination, scrutiny, observation, find out, come to know, find by chance; - it occurs about 178 times in the New Testament. Messiah whom Moses and the prophets wrote about had been expected by the Jews for thousands of years.

Luk 24:27,“And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.”

Note: The things concerning the Messiah the Christ are written in the books of Moses and all the Prophets (the Old Testament).

Luk 24:44,“Then He said to them: These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”

Note: The three major portions of the Old Testament are the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms – in fact the whole Old Testament was written about Jesus Christ – the Messiah. The Book of Psalms is very useful to teach believers how to pray, how to communicate with God.

Mat 3:17,“And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying: This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Mat 17:5,“While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him!”

Mar 9:7,“And a cloud came and overshadowed them; and a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!”

Luk 9:35,“And a voice came out of the cloud, saying: This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!”

Note: The central message of God to mankind is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God’s beloved Son, hear Him, listen to Him, accept Him, believe in Him, obey Him, and love Him.

2Pe 1:17,“For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

Note: God is the Excellent Glory, Jesus Christ is His beloved Son.

1 Cr 2:2, “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”

Note: Everything else you know is useless if you do not know that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Savior of the world, died for your sins and rose from death and He is able to save you to the end.

Act 4:12,“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Note: This Scripture is very clear: there is no salvation in any other, there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. No matter who you are, Gandhi or Lincoln, you need Jesus to save you. No one is good enough to go to heaven.

1Cr 3:11,“For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Note: Foundation in Greek is themelios which means the thing laid down as a foundation; - it occurs about 16 times in the New Testament. Jesus Christ is the foundation of Christianity, the Rock of the church.

1Ti 1:3-4,“As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith.”

1Ti 2:5, “For there is one God, and one Mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the Mediator between God and men. It is not Mary, it is not apostles, it is not angels, and it is not any man.

D. The Way.

Jhn 14:6,“Jesus said to him: I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.”

Note: Way in Greek is hodos which means a travelled way, road, by which one passes; - it occurs about 102 times in the New Testament. Jesus Christ is the way with whom all who seek approach to God must enter into closest fellowship. Jesus Christ is the way to God, there is no other way. This is the truth if you want to receive life. Truth is not narrow-mindedness. Truth is exclusive, not inclusive. Think about this as the most important thing: If Jesus Christ is right, then all religions are false. However, there is religious freedom, you may receive or reject Jesus Christ; but you will not escape the consequence. The Bible has made it clear about the consequences of unbelievers. What you decide will determine your eternal destiny. I had made choice long ago; I accept and believe Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, no regret whatsoever.

Mat 7:13-14,“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

Mat 22:16,“And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying: Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any.”

Note: Truthful in Greek is alēthēs which means true, speaking the truth; - it occurs about 25 times in the New Testament. To be partial means to regard the person, pay attention to who is the person, or regard the position of man. Jesus Christ does not regard whether you are the president of America, the prime minister of Britain, or the king of any nation. In the sight of God, man is nothing, less than nothing.

Luk 1:79,“To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Note: Those who walk in darkness, such as Wall Street crooks, corrupt officials, fraudulent doctors and hospital owners, predatory lawyers, etc. do not know the way of peace. 

Isa 57:21, “There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked.” God says: There is no peace for the wicked.

Luk 20:21,“Then they asked Him, saying: Master, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth.”

Note: Do not show personal favoritism means not being partial to any. To teach the way of God in truth, one cannot show personal favoritism. Jesus Christ is the way, the narrow way, the way of peace, the way of God in truth, the way of salvation, the way of the Lord, the way of God.

Act 9:2,“And asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.”

Note: The word ‘way’used in Act 9:2 is the same original word used in

Jhn 14:6, "Whether used it favorably or unfavorably, Christianity is the Way. Christians are people of the Way – the Way of God.

Act 16:17,“This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying: These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.”

Note: The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the way of salvation.

Act 18:25-26,“This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John. So he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the Way of God more accurately.”

Note: The more knowledge you have of the Word of God, the more accurately you explain the Way of God, the way of salvation.

Act 19:9,“But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples, reasoning daily in the school of Tyrannus.”

Note: Do not be surprised if some hardened unbelievers speak evil of the Way. The enemies of the cross oppose the Way of God. 

E. The Door.

Jhn 10:1,“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.”

Note: Leaders of false religions are actually thieves and robbers because they misled the people with the wrong way.

Jhn 10:2, “But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.”

Jhn 10:7,“So Jesus said to them again: Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.”

Jhn 10:9,“I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”

Note: Jesus Christ is the door of salvation, enter by Jesus means to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and you will be saved.

Gen 7:13-16, “On the very same day Noah and Noah's sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark--  they and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.”

Note: To shut in means the door is closed. Now the door of salvation is open, now you can be saved. The day is coming when the door of salvation is shut, then you cannot enter.
Gen 19:10-11,“But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.”
Note: The Old Testament story cited above is very interesting and illustrates the importance of the door.

Act 14:27, “Now when they had come and gathered the church together, they reported all that God had done with them, and that He had opened the door of faith to the Gentiles.”

Note: God has opened the door of faith to the Gentiles and the Jews. All may come in and be saved.

Col 4:3, “Meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the Word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains.”

Note: Pray God to open to us a door for the Word through the Internet to reach millions with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Jam 5:9,“Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door

Rev 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

Note: Jesus Christ is knocking at the door of your heart, open your heart and receive Him as your Lord and Savior. The most wonderful garage door leads you only to a car. White house door cannot lead you to heaven. Congressional door cannot lead you to heaven. Palace door does not lead you to paradise. Jesus is the door that leads you to God and heaven. 

17.     What to Do with the Word of God.

Peoples of the world and Christians are at least told to do the following. The Word of God speaks two groups of people: believers and unbelievers. What the Word of God tells Christians to do, unbelievers cannot do. 

A. Hear the Word.

Isa 28:14,“Therefore hear the Word of the LORD, you scornful men, who rule this people who are in Jerusalem.”

Isa 66:5,“Hear the Word of the LORD, you who tremble at His Word: Your brethren who hated you, who cast you out for My name's sake, said: Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy. But they shall be ashamed.”

Jesus says, Mat 13:9,“He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

Rom 10:17,“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.”

Note: Hear the Word means to listen to what God says and obey the Word of God.

B. Pay attention to the Word.

2Pe 1:19,“And we have the Word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”

Note: Pay attention in Greek is prosechō which means to turn the mind to, attend to be attentive, give attention to, take heed, devote thought and effort to; - it occurs about 24 times in the New Testament. You do well to pay attention to the Word of God which a light like the morning star that shines in your hearts.

C. Believe the Word.

Act 4:4,“However, many of those who heard the Word believed; and the number of the men came to be about five thousand.”

Note: Believe in Greek is pisteuō which means to think to be true, to be persuaded of, place confidence in, trust in Jesus or God as able to aid; - it occurs about 248 times in the New Testament. To believe the Word is to take God at His Word.

Act 15:7,“And when there had been much dispute, Peter rose up and said to them: Men and brethren, you know that a good while ago God chose among us, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the Word of the Gospel and believe.”

Note: It is the duty of man to hear the Word of the Gospel and believe.

Eph 1:13,“In Him you also trusted, after you heard the Word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.”

Note: To hear the Word of truth, the Gospel of our salvation and believe is to be sealed to receive the Holy Spirit.

D. Receive the Word.

Act 8:14,“Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the Word of God, they sent Peter and John to them.”

Note: Receive in Greek is dechomai which means to take hold of, take up, give ear to, embrace, approve, make one’s own; - it occurs 59 times in the New Testament. We must receive the Word of God.

Act 17:11,“These were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.”

Note: Readiness in Greek is prothymia which means readiness of mind, eagerness, zeal, spirit, inclination; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament. Search the Scriptures and receive the Word with readiness of mind and eagerness.

1Th 1:6, “And you became followers of us and of the Lord, having received the Word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit.”

Note: For followers of Jesus Christ to receive the Word in affliction means to suffer for the Lord and to be with joy of the Holy Spirit.

1Th 2:13,“For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe.”

Note: The Word of God is the word of truth.

E. Desire the Word.

1Pe 2:2,“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby.”

Note: Desire in Greek is epipotheō which means to long for, pursue with love, long after; - it occurs only 9 times in the New Testament. As newborn babes desire the milk so Christians should desire the pure milk of the Word. The Word is vital for spiritual growth. Christians are to grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ. Knowledge of and obedience to the Word of God are essential for Christian growth.

F. Taste the Word.

Hbr 6:5,“And have tasted the good Word of God and the powers of the age to come.”

Note: Taste in Greek is geuomai which means to try the flavor of, partake of, enjoy, feel and experience; - it occurs about 15 times in the New Testament. The taste of the Word of God is good because of its promises and blessings. If you are a child of God, you must have experienced the divine providence and how God has blessed and helped you in many ways.

G. Keep the Word.

Luk 11:28,“But He said: More than that, blessed are those who hear the Word of God and keep it!”

Note: Keep here in Greek is phylassō which means to guard, watch, keep watch, guard i.e. care for, take care not to violate, observe; - it occurs about 30 times in the New Testament.

1Jo 2:5,“But whoever keeps His Word, truly the love of God is perfected in Him. By this we know that we are in Him.”

Note: Keep in Greek is tēreō which means to attend to carefully, take care of, observe of God’s or Christ’s command; - it occurs about 75 times in the New Testament. To keep the Word is to obey the commandments of God and do the will of God.

H. Remember the Word.

Jhn 15:20,“Remember the Word that I said to you: A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My Word, they will keep yours also.”

Note: Remember in Greek is mnēmoneuō which means to be mindful of, call to mind, hold in memory, keep in mind, make mention of; - it occurs about 21 times in the New Testament. Christians must remember the Word that Jesus said in the New Testament and keep it. To remember the Word of Christ you have to keep it in your heart. Here “yours” refers what the apostles later said and wrote in the New Testament. It does not mean what church leaders, theologians or pastors say.

I.   Obey the Word.

Jos 24:24,“The people said to Joshua: We will serve the LORD our God and we will obey His voice.

Note: Obey in Hebrew is shama` which means to hear, listen to, consent, agree, yield to, be obedient, give heed; - it occurs about 1,159 times in the Old Testament. God’s voice and God’s word mean the same. To obey God’s voice is to obey His Word.

2Th 1:8,“Dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.”

Note: Obey in Greek is hypakouō which means to be obedient to, submit to, harken to a command; - it occurs 21 times in the New Testament. To obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus is to obey the Word. Those who do not obey will receive retribution. Retribution in Greek is ekdikēsis which means vengeance, punishment; - it occurs only 9 times in the New Testament. What punishment for those who do not obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ says, Mat 25:46,“These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Punishment in Greek is kolasis which means correction, penalty; - it occurs only 2 times in the New Testament. What is eternal punishment? Body and soul suffer in Hell forever.

J.   Be doers of the Word.

Jam 1:22,“But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

Note: Doer in Greek is poiētēs which means a performer, practitioner, one who obeys or fulfils the law; - it occurs only 6 times in the New Testament. One who hears the Word, but does not do it, deceives himself. A good illustration is the Western powers that claim to be Christian, but they practice imperialism, colonialism, capitalism, and hegemonism which are totally contrary to the Word of God.

Luk 6:46, “Why do you call Me: ‘Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?”

Be doer of the Word is to do what the Lord says.

K. Hold firm the Word.

Phl 2:16,“Holding out the Word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.”

Note: Hold out in Greek is epechō which means to have or hold upon, hold toward, hold forth; - it occurs only 5 times in the New Testament.

Tts 1:9,“Holding firm the faithful Word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict.”

Note: Hold firm in Greek is antechō which means to hold to firmly, cleave to; - it occurs only 4 times in the New Testament. Believers must hold out and hold firm the Word of life in this ungodly world.

L. Speak the Word.

Act 4:31,“And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness.”

Note: Speak in Greek is laleō  which means to utter a voice or emit a sound, use the tongue or the faculty of speech, talk, tell, use words in order to declare one's mind and disclose one's thoughts, make known by speaking; - it occurs about 296 times in the New Testament. To be filled with the Holy Spirit is not meant to speak in tongues, but to speak the Word of God with boldness. Boldness in Greek is parrēsia which means freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech, open, frankly, free and fearless confidence, cheerful courage, assurance; - it occurs about 31 times in the New Testament.

Act 16:32,“Then they spoke the Word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.”

Phl 1:14,“And most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the Word without fear.”

Note: What is the difference between speaking the Word and preaching the Word. Speaking the Word is informal, preaching the Word is formal. We should pray that the Word of God can be proclaimed everywhere without fear. In some countries that have state religion, you will lose your life to preach the Word of God. If one of their citizens is converted to Christianity, he/she will be beheaded. That kind of oppressive religion should be outlawed in all civilized nations. Religious freedom should mean preaching and practicing the Gospel of Jesus Christ without fear.

M. Preach the Word.

Act 8:4,“Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the Word.”

Note: Preach in Greek is euaggelizō which means to evangelize, bring good news, announce glad tidings, proclaim glad tidings; - it occurs about 55 times in the New Testament.

Act 8:25,“So when they had testified and preached the Word of the Lord, they returned to Jerusalem, preaching the Gospel in many villages of the Samaritans.”

Act 15:35,“Paul and Barnabas also remained in Antioch, teaching and preaching the Word of the Lord, with many others also.”

2Ti 4:2,“Preach the Word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”

Note: Here the word‘preach’is kēryssō which means to be a herald, to officiate as a herald, publish, proclaim openly; - it occurs about 61 times in the New Testament. The Gospel of Jesus Christ can be preached by TV, radio, movie, printed matter, record, DVD, and the Internet.

N. Spread the Word.

Act 13:49,“And the Word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region.”

Note: Spread in Greek is diapherō which means to bear or carry through any place, carry in different directions, to different places, spread abroad; - it occurs about 13 times in the New Testament. Preachers must preach the Gospel; all Christians must spread the Word. Today the Internet is the most effective and fastest means of spreading the Word of the Lord throughout the world, and the cheapest means.

O. Bear witness to the Word.

Act 14:3,“Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the Word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

Note: Bear witness in Greek is martyreō which means to testify, affirm that one has seen or heard or experienced something, be a witness of the truth; - it occurs about 79 times in the New Testament. Every born-again Christian is a witness to the Word of His grace; even most believers do not have the gift of performing signs and miracles. A Christian life is a living testimony to the grace and power of God.

P. Teach the Word.

Act 18:11,“And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the Word of God among them.”

Note: Teach in Greek is didaskō  which means to hold discourse with others in order to instruct them, deliver didactic discourses, impart instruction, instill doctrine into one, explain or expound a thing; - it occurs about 97 times in the New Testament. The strangest things are professors of theology and ministers who do not know the Word but teach everything to deny and repudiate the Word. Such are false teachers. You wonder why they exist in seminaries and churches today. Actually it is a fulfilled prophecy, 

Jud 1:4,“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” 

2Pe 2:1,“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction.” Any doctrine that denies Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of the world is a destructive heresy and false doctrine.

Q. Labor in the Word.

1Ti 5:17,“Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the Word and doctrine.”

2Ti 2:15,“Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Note: Labor in Greek is kopiaō which means to toil with wearisome effort; - it occurs about 23 times in the New Testament. What I am trying to do is to put the Word and fundamental doctrines of Christianity on the Internet absolutely free, rightly dividing the Word of truth, proclaiming and promoting the Kingdom of God and Christ. Rightly dividing in Greek is orthotomeō which means to make straight and smooth, to handle aright, to teach the truth directly and correctly; - it occurs only once in the New Testament. To explain the differences between law and grace, between work and gift, between reward and punishment, between heaven and hell, between this life and the life to come, between things below and things above, between the worldly and the spiritual, between the eternal life and eternal punishment, etc. is rightly dividing the Word of truth. Among those who labored in the Word and doctrine that I admire most are G. Campbell Morgan, J. C. Ryle, John Bunyan, etc.

R. Glorify the Word.

Act 13:48,“Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the Word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.”

Note: Glorify in Greek is doxazō which means to praise, extol, magnify, celebrate, honor, do honor to, hold in honor, make glorious, adorn with luster, clothe with splendor, render it excellent or illustrious; - it occurs 62 times in the New Testament. There is nothing like the Holy Bible because it is the Word of God. There is nothing like the Word of God because it is truth, nothing but the truth, trustworthy to accept and believe. To glorify the Word of the Lord is to glorify God. Those who glorify the Word of God do not commit idolatry (bibliolatry). To glorify the Word of God you cannot glorify the words of men. Those who glorify the words of men are guilty of idolatry. The church of Jesus Christ must obey the Word of God. 

