THE HOLY BIBLE
We believe that the Bible is the indisputable word, divinely inspired by God.
The Bible contains history, biographies, poetry, advice, and prophecies.
IS THE WORD OF GOD
Jer. 1:9 “Then the Lord reached out with his hand and touched my mouth. He said to me, “See, I am putting my words in your mouth.”
1 Thess. 2:13 “Also, we always thank God because of the way you accepted His message. You heard His message from us, and you accepted it as the word of God, not the words of men. And it really is God’s message. And that message works in you who believe”.
HIS WORD IS ALIVE
Heb. 4:12 “God’s word is alive and working. It is sharper than a sword sharpened on both sides. It cuts all the way into us, where the soul and the spirit are joined. It cuts to the center of our joints and our bones. And God’s word judges the thoughts and feelings in our hearts”.
Isa. 40:8 “The grass dies and the flowers fall; but the word of our God will live forever”.
IT IS REAL
2 Pet. 1:16 “We have told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. What we told you were not just smart stories that someone invented. But we saw the greatness of Jesus with our own eyes”.
Jn. 12:38-41 “This was to make clear the full meaning of what Isaiah the prophet said: “Lord, who believed the things we told them? Who has seen the Lord’s power?” This is why the people could not believe: Isaiah also said, “He has blinded their eyes, he has closed their minds. This is so that they will not see with their eyes nor understand in their minds. This is so they will not come back to me and be forgiven.” Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about Him”.
Jn. 10:35 “This scripture called those people gods, the people who received God’s message. And scripture is always true”.
A WORD OF WARNING
Rev. 1:1-3 “This is the revelation of Jesus Christ. God gave this revelation to Jesus, to show his servants what must soon happen. And Jesus sent his angel to show it to his servant John. John has told everything that he has seen. It is the truth that Jesus Christ told him; It is the message from God. The one who reads the words of God’s message is happy; and the people who hear this message and do what is written in it are happy. The time is near when all of this will happen”.
IT IS USEFUL AND NECESSARY
Ps. 119:105 “Your word is like a lamp for my feet and a light for my way”.
Mt. 4:3-4 “Then you will crush the wicked. They will be like ashes under your feet. I will do this on that day,” says the Lord of heaven’s armies. “Remember the teaching of Mosesmy servant. I gave those laws and rules to him at Mount Sinai. They are for all the Israelites.”
Am. 3:7 “Before the Lord God does anything, he tells his servants the prophets”.
JESUS VALIDATED THE OLD TESTAMENT
Lk. 24:44 “He said to them, “Remember when I was with you before? I said that everything written about me just happen – everything in the Law of Moses, the Books of the Prophets, and the Psalms.”
THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
Jn. 16:13-14 “But when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truths. He will not speak his own words. He will speak only what he hears and will tell you what is to come. The Spirit of truth will bring glory to me. He will take what I have to say and tell it to you”.
PETER VALIDATED PAUL'S WRITINGS
2 Pet. 3:15-16 “Remember that we are saved because our Lord is patient. Our dear brother Paul told you the same thing when he wrote to you with the wisdom that God gave him. Paul writes about this in all his letters. Sometimes there are things in Paul’s letters that are hard to understand. And some people explain this things falsely. They are ignorant and weak in faith. They also falsely explain the other scriptures. But they are destroying themselves by doing that”.
