Inspired Scripture
 

2 Timothy 3:16 KJV

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God..."

The Bible we have today was written over 1000 years, using 40 different authors, in three languages and is arranged in 66 books.  It is inspired by God.  God inspired these men to write what they did because the internal evidence is overwhelming that the inspiration came from God.  Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16 KJV "16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." Recognizing that God used these men to record his revealed plan and finishing his work when the Apostle Paul was told to reveal the Mystery, the sacred secret of God, is astounding.  In Colossians 1:25-27 KJV Paul says "25 Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; 26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:"  With the revelation of the Mystery, God's word is complete.  God also provided a way to properly interpret the scriptures with the internal laws found inside.  Study these materials to learn about the inspiration and how to study so you may receive the proper interpretion of scripture.

The full inspiration of the Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16) that they were written by holy men of God who were moved by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21).

God-breathed

2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God". The word "inspiration" is the Greek word theopneustos, which may literally be translated "God-breathed". So we see immediately that God Himself "breathed" the Scriptures. This means that the Bible is God's words and thoughts to us. The various books that make up the Bible were written via God's chosen instruments who were moved, or literally "carried", by God's Spirit (2 Peter 1:21). The Bible does not consist of thoughts which are human in origin, even though its teaching is expressed in the language of humans for our understanding.{C}

Miles Coverdale

Miles Coverdale, who gave us our first complete English translation of the Bible, had in the fly-leaf of his Bible the following words concerning the laws of interpretation: "It shall greatly helpe ye to understande Scripture, if thou mark not only what is spoken, or wrytten, but of whom, and to whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstance, considering what goeth before, and what followeth". ...Miles Coverdale

Bible Complete when The Mystery revealed"THE MYSTERY"- God's Sacred Secret To Complete the Word of God (Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:25,26)  vs.25 "...I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you to fulfil the word of God; vs. 26..The mystery which hath been hidden from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints:" (Col. 1:25- 26).  Translators in the main have selected the English word, "fulfill" or its equivalent, rather than the English word, "complete" (vs. 25). According to "Webster's New World Dictionary," (1968), the English word, "fulfill," means to carry out something promised, desired, expected, predicted, etc. To say the least, The Mystery was never promised, expected, etc. Consequently, to use the English, "fulfill," is like the blind leading the blind. It is said, "translators follow translators," a form of brainwashing. A case in point: The Douay Version of the Holy Bible, (which is an English translation of the Vulgate used by Roman Catholics) uses the word, "fulfill" (1578). The King James' Version, a Protestant version (1611), also uses "fulfill" -- you be the judge!{C}

The lesson on December 1, 2013 was part 8 of the "Ephesians" study.  A review of chapter one was given where we learned about looking for pentecostal gifts is wrong because of the change in God's revealed plan due to the revelation of his hidden purpose.  In this age, PAul talks about the one gift of the spirit of wisdom and revelation that may be given (verse 1:17). We learn how the King James uses italicized font to correctly reflect the case being communicated.  When we get to the main lesson we learn of the amazing position God has placed us in Him and how the prince of the power of the air that is currently working against us. The scripture reading was in Ephesians 2:1-7 KJV

Ephesians - Part 8
September 12th, 2010

The lesson on September 12, 2010 was reviewing the fire storm that a pastor started when his congregation decided to burn the Quran (Koran) on September 11th, commemorating the 9th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center in New York.  This attack was pulled off by radical muslams who promote Islam over Christianity to the point of killing Christians and Americans. The scripture reading was in 2 Timothy 3:14-17 KJV "15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."  One example of the American sentiment after 9-11 is a worrysome rant, which is a supposed email that is cirulating from an American Airlines pilot who wrote a letter entitled "You Worry Me".  This letter was determined to be a fake, but exemplifies the feelings in America that would encourage the event down in Florida.

Old Testament Study - Part 12. The study of history can be dry at times especially when you go back 6000 years to Adam. But this history is important for our learning and spiritual growth. All scripture is for our learning in that we find doctrine, reproof, corrections, and instructions in righteousness in the history found in scripture. This lesson comes to the old testament prophets (major and minor). First, there is a recap from what has transpired up to this point, from Abraham to the exile of Israel which is at the end of the Kings from 500-490 BC.

All Truth - Part 1. In Colossians 4:12 (KJV), the Apostle Paul tells us “Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.” The idea of perfection here is not being perfect but being like a ripe piece of fruit. However, why does Epaphras pray that another saint to be complete? This prayer demonstrates that there is a difference between salvation and calling.

Time does fly, but only as you look back on it. 2006 has been like most years, both bitter and sweet. We have buried some loved ones, including my Mother. We have seen good friends stumble and fall back into the prison system. We see truth continue to be sacrificed for profit, power and prestige. We keep reading about the masses leaving the ministry, churches going hip-hop trying to stave off their failure.

Recently I listened to a 23 year old junior high school teacher speak of how drastic things had changed since she was in junior high…which was only 10 years ago! The changes of which this young teacher spoke were not good. She considered the students’ attitude much worse than 10 years ago. The same was said about the parents’ and school administration’s attitude. It doesn’t take a Greek scholar or seminary graduate to see that 2 Timothy 3:13 is taking place:

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."

“Change,” which most of the people desired and voted for, is really speeding up. In fact, it has been gaining momentum even before the 21st century began. The “change” in morals and bibles is running amok. Currently we are being introduced to the latest “new bible,” called the Princess Diana Bible. It is written for gays, stating that God joined two women in marriage and eliminating those verses where God stated very plainly that homosexuality is sin. This is the first, but it won’t be the last bible catering to the filth of the flesh.

What a change one word can make in studying God’s word. I recently heard a message that reversed God’s truth because of one word. The basis of the sermon was John 15:1-8. This is Christ’s dissertation on our abiding in Him and bearing fruit. He speaks of “fruit” and “more fruit” in v. 2 and “much fruit” in vs. 5, 8.

"The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." Psalms 12:6-7

In my lifetime, I have seen America's leadership begin to "…hate the good, and love the evil…" (Micah 3:2.) This hate of good and love of evil seems to parallel with the changing of one Bible translation right after another. Like the Athenians on Mars' hill, today's religious (not necessarily Christian) crowd seem to spend "their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing." (Acts 17:21) {C}
