We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word.
"And he said to me, 'Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.'" -Revelation 22:10
It is critical that we know God's word from beginning to end. Otherwise we will develop a half informed concept of God's nature and relationship with humanity. This book of books is to be read and known, not sealed up and hidden away. One of the earliest challenges for the church was dealing with the bogus, yet attractive, teaching of a "hidden knowledge," that was only available to a few enlightened people. That is known as gnosticism, and is a lie! Here, God's messenger is explicit that these words, this knowledge, should not be hidden. God's word is for all to see and know. May God give us understanding in the things that He shows us. May we be students of His word.