If you repent of your sins and believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God, you have eternal life.

圣经

基督教建立和依据唯一的一本书即是圣经。圣经自称是神的话语,虽然圣使徒和圣人被神感动,受圣灵启示所圣经从来没有出于人意的,乃是神的圣人被圣灵感动说出神的话把它们写下来圣经是不错的, 因为神是不能错误的。它仅仅意味着圣经不是人的教,这是神的启示。 圣经分为两部分,旧约和新约。 旧约是犹太教的基础,主要是摩西律法和先知 - 从创世记到玛拉基书,一套39卷书。 新约是基督教的基础,由使徒在耶稣基督的升天后写完 - 马太福音到启示录,一套27卷书。 因此,圣经是总共66卷书。 不幸的是,犹太人仍然等待救世主降世,他们不知道或不相信耶稣基督是神的弥赛亚,大约在2000年前成为人子。 由于这个原因,犹太人只有相信旧约。 基督徒相信旧约和新约。 新约成全了旧约,因为耶稣基督成了摩西的律法。 所有先知谈到弥赛亚的都在耶稣基督的上成 圣经不像其他书籍,它是神给人类的信息。 圣经的中心信息是耶稣基督,神的儿子,被派来到世界为我们的死,从死里复活是为叫我们称义称义的意思就是不算为有罪。神不算为有罪的人是有福的。耶稣升天坐在神的右边,他又要再来审判世界与圣徒作王,直到永永远远。一些人文主义者与现代主义者和他们不信的恶心,希望有不同或更好的圣经。 没有其他的圣经,也没有更好的圣经,只有一个圣经就是耶和华的话。 人可能伪造一本好书。 没有其他好书,圣经是唯一最好的书;因为圣经具有生命之道,并教导神真理之路。

1 耶和华的话。

某个时间地点对一个特的人或一群人说话,它可以被引用作为耶和华的话。

创世纪15:1,“这 事 以 后, 耶 和 华 在 异 象 中 有 话 对 亚 伯 兰 说: 亚 伯 兰, 你 不 要 惧 怕, 我 是 你 的 盾 牌, 必 大 大 地 赏 赐 你。

注解:希伯来文说话是 dabar这意思是讲话,说说,话语,说的东西; - 它在旧约发生1439。希伯来语异象是 machazeh这意思是在狂喜的状态;它在旧约出现只有4次。

创世纪15:4,“耶 和 华 又 有 话 对 他 说, 这 人 必 不 成 为 你 的 后 嗣。你 本 身 所 生 的 才 成 为 你 的 后 嗣。

注解:的话语往往自己解释自己,并发出指令或命令。

告诉亚伯兰(后来成为亚伯拉罕)明确规定,不要以实玛利为他的继承人,但以撒是他自己独生的儿子作他的继承人。

出埃及记 8:1,“ 西 说: 老, 说:耶 说, 去, 我。

注解:主告诉摩西对法老说:耶和华这样说。 本标准公式是所有先知对任何人说的,从国王到以色列人:耶和华这样不是先知自己说。

出埃及记9:20,“法 老 的 臣 仆 中, 惧 怕 耶 和 华 这 话 的, 便 叫 他 的奴 仆 和 牲 畜 跑 进 家 来。

注解:耶和华对摩西说,明天他会造成非常大冰雹雨降在整个埃及的土地 法老的那些仆人怕主的话使他们的奴仆,他们的牲畜逃往房子。 这些没有死在外。 那些不主的话都死在外头。

民数记3:16,“于 是 摩 西 照 耶 和 华 所 吩 咐 的 数 点 他 们。

注解:耶和华所吩咐的就是耶和华的话。希伯来语吩咐是 tsavah 这意思是命令,发号施令; - 在旧约发生大约494。摩西照神的吩咐数点以色列人。服从神的话语就是服从神的命令。

民数记15:31,“因 他 藐 视 耶 和 华 的 言 语, 违 背 耶 和 华 的 命 令,那 人 总 要 剪 除。 他 的 罪 孽 要 归 到 他 身 上 。

注解:希伯来语藐视是 bazah这意思是鄙视,不叮,蔑视方面具有象征性的脚践踏; - 它发生在旧约大约43。 轻视主的话就是鄙视主,一个非常严重的罪。 任何人违背了主的命令,那人总要剪除。 剪除就是被杀害。的罪孽要归到身上。

民数记22:18,“ 巴 兰 回 答巴 勒 的 臣 仆 说: 巴 勒 就 是 将 他 满 屋 的 金 银 给 我, 我 行 大 事 小 事 也 不得 越 过 耶 和 华 我 神 的 命。

注解:没有先知可以越过主的话,做多一点或少一点都不可以。大事小事也不得越过神的命令。

在希伯来文越过是 `abar这意思是超过,交叉,跨越,违反,忽视或疏忽,省略,替代; - 它在旧约发生大约559 这是一个核心的原则:传教士不能而且不得超越圣经所写的。 推测或私人的解释是禁止的。

问题:如何做为神发言的先知?

民数记22:38,“巴 兰 说: 我 已 经 到你 这 里 来 了。 现 在 我 岂 能 擅 自 说 什 么 呢? 神 将 什 么 话 传 给 我, 我 就 说 什 么。

注解:在其他事上巴兰是做坏事;但他说得对,神将什么话传给他,他就说什么。 所有传教士不能擅自说什么,不能使用他们的想象力传基督耶稣的福音,他们必须坚持照圣经清楚地教导。 例如,一些虚假的传教士告诉我们,神是爱,因此没有地狱。耶稣基督说,马太福音10:28,“那 杀 身 体 不 能杀 灵 魂 的, 不 要 怕 他 们。 惟 有 能 把 身 体 和 灵 魂 都 灭 在 地 狱 里 的, 正 要 怕 他。耶稣说有地狱,神能把恶人的身体和灵魂都灭在地狱里。

彼得后书2:15,“他 们 离 弃 正 路, 就 走 差, 随 从 比 珥 之 子 巴 兰 的路, 巴 兰 就 是 那 贪 爱 不 义 之 工 价 的 先 知。

注解:离弃正路就走差。本圣文说,巴兰贪爱不义之工价,因此不要遵循巴兰的路。 华尔街的方式是随从巴兰的路,贪爱不义之工价。

犹大书1:11,“他 们 有 祸 了。 因 为 走 了 该 隐 的 道 路, 又 为 利 往巴 兰 的 错 谬 里 直 奔, 并 在 可 拉 的 背 叛 中 灭 亡 了 。

注解:巴兰的错误是为利冲去。你可以观察政府官员和商界人士,机构和个人等为利的热潮。华尔街在2008年创建金融和经济危机,是因为犯了巴兰的错误,他们贪爱不义的工资。

启示录2:14,“然 而 有 几 件 事 我 要 责 备 你, 因 为 在 你 那 里, 有人 服 从 了 巴 兰 的 教 训。 这 巴 兰 曾 教 导 巴 勒 将 绊 脚 石 放 在 以 色 列 人 面 前, 叫 他 们 吃 祭 偶 像 之 物, 行奸 淫 的 事。

注解:巴兰的教训引诱人们吃祭偶像的食品,行奸淫和触犯性不道德。一些虚假的中国传教士说祭祖,或吃提供给祖先和拜偶像的食物是可以的。有些假牧师说,离婚和再婚都可以。某些少数群体的变相,隐蔽或同意他们教会的领袖有婚外或同性恋事件。任何教训引诱崇拜偶像是巴兰的教训。西方,很少有崇拜偶像的人,但繁荣福音传教士鼓励人们贪爱钱 歌罗西书3:5,“所 以 要 治 死 你 们 在 地上 的 肢 体。 就 如 淫 乱, 污 秽, 邪 情, 恶 欲, 和 贪 婪, 贪 婪 就 与 拜 偶 像 一 样。

贪婪是等于崇拜偶像。 资本主义是基于贪婪,因此它不与基督教兼容。 西方的价值观是基于金钱,权力,性欲,因此他们不与信,望,和爱的基督教价值观兼容。华尔街的人都是贪婪的专家。要治死淫乱,污秽,邪情,恶欲,和贪婪。

申命记5:5-7,“那 时 我 站 在 耶 和 华 和 你 们 中 间, 要 将 耶 和 华 的话 传 给 你 们, 因 为 你 们 惧 怕 那 火, 没 有 上 山; 他 说: 我 是 耶 和 华 你 的神, 曾 将 你 从 埃 及 地 为 奴 之 家 领 出 来。 除 了 我 以 外, 你 不 可 有别 的 神。

注解:摩西站​​在神面前,以色列人宣布神的话语。埃及是为奴之家,世界是罪奴之家。

申命记30:14,“这 话 却 离 你 甚 近, 就 在 你 口 中, 在 你 心 里, 使 你可 以 遵 行 。

注解:如果神的话在你的心里和你的口中,这是非常接近你。

这是我们的职责,白天和夜晚默想主的话。

申命记34:5,“于 是, 耶 和 华 的 仆 人 摩 西 死 在 摩 押 地, 正 如 耶和 华 所 说 的。

注解:摩西在摩押地死是一个历史事实。 一切都是根据主的话语写在圣经上。 主说什么就是什么。

撒母耳记下7:4-5, “当 夜, 耶 和 华 的 话 临 到 拿 单 说: 你 去 告 诉 我 仆 人 大 卫, 说 耶 和 华 如 此 说: 你 岂 可 建 造 殿 宇 给 我 居 住 呢?

注解: 大卫想建立一个为耶和华的殿。即使你想做的事可能是好的,你最好听,耶和华如此说。因此,耶和华的话临到先知拿单,拿单告诉大卫主说的话。主的话是最后的权威。

撒母耳记下22:31,“至 于 神, 他 的 道 是 完 全 的。 耶 和 华 的 话 是 炼 净的。 凡 投 靠 他 的, 他 便 作 他 们 的 盾 牌。

注解:炼净的意是精,纯,可信的。神的道是完全的。

诗篇33:4,“因 为 耶 和 华 的 言 语 正 直。 凡 他 所 作 的, 尽 都 诚实。

注解:在希伯来文正直是yashar 这意思是直,正确,简单,公正,正义的,真实; - 它在旧约发生大约119

诗篇33:6, “诸 天 借 耶 和 华 的 命 而 造, 万 象 借 他 口 中 的 气 而成。

注解:主的话语是如此强大,诸天(宇宙)借耶和华的命而造,万象借他口中的气而成。

使徒行传8:25,“使 徒 既 证 明 主 道, 而 且 传 讲, 就 回 耶 路 撒 冷 去,一路 在 撒 玛 利 亚 好 些 村 庄 传 扬 福 音。

注解:希腊文道是logos这意思是有人说,言语,讲话,神的话,有关通过耶稣基督神国实现的救恩中的教义; - 它发生在新约大约330 许多传道人不知道如何去传主的道就是福音,所以他们鼓吹如何赢得朋友和影响别人,如何致富等等的道理。

使徒行传13:48,“外 邦 人 听 见 这 话, 就 欢 喜 了, 赞 美 神 的 道, 凡 预定 得 永 生 的 人 都 信 了。

注解:主的话让我高兴的是耶稣基督的福音,神的道叫信的人得永生。

希腊文预定是tassō这意思是安排,命令,判令,判定; - 它在新约中出现只有8次。 很多人由于神命定相信获得永生。 这并不是意思神注定一些人上天堂和其他人地狱。天堂或是地狱,你有一个选择。 你可以选择并不是意思你可以自己的善行功德自救,因为在神眼中没有人是足够好的。 这就是为什么神派他的儿子耶稣基督为罪人死,使所有相信接受基督耶稣的人可能通过神的恩典得救。神爱每个人,但不是每个人都会相信。一个教会的孩子表演说,耶稣爱他是因为他的长处。不,神爱罪人,不是因为他们是值得的有什么长处。没有人值得神的爱或配得神的恩典。从历代神知道谁会相信,谁不会相信。 耶稣基督说, 约翰福音8:24,“所 以 我对 你 们 说: 你 们 要 死 在 罪 中, 你 们 若 不 信 我 是 , 必 要 死 在 罪 中 。不信基督必要死在罪中。

约翰福音5:40,“然 而 你 们 不 肯 到 我 这 里 来 得 生 命。不肯不信必要死在罪中。

使徒行传15:35,“但 保 罗 和 巴 拿 巴, 仍 住 在 安 提 阿,和 许 多 别 人 一同 教 训 人,传 主 的 道。

注解:希腊文教训是 didaskō,意思是对别人说话以指导他们,提供教学话语,传授教训,理论灌输,说明或阐述一种道理; - 它在新约发生大约97 希腊文传道是 euaggelizō这意思是宣布弥赛亚宣布喜讯,在新约中使用,特别是它带来的好消息,世界的救主,如何基督为罪人死赎罪,从死里复活使信基督的人称义- 它在新约发生大约55 这个词宣道‘evangelism'是来自希腊文。 传道的重点是对那些不认识主的人宣传福音,而且是教育信徒提供指导 主的话是正确的和真实的。

马可福音16:15,“他 又 对 他 们 说: 你 们 往 普 天 下 去, 传 福 音 给 万民 听。( 万 民 原 文 作 凡 受 造 的 )

注解:服从主的命令,通过互联网,我世界宣布基督的福音,不是为了钱或者人的好评;只希望很多人会得救。 

2 主的圣言也被称为神的话。

撒母耳记上9:27,“二 人 下 到 城 角, 撒 母 耳 对 扫 罗 说: 要 吩 咐 仆 人 先 走 (仆 人 就 先 走 了)。 你 且 站 在 这 里, 等 我 将 神 的 话 传 与 你听。

注解:希伯来文传与是 shama`这意思是发表使听到,听到呼叫,召唤,给予重视,使宣讲; - 它在旧约发生了大约1159 宣布神的话语是一个严重和严肃的事情,远高于中国的宣布圣旨,因为当时以色列是在神权统治。

列王记上12:22-24,“但 神 的 话 临 到 神 人 示 玛 雅, 说你 去 告 诉 所 罗 门 的 儿 子 犹 大 王 罗 波 安 和 犹 大, 便 雅 悯 全 家, 并 其 余的 民 说耶 和 华 如 此 说, 你 们 不 可 上 去 与 你 们 的 弟 兄 以 色 列 人争 战。 各 归 各 家 去 吧。 因 为 这 事 出 于 我。 众 人 就 听 从 耶 和 华 的 话, 遵 着 耶 和 华 的 命 回 去 了。

注解:希伯来语听从是 shama`意思是注意听或有兴趣听,服从,理会; - 它在旧约发生大约1,159 神的话语临到神人。 神人以神说话。神说什么人必须服从。神的话语停止以色列王和犹大王之间的战争。

箴言30:5 ,“神 的 言 语, 句 句 都 是 炼 净 的, 投 靠 他 的, 他 便 作他 们 的 盾 牌。

注解:希伯来文炼净是 tsaraph这意思是精制,纯化,经测试,证明真的; -它在旧约发生了大约33。出于这个原因,肮脏和腐败的人不喜欢神的话语。

马可福音7:13,“这 就 是 你 们 承 接 遗 传, 废 了 神 的 道。 你 们 还 作许 多 这 样 的 事 。

注解:希腊文遗传是 paradosis 这意思是指令,戒律等,尤指是通过文字的书面或口传统,仪式;这在犹太人的意见后作了口头交付,继承摩西和口头传递给后代的戒律,无论是书面说明并扩大法律,因为他们是被尊敬与平等服从; - 它发生在新约大约13。人的遗传能以神圣的教义对立。在耶稣的时代,法利赛人用仪式和传统废掉神的话语。在中国有许多习俗和传统,违背了神的话语。你不能自称为基督徒,如台湾领袖一样崇拜偶像。如果你是一个信仰佛教或道教的人,那么你就不是一个基督徒。佛教徒和道教徒可能成为基督徒,基督徒永远不能成为佛教徒或道教徒或其他宗教徒。

以赛亚书40:8,“草 必 枯 干, 花 必 凋 残, 惟 有 我 们 神 的 话, 必 永 远立 定。

注解:男人像草枯萎,美丽的女人像花朵凋残。惟有神的话,永远立定。

在希伯来语立定是 quwm这意思是站起来,维护自己,坚持,建立,立场坚定,有效,坚守; - 它在旧约发生大约628。帝国崩溃,财富飞走,世界一切都在过去,但神的话永远立定。

路加福音3:2,“ 司, 时, 里, 他。

注解:对于一个先知,最重要的是,神的话语临到他,他在哪里不要紧,城市或荒野。现在,基督耶稣的启示是完整的,没有人可以说神的话语临到他是与已经写的圣经不同的。仍然可以发生,神可在某时期特殊的对个人启示。一个特殊的启示不能违背一般的启示。例如,如果你声称神给你一个特殊的启示,耶稣基督将在2011721日回来 - 你必定是一个假先知,因为耶稣基督明确的说, 马太福音24:36,“但 那 日子, 那 时 辰, 没 有 人 知 道, 连 天 上 的 使 者 也 不 知 道, 子 也 不 知 道, 惟 独 父 知 道。当耶稣基督在世上时发出这项声明,他是在卑微人子的状态;我相信,经过复活和升天的崇高耶稣基督知道当他回来时的那一天。 耶稣基督说, 启示录22:12,“看 哪, 我必 快 来。 赏 罚 在 我, 要 照 各 人 所 行 的 报 应 他。

注解:耶稣基督说他必快来,这证明他知道什么时候他要再来。

路加福音5:1,“耶 稣 站 在 革 尼 撒 勒 湖 边, 众 人 拥 挤 他, 要 听 神的 道。

注解:当耶稣基督发言,说出神的话。耶稣基督的话就是神的话。

路加福音8:11,“这 比 喻 乃 是 这 样。 种 子 就 是 神 的 道。

注解:希腊文比喻是 parabolē, 这意思是把一件事放置另一侧一件事与另一件相比图画说明道理,一个世间的故事有天堂的含义; - 它在新约发生大约50次。 当圣经说,这是一个比喻,它就应该被视为一个比喻。 耶稣基督把神的道与种子比较。 种子是用来作为神的道的比喻。 基督耶稣下面赐给我们最有趣和有启发性的解释。 瞧瞧你是什么样的人呢?

