WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

You owe it to yourself and your family to be sure of what it is you believe, the Apostle Paul has told us to "work out our own salvation with fear and trembling"  Philippians 2:12

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

The Bible Is Our ONLY Guide

The Holy BibleThe Bible provides us with plain Scriptural Teaching for the True Followers of Christ

The statements on this guide represent what we believe is true Bible teaching. The statements are deliberately challenging, asking every reader to compare his own opinions with the plain teaching of Scripture, examining carefully the Bible passages offered as proof. If, as a result, a change of mind and heart is called for, there will be no doubt that the teaching of the Lord, and the book he trusted, must be followed and not what the churches teach.

 

All Scripture quotations are taken from the New King James (also known as the Revised Authorized) Version of the Bible.

God's Plan for You

God's Plan for this World and You

 

THE view of planet earth, seen from outer space, is very beautiful indeed. Confirmation of this has come from the astronauts who have gazed upon it. The earth is the fairest jewel in God's creation and it is the chosen place in the whole universe where He has promised to reveal His Kingdom in all its glory. That is why it is so beautiful.

 

The earth, of all the planets in the solar system, is the one that is perfectly suited to all forms of life and the one that orbits at exactly the right distance from the sun to provide comfortable conditions for the human race.

PRAYER IN THE LIFE OF THE BELIEVER

What is Prayer?

Prayer is communication with God?

One writer writes: "In the simplest terms prayer is the lifting of heart and mind and will to God."Prayer in the life of a BELIEVER

Faith must be the basis of all acceptable Prayer - See Hebrews 11:6

Prayer in action = "faith and works" - See Nehemiah 4:8-9; Psalm 127:1

How do we Pray?

The lesson of 'incense' is useful for this:

Incense was a skilful blend of special ingredients.  It is described as "a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary" (Exod 30:35).  As choice had to be made of its ingredients and care and skill had to be exercised in compounding of it, so careful preparation should be given to prayer.  It should not be entered into lightly.  A careless, casual approach to God is dishonouring to Him. 

The Lord's Prayer a good pattern, but not essential to follow see Matthew 6:9-13

Our Prayer will depend on circumstances eg:

Jonah as he was thrown over into the sea - See Jonah 2:1-2

Daniel and the fiery furnace or lions den - Daniel 3:21, 6:16

Christ at crucifixion - See Luke 23:34

Hannah "lips moved but no voice" - 1Samuel 1:13

Hannah all embracing - See 1Samuel 2:1-10

Typical flow of Prayer:

Open with Praising God

Extol His Purpose & Mercy

Entreaty (ie. what we are praying for)

Thankfulness

Close with Praise

When do we Pray?

Any time - "pray without ceasing…" - 1Thessalonians 5:17, 1Timothy 2:8

But a set time is important for example under the law of Israel Incense was offered morning and evening (Exodus 30:7-8)

We need to establish prayer when "God may be found…” - See Psalm 32:5-6

Meditation is an important accompaniment to Prayer - "Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God."  Job 37:14

How do we know God hears our Prayer?

We have His promise' - See 2Chronicles 7:14; Psalm 145:18&19; Matthew 7:7-8

For contrast - See Deuteronomy 1:45; Jeremiah 15:1; Hosea 5:5-6;

Psalm 66:18 "If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened."

John 9:31 "Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth."

See 2Corinthians 12:8-9 re: suffering

What role does Jesus play?

For those Baptised into Christ (ie. those who have entered into a covenant relationship with Christ through the waters of Baptism see Romans Ch 6), he becomes our advocate or mediator at the right hand of God.

1Timothy 2:5  "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus."

Greek 'mesites' sig  a) one who intervenes between two, either in order to make or restore peace and friendship, or form a compact, or for ratifying a covenant  b) a medium of communication, arbitrator

This is a great privilege we have in Christ

See Hebrews 10:19-21 & 4:16

See Romans 8

How does God respond to our Prayer?

