Continuing this afternoon, my friends.
No matter how you choose to 'study the Word', you, I, must always have the corresponding Holy Bible Scripture to read directly. It is important to ALWAYS remember, the Holy Spirit will 'quicken', 'enliven our spirit' to the 'truth'. John 16:13 provides audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html :
13 'But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.'
[Reading 'Verbatim', the Books of the Old Testament - 'Song of Songs' 'Review'; Bi-Monthly, Post-A/B, July 13/15, 2020]
The Holy Bible Scripture is considered to be the highest authority when it comes to things of God and 'Christianity' - defined as 'Our PERSONAL Relationship with God by grace through faith in Jesus Christ'. This 'truth' comes about due to the belief that Scripture was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. [Hebrews 1:1; 2 Peter 1:21] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Jesus said:
In the reading of Scripture, there is an aspect of interpretation that occurs as the reader attempts to derive meaning from the text that applies to their life.
When coming to read Scripture, we often read it with the intention of gleaning some kind of meaning that is applicable to our lives. The way we determine the meaning of a text is important, as it will affect the way in which we not only understand the text but will also affect our faith, theology, outlook, and way of life.
Proverbs Chapter 3 is an important chapter for you to consult at this time.
The process of interpreting, understanding, and appropriation of biblical texts is the field of hermeneutics.
The methods of interpretation used, as well as the previous understanding and bias we bring to the hermeneutic process, are vastly influential in the way Scripture is understood. Thus human reason and thought has a significant part to play in the interpretation of Scripture. Yet, and this is critically important, my friends, if interpretation of Scripture were to come down to human reason alone, how could we be certain of its truth? [Proverbs 3] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
You may be wondering at this point, 'How can we be certain that what we read is indeed truthful and beneficial to us, and interpret it appropriately, so that we are not lead away into - apostacy?
Hopefully, you will be better able to be on guard against 'apostates' and keeping clear of the 'deadly poison' to your soul and spirit, leading you into deadly 'apostacy', which means departure, revolt or rebellion.
My friends, in terms of religion, apostasy is the abandonment of, or a willful falling away from, the faith. It can be defined as the departure of religious practices, a rejection of beliefs once agreed upon, or even mockery of the religion. In Christianity, apostasy is the rejection of the faith by someone who formerly was a Christian.
It is a conscious and deliberate abandonment of faith in God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Bible as being - 'inspired', the 'truth', etc. It is - a person who turns their back on GOD, with no intention of returning!!! 'Walking with Him, no more'.
[Judas Iscariot, Psalm 41:9; Zechariah 11:12-14; Matthew 26:14-16, John 13:2,18, 26-28, 48; 27:3; John 6:66, 'most of those initially 'following Jesus'; Acts 15:1, 'judaizers'; 2 Timothy 4:10, 'Demas'.]
There are three dangers that could lead a Christian to commit apostasy: temptations, [Genesis 3:3-4]; deceptions, [Jeremiah 23:13]; and persecutions, [Luke 22:47]. Some specific causes include wordliness, moral lapse, forsaking spiritual living, and unbelief, all in truth, forsaking the Lord and His 'truth'.
[John 6:66] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Amen. Amen.
Are you wondering 'How can we be certain that what we read is indeed truthful and beneficial to us, and interpret it appropriately, and will not lead us away into 'apostasy'!?
The answer will become evident in this evening's post. Stay tuned!
Please continue with me and Jesus through the Holy Spirit this evening for our final post on 'hermeneutics' so that you may have more for your 'quiet review' with the Lord during the week-end, and before we begin the 'allegorical' posts of the 'Song of Songs' on Tues/Thurs, July 21-23, 2020, as the Lord wills. Amen. Amen.
