The Main Message Of The Bible: The Major Reason The Bible Was Written Empty The Main Message Of The Bible: The Major Reason The Bible Was Written

Post by Adminkunlex on Mon Nov 11, 2019 9:15 pm

The Bible has several subjects but Jesus is not one of
them! He Himself is the Message of the entire Bible,
not one of its subjects.
“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye
have eternal life: and they are they which
testify of me.” John 5:39 KJV
The right rendering of the above verse from the
Greek translation should actually begin with “You”.
That is…
“You search the scriptures; for in them you think
you have eternal life: and they are they which
testify of me.”
What that means is that unlike what we may have
erroneously believed, Jesus wasn’t actually giving the
people of his day a command to “search the
scriptures” like the King James translation puts it in
that verse. He was rather telling them what they
were already doing - albeit wrongly.
The Message translation puts it in a much better way
- a way that pricks religious minds.
“you have your heads in your bibles constantly
because you think you’ll find eternal life there.
But you miss the forest for the trees. These
scriptures are all about me!”
Like many people today, the Jews put much effort in
the studying of the Scriptures. They actually devote
enough time for that. This act is never wrong in itself
and is worth emulating as the Scriptures encourages
us to study it diligently.
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a
workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly
dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
However in their study of the scriptures in search of
Eternal Life (the Salvation that God gives), they fail to
realize that this eternal life cannot be found on the
pages of a book (and that includes the Bible)
They failed to realize that the purpose the Bible was
given was to point men to Eternal Life and not to
give the Life itself.
The reason is because the Eternal Life they seek after
has been embodied in a Man, God’s own Son - Jesus.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his
only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
Whosoever believes in Him, not the Bible, shall have
everlasting life. Again,
“.….Thou hast given him power over all flesh,
that he should give eternal life to as many as
thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that
they might know thee the only true God, and
Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” John 17:2-3
KJV
This is why the scriptures were given in the first place
- to tell men about Him. Everything in the Bible points
to Him.
He is not one of those things you come across in the
Bible, He is the Mega Deal of the Book. Referring to
Him as one of the subjects of the Bible is an insult to
His person, He is its Message.
The apostle Philip did not mince words about His
personality when describing Him to his brother
Nathanael.
“Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, we
have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and
the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the
son of Joseph.” John 1:45 KJV
He is The Word in the word (John 1:1, 14-15), the
express Image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15,
Hebrews 1:3), the full expression of all that God was,
is and will ever be. He (not just the Bible), is God’s
explanation of Himself (His Character, actions and
words) to mankind.
In knowing Him, we have known and gotten all that
God wants us to know and have. This is why we are
instructed to focus our whole attention on Him.
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our
faith….” Hebrews 12:2 KJV
He is the central message of all the Books of the
Bible. Let us make a decision to keep our eyes on
Him and nothing else.
He is all that God wants us to know, not Moses, not
Elijah and certainly not Abraham. Everyone of those
men were relevant enough to have their names
engraved in the scriptures because of the Message of
Christ which they believed and conveyed to their
generations. Aside from that, there is nothing so
special about them.
In your study of the scriptures, in your search for
eternal life, in your understanding of God, make a
decision to see no man but Jesus. For everything in
the Bible is about Him.
Again I say, it is all about Him and nothing else! Go
tell someone.
You are much loved
(Further reading: Deutronomy 18:15, 18. Ezekiel 34:23.
Acts 3:22, 7:37)
