The Word of God Part VII

“Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” 1 Corinthians 10:11  

There are many incidents and events recorded in the Bible.  These are historical accounts that are written for our admonition and to illustrate how man reacts in various situations as well as God’s attitude toward man’s behavior.  When we read of stories such as Saul’s conferring with a witch, David’s sin with Bathsheba, Samson’s laying with a harlot, and other accounts such as these, we must realize that these are only recorded to show the consequences of sin and the actions are not always condoned by God.  Read the Bible as fact and take the whole word of God as truth so you can fully understand why an event is recorded.  That’s why Paul told Timothy that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16  Read the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelations in order.  You can do it in a year by only reading three or four chapters a day.  There are treasures in that book that you will find that can be found no where else.  “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. Matthew 13:45-46
