The Bible is worthy of our trust. Listen closely to Adrian Rogers you'll have to be ashamed of life, you have to stand on the corner and wonder, am I going to be an ignorant room for believing the Bible I different this book is timeless is indestructible. It is infallible is eternal, not the Book-of-the-Month of the book of the year. It is the book of the ages for an ever old Lord thy word is settled in heaven. That's an incredible thing that where I am a document that is literally millenniums old. In some instances deal with finding he'll come with this and it's an incredible welcome to love glorifying featuring real truth that never changes around the teaching of pastor and author Adrian Ruch part one of today's message. We learned that the more we read the word of God, the more it will reveal itself to be true. It is a supernatural book divinely inspired by God often called the very breath of God.
It's a spiritual book written by the Holy Spirit and it is the Savior's book Jesus is the hero of the Bible he's found on every page. If you have your Bible turnout of Psalm 119 is Adrian Rogers reveals the rest of the seven wonders of the word seven wonders of the word of God as I see them and I well first of all, wonder number one. The Bible is a super natural book was written as the Bible was written about the Bible says in second chapter 3 verse 16 that all Scripture is given by inspire ration of God and it literally means that the Scripture is God bringing the Bible is as much the word of God as if God were appear in a physical body speaking words and so as you read the Bible superhuman book you see the prayers of praise as the fears and victories. The yearnings the frustrations of the man who wrote this book smart by their personalities yet in and through these men was the one who is doing the speaking, believing, not only is it a supernatural book, but my dear friend it is a spiritual book a lot I mean by that is that the Bible written by the Holy Spirit must be interpreted by the Holy Spirit. Now Revelation is God's communication of proof the man inspire ration in a broader sense than the narrow sense I gave just a few moments ago is the recording of that revelation, but you say Revelation and inspire ration is not enough. We still need illumination to be able to understand the word of God, and in these scriptures that I read to and I noticed that they were prior Lord, open my eyes that I may behold wondrous things in my law.
This book is a spiritual book, you will not rip truth out of it. God will reveal it to you. You won't have me you may have a perfectly inspired word of God. But until Holy Spirit uses it as his convicting cutting sword until he illumines you as a student of it will not be real in your heart. Thirdly, third, one of word. Not only is it a supernatural book. Not only is it a spiritual book. It is the Savior's book the Savior's book hi since the Savior is book number one because he believed it as the Savior's book number two because it presents him.
Jesus Christ is the hero of the Bible. If you read the Bible you will find Jesus Christ somewhere, somehow, standing in the shadows are presented in plain view. Go back and read it again because the Bible is about the Lord Jesus Christ. Let me just say rewrite those two things again. First of all, Jesus was a believer in the inerrancy of the word of God, even the liberals have to confess that Jesus was a believer in the inerrancy of the word of God. Jesus said in John chapter 10 verse 35.
The Scripture cannot be broken. That's what Jesus Christ said about the Scripture by registering the Gospel of John chapter 5 I want to see what the Lord Jesus said about the word of God. John chapter 5 in verse 39 Jesus said search the Scriptures and then you think that you have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me. And by the way what Scriptures was he talking about them. The Old Testament, the New Testament had not yet been written, and Jesus speaking to the Pharisees and others said you search the Scriptures. These are they which testify of me. Don't ever get the idea that the Old Testament is about this really the New Testament is about the church of the Old Testament is about history. The New Testament is about the Lord Jesus friend Jesus said, concerning the Scriptures, the holy writings that they testify of him and then I want you to look down in verse 45. John chapter 5 verse 45 do not think that I will accuse you to the father. There is one that accuses you even Moses and whom you trust what he said Moses he was talking about what we called the Pentateuch, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy called under one heading Moses not Jesus believe that Moses wrote the Pentateuch and then does what he says in verse four, 64 if you had believed Moses, you would believe me, for he Moses wrote to me about what you notice this, that Jesus put the writings of Moses and his sayings on the same plane. But if you believe not his writings. How should you believe my words to say that this is what he did for CM door slot.
