The Bible The Word of God- the number one best-selling book of all times in the world…updated 09-28-23
The internet is full of ebooks, articles, paperback books, and all kinds of solutions for life. Why? Life gets to us and we want solutions. Additionally, everyone has written something these days about self-help, personal growth, happiness, peaceful living, and spirituality, including me. It is just too bad that we cannot package up something within life to take care of all of the life things that come our way, into one book.
AAh…without much contemplation, I can tell you there is one…you probably have one somewhere that you were given as a child.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3: 16
Why Do People Look For a Written Blueprint When There Is One Already
Maybe, all would welcome an eBook with a systematic blueprint for life from dust to dawn, and then back to the setting of the sun. It still would not cover all that is needed.
Of course, there would be no such plan for personal growth that would fit every person’s life or needs as we each are different. The book would be so huge and take decades to read, that something would still be missing and never finished. Nor would it be a cure because we do not know what our day or life will bring in the hours ahead.
There Is a Written Book That Has Existed For 2,000 Years
There is a written plan for living life well, living a life of peace, one of strength, and encouragement, and the words were written with you in mind. It is often called “The Book.” This Book – the Bible will teach you about God, Jesus, His love and so much more.
What is the need for the paragraphs above? It is just a reminder that no plan for life, living, life coaching, personal development, or self-help, fits all. However,
Psychologists even say that we each must seek our spiritual self, our soul, but we first must know who we are. Dr. Peter Shephred.
We must also be drawn to God…by Him.
More than likely you may be here to see this interruption of one simple plan to gain peace within your life. When writing encouragement, or how to help one’s personal problems and issues, no one can say…
“This is a cure for all your ills.” However, “The Book,” I have mentioned has a cure for all things, if you have faith and believe. It is the only book with a “cure.”
Each human life is often complicated, and it is a very serious thing not to see the magnitude of the need for compassion, sympathy, and concern. There is trouble everywhere you look, and people from all lifestyles are suffering.
The world has bad people and good people, there are sad individuals, and some are happy. However, many people have not learned one important solution to peace in their lives.
There Is One Book That Will Repair You, Strengthen you, and Give You Peace
I am going to make a very large statement in this post and tell you there is “ONE” solution for a settled peace within your life. No, not every individual in the world believes in, has faith, hope, or believes that the Son of God came into the world to give peace everlasting. Nor, do they believe in The Word of God, which is The Bible, therefore, this solution will not work for anyone until “they believe.”
If you do not believe the aforementioned, this will not help you. Only, will the Spirit of God come into your life and heal your needs when you “believe” in the Lord Jesus Christ. When you gain the knowledge and accept that he came in the flesh, died on the cross, and rose again.
This One Solution Will Help Your Life – but you must believe first…
This one solution that will work is so often rejected, laughed at, cursed, doubted, and refused. Why?
“It is hard to believe that people often reject the very thing that could be the answer to their needs. However, that does not make it less real.”
You can have the peace of knowing and talking to someone who knows all there is to know. Neither I, nor any other person living knows all of your needs, nor can help you like this Christ, who died for you.
As I Write This I Realize That I Have Been Abundantly Blessed
I am very blessed. I have known all of my life about Jesus, who died for me. That did not keep me from making large mistakes or needing to call upon his name often. I have made blunders myself in life, I have caused myself a lot of worries and fret because of a lack of maturity in the flesh as well as the spirit. Not everyone can admit their weaknesses, however, the truth about ourselves will set us free.
Yes, I have walked the dark valleys of disappointment and failure. However, through His infinite mercy, He has always saved me from disaster. We are not exempt from life things, and we never will be, but He is there to help us make it through those things that take our breath away.
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will NOT suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
Is God Real An eBook I wrote a few years ago. This eBook gives you how the world was made, the hemisphere, and all the particulars that ONLY an Almighty God and His wonders could accomplish.
The Bible is not just a book. It is the inspired Words of God. Read further, please…
The Bible is the Word of God, (as it is now often called) recorded in manuscripts and authored by those who were scholars and those who believed in God. It is known throughout the world that this is the book that outsells any other book. History concludes that more than 5 billion copies have been sold.
Annually, there are more than 100 million copies sold, and often referred to; as the Greatest Books on Earth.
When the Books were established: The Bible, the Word of God came into existence in the fifth century of the Christian era. The word Bible is used as the title of the Old and New Testaments. The name is derived from the Greek word for book (biblos).
These Books came into use in the following manner: In the synagogues, there were priests who were in charge of the manuscripts, and later in the churches they referred to them as “the Books.” Later in this history, the wordbook, or biblos, included the entire collection of books.
The Bible hence is known as The Books. It is common knowledge that the original Books were written in Hebrew; with two known books, that of Daniel and Ezra in Biblical Aramaic, and the first translation was in Greek. There are many versions of the Bible now, some written using different English words, but with the same meaning.
The Christian Old Testament contains 24 books of the original Hebrew Bible. The second part of the bible is referred to as the New Testament, which entails the birth of Jesus, His time on earth, the crucifixion, His resurrection, and His descent into Heaven.
Many skeptics within the world want to degrade, declassify, and refute that there was an original Bible or Book that was written by men scholars, apostles, and inspired by God.
These are the same people who question the existence of God Himself. Those speculations have been reputed repeatedly and this Book was written long ago.
The original Bible was written over a period of 1500 years, by 40 authors, and the Scriptures were made up of 66 books; 39 chapters in the Old Testament, and 27 in the New Testament.
There are many historians and archaeologists who have acknowledged studies cannot prove that the Bible is God’s written word, but they can and do substantiate the Bible’s historical accuracy.
The men who wrote it were the ones inspired by God and put it into words; God’s Words.
Jewish archaeologist, Nelson Glueck has stated that categorically no one discovery has ever controverted a Biblical reference. They have confirmed that within the Book of Acts, known as the Gospel of Luke; there are consistent names and places i.e. cities, kings, and governmental figures in important Biblical places that existed during this time. This includes 32 countries, 49 plus cities, and eight-plus islands, without any error.
*Some Bibles will give you this information at the front of the chapter for instance the Book of Acts, is titled: The Missionary Journeys, with an outline of the cities.
We again want to establish that faith is how we become rooted and grounded in the Word of God, and if you read the Word, God can and will manifest Himself to you through His Word.
Faith is the key to how anyone views the validity of God’s inspiring Word, Jesus’ virgin birth, and death on the cross. It is with prayer and studies that anyone can come to believe if they keep searching and ask the Father for His tender mercy and guidance.
The Words of God are real and provide adequate solutions to all problems in life. It will teach one how to worship, how to pray, how to treat your neighbor, how to love your enemies, how to raise your children, how to give thanks, and most of all, how to be saved. Then, there is even more that can be explained here.
While talking about the faith in your everyday life in the previous chapter; a person who has never realized the spiritual aspect of life; may not understand the faith, which the scriptures speak of. When you have asked forgiveness from God and accepted Him into your heart as your personal Savior, you will then know the faith that comes with salvation.
Real faith will help you believe what you cannot see, the part that you do not fully understand, and the courage to believe. Nevertheless, you feel it, you will know it, and you will then live it.
Faith is not always a simple thing for everyone. However, we use faith every day when we walk out the door to life. We have no guarantee will we walk back in that door. That is faith within itself.
