TEXT: Psalm 19:7-14
The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.
Key verse: Revelation 22:7
Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keep the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
From our key verse the Lord Jesus has blessed all that follow the sayings of the prophecy of the word of God. The holy Bible is the only book of repute because no other book is qualified to be called holy. This is for the definite fact that no religion is comparable to Christianity. Indeed Christianity is superior to every other religion on earth.
All other religions are the works of Satan. In this regard, let no one divert your attention to any other thing other than what is written in this book, because there is none else. This is the Holy Bible, King James Version (preferred), which has 66 books; 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament.
The apocrypha writings which other people brought up are not approved by God. God did not approve them because they were not written by His inspiration, yet carnal religious men added these unapproved writings to their own denominational Bibles to their hurt, as seen in Catholicism. Will God almighty do all this work of eternal life, document it like this, and not protect His own pure Word?
Can Jesus come down from heaven and speak the words of eternal life to the people and not preserve His own words? He said, “the words that I speak to you they are spirit and life.” Since He asked them to write them in a book, He will definitely watch over His own words. Knowing that Satan would always want to tamper with the pure Word of God, God has protected the holy Bible from defilement.
For this reason, all those apocrypha books which you may hear of are not part of the word of God. They are the philosophical writings of men who are the agents of Satan. God led the Jewish scribes who produced the canon of the Old Testament and the early Church fathers who completed the canon of the New Testament to reject these apocrypha writings.
Thought for the day: As you read and obey the Bible, you shall be a wise person
Song for the day: Forever O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven…..
Bible reading for the day: 1 Samuel 4-6; Luke 12:35-59