路加福音8:12,“那 些 在 路 旁 的, 就 是 人 听 了 道, 随 后 魔 鬼 来, 从他 们 心 里 把 道 夺 去, 恐 怕 他 们 信 了 得 救。

注解:魔鬼的工作是从人的心里夺去神的道。要确保你没有不信的恶心,所以你必须相信得救。

路加福音8:21,“耶 稣 回 答 说: 听 了 神 之 道 而 遵 行 的 人, 就 是 我 的母 亲, 我 的 弟 兄 了。

注:耶稣基督提拔那些听神的道而遵行的人,为他的母亲和弟兄。顺服神是比人类的关系还重要。

路加福音11:28,“耶 稣 说: 是, 却 还 不如 听 神 之 道 而 遵 守 的 人 有 福。”

注解:遵守在希腊文是 phylassō 这意思是看守,观察即关心,服从不违反; -它发生在新约大约30次。 那些听到神的话语和遵守的人有福了。

使徒行传4:31, “祷 告 完 了, 聚 会 的 地 方 震 动, 他 们 就 都 被 圣 灵 充满, 放 胆 讲 论 神 的 道。

注解:希腊文放胆讲论是 parrēsia 这意思是自由发言,公开发言,坦率地说,即不得隐瞒,毫不含糊或迂回,无所畏惧的信心;- 它在新约发生大约31次。 圣灵充满不是在神面前显示自己的特殊地位或优势,乃是为了领受从上头来的能 力,放胆讲论神的道。圣经说:众人都犯了罪,亏缺神的荣耀,没有例外,包括你和我,包括甘地或是你国家最崇敬的领袖。 罪的工价就是死,如果您有没有罪,你就不会死。你会死,因为你犯了罪,但神的恩赐在基督里是永生。

使徒行传6:2,“十 二 使 徒 叫 众 门 徒 来, 对 他 们 说: 我 们 撇 下 神 的 道,去 管 理 饭 食,原 是 不 合 宜 的。

注解:希腊文合宜是 arestos 这意思是怡人,适合,适当的; - 它发生在新约只有4次。 很少有东西是合宜的,大多数事情都是不合宜的。 宣讲神的话语是最合宜的,这并不是意思每个人都将成为一个牧师传道。不是每个人都被称为是一个布道家,但每一个基督徒是基督的见证。十二使徒是很特别的,蒙召被神选为宣讲神的话语。他们做其他什么都是不合宜的,不正确的;并不是意管理饭食是不合宜的。无论神任命你什么都是合宜的和正确的。

使徒行传6:4,“但 我 们 要 专 心 以 祈 祷 传 道 为 事。

注解:希腊文为事是 diakonia这意思是神的命令,通过以祈祷传道为事,宣讲和促进福音服务人,使徒和其行政职务; - 它发生在新约大约34 使徒蒙召以传道为事,从事诱导人接受耶稣基督的救赎与神和好。今天有些人蒙召传神的道。 职业传教士是很可怜的人;繁荣福音的传教士是虚假的传教士。

使徒行传6:7,“神 的 道 兴 旺 起 来。 在 耶 路 撒 冷 门 徒 数 目 加 增 的甚 多。 也 有 许 多 祭 司 信 从 了 这 道。

注解:有传教士传福音,为了建立属灵的帝国使自己的子女可继承。 还有传教士为金钱和荣耀建立大型教堂。信徒顺服的命令,传播神的福音使人们可以得救。

使徒行传10:36“神 借着 耶 稣 基 督 (他 是 万 有 的 主) 传 和 平 的 福 音, 将 这 道 赐 给 以 色 列 人。” 

约翰福音3:34,“ 的, 话。 他, 的。

注解:耶稣大能是没有限量的。万有的主是没有限量的。

使徒行传11:1,“使 兄, 道。”

注解:在希腊文领受 dechomai,意思是抓住,拿,要听,拥抱,接受,作为自己的; - 它发生在新约大约59 外邦人就是​​所有非犹太人。 犹太人到外邦人福音必须领受,都为了得救。

使徒行传12:24,“神 的 道 日 见 兴 旺, 越 发 广 传。”

注解:希腊文兴旺是 auxanō,这意思是增加,越来越大; - 它在新约发生大约22。现在你可以问:神的话语能否增长? 请记住,应用圣经的原则,让圣经来解释圣经。 你还记得耶稣的话? 路加福音8:11,“ 这 比 喻 乃 是 这 样。 种 子 就 是 神 的 道。”

这意思是相信基督耶稣的人数在成长和成倍增加。

使徒行传13:5,“到 了 撒 拉 米, 就 在 犹 太 人 各 会 堂 里 传 讲 神 的 道。 也 有 约 翰 作 他 们 的 帮 手。”

注解:从开始耶稣在殿和犹太人的会堂传道教训早期的使徒和门徒也在圣殿和犹太人的会堂,也在家庭和各地传扬神的话语。后来基督聚会的场所设立,跟犹太人的会堂分开

使徒行传13:7,“  在, 人。 来, 道。

注解:希腊语通达是 synetos这意思是有理解,智能,智慧,经验教训,谨慎; - 它发生在新约只有4次。 在希腊文寻求epizēteō,意思是寻找,搜索,努力寻求,愿望,渴望; - 它发生在新约大约14。一个聪明的人应该寻求听到神的话语。不通达的人不神的道。

使徒行传13:44,“到 下 安 息 日, 合 城 的 人, 几 乎 都 来 聚 集, 要 听 神的 道。

注解:对犹太人,安息日是个好日子,因为这是一个休息日来聚集,要听神的话。这是很明显的,几乎安提阿全城的人聚集,来听保罗和巴拿巴传神的道,即使没有一个布道运动的组织,也没有邀请贵宾,电影或体育明星,也没有娱乐。

使徒行传13:46,“保 罗 和 巴 拿 巴 放 胆 说, 神 的 道 先 讲 给 你 们, 原是 应 当 的, 只 因 你 们 弃 绝 这 道, 断 定 自 己 不 配 得 永 生, 我 们 就 转 向 外 邦 人 去。

注解:谁拒绝神的话语,就断定自己不配得永生。这不是神拒绝任何人,乃是那些拒绝神话语的人,断定自己不配得永生。可怕的真理,人有可能断定自己不配,把自己抛出,以永恒的惩罚谴责自己。

罗马书9:6-8,“这 不 是 说 神 的 话 落 了 空。 因 为 从 以 色 列 生 的,不 都 是 以 色 列 人。  也 不 因 为 是 亚 伯 拉 罕 的 后 裔, 就 都 作他 的 儿 女。 惟 独 从 以 撒 生 的, 才 要 称 为 你 的 后 裔。  这 就 是 说,肉 身 所 生 的 儿 女, 不 是 神 的 儿 女。 惟 独 那 应 许 的 儿 女, 才 算 是 后 裔。

注解:本经文解释为什么一些犹太人拒绝基督,和为什么许多外邦人不相信。 亚伯拉罕的后裔从以撒生的,才是亚伯拉罕的后裔。 这不是神的话落了空,这是因为从以色列生的,不都是以色列人。如果你不相信,因为你不是耶稣的羊,你不是神的儿女。

哥林多后书2:17,“我 们 不 像 那 许 多 人, 为 利 混 乱 神 的 道。 乃 是 由于 诚 实,由 于 神,在 神 面 前 凭 着 基 督 讲 道。

注解:在希腊文为利混乱是 kapēleuō这意思是一个零售商,用神的话语卖金钱,任何东西贸易,试图买卖圣真理为得利的门路,腐败,掺假; - 它发生在新约只有一次。许多圣经学者和神学家,谬讲神的道理是有罪的。我相信贸易神的话语是错误的,为利混乱神的道是有罪的。例如,圣经的版权所有是错误的,因为神没有把圣经的版权给任何人。掺假你版本的圣经为了赚钱也是错误的 - 圣经根据某某大师的特版。任何牧师或圣经学者,兜售神的道致富是非常严重的错误。在保罗的时代有许多为利混乱神的道的人;今天在美国特别更多,- 一个资本主义的粪坑。

以弗所书6:17,“并 戴 上 救 恩 的 头 盔,拿 着 圣 灵 的 宝 剑, 就 是 神 的道。

注解:希腊文宝剑是 machaira 这意思是战争的武器用来排斥或攻击; - 它发生在新约大约29次。 圣灵的宝剑就是神的道,是与圣灵制胜犯罪的冲动,证明了它的能力,摧毁虚假教义和谎言的疗效。耶稣用神的道击败了魔鬼的的诱惑。

提摩太前书4:5,“ 求, 了。

注解:道有能力使我们的心和灵魂圣洁。最好的书能鼓舞人,但从来没有使人圣洁的。最的书使放纵欲望和贪婪。

提摩太后书2:9,“我 为 这 福 音 受 苦 难, 甚 至 被 捆 绑, 像 犯 人 一 样。然 而 神 的 道, 却 不 被 捆 绑。

注解:希腊文捆绑是deō意思是结合,领带,绑住,系与连锁,妨碍; - 它在新约发生大约44次。没有什么在世界上可以捆绑,链条或阻碍神的话语。为什么呢?

希伯来书4:12,“神 的 道 是 活 泼 的, 是 有 功 效 的, 比 一 切 两 刃 的剑 更 快, 甚 至 魂 与 灵, 骨 节 与 骨 髓, 都 能 刺 入 剖 开, 连 心 中 的 思 念 和 主 意, 都 能 辨 明。

注解:希腊文活泼是zaō这意思是有本身的重要力量,充满活力,强大,高效,积极,有力,有效; - 它发生在新约大约143次。 希腊文有功效是 energēs 这意思是活跃,有效力; - 它在新约出现只有3次。 希腊文辨明是 kritikos 这意思是适合判断,判断熟练; - 它在新约只发生了一次。一个对神的道熟练的人,也精于判断真理与谬误之间,分辨是非和善恶。

3 神的话语也被称为

马可福音4:19,“后 来 有 世 上 的 思 虑, 钱 财 的 迷 惑, 和 别 样 的 私欲, 进 来 把 道 挤 住 了, 就 不 能 结 实 。

注解::有三样东西把道挤住就不能结实:世上的思虑,钱财的迷惑,和别样的私欲。一个人越世俗,一个人越爱世界和世界上的事,他就越不可能成为一个卓有成效的信徒。 出于这个原因,耶稣说, 马可福音10:25,“骆 驼 穿 过 针 的 眼, 比财 主 进 神 的 国, 还 容 易 呢。美国最富有的一千人,比世界上十亿最贫穷的人有更多的钱。也许在美国一千中最富有的人,有一些是基督徒,这些基督徒会不会为基督放弃他们的财富? 相反,有千百亿人想成为富豪,相信神会给他们财富,如果他们照繁荣传教士的建议多多奉献。假福音!受了钱财的迷惑!

约翰福音1:14,“道 成 了 肉 身 住 在 我 们 中 间, 充 充 满 满 的 有 恩 典有 真 理。我 们 也 见 过 他 的 荣 光,正 是 父 独 生 子 的 荣 光 。

注解:虽然这个词‘道’使用在 马可福音4:19  约翰福音1:14 在原来的语言logos是相同的字,但它有不同的含义。 重要的是要区分道作为文字 - 通常所指的是写的道,圣经或圣文,神的话语。道也指耶稣基督,神的儿子,神的道,神成为人- 活的道。在 马可福音4:19 指的是神的话出于对神的嘴,而 约翰福音1:14 指的是三位一体神的第二位,神成为人,道成了肉身。

歌罗西书4:3,“也 要 为 我 们 祷 告, 求 神 给 我 们 开 传 道 的 门, 能以 讲 基 督 的 奥 秘,( 我 为 此 被 捆 锁 )。

注解:传福音就是讲基督的奥秘。基督是神的奥秘。

提摩太前书 5:17,“那 善 于 管 理 教 会 的 长 老, 当 以 为 配 受 加 倍 的 敬奉。 那 劳 苦 传 道 教 导 人 的, 更 当 如 此 。

注意:那些真正宣讲耶稣基督,神的话劳苦,和耶稣基督的教义教导人的,是配受加倍的敬奉。

提摩太后书4:2,“务 要 传 道。 无 论 得 时 不 得 时, 总 要 专 心, 并 用 百般 的 忍 耐, 各 样 的 教 训, 责 备 人, 警 戒 人, 劝 勉 人。

注解:希腊文传道是 kēryssō,这意思是宣布,发布; - 它发生在新约大约61次。 我在一个谦卑的方式服基督,通过互联网我宣布和发布神的道。 传道的方法就是用百般的忍耐,各样的教训责备,警戒,劝勉。 希腊文责备是 

elegchō这意思是驳斥,带来光明,揭露,挑剔,展示一个人的错; - 它发生在新约大约17次。 在希腊文警戒是 epitimaō,这意思是责备,谴责,严厉谴责,训诫;- 它发生在新约大约29次。 在希腊文劝勉是 parakaleō这意思是告诫,说服,直接说话; - 它发生在新约大约109次。 你可以看出为什么反对罪恶的传道是不受欢迎的。

提多书1:3,“到 了 日 期, 借 着 传 扬 的 工 夫, 把 他 的 道 显 明 了。这 传 扬 的 责 任,是 按 着 神 我 们 救 主 的 命 令 交 托 了 我。

注解:在希腊文显明是 phaneroō这意思是借着传扬的工夫使人知道; - 它发生在新约大约49次。 神的话语只能传道和教导使人知道。 我们的神救主命令信徒传福音每一个人物。

彼得前书2:2,“就 要 爱 慕 那 纯 净 的 灵 奶, 像 才 生 的 婴 孩 爱 慕 奶一 样, 叫 你 们 因 此 渐 长, 以 致 得 救。

注解:正如婴儿成长需要牛奶,所以在基督的婴孩需要那纯净的灵奶(神的道)增长。传教士的任务是要宣扬基督教的基本信仰。在许多教会中有这么多失败的传道人,因为他们不能喂养教会神的道。以弗所书4:15,“惟 用 爱 心 说 诚 实 话,凡事 长 进,连 于 元 首 基 督。

