heavy heart

My heart is overwhelmed. My Opa peacefully entered into the arms of Jesus this week. As I listened to Christmas Carols on the radio, I was filled with awe that he was singing them in praise now! What a reward! I am so thankful for that surety of his life in heaven and can't help but wonder how those without Jesus Christ face death. I am at peace, but I also am sad that he is no longer with us (and its hard living so far from family) but I have that hope for an eventual reunion. I am so thankful! I will miss you, Opa!

My heart aches.

This is hard.

Those most probable of finding God's truth are those who are honestly seeking God.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.(NKJV)

Why would anyone who is seeking God and His truth not start by praying that God would show them His truth and His truth alone. Only God has the complete truth.

God has only one book of His truth, that is the sixty-six books of the Holy Bible. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God.(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Bible commentaries are not Scripture.

Church creed books are not Scripture.

Book written by popular preachers are not Scripture.

Church statements of faith are not Scripture.

The writings of theologians are not Scripture.

So-called books of new revelation are not Scripture.

When the opinions of men conflict with God's Scripture, men end up uncertain of their salvation, lost, and alone.
