Praise the Name of Jesus Christ,
Firstly I want to make it a point to always teach Bible Truth in every aspect of our Ministry. Whether it be in teaching in a worship service, or online, or by way of blogging or the printed page, our goal is to present to the world God’s Word without apology and without wavering any from what is written on the pages of God’s Word the bible. So many today are writing about things they have been taugh, and never take the time to rightly divide the Word of Truth. ( 2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV) Be diligent(Study) to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. What does it mean to a worker or workman. This word worker or workman comes from the greek word Ergates which is as a laborer 10 times and as a worker or workman 6 times. This means we must labor in rightly dividing the Word of Truth. You cannot take man;s word for it you must laborer in God’s Word or rightly divide the Word of Truth.
What does it mean to rightly divide. This thought or statement comes from the greek word Orthoyomeo which means to disect or expound correctly the divine message. To disect the truth and find the truth on the pages of God’s Word and not man written handbooks is how we rightly divide the Word of Truth. I get disgusted by so many who write studies on the internet who need to go get back in a baby craddle and take the milk bottle and mature before they teach God’s Word. (Heb 5:12 NKJV) For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. The Apostle Paul wrote by inspiration from God concerning this generation in (1 Timothy 4:3-4NKJV) 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. And the wisest man alive King Solomon wrote by Inspiration (Proverbs 15:14NKJV) The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, But the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.
The Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians Chapter 12 is writing about an experience that he has had in the Lord. As we examine this experience we will see it was not an out of body experience. Paul was not telling about what he saw as he was stoned by the jews from Antioch and Iconium who had stones Paul supposing he was dead (Acts 14: 19) about an out of body experience he had but was speaking prophetically of a time in the future when The third Heaven or as Paul called it Paradise would be established on this earth. For those of you who still believe that we go to Heaven at death or that Heaven will be our eternal home I am praying God will increase your knowledge in His Word. The only people who will be removed from this earth are the wicked. (Proverbs 10:30 NKJV) The righteous will never be removed, But the wicked will not inhabit the earth. All who believe that the earth which is to say the planet earth will be destoryed cannot find this teaching in their bibles. (Ecclesiastes 1:4NKJV) One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever. And also (Psalms 115:16NKJV) The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s;But the earth He has given to the children of men.