注解:我们在所有的事情上要长进,连于元首基督。不是连于什么人或什么组织。

彼得后书3:7,“但 现 在 的 天 地, 还 是 凭 着 那 命 存 留, 直 留 到 不敬 虔 之 人 受 审 判 遭 沉 沦 的 日 子, 用 火 焚 烧。

注解:宇宙和地球一起基督而立,用他权能的命令托住万有。天地在审判的日子将被火焚烧,那就是不敬虔之人遭沉沦的日子。所有拒绝基督的人就是不敬虔之人。所有不敬虔之人就要受审判遭沉沦。

约翰一书2:5,“凡 遵 守 主 道 的, 爱 神 的 心 在 他 里 面 实 在 是 完 全的, 从 此 我 们 知 道 我 们 是 在 主 里 面。

注解:要爱神,你必须遵守主的道。遵守在希腊文是tēreō,这意思是观察,保存和坚定立场,坚守,跟踪; - 它发生在新约大约75次。 耶稣说, 

约翰福音14:15,“你 们 若 爱 我, 就 必 遵 守 我 的 命 令。”

歌罗西书4:3,“也 要 为 我 们 祷 告, 求 神 给 我 们 开 传 道 的 门, 能以 讲 基 督 的 奥 秘,(我 为 此 被 捆 锁)。福音就是基督的奥秘。

4 神的话语是真理的道。

提摩太后书2:15,“你 当 竭 力, 在 神 面 前 得 蒙 喜 悦, 作 无 愧 的 工 人,按 着 正 意 分 解 真 理 的 道。

注解:按着正意分解真理之道的就是神无愧的工人。

诗篇119:160,“你 话 的 总 纲 是 真 实。 你 一 切 公 义 的 典 章 是 永 远长 存。

注解:圣经的总纲是真理。神的话是真实。

哥林多后书 6:7“真 实 的 道 理, 神 的 大 能。 仁 义 的 兵 器 在 左 在 右 。

以弗所书1:13,“你 们 既 听 见 真 理 的 道, 就 是 那 叫 你 们 得 救 的 福音, 也 信 了 基 督, 既 然 信 他, 就 受 了 所 应 许 的 圣 灵 为 印 记。

注解:唯一证明你是得救的,就是圣灵住在你里面为印记叫我们得救的福音是真实的道理,神的大能。

雅各书1:18,“他 按 自 己 的 旨 意, 用 真 道 生 了 我 们, 叫 我 们 在他 所 造 的 万 物 中, 好 像 初 熟 的 果 子。

注解:重生就是圣灵用真道生了我们。

5 神的话语是救世的道。

使徒行传13:26,“弟 兄 们, 亚 伯 拉 罕 的 子 孙, 和 你 们 中 间 敬 畏 神的 人 哪, 这 救 世 的 道, 是 传 给 我 们 的。

注解:希腊文拯救是 sōtēria这意思是基督徒目前靠着神儿子的血,得蒙救赎,罪过得以赦免,拥有新生命就是灵魂的拯救;和未来的救赎,基督徒的总和利益和祝福,从尘世和身体的一切弊病赎回,可见基督亲自从天返回,享受神国的完善和永恒的天堂 ;- 它发生在新约大约45次。 

6 神的话语也被称为天国的道理。

马太福音13:19,“凡 听 见 天 国 道 理 不 明 白 的, 那 恶 者 就 来, 把 所撒 在 他 心 里 的 夺 了 去。 这 就 是 撒 在 路 旁 的 了。

注解:王国是神的王国,或者天国。耶稣基督的福音是天国的道理。

约翰福音18:36,“耶 稣 回 答 说: 我 的 国 不 属 这 世 界。 我 的 国 若 属这 世 界, 我 的 臣 仆 必 要 争 战, 使 我 不 至 于 被 交 给 犹 太 人。 只 是 我 的 国 不 属 这 世 界。

如果你寻求这个世界的国,你不是跟随耶稣 出于这个原因,帝国主义,殖民主义,霸权主义,资本主义,恐怖主义等等,都不是属于基督,不能属于基督徒。 

启示录11:15,“第 七 位 天 使 吹 号, 天 上 就 有 大 声 音 说, 世 上 的国, 成 了 我 主 和 主 基 督 的 国。 他 要 作 王, 直 到 永 永 远 远。注解:美国,英国,中国,印度,巴西,法国,德国,日本等等很快就会消失,永远消失,成为我们的神和主基督的国。耶稣基督要和圣徒作王,直到永永远 远。

7 这道也叫神的恩道。

使徒行传14:3,“二 人 在 那 里 住 了 多 日, 倚 靠 主 放 胆 讲 道。 主 借他 们 的 手, 施 行 神 迹 奇 事, 证 明 他 的 恩 道。

注解:希腊文恩是 charis这意思是在神的仁慈善良,祂施加圣洁的影响灵魂,使他们转向基督,保持加强使他们结果,在基督的信仰,知识,爱心上成长,点燃他们基督徒美德的运动; - 它发生在新约大约156次。 神的话语是他的恩道,因为我们是基督耶稣白白得救。

8 这道也被称为福音之道。

使徒行传15:7“辩 论已 经 多 了, 彼 得 就 起 来, 说: 诸 位 弟 兄, 你 们 知 道 神 早 已 在 你 们 中 间 拣 选 了 我, 叫 外 邦 人 从 我 口 中得 听 福 音 之 道, 而 且 相 信。

歌罗西书1:5,“是 为 那 给 你 们 存 在 天 上 的 盼 望。 这 盼 望 就 是 你们 从 前 在 福 音 真 理 的 道 上 所 听 见 的 。”

注解:耶稣的福音是真理的道,十分可以相信。

9 这道也被称为生命的道。

腓立比书2:16,“将 生 命 的 道 表 明 出 来, 叫 我 在 基 督 的 日 子, 好夸 我 没 有 空 跑, 也 没 有 徒 劳。

注解:相信生命之道的人不至灭亡,反得永生。那些坚守生命之道的,不空跑也不徒劳。 没有神,没有生命之道的人,总有一天会发现他们空跑或徒劳。 是不是很可怕在走到人生尽头时,世界有财富有权势的人,忽然意识到他们空跑和徒劳。那些寻求金钱,权力和性欲的人将空跑和徒劳,最后徒劳无益因为他们没有生命之道。 

10 神的话语也被称为圣经。

圣经是神的话语,一段经节被称为经文,全部神圣的著作被称为圣经。

但以理书9:2,“就 是 他 在 位 第 一 年, 我 但 以 理 从 书 上 得 知 耶 和华 的 话 临 到 先 知 耶 利 米, 论 耶 路 撒 冷 荒 凉 的 年 数, 七 十 年 为 满。

注解:希伯来文圣经是 cepher 这意思是书籍,条幅,滚动书,预言书籍,书籍,圣书; - 它发生在旧约大约184次。 同样的原词是用在  

出埃及记17:14,“耶 和 华 对 摩 西 说: 我要 将 亚 玛 力 的 名 号 从 天 下 全 然 涂 抹 了, 你 要 将 这 话 写 在 书 上 作 纪 念 , 又 念 给 约 书 亚 听 。”

注解:这是圣经的起源,神告诉摩西写在书上。 同样的词是用在 出埃及记24:7,“又将 约 书 念 给 百 姓 听。 他 们 说: 耶 和 华 所 吩 咐 的, 我 们 都 必 遵 行。

注解:旧约的部分被称为约书 (盟约之书)。 同样的词是用在 申命记31:24-26,“摩 西将 这 律 法 的 话 写 在 书 上, 及 至 写 完 了, 就 吩 咐 抬 耶 和 华 约 柜 的利 未 人 说将 这 律 法 书 放 在 耶 和 华 你 们 神 的 约 柜 旁, 可 以 在 那里 见 证 以 色 列 人 的 不 是 。

注解:大概在这时候,Penteteuch(摩西五经)已经写完成。 同样的词是用在 

约书亚记1:8,“这 律 法 书 不 可 离 开 你 的 口, 总 要 昼 夜 思 想, 好使 你 谨 守 遵 行 这 书 上 所 写 的 一 切 话。 如 此, 你 的 道 路 就 可 以 亨 通, 凡 事 顺 利。”

注解:到约书亚 - 摩西的继承人的时候,Penteteuch摩西五经必须已经写完成了。 所以摩西的书被称为律法书,或者是摩西的律法书,或者是神的律法书,或是耶和华的律法书,或是圣经。 在旧约中提到其他的书籍如雅煞珥书,拿单的书,迦得的书,先知示玛雅和先见易多的史记,都是真实的历史书籍,但他们并不视为圣经。

但以理书10:21,“但 我 要 将 那 录 在 真 确 书 上 的 事 告 诉 你。 除 了 你们 的 大 君 米 迦 勒 之 外, 没 有 帮 助 我 抵 挡 这 两 魔 君 的。

注解:希伯来文圣经是 kathab 这就是真确书; - 它发生在旧约大约17次。 圣经是真理的圣经,真确书。

列王记下23:21,“王 吩 咐 众 民 说: 你们 当 照 这 约 书 上 所 写 的, 向 耶 和 华 你 们 的 神 守 逾 越 节 。

注解:正如书上所写的是指圣经所说的。

马太福音21:42, “耶 稣 说: 经 上 写着, 匠 人 所 弃 的 石 头, 已 作 了 房 角 的 头 块 石 头。 这 是 主 所 作 的, 在 我 们 眼 中 看 为 希 奇。 这 经 你 们 没有 念 过 吗 ?

注解:希腊文圣经是 graphē,这意思是圣书,用来表示无论是经书本身,还是它的内容,某部分或圣节经文; - 它发生在新约大约51次。 同样的原词使用在 

马太福音21:42 也用于 哥林多前书15:3-4,“我 当 日 所 领 受 又传 给 你 们 的, 第 一, 就 是 基 督 照 圣 经 所 说, 为 我 们 的 罪 死 了。 而且 埋 葬 了。 又 照 圣 经 所 说, 第 三 天 复 活 了 。”

基督徒所相信的一切,都是根据圣经所说的。基督教完全是照圣经所说的。没有圣经就没有基督教。第一圣经所说的就是,基督为我们的罪死了,而且埋葬了。又照圣经所说,第三天复活了。

约翰福音6:45,“在 先 知 书 上 写 着 说: 他们 都 要 蒙 神 的 教 训。 凡 听 见 父 之 教 训 又 学 习 的, 就 到 我 这 里 来。”

注解:这是耶稣经常使用的公式:经 上 记 着 说’。但要谨防,魔鬼也会使用同样的公式来歪曲神的话语。

马太福音22:29 ,“耶 稣 回 答 说: 你 们错 了。 因 为 不 明 白 圣 经, 也 不 晓 得 神 的 大 能。”

注解:谁不明白圣经,谁就不晓得神的大能。谁不明白圣经,不晓得神的大能的必然是错误的。不信的科学家和学者不知道他们错

马太福音26:56,“但 这 一 切 的 事 成 就 了, 为 要 应 验 先 知 书 上 的 话。当 下 门 徒 都 离 开 他 逃 走 了。”

注解:在希腊文成就是 plēroō这意思是通过,批准,完成; - 它发生在新约大约90次。

马可福音15:28,“这 就 应 了 经 上 的 话 说, 他 被 列 在 罪 犯 之 中。”

注解:在罪犯之中指两个强盗,耶稣钉在十字架上之间的两个强盗。

路加福音24:27,“ 于 是 从 摩西 和 众 先 知 起,凡 经 上 所 指 着 自 己 的 话, 都 给 他 们 讲 解 明 白 了。”

注解:从摩西到圣经所有的先知,耶稣基督是神对人类的中心思想 - 弥赛亚,是基督。

耶稣基督用圣经(旧约,当时新约还不存在)来解释关于自己的话。圣经的中心信息是耶稣基督,神的儿子,被送往世界为人类的罪死在十字架上,使那些忏悔并相信他的,因神的恩得称为义,可以得永生。

路加福音24:45,“于 是 耶 稣 开 他 们 的 心 窍, 使 他 们 能 明 白 圣 经。”

注解:希腊文开心窍是 dianoigō这意思是开放头脑,即造成理解事情; - 它在新约中出现只有8次。 这就解释了为什么否则聪明的科学家和学者,无法理解圣经,因为他们的心窍还没有开。 哥林多后书4:4,“此 等 不 信 之 人, 被 这世 界 的 神 弄 瞎 了 心 眼, 不 叫 基 督 荣 耀 福 音 的 光 照 着 他 们。 基 督 本 是 神 的 像 。” 在希腊文明白是 syniēmi这意思是理解,汇集,知觉,将洞察力与知觉的东西联合起来; - 它在新约发生大约26次。 不管你是谁,除非神打开你的心窍,你不能明白圣经。 圣经是神圣的,肉体的心灵无法理解。最可怕的,凡不信之人,被这世界的神弄瞎了心眼,不叫基督荣耀 福音的光照着他们。瞎子是看不见的。神是个灵,基督本是神的像。

约翰福音2:22,“所 以 到 他 从 死 里 复 活 以 后, 门 徒 就 想 起 他 说 过这 话, 便 信 了 圣 经 和 耶 稣 所 说 的。”

注解:基督教的信仰是基于圣经(旧约)和耶稣的话语(新约)为基础。没有圣经,就没有基督教。

约翰福音5:39,“你 们 查 考 圣 经。( 或 作 应 当 查 考 圣 经 ) 因 你 们以 为 内 中 有 永 生。 给 我 作 见 证 的 就 是 这 经。”

注解:希腊文查考是 eraunaō这意思是审查,搜索,通过看,仔细检查,认真; - 在新约中出现只有6次。 我在我的网站提供所有的文章,都基于这一方法,搜索所有有关圣经说主题的内容。希腊文作证是 martyreō这意思是见证,证明其为正确,确认由神的灵感或启示; - 它发生在新约大约79次。 圣经(旧约和新约)为耶稣作见证。

约翰福音7:38,“信 我 的 人, 就 如 经 上 所 说, 从 他 腹 中 要 流 出 活水 的 江 河 来。”

注解:如经上说,就是如此。正如经上记着说,就是这样。活水的江河是指圣灵。

约翰福音7:42,“经 上 岂 不 是 说: 基 督 是 大 卫 的 后 裔, 从 大 卫 本乡 伯 利 恒 出 来 的 吗?”

