WHY IS BIBLE TRUTH SO IMPORTANT?

Bible Truth

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE TRUTH

Is Bible Truth important to your Faith and Salvation ie. will you be saved despite what you believe the bible teaches or does it matter what you believe?

Well the word “truth” appears 237 times in the bible, that alone says it must be important!

Therefore it must be important to understand what “truth” is.

A quick scan of the passages using this word “truth” leave us in no doubt that it is not only important, but vital to our salvation.

John 17:3

3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

1 John 5:20

20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true,even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

1 Timothy 2:3-4

3For thisis good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

 

Clearly then knowing what is Bible Truth is important and vital, in addition to this we are also warned that some would depart from the “truth”…

1 Timothy 4:1

1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry,and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

1 John 4:6

6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

From these passages it is very clear that we need to know the “truth” about God and His Son as it is taught to us in the Bible.  This means we must learn what this is from the Bible itself.

 

Don't let your HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL rest with someone else eg. your pastor or minister, YOU owe it to yourself and your family to be fully convinced of what it is you believe to be sure it HOLDS something REAL for you.

We have all been warned by God that there would be many false teachers and Jesus himself has told us that "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."  See Matthew 7:14

 

Sadly when Christ returns to this earth, many will only then realise that they have believed in lies Jeremiah 16:19

"19 O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit."

Don't let this be you or your family!

 

BIBLE TRUTH and true faith must be founded on a fully inspired Bible.

Paul said 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)

The OFFER of LIFE or DEATH

God's Offer of LIFE or DEATH

“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.   See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him… This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life…"  Deuteronomy Chapter 30:12-20

 

From this passage we see how important it is to each one of us that we seek after God and His Word the Bible to us.

 

Without this we have no hope of LIFE, but only a future of DEATH.

 

This Word of God was originally given to the Nation of Israel and later it spread via the Apostles of Christ to the World, that even we today might have this same HOPE of LIFE ETERNAL.

 

It is UP to YOU then to seek out God’s Word, to KNOW what is the TRUTH of God’s Word so that you and your family might KNOW the way of LIFE ETERNAL and the great HOPE of living in God’s Kingdom on EARTH.

 

Do not let your HOPE rest upon others and most importantly on what others teach, search it out for yourself because we have been warned that the churches would be astray from God’s word in the last days.

 

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”   2 Timothy 4:3-4

 

Too much is at stake for you to not act yourself to seek out the TRUTH.

 

Christ himself has told us to do this when he said…

 

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Godis a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

True Bible Teaching - Gods Word Explained

The Son of God

The Son of God

The Son of God died a cruel and painful death on the cross - Why was this?

God revealed or manifested Himself through angels who spoke for Him and revealed to us that He wants a family of believers who will be like Him (ie. will show in their life God’s character of goodness, truth, mercy and love) and through whom the world will ultimately be filled with His glory (God’ Character).  In this article we will explain how God has made that possible by causing His Son, the Lord Jesus, to be born to the virgin Mary, to live and die as he did that we all might have this GREAT HOPE of a better life to come.

Son of God?

In the promises made to Abraham concerning the land, it was dramatically shown to him that the seed through whom the promise would be fulfilled would be the Son of God.

Isaac was a child of promise. It is foolish for the Jew to scoff at the idea of God having a Son, when the Jewish race owes its existence to the operation of Divine power, apart from which there would have been no Isaac and no Jacob and thus no twelve tribes of Israel.

The dramatic parable was continued when Isaac was offered by Abraham at God’s command. His hand was stayed before Isaac was slain; and the Apostle Paul, writing to the Hebrews, says this:

"By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense" (Hebrews 11:17–19).

Christ was the Lamb of God's providingWhen Isaac asked Abraham where was the lamb for the sacrifice, he said:

“My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering” (Genesis 22:8).

When Jesus was announced to Israel, John said, “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

Wanted: A King!

When Israel was established as a nation and asked for a king of their own, God further unfolded His purpose. In the covenant of the throne we find the words concerning the seed or offspring of David, who should sit upon David’s throne forever. God said of this coming King: “I will be his Father, and he shall be My son (2 Samuel 7:14). Under the guidance of the spirit of God, David says:

"The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool.” The Lord shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies!" (Psalm 110:1,2).

