FOR I TESTIFY TO EVERYONE that Scripture is God-breathed. I heard a sermon where the preacher said, “Jesus is greater than the Bible”. Huh? Paul declares, “All Scripture is God-breathed” 2 Timothy 3:16 I’m not sure you realize this, but he was referring to the OT; the NT was being formed.
The apostles used the OT Scriptures to preach Jesus. The Word testifies to itself that its very words have been uttered by God. It’s not a collection of stories for your amusement. It’s God’s authority for doctrine, reproof, correction and training in righteousness. Saying Jesus is greater than His Word is like me telling my children, “Dad is greater than what he says!” Double Huh? How does that make any sense? Craziness abounds.
It is exceptionally clear that God and the apostles took His Word seriously, “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
Revelation 22:18-19 Sounds dangerously clear. Yet, its Satan’s original lie that is still deceiving people, “Did God REALLY say?” Yes He did. He REALLY said and He still REALLY says. If the church you’re in or the preacher you give your ear to undermines the authority of ANY Scripture, OT or NT, FLEE! There is a famine of God’s true Word. We are living in perilous, deceptive days. Hold fast to His Word and do not deny His name. Revelation 3:8 #runyourrace
