It Is Written – Divine Proclamations

What is truth? Is the Bible God’s Word? How can we know with certainty? What did Jesus say about the Old Testament? The answers to these questions are the most important answers ever given to mankind.

The information to follow is either absolute or a total fraud … you decide. And remember your future is at stake … you are responsible for your own decisions, so read all the facts and choose you this day whom you will follow. God bless you!

Jesus testified that the Old testament is God’s Word (Divinely Inspired). For your own satisfaction and personal knowledge, look up the following verses: Matthew 5:18; 12: 40; 19:4; 22:29;  23:35; 24:15; Luke 4:25; 17:27; 20:37; 24:44; John 10:35. In these verses, Jesus confirmed the Old Testament and the Prophets. He confirmed that Adam and Eve were created by God; that Abel murdered Cane; that in Noah’s time a flood destroyed the world; that God spoke to Moses through the burning bush; that Elijah indeed lived and performed miracles; and even that Jonah was three days in the belly of a whale and Daniel made predictions. Christ confirmed the Old Testament.

People must learn Scripture, but just learning Scripture is not enough. People must experience Jesus Christ as God, as Lord, as Savior. It is the Deity of Christ that separates the Occult and the cults from true Christianity … Christ is God! Always has been, always will be! True Christianity is Christ is God. Christ is Truth! Christ is Light! Christ is Eternal Life! Christ is in the Father and the Father is in Christ. The Bible is the Word of God or Christ is not God (the Son of God)!

Christ stated many times that the Old Testament is God’s Word. Therefore, either Christ lied, or you are mistaken if you do not believe the Bible, in it’s entirety, is God’s Word. 

Jesus confirmed the Old Testament and Jesus promised the inspiration of the New Testament. Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit would direct the Disciples and their recall in writing the events of Christ’s life and His very words, which they did: Matthew 12:20; 28:18, 20; Mark 13:11; John 14:6; 16:13; Ephesians 2:20.

The Word of God (the Holy Bible) is what it claims to be — God’s Word. The Word of God is God’s Word because Christ Himself demonstrated that it is by numerous references to Old Testament history and by His promise that the Holy Spirit would direct the writer’s of the New Testament.

You must understand that everything we know about God is revealed by Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. So, either Jesus is who He proved Himself to be or He isn’t. Christ is the only hope of mankind or mankind has no hope, no future and no God. There is so much more that you must consider, if you are not already convinced, so read on … unless you are afraid you will be convinced.

The Bible does not defend its claims. It states them as emphatic and absolute. You either accept or reject the Bible; the Savior; and God’s Truths as found in the Bible. Either the Bible is what it claims to be or it isn’t. Christ is what He claimed to be or He isn’t. Following are excerpts from Scripture — the Bible claiming it’s authority from God.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:1 & 14a).

 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God (God breathed), and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).

“For the Word of God is living (literally alive) and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a critic (discerner) of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17).

“By faith we understand that the worlds (universe – all creation; and ages or periods of time; and space) were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:3).

“Now go, write it (God’s revelation) on a tablet before them and inscribe it on a scroll, that it may serve in time to come as a witness forever.” (Isaiah 30:8)

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

“But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for (here is the reason) no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:20-21).

All Scripture originated from God. It did not come by man, we have God’s Word on it, right here in 2 Peter 1:20-21.

“It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4; Luke 4:4).
