So Adriana is asking can we believe the Bible? What is special about this millennia book?

Speaker 2

I hope you look up.

Speaker 3

I think it’s to the millennium thousands like this millenary. That’s what I understood. Am I wrong? It’s a book of thousands of years and really it’s the oldest document we have as far as I know. And yes, you can trust the Bible. I put my whole stock all my life in this book and I’ll tell you why personally I’ll say just because everything I’ve ever read in the Bible and claimed in my life has come to pass, I’ve never found one promise to fail ever. And I absolutely mean that with all of my heart if I’ve taken it to God. And in faith, said Lord, by faith I am trusting in Your Word what you promised to me in this. And God has come through miraculously over and over again. So as a personal testimony, yes, absolutely. There’s been times where I said god, you said in Psalm 34 that those that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. And I was going to have to drop out of school and miraculously money appeared from nowhere to pay my tuition. I mean literally, God has come through so many times in so many ways god has done that when I come to Him by faith, believing his word by faith and trusting in Him.

Speaker 3

Now, as far as based on the Bible, can we trust this book? And I would say absolutely yes. And you see this first instance in two Peter, chapter one. And in verse 16 it says for we have not followed cunningly devised fables when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. So basically the Bible wasn’t written by some people making up some lame story. These were people that saw with their own eyes what Jesus was able to do, his miracles, his truth. And so based on their eyewitness account, they wrote the Bible in the Old Testament. Also continuing on, when you see in verse 19 of the same chapter, we have also a more sure word of prophecy. Because read prophecy and you will have no doubt the Bible is absolutely true. We have also a more sure word of prophecy, where until you do well, that you take heed as unto a light that shines in a dark place until the day dawns of the morning star rises in your hearts. And in verse 20 it goes on to say, knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation.

Speaker 3

It’s not like God kept this to Himself or just to us. Private interpretation. But if you see in the next verse, in verse 21, it reads for prophecy never came by the will of man. Not that men made up something and hoped it came to pass. No, but holy men of God, men set apart for God’s work spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. And so again we see that the Bible and his prophecy and all the truth in it was written by inspiration of God Himself in the form of the Holy Spirit. And so can we trust it? Absolutely. And again, this is based on men who saw God working in their lives of their own experience. And so I just think it’s so amazing how God is just so faithful in everything he says. And you can indeed trust the Bible. Again, just reemphasizing this foundation of prophecy that you see in Isaiah chapter 46 and verses nine and ten really quickly says, remember the former things of old, for I am God and there is none else. I am God and there is none like me. Because again the God of the Bible in verse ten says, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times, things that are not yet done, saying my counsel shall stand and I will do all my pleasure.

Speaker 3

So again, look at the Bible and its prophecies. Looking back in history and what it said before it ever came to pass, you’ll see that the prophecies of the Bible are absolutely fulfilled perfectly. There is nothing that has failed in all of his word. And just when it comes to the Bible and understanding it, you do have to look at it as a millennial book. It is a book based on thousands of years. But why is that? Again, you see that in two Peter chapter three. In verses eight and nine, it says, but beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. So the Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but his long suffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. So yes, things in God’s time for Him is very quick, but for us it’s a very long time. But we have to remember that with God 1000 years is as a day. And so it’s kind of like we’re in this week of history where we see the result of sin and we have to make this choice.

Speaker 3

Are we going to choose God’s way or the devil’s way? Because there’s only this time in the history of the universe where we’re being tested and we’re having to choose do we want to choose God in his word in his way, or do we want to choose the devil and selfishness in his way? And so God gives us that choice and I’m just so grateful for that. And basically God is only allowing all these things to happen because he wants all of us to be saved. And so just going back to that chapter in Isaiah 46 and verses twelve and 13, it says, hearken unto me, listen to me, you stout hearted that are far from righteousness. I will bring near my righteousness. It shall not be far off. And my salvation shall not tear. And I will play salvation in Zion for Israel, my glory. So basically that God is going to bring salvation. And it is the salvation you read about in the Bible. And you can trust it because it is coming to pass. We’re seeing it happen. We’re seeing prophecy unfold before very eyes in the world around us. And we know that Jesus is coming very soon.

Speaker 3

And we can have salvation through him as we get to know him through his Word. And we trust in him, in all his promises and all the things that he says. Jr. Wendy, any other thoughts on that?

Speaker 2

Yeah, one thought. You were pretty good on getting what millennia meant.

Speaker 1

We wanted to look it up just to be sure.

Speaker 3

I like your floating.

Speaker 2

Yes, we can make it bigger for people if they want.

Speaker 3

It’S at the bottom period of 1000 years. Yes, definitely. And it’s interesting because the Bible was written over 2500 years. Moses started writing it in his time, but obviously the stories were there before. And it took I think it was written over the span of over 2500 years, over three continents, by over 40 authors to make 66 books. And yet all of them over these thousands of years are in unison, all sync. It all comes together beautifully. So, I mean, other than a divine mind influencing this there can’t be any other source other than a God that was consistent through all this time, in my opinion. Amen.
