    God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” (Heb. 1:1–2).

    The Bible is the storehouse of God’s revelation. For Years liberal theologians and those who hate God have claim the Bible as merely a collection of man’s religious thoughts and desire. But the Bible is much much more than that. It is in fact God’s revelation to man. God’s thoughts, feelings, aspirations, and goals as given through His Spirit to the human authors. We could never have known God’s identity, much less His attributes, viewpoint, or commands if God hadn’t shown them to man. Nor could man know his own origin, purpose, or destiny. Paul said, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (1 Cor. 2:9–10). In 2 Timothy 3:16 he adds, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” God inspired every word of Scripture and speaks on every page. Just as important God will keep it error free. Jesus said “ Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away (Luke 21:33) From the close of the Old Testament to the arrival of John the Baptist, there were approximately four hundred years during which God was silent. But that silence was shattered when John announced the coming of Christ. From that time on, God spoke through His Son. The Gospels record His life and teachings, the book of Acts shows the spread of His teachings through the apostles and early church, the epistles apply His teachings to everyday life, and Revelation tells of His triumphant return and the consummation of divine revelation. Isn’t it wonderful to know God’s perspective on life and history? (To God alone be the Glory):godisgood:
