Here is an interesting statistic that I learned tonight. 28% of the body of Christ today does not believe that the scriptures (that is the Cannonized Christian Bible) are literal. Granted there are parables and teachings that use metaphors to make a point that are not literal. However, the majority of the Word is. For example, Jonah was in the belly of a whale for three days and was regurgitated to bring a message to the people of Ninevah. Another example, Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a virgin - physically. She did not have sex with any man prior to the conception and birth of Christ. Jesus physically died and literally rose from the dead three days later, another example. Another, is that God created the Heavens and the Earth as it is outlined in the book of Genesis.
Saints, if the Bible is all allegory, myths, fables and mysterious half truths then we cannot count on any of it, including things we want and don't mind being literal. For example, God is love. Or, God is abounding in mercy. Or, God will hear you and answer. Or God is compassionate.
We have got to take God at His word and learn to spend time in it, meditate on it and allow the Holy Spirit to renew our minds through the study of it. Taking God at His Word allows us to embrace all the promises He has outlined in it that are literal! If we don't we live defeated and snared in the enemies lies. We run the risk of falling into the trap of false doctrines and teachings that accompany the end time.
Therefore, it is time to Word Up! Let's seek Jesus who is THE word and ask Him to send the Holy Spirit to help us. Make time for Him with His word that has been preserved over thousands of years for us to be blessed by. Dig in it. Study it. Di sect it. Ask God to speak to you through it; that it may guide you into all He has for you while living on earth. He will not disappoint and the Word will not lead astray.
There is only one book that can lead us into all blessing. There is only one book that can renew our mind by the power of the Holy Spirit. There is only one book that is alive and; even though scripted thousands of years ago, can speak into your present day circumstances. There is only one book that is the GPS for life leading you into all truth. And that's... the Word!
