BIBLE as REFERENCE

Psalm 119:97

King James Version

97 O how love I thy law! 

it is my meditation all the day.


There are many smart people on earth.

But no one can out-smart GOD.

He is the CREATOR, after all.

I've always known, and acknowledged, that.

But since He made me born again in 2019, proof from the Bible exceeded all my initial thoughts.

The day I first started really studying the Bible over three years ago, was the day I dropped ALL other books, and ideas.

The Bible had become my MAIN reference for everything.

Whether on GOD, JESUS, the HOLY SPIRIT, life, work, people, past, present, and future.

No one can match the Bible's TRUTH.

Which happens to be ABSOLUTE truth.

Something I had been seeking, for the longest time.

Not realizing it had been right under my nose the whole time.

How deeply humbled I was by the GLORY of GOD.

Now, I would not touch any other book, unless it had GOD in it.

The Bible had become my go-to.

For anything, and everything.

If you are still reading other literature, or checking out other gurus, hoping to get enlightenment, clarity, peace, love, joy, contentment, and fulfillment, you need only to seek GOD with all your heart.

He will do the rest.

He will lead you to the Bible.

The Bible will lead you to JESUS.

JESUS will lead you to the HOLY SPIRIT, as witness.

The HOLY SPIRIT will lead you to JESUS.

JESUS will lead you back to GOD.

It becomes a seamless whole.

And you shall find, all three are ONE.

1 John 5:7

King James Version

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, 

the Father, 

the Word, 

and the Holy Ghost: 

and these three are one.


But you couldn't have known that.

Until the HOLY SPIRIT taught you about Scripture.

Scripture is about JESUS.

JESUS is the WORD of GOD.

As you saw in the previous verse, and in this verse:

John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us, 

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.


The HOLY SPIRIT teaches us everything about JESUS.

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


You see, the Bible is really all about JESUS.

How everything was created for Him.

Colossians 1:16-20

King James Version

16 For by him were all things created, 

that are in heaven, 

and that are in earth, 

visible and invisible, 

whether they be thrones, or dominions, 

or principalities, or powers: 

all things were created by him, 

and for him:

17 And he is before all things, 

and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, 

the church: 

who is the beginning, 

the firstborn from the dead; 

that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father 

that in him should all fulness dwell;

20 And, 

having made peace through the blood of his cross, 

by him to reconcile all things unto himself; 

by him, I say, 

whether they be things in earth, 

or things in heaven.


Only by being born again, can we know things of the SPIRIT.

John 3:5-7

King James Version

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.


I've stopped looking for other material.

GOD already gave me His material.
