Paying Attention To Holy Scripture
Advent, Christmas, Lenten, Easter: These are the four holy seasons celebrated by every Christian denomination.
Do you know which one is liturgically scripturally correct and mentioned in the Holy Bible?
How many of you my brethren in Christ, when you read through Holy Scripture actually pay attention to what is written?
When you are sharing the holy Word of God, and Christ Jesus, how aware are you of the written word, its meaning and how it’s being applied, or, do you simply flip to some Scripture and use it to illustrate the thought or idea you are trying to convey, saying, this is what the Bible says?
For instance: All Christian denominations recognize the following (Four Seasons) Advent, Christmas, Lenten, and Easter. We follow our churches through them religiously, celebrating them as we have been taught, celebrating them as we have been told to do.
But, out of the four seasons, are you aware that only (One) season is liturgically, scripturally, mentioned in the Holy Bible, and that the other (Three) are religion created.
The only season mentioned by God in his Holy Word the Holy Bible is Easter, and the only mention of it comes to us at ACTS: 12: 4; “And when he had apprehended him (meaning Peter) he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.”
As an Apostle of Jesus, as an Evangelizer, it is extremely important to God and to you, to know the scriptures, and, have a basic understanding of what has been written and what is being said. To misquote, or to misuse Holy Scripture is possibly tantamount to causing someone especially a new converter to possibly stumble and turn away and that would be a terrible thing in the eyes of God and Jesus.
Paul tells us at ROMANS: 14: 21; “It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor anything whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.”
Again at; I CORINTHIANS: 8: 9-12; “But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak. For if any man see thee which has knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; and, through thy knowledge the weak brother perish for whom Christ died? But when ye sin against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.”
Every time we share the words of God, we must be careful that we are being guided by God’s Holy Spirit, and not by the “Liar” Satan. Always, always, always, invite the Holy Spirit to spiritually guide you to that scripture that will best serve our Holy Father God, and then patiently wait upon him to guide you. Don’t just jump in with scripture unless you are sure.
Every time we cause a weak brother, or, a new converter, or, someone hungry to learn about God and Jesus to stumble because we misuse or misquote God’s Holy Scripture, we are sinning against Christ. That is not something I ever knowingly wish to be accused of doing.
How about you?
