PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
3rd August, 2023.
Topic: OVERTHROWN FAITH… part 2
Text: 2 Timothy 2:15.
15: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
In part 1 I did promise to teach how to identify false teachings. Permit me to say, first of all that the popularity of a preacher does not validate what he or she preaches. When it comes to the word of God there is nothing like ‘ he is an authority ‘. A man can be an authority in other fields not in the study of scriptures, there is nothing like that, Holy Spirit is the authority.
As we wait on the Lord in the course of studying the Bible the Holy Spirit gives us inspiration, we have interpretation that is applicable to our daily living.
Our text talks about studying to make yourself approved unto God, this is like saying study to the point that your instructor, the person that will assess what you study either by examination or interrogation can approve that you pass. In our case is God, he is the one who passes us not pastor, preachers or people.
Can I shock? Majority can be wrong, in fact, in the things of God majority are wrong. How do I know?
Exodus 23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.
God does not operate the system of democracy rather theocracy (a system of governance by God), everyone who desires to know more of him goes for theology (study about God).
HOW TO STUDY?
* Reading the bible book by book and chapter after chapter.
* Search for the background information about the chapter you study, you can use Google.
* Meditate and wait on the Holy Spirit for inspiration (interpretation).
* Check the mood the speaker in the passage you read.
* Read from other versions.
* Read what was said before and after.
* Apply what you read to your life.
If you go through this guidelines, you will be able to detect strange teachings, don’t be deceived by the number of people carried away by false teachings, stand for the truth, don’t live your live in error. God bless you.
* Give me the understand of your word Lord in Jesus name.
