Today, whether there is a need for other authentic holy writings with the Bible is considered.  One of the most important ways the Holy Spirit is imparted and received is by prayerful study of the Scriptures, and the anointing from GOD is not only by breathing from the Savior, by falling as at Pentecost, or laying on of hands.  The Scriptures have not been provided for amusement and entertainment, argument and debate, or intellectual competition and philosophizing.  They supply frameworks for spiritual awareness and increase that include covenants, family, godly government, judgments, divine law, parables, proverbs, salvation, and eternal life.  The fighter at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Dan” (Level 4 with 3,089 points, a member since March 20, 2015) posted the following:

 

If all scripture is god-breathed, why doesn’t the bible contain all scripture, and why don’t you search for extra-biblical scripture?

I mean if ALL scripture is god breathed, I don’t understand how anyone could be satisfied with just the bible when it does not contain everything ever said or dictated by god. What about the book of Enoch? what about the gospel of mary? what about lilith? What about the dead sea scrolls? If ALL scripture is from god and is good for “teaching” like 2nd Tim 3:16 says, shouldn’t the bible contain ALL scripture? I mean if you don’t care about the non-biblical gospels, then your faith is but in the ancient self-righteous priests who decided (based on their own values, not god’s will) what went into the bible and what didn’t. Your faith is not in your god if the ideas of ancient people are more important to you than the words of god himself.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.  (Revelation 22:  16-20, King James Version, KJV)

“Dan”, salvation turns on how much faith more than on how much knowledge and scripture, for where there is faith prophecy, signs, and tokens from GOD are more than enough.  Mature Christian believers generally agree that the holy writings are a special appearance of spirit substance (we say, breath, life essence, word) from the makeup of GOD.  Divinity is revealed (i.e., made knowable, known, and “visible”) through use of a form or incarnation recognizable to created beings and living creatures.  The living must engage divinity by using their own inborn deposits of spirit, rather than by relying upon finite and limited tools such as emotion, intellect, logic, philosophy, carnal reason, and science.  Thus, inseparable aspects of divinity must be in place that include faith, holiness, joy, longsuffering, meekness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  The permanence and unchanging nature of sacred knowledge, sacred events (we say, miracles), sacred practice (we say, sacraments), experiences of godly presence, and diverse sacred operations are rarely “one-time” events because, in fact, they are continuous, eternal, immutable, and unchanging.  The sufficiency of divine grace establishes their duration and their standing as having authority and power from the imparted, indwelling Spirit.  Those sinners who require their own experience of what was granted to those who traveled with Moses (manna, truth, and water from the rock) are answered through the Holy Ghost.  Through their consciousness and the correct operations of their self-will, every believer will be an “eye-witness” to the star over Bethlehem, the train of animals that entered the ark, and the conclusion of the shepherd boy’s battle against Goliath.  Consider again the following:

(1.)  John 3:  11-12, King James Version (KJV):  11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.  12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

(2.)  Matthew 13:  10-16, KJV:  10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?  11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.  12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance:  but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.  13 Therefore speak I to them in parables:  because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.  14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:  15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.  16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see:  and your ears, for they hear.

(3.)  Matthew 17:  14-21, KJV:  14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,  15 Lord, have mercy on my son:  for he is lunatick, and sore vexed:  for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.  16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.  17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.  18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him:  and the child was cured from that very hour.  19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?  20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief:  for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.  21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (4.)  Romans 8:  5-10, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.  10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
