Why did God give us the scriptures of the Bible?

Some people see the Bible as a moral guide to life, others see it as merely a "religious" book that continuously shows up on the best seller list.

Was that God's plan, to produce a bestseller?

"My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body." Proverbs 4:20-23

The very words that God speaks are life to our souls. Then why is God's word so important to us? Without the word of God we would not know how to have eternal life.

This life is given to those who find the words of God. How can we find the words of God, and how can we find life through them?

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning...In him was life, and that life was the light of men." John 1:1-4

Who is this verse speaking about? "The true light, that gives light to every man was coming into the world." v. 9

Who came into the world to give us life, as the light of men, being the very Word of God?

"..grace and truth came through Jesus Christ." v.17

When God came into this world, in the flesh 2000 years ago, he came as the light of men, and as the very Word of God.

However, at that time, Jesus Christ was not very warmly received. Why was that? the Old Testament scriptures testified of Jehovah God coming in the flesh as a son (Isa 9:6) and this son would fulfill many prophecies of the Old Testament, proving that he is the Christ. This wasn't very easy for many people, even though the scriptures proved that he was God in the flesh. Then what about those who did in fact believe, what did they receive?

"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God - children born not of natural decent , nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God." John 1:12-13

To those who received Christ and believed in his name they were given the right to be children of God.

In the verse in proverbs, God told his sons, his children, to pay attention to his words. What is it that we are paying attention to when we focus on the Word of God?

"And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place...Above all you must understand that no prophecy of scripture came about by the prophets own interpretation...men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." 2 Peter 1:19-21

In proverbs we were told to pay attention to the Word of God. Here in Peter we can see that the very words of God, the light shining in a dark place, are the prophecies that are given to us through the Scriptures of the Bible.

Then the Bible isn't just merely words that we must live our daily lives by, they are prophecies that we must do well to pay attention to, because these very prophecies are the light of our life, the words of our eternal life.

As we know, when Jesus came 2000 years ago, he was prophesied to come, that is why those who believed in the scriptures, saw him and realized that he was the Christ. The Scriptures state that those who believed in his name, would become worthy of being called sons.

However, we aren't living 2000 years ago anymore, and now we have the New Testament Scriptures, which must have much more prophecy pertaining to our time. Then what does the Bible say in regards to us?

In the time of Jesus Christ, the reason why the disciples were able to have eternal life was because Christ came as the life and the Word of God. Without God coming in the flesh , they would have not been able to receive the words of life from God.

"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!" and let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty let him come; and whoever wishes let him take the free gift of the water of life." Rev 22:17

In the last days the Spirit and the Bride are calling to give us the water of life.

Hm, this sounds familiar...

2000 years ago Jesus Christ said these very words,

"If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said streams of living water will flow from within him." Jn 7:37

Does this mean that God wants to give us a glass of water?

"..whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." Jn 4:14

The water that Christ gave, was eternal life. But according to the book of Revelation, who is giving eternal life in the last days?

"The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!"...take the free gift of the water of life."

Well, we know that the water of life is eternal life. Eternal life was given to us by Christ. However, in the last days, the Spirit AND the Bride are giving the same water of life.


I think you know where I'm going with this one. So many believe that the bride is the church, but that is the error they have in not understanding the scriptures. If we merely take the scriptures as a moral guide to life, then yes, none of it will make sense and sure, the bride can be the church that is giving eternal life. Can the church give itself eternal life? Can a human being give a human being eternal life?

Doesn't make much sense does it?

That's what happens when we don't "Pay attention" to the words of prophecy.

The disciples were blessed because they believed in the name of Jesus and because of that they were given something very precious...

"He (Jesus) replied, "The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them." Matt 13:11

Because the disciples believed in the name of Christ they were given the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, which are the very prophecies of the Bible.

What name of Christ must we believe in to receive the same gift? Is it still Jesus Christ?

"I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it known only to him who receives it." Rev 2:17

"; and I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." Rev 3:12-13

Jesus already testified that he would give us a new name. This name will be given in the age of the Holy Spirit, the age in which the Spirit AND the bride are giving eternal life.....

Then, in order to know the secrets of heaven we have to first believe in the new name. WHat is that new name?

Christ Ahnsahnghong came to this earth and fulfilled every prophecy regarding second coming Christ in the Scriptures. Without the Scriptures we would not know and firmly believe he is God. However, God gave us the scriptures so that we may understand the fulfillment of prophecy.

It wasn't the miracles that Jesus performed that led people to him (if that were the case everyone would have believed, but many shied away), it was the fact that he fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament, that is why even when he testified of himself what did he use?

"And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself." Lk 24:27

Think about it, HE is God, did he really need to testify of himself through the scriptures? No, he could have easily moved their minds. But he came as an example set for us, in order for us to understand that the only way to truly see Christ is through the Scriptures of the Bible. Many can proclaim they are the Christ, but without prophecy fulfillment, there is no proof.

Church of God World Mission Society stands firm in knowing and believing that Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother are God, because it is written in the scriptures through numerous prophecies. To post them all at this very moment would be impossible, the only way to truly know it and see it is to read the very words of the Bible that testify about Christ.

The teachers of the law in the Apostolic ages claimed to know the scriptures and even quoted the very passage that stated where Christ would be born, but did they believe in him? No, they didn't, because they didn't trust in the prophecies and in the end what happened? They killed their own God.

We cannot make the same mistakes. Prophecies are being fulfilled to this very day and God gave us these very Scriptures so that we may know how to have life, how to follow God and where to go to seek help from disasters...that is God's promise.

"Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets." Amos 3:7
