Chapter 17



I have included passages as they relate to the topics in this book. As you read them realize that all truth comes through the Holy Spirit. People’s decisions are based on understanding. Those who choose to derive knowledge from the world will think quite differently that those who belong to the Lord. 

The understanding the Lord issues you in regard to these passages will require your growth in the spirit. In God’s time and in consideration of His truth you will understand as God intended from the beginning of time. He thought of you as He created the universe.

Do not read into scripture the views of the world. Read, pray, meditate. Listen to the small still voice of the Lord. Recognize the meaning of scriptural truth when the Lord thunders. 

1In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He existed in the beginning with God. 3Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity.,  5And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.,

John 1:1

The Bible is not of man. It is the inspired word of God. The word is He. 

14The Word became flesh and pitched his tent among us. We gazed on his glory, the kind of glory that belongs to the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

The word is He. And He is Jesus Christ. The Bible herein declares its own majesty. There is nothing, no doctrine, no custom, no tradition, no law, no other God, nor man that supersedes or holds more authority than the Holy Bible. Those things referred to in the Bible are of the present tense. In God’s reality time does not exist. The Holy Bible is not only the word of God. In the absence of time, it is, was, and will always be, that which is Jesus Christ, the Lord, God, and savior of the world. 

It is interesting to consider that the only true physical constant in the Universe is the speed of light. God, being the only truth, is the light of the World. 

Finally, consider this:

6And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. 8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. 9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God. 10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 

20He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ bewith you all. Amen. 

Revelation 22;6

No man can save another. No man can give another peace or understanding. All knowledge and understanding comes from the Holy Spirit. We can only lift each other up to the Lord and introduce others to Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit does the rest. He is knocking. It is time to open the door and let Him in. Be thankful that there is strife in your life. God chose this time and these trials to get your attention. Open the door! 

36And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 

Luke 12:36

20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 

Revelations 3:20

16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 

John 3:16
