“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”

James 1:13-14 NKJV

“Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.”

Psalm 17:4 NKJV

“Concerning the works of men, By the word of Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer.”

Colossians 2:15 NKJV

“Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.”

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NKJV

II Corinthians 6:14-16 NKJV

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people”

Ephesians 4:27 NKJV

“nor give place to the devil”

1 Peter 5:8-9 NKJV

Isaiah 1:18-20 NKJV

“ ‘Come now, and let us reason together,’

Says the Lord,

‘Though your sins are like scarlet,

They shall be as white as snow;

Though they are red like crimson,

They shall be as wool.

If you are willing and obedient,

You shall eat the good of the lands;

But if you refuse and rebel,

You shall be devoured by the sword’;

For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

Jeremiah 17:9-10 NKJV

“The heart is deceitful above all things,

And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart,

I test the mind,

Even to give every man according to his ways,

According to the fruit of his doings.”

2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV

“For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Revelation 2:4-5 NKJV

“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent.”

Matthew 7:6 NKJV

“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before the swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.”

John 14:15-17 NKJV

“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever – the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you will know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”

1 Corinthians 2:13-16 NKJV

“These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For who has know the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

Dear Father,

Hebrews 9:24-25 NKJV

Write a prayer to God using the following verses, or parts of them.

Psalm 119:105 NKJV

“Your word is a lamp to my feet

And a light to my path.”

Psalm 119:11 NKJV

“Your word I have hidden in my heart,

That I might not sin against You.”

Proverbs 6:23 NKJV

For the commandment is a lamp,

And the law a light;

Reproofs of instruction are the way of life”

2 Timothy 3:16 NKJV

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”

Ephesians 5:8-14 NKJV

Walk as children of the light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things that are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: ‘Awake, you who sleep,

Arise from the dead,

And Christ will give you light.’ ”

John 3:18-21 NKJV

“He who believes in Him is not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

Write a prayer to God using the following verses, or parts of them.

2 Chronicles 33:12-13 NKJV

“Now when he was in affliction, he implored the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, and prayed to Him; and He received his entreaty, heard his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.”

2 Chronicles 34:1-7 NKJV

“Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem.
And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of his father David; he did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was still young, he began to seek the God of his father David; and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem of the high places, the wooden images, the carved images, and the molded images. They broke down the altars of the Baals in his presence, and the incense altars which were above them he cut down; and the wooden images, the carved images, and the molded images he broke in pieces, and made dust of them and scattered it on the graves of those who had sacrificed to them. He also burned the bones of the priests on their altars, and cleansed Judah and Jerusalem. And so he did in the cities of Manasseh, Ephraim, and Simeon, as far as Naphtali and all around, with axes. When he had broken down the altars and the wooden images, had beaten the carved images into powder, and cut down all the incense altars throughout all the land of Israel, he returned to Jerusalem.”

2 Chronicles 34:27 NKJV

“because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before God when you heard His words against this place and against its inhabitants, and you humbled yourself before Me, and you tore your clothes and wept before Me, I also have heard you,” says the Lord.”

‘Then the king stood in his place and made a covenant before the Lord, to follow the Lord, and to keep His commandments and His testimonies and His statutes with all his heart and all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant that were written in this book. And he made all who were present in Jerusalem and Benjamin take a stand. So the inhabitants of Jerusalem did according to the covenant of God, the God of their fathers. Thus Josiah removed all the abominations from all the country that belonged to the children of Israel, and made all who were present in Israel diligently serve the Lord their God. All his days they did not depart from following the Lord God of their fathers.”

God’s Holy Word

God’s Holy Word

Memory Verse: Matthew 24:35

Life Application: I can depend on God’s Word.

The Bible Is Inspired, Flawless, And Eternal

The Bible is a message, or communication, from God – it is the only book in the world sent to us from God.  The Bible is God’s Word to each of us. It contains history, poetry, letters, and stories.

2 Peter 1:20-21  NKJV    “knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

     God inspired the Bible, which means that God stimulated people to write down His thoughts and words. God’s Word was given so we can know Him. By reading the Bible we know what God thinks and what He wants. God used people to record His Word, but He inspired each  of the 40 different writers through the Holy Spirit. Even with so many different writers, the Bible is flawless and fits together. There were hundreds of years between the time God gave the words for the first book until He gave the words for the last book of the Bible.

2 Timothy 3:16 NKJV    “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”

     The Bible is eternal which means it will last forever, exists through all time, unchanging, unaffected by the passage of time, and everlasting. Jesus taught that the Bible, God’s Word, is eternal –  that it will never pass away.

Books, Chapters, And Verses   

The Bible is made up of 66 books, and these books are divided into chapters, and verses. These divisions are given to us to help us find certain Scripture passages we are looking for. Also these divisions help us to follow along in a group setting.

Languages And Translations

When the Bible was first written, the writers wrote in Hebrew or Greek languages. First the Old Testament was translated into Greek, later into Latin. The first English version of the Bible was printed in 1384. The King James version was printed in 1611. When the English language changed, other translations were written. The NIV was translated as closely as possible to the original Greek. Some Bibles print the words of Jesus in red letters rather than black letters so we can easily see what Jesus said.

Hide God’s Word In Your Heart

It is important for each person to read and study the Bible. By studying the Bible we will know what God expects from us. We should also hide the Word in our heart by memorizing verses from the Bible. When we hid God’s Word in our hearts it will help us to keep God’s commandments and not to sin against God.

Psalm 119:11  NKJV    “Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.”

Hebrews 4:12  NIV    “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”

     As you acquaint yourself with what’s in the Bible through regular Bible reading and prayer it will:

* help you know where to find help when you need it.

* help you learn to recognize God’s voice.

* draw you into a deeper relationship with God.

* guide you in doing what is right, no matter what the situation.

* reveal God’s plan for you.

* show you the steps you should take.

* help you guard against false doctrine and Satan’s temptations.

Psalm 119:33-37  NIV    “Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end. Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserving my life according to your word.”

Bible Study Aids

There are several things that will help you as you read and study the Bible. A few of them are: a concordance, Bible atlas, dictionary, and a Bible dictionary. Also in the front of your Bible, you will find a table of contents, and in the back of your Bible you will find a small concordance. Some Bibles contain a subject index, maps, or a glossary in the back.

Concordance – a concordance lists all the scripture references under a word which contains that word.

Bible Atlas – a Bible atlas gives maps of the part of the world where people in the Bible lived. Some maps show how the cities and countries were during Old and New Testament times, and some maps show how those cities and countries are today.

Dictionary – a reference book that contains alphabetically ordered words, with explanations of their meanings.

Bible Dictionary – a reference book that contains alphabetically ordered words, with explanations of their meanings, often with information about grammar, pronunciation, and etymology.

Table of Contents – This page of the Bible will list the books in the Bible and on what page they begin.
