Is The Bible And All Scripture Inspired By God – Spiritual Reading.



The seventh thing that the Bible makes plain regarding the work of the Holy Spirit in the various writers of Scripture, is that all Scripture, that is everything contained in all the books of the Old and New Testament, is inspired of God. We are distinctly taught this in 2 Tim. 3:16, 17.


Here we read, “All Scripture (more exactly, every Scripture) is given by inspiration of God (more literally, God-breathed), and is profitable for doctrine, (or teaching), for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (rather, instruction which is in righteousness), that the man of God may be perfect (rather, complete) thoroughly furnished(better, furnished completely) unto all good works (rather, every good work).”


An attempt has been made to obscure the full force of these words by a revised translation given in both the English Revision and American Standard Version. In this revised translation, the words are rendered as follows: “Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness; that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work.”


There is absolutely no warrant in the Greek text for changing “Every Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, etc.,” into “Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, etc.” “Every” is in the Greek. There is no “is” in the Greek. It must be supplied, as is often the case in translating from Greek into English.


“Is” must be supplied somewhere, either before “given by inspiration” (or God-breathed), or else supplied after it, in the latter case necessitating the change of “and” into “also” (a change which is possible, but very uncommon); and there is not a single instance in the New Testament outside of this in which two adjectives coupled by the simplest copulative “and (kai)” are ripped apart and the “is” placed between them and an “and” changed into “also.”


The other construction, that of the Authorised Version, is not at all uncommon. The translation of the Revisers does violence to all customary usage of the Greek language. But we do not need to dwell upon that, for, even accepting the changes given in the Revision, the thought is not essentially changed; for if Paul had said what the revisers make him say that “Every Scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, etc.,” there can be no question but by “every scripture inspired of God” he referred to every Scripture contained in the Old Testament.


Here, then, taking whichever translation you will, we have the plain teaching that every Scripture of the Old Testament is “God-breathed” or “inspired of God.” Certainly if we can believe this about the Old Testament there is no difficulty in believing it about the New, and there can be no question that Paul claimed for his own teaching an equal authority with the O. T. teaching.


This we shall see clearly under the next head. And not only did Paul so claim, but the Apostle Peter also classes the teaching of Paul with the O. T. teaching as being “Scripture.” Peter says in 2 Pet. 3:15, 16, “Even as our beloved brother Paul also, according to the wisdom given unto him, wrote unto you; (16) as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, wherein are some things hard to be understood, which the ignorant and unsteadfast wrest, as they do also the other Scriptures, unto their own destruction.” Here Peter clearly speaks of Paul’s epistles as being “Scripture.”

Who Gives Prophets And Apostles The Words To Speak – Spiritual Reading.



The 6thing that the Bible makes clear as to the inspiration of the apostle and prophets is that, the Holy Spirit in the Prophets and Apostles gave not only the thought but also gave the words in which the thought was to be expressed. We find this very clearly stated in 1 Cor. 2:13: “Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words.” 


One of the most popular of the false theories of Inspiration in our day is that the Holy Spirit was the author of the thought, but that the Apostles were left to their own choice of words in the expression of the thought, and that therefore in studying the Bible we cannot emphasise the exact meaning of the words, but must try to find the thought of God that was back of the words, and which the writer has more or less inaccurately expressed.


There are many teachers in our theological seminaries to-day, and in our pulpits, who speak very sneeringly and superciliously of those who believe in Verbal Inspiration,—i.e., those who believe that the Holy Spirit chose the very words in which the thought he was teaching was to be expressed, but however sneeringly they may speak of those who believe in Verbal Inspiration, certainly the Bible claims that it was verbally inspired.


The passage which I have just read makes it as plain as language can possibly make it that the “words” in which the Apostle spoke were not “words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth.” Now if this is not the fact, if only the thought that was given to Paul was the thought of God, and he clothed the thought in his own words, then Paul was a thoroughly deceived man on a fundamental point, in which case no dependence at all can be placed in his teachings on any point, or else he was a deliberate fraud, in which case the quicker we burn up his books the better for us and all concerned.


There is no possibility of finding any middle ground, and the attempts to find a middle ground have landed those who have tried it in all kinds of absurdities. If you have an exact and logical mind, you must take your choice between Verbal Inspiration and bald infidelity. Paul distinctly states that the words in which he conveyed to others the truth that was revealed to him were the words which the Holy Spirit taught him. 


The Holy Spirit himself has anticipated all these modern ingenious, but wholly unbiblical and utterly illogical and entirely false theories regarding his own work in the Apostles. The theory that “the concept” was inspired but the words in which the concept was expressed were not, was anticipated by the Holy Spirit Himself and exploded 1800 years before our supposedly wise 19th century theological teachers conceived it, and attempted to foist it upon an unsuspecting public.


