Christianity was supposed to be about becoming like Jesus.  
We went in the wrong direction.

The Supernatural Book


The Supernatural Book

Many people have no trouble accepting the premise in a horror or fantasy film of a book of magic or curses from which all sorts of magical supernatural power and confounding plot points emerge. However when consideration is turned to the bible (the only actually real supernatural book in the history of the world), Most see it as tedious, boring, antiquated, or inaccurate.

The reason it is held in such popular low esteem is that this supernaturally powerful book, has supernaturally evil forces aligned against it. Supposed “smart” people (Ro. 1:22) in universities have railed against it with evolution, higher criticism, and social justice contempt.

We are told in the bible of three things called truth, God, Jesus, and the bible. Truth is a concept that has lost a lot of its popularity in recent years. This is because it is absolute and therefore inconsistent with such recent fashion trends as the promotion of homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle (Jn. 3:19).

Jesus is also called the “word of God” (Jn. 1:1). As the second person of the triune God, Jesus was sent to accomplish the will of God. In a similar way the word of God is sent with a purpose;

Isa 55:10-11 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Jesus told Satan that there is spirit sustaining life in the word of God;

Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

The bible is powerless in the heart of those who have rejected God (1Co 2:14). However, for those who claim Christ, we should immerse ourselves in this conduit for the power and life of God to us. Jesus tells us that abiding in his word brings a knowledge of truth and associated freedom (Jn 8:31-32).

The bible was inspired (God breathed) for his purposes and our benefit (2Tim 3:16). However, more than a book of instruction, it is the means by which we can obtain eternal life (Act 13:46, Jn 6:63).

Those who would know Jesus (who is the word of God and truth), should allow his words to live in their heart. Peter did not understand all that Jesus taught, but he did recognize the words of life (Jn 6:68). The Christian is encouraged to dust off his bible and and allow the words of God to incrementally and supernaturally work in his heart to make him more like Jesus.
