What The Bible Manifests

Updated on January 27, 2016

Where Would Believers Be Without The Bible?

The Bible can manifest what people do not ordinarily perceive. If it were not for the existence of the Bible, many of us would really be lost. Just imagine what the world or life would be like without it. The Bible is a book of events about people during periods of time. However, there is one character that seems to be the focal point of it all. I will get to the character later. The Bible is a book that relies on the believing aspect of a person no matter who the person is, what the person has been through or where the person has come from. A person must believe that “the Bible is good for me.” Otherwise, it is vain.

By Believing In It Allows The Bible To Work And Be True

The Bible is a great book taken often for granted by those who profess to live by it but actually don’t. The Bible should only be taken seriously. It contains the vision of how the world and mankind was created. Do you believe that? Here is where the believing should start. Believing should start here because here is where the beginning of believing must begin. Let’s fast forward to ask, “Who else could have created me other than what the Bible says, was God?” “Who else could have formulated me?” If we believe what the Bible says then it works for us. If we don’t believe what it says then it won’t work. We who believe must understand that God from the creation of the first man and woman created us to live life according His Will and not our own. Many of us have developed a will of our own when we weren’t created to function with thatWe were created to believe in our Creator with an extension of belief that is the spirituality to God otherwise, we are incomplete.

Only Thru Jesus Does Old Life Become New


Opportunity To Be Redeemed

We fall short of pleasing Him and ourselves. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. But that verse is overcome by the fact that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to sacrifice Himself by dying to sin and rising again for righteousness and allowing us another chance to relinquish our sins and live again, through His Son. The new chance or change must be lived as Jesus can live if we allow Him to live in us everyday. At this point we must seek first, the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. These things were things of absolute need including a mate like Eve whom He gave Adam, the first man.

A Measure Of Faith


The Measure Of Faith Given

God also gave everyone, a measure of faith. Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. With faith in God all things are possible. Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. So all we need to do is seek God diligently and get rewarded.

The Human Manual

It may sound strange when one day, after you are twelve years old, you are told that there is a manual on how you are to live and that you must follow the instructions in order to live and avoid making too many mistakes, know how to love and be loved in return, to not be selfish and deceitful, honor father, mother and most of all understand who God is and know what His Son, Jesus Christ did for you. It also teaches that you have enough faith to believe through and therefore, succeed.

      It is encouraging that you express your faith in God and the Bible so boldly. The message is that "without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is . . ." Thank you for underscoring that.
