2 Peter 1:16-21
For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
In this message we cover our statement: We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired,
it is the perfect treasure of heavenly instruction
it has God for its Author. Salvation is its end!
Greetings and welcome! This is our worship service for 9-10-23. Today we begin a new series in the book of Philippians with the reason for Paul's writings and the importance of love. Thanks for joining us!
There is power in the Word of God. It was not contrived by men nor is it the result of man's impulse, will, or desires. It was inspired by God and written by men who were moved, influenced, and carried along by the Spirit. The Bible is true, accurate, and Holy. The scriptures can make one wise unto salvation. They are a constant source of power in this dark world and in the dark heart until the daylight dawns and the Morning Star returns!
The Word of God is the Spirit-inspired message to which the church must submit for all its spiritual needs. In this text, Paul explains to Timothy 1) What the Word is, 2) What the Word does, and 3) How the Word works.
How do we know that the books we have in Scripture are actually Scripture? Are there other writings that might potentially be considered Scripture? Why do we reject writings like the Apocrypha or the Book of Mormon as "non-canonical"? Here Pastor Jesse gives an overview of the concept of the canonicity of Scripture. He walks us through what "canon" really means, as well as how the canon of Scripture was determined, discovered, and closed. In this message, you'll grow in your understanding of canonicity - and be encouraged in your confidence in the Bible.
What does salvation cost us? To whom is salvation available? Can I do something to earn God's favor? Listen to this message in order to understand the answers to these important questions according to the Scriptures.
Upon what may we found proper confidence in God's Word and about God's church? Psalm 93 looks forward to the opening portion of morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these five verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that for confidence in God's Word and about His church, we should consider God Himself.
This lesson is part of a Sunday school series providing an overview of systematic theology. This lesson address the inspiration of the Scriptures, inerrancy, and what Jesus thought about the trustworthiness of the Bible.
