Just Ask The Scriptures


The following interactive questions will engage your heart, mind and soul if you seek the light of the unchanging truth of Scripture which demands that you read it from God's perspective not yours. This survey is borrowed from a powerful teaching of 119 Ministries that says:
"Perhaps the best way to answer a Biblical question is to let Scripture speak for itself. The less commentary the better. The following study simply asks questions and allows scripture to establish the answer."
Just hover your mouse pointer over the Scriptures to see God's Word.

I want to thank 119 Ministries for these probing questions and Scripture references. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you visit their website and view the truth declared in their teachings. It will open your eyes and you will know why they always say "Test Everything"!

In conclusion, I want to thank Blue Letter Bible for their awesome technology that allows us to better understand God's word by looking at the original language. We can see a lot when we break the language barrier!

What does this all mean?

It means that it is now time for you to repent and return to God's covenant, return to hear and do His word and walk in the faith of His Kingdom path so that you can ready your lamp for your coming assignment. God is a sovereign God. He is a loving God and He has provided a way to offer you His salvation. You can accept His gift of life. Consider carefully what your life consists of, look at it and repent of your sin, ask His forgiveness and accept His gift of love through Messiah Yeshua. Do it now!

Today is the time. If you know you need to get your life right with God, don’t wait for tomorrow, get it right with Him now!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:16-17
Shalom.
