What does the Bible really teach? The Bible is an anthology, or collection of texts in various forms that were originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek. These texts include, among other things, instructions, stories, poetry, and prophecies.
The Bible was written over 1,600 years by some 40 different men. Most of them never met one another, yet their entire book inspired in all angle of life.
To show that all the scripture is inspired in all angle let see what the Bible account of 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV), ” All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
This verse, in no uncertain terms, reveals the primary reason the Bible is unlike any other book in the world. It was inspired by God, the Creator of the universe and you.
The Bible teaches us 4 important thing, this are:
- Real hope for the future.
- Reliable guidance for day-to-day living.
- Satisfying answers to life big questions.
- Improve one’s life.
Real hope for the future
The Bible not only explains why the world has problems, but it also shares the good news that these problems are only temporary and will be gone soon.
Let consider that in the Bible account of Jeremiah 29:11-12 (KJV), “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.”
These promises assist us in dealing with current problems, maintaining a positive attitude, and achieving long-term happiness.
Let also consider the Bible account of Romans 15:4 (KJV) and see the hope it gives us, ” For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”
This Scripture gives us encouragement to press on for the upward call of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.. so that through patient endurance we might have hope in Him – for Jesus is our blessed Hope – Jesus is our only hope for today and for the future.
Reliable guidance for day-to-day living
The Bible provides sound advice. It provides tips on how to deal with stress and enjoy our jobs. As we discuss this material, you will learn what the Bible says about these topics and much more.
The Bible is also like a powerful light. We can use the Bible to show us how to make good decisions and to help us see what lies ahead. Let consider that in the Bible account of Psalm 119:105 (KJV), ” Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
God’s Word is the light of truth written for our learning, to guide us away from every shadowy danger that crosses our path and to strengthen our faith in our Saviour as He gently leads us. It dispels the darkness in front of us.
Satisfying answers to life big questions
The Bible is providing answers to life’s big questions for millions of people around the world. Finding satisfying answers to life’s big questions is an important component of happiness.
Let see what we have in the account of Proverb 2:1-5 (KJV), ” My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.”
Pursuing God’s wisdom means to seek after it with intent. Those who earnestly seek heavenly wisdom, will never complain that they have lost their labour; and the freeness of the gift does not do away the necessity of our diligence as also seen in John 6:27.
Improve one’s life
Life will throw you a variety of challenges, both good and bad. However, these Bible verses about life remind you that God is always on your side. He’s there to rejoice with you when things are going well and to console you when things are going badly.
Isaiah 48:17-18 (KJV), ” Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.
18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:”
