    if everyone cannot study and understand the bible, then
    who can and who cannot? Let us get answers from the

    The Bible

    The Bible is the word, the word is God, and God is light,
    and light is life (John 1:1-14). No life without the word,
    which is the bible. So studying the bible is a very                                                   christian truth center
    essential part of a person who wants to have life and get
    revelation of what and who is ‘I AM’.

    The source of knowing God, having faith and believing in Him is through His word, The Bible, but many
    people have no time to read it. Many people never get even to the point of reading it. Many just nibble at
    it or not reading it at all. How do you talk of God or say you know Him or you are His child while truly
    you do not read the bible?

    You may read many books about the Bible or devotional materials loosely based on it, but this does not
    substitute reading the Bible itself. Good Christian books and magazines that supplement your Bible
    reading are fine, but there is no substitute for reading Scripture.[5/23/2014 4:13:54 PM]

    Many people do not read the bible on their own; they depend on others to do so. Only pastors, preachers
    and other people are the one who read the bible for them and this is only on Sundays. Work, business,
    money, family e.t.c takes center stage in their life that they do not have bible reading time. Some churches
    do not encourage or allow their followers to read the bible on their own. They say that the followers
    cannot understand it only their clergy can. It is absurd.

    Joyce Meyer says, ‘The Bible is no ordinary book. The words within its pages are like medicine to your
    soul. It has the power to change your life because there is life in the Word! And when you discover the
    power and truth of God’s Word, you will begin to see changes in your life that only this truth can bring.
    You will even learn how to recognize what the enemy tries to bring against you’.

    Let me give you a sneak preview of me and bible reading in the past

    How I used to read the bible

    I used to read the bible like many people do. First, I read it occasionally and it did not mean a lot to me. I
    could just grab it, open a story or any page and read through it to grasp the story-line like a novel. Or
    when faced with a problem, or am looking for something, I could just rush read a verse or chapter and
    stood by it and no one could change what have learned from that part have read.

    When Jesus Christ intervened, changed my life and poured the Holy Spirit in me, I realized that since I
    was born, I did not even know and understand the bible. I realized how foolish I was, thinking I knew yet
    I knew not. I had to go back from the first book Genesis and read it all over again but this time through
    the help and revelation of Jesus Christ.

    Many people are the way I was, and am here to change their life and make them stand or be in a point
    where Jesus Christ can reveal Himself through His word, by Him teaching you the bible as you read it,
    not by you teaching yourself with your own mind.

    There is a big difference between reading and studying. Look at the difference and see if you read or you
    study the bible.

    Do you read or study the bible or you do both?

    There are several reasons why people read or study the bible. look at some here.

    Reasons for reading or studying the bible

    Before you impact in studying or reading the bible ask yourself first the reason of reading or studying the
    bible and are you studying or reading it. The reasons depend on which group one is in and whether you
    read or study it or do both because different groups do it differently.

    We have two group and these are:[5/23/2014 4:13:54 PM]

    Non-believers: They read the bible;

           Looking for a certain specific thing
          To know the meaning of the words, the characters and the bible
          To show off (boast) that they do read the bible
          To take certain information
          there are so many other reasons

    Believers or Christians; they are the only people who study and understand the bible. Why?

    The bible is the word which is God. You cannot understand the bible if you do not have a relationship
    with Him; God. He is the one who revels Himself to you through the word thus the bible, and He cannot
    revel Himself to you if you’re not His Child or son.

    He does this through the Holy Spirit. One purpose of the Holy Spirit is to teach us the bible and bring to
    remembrance of all things.

    John 14:26: 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 to you.

    All this words are from the mouth of Jesus. Remember that Jesus is God: The ‘I AM’. Know that he was
    even before creation, so everything He has said is the word which is the Bible, thus the entire Bible is His
    words; everything He has said.

    Non-believers (those who are not saved) know not the Holy Spirit because He does not dwell in them but
    He is with them. Believers (those saved) have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them; thus they are a temple
    and a body of Christ; a burning bush. Since those who are not saved (of the world and referred in the
    bible as the world) are not one with Christ, they know and see the Holy Spirit not, and they understand
    Him not.

    John: 14:17: Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither
    knows him: but you know him

    But many believers so called Christians are man-made, just associating themselves with Jesus Christ,
    without the baptism of Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ to them, for the Holy Spirit to dwell in them. They are
    like the unbelievers who just read the bible and not understand it because they know not and understand
    not the Holy Spirit; Jesus Christ thus God does not revel Himself to them.[5/23/2014 4:13:54 PM]

    Major difference between true believers and unbelievers

    One major difference between true believers and unbelievers is that the unbelievers have other important
    issues to deal with in their life; thus they have other gods (look the meaning of god) who are so much
    important to them than the true living God, ‘I AM’ (I AM is the Bible which is the word). ‘I AM’ is not so
    much important to them; He comes last in the list of their most important things in life, and He can wait
    for them. So they read the bible rarely and occasionally many times searching for information or in a
    hurry to accomplish other life tasks.

    So the people who can study and understand the bible through the help of the Holy Spirit, God revealing
    Himself to them are those baptized by the Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ: The true Christians.

    True Christian’s major reason of studying the bible is to get revelation of and from God while for non-
    Christians this is not one of their reasons.
