Understanding The Bible

Hi K____,

It is rewarding to me to get e- mails like yours. I have been on the web since Oct. 1997, and I have heard from many WCG members over that period of time.

It is rare indeed to hear from someone who wants to come out from under the law of Moses.

The purpose of this site is help you to learn more about the truth of God’s Word. What will help you more than anything you can do is to download e- Sword through my site. e- Sword is the very best free Bible software that I am aware of. e- Sword has a Wigram’s type Concordance on a CD or downloadable from the internet. You will get the original words first, instead of some erroneous English translation, as you might very well get when you use just Strong’s or any other concordance. Wigram’s uses Strong’s numbers, but gives the original Greek or Hebrew first. This is an invaluable tool for learning more of the mind of God.

If you ever come to realize that the modern translations all have one denominational bias or another, you will demand to know what the original words in question are. Wigram’s (or e- Sword), will give you that original word. Then, right there before your eyes will be every instance where that original word was inspired by the spirit. Once you see how the spirit used that word, then the spirit itself will show you how that word is intended to be understood. You need no man to tell you that the word ‘aion’ has an end and a beginning and has nothing to do with eternity.

I would suggest that you first read How To Scripturally Study The Bible. This paper is the story of how I learned to use a Wigram’s Concordance. That knowledge was the beginning of an endless education for me. I began researching into every doctrine that I had ever been taught. What I have seen in the Word has no resemblance to the doctrines of any of the incorporated denominations.

Seven years ago I read a paper by Andrew Jukes entitled ‘The Mystery of The Kingdom’. In the footnotes on page 16 of that little book, Mr. Jukes pointed out that the prophecy of “weeping in Ramah,” which the New Testament writers apply to the slaying of the children by Herod, taken in context, could not possibly be forced to apply to the events surrounding Bethlehem two years after the birth of Christ. Ramah is about as far north and east of Jerusalem as Bethlehem is south and west of Jerusalem.

It turns out that most of the New Testament prophecies are given in just this way. When you check the context in the Old Testament, it appears that they have nothing in common. I came to see that there is a principal of understanding the scriptures that Christ had given to the apostles that every one of them applied in their writings. Not one of the apostles bothered to explain this principle, yet they each and every one demonstrated it in their writings. It is a mark of a man of God. Without understanding this principle you cannot understand the scriptures. Oh yes, you may understand the story being told, like the calming of the seas by Christ, but you will miss the point of that story!

I have written another paper on this principle entitled Biblical Examples Of Rightly Dividing The Word. If you read and understand that paper, you will know more about the Scriptures than all the TV evangelists combined. After reading that paper, you will see clearly what Paul meant when he said:

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Your ‘new door’ analogy is exactly what is taking place here. Christ is “knocking at your door.” You will now begin “supping with Him and He with you.”

Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

Let me hear from you again, to let me know how you are doing.

In His service,
