THE BIBLE:

GOD'S WORD -

COMMUNICATING

WITH HUMANITY

 

As we seek to know God, probably the most important question which we can ask is "How can we know God?".

 

The Bible is often called 'the word of God' in order to

make clear that God is its ultimate author and that it comes with his authority.

 

This is not to say that God wrote the words himself - his method was to use the authors he had developed under his own care over the course of their life-time. And through them, he speaks to us all, today.

 

The Bible is also called God's 'Living Word'. As we read and study and absorb the Bible, and as we pray to God, we begin to hear God responding to our questions and to our needs directly, through the Bible.

 

The authority of the Bible is a critical question, deserving our deepest consideration. The question of how God rules over us is at stake. We believe that the Bible is the unique and sufficient word of God, through which God  expresses his Lordship over the church and the individual Christian, and which must be the test and measure of everything else in our Christian life. That is the basis on

which we know the truth about God.  

 

As we have written this website, it has been our specific intention that it should contain as few of our own words as possible.

 

Godís word is our only completely reliable source for knowledge about God.

_________________

 

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through

the prophets at many times and in various ways,

but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,

whom he appointed heir of all things, and

through whom he made the universe.

The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the

exact representation of his being, sustaining all things

by his powerful word.

After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down

at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Hebrews 1:1-3 (NIV)

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than

any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing

soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the

thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)

Jesus said to the two disciples (on the road to Emmaus, after His resurrection):

"How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to

believe all that the prophets have spoken!

Did not the Christ have to suffer these things

and then enter his glory?"

Luke 24:25-26 (NIV)

 

Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law,

'I have said you are gods'? If he called them 'gods,'

to whom the word of God came -

and the Scripture cannot be broken

John 10:34-35 (NIV)

 

Much in every way! First of all, they have been

entrusted with the very words of God.

Romans 3:2 (NIV)  

Above all, you must understand that

no prophecy of Scripture came about

by the prophet's own interpretation.

For prophecy never had its origin

in the will of man, but men spoke from God

as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:20-21 (NIV)

David himself, speaking by the Holy Spirit, declared:

"'The Lord said to my Lord:

"Sit at my right hand

until I put your enemies under your feet." '

Mark 12:36 (NIV)

You spoke by the Holy Spirit

through the mouth of your servant, our father David:

"'Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?

Acts 4:25 (NIV)

Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of

the grace that was to come to you, searched intently

and with the greatest care, trying to find out the time

and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ

in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings

of Christ and the glories that would follow.

1 Peter 1:10-11 (NIV)

 

Ö. how from infancy you have known

the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise

for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching,

rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so

that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped 

for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:15-17 (NIV)

 

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle

and set apart for the gospel of God -

the gospel he promised beforehand

through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures

regarding his Son, who as to his human nature

was a descendant of David, Ö.

Romans 1:1-3 (NIV)

 

For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man,

but men spoke from God as they were

carried along by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:21 (NIV)

 

The LORD said to him, "Who gave man his mouth?

Who makes him deaf or mute?

Who gives him sight or makes him blind?

Is it not I, the LORD?

Exodus 4:11 (NIV)

Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have

written both of them as reminders to stimulate

you to wholesome thinking. I want you to recall the

words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the

command given by our Lord and Saviour

through your apostles.

2 Peter 3:1-2 (NIV)

If anybody thinks he is a prophet or spiritually gifted,

let him acknowledge that what I am writing to you

is the Lord's command.

1 Corinthians 14:37 (NIV)

If anyone does not obey our instruction in this

letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with

him, in order that he may feel ashamed. Yet do not

regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.

2 Thessalonians 3:14-15 (NIV)

Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.

John 17:17 (NIV)

"I have much to say in judgment of you.

But he who sent me is reliable, and

what I have heard from him I tell the world."

John 8:26 (NIV)

Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!

John 8:45 (NIV)

To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said,

"If you hold to my teaching, you are really my

disciples. Then you will know the truth,

and the truth will set you free."

John 8:31-32 (NIV)


How can I have this everlasting life?
