It is so wonderful to be alive today! To witness the eternal word of God come to pass as it was spoken in Bible prophecy thousands of years ago. The Bible which again is the word of God states in the gospel of Mathew 24:44 that ‘Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of Man comes’ People have come out claiming that God has given them a word concerning the exact date when the Lord Jesus would return to this world but all their claims haven’t stood to fulfillment. What’s the point, believing all that any way? The Bible is the eternal word of God that was passed on to us to help us live the way our creator ‘God’ (the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit) intended for us to live – In His likeness and Image.
Paul under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, tells us in 2 Timothy 3:16 that ‘All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine (teaching), for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. He continues in verse 17 to declare; ‘that the man of God (you and me) may be perfect, thoroughly furnished to all good works’. Paul is saying that God’s Word will make us complete, mature, and sufficient for every good work. This is a powerful statement, if we ever want to take care of our future, our present and also not to regret about out our past, we need to focus on what the Bible says to us in every situation …..……………………………….
Many people teach that God’s Word isn’t enough to complete our growth. They say we have to suffer, and be tried to attain maturity. That’s not what this verse is saying. God’s Word is capable of making us perfect in every area.
Is that to say that we learn and are perfected ONLY through God’s Word? Certainly not! Most of us do learn by hard knocks. God’s Word is able to complete us in every area without those heartaches if we would let it do its work. We can either learn through God’s Word or we can learn by our mistakes. The choice is ours. The better choice is to learn through God’s Word………………………………………… ‘the Bible’.
Even concerning the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, if we have to look at anything to place our faith on, it should be the Bible –the God breathed word to inspire us and to keep us going. Paul gives us some advice in 2 Timothy 3:14 ‘But continue you in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you learned them’. Keep your faith in the word of God, the designer of all history and the architect of our future – the Alpha and the Omega. The true God alone foreknows and foretells the future. He has chosen to confine His foretelling to the pages of scripture (the Bible).
I know now that desperate atheists and other unbelievers seeking a way to circumvent the fact of fulfilled prophecy and its connotations, have argued about the fulfillments already saying they are coincidental, accidental or chance – But to them, all I can say is; they may realize the truth at a time when it will be too late and they may not be able to escape the wrath of God. One truth about the word of God is that; whatever you may think about it doesn’t change a single bit of what it is or what it says.
The reason Jesus was never defeated, never retracted a single statement, never confessed a sin or made a mistake , never asked advice from humanity is because He always had the right answer – the will and the word of God. The people that know the Word are not necessarily those that can quote hundreds or thousands of scriptures without looking anywhere but rather its those on whose hearts the word is written – those who have made the ways of God their way of life,