It was exploded eighteen centuries before it was exploited. Furthermore, the theory is absurd in itself. As the only way in which thought can be conveyed from one mind to another, from one man’s mind to another man’s mind, or from the mind of God to the mind of man is by words, therefore if the words are imperfect the thought expressed in those words is necessarily imperfect.


The theory is an absurdity on its very face, and it is difficult to see how intelligent men could have ever deceived themselves into believing such a thoroughly illogical theory. If the words are not inspired the Bible is not inspired. Let us not deceive ourselves; let us face facts.

The theory is an absurdity on its very face, and it is difficult to see how intelligent men could have ever deceived themselves into believing such a thoroughly illogical theory. If the words are not inspired the Bible is not inspired. Let us not deceive ourselves; let us face facts.


Furthermore, the more carefully and minutely one studies the wording of the statements of this wonderful book—the Bible—the more he will become convinced of the marvelous accuracy of the very words used to express the thought. To a superficial thinker the doctrine of Verbal Inspiration may appear questionable or even absurd, but any regenerate and Spirit-taught man who ponders the words of the Scripture day by day, and year after year, will become thoroughly and immovably convinced that the wisdom of God is in the very words used as well as in the thought which is expressed in the words.


It is a significant and deeply impressive fact that our difficulties with the Bible rapidly disappear as we note the precise language used. The changing of a word or letter, or of a tense, case or number, would oftentimes land us in contradiction or untruth, but taking the words exactly as written, difficulties disappear and truth shines forth.


Countless times people have come to me with apparent difficulties and supposed contradictions in the Bible and asked a solution, and I have pointed them to the exact words used and the solution was found in taking the words exactly as written. It was because they changed in a slight degree the very words that God spoke that a difficulty had seemed to arise.


The Divine origin of nature shines forth more and more clearly the more closely we examine it under the microscope. As by the use of a powerful microscope we see the perfection of form and the adaptation of means to end in the minutest particles of matter, we are overwhelmingly convinced that God, a God of infinite wisdom and power, a wisdom extending down to the minutest parts of matter, is the author of the material universe: so likewise the divine origin of the Bible shines forth more and more clearly under the microscope.


The more minutely we study the Bible the more we note the perfection with which the turn of a word reveals the absolute thought of God. It was because they changed in a slight degree the very words that God spoke that a difficulty had seemed to arise. The Divine origin of nature shines forth more and more clearly the more closely we examine it under the microscope.

The more minutely we study the Bible the more we note the perfection with which the turn of a word reveals the absolute thought of God.


An important question, and a question that has puzzled many writers at this point, is: If the Holy Spirit is the author of the very words of Scripture how do we account for the variations in style and diction? How is it, for example, that Paul always used Pauline language, and John used Johannean language, and Peter used language that was characteristic of himself?


The answer to this question is very simple and is two-fold: First, even though we could not account at all for this fact, it would have little weight against the explicit statement of God’s Word with any one who is humble enough and wise enough to recognise that there are a great many things which he cannot account for at all which could be easily accounted for if he knew a little more.


It is only the man who has such amazing and stupendous conceit that he thinks he knows as much as God, in other words, that he is infinite in wisdom, who will give up an explicit statement of God’s Word simply because he sees a difficulty in the way of the acceptance of that statement, which he in his limited knowledge cannot solve. But there is a second answer, and an all-sufficient one, and that is this: these variations in style and diction are easily accounted for.


The Holy Spirit is infinitely wise. He Himself is the Creator of Man, and of man’s power of speech, and therefore he is quite wise enough and has quite enough facility in the use of language in revealing truth to and through any individual to use words, phrases and forms of expression that are in that person’s ordinary vocabulary and forms of thought, and He is also quite wise enough to make use of that person’s peculiar individuality in revealing the truth through him. It is one of the marks of the Divine wisdom of this book that the same Divine truth is expressed with absolute accuracy in such widely variant forms of expression.

You have heard the blasphemy! What do you think?”

Who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.

1 Peter 2:23-24

John 19:1-3


Jesus was wounded so that you can be healed.

But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.

Jesus was mocked so that you be receive genuine promises and destiny.

When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand.

And carried our sorrows;

And for My clothing they cast lots.”

Why are You so far from helping Me,
And from the words of My groaning?

What Is More Important - Power Or Money - Blog Of The Day Blog Post Banner Image

What Is More Important – Power Or Money – Blog Of The Day.

The debate on what is more important, Power or Money is a controversial and long ranging one.

Many people including preachers have argued that Money is the most important thing in this world because Money is the medium of exchange we need to acquire valuables in this world.

Some preachers have gone as far as quoting King Solomon using the scripture below to push their arguments in the importance of money.

A feast is prepared for laughter, and wine makes life happy, and money is the answer for everything.
Ecclesiastes 10:19

A feast is prepared for laughter, and wine makes life happy, and money is the answer for everything. Ecclesiastes 10_19 Bible Verse Instagram Post

Other people say that money leads to power and without money one can not have power and often allude to the fact that poor people have no power and influence.