See Habakkuk 1:2; Psalm 88:1

Examples of effective prayer are found in:

Abram going into battle - Genesis 14:13 & Note: vs22-23

Abram and Ishmael  - Genesis 17:18-21  Note: Even though Abram had received great promises from God, he didn't stop praying for their fulfillment Cp. Genesis 18:14 "is anything too hard for Yahweh…?"

Abraham's eldest servant seeking wife for Isaac - Genesis 24:12-15 & 45

David at Gath - 1Samuel 21:10-15 Cf. Psalm 34:4

Paul "thorn in the flesh" - 2Corinthians 12:7:10

What should we Pray for?

To Praise

To Thank

To seek help

"Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms."  James 5:13

Essentially for anything and everything, but it must be coupled with "according to His will"  (note James 4:3)

Luke 18:1; Phillippians 4:6;; John 16:22, 15:16

Matthew 21:22 "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."

See Matthew 6:7 re: structure of our prayer

See example of Hezekiah regarding the need to prepare for effective prayer 2 Kings 19:1-2, 15-19

Good examples of Prayer in daily life are found in the following:

Daniel: An example of frequent, sincere and earnest prayer - Daniel 6:10, note also 9:21 & 10:10-12

David: for deliverance from enemies, for forgiveness, thanks and praise for all Yahweh's mercy - Psalm 34 & 51

Christ: for strength and endurance - "And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God"  Luke 6:12

See Christ’s prayer in John 17

Paul’s prayer for others - "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,  4Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, 5For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; 6Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:" Phillippians 1:3-6

Robert Roberts summary of Prayer…

"Some things asked for we have received, and some we have not.  But we should not feel discouraged if God were apparently to turn a deaf ear to all our requests.  We should consider that His wisdom required the denial of all our desires, as in the case of Job (6:8-11; 13:24-26; 19:7-11).  David had to say sometimes: 'O my God, I cry in the day time, but Thou hearest not, and in the night season I am not silent' (Psa 22:2).  Man is small and life is short, and the issues of futurity are immeasurable and can only be truly judged by unerring wisdom.  For this reason, all our petitions should e qualified with the recognition of the will of God as the supreme regulator.  We should in everything give thanks, and in all our petitions subordinate our own ideas and wishes to the perfect will of God.

Christ has given us an example in his own prayer to the Father in Gethsemane: "Take away this cup from me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what thou wilt!"  This qualification makes us certain of an answer to all our prayers, even if we do not get the answer in the very form we may ask it.  This is John's reasoning on the point:  "This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us.  And if we know that He hear us whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him."  That is, true children of God would desire nothing that God sees not fit to give.  What He sees fit, that He gives; and this being what we ask, we know that we always have what we ask: and here we rest, even in the midst of the more direful experiences, knowing that experience of evil is part of the instrumentality by which God is preparing children for Himself during this transitory age of evil, against the perfect and endless ages beyond."

ARE YOU SAVED?  IF SO HOW ARE YOU SAVED?

 
 

 

Is YOUR knowledge of the BIBLE 

and YOUR belief and worship of GOD 

able to SAVE YOU?

 

Not sure? Well consider this passage from JOHN CHAPTER 17

"1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do."

The Greek word for "know" is 'genosko' and it means to have a thorough intellectual understanding of what something is all about.

Do you have this understanding of God and His Son

Jesus Christ?

The need for this full understanding of the TRUTH is further underlined by Christ's words in John 17:17Only a TRUE understanding of the Word of God can Save YOU

We are sanctified in our understanding of God's word of Truth ie. set apart as special unto God and Christ, without this we cannot be saved.  Just as Israel were not saved when they strayed from their TRUE knowledge of God.

God's special people the nation of Israel were destroyed for lack of knowledge as we read in Hosea 4:1 Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

In Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee.

In Hosea 6:6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
 

The Apostle Paul has warned us that some would not be in the Faith (ie. the true knowledge of God and Christ)...

1 Timothly 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
And again by the Apostle Peter...

2 Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And in 2 Thessalonians where the Apostle Paul tells us that some would fall away from "the Truth" he says that this would be becaused they had lost their love of the Truth and had chosen rather to believe a lie.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

"10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."

And so the Apostle Paul counselled us all to Work out OUR OWN SALVATION...

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
