“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” – Isaiah 60:1-5

LIGHT FOR NOW: Bible doctrine that does not begin from the beginning misses out on the framework of how it began.

We deduced that Genesis to Deuteronomy is the framework of doctrine. Moses is regarded as the father of doctrine because he laid the foundation and framework of doctrine. We also established that we have missed the framework of bible doctrine if we neglect reading the first five books of the bible. We cannot wholesomely comprehend bible doctrine outside Genesis to Deuteronomy; and if Genesis to Deuteronomy is removed from the bible, then the frame work of bible doctrine is removed, which in turn means that doctrine is removed. This is very important to note: In your reading of the first five books of the bible, never skip Genesis to begin from Exodus. If you do so, you have missed the foundation, context and framework of Exodus to Deuteronomy. We’ll explain this better; however, take note of what is stated below:

  • The context of what is in Deuteronomy is in Numbers.’
  • The context of what is in Numbers is in Leviticus.
  • The context of what is in Leviticus is in Exodus.
  • The context of what is in Exodus is in Genesis.
  • The context of what is in Exodus to Deuteronomy finds its framework and context in Genesis.
  • Also, in an advanced sense, the context of what is in Exodus to Malachi is framed in Genesis.
  • The context of Exodus down to Revelation is framed in Genesis.

The book of Genesis also referred to as the book of the beginning has within it the entire doctrine of the bible. All bible doctrine can be traced or tracked from Genesis. That is why it is necessary to begin your bible reading from the Genesis. Hallelujah!!!

INSTRUCTION: Begin at the beginning while reading.

PRAYER: I declare that I am devoted to a dutiful study of the word now more than ever, in Jesus Name.  Amen.

QUOTE: You must begin bible doctrine from where it began.