注解:经上所说的都是真的,大卫是一个真实的历史人物。圣经说的都是真的,因为伯利恒是一个真实的地方。

约翰福音10:35,“经 上 的 话 是 不 能 废 的。 若 那 些 承 受 神 道 的 人,尚 且 称 为 神,”

注解:希腊文废是 lyō 这意思是分手,解散,撤销,颠覆,消除,拆除,破坏,剥夺; - 它发生在新约大约43次。你可以烧圣经,但你无法摧毁圣经。 你可以撕裂圣经,但你不能毁灭圣经。 圣经不能被打破或打倒,不能废的。

约翰福音13:18,“我 这 话 不 是 指 着 你 们 众 人 说 的。 我 知 道 我 所 拣选 的 是 谁。 现 在 要 应 验 经 上 的 话, 说: 同 我 吃 饭 的 人, 用 脚 踢 我。”

注解:耶稣从起头就知道谁要卖他。一切都发生如经上所说它会发生,使经上的话应验。

约翰福音17:12,“我 与 他 们 同 在 的 时 候, 因 你 所 赐 给 我 的 名, 保守 了 他 们, 我 也 护 卫 了 他 们, 其 中 除 了 那 灭 亡 之 子, 没 有 一 个 灭 亡 的。 好 叫 经 上 的 话 得 应 验。”

注解:在基督里信徒没有失去一个,除了灭亡之子,叛徒犹大。

约翰福音19:28,“这 事 以 后, 耶 稣 知 道 各 样 的 事 已 经 成 了, 为 要使 经 上 的 话 应 验, 就 说: 我 渴 了。”

注解:神的知识是完美的,从开始到结束他知道了解一切。 没有什么使神吓了一跳,一切必须完成的是完成了,或将要完成。

约翰福音19:36,“这 些 事 成 了, 为 要 应 验 经 上 的 话 说, 他 的 骨 头,一 根 也 不 可 折 断。”

注解:罗马士兵打断了强盗的骨头,他们的两个腿折断,因为圣经预言耶稣的骨头,一根也不可折断。 诗篇34:20,“又 保 全 他 一 身 的 骨 头,连 一 根 也 不 折 断。

约翰福音20:9,“因 为 他 们 还 不 明 白 圣 经 的 意 思, 就 是 耶 稣 必 要 从 死 里 复 活。

注解:由于门徒尚未知道,或理解圣经的意思,基督救世主必须死,从死里复活。 他们不知道圣经说,耶稣死是神的羔羊为罪人死,从死里复活以获得宽恕,和为我升天替我们在神面前说情。读圣经要明白圣经的意思。

使徒行传8:32,“他 所 念 的 那 段 经, 说: 他像 羊 被 牵 到 宰 杀 之 地, 又 像 羊 羔 在 剪 毛 的 人 手 下 无 声, 他 也 是 这 样 不 开 口。

注解:后来门徒明白圣经的意思。要明白圣经的意思,需要圣灵开我们的心窍。

使徒行传8:35,“腓 利 就 开 口 从 这 经 上 起, 对 他 传 讲 耶 稣。”

使徒行传17:11,“这 地 方 的 人, 贤 于 帖 撒 罗 尼 迦 的 人, 甘 心 领 受这 道, 天 天 考 查 圣 经, 要 晓 得 这 道, 是 与 不 是。”

注解:希腊文考查是 anakrino这意思是调查,检查,问题调查,审核,浏览,搜索; - 它在新约发生16次。相信和检查圣经是高尚的情操,看看情况是否如此正如圣经所说。你千万不要盲目地接受你的牧师或传道说,你需要考查他们是否按照圣经说。当一个牧师说,圣经并不清楚是否崇拜祖先是错误的,他是大错误的,不知道圣经。这些牧师支持政治领导人声称自己是一个基督徒,但他公开崇拜偶像是错误的。正确的方法研究圣经,是看圣经说什么,而不是你想说什么,也不是你认为应该说什么。你不能说犯作什么是圣经没有说,或者说圣经所记载不清楚。在希腊文甘心是 prothymia这意思是倾向,愿意准备的头脑,热情,有心; - 它发生在新约只有5次。 我们必须甘心接受圣经所说的,因为圣经是神的话。

使徒行传18:28,“在 众 人 面 前 极 有 能 力, 驳 倒 犹 太 人, 引 圣 经 证明 耶 稣 是 基 督。”

注解:阿波罗是有学问的,最能讲解圣经,他擅长圣经的知识。 驳倒在希腊文 diakatelegchomai 这意思是驳斥与竞争和努力,证明一个人是错误的; -它在新约只发生一次。 在希腊文证明是 epideiknymi这意思是显示,展示,表明; - 它发生在新约只有9次。 每一个牧师应该能够引用圣经,证明耶稣是基督 - 弥赛亚。圣经中心的思想是,耶稣是基督,是神的儿子,世界的救主。

罗马书4:3,“ 经 上 说 什么 呢? 说: 亚 伯 拉 罕 信 神, 这 就 算 为 义。”   

注解:对于所有的基督徒,最重要的问题是:圣经说的是什么? 这不是什么神学家说,这也不是什么牧师说,也不是什么领导人说,等等。希腊文相信是 pisteu这意思是认为是真实的,信赖,相信耶稣或神认为是真实的,无论是在获得援助或得救恩; - 它发生在新约大约248次。 希腊文算为是 logizomai这意思是估计,计数,推诿,考虑,认为; - 它发生在新约大约41次。亚伯拉罕信神,神判定他为义。 因此,人是因信称义的(算为义,不算有罪),在相信基督耶稣为罪人死获得神的公义。 

罗马书1:2,“ 知, 的。

注解:希腊文圣是 hagios这意思是值得尊敬的,最神圣的东西,神圣的;-这发生在新约大约229次。圣经是神的话,应该视为神圣的。

罗马书9:17,“ 说, 来, 能, 使 下。”

注解:经上说,同样圣经说。圣经说什么就是神说什么。圣经高举神的能力。

罗马书10:11,“ 说: 人, 愧。”

注解:当我们不完全引用圣经的书和章节,我们可以说,经上说,或圣经说。 希腊文pas这意思是所有,不管是谁,每一个,任何大家; - 它发生新约大约1,243次。 神的恩典是每个人,每个人或任何人(不限制),不管是谁相信基督耶稣必不至羞愧。任何人,每个人都可以相信耶稣基督得救。无论何人来到耶稣这里,也不会被丢弃。 耶稣对世界保证, 约翰福音6:37,“ 人, 来。 的, 他。”

不管你是多么邪恶和罪恶的,如果你悔改,相信耶稣基督,他不会扔你出去,但要救您救到底。

加拉太书3:8 明, 义, 罕, 说:万 福。

注解:希腊文预先看明 proorao这意思是事先知道,看到前面; - 新约出现只有2次。先看明一切从开始到结束。没有什么能惊讶。神对亚伯拉罕宣扬福音。所有像亚伯拉罕相信的人,都要在神面前算为义。

加拉太书3:22,“但 圣 经 把 众 人 都 圈 在 罪 里, 使 所 应 许 的 福 因 信耶 稣 基 督, 归 给 那 信 的 人。

注解:在希腊文圈在是 sygkleiō这意思是关在一起,包围,双方就全部关闭,彻底闭嘴,包括: - 它发生新约只有4次。 罪恶就像一个大监狱,经上把所有的罪人关在监狱,因为所的人都犯了罪。

提摩太前书 5:18,“因 为 经 上 说, 牛 在 场 上 踹 谷 的 时 候, 不 可 笼 住它 的 嘴。 又 说, 工 人 得 工 价 是 应 当 的。

注解:资本主义的罪恶有很多,其中包括不公平的工资。华尔街的对冲基金经理用投资者的钱赌博,一年可赚数十亿。企业高管给自己巨大的补偿和福利和奖金。 医生和医院业主掠夺和欺诈行为吸吮病人的血液,吞了他们毕生的积蓄,让他们破产。垄断和有缺陷的法律制度使律师得到大费,袋鼠法庭对犯罪资本化。大多数政府和工会工作者和白人工人收入过高,而黑人的权行动给予优惠待遇,所有其他都得少工资,不公平的工资。还有百万的美国人只7.30美元到10美元一小时的最低工资。

提摩太后书3:16,“圣 经 都 是 神 所 默 示 的 (或 作 凡 神 所 默 示 的 圣 经),于 教 训, 督 责, 使 人 归 正, 教 导 人 学 义, 都 是 有 益 的。

注解:希腊文神所默示是 theopneustos这意思是灵感,神感动,它只有一次出现在新约。 圣经的内容是神所默示的。 即使是世界上最好和最伟大的书籍不能说是神启示的。希腊文有益是ōphelimos这意思是获得或产生效益;- 它发生在新约中只有4次。希腊文教训是 didaskalia这意思是系统化教学或指示,认为这是信仰灌输的一个信条或基本原则或戒律;- 它发生在新约大约21次。圣经的默示,基督预先存在,神在肉身显现,基督受难,复活,升天,称义,重生,成圣,基督第二次再来等等,都是基督教的基本教义。希腊文督责是elegchos这意思是定罪,证明外来的结果; - 它在新约仅发生两次。圣经是有效定人罪的工具或是圣灵的宝剑。 希腊文使人归正是 epanorthōsis这意思是矫正,恢复正常,整顿,改善生活或性格; - 它在新约只发生一次。在希腊文教导人学义是 paideia这意思是整个培训和子女教育,无论在培养成年人的灵魂,尤指纠正错误和遏制激情;指令旨在提高美德;警告; - 在新约中出现只有6次。

雅各书2:8,“ 说, 己。 的。

注解:至尊的律法是指圣经最重要的律法至尊的律法是爱人如己。如果你履行至尊的律法,你做得很好。 把仇恨,敌意,和报复的宗教,与基督教爱的律法比较,你应该能知道真理。帝国主义,殖民主义,霸权主义,资本主义,恐怖主义等等都是违背了圣经至尊律法

雅各书4:5 “你 们 想 经 上 所 说 是 徒 然 的 吗? 神 所 赐 住 在 我 们里 面 的 灵, 是 恋 爱 至 于 嫉 妒 吗 ?

注解:圣经所说的从来不是徒劳的。人说的可能是徒劳的,神说的有后果。 基督徒有神所赐的灵住在里面。

约翰福音8:24,“所 以 我 对 你 们 说: 你们 要 死 在 罪 中, 你 们 若 不 信 我 是 基 督, 必 要 死 在 罪 中。

如果你不相信耶稣是基督,你会死在罪中。 这不是我说,这是耶稣基督说的。 如果你不相信基督,你的生命有危险。不仅你会死在罪中,你将永远在地狱受苦。为什么不回头,并有荣耀的盼望? 耶稣基督不久又要再来了与圣徒永远统治作王。

11 神的话的严重性和神圣。

申命记 4:2,“所吩 咐 你 们 的 话, 你 们 不 可 加 添, 也 不 可 删 减, 好 叫 你 们 遵 守 我 所 吩 咐 的, 就 是 耶 和 华 你 们 神 的 命令。”

注解:加添在希伯来文是 yacaph 这意思是增加,更改数量和大小,更改的总体影响; - 它发生在旧约大约213次。 在希伯来文删减是 gara`这意思是削弱,减少, 限制,撤销,减轻,刮去; - 它发生在旧约大约21次。 几年前Reader’s Digest出版一简明圣经。 我相信他们违反了神的命令。

撒母耳记上3:1,“  华。 些 日 子, 耶 和 华 的 言 语 稀 少, 不 常 有 默 示 。”

注解:本经文给以利当耶和华的祭司时期的背景情况。主的言语稀少,也没有广泛的启示。希伯来语稀少是yaqar这意思是罕见,少见; - 它在旧约发生大约36次。希伯来文默示是 chazown这意思是一个神圣的启示,一个神的话,异象; - 它发生在旧约大约35次。 当神对以利不满,主的言语稀少,不常有默示。当神对教会不满,那个教会没有圣灵的能力,他们的牧师和传教士职业的,不召的。很多教堂好像庙堂。

撒母耳记上3:7,“ 那 时 撒 母耳 还 未 认 识 耶 和 华, 也 未 得 耶 和 华 的 默 示。”

注解:这里希伯来文默示是galah这意思是揭露,公开,发现,让人知道秘密,展示,显露出来; - 它发生在旧约大约188次。 小男孩撒母耳还未认识耶和华,也未得耶和华的默示。不认识神的人也不明白神的话语。 基督教是启示的宗教,你不可能自己的努力和智慧认识基督耶稣。因此,世界的聪明人变得愚蠢。

撒母耳记上15:23,“ 等。 同。 令, 王。”

注解:希伯来语悖逆 riy这意思是不服从,反抗,不服从命令,顽固地拒绝,不顺从; - 它发生在旧约大约23次。希伯来语术是 qecem 这意思是占卜,魔术;- 它发生在旧约只有11次。 在希伯来文顽梗 patsar 这意思是傲慢,顽固,放肆; - 它发生在旧约只有7次。 希伯来文'aven这意思是邪恶,烦恼,悲伤,空虚,虚荣; - 它发生在旧约大约78次。在希伯来文拜偶像是tĕraphiym这意思是一个照人形身材造的偶像应用于家用神社和崇拜; - 它发生在旧约大约15次。应当指出,叛逆的罪与行邪术的罪相等顽梗的罪与拜虚神和偶像的罪相同。 在新约中,贪婪就与拜偶像一样。 希伯来语厌弃ma'ac这意思是拒绝,鄙视,厌恶; - 它发生在旧约大约76次。 扫罗拒绝了主的话,主也拒绝他作以色列的国王。谁拒绝主的话语将被主拒绝。

列王记上13:26,“ 事, 说: 人, 子。 他, 他, 话。

注解:主的话是如何严重的:神人违背了耶和华的话,所以耶和华把他交给狮子,狮子抓伤他咬死他,根据主他说的话。事实上,亚当与夏娃犯下的第一个罪恶不是吃了禁果,他们违背了耶和华的话。不服从神的话语就是不顺服神。

列王记上17:16,24,   少, 短, 话。...   说: 人, 的。”

注解:很有趣的奇迹是坛内的面粉没有用完,瓶里的油也不缺短 耶和华借以利亚口所说的话是真的

列王记上22 是一个非常有趣的历史篇章,关于以色列邪恶的国王亚哈不想听神的 亚哈王将先知米该雅放在监狱里,并命令使他受苦,吃不饱喝不足 

列王记上22:28,“米 该 雅 说, 你 若 能 平 平 安 安 地 回 来, 那 就 是 耶和 华 没 有 借 我 说 这 话 了。 又 说: 众 民 哪, 你 们 都 要 听。” 

列王记上22:37-38,“ 了, 亚, 里。   (妓 澡),狗 血, 话。

邪恶的国王亚哈遭遇的事是根据的话。不仅亚哈死了,他死的方式是正如耶和 华所说的话。

列王记下9 记录了的话,亚哈王邪恶的妻子耶洗别是如何死的。

9:33-37,“ 说, 来。 来。 上。 了。  去, 了, 说: 了, 儿。  她, 脚, 掌。  户, 说: 话, 说: 间, 肉。  土, 别。

注解:希伯来语诅咒是 'arar这意思是奠定下了诅咒,成为了一个诅咒,憎恶; - 它发生在旧约大约63次。 主的话总是应验的。 耶洗别可能是最邪恶的女人 -滥用职权,贪婪,邪恶,无情,不公正,腐败和敌视 - 人类历史上最悲惨的结束,狗吃耶洗别的肉。

撒迦利亚12:1,“ 示。 天, 基, 造 人 里 面 之 灵 的 耶 和 华 说。”

注解:因耶和华的默示,先知撒迦利亚在公元前500年之前,就知道神铺张诸天(宇​​宙),一些科学家最近发现了扩大的宇宙。

马太福音4:4 说, 说, 着, 物, 话。

注解: 神的话语出于神的口,所以它是最严重和最神圣的。 人必须重视和遵守神的话语。人活着,不是单靠食物,乃是靠神口里所出的一切话。

犹大书1:11,“他 们 有 祸 了。 因 为 走 了 该 隐 的 道 路, 又 为 利 往巴 兰 的 错 谬 里 直 奔, 并 在 可 拉 的 背 叛 中 灭 亡 了。”

注解:该隐,巴兰和可拉,那些拒绝反抗神的话的人,作为历史的警示。 最近 (2011),台湾厂商被发现为利30 年,加毒食品和饮料产品。

约翰一书3:12 ,“ 隐。 者, 弟。 呢? 的, 的。

注解:西方帝国主义和霸权主义者,以及所有恐怖主义者是该隐的方式,走了该隐的道路。 强权政治是该隐的生活方式,走了该隐的道路。 华尔街贪婪为利往巴兰的错谬里直奔,为利他们欺骗和劫世界。资本主义的误差是为利往巴兰的错误直奔。繁荣福音传教士和追随者和那些把福音当商品的,为利往巴兰的错谬里直奔。希腊文背叛是 antilogia这意思是反对,否认,抗拒权威,矛盾; -它发生在新约4次。就是这样可拉和他的家庭和追随者在背叛中灭亡了: 

民数记16:30-33,“倘 若 耶 和 华 创 作 一 件 新 事, 使 地 开 口, 把 他 们和 一 切 属 他 们 的 都 吞 下 去, 叫 他 们 活 活 地 坠 落 阴 间, 你 们 就 明 白 这 些 人 是 藐 视 耶 和 华 了。 摩 西 刚 说 完 了 这 一 切 话, 他 们 脚 下 的 地 就 开 了 口, 把 他 们 和 他 们 的家 眷, 并 一 切 属 可 拉 的 人 丁, 财 物, 都 吞 下 去。 这 样, 他 们 和 一 切 属 他 们 的, 都 活 活 地 坠 落 阴 间。 地口 在 他 们 上 头 照 旧 合 闭, 他 们 就 从 会 中 灭 亡。”

注解:那些反对神和拒绝主耶稣基督的人,将被地狱吞下去永远灭亡。 

12  圣经是不可随私意解说的

彼得后书1:20-21, “ 的, 言, 的。  的, 来。

注解:圣经明确的说,神的圣者(先知和使徒)说出神的话并写了圣经。 圣经的预言,没有可随私意解说的 圣经是人被圣灵感动说出神的话来。 如果你想跟,这不是我的问题。 圣经不是一个私人解释的问题。 圣经解释本身。 作为一个例证,一个黑人教士传政治的福音根据他私人的解释。现在他的追随者承认他不是圣徒,乃是一个罪人,但他的事业是神圣的。 任何人宣扬虚假的福音不能有一个神圣的事业。 肯定性行动Affirmative Action是邪恶歪曲正义的。 没有任何种族集团可享有优惠的待遇。 当一个种族得优待,所有其他种族遭受不公正。 黑人优惠待遇跟白人至上一样坏。 之下人人平等,在法律面前人人一律平等。 政治福音,社会福音,女性福音,繁荣福音,可能性福音等等,全都是假福音,根据假先知,假师傅,假传教士随私意解说圣经。