Moses wrote what Moses wrote on the same level as his own turn back to the book of Luke here for just a moment. Luke chapter 24. I'm just trying to show you Jesus view of the Bible, because why what is your master have the service of the Bible must be the same as his master's right and Luke chapter 24 were back on Emmaus Road. Now Jesus is walking along these two forlorn disciples sees that they don't understand his resurrection and he says to them in verse 25 old fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken many what Jesus Christ would call you tonight if you don't believe all that the Old Testament prophets said he would call you a fool, and slow of heart that means dull of hearing all follows and so hard to believe, not all that the prophets have spoken and knows how he reason with them. Not Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory and beginning at Moses and all the problems that Izzy began in the Pentateuch and went right on through the rest of the Bible, beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded under them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself how I would love to have a tape recording that you imagine what that must've been like Debbie walking along the very son of God who begins the book of Genesis is right on through the Bible and shows in all the Bible things concerning himself. The Old Testament wow this is my friend. Supernatural. This spiritual book is Savior's. He believed that he said the Scriptures cannot be broken and he said you search the Scriptures for these are they which testify of me. Jesus is the thing the hero of all of the Bible in Genesis.
He's the promisee in Exodus is the Passover lamb and Leviticus. He's that perfect sacrifice then numbers. He is that star out of Jacob and Deuteronomy. He is the prophet that is greater than Moses and Joshua. He is the Commander-in-Chief and judges the deliverer in Kings and Chronicles and Samuel. He's the King of Kings and Ezra, he is God's temple and Nehemiah Hickey is the gate to the city and Esther is the one come for such a time of as this in Joan is the Redeemer who will stand in the last day upon the earth insolvencies the good Shepherd and proverb sees the wisdom of God in Ecclesiastes. The one upon whom we have 10 in Isaiah. He is a virgin born son of God in Jeremiah is the righteous branch, and the song of Solomon, he is the one altogether lovely and in the book of Hosea, he is God's son called out of Egypt. In Malachi. He's the son of righteousness with healing in his wings. This book is the Savior's book now there are some who would accuse you. If you love the Bible too much nor they will accuse you of too much.
According to Lynn if you love it too much.
According to them, they will accuse you of Beverly A.
Know that means I say you made an idol of the Bible you worship the Bible. What a friend levitated something if they call your deep love for the Bible bibliology three that's their problem and not yours unless you actually worship the Bible and allowed to stand between you and Christ, but it brings you closer to Christ paid no attention to them. Just keep on loving the Bible and cherish it all the more is the Savior's book because he loved it and believe that you can love and believe it is the fourth wonder of the word of God. Yet my dear friend is a sovereign book a sovereign book.
What I mean by that is, it is the supreme authority and spiritual matter, not human reason, don't take the Bible and paraded past the bar of human judgment to see if you agree with it are not, not conscience.
Conscience is not the supreme authority if you had to choose between obeying the Bible or obeying your conscience. I hope you know what you would obey the Bible.
You see, conscience is not an infallible guide.
Your conscience is like a sundial.
Only a true light. The sun will make it register the right thing. Don't look at the Bible with a flashlight of human opinion. You have to look at the Bible in the light of the Holy Spirit of God, the flashlight of public opinion tradition is not the authority Jesus one of those in Mark chapter 7 verse 13 will make the word of God is not a fact through their tradition. This a pastor I like you calling the Bible, sovereign, because God is sovereign and the Bible says God says God said leave your verse friend blow you doors off.
Psalm 138 verse two. For thou hast magnified thy word above thy name mutual net 141 magnified his word above his name so different. This book is a sovereign book, a man in his word may be different in this dishonest world in which we live, but God in his word of the same Union Bank on God. You can bank on the word of God. It is a sovereign book. I want to say that this wonder of this wonderful book is is a surviving book, a surviving book goes on and on and on and on.