On the other side of the debate, a few people argue that without power, money is useless. Money without power is prone to be misused and will soon be depleted since a person with no power also has no will power and therefore no self control.

Extrapolating these arguments to the Church, a few preachers have said that what believers need more than money is power because that is what Jesus promised his disciples before ascending to heaven.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Acts 1:8

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea Acts 1_8 Bible Verse Instagram Post

Without the power of God through the Holy Spirit, we cannot do the work of God satisfactorily and successfully.

For believers and the church to be relevant in this generation and the perilous times that we live in, they need to take back their power and position in this realm.

Unfortunately many believers have no idea about the power they possess because they are focusing on the wrong things.

“Jesus answered them, “You are deceived, because you don’t know the Scriptures or the power of God.”
Matthew 22:29

Jesus answered them, “You are deceived, because you don’t know the Scriptures or the power of God. Matthew 22_29 Bible Verse Instagram Post

I pray that, as believers we shall be able to recognize our power and position in Jesus Christ and take our rightly places in this world.

A Pastor, musician and evangelist who blogs at Rethinking Scripture has brilliant and daringly bold views on the prosperity gospel that has filled our pulpits and how the Church has grown weak by giving away it’s power in exchange for prosperity and money.

He shares his thoughts on his blog in a series titled, “The Church: Abdicaation Of Power. 

Follow the links after each exceprt to read the whole article.

“On a Sunday morning a week or two back I was channel surfing looking for something to listen to.  I came across a broadcast of an American national preacher.  He started his service by asking the congregation to stand raise their Bibles in the air and follow him as he recited a self-esteem creed.  I listened totally shocked, after about five to ten seconds I had had enough and turned the channel.  There was not one thing that pointed the congregation or the listeners watching on the television to the Gospel of Christ.  It was pure garbage of “positive thinking”.

Somewhere through the decades the message of the cross has been replaced by the gospel of “I”.  This is not the message Christ spoke to his disciples when he said …

via The Church: Abdication Of Power -Part One

“While I travelled with an evangelist who preached the prosperity gospel sometimes I would talk to ladies and men who would tell me that they gave their rent money to the preacher believing that God would return it to them in a great financial miracle.  They would tell me that they gave their food money and the only thing they had left to eat “cat food”.  Yes, I know that sounds far fetched but that are some of the things I have been told by many coming to the meetings.

I do know that there are some pastors in pulpits who do not subscribe to the prosperity message.  Many of these pastors live an honest living wage, some supplement their income by working a secular job also.

The prosperity gospel has stripped many in the body of Christ from the message of the cross.  This message gives a false security to those who follow it.

Somewhere the message of the cross has been taken away and in its place this damnable doctrine the “prosperity gospel”.  They have abdicated power for prosperity.  Their faith is misguided.”

via The Church: Abdication Of Power-Part Two

The message of the cross is a distant memory except for those of generations past.  Sanctuaries look like the clubs one would enter on a Saturday night.  The music could be mistaken for that of a soft rock radio station.  Everything that is done is for one purpose, the purpose of fleshly stimulation.  None which magnifies the Lord, lifts our spirit heavenward.

Yes, there are those who have not succumed to these methods, yet, they are few and far scattered across the globe.  The message of the cross is greeted with shouts of “we don’t want your bloody religion”.  It is only the message of the cross that pierces the stony heart of man to reveal to man that the only way to have forgiveness is through the blood that was shed on a cross made from a dogwood tree.

There is no urgency of the coming of the Lord, people somehow feel that the good times will never end.  Oh, how they are wrong.  We are not promised tomorrow, it is only by the sovereign grace of God.

May The Favor Of The Lord Our God Rest On Us – Blessings Bible Verses.



The Bible Psalms are a great resource that offer encouragement for difficult times, depression, anxiety and the various storms of life. In addition, they are full of many promises from the Lord on enriching our lives and blessing us so that we can live lives of prosperity and goodness.


In the current world that we live in, that despises the profound and everlasting favor of the Lord in exchange for fleeting and short term prosperity offered by the world, my prayer is that people will come back to seeking heavenly blessings that don’t rust or fade.


I pray that people will once again earnestly seek the Lord with all their mind, soul, heart and being so that he can graciously look upon our earth and send us blessings, prosperity and favor that our lives and the whole earth desperately needs.


The Bible is true! God’s promises are just as valid now as they were during the time the Psalms were written by King David and the other Psalmists. Psalm 121 is a particularly uplifting Psalm that first of helps us offer praise and thanks to the Lord who made the heavens, the earth and everything.


It speaks of a God who is ever present and we can count on during those particularly tough times when we desperately need help and there is no one to give it to us. Music has a great way of uplifting our souls when we feel worn out, well, if you are feeling particularly exhausted and stressed, why not listen to  this really cool Youtube Video with some totally upbeat music.
