The Secret to Understanding the BiblePosted by Vic on Sep 6, 2010 in God, Spirituality | 0 comments
What is the secret to understand the Bible – the Holy Scriptures? To understand the words of God isn’t a secret. It is clearly written in the pages of the Bible. It is revealed by God to His people, closer enough to be reached by anyone. To understand the Bible, one doesn’t need to be a genius or to be a very smart person. He simply needs to have faith that works through love. This is what a person will need to have wisdom and understanding that will enable him to digest the words of God. To have wisdom, we need to have fear of the Lord. To have understanding, we need to keep on obeying Him and departing from evil.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. – Psalm 111:10 (NIV)
Anyone who continues wickedness and evil works can never relate and understand the Bible. This kind of people cannot attain heavenly wisdom, no matter how they are humanly intelligent. This is because it is God Himself, who decides and will, whom He will pour out His divine words and thoughts. He gives this knowledge and understanding to the people who delight in His corrections and follow His will.
If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. – Proverbs 1:23 (NIV)
The Bible, itself, tells how to understand its contexts. We just need to practice what we read. This is why the persons who are kind, humble and loving from the beginning, are the ones who can quickly understand the teachings in the Holy Scriptures.
