A book of parables and mytholegy written by men for men and transated from many languages by a group of men who were in there time called (SCRIBES) and in our time called (JEWISH LAWYERS.) The word of God written by Jewish lawyers is a credebility problem for me. Is it any wonder that these Jewish lawyers self anointed the Jewish people as Gods chosen people.

Subject: The BIBLE
I believe the Bible is God’s “personal letter” to the people dictated to and written by His prophets and Apostles. 2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Pet 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Pet 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

While some people find the Holy Bible is book of many contradictions, on the contrary I find it a book of almost perfect in harmony (Except some verses in the KJV where it adopts the word Jehovah). This I discovered when I did not depend on others for interpretation, and did not use my own understanding. The following verses substantiate my “discovery” and this I account, not on my own personal capability, but by God’s revelation of the intended message for His words. The Holy Bible is God’s written words enough for us to know everything about God and His words: • Deu 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but [b]those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever[/b], that we may do all the words of this law. This, except the “secret things” that were not caused to be written: • Rev 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and [b]write them not.[/b] Before I did not realize the following: • Eze 20:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak [b]parables[/b]? • Psa 78:2 I will open my mouth in a [b]parable[/b]: I will utter [b]dark sayings of old[/b]: • Mar 4:34 [size=18]But without a parable spake he not unto them[/size]: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples. But now I am convinced that ONLY GOD can and should expound on His words: • Mar 4:34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and [size=18]when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.[/size] Without God’s revelation of the intended message, the trap for the Natural Man (1 Cor 2:14) is to simply depend on the “letter” or literal interpretation of the word: • 2 Cor 3:6 Who also hath made us [size=18]able ministers of the new testament[/size]; [u]not of the letter[/u], [size=18]but of the spirit[/size]: [u]for the letter killeth[/u], but [size=18]the spirit giveth life[/size]. Because the words of God are like prophecies that are expected to happen, ONLY God can interpret them: • 2 Pet 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture [b]is of any private interpretation[/b]. Only the UNBELIEVERS question the following: • 2 Pet 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but [b]holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. [/b] • 2 Tim 3:16 [b]All scripture is given by inspiration of God[/b], and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Because of human perception on the word of God, Theologians and Bible scholars of all time have been cracking their heads trying to reconcile the Second Coming of Christ with what Jesus Himself emphatically told His Disciples. After giving the different signs for His Coming in Mat 24, He told them: • Mat 24:34 [size=18]Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. [/size] • Mat 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. • Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Who among professing apostles of Christ today clearly expound on the foregoing TRUTH? It seems that they have not read what our Lord Jesus told Saul of Tarsus when He introduced Himself to him: * Act 9:5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: [size=18]it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. [/size]
