Inspired By God

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

It is very important that we always remember the above verse, for it is the main key for unlocking the Bible!

Man wrote the Bible by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit! 1 Corinthians 2:13 tells us that the things they spoke and wrote were, “not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” And in John 6:63 (NKJV) we find, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”

The greatest minds in the world cannot understand the Bible; it has to be revealed to us by the Holy Spirit! As it says in 1 Corinthians 2:7, “we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:” And in verse10, “God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

Before we study the Bible we all need to ask the Holy Spirit to open our minds to understand the things of the Spirit!

The Holy Spirit inspired the words of the Bible and only He can open our eyes so that we can begin to understand the things of the Spirit.

Prayer
Father God, we thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit so that we can begin to understand the things that are real and eternal.
Amen
