The Word of God Part IV

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”  Hebrews 13:8  
It has been said many times, “The Bible is not relevant for today as it is only a history book dealing with the Jews in ancient times.”   However, the Bible is as real today as when it was written.  Many prophesies have been fulfilled but many have to be fulfilled thus making it a book of the past, present, and future.  It is a most interesting book.  I challenge you to read it through.  There are stories of heroism, battle, romance, and interesting historical accounts.  There are also practical suggestions as to how one should live and conduct a business, treat his fellow man, as well as what to expect in the future.  This is not a book of the past, but a book that lives on and on.  

There is comfort when reading the Psalms, advice when reading Proverbs, good practical teaching when reading the gospels, and most of all, it shows us the way to eternal life through Jesus Christ.  If you want to know the future, look at the prophesies as it is written, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:20-21  You may say you don’t understand everything in the Bible.  Welcome to the club.  I don’t think the greatest Bible scholar ever understood everything written.  That’s what is so wonderful about the Word of God.  You can read it over and over again and it comes to life, bringing a deeper message each time.  This book is alive and will continue to live!  Read it daily.
