“For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
“And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” (Heb 4:12-13)
It is amazing how a quality decision about God’s Word can absolutely revolutionize a person’s life. What many people do not realize is that the ‘Word of God’ is a Person. And it is through the sacred Scriptures that we come to know Jesus Christ, the living Word of God.
The one thing Satan must do to disrupt a Christian’s life is to cast doubt on God’s Word. This is ‘bottom-line’ spiritual warfare. Satan begins by putting a twist on God’s Word. His goal is to undermine the truth of God.
Satan does this by twisting and turning, by adding to and by taking away, by distorting and by making crooked the straight ways of the Lord.
This is why it is so important to understand the place that the Bible has in our lives.
The Bible is a living book. It is the only book on this planet that can prove it is from God. It is the only book that records history before it happens. It is the only book that sets forth thousands of prophecies and allows man to see those prophecies fulfilled. It names nations that will rise and fall. It proves its origin in the millions of lives that are radically changed.
What I mean by the Bible being a living book, is that you will literally find God speaking to you from the pages of the Bible. According to the apostle Paul, it is through the Scriptures that we touch the glory of God.
This is why I am making a push for believers, or anyone else for that purpose, to take a fresh look at the Bible. With this in mind I wanted to share some information about Bible translations.
Hope this has been an encouragement to you.
While you think on these things, take time for this song and this message. The song is titled, ‘By His Word.’ You will hear the message in English and in also in the Tamil. (The messenger is Tharmapandian P)
In Christ always,
