Why should we read the Bible?


Dear prof. Akira Kanda

In response to your question:

a. There is a whole subject of hermeneutics in order one can decipher the biblical message properly. There is a good and reliable book such as Matthew Henry concise commentary

b. there are biblical parts which have direct meaning, and there are passages which are not. You need genre analysis for poem/apocalyptic books like Job, Psalm, and Revelation.

c. Even with the help of such commentary books, at times reading bible is difficult, but then we can ask in prayer to Holy Spirit to guide us. Because He was the ultimate inspirator of the bible.

I know you have a position that the bible was human result, but back then we already agree that it was inspired by Holy Spirit. All catholics also admit the bible as Dei Verbum...

So, if you really want to be a good ChrIstian like in early church time, you should better spend sometime to dig its message, and pray to God so He will grant you the blessing to listen and comprehend to His voice.

Only then, I wish, you can start to do what is God's will in your life... Perhaps you are the only math person who stands in the right way to redeem logic and foundations of math. Perhaps you only need a paper to do so, not a whole book which is time consuming.

I do not mean to judge you, because your eternal life is up to you.

I just comment to you, that is it illogical if you want to say that you are fervent christian but you deny God's guidance to you in the form of Holy Spirit and reading His book.

Btw, I wrote this out of my own experience. Years ago I also omitted reading bible, but later on ai began to put more respect to what Holy Spirit said to the prophets etc. And I pray for you so you can understand the bible according to His will, just pray and ask for His guidance.

But it is really up to you.

Humbly yours,

Victor, my question is simple. If one reads the bible and your
interpretation of the bible and still can not understand the message of
God, it is this person's fault or your fault? You do not need to degrade
yourself by being rude and judgemental. Just give me some answer. We are
here to discuss.

10 changes Jesus will bring

By Tim McHyde
my FREE article on the exciting Millennium changes...Big Changes When Jesus Returns - Including Pets Gone Vegetarian Since my last email to you, my world has frankly been turned upside down. Our autistic firstborn Zachary, 23, had to be taken to the ER due to not breathing well after some vomiting and fever. Rather than it being a mere flu, he had pneumonia and sepsis. This has landed him in the ICU where he is on a breathing tube and IV antibiotics. He literally almost died and the doctors are still not happy with his labs a week later (very low thrombocytes). I would appreciate your prayers for him. You can read the details, updates and answers to FAQs on this post for him. Thank you.

In extreme trials like this, I find it essential to deal with all lies and other negative thoughts (fear, worry, guilt, etc.) by rebuking them with positive truth from Scripture and reminding yourself of God's past good to you. As well, I find it comforting to remember that …

Pembangunan Bait Suci ke-3

*Pembangunan Bait Suci ke-3. Antikristus dan Rapture di depan mata kita!*
Salah satu topik yang paling hangat dibicarakan berkaitan dengan Akhir Zaman ialah pembangunan Bait Suci ke-3 di Yerusalem.  Pembangunan Bait Suci ini merupakan salah satu nubuatan yang akan segera digenapi.  Namun, terdapat banyak kendala yang menghambat pembangunannya, sebut saja Lokasi persis bangunan Bait Suci ke-3, apakah tabut perjanjian sudah ditemukan, dan bagaimana perkakas-perkakas Bait itu.  Bagaimana sebenarnya  kisah dan kelanjutannya, berikut adalah penjelasannya.
Pada 7 Juni 1967, selang beberapa hari setelah Israel mengambilalih kekuasaan atas Yerusalem, Moshe Dayan selaku Menteri Pertahanan Israel kala itu datang untuk pertama kalinya berdoa di Tembok Barat dari Bukit Bait Suci, dan ia menyatakan: "Kami telah mengembalikan tempat Maha Kudus kami dan kami tidak akan pernah meninggalkannya kembali". Shlomo Gorn, Rabbi kepala dari tentara Israel kemudian meniup "shofar" sebagai sy…

What God promised to tell me to do as the Elijah for the End of Times.

*And now He fulfill His promise, because this is the end of Times.

Note: Believe it or not, this article was written very carefully under guidance of Holy Spirit, because I do not know the meaning and unprepared to become a prophet of God. But thanks God, He is full of mercy.

Beginning
God call me in Oct. 2009 as His prophet in order to prepare so many people in His body of churches and nations for the End of Times. Before that, God asked me three times: "Do you love Me? Then shepherd My lambs." And I replied, "Yes, God. You know that I love You." At the time, I remembered that classic conversation between Jesus and Peter in John chapter 21. I tried to see how the relation of Jesus's question to Peter and God's question to me, but it is mystery.
Initially, I was so enthusiastic with this unexpected job from God to become His prophet, and at the time, a part of me said that it is a very …
