Hello fellow readers, I welcome you to today’s blog post. Today I present you with a challenge. What’s the challenge? The Challenge is over the next year, I will present you with you the Top Bible Headlines For You Today…. Please allow me to explain. I want to present you with the top news headlines according to the Bible. Now it must be understood, that although I present you, my readers with the challenge, I also present myself with the same challenge. There is just minor differences between myself as the writer and you the reader. What I’m truly doing is examining myself daily.
The reason I have to challenge myself is based on the fact that I will be moving into a new apartment in the next week or so. I will living by myself for the first time. I think it’s VERY important to stay connected to God. Why would I say such a thing? I say this is because I have most recently came into the truth about God about a year and half ago. Some friends of mine brought me to a real Christ filled Church. This church is in the United States of America. I’m Canadian… The first thought some of my readers may have is, “if your Canadian why on earth would you ever travel to the U.S.just to go church? The reason is simple, I was tired, I was tired of falling a asleep in church. Your next question to ask me would be how would ever fall asleep in Church? The
reason is because, the Canadian ministers I heard during service had very little zeal for God. There is no Holy Spirit working within the church if members and attendees sleep in the pews during the presentation of a sermon. I traveled to the church in the U.S. because the church in which I attend is God, centered, Holy Spirit centered, and Jesus centered… Most dead churches today don’t even have the right foundation to stand on. The reason is because the majority of the dead churches simply preach about God’s love. It’s a message that makes the people in the pews feel good. If say you’re a Christian but only smile during a church service, leave that church right away, the reason why is because that church is dead dead… Now it should be understood this challenge that I present you with isn’t just another test. It is not a challenge that says you should read the bible just for 365 days. There is too many books that refer to that. To me, reading the Bible for a year is good however if you don’t keep reading on day 366,367,368,369 and 370 than and only than will you produce good fruit. On a personal level it’s not about the numbers like 365, it’s about constant growth in the Word. It’s about doing my part in fulfilling the great commission. “Go preach the gospel into all the world.”
The object of the Bible is so God can commune with you. It’s a daily task, not just a new year’s resolution. This is a challenge that I take seriously. It’s time that I get down to business with God. We all should. The real reason to challenge me from a personal level is not just about myself. I also want you the readers to come along with me during this journey. I simply want to be used of God in a way that pleases him. In all His Ways. Now this is where I become hated from men and women alike. The reason why is because I WILL NOT co-
comprise the study of the Bible, I will not sugar coat His Word so that I may receive praise from men, I want to receive praise from God. I will speak truth, because I wish to walk in all truth. The reason behind this is because I love you all too well to lie to you about the Word of God.If
right now you are scratching your head wondering just what am I talking about. I’m talking about the person who calls himself I AM WHO I AM.
When God came to Moses in the form of a burning bush, he didn’t say I come in the name of Catholicism, Pentecostal Baptists, Jehovah Witness or a Ladder Day Saint..
Exodus 3:13-15King James Version (KJV)
13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.God told Moses I AM WHO I AM. I will tell you why the Lord did not come in the name of Catholicism or in the name of any other religion is simply because the Word of God was not written on the ideas of men.
Have I got your attention now? Have I got you stirred up? Good, what gives me the audacity to be so BOLD? I am Bold because the Word of God says different than men.
2 Peter 1:20-21King James Version (KJV)
20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Some of you readers may say that how can I claim that if in this day and age, there are so many interpretations of the Bible? How do I know which one to read? Which Bible is correct? The way to find out if the Bible you’re reading is correct is simple, check the author of the book. Meaning this, in the days of King James, he bought together 70 men filled with the Holy Spirit and compared one writing to another. In addition to that there are 40 authors of the Bible whereas in terms of the Greeks there claims to be only one, his name would be Homer.
One man in Greece wrote an entire religion in existence without any measure of reproof? How is this possible? Whereas when referring back to scriptural text.
Each of the writing came back the same. There was no changes. No indeed, the changes happen because of men. I believe faulty teaching began when the Early Church was no more. From that time men have caused to write the Bible according to their own opinions and commentaries.
One of the reasons, I won’t pull punches when it comes to giving you absolute truth when it relates to the Bible is because I don’t want to displease God. Even more so, I don’t want to be cursed. How would I be cursed you say? This is how.
Galatians 1:8-9King James Version (KJV)
8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. If you confused by these words, than please allow me to speak to you in a different way, so that you begin to understand how important it is to tell the truth in all things. I refer you to the career of journalism.
I Now I have been a journalist for more than ten years. I have had the honor to have some very good professors. They taught how to speak journalism, they taught me how to write journalism. What does it mean to write journalism? As a journalist it is very important to speak truth. The way you can speak truth in journalism is creating a fair and balanced piece that presents the readers of newspapers with an honest perceptive. How can journalism be trusted? There is a way that a journalist’s writing can be trusted. The way that can happen is for the writer in question to present both sides of the story also having more than three sources regarding a story. This way you can reproof the article written. In the same way the Bible when written by Holy Men of God can stand the test of time.. It should be clear that God said in His Word that He changes NOT, it’s only men that do the changing.
Malachi 3:6King James Version (KJV)
6 For I am the Lord, I change not.
That’s why it’s important to distinguish between a Holy Ghost Filled Bible versus a Man written Bible. That’s how you find complete truth, both in the Bible and also in journalism. If you declare that you stand for Christ, than I urge to join me on this journey of knowing scriptures in reality.
So I vow to my readers to present you with all truth, a daily story that relates to the topics of the Bible and applying the teaching to everyday life. However don’t just join for the task of 365 days but join me in faith continually… If you start a race, I encourage to finish it….
