NO desire for sophistication

 

Matthew 18:3

King James Version

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


The true born again, has no desire for sophistication.

We like simple.

Just Scripture.

To the believer, Scripture is easy to understand.

SPIRIT makes it so.

We rely totally on Scripture.

For its many merits.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.


We have no desire for philosophy.

No desire to be a scholar.

We turn to SCRIPTURE.

We listen to SPIRIT.

The WORD of GOD suffices.

Answers all the questions we present.

Fills our heart with the answers.

Teaches us everything about GOD.

Teaches us about our destiny.

Explains to us the world's ways.

Instructs us what work to do.

Leads us to JESUS.

Lights our path.

Saves us.


What other education would we need?

All we've learned in the past, have been set aside.

They must conform to Scripture.

If they do not serve the WORD of GOD, we set it aside.

The WORD of GOD is JESUS.

John 1:1

King James Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, 

and the Word was with God, 

and the Word was God.


John 1:14

King James Version

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.


Revelation 19:11-13

King James Version

11 And I saw heaven opened, 

and behold a white horse; 

and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, 

and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, 

and on his head were many crowns; 

and he had a name written, 

that no man knew, 

but he himself.

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.


If the WORD of GOD is the Bible, and JESUS is the WORD of GOD, then JESUS is the BIBLE.

Believing in JESUS means, we believe in the Bible.

Believing in the Bible means, we believe in JESUS.

As born again, we serve Him alone.

That's why we urge believers to LIVE by the BIBLE.

It holds all of GOD's TRUTH.

And yes, JESUS loves children.

And we love Him, too.

Matthew 19:14

King James Version

14 But Jesus said, 

Suffer little children, 

and forbid them not, 

to come unto me: 

for of such is the kingdom of heaven.


That's why we remain childlike with the LORD.

Forever obedient to His will.

PEACE reigns in our heart.
