Today, focus is on why hallowed books and holy writings should be used when answering questions that require sacred knowledge.  Properly reading the Scriptures “stirs up the gift” of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD that has been imparted to indwell a believer.  Included are inseparable aspects for relationship with the Creator such as awe (also called “fear of the Lord” and “reverence”), gratitude, faith, holiness, humility, joy, longsuffering, righteousness, purity, trust, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  One of the many fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” who use the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

How dumb to say “Just because something is written in a book…”?

But just because he wrote that doesn’t make it true either !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And LOGICALLY just because something is written in a book doesn’t make it false.

Is this the stupidest person in the last 6 monthsf

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.  And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.  And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.  And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam.  And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up:  And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands:  and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground.  Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law:  and the people stood in their place.  So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.  And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.  Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared:  for this day is holy unto our Lord:  neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.  (Nehemiah 8:  1-10, King James Version, KJV)

“Anonymous”, spiritual questions require spiritual answers that come from spiritual sources.  In the same way disputes among professional athletes in the NFL (National Football League) regarding assessment of penalties during game play, player eligibilities, and salary limits are resolved by referring to information compiled within contracts, rule books, and other recorded documents, matters of spiritual commitment, sound doctrine, faith, and spiritual practice (we say, sacraments) are resolved among mature Christian believers by applying the sacred knowledge (rather than secular data) contained within the holy writings.  Even for educated men and women who are accomplished at using the finite tools of intellect, logic, mathematics, philosophy and science, the Bible is very challenging.  Correct reading of the Scriptures is a sacred process that requires participation of the Spirit of GOD.  The reader must have holy boldness (i.e., certainty and trust in GOD that operate like confidence and courage), discernment (using ones own spirit content to recognize and respond to spirit matter from the makeup of divinity as it appears within events, oneself, other persons, prophesies, purposes, etc.), and meekness (be “coach-able” and “teach-able” by the Holy Spirit; readiness to yield to the promptings of the Spirit).  Upon the earth, the heart and mind of created beings and living creatures are to operate as receptacles and vessels of divine substance.  Even so, it is necessary to preserve special truths by recording and writing them down (for example, like the Ten Commandments, on tables of stone, written by the finger of GOD).  Once properly recorded, law, examples and illustrations, principles and processes can be circulated, and can become shared with others, even those of other regions and time eras.  Consider again how some of this is stated using language from the Bible:

(1.)  John 7:  14-18, King James Version (KJV):  14 Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.  15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?  16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.  17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.  18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory:  but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

(2.)  2nd Timothy 3:  16-17, KJV:  16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

(3.)  Isaiah 8:  20, KJV:  20 To the law and to the testimony:  if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Ecclesiastes 12:  9-14, KJV:  9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.  10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words:  and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.  11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.  12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished:  of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.  13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:  Fear God, and keep his commandments:  for this is the whole duty of man.  14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