Matthew chapter 24 in verse 35 have an earth shall pass away, but my words shall never pass away. First Peter chapter 1 verse 25 the word of the Lord in doers for F forever becomes the sender and the stars splinter and paid the word of God will be in existence that doesn't change it survive ever so often will read in the newspapers about some new theory as to how the earth began or how the universe began, I have some early man they found this thing or that thing are somebody is found some hidden esoteric books and all of this thing ever saw you read this and then people forget about it word of God just keeps on going on. Hi John, I'm so glad the Bible and agree with modern science. In every instance why because if they agree with today's science tomorrow may be wrong because science is constantly changing. You give the scientists enough time and maybe sooner or later there catch up with the word of God, I'm serious about that is not a cliché when it's an incredible book, you'll have to be ashamed of the Bible, you have to stand on the corner and and wonder, am I going to be an ignorant room for believing the Bible, my dear friend, this book is timeless is ultimate is indestructible. It is infallible is eternal. It is not the Book-of-the-Month of the book of the year is the book of the ages forever old Lord thy word is settled in heaven thing that where I am. The patent document that is literally millenniums old.
In some instances here. We, on the 20th century, the atomic age still with finding help and comfort wisdom from this book. But God be true and let every man be a liar thank God for this book that is a surviving book in Dr. Lee this time Robert Jay Leno not Robert E Lee said this concerning the Bible. Enemy noise has not silenced one warning the enemy's black smoke is not been one bright hope the enemy stands have not torn one blemish in its snow white vesture, infidelity, Inc. has not diluted one drop of her honey. The enemy has not plucked one pedal from the Rose of Sharon, nor impose one stain upon her. I love that I like that I want to say that the sixth wonder of the seven wonders of the word is this. Not only is the Bible is surviving book with the Bible is a sustaining book.
Not only does it survive. It enables me to survive. As you are physically sustained by physical measurement. You are spiritually sustained by the word of God. That's exactly why Jesus Christ taught in Matthew chapter 4 verse 420 said man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God. Every word becomes God's mouth is to your spirit what bread is to your body. That's the reason that old Joe said perhaps the oldest piece of literature or known to man. The book of Job, Job 23 verse 12. I have a Steve the words of his mouth more than my necessary food that is if I had to choose between the word of God and groceries I have to choose the Bible. I'm afraid most of us wouldn't do that, I was skiing the words of his mouth than my necessary me do most of us a lot of good if we study more in a less say amen and notice for is a sustaining book. Here is what God's word says first Peter chapter 2 verse two as newborn babies desire the sincere milk of the word that you may grow thereby one we have so many baby Christians who remain babies, they will get the word of God and are growing great Bible teacher of yesteryear with Dr. R a Harley you have any doctors books read them. If you don't have some vital is what Dr. Tori said oh you may talk about power. But if you neglect the one book that God has given you is the one instrument for which he imparts and exercises his power. You will not have 19 nine Christians in every hundred are merely playing it. Bible study and therefore 99 Christians in every hundred are mere weakling when they might be Giants both in the Christian life and in the service. I've been passed along enough of this dear church that I love with all my heart and soul to know a great number of our people only playing at Bible study about all the real nutriment they get is when they come here on Sunday and I'm grateful that you do befriend.
This book is a sustaining book.
The older I get, the longer I live the more I know the more I understand the sustaining power of the word of God. I want to say, the last of the seven wonderful things that I have seen in the word of God tonight. This book that is all these other things is therefore a super charged book. I mean, dear friend. It has in our high priest on the power of the blood of Jesus Christ verse that I used was John six and verse 63 when Jesus said the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, they are life. We read other books. This book reads Hebrews chapter 4 verse 12 says the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than a two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit its quick northward quick means in the old King James English it means it's living so I didn't raise it sayings it pulsates with power word of God, Jesus and the words I speak and be less severe in their life is quick and powerful in our case, it means that it is full of vibration long enough to know friend.
This book does things to people and nothing else will.
I mean there's power in this thing. I've seen an piercing lesson that's able to trade and scrutinize the animals part of your personality. So many figures of speech in the Bible. The Bible is called the seed because it impregnates all the fire because it burns a skull hammer because it crushes is called so hard because it casts one more time I want to tell you that the purpose of the Bible is to present Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world is the reason the apostle Paul said, I'm not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God, of the salvation. James one verse 18 of his own will begat ES with word of I hope you always stand in a visible and I've mentioned seven wonders out of 70,000 wonders of the word of God in today.