彼得后书3:16  上, 事。 的, 解, 样, 沦。

注解:使徒彼得谈到使徒保罗的著作中,包含了一些难明白的东西。无知无学问和不坚固的人强解歪曲圣经,随私意解说,就自取沉沦许多不信的科学家和学者强解圣经,自取沉沦

马太福音7:15,“ 知。 来, 皮, 狼。

提防那些披着羊皮残暴的狼,他们假装是基督徒但他们不是,假装有圣经知识但他们没有,并假装是神的仆人,但它们实际上是撒旦的代理人,野蛮残暴的狼。22:18-19 证, 么, 上。  言, 么, 树, 城, 分。”

注解:神的话语强烈警告,并谴责那些添加和删除,随私意解说圣经的人。几年前,读者文摘 Reader’s Digest出版了简明的圣经。我相信他们也违反了这经文的诫命,从圣经删去了什么

13     耶稣的话决不能废去

马太福音24:35,“天 地 要 废 去, 我 的 话 却 不 能 废 去。

注解:希腊文废去是 parerchomai 一切灭亡,走过,路过,越过; - 它发生在新约大约31次。你拥有的一切,看到的,享受的,等等都会过去,并过后含义灭亡。 每个人和世界上的一切都会过去 - 人们珍惜金钱,权力和性欲都要过去。 您可能会烧圣经,但没有人能废去耶稣的话。天地要废去,因为将有一个新的天堂和新的地球,但耶稣的话决不会过去。基督徒不会杀死任何烧圣经的人,因为神的话语是真理,火不能燃烧。 诗篇119:89,“耶 和 华 阿, 你 的 话 安定 在 天, 直 到 永 远。”

注解:在希伯来文安定是 natsab 这意思是站立,直立,坚立,修复,建立; -它发生在旧约大约75次。 神所建立的,没有人能破坏。

以赛亚书40:8,“草 必 枯 干, 花 必 凋 残, 惟 有 我 们 神 的 话, 必 永 远立 定。

注解:在希伯文立定是 quwm这意思是站起来,站立,维护自己,忍耐,保存,继续; - 它发生在旧约大约628次。人会死,美女褪色,帝国灭亡,但是神的话语永远立定。

路加福音1:2,“是 照 传 道 的 人, 从 起 初 亲 眼 看 见, 又 传 给 我 们 的。

注解:希腊文亲眼看见是 autoptēs 这意思是自己的眼睛看到什么,这意思是个看到和听到的;- 它只在新约发生一次。 在希腊文传道的人是 hypēretēs这意思是一个仆人,任何一个服事或服务的人,一个助手,福音传教士; - 它在新约发生20次。 使徒们从一开始是亲眼看见一切的传道人。 福音和书信(从马太福音到启示录)是早期使徒写的,他们从起是跟过耶稣的徒,亲眼看见第一手见证的传道人。 因此,任何人都不可能后来声称得到新的启示。 神完整的启示是写在圣经上。

路加福音24:19 ,“耶 稣 说: 什 么 事 呢?他 们 说: 就 是 拿 撒 勒 人 耶 稣 的 事。 他 是 个 先 知, 在 神 和 众 百 姓 面 前,说 话 行 事 都 有 大 能 。

注解:拿撒勒的耶稣是一个先知,在神和众百姓面前,说话行事都有大能。有大能行事,因为耶稣行了无数的奇迹。 说话有大能,因为耶稣的话有大能。例如:风和海也听从耶稣。 恶魔服从耶稣的命令。 耶稣的话叫拉撒路从死里复活。你可以什么都不知道,但你不可不知道耶稣基督的事

约翰福音15:3,“现 在 你 们 因 我 讲 给 你 们 的 道, 已 经 干 净 了。

注解:希腊语中的清洁是 katharos 这意思是纯洁,净化像葡萄承担清洗装置通过修剪等; - 它发生在新约大约28次。耶稣的话语有权洁净我们,使我们适合事奉主。

以弗所书5:26,“要 用 水 借 着 道, 把 教 会 洗 净, 成 为 圣 洁,

注解:在希腊文圣洁是 hagiazō这意思是脱离世俗的东西奉献给神,洗净赎罪:脱离有罪的,灵魂洁净里面更新; - 它发生新约大约29次。 在希腊文洗净是 katharizō, 这意思是使清洁,无故障和污辱,洗净罪恶; - 它发生新约大约30次。主耶稣用水借着道,把教会洗净,成为圣洁。

路加福音9:26,“凡 把 我 和 我 的 道 当 作 可 耻 的, 人 子 在 自 己 的 荣耀 里, 并 天 父 与 圣 天 使 的 荣 耀 里, 降 临 的 时 候, 也 要 把 那 人 当 作 可 耻 的。

注解:耶稣的道大多是写在福音。 耶稣无论说什么都是如此。 我对那些自称基督徒的伪知识分子,并在同一时间宣布他们相信进化论的,没有一点尊重。 耶稣基督证实了,亚当和夏娃被神直接创造的行为。 耶稣基督证实了宇宙由神创造。没有大爆炸小爆炸废止耶稣的道。  

约翰福音6:68,“西 门 彼 得 回 答 说, 主 阿, 你 有 永 生 之 道, 我 们 还归 从 谁 呢?

注解:为什么有‘道’的单数和复数? 是否有什么不同? 这并不是说我不意识英语有关的单数和复数名词的语法。 我相信圣经说远远高于语言的元素。 单词或- 相关的教义一束 - 耶稣是否对一些具体的教学说的话,我们有责任倾听,相信和服从。 耶稣基督有永生之道,科学家甚至不知道他们死亡的日子。

约翰福音20:29 “耶 稣 对 他说, 你 因 看 见 了 我 才 信。 那 没 有 看 见 就 信 的, 有 福 了。

注解:有福的是那些没有看见耶稣而相信的人,因为他们得了永生之道。

使徒行传20:35,“ 我 凡 事 给你 们 作 榜 样, 叫 你 们 知 道, 应 当 这 样 劳 苦, 扶 助 软 弱 的 人, 又 当 记 念 主 耶 稣 的 话, 说: 施 比 受 更 为有 福。

歌罗西书3:16,“当 用 各 样 的 智 慧, 把 基 督 的 道 理, 丰 丰 富 富 的存 在 心 里, (或 作 当 把 基 督 的 道 理 丰 丰 富 富 的 存 在 心 里 以 各 样 的 智 慧) 用 诗 章, 颂 词, 灵 歌, 彼 此教 导, 互 相 劝 戒, 心 被 恩 感 歌 颂 神。

注解:有智慧的人,把基督的道理,丰丰富富的存在心里,不单放在恼里。信徒要彼此教导,互相劝戒。 

14 自己的的话启示自己。

撒母耳记上3:21,“耶 和 华 又 在 示 罗 显 现。 因 为 耶 和 华 将 自 己 的 话默 示 撒 母 耳, 撒 母 耳 就 把 这 话 传 遍 以 色 列 地。

注解:希伯来文默示是 galah这意思是揭露,公开,让人知道,显示,使裸露; -它在旧约发生大约188次。这是一个基督教的基本教义:没有人能通过自己的智慧或努力能发现神。 您不能发现神,除非神将自己给你默示了。 神将自己的话默示人。 小撒母耳还未认识耶和华,但神将自己的话默示撒母耳。 圣经就是神启示的话语。 神的话主要的功能就是启示主。

申命记29:29,“隐 秘 的 事 是 属 耶 和 华 我 们 神 的。 惟 有 明 显 的 事是 永 远 属 我 们 和 我 们 子 孙 的, 好 叫 我 们 遵 行 这 律 法 上 的 一 切 话。

注解:在世界有两种类型的事情:可知和不可知的。 不可知的事情是秘密,隐秘的事是属于耶和华我们的神。 神借着他的话对人类启示某些事情。 旧约和新约启示了属于主自己的秘密。 约翰福音1:17,“律 法 本 是 借 着 摩 西 传的, 恩 典 和 真 理, 都 是 由 耶 稣 基 督 来 的。这圣经简洁说明旧约和新旧之间的差异。 旧约是关于摩西的律法。 新约是关于基督耶稣的恩典和真理。 律法无法完成的,在基督耶稣的恩典完成了。律法和法律有何分别?律法是神定的,法律是人定的。人的法律是根据神的律法定的。

罗马书16:25,“惟 有 神 能 照 我 所 传 的 福 音, 和 所 讲 的 耶 稣 基 督,并 照 永 古 隐 藏 不 言 的 奥 秘, 坚 固 你 们 的 心。

注解:耶稣基督的福音是创造世界以来的一个奥密,神在耶稣基督里成为人才显现出来。 希腊文启示是apokalypsis这意思是揭露,使赤裸的,前未知的事物披露; -它发生在新约大约18次。 启示是一个之前未知神圣的事情,尤其是有关基督救恩的东西,借着圣灵的运作,在基督耶稣里因信得救。这个启示是由使徒和早期门徒被圣灵感动说出神的话来。

加拉太1:12,“因 为 我 不 是 从 人 领 受 的, 也 不 是 人 教 导 我 的,乃 是 从 耶 稣 基 督 启 示 来 的。

注解:原来的启示是不能人教导的,它必须由耶稣基督的启示或恩赐。 圣使徒写的新约圣经不是从人来的,也不是他们受人教导,乃是从耶稣基督启示来的。 耶稣基督的启示是在两千年前完成了,它是照新约圣经所写的,从马太福音到启示录。 没有人可以给它添加或减少。耶稣基督的启示已完成了。不可能有任何新的启示与圣经中写的相反。

启示录1:1, “耶 稣 基 督 的 启 示, 就 是 神 赐 给 他, 叫 他 将 必 要 快成 的 事 指 示 他 的 众 仆 人。 他 就 差 遣 使 者, 晓 谕 他 的 仆 人 约 翰。

注解:耶稣基督的启示主要集中在两个主题:救恩与预言。 救恩包括拯救灵魂 - 基督第一次来世的使命; 和身体的救赎 - 基督第二次来的使命。 预言包涵将来要发生的事。 在宇宙中最重要要发生的事件,是基督第二次再来,和末世的事情发生在最后的日子。

路加福音2:32,“是 照 亮 外 邦 人 的 光, 又 是 你 民 以 色 列 的 荣 耀。

注解:耶稣基督是照亮外邦人的光,又是以色列的荣耀。

以弗所书1:17“求 我 们 主 耶 稣 基 督 的 神, 荣 耀 的 父, 将 那 赐 人 智慧 和 启 示 的 灵, 赏 给 你 们, 使 你 们 真 知 道 他。

注解:你需要神的智慧和启示的灵才能真知道神。不信的科学家和学者不具备智慧和启示的灵,这就是为什么他们对属灵的事一无所知。

哥林多前书14:26,“ 们, 候, 歌, 训, 示, 言, 话。 人。”

注解:这个词‘启示’是同一个词使用在 罗马书16:25 重要的是要知道,一般的启示已经完成,因为它是写在新约经上,而圣灵仍然可以给任何人一个特殊的启示或阐明经文。 特殊的启示是不能违反一般的启示。 例如, 

路加福音2:26, 示, 前, 督。圣灵启示西面,他死之前,必看见主所立的基督。 这是一个特殊的启示,那没有以任何方式违背了即将到来弥赛的启示,或与弥赛亚本和他的工作有任何矛盾

马太福音11:27,“  的, 的。 父, 子。 的, 父。”

注解:本经文声明使用人类的智慧和努力,去获得神的知识是徒劳无功的。 神是宇宙最大的奥秘;创造宇宙的,是比宇宙更大。除了子没有人知道父,除了父也没有人知道子,只有子愿意指示的人。耶稣基督启示了神,认识耶稣基督就是认识神。

诗篇98:2,“ 恩, 义。”

注解:神已经把他在耶稣基督的救恩发明,神的义已经在列邦人眼前显出

以赛亚书40:5,“ 耀 现, 的, 见, 的。”

注解:当他来到世间以赛亚的预言在耶稣的身上应验了;耶和华的荣耀充分 现,当耶稣基督回来与圣徒永远永远作王。

罗马书1:17,“  义, 来。 信。 记, 生。”

注解:这是一项基本教义:主借着他的话语显明自己。没有神的启示,最聪明的人在黑暗中摸索。借着遵守摩西的律法无法获得神的义,因为没有人能够所有的时间全守所有的律法。神的义是本于信以致于信,因为那些信基督的被神算为义。 不是靠工作或功劳,乃是出于恩典,我们因信仰耶稣基督得救,因为耶稣为罪人死,律法得神的义,谁来到耶稣就得生命。

罗马书3:21,“ 来, 证。”

注解:律法和先知见证,神已经启示神的公义,在耶稣基督里,在律法以外给所有前来接受主耶稣作他们救主的人。

哥林多前书2:10 ,“ 了。 事, 了。”

注解:圣灵被差遣为耶稣基督作见证,表明耶稣基督是救主,叫一切信他的都得 永生。

以弗所书3:5 代, 道, 使 样。”

注解:得救的道路或耶稣基督的福音,在以前的世代没有人知道,但圣灵透露,启示圣使徒和先知,写下了圣经旧约和新约。

歌罗西书1:26,“ 秘, 了。”

注解:希腊文秘是 mystērion这意思是隐藏的东西,是一个隐藏的目的或旨意; -它发生新约大约27次。 神借着基督耶稣救赎人类的计划,是历世历代所隐藏的奥秘,但如今向他的圣徒显明了。耶稣基督是神的奥秘,是历世历代所隐藏的,但现在已经透露给他的圣徒。耶稣的圣徒就是追随他的人,不管是死的还是活的。 死的圣徒是那些基督里睡了的门徒。 活的圣徒是那些仍然生活世界的基督徒

彼得前书1:5,“ 人, 备, 恩。”

注解:在第一次降临,耶稣基督来拯救我们的灵魂。当基督第二次再来为圣徒身体的救赎,救恩将要最后一次的显现。圣体将被改造成属灵和光荣和不朽的身体。于是神有福的王国将有完善的能力和荣耀,直到永永远远。

15 有许多虚假的圣经教义。

邪门歪道的品种是无限的,只有一个笔直的路。有无限虚假的圣经教导,只有一个正确的理论作为圣经自称是神的话。所有虚假关于圣经的教导是私人的解释。 私人的解释圣经,是来自邪灵的感动和个人野心。 这些错误的教导包括:

A 圣经是人写的书。

彼得后书1:21,“因 为 预 言 从 来 没 有 出 于 人 意 的, 乃 是 人 被 圣 灵感 动 说 出 神 的 话 来 。”

第一圣经不是由人写的书。 圣经的作者不是普通的人或自己的想像,乃是圣人被圣灵感动说出神的话来。

问题:圣经怎么来的呢?

