“And that from a child, thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” 2 Timothy 3:15
LIGHT FOR NOW: If it is not written, then it is not needful.
Our salvation can only be through faith in Christ. For you to be saved, you have to believe in the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary. The word, ‘doctrine’ means ‘explanation’ or ‘teachings’. It is only the scriptures that help to explain or teach about salvation. Everything written in the scriptures is inspired by God.
The subject of salvation is centered on the person of Jesus. The word, ‘reproof’ as seen in 2 Timothy 3:16 means ‘evidence.’ The scriptures were given for evidence. If it is not written, then it is not needful. Believers are not expected to live by assumptions, feelings nor hearsays. Feelings do not change any situation. When you walk into a dark room, you don’t feel for light to turn on, rather, you locate the switch and turn on the light.
Salvation is not an assumption neither is it a feeling. Those utterances about JESUS made faith available in the Old Testament. The message of Moses and the prophets carry only one person which is Jesus and that was to make faith available. Prophet Isaiah explained everything about Jesus’ coming (Isaiah9:2-7) and His suffering and death (Isaiah 53:2-6).
What builds your spiritual life is not prophecy but the word of eternal life. Any prophecy that is not based on the Word of God is no prophecy but a statement to induce fear. A deeper understanding of your salvation is what brings the glory. When you understand the subject of salvation, the veil is removed from you. There is a life before the cross and a life after the cross. Life before the cross is the life of Adam where man was still subject to sin and could not access God. But life after the cross, man dominates and reigns and has free access to God.
INSTRUCTION: Stay in Knowledge.
PRAYER: I am what the Word says I am, in JESUS name.
QUOTE: A deeper understanding of your salvation is what gives you a glorious life.
