The best way to get the most out of these bible questions and the scripture answer that I give…
- Read the bible question, s l o w l y.
- Read the bible scripture answer, s l o w l y.
- Get your bible out to study and look up the scripture references cited. 2 Timothy 2:15, KJV.
- Underline and make a note by the scripture and try to find a similar one. Luke 12:12, KJV.
- Ask the Holy Ghost to teach you the scripture that you are reading. John 14:26, KJV.
- By faith, be willing and obedient to do the scripture as close as possible, don’t add nor take away from God’s word. And don’t make something up in your imagination. Isaiah 1:19, KJV. Revelation 22:18, KJV. Romans 1:21, KJV.
- Be alert; to twisting, manipulating, changing or reordering the scriptures; the wording, the spelling, even the punctuation and capitalization. 2 Corinthians 2:17, KJV
- I realize this all sounds overbearing or ‘legalistic’… but it’s for our own good. There is more here than most of us realize nor are willing to accept. 1 Corinthians 13:12, KJV. That’s why Jesus said, “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” Matthew 11:15, KJV.
- As time goes on, you will see more believers struggle with following Jesus Christ. This is a big reason why we need to be strong in relying on this version of God’s word. The Authorized King James Version. And not relying on the teaching’s of a minister, preacher or pastor; including all the modern bible versions created since the year 1881; starting from the Revised Version. The pure and preserved word of God is our standard. Psalm 12:6-7, KJV. Jeremiah 4:1-6, KJV.
- The result of not doing all this correctly: “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” John 6:66, KJV. (Take a look at the scripture number! ‘666’ Be very alert my beloved.) 2 John 1:7, KJV. Ephesians 6:11, KJV.
As I was putting this page together, this scripture came to me; something to meditate on…
1 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.
2 And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.
3 For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.
4 Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.
5 Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities.
6 Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction.
– in Jeremiah 4:1-6 , KJV
