The Bible on the Bible

The Bible makes no claims about being the word of God. It is written there that a person, Yeshua, often called Jesus, is the word of God. It is also written there that, while the Scripture cannot be broken, it is not to be used as a direct guide to eternal life. It is to be used to find one's way to Yeshua, the Word of God, who in turn gives eternal life. This "eternal life," in turn is defined as "knowing the one true God, Jehovah, and His Son, Yeshua."

So, the message found in the Bible is this. Use the commands and wisdom found in the writings to get to Yeshua. Become His sheep, learn to know His voice, do what He says (keep His commandments), and you will come to know His Father, Jehovah. Hearkening to the voice of Jehovah, to keep and do all He commands, will cause you to have abundant life, freedom from the power of evil, and empowerment from the Holy Spirit to heal, do miracles, cast out demons, etc.

Meanwhile, searching the Scriptures thinking that in them you will find life is a fatal mistake. They are plain in their statement that "eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil" leads only to death. The tree of life, the alternative, is a Person, and the only way anyone will live is "walking humbly with their God." So, anyone who chooses life over death, and takes the Bible in hand to fulfil that choice, is seeking the companionship of a Person, who will speak to them and tell them what to do to overcome evil and live. It is written in Scripture that evil is empowered by rebellious angels, whose works can only be frustrated in this manner.

Examination of the Bible with any other agenda shows the book to be worthless, full of contradictions and confusion. This may be by design.

I encourage anyone to read the Bible with this prayer: "I am reading this because I want to have a heart to heart conversation with Yeshua. Any help from spirits committed to truth and love will be welcomed and put to good use. Amen."

Those who do not want to meet Yeshua personally will find the Bible a foolish or dangerous book.
