This is a way to study the Bible

Updated on January 26, 2013

Let the Bible itself explain what it means

What a mix of religions

It is easy to be confused, fooled, angry and even indifferent to religion. How to know what is right and what is wrong? God is the same - one God the Creator. So why are there so many different religions?

They CANNOT all be right! The truth can only be ONE. Either the world is coming to an end in flaming fire or it is going to be a paradise as others say. Either people can be saved because of the love of God or they cannot, they will perish. Both cannot be right. So where to start?

The questions I had demanded an answer. I have looked into many religions. Read the Koran, attended meetings with the Pentacosters, Salvation army, Maranatha, Protestantism and listened to Jehowah's witnesses at my doorstep.So how did I finally get answers that I could accept and find true and making sence? - I found them all in the Bible

I had so many questions. here are some examples:

If God is so all mighty, why is the world and humans on it suffering so much? He does not care at all? What has he done to help us and guide us?

What happens when we die? Are we transferred to another life or are we just gone? Will we get life back again in the future? Why do we die at all when the body is so fantastic and heal itself?

What is the future regarding earth? Will it blow up in a major nuclear catastrophe world war three? Will the globe we call Tellus remain occupied? Will we live here and what are the terms to manage?

I found satisfying answers to all of them in the Bible

The answers I found in the Bible

One really good suggestion is to read the cross references in the Bible. There are many Bible translations with foot notes, margin notes or index added. Follow the clues and find out more about one subject! This has helped me so much to understand the Bible.

About my own personal questions:

Question one:If God is so all mighty, why is the world and humans on it suffering so much? He does not care at all? What has he done to help us and guide us?

The Bible explains: GOD IS NOT THE ONE RULING THE EARTH NOW - 1 john 5:19 We know that we are God’s children, and that the whole world lies under the power of the evil one.Revelation 12 that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

GOD HAS ALREADY TAKEN ACTION TO HELP US! -JOHN 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. JOHN 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.1timothy 2:6 who gave himself a ransom for all .

Question two: What happens when we die? Are we transferred to another life or are we just gone? Will we get life back again in the future? Why do we die at all when the body is so fantastic and heal itself?

We have all heard how they say at a funeral: You are dust and to dust you will go back. That is exactly what the Bible teach too. Humans were made from material on earth and when we die, we eventually become soil again. See this hub about human bodies

The Bible does no where teach that any spirit or invisible part of us live on. When we die we just are dead, period. (Ezekiel 18:4) . . .. The soul that is sinning—it itself will die. But we have a hope of a resurrection. The Apostle Paul said: Acts 24:15 - I have a hope in God—a hope that they themselves also accept—that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.

Question three: What is the future regarding earth? Will it blow up in a major nuclear catastrophe world war three? Will the globe we call Tellus remain occupied? Will we live here and what are the terms to manage?

WE NOW LIVE IN THE LAST DAYS OF SUFFERING! 2timothy 3:1 "Godlessness in the Last Days" "You must understand this, that in the last days distressing times will come." Then the Bible tells us the future: Revelation 21:3,4 -And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘See, the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe every tear from their eyes. Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away.’

This is only the top of the surface of all I have found. I hope that you like these three answers.
