Presentation on theme: "THE WORD OF GOD The word “BIBLE” means “Book of Books”"— Presentation transcript:
1 THE WORD OF GOD The word “BIBLE” means “Book of Books” 66 books penned by God through 40 different men over 1,600 years and not one contradiction.The Word of God:Convicts - Heb. 12:4Converts - Rom. 10:17.Corrects - 2 Tim. 3:16.Cleanses - Psa. 119:9.Conceives - Matt. 4:5.Conquers - Eph. 6:17.Comforts - 1 Thess. 4:18.
2 THE CANONICITY OF THE BIBLE What does Canon mean?It comes from the word “kanon”, meaning a “rule” or a “critical standard”. “A fixed amount”; “A defined limit.”Canonization Is The Process Of Determining Which Writings “Measured Up” As Real Scripture.Some Bible versions have certain books that are not found in the KJV. Some versions use the 13 books of the Apocrapha. The word “Apocrapha” means “hidden author”.Canonization Was Only The Recognition Of A Book’s God-given Authority (By book I mean a certain book of the Bible such as Genesis, or Isaiah) --- Canonization did not give the book its authority. The authority of the Book was not determined by canonization, but by God. Canonicity is determined by God and discovered by man.The 66 original autographs that would make up the Bible as we know it today have never been in the same place at the same time. The Bible, as we have it today, has never existed in the “original”. The Bible was compiled long after the originals had been lost or destroyed.
3 THE WORD OF GOD God's Word is Very Important to God Psalm 138:2 ‑ I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.At the name of Jesus:1. We are saved2. We are Baptized3. Demons are cast out4. The sick are healed5. Dead are raised6. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confessIt is totally of God2 Timothy 3:16 ‑ All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:It is the only Source of truthIsaiah 8:20 ‑ To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
4 THE WORD OF GODGod wrote the Bible; Man just wrote what the Holy Spirit inspired them to writeHosea 8:12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.2 Peter 1:19‑21 ‑ We have also 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: 20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21) For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

15 THE WORD OF GOD Grade Reading levels of the New Bibles NKJV KJV NIV - 8.2The King James Bible has the lowest grade reading levelThis means that the new versions are not only harder to read but harder to memorize.
16 THE WORD OF GODSatanic Tricks of the Trade to get you to doubt the Word of GodThe Greek text says (Which one? There are 24 Greek texts)The original says (They have never seen an original)Erasmus was pro-catholic - This is a lie His text is band by the catholic church. They dumped him.You are worshiping a book - they worship scholarshipThe words of the KJV need updating - The enemy would rather change the word of God than use a dictionary. If we are so stupid because we use the King James Bible why do they need a bible that’s “easier to understand.”No major doctrine is changed - they are not taken away but they are attacked.The best text readsA better translation readsThere is only one book they are trying to get rid of and that is the King James Bible. They aren’t trying to get rid of a Greek text. Every new version always compares itself to the King James Bible. If they were trying to make easier and easier Bibles to read then they should be comparing it to the previous version that just came out.They all use the King James Version verse and chapter numbering system.
17 YOUR QUIET TIMESpending time reading your Bible is spending time with JesusJohn 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.What is Jesus' name?... The Word.Revelation 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.If you don't have a love relationship with Jesus, it’s because you don't love His word. You only love Jesus as much as you love the Word of God.
