Capture All Scripture is given by inspiration of God

SCRIPTURE SUNDAY SERIES INTRODUCTION

Sadly, many professing Christian pastors and teachers today teach that the Old Testament is no longer important or relevant. However, Jesus often quoted from the Old Testament, and Scripture in the New Testament clearly shows us the importance of the Old Testament, as well:

“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” (1 Corinthians 10:1-12)

“For whatever was written aforetime were written for our learning that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.” (Romans 15:4 KJV)

All of Scripture is important:

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

Even before time, as we know it, began, God knew that mankind would choose to rebel against Him and sin, and He already had a plan to redeem mankind (Revelation 13:8) and to establish the only way to reconcile sinful man to Himself, a God who is completely loving, kind, and merciful, but above all, completely Holy and just. He planned to send His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, the second Person in the Trinity, into our evil, sin-filled world, to live the sinless, perfect life that we could never live, in order to take upon Himself the sins of all mankind and become our substitute; Jesus Christ took upon Himself God’s full wrath for all of our sins and guilt. The The Book of Genesis shows us that even in the most perfect of environments man still chose to sin.

Throughout the Old Testament we see just how depraved mankind is. We read about: Murder, rebellion, incest, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, rape, deceit, thievery, malice, lies, etc., etc. However, as depraved as all of mankind was and still is, he — or she — is not so depraved as to be unable to choose to receive God’s free gift of salvation through placing our faith and trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior after hearing or reading the truly good news of the Biblical gospel, as some sadly teach in Reformed Theology and Calvinism.

The Old Testament is also extremely important because: It traces the genealogy of Jesus Christ, foreshadows and prophesies the coming of Jesus Christ, and shows God’s patience with us, as well as His love, His complete holiness, and His hatred for sin. So much more could be said, but my time these days is very limited.

Now I present to you the thirty-fourth Book in God’s Holy Word –Nahum. I hope and pray that you will take some time throughout your week to (read through or) listen to another very important Book in God’s Holy Word.

UPDATE:

Lord willing, by the end of this week I am hoping to finish the next post in the series in which we are comparing the teachings that can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church to Scriptures in a Catholic New Testament  Bible. It is my prayer that God will not only show precious Catholics how their own teachings contradict the truth that can be found in His Word, but also it is my prayer that God will help Bible believing Christians see the errors in the teachings of Catholicism and fill them with a desire to pray for them and to share the good news of the Biblical gospel with them in gentleness and with respect.

UPDATE:

I have already started working on the next post in the series in which we are comparing the teachings that can be found in the Catechism Of The Catholic Church to a Catholic Bible in order to help precious Catholics see the errors in some of their teachings. The most important reason that I am writing this series is to show precious Catholics the good news of the Biblical gospel that can be found in God’s Word. It is my prayer that God will open their eyes so that many will see how some of the teachings of Catholicism contradict God’s Word and rob Jesus Christ of His glory and power that is clearly revealed in Scripture regarding all that He accomplished for us through His sinless life, His willingness to die in our place on the cross for our sins, His brutal death by crucifixion which was His “once for all” sacrifice that was sufficient to pay the debt for all of our sins in full, His burial, and by His glorious resurrection from the dead in bodily form three days later. Lord willing, I am hoping to have it completed within the next week or two.

“And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the LORD, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the LORD, after the ordinance of David king of Israel. And they sang together by course in, praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid.” Ezra 3:10,11

NOTE:

My sincere apologies to those of you who received a notice about a new post being published yesterday…I had it set to publish automatically thinking that I would have it finished by yesterday, but I kind of forgot about that and reverted it back to being a draft until I can completely finish it.
