The bible is really inspired by God. Most people and religions believe that. Most believe at least the old testament is.
The bible has accurate Geological, archaeological and historical proof of past events. The bible also has prophetic accuracy of events to later occur. Scientists, using the scientific method, have validated the bible in the last 150 years. You can see proof of this yourself.
The book of Acts states that Ephesus is a port city. Visit Ephesus today and you will find the remnants of a port however the ocean is 4 miles to the west and more than 100 feet below the city.
There is something about the tithe that the Church of today has not seen?
Jesus spoke about the tithe and tied it to the ten commandments. But maybe not the way you have understood it.
The book of Malachi refers to the tithe under Old Testament thinking. The same book has a prophesy concerning a change to the Tithe that is for the New Testament Church.
If the tithe is different from what you assumed it was, then is it time to change?
There are rewards for those who obey God's words
The Manual for life!
The bible is referred to as the manual for life. It has a "begin here."
The bible does have a starting point for new and old believers alike.
An infant begins life with milk and then moves on to solid food.
We are referred to as infants and in need of milk (elementary teachings).
Lay this foundation as described in the Bible and you to will be able to withstand any storm.
No one will know the day or the hour but there are definite signs we will see just prior to this event?
Why is there so much emphasis put on a word (rapture) that does not appear in the old or new testament?
You can know what will be happening just prior to the rapture occurring. Jesus gave us insights so that we would not be caught off guard. Unbelievers will be caught off guard. For them it will be like a thief entering their home in the night.
He also said the wise will remain ready and will not be caught off guard!
There are five offices for the church spoken of in the New Testament.
Jesus said God in His wisdom is sending us Apostles and Prophets.
Since Jesus himself said this, are we looking at the church the way He does? He had a defined plan to establish and keep the Church. A church that the gates of hell could not prevail against.
Paul the Apostle refers to five main Offices for the Church. They are also called gifts to the Church.
Most believers think that God is merciful now, then when they die, the judgement comes?
Most unbelievers think that, if there is a God, He is judgmental now, but He will be merciful when they die.
Can believers go to hell? Can non-believers get into heaven?
The bible is actually clear about all of these questions. The answer may surprise you!
The second judgement has believers and non-believers there. The deciding factor as to who gets into heaven and who does not may surprise you.
The true Shephard
Jesus is the True Shepherd He laid down His life for the sheep.
Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. Each plays an irreplaceable role in the strengthening and maturing of the body of Christ.
In fact, two of the five were mentioned by Jesus. He indicated that they should play the primary role in the strengthening of the believers.
Without all five and the minor gifts (helps, healing,etc.)the Body of Christ will lack.
The bible is truly the word of God, and it says how to do this thing called church.
