THE LIGHT THAT SHINED OUT OF DARKNESS (6)


“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said let there be light and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light day and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day” Genesis 1:1-5


LIGHT FOR THE NOW: Revelation knowledge equals proper bible interpretation.


In our studies on this subject, we have established a vital fact of the bible being a documentation of men birthed by the inspiration of God. In other words, the inspiration of God on men led to the documentation of what is called the bible. The words of Peter in his epistles further brings more elucidation to this fact, it reads “we have a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

For the prophecy came not in old times by the will of man but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2Peter 1:19-21). Observe verse 20 and 21 closely: The term “is of any private interpretation” implies is of any private origin or source. In other words, Apostle explained that the scriptures did not come by any private origin or source, hence, why he explained further in verse 21 that holy men spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. In other words, the scriptures (the utterances of the prophets and the documentation of it in a book called the bible) never came by the will of men, but men were moved by the Holy Ghost. This thus buttresses the fact that men were inspired by God to do the documentation of the book called the bible. So, men wrote but in God’s inspiration.

Therefore, where proper bible interpretation is concerned, scrutiny of important details such as grammatical constructions, contextual analysis, historical occurrences, semantics and lexical definition of words and other necessary factors governing bible interpretation must not be ignored. Observing all these details where bible interpretation is concerned is what births revelation knowledge. In other words, revelation knowledge is proper bible interpretation. Revelation knowledge is not “this is what God told me in my dream or vision about this text of scripture”, no, no, no! Where revelation knowledge is concerned, proper bible interpretation is how to arrive at it. In fact, that is why the epistles are called the revelation of the scriptures. In other words, an understanding of the epistles which are the revelation of the Old Testament books of the bible is revelation knowledge, however birthed by proper bible interpretation. Hallelujah!!!

INSTRUCTION: Revelation knowledge is proper bible interpretation. Think about this.


PRAYER: Father, I declare that the eyes of my understanding are enlightened, in Jesus name, Amen!

QUOTE: Proper bible interpretation is what births revelation knowledge.
