Thy Word is Truth
It’s hard to believe God Loves us so much that He left the glory of heaven, but He did ... He did it for you and me! God humbled Himself and became flesh, in the human form of Jesus. It is critical to understand this truth!
Philippians 2:5-11 – “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the earth; 11 And [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” The word ‘deity’ doesn’t appear in the Bible but means ‘Godhead; divinity; Supreme Being’. See Romans 1:17-23, Col. 2:6-9.
Many people today don't understand the deity of Christ and that God was manifest in the flesh (manifest = declared, displayed, revealed), but we will be accountable to God for that mystery on Judgment Day.
'But I like the 'bible' I'm reading.' Don't let pride get in your way ... it's not about YOU, it's about HIM.
1Timothy 3:16 - “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”
Read and study God’s Word, rightly dividing the truth. Don’t fall for the revisions and changes man has made here on earth … God has already settled His Word in heaven. Confess it now before it’s too late! Be sure you are a man of the TRUE Word, not man’s changed word.
You say the King James is archaic and hard to understand? Wouldn’t you expect Almighty God’s Word to be beautiful; to stand out and be different than today’s worldly writings? (be not conformed …)
What will you say on Judgment Day when God asks you about the mystery of godliness?
Jesus is a man of His Word!