使徒行传1:16,“弟 兄 们, 圣 灵 借 大 卫 的 口, 在 圣 经 上, 预 言 领 人捉 拿 耶 稣 的 犹 大。 这 话 是 必 须 应 验 的。

注解:在希腊文预言是 prolegō,这意思是说之前,事先,先说事件,即前,预测; - 它在新约出现只有3次。 圣灵事先告诉大卫关于犹大的事。 圣灵借大卫的口说话因为大卫是个先知。 事实上,圣经是神古往今来,借着圣灵对圣先知和使徒所说一切的事,并让他们写下来,从摩西的创世记到约翰的启示录。

以弗所书3:5,“这 奥 秘 在 以 前 的 世 代, 没 有 叫 人 知 道, 像 如 今借 着 圣 灵 启 示 他 的 圣 使 徒 和 先 知 一 样。

注解:希腊文启示是 apokalyptō这意思是发现,摊开了掩饰或掩盖让人知道,要证明,公开之前是未知的; - 它发生在新约大约26次。 基督耶稣的福音在过去以前的世代不知道,现在被圣灵启示他的圣使徒和先知。出于这个原因,圣经不是由人写的书。

彼得后书3:2,“叫 你 们 记 念 圣 先 知 预 先 所 说 的 话, 和 主 救 主 的命 令, 就 是 使 徒 所 传 给 你 们 的 。

注解:在希腊文记念是 mimnēskomai这意思是要提醒一个人的自我,是铭记在; -它出现在新约只有2次。 希腊文命令是 entolē这意思是基督教整个集体的道德戒律,耶稣基督和他的使徒所教导的; - 它在新约发生71次。所有写在圣经上的文字,或言论和诫命被称为神的话语,基督徒必须遵守

B.圣经包含神的话。

圣经是神的话语。 圣经包含了一些什么魔鬼和天使和人说的话,但是神说他们说的。

约书亚记14:6,“那 时, 犹 大 人 来 到 吉 甲 见 约 书 亚, 有 基 尼 洗 族耶 孚 尼 的 儿 子 迦 勒 对 约 书 亚 说, 耶 和 华 在 加 低 斯 巴 尼 亚 指 着 我 与 你 对 神 人 摩 西 所 说 的 话: 你 都知 道 了。

注解:Pentateuch(摩西五经)是神的话,主对摩西说的话。

列王记上12:22,“但 神 的 话 临 到 神 人 示 玛 雅, 说:

注解:神的话临到先知,先知只能说神说什么。

列王记上13:21-22 “他 就 对 那 从 犹 大 来 的 神 人 说: 耶 和 华 如 此 说, 你既 违 背 耶 和 华 的 话, 不 遵 守 耶 和 华 你 神 的 命 令, 反 倒 回 来, 在耶 和 华 禁 止 你 吃 饭 喝 水 的 地 方 吃 了 喝 了, 因 此 你 的 尸 身 不 得 入 你 列 祖 的 坟 墓。“

注解:先知是神的代言人。 所有先知会向民宣布:耶和华如此说。

历代志上17:3,“当 夜, 神 的 话 临 到 拿 单, 说:”

注解:神的话临到先知不是一个先知可预到的。它发生时,神要它发生。

历代志下11:2,“ 说:”

路加福音4:3,“ 说, 子, 物。”

注解:这是真的,这是什么魔鬼对耶稣说:如果你是神的儿子,命令这块石头变成食物。 神的话语说,魔鬼这么说。

路加福音1:34-37 “马 利 亚 对天 使 说: 我 没 有 出 嫁, 怎 么 有 这 事 呢 ?天 使 回 答 说: 圣 灵 要 临 到 你 身 上, 至 高 者 的 能 力 要 荫 庇 你。 因 此 所 要 生 的 圣 者, 必 称 为神 的 儿 子。 ( 或 作 所 要 生 的 必 称 为 圣 称 为 神 的 儿 子 )况 且 你 的 亲 戚 以 利 沙 伯, 在 年 老 的 时 候, 也怀 了 男 胎。 就 是 那 素 来 称 为 不 生 育 的, 现 在 有 孕 六 个 月 了。 因为 出 于 神 的 话, 没 有 一 句 不 带 能 力 的。

注解:‘我不知道一个男人’意味着我没有和一个男人发生性关系。 加百列是神的天使,对玛利亚说到处女怀孕生子。玛利亚很困惑,因为处女怎么能一个孩子? 加百列是神的天使长,有权作解释玛利亚。加百列说神要他说的。

马太福音19:4,“耶 稣 回 答 说: 那 起初 造 人 的, 是 造 男 造 女,

注解:耶稣基督证实旧约写的为神的话。耶稣也证实了亚当和夏娃,是神的直接行为造成的,正如上所写的

马可福音12:26,“论 到 死 人 复 活, 你 们 没 有 念 过 摩 西 的 书, 荆 棘篇 上 所 载 的 吗? 神 对 摩 西 说: 我 是 亚 伯 拉 罕 的 神, 以 撒 的 神, 雅 各 的神 。

注解:耶稣基督明确重申旧约是神的话语。

马可福音12:10,“经 上 写 着 说 匠 人 所 弃 的 石 头, 已 作 了 房 角 的 头块 石 头。

注解:圣经的一节被称为经文。 耶稣基督验证在旧写的经文是旧约圣经。

路加福音1:19,“ 天 使 回 答说: 我 是 站 在 神 面 前 的 加 百 列, 奉 差 而 来, 对 你 说 话, 将 这 好 信 息 报给 你。

注解:天使是神的使者。先知是神的代言人。天使和先知只说神他们说的。

路加福音3:2,“亚 那 和 该 亚 法 作 大 祭 司, 那 时, 撒 迦 利 亚 的 儿子 约 翰 在 旷 野 里, 神 的 话 临 到 他。

注解:施洗约翰是神派来,为神的儿子预备道路 神的话在旷野里临到约翰。 神的话没临到宫殿,权力,财富和荣耀的座位。你知道有任何一种权力,财富和荣耀的座位接受神的话?

约翰福音10:35,“ 经 上 的 话是 不 能 废 的。 若 那 些 承 受 神 道 的 人, 尚 且 称 为 神,

注解:神的话不是随便临到什么人。 耶稣基督验证和确认,神的话在过去临到神圣的人(先知)。经上的话就是神的话,神的话是不能废的。

路加福音24:27,“于 是 从 摩 西 和 众 先 知 起, 凡 经 上 所 指 着 自 己 的话, 都 给 他 们 讲 解 明 白 了。

注解:希腊文讲解是 diermēneuō,这意思是要开展的解释是说什么意思,解释; - 它发生在新约只有6次。 所有的经文指着旧约, 因为新约圣经在基督复活时还没有写成。摩西和所有先知中心的信息是弥赛亚,神的儿子来到这个世界为罪人死。

使徒行传13:44 ,“到 下 安 息 日, 合 城 的 人, 几 乎 都 来 聚 集, 要 听 神的 道。

注解:安息日是犹太人的休息日,最适合来聚集,要听神的话。 后来基督徒庆祝耶稣基督的复活,在礼拜日聚集要听,耶稣基督的福音就是神的话语,唱赞美和敬拜神。

使徒行传28:23,“他 们 和 保 罗 约 定 了 日 子, 就 有 许 多 人 到 他 的 寓处 来, 保 罗 从 早 到 晚, 对 他 们 讲 论 这 事, 证 明 神 国 的 道, 引 摩 西 的 律 法 和 先 知 的 书, 以 耶 稣 的 事,劝 勉 他 们。

注解:保罗是一个伟大的使徒,从耶稣基督得到直接的启示。 保罗也是一个伟大的传教士,他讲论解释,并郑重证明神国的道,无论从摩西的律法和先知关于耶稣的事说服他们。 现在传福音是更容易,因为整个新约解释神国的道。 在希腊文讲论是ektithēmi,意思是比喻规定,声明,阐述,明确理解; - 它在新约中出现只有4次。 希腊文证明是diamartyromai这意思是以确认证事情,因为它是可相信的;- 它发生在新约大约15次。 所有使徒的教训归结于他们自己看到或听到的事情,或神给他们的启示。希腊文劝勉是 peithō,这意思是通过诱导相信,鼓舞信心,使相信,使具有坚强的信心;- 它发生在新约大约55次。 使徒能做的事情,不是现今布道家和传教士能做的。使徒们有权力,第一手经验,看见过了主,能行神迹。

当圣经说,魔鬼说,魔鬼就这么说。 当圣经说天使说,天使就这么说。 当圣经说某个人说了些什么,那个人的确说了这一点。 无论圣经这么说是因为神是这么说的。

C. 圣经是寓言,幻想,传说,神话,神话,寓言和故事。

圣经不是历史书,但它是历史上正确的。当圣经说到一个人像大卫,和地方像伯利恒, 大卫是一个真正的历史人物,伯利恒即使在今天是一个真实的地方。 圣经不是科学的教科书,但它是科学正确的。

马太福音22:42-45, “论 到 基 督, 你 们 的 意 见 如 何? 他 是 谁 的 子 孙 呢?他 们 回 答 说: 是 大 卫 的 子 孙。 耶 稣 说, 这 样, 大 卫 被 圣 灵 感 动,怎 么 还 称 他 为 主; 说:  主 对 我 主 说, 你 坐 在 我 的 右 边, 等我 把 你 仇 敌, 放 在 你 的 脚 下。 大 卫 既 称 他 为 主, 他 怎 么 又 是 大卫 的 子 孙 呢?

圣经不是科学的教科书,但它是科学正确的。当神多于2000年前对耶利米揭示,关于扩大的宇宙,这在科学上是正确的。

诚然,圣经包含比喻,寓言和故事。 当圣经说,这是一个比喻,它应该是从字面上理解为一个比喻。

以西结书17:2,“人 子 阿, 你 要 向 以 色 列 家 出 谜 语, 设 比 喻,

注:在希伯来文谜语是 chiydah 这意思是棘手的问题,或者说神秘莫测的问题,令人费解的话,黑暗晦涩的话语,黑暗的讲话,硬的问题; - 它在旧约发生大约17次。 希伯来语比喻是mashal这意思是谚语,格言,相似,象征; - 它发生在旧约大约39次。 当圣经说,这是一个谜,它就是一个谜。 当圣经说,这是一个比喻,它就是一个比喻。 然而,圣经不全是谜语和比喻。

士师记 14:12-14 “参 孙 对 他们 说, 我 给 你 们 出 一 个 谜 语, 你 们 在 七 日 筵 宴 之 内, 若 能 猜 出 意 思 告 诉 我, 我 就 给 你 们 三 十 件 里衣, 三 十 套 衣 裳。 你 们 若 不 能 猜 出 意 思 告 诉 我, 你 们 就 给 我 三十 件 里 衣, 三 十 套 衣 裳。 他 们 说, 请 将 谜 语 说 给 我 们 听。 参 孙 对 他 们 说, 吃 的 从 吃 者 出 来。 甜 的 从强 者 出 来。 他 们 三 日 不 能 猜 出 谜 语 的 意 思。

注解:参孙的谜语很有趣。是的,圣经包含谜语,但圣经不是谜语制成。

马太福音13:36,“当 下 耶 稣 离 开 众 人, 进 了 房 子。 他 的 门 徒 进 前来 说: 请 把 田 间 稗 子 的 比 喻, 讲 给 我 们 听。

注解:耶稣讲说许多比喻,他们都写在福音书上。 在希腊文比喻是 parabolē, 这意思是一个比较另一件事,肖像,相似,例如,其中一个含义学说或戒律是说明了天上,一个人间的故事; - 它发生在新约约50次。 比喻的解释是普通的真理,不是比喻: 马太福音13:37-42,“他回 答 说: 那 撒 好 种 的, 就 是 人 子。田 地, 就 是 世 界。 好 种, 就 是 天 国 之 子。稗 子, 就 是 那 恶 者 之 子。 撒 稗 子 的 仇 敌, 就 是 魔 鬼。 收 割 的 时 候,就 是 世 界 的 末 了。 收 割 的 人, 就 是 天 使。 将 稗 子 薅 出 来, 用 火 焚烧。 世 界 的 末 了, 也 要 如 此。 人 子 要 差 遣 使 者, 把 一 切 叫 人 跌 倒的, 和 作 恶 的, 从 他 国 里 挑 出 来, 丢 在 火 炉 里。 在 那 里 必 要 哀 哭切 齿 了。” 这是清醒的真理。世界上有两种种子:好种和稗子。世界上有两种人:天国之子,和那恶者之子。

加拉太书4:24,“ 这 都 是 比 方。 那 两 个 妇 人, 就 是 两 约。 一 约 是 出 于 西 乃山, 生 子 为 奴, 乃 是 夏 甲。

注解:希腊文比方是 allēgoreō,这意思是发寓言或做比方; - 它在新约只发生一次。

箴言1:6,“使 人 明 白 箴 言 和 譬 喻, 懂 得 智 慧 人 的 言 词 和 谜语。”

注解:希伯来文譬喻是 liytsah 这意思是一个讽刺,嘲笑诗,讽刺歌,奚落,需要解释的; - 它发生旧约只有2次。

约翰福音10:6,“耶 稣 将 这 比 喻 告 诉 他 们。 但 他 们 不 明 白 所 说 的是 什 么 意 思。

注解:在希腊文比喻是 paroimia这意思是任何黑暗的说法,其中提出了一些教学真理的影子,一个符号或象征性说,言论或话语在某事物的比喻,说明了详细的使用比喻和比较,扩展; - 它发生在新约只有5次。 

约翰福音16:29,“门 徒 说, 如 今 你 是 明 说, 并 不 用 比 喻 了。

以赛亚书30:10,“ 说, 事, 说, 话, 话, 事。

注解:希伯来语虚幻 mahathallah这意思是欺骗,诡诈;- 它在旧约只发生一次。

路加福音24:11,“她 们 这 些 话, 使 徒 以 为 是 胡 言, 就 不 相 信。

注解:在希腊语胡言是 lēros这意思是空话,空闲的故事,废话; - 它在新约只发生一次。 起初,没有看到主复活的门徒,不相信那些曾见过主的妇女;他们的话似乎是胡言。

提摩太前书1:4, 也 不 可 听 从荒 渺 无 凭 的 话 语, 和 无 穷 的 家 谱。 这 等 事 只 生 辩 论, 并 不 发 明 神 在 信 上 所 立 的 章 程。

注解:希腊语荒渺无凭的话语是mythos这意思是一个小说,神话,发明,虚假,传说; - 它发生在新约只有5次。 神的话语熏陶并信心上建立你。

提摩太前书4:7,“只 是 要 弃 绝 那 世 俗 的 言 语, 和 老 妇 荒 渺 的 话,在 敬 虔 上 操 练 自 己。

注解:在希腊文敬虔是 eusebeia这意思是对神的虔诚; - 它发生在新约大约15次。 希腊文操练是 gymnazō,这意思是努力认真像体操,锻炼,大力培养那些在校的; - 它在新约中出现只有4次。 虔诚是必须努力,大力培养和实践基督徒的美德。基督徒最大的操练是敬虔。

提摩太后书4:4,“并 且 掩 耳 不 听 真 道, 偏 向 荒 渺 的 言 语。

注解:圣经是真理,反对荒渺的言语。 所以圣经是不可能荒渺的言语制成。

提多书 1:14,“不 听 犹 太 人 荒 渺 的 言 语, 和 离 弃 真 道 之 人 的 诫 命。”

注解:犹太人荒渺的言语,被法利赛人和文士宣扬。

当耶稣说,我就是羊的门,它是一种比喻。 耶稣不是用木头或钢铁制成的大门。 但是,耶稣是在这个意义上的门,你不借着耶稣无法进入羊圈。

约翰福音14:6,“ 耶 稣 说, 我 就 是 道 路, 真 理, 生 命。 若 不 借 着 我 。 没 有人 能 到 父 那 里 去。

注解:声明属灵含义是真实的:耶稣是到神的路,除非借着他没有人能到父那里去。 耶稣是神的途径就是这个道理。 那些相信在基督的真理,具有永恒的生命。

帖撒罗尼迦后书2:11,“故 此, 神 就 给 他 们 一 个 生 发 错 误 的 心, 叫 他 们信 从 虚 谎。

注解:在希腊文错误是planē这意思是偏离真理,对于道德或宗教有错误的意见,欺骗或欺诈; - 它发生在新约10次左右。许多白人至上主义者相信,在妄想美国是特殊的,神所选择统治世界。这是白人至上主义者最大错误的心,叫他 们信从虚谎。神没有选择美国,神选择以色列。

耶利米哀歌2:14,“你 的 先 知 为 你 见 虚 假 和 愚 昧 的 异 象, 并 没 有 显露 你 的 罪 孽, 使 你 被 掳 的 归 回。 却 为 你 见 虚 假 的 默 示 和 使 你 被 赶 出 本 境 的 缘 故。”

诗篇4:2,“你 们 这 上 流 人 哪, 你 们 将 我 的 尊 荣 变 为 羞 辱,要 到 几 时 呢 你 们 喜 爱 虚 妄, 寻 找 虚 假, 要 到 几 时 呢? (细 拉)”

耶利米书14:14,“ 耶 和 华 对我 说, 那 些 先 知 托 我 的 名 说 假 预 言, 我 并 没 有 打 发 他 们, 没 有 吩 咐 他 们, 也 没 有 对 他 们 说 话。 他 们向 你 们 预 言 的, 乃 是 虚 假 的 异 象 和 占 卜, 并 虚 无 的 事, 以 及 本 心 的 诡 诈。”