These words indicate that this descendant of David should for a time be with the Father in heaven, thence to return to earth to rule in the midst of his enemies, and occupy his throne in Zion, where David’s throne was established in the past.

Divine Status

The language used by David is very significant − “The Lord said unto my lord.” Jesus quotes this in his argument with the Pharisees, when they had been tempting him.

"While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose Son is he?” They said to him, “The Son of David” (Matthew 22:41– 42).

They were looking for a merely natural son of David to be his successor as the Messiah of Israel; but Jesus said, “How then does David in the Spirit call him ‘Lord’? (Matthew 22:43).

Why does David call his descendant “my Lord”?  What gave him a higher status than David himself possessed?

That terminology was altogether contrary to usual Jewish practice, in which a father had superiority over the son.

Jesus used the passage in connection with the subject of the paternity of the Messiah. His opponents were put to silence; they had no answer.

Yet the answer is to be found in the fact that the one who reigns on David’s throne, who is David’s descendant, would also be the Son of God. Jesus claimed to be that Son and the Pharisees could not evade the force of the argument. But they were not prepared to acknowledge that the Messiah must be the Son of God, and thereby be led to acknowledge that Jesus was all he claimed to be.

God in a Son

Now let’s look at some passages concerning the manifestation of God in a Son, where we find a similar usage of language to that concerning angels, a subject we reviewed in an earlier article. Following up the particular promise connected with David, we read this in Isaiah:

"There shall come a Rod from the stem of Jesse...""There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots. The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord" (Isaiah 11:1,2).

We can quite understand that this has reference to a descendant of Jesse, David’s father and that he would be possessed by the Spirit of God. The prophecy goes on to say:

"They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, who shall stand as a banner to the people; for the Gentiles shall seek him, and his resting place shall be glorious" (Isaiah 11:9–10).

The One who is described in the first verse as a Rod, is now described as the Root of Jesse.

How can one be at the same time the branch and the root; the offspring of Jesse and also the source of Jesse?

Jesus applies this same language to himself in the Apocalypse when he says:

"I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star" (Revelation 22:16).

Jesus is a descendant of David; but he is also the Son of God and because of this relationship to God he is the manifestation of the Source of all power, features which belong to God are attributed to him.

A Herald

Isaiah explains that the Coming of the Messiah would be heralded by someone who announced his appearance:

The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth; the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken” (Isaiah 40:3–5).

It was the custom in Eastern lands, before any monarch travelled along a road, for couriers to go in advance calling upon all to make due preparation in the clearing up of the roads.

When John the Baptist received messengers from the authorities who asked him who he was and what was his status, he referred to these very words in Isaiah’s prophecy saying:

"I am ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the Lord,” ’ as the prophet Isaiah said" (John 1:23).

Preparing the Way

John the Baptist was the courier who went in front announcing the coming of the Lord our God. How are we to understand language like this? Does it mean that the great Uncreate was about to appear in the midst of Israel?

Not at all.

But there was going to be a manifestation of God in the midst of Israel such as had never been before.

Because Jesus has, by inheritance, “obtained a more excellent name than the angels” (Hebrews 1:4), we should not be sur prised if, after the style of description used in connection with angels, he is called “God”, hence:

“Make straight in the desert a highway for our God,” for it was the way of the Lord.”

Jesus, who was thus announced by John, is to return to be Israel’s Messiah and they will be called upon to “behold your God” (Isaiah 40:9).

The cities of Judah shall have a ruler who will be a manifestation of God, for:

"Behold, the Lord God shall come with a strong hand, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him" (Isaiah 40:10).

When Jesus returns in the power of God, which has been given to him, he will rule for God, will reward his followers, and will undertake the great work of transforming the world to make it a paradise once again.

SEEK THE TRUTH WITH WRESTED SCRIPTURES!

 
 

Use this True Bible Teaching Resource to help understanding some of the more difficult passages that many take in isolation to the rest of the Bible and claim that they teach things that the Bible does not teach.

The Bible is a large book, but it teaches us the truth from beginning to end, therefore anything towards the end of the Bible eg. The New Testament must agree with what is taught in the Old Testament, also remember that the divisions of the Bible into Old and New Testaments is a manmade one, the whole Bible is God's WORD to us and must be undersood consistently as such.
