The Bible is Greater
The Bible is Greater
The Bible is great!
66 books encompass the bible. There are 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. 66 books by 40 different authors composed over a very long period of time. When you consider the journey and the composition of the Bible it is clearly a divine miracle. That is right it is a miracle unto itself. It is not simply a book as some would suggest as it is God inspired. It has to be. It is indeed the greatest book ever written and is clearly God inspired. It inspires hope. It covers more than several thousand years. Yet, the chapters, the verses and the messages all are obviously related, intertwined and linked together. All linked together. Can you imagine and contemplate that they are all linked together and the context of what that indeed means? It is indeed God inspired and directed. So completely compelling. It is a prognosticator like no other. It really is. The results speak for themselves. They clearly do. Is there any other book in history like the good book? I really don't think that there is. Not really even close. No where near. It is compiled over many centuries yet each and every book build on each other. That can only be a God thing. The prophesy is so very amazing. There simply is nothing like God's word absolutely nothing. There is nothing greater than God's word. Nothing even compares to it. Nothing gives us such incredible examples. It is the greatest book ever written. It is not just a book it is THE book. It is so very powerful. Jesus says Himself many times Have you not read? Nothing gives us such inspiration. Nothing gives us such teachings and life lessons. Nothing gives us such instruction. Nothing gives us such hope and redemption. It is a lesson like no other. It truly is and certainly especially when you consider the context. He chooses mercy over judgment for all of us. Starting with Genesis and going all the way through to Revelation God gives us His plan for us and shows us His love and His mercy. His mercy is unending. He provides a Savior and He alone is the answer for sin. The history is incredible. It is our life manual. It is completely great. It is so very compelling. The prophesy is indeed incredible. It is perhaps one of God's greatest gifts to all of us. It is so very important to our salvation. It is indeed a treasure.
The bible has been banned and burned. It has been outlawed, banished and ridiculed. It has been taken out of our schools and in many cases it has been deemed as politically incorrect. Scotland alone made it illegal to even possess a bible for 150 years. ( early 1400's to mid 1500's ). Still the Bible has withstood it all and it is with us always. It will always be with us. Just like our Lord it is always there and just like our Lord it gives us hope. Today's world needs the Bible and it's teachings probably more than any other time in the history of the world. The world is so very lost. Just look around or turn on the news. The Bible shows us how God wants us to treat each other and it's greatest message is to love one another. It is the greatest teaching tool of all time and Jesus is the greatest teacher of all time. You and I will be long gone and forgotten and they will still be reading the Bible and they will still be talking about Jesus. They always will. Jesus tells us that " My words will never fade away." They never do. The Bible has been translated more than any other book in the world. From Hebrew to Latin to English. It has lasted generation after generation. There are many versions of the Bible. It does not claim to be a science, history or medical book yet all of the science, history and medicine in the Bible is and has been proven true. Bible prophesy is amazing. Jesus says, "My words will never fade away" and they never do. You will find the ultimate encouragement through God's word ... The Bible. What an incredible message and what an incredible blessing. We cannot take it for granted. So take a ride on Route 66. It is a journey that you will both need and enjoy. It is a journey you will indeed love. It is the greatest journey of all. There is nothing greater than God's word.
The Bible is indeed our life manual and Jesus Christ is indeed the most incredible role model, teacher, example and Savior that ever exists. Everything He does is done out of love. Remember Him in all that you do and remember His never ending love for you. After all, it is His word and it saves each of us. He loves us and He teaches us. This is a fantastic acronym. It really is so true. The Bible is the:
Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth
It truly is just that.
God bless you always.
