holy Scriptures

Of all the many books this world contains there is only one that claims to be a direct revelation from God, telling us of Himself and His purpose for our lives. holy Scriptures is a rare Book in that it is a collection of books written by human authors inspired by God and are an account of God’s revelation and plan of salvation for the human race.

What we learn from the Bible itself is that it is the inspired writings from God. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17. All Scripture, both the Old Testament and the New, is inspired by God. The New Testament is observe to the reliability of the Old Testament, repeatedly quoting the words of the Old Testament. These two books within the Book stand on the observe of each other.

The apostle Peter declares: ” For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:21. So certain is this truth that such expressions as “consequently saith the Lord,” “God said,” and similar assertions, are found more than 2,500 times in the Bible.

Typical of these is David’s exclamation: “The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me; his information was on my tongue.” 2 Samuel 23:2. God spoke His eternal truths by holy men who were called to prophets and apostles. The strength of the Holy Spirit came on them. By visions, dreams, and by other method, there were directed to speak and write.

So we can say that the Bible is a very human book and however, it is a divine book in addition, for it is the only book in the complete world that claims to be “God-breathed”. It is humanity’s precious gift from God. It is our roadmap and guide on our journey to the New Jerusalem.
