LET THE BIBLE SPEAK – March 08, 2020

Today there is a famine of the Word of God in the land. Psalms 96:5 “For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens” Israel turned from serving the one true God to serve gods and idols of the heathen nations. Over and over God chastised Israel and many times they would turn back to serve the one God. Exodus 20:3 “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” Vs. 5 “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God..” Another cause of Famine in the land is tradition. Paul states in Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the Rudiments of the world, and not after Christ” There is a tradition after men meaning teaching and then there is teaching after Christ and the Bible. Tradition of men is man made laws claiming to be from the Bible but just sayings or rules from the past and passed down from one generation to another. Man must follow the Word of God and be careful of teachings that are not based on the Bible. There is a saying ‘that there are many ways to heaven’. Stop and think where is that found in the Bible! Jesus said in John 14:6″Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me” Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” Read the verses before it and see who Luke is talking about. Many people are confused by so much religion and talk but a wise person will go to the Bible and find the way to heaven. A person could read John 3:16 and find the way to Heaven. Luke 13:3 “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” Don’t gamble with your life and miss Heaven! Despite all the sayings and traditions of man a person can find the truth. John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”