注解:在希伯来文诡诈是 tormah这意思是背叛,欺诈,欺骗,迷惑; - 它发生在旧约只有6次。 心中的幻想是最具有破坏性的。‘白人的负担'是一场历史的大骗局。 进化论是一个心灵的迷惑。 权力是一种心灵的妄想。 财富是​​心灵的幻想。 乐趣是一个心灵的妄想。 因为神就是爱,因此没有地狱 - 一个心灵的大错觉,乃是虚假的异象和占卜。

16。圣经解释自己
彼得后书1:20  的, 言,

注解:在希腊文解epilysis这意思是松动,解释,暴露; - 它只在新约发生一次。圣经清楚,神的先知和使​​言,并写了圣经。圣经是不可随私意解说的。如果你想跟神辩论,这不是我的问题。圣经不是私人解释的。圣经解释自己
问题:圣经如何解释圣经?
以下是一些方法圣经解释本身的例子:  

A. 圣经的定义
圣经提供了许多至关重要理解神话语的定义。如果你不知道某一个圣经主题的定义,这意味着你可以知道这个词,却仍然没有明白圣经说些什么。在这里只有个主题被引用和解释,以帮助形成关于神,罪,基督,地狱的圣经神学。圣经的定义是的定义,而不是神学家,学者或科学家的定义。


1)。神
约翰福音4:24   的, 他。
注解:希腊文灵是pneuma,这意思是生命的灵,神的本质;- 它发生在新约大约385次。耶稣进一步解释,路加福音24:39  手, 脚, 了。 看。 肉, 的。灵没有肉和骨头,这是明确的。如此,圣经解释灵是什么意思, 是个灵。这是主要的意思,也有第二的含义。的确,神是灵。圣经也说,希伯来书12:29 火。 是烈火,但火不是神。相信火神是泛神论。那些祭祀火神的不认识真正的神。圣经也说,约翰一书4:8 没 有 爱 心 的, 就 不 认 识 神。 因 为 神 就 是 爱。是爱,但爱不是神。那些崇拜爱女神的是异教徒,而不是基督徒。因此,如果你收集所有有关说到神的经文放在一个地方,整理出来,并有系统的研究,并提出在一个有凝聚力的方式形成了圣经神学。这就是圣经解释圣经。你不能挑出一节或一段经文其它经文自相矛盾。神的话团结统一提出了神对人类的核心信息,并拒绝接受任何私人的解释。

2)。罪恶
约翰一书3:4 的, 法。 罪。
注解:罪是违背律法,这是一个侵犯的定义。罪的判断是根据摩西的律法 - 给了摩西的律法。这是罪恶的基本定义。没有律法,你不知道什么是罪。律法说,

出埃及记20:17,“ 屋, 子, 婢, 驴, 的。

注解:律法的用意说明什么不可的,什么是应当的。

罗马书7:7 样, 呢? 吗? 是。 法, 罪。 说, 心。 心。然而,这并不是说所有的经文或有关罪的定义。
罗马书14:23 的, 罪。 吃, 心。 罪。不是出于信心的都是罪,这带来了广阔什么是罪的前景。 如果你是靠感觉活着,就必有罪。此外,

雅各书4:17人 若 知 道 行 善, 却 不 去 行, 这 就 是 他 的 罪 了。这是忽略的罪,大多数的罪只限于过犯。你有钱,你可以行善却不去行就是你的罪。你有权力,纠正错误,但你不这样做,这就是你的罪。你是一个政客,你知道你的同事违反法律,贪污,你什么都不说,什么也不做,这就是你的罪。你是一个医生,你知道医疗体系诈骗及滥收病人的费用,你什么都不说,什么也不做,这就是你的罪。你是一个华尔街长官,你知道金融体系诈骗及抢劫世界,但你什么都不说,什么也不做,这就是你的罪。约翰一书5:17凡 不 义 的 事 都 是 罪。 也 有 不 至 于 死 的 罪。例如,给有钱有势的人减税是不义的,是不义的罪。从一般到特殊,歌罗西书3:5所 以 要 治 死 你 们 在 地 上 的 肢 体。 就 如 淫乱, 污 秽, 邪 情, 恶 欲, 和 贪 婪, 贪 婪 就 与 拜 偶 像 一 样。这经文定义贪婪为崇拜偶像的罪。在美国,很少人崇拜偶像;但大多数美国人崇拜金钱(对金钱的爱),这就是贪婪。华尔街是贪婪的明确示范;资本主义是由贪婪制成的,以欺诈行为和各种的邪恶感染整个世界。
罗马书6:23因 为 罪 的 工 价 乃 是 死。 惟 有 神 的 恩 赐, 在 我 们 的主 基 督 耶 稣 里 乃 是 永 生。
注解:事实上,我们都将死去,因为我们都犯了罪。如果你没有犯过罪,你不会死的。自亚当,没有人没有犯过罪。罪的工价乃是死,但的恩赐,在我们主基督耶稣里乃是永生。


3)。基督
马太福音16:16西 说, 督, 子。
注解:在希腊文基督是Christos这意思是受膏者,弥赛亚是神的儿子; - 它在新约发生大约569倍。 基督弥赛亚是永生神的儿子。它只是指耶稣,耶稣为基督(弥赛亚),耶稣基督正确的名字。
马太福音23:10 呼。 尊, 督。
注解:在希腊文师尊kathēgētēs这意思是指导,老师,拥有最高领导人的权威和权力; - 它在新约中只发生3次。没有一个人像主耶稣基督。许多异端邪说的出生,是因为某些傲慢自骄的人想做大师,成了神学学校的思想,用自己私人的意见诠释神的话。
马可福音1:1神 的 儿 子, 耶 稣 基 督 福 音 的 起 头
注解:耶稣基督是福音的开始,没有耶稣基督就没有福音。
路加福音2:11因 今 天 在 大 卫 的 城 里, 为 你 们 生 了 救 主,就 是 主 基 督。
注解:在希腊文救主是
sōtēr这意思是拯救者,保护者,救世主,神通过他给救恩; - 它在新约发生大约24。在希腊文主是kyrios这意思是宇宙的统治者,这个称号只属于:神,弥赛亚; - 它发生在新约大约748次。耶稣基督是救主,正如神是主。
路加福音24:46 说, 的, 害, 活。
注解:犹太人和门徒有关于弥赛亚错误的观念。他们认为基督必须继续存在,不知道神的羔羊基督为罪人受苦,并死在十字架上,为了拯救他们是必要的。如果只有死就没有救恩,基督从死里复活是为叫我们称义
约翰福音1:17  西 的, 理, 的。
注解:人既然不能守律法获得神的义,所以神预备救恩所有前来基督救的人。神的义是白白赐给信基督的人,这是真理。
约翰福音1:41 西 门, 说: 了,( 来, )。
约翰福音4:42 稣。 说: 西 门, 法。 (矶 来, 得)
注解:耶稣的确是弥赛亚,救世主。
约翰福音6:69 了, 者。
注意:在世俗的东西你知道相信。在神圣的东西,你相信知道。
约翰福音17:3认 识 你 独 一 的 真 神, 并 且 认 识 你 所 差 来 的 耶 稣 基督, 这 就 是 永 生。

注解: 认识独一的真神,并且认识神所差来的耶稣基督,这就是永生。
使徒行传2:36 此, 道, 稣, 了。

注解:耶稣是神所立为主为基督的。

使徒行传2:38彼 得 说, 你 们 各 人 要 悔 改, 奉 耶 稣 基 督 的 名 受 洗,叫 你 们 的 罪 得 赦, 就 必 领 受 所 赐 的 圣 灵。
注解:在希腊文得赦aphesis,这意思是宽恕,罪的赦免(让他们去,好像他们从来没有犯过罪; - 它发生在新约17次。
罗马书1:16 我不 以 福 音 为 耻。 这 福 音 本 是 神 的 大 能, 要 救 一 切 相 信 的, 先 是 犹 太 人, 后 是 希 利 尼 人。
注解:基督的福音是大能,要救一切相信的,无论犹太人或外邦人。
罗马书2:16 就在 神 借 耶 稣 基 督 审 判 人 隐 秘 事 的 日 子, 照
言。
注解:有一天,会借耶稣基督审判人隐秘事,当他回来与圣徒作王。
罗马书3:22 义, 督, 人, 别。
注解:通过律法是不可能获得神的义。因信耶稣基督,神就白白加给一切相信的人神的义,并没有分别。
罗马书10:4 督, 使 义。
注解:在希腊文结是telos,这意思是终止,这其中一件事情是完成的,最终涉及到所有的东西; - 它是发生在新约大约42次。这是基督教一个重要的真理:基督是律法的结。大致神有两种治度(dispensation):律法(旧约)和 恩典(新约)。法律治度却已经结束,基督的恩典治度当耶稣基督来到世间开始,持续到基督返回作王。现在是恩典的治度。人不能通过律法获得神的义, 出于恩典神给予所有信耶稣基督的人。 基督为义为一切相信他是主和救主的人完成律法。
哥林多前书1:24 人, 人, 力, 慧。
注解:基督是力,神的智慧。
哥林多前书10:4,“也 都 喝 了 一 样 的 灵 水。 所 喝 的 是 出 于 随 着 他 们 的灵 磐 石。 那 磐 石 就 是 基 督。

当耶稣基督说,马太福音16:18,  你, 得, 上, 柄, 他。
注解:你看圣经解释圣经。彼得不是石,那磐石就是基督。圣经本身并不矛盾。
哥林多前书12:27 子,并 体。
注解:圣经提供了教会的定义:基督徒集体是基督的身,并且徒各自作肢体。身体是一个,肢体有多个。教会是基督的身肢体离开身体是死的,离开主也是死的。
哥林多前书15:3-4我 当 日 所 领 受 又 传 给 你 们 的, 第 一, 就 是 基 督 照圣 经 所 说, 为 我 们 的 罪 死 了。 而 且 埋 葬 了。 又 照 圣 经 所 说, 第 三天 复 活 了。
注解:引用的经文基督教的基本教义。根据圣经基督为我们的罪死,他被埋葬,第三天复活
约翰一书1:7   行, 中, 交, 罪。基督教是在圣经的基础上,神的话语。基督为罪人死,从死里复活是为叫我们称义。耶稣的代死和复活,是基督教神圣真理的左支柱。如果没有耶稣基督为罪人死,罪人就不能得救。如果没有耶稣基督的复活,罪人是没有道理在神面前是算为义人。耶稣基督的死亡与复活完成了救赎我们的灵魂;第二基督再来将完成救赎我们的身体的,从会死的变到不死的,从不光彩变到光荣。只有基督教有空墓,我们的救赎主活着直到永远。许多宗教领袖死甚至不能自救。最近,一个有数百万人信奉印度教的大师逝世,享年84。死亡是所有人的命运。因为罪的工价乃是死。

 
4)。地狱
地狱是不是一种精神的状态,它是一种痛苦受苦真实的地方。
申命记32:22 起, 间, 把 地 和 地 的 出 产 尽 都 焚 烧, 山的 根 基 也 烧 着 了。
注解:中国人的18层地狱概念是纯粹想象的,但圣经确实说到最低的地狱。显然,谁发送到最低地狱的人是最邪恶的,将受害最深。最低的地狱是无底洞。显然,旧约的地狱(sh
ĕ'owl),在耶稣基督从死里复活升上最高的天后,已被转移到 20:14 描述的地狱(hadēs)。我们不应该猜测圣经没有说明的。
诗篇9:1
​​7恶 人, 就 是 忘 记 神 的 外 邦 人, 都 必 归 到 阴 间。
注解:所有的国家,就是忘记神的外邦人,都必归到地狱,包括
那些自称为基督教国家,但做法邪恶的。
诗篇55:15  们。 间。 处, 中, 恶。
箴言5:5  脚, 地。 步, 间。”
箴言7:27 路, 宫。
注解:她指的是妓女和坏女人。卖淫的家是在地狱的道路。地狱死亡之宫。
箴言27:20 亡, 足。 目, 此。
注解:阴间和灭亡永不满足,所以成为受害者。
以西结书31:16我 将 它 扔 到 阴 间, 与 下 坑 的 人 一 同 下 去。 那 时, 列国 听 见 它 坠 落 的 响 声 就 都 震 动, 并 且 伊 甸 的 一 切 树 就 是 利 巴 嫩 得 水 滋 润, 最 佳 最 美 的 树 都 在 受 了 安 慰。

马太福音5:22只 是 我 告 诉 你 们, 凡 向 弟 兄 动 怒 的, 难 免 受 审 判。(有 古 卷 在 凡 字 下 添 无 缘 无 故 地 五 字) 凡 骂 弟 兄 是 拉 加 的, 难 免 公 会 的 审 断。 凡 骂 弟 兄 是 魔 利 的,难 免 地 狱 的 火。

马太福音5:29若 是 你 的 右 眼 叫 你 跌 倒, 就 剜 出 来 丢 掉。 宁 可 失去 百 体 中 的 一 体, 不 叫 全 身 丢 在 地 狱 里。
马太福音5:30若 是 右 手 叫 你 跌 倒, 就 砍 下 来 丢 掉。 宁可 失 去 百 体 中 的 一 体, 不 叫 全 身 下 入 地 狱。
马太福音10:28那 杀 身 体 不 能 杀 灵 魂 的, 不 要 怕 他 们。惟 有 能 把 身 体 和 灵 魂 都 灭 在 地 狱 里 的, 正 要 怕 他。
注解:如何在地狱的痛苦是永远的?本经文回答问题是,因为他们身体和灵魂都受痛苦。恶人复活后的身体可以感受到火烧伤,虫叮咬,不断的死亡但死不了。恶人和不信主的人的身体和灵魂,都要受没有结束
永远的痛苦。
马太福音23:15你 们 这 假 冒 为 善 的 文 士 和 法 利 赛 人 有 祸 了。 因 为你 们 走 遍 洋 海 陆 地, 勾 引 一 个 人 入 教。 既 入 了 教, 却 使 他 作 地 狱 之 子, 比 你 们 还 加 倍。
注解:有不好和假的传教士,勾引信徒作他们的门徒。请记住,一个真正的牧师传教士,使信徒作耶稣基督的门徒。耶稣基督称恶人和不信主的人为地狱之子。真理会得罪人。你非常严重的错,如果你认为神的真理必须使你高兴。你研究圣经不是找是否圣经使你高兴。你学习神的话语,看看你是否使神高兴。有使许多地狱之子在人间
制造地狱,有一天地狱之子将在地狱里受折磨,直到永远。一个贪婪的资本主义者抢劫和掠夺世界,是一个地狱之子。一个战争贩子开侵略的战争是地狱子。医生和医院老板诈骗,把病人当作猎物是地狱之子。一个律师行法律的恐怖主义,他是地狱子。恐怖份子是一个地狱...

路加福音12:5我 要 指 示 你 们 当 怕 的 是 谁。 当 怕 那 杀 了 以 后, 又有 权 柄 丢 在 地 狱 里 的。 我 实 在 告 诉 你 们, 正 要 怕 他。

注解:假先知和假牧师说,是爱,你不必怕他。耶稣说,你怕神,神是当怕的。为什么?因为当怕那杀了们以后,又有权柄丢在地狱里的。我实在告诉你们,正要怕他。

注意:进化论一个神话。神创造了所有生物,各从其类,有自己的物种 species)。没有一个物种进化到另一个物种。关在里头是关闭大门的意思。现在,救恩的门打开,现在你可以得救。有一天到来时,救恩的门就要关闭,你就不能进入。
创世纪19:10-11 只 是 那 二 人 伸 出 手 来, 将 罗 得 拉 进 屋 去, 把 门 关上, 并 且 使 门 外 的 人, 无 论 老 少, 眼 都 昏 迷。 他 们 摸 来 摸 去, 总寻 不 着 房 门。”

雅各书5:9 们, 怨, 判。 哪, 了。”

启示录3:20 哪, 门。 的, 去, 他, 席。”
注解:耶稣基督在敲你的心门,打开你的心接耶稣基督,为你的主和救主。最精彩的车库门只能带你到一辆车。白宫门不能带你到天堂。国会门不能带你到天堂。宫殿门不会带你到乐园。耶稣是门,带你到神和天堂。
