The Bible…Is It Truth? (Video)

Posted on

 

Do we believe the bible to be true just because it says it is, (2 Timothy 3:16-17)? Or is there more to it than that…

This video explains how history proves the facts and accuracy of the original biblical manuscripts dating back centuries. It shares prophetic statements made in certain books of the bible, which man could not have known unless inspired by a Supreme Being. The facts presented here give logical reasoning to the bible as absolute truth.

It is only about ten minutes long, and is well worth watching. Take the time to investigate this information and let us build our faith by what it shows us!

Dried up to the bone

is he who won’t pray to Me.

There’s no nourishment.

Open your hearts, child.

Let your feelings flow to Me.

I give life and love!

PROVERBS 20:

~Who can say “I have kept my heart pure; I am clean and without sin?”

~Differing weights and differing measures–the Lord detests them both.

~Food gained by fraud tastes sweet to a man, but he ends up with a mouth full of gravel.

~A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man who talks too much.

~Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and He will deliver you.

~A man’s steps are directed by the Lord. How can he understand his own way?

~It is a trap for a man to dedicate something rashly and only later to consider his vows.

~The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old.

 

PROVERBS 21

~To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

~A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.

~The violence of the wicked will drag them away, for they refuse to do what is right.

~Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

~If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.

~A man who strays from the path of understanding comes to rest in the company of the dead.

~He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity, and honor.

~There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord.

How To Have Life Eternal…

Romans 8:1-4 (NIV)

Life Through the Spirit

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[b] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[c]And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”

What a wonderful God we serve! And, the love of His Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, is truly amazing. This is the gospel message of the Lord Jesus above.

Man had, (has), a sin problem. This fleshly “tent” in which we live is weak. Therefore we are incapable of keeping the law of God perfectly. There are too many human desires and temptations, even for those who are in Christ Jesus. We slip into sin; we fall to the wiles of the evil one who will never leave us alone until he is locked away in hell by the Lord Himself!

God knew this from the beginning of time. He had the plan of man’s reconciliation unto Him laid out in full. Jesus Christ came to this earth and dwelt among men. He took our sins upon Him and carried every one of them to the cross. The Perfect for the imperfect, He took our beating and our death upon Himself willingly and died in order to save us.

Three days later, the Mighty God raised Him from the tomb of death and shortly brought Him back into heaven to sit at His right hand…a victor over both physical and spiritual death.

Therefore there is no condemnation for those who live in Christ Jesus. He set us free from the law of sin and death, and made us alive through the law of the Spirit of life, as it says in (V 1-2)!

The gift of God’s grace through our faith in Jesus has saved us…

For what the law was powerless to do, (V 3-4), in that it was weakened by our sinful nature, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man. This was so that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.

Yes, this is pretty straight-forward, elementary Christian teaching. For all who rightly call themselves Christians, we know and believe this.

However, at times, I see a few people from other types of websites who will visit me, as I’m sure you do as well. I think it a good thing to have this basic message of the gospel of Christ posted.

We just never know what “doors” the Lord may open to an opportunity to share the word with someone! May He bless all of His children in our efforts to win souls for the Lord…
