Devil in Pulpit  

      

   

FINDING A DEVIL IN YOUR CHURCH'S PULPIT


  1. The subject matter of the Bible shows it to be the Word of God. The Bible is always current. It involves every subject. It is the answer to all of life’s problems. Isn’t that incredible?
  1. Finally, consider the character of the Bible. The Bible shows throughout, that it is a supernatural book with power. Its author is truly God, so it is the highest authority possible on this earth.

 

Just How Did God Give The Word?

2 Peter 1:21 states, “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 Timothy 3:16 states, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”.

It is clear that God is the author of the Bible. It is also clear, that the Holy Spirit guided human writers in preparing the Word of God. It is very clear from the Hebrew and Greek originals, that God used the writer’s human personalities, literary styles, personal interest, and the writer’s own vocabulary and background. It is also apparent that God gave the exact words sometimes, but this was not the usual case. What then can we say? We can say that God put perfect knowledge, in relationship to writing the Bible, into the writer’s mind, by the Holy Spirit. God let the writers write the knowledge in their own way, but God was the master proof editor. In this method, the final copy, the Word of God, was perfect.

It is also clear that God in His foreknowledge, knew what the final Word would be, before the Bible was written down on the earth. As a matter of fact, God already had a copy of His Word, the Bible, in Heaven before it was ever written on earth. (Psalm 119:89). This in no way teaches the dictation theory. This false theory teaches that the human writers copied word for word what God said, just like a secretary. This theory is totally false. It is easy to see that this theory takes the human element out of His holy book, which God wanted. For example, Paul in Corinthians, asking God for permission to write truths, for a special time only.

What then does Psalm 119:89 teach us? It teaches us all about the perfect foreknowledge of God! This is the same knowledge of God, knowing before hand, those that will be saved, even before they are born.

 

What Language did God have the Bible written in?
