Scripture Study- The Bible, The Living Word Of YAH! 

10 Jul

Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

The Word of YAH, The Holy Bible is not merely words on a page but truly transformative! The term living means truly alive. The Word of YAH created the natural world as recorded in Psalm 33:6, “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.” The Scriptures are so much more than words on paper, but words of the living God.

Dictated to man and recorded, when we read the scriptures it’s powerful as stated in the first verse of Hebrews 4:12. It can create, revive (John 11:43) and most importantly save (Romans 10:13). Daily scripture reading empowers the Spirit and unlocks creative thinking, talent, purpose, healing and knowledge of who we are in Jesus Christ, Shalom.

Scripture Study- Mark 8:35 

5 Jun

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.”

In Mark 8:35 Christ simplifies the Gospel in one short statement. When Christ said, “whoever desires to save their life will lose it,” references those who look to other means other than the Cross for salvation in the end will lose. This means man made philosophy, religions, people, and good deeds are all meaningless. 

The Most High provided the only atonement for sin in Christ  (Acts 4:12) based on his divine law. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) and all have sinned (Romans 3:23). Therefore the sacrifice Christ made and us accepting him as our Savior can be our only means for redemption in the eyes of YAH. 

In the latter part of the scripture Jesus states, “whoever loses their life for My sake and the Gospel will save it” means to deny your own will  for His, to spread the Gospel. This good news of the Gospel is the saving grace for everyone, in knowing that we can once again be made whole. In Jesus Christ their is restoration, forgiveness, purpose, love, edification, knowledge of truth, and most importantly life, Shalom
