Welcome to worship and the word with pastor Robert Morris. We are making our way through a new series called more than worth where Pastor Robert shares how to read the Bible experience miracles.
Discover the answers you need and refresh your passion for the word of God today. Pastor Robert is going to share with us how the Bible meets the very breath of God, and it brings understanding Porter strength in life. I know that this message is going to speak to you. So let's join Pastor wearing a series on more than words.
We talked about bread, but the Bible is our nursery sustaining daily food from God what nourishes us.
We talk about is water. Last week you and this way we run the title of messages, breath. The Bible is the very breath of God to show you that, so it's like Eric's like food, water and air bases like we said, how long can you go without food. Most experts say 40 to 80 days. How long can you go without water. Most experts say.
I said 7 to 14. I reread that study advice. Actually, for the 14 dates so that's why many do a three day water fast if they were little full fast only three days because of the force that you could start having difficulty okay so I said hello and go without food. Well maybe a couple months. How long can you go without water a few days. How long can you go without air. Not very long few minutes, maybe right kind. I think we have malnourished, dehydrated and oxygen depleted Christians are not eating their bread. They're not drinking the water and they're not breathing in error nor the breath of God. So I show you what we call it the breath of God second Timothy chapter 3. Now I get Ezekiel 37 in St. Louis chapter 3 verse 16 says all Scripture before we gone.
I want you notice the word all, not some other element. All Scripture and I can underline these five words because all these next five words are one great work there one great work the next five English words all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, those five words are one Greek given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine somewhat.
We build our doctrinal is not what's being told to us by other people or what someone says on the Internet what the Bible says, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. Now that Greek word that those five English words are that Greek word is the new stuff. It is like many English words and I've told you for many Greek words.
It's made up of two Greek words, but it is one great work Fiat coming from the record Fiats which means God used all stemming from the Greek word Numa, which makes Tabriz and this way, which will actually forming new bombings breath and then use DOS means brief. So this word fee.
All use DOS means God brief might affect one of the versions actually translates it literally. It's the NIV version. It says all Scripture is God breathed.
That's those five young given by inspiration of God breathed in again Numa think about that Greek word breath air you you we have words today in learning the English language it come from that pneumonia and general problem with your breathing, pneumatic, major power true early or whatever. If you have a pneumatic nail gun. It runs on air Numa so so that's where we had a front so all Scripture is given by inspiration of God by fears which we know it's breeze by God. Now that's what we call the inspiration of Scripture, inspiration, the word inspire, literally means to breathe again. Now it has a secondary meaning that we know and that is to breathe an idea or motivation to do something into a person such as I was inspired when I went to church. I got inspired with this idea since I but the literal word inspire means to breathe in, so we talk about the expiration Scripture remains the God breeze in his word NW again as they wrote.
But I like to add a word that maybe you never even thought of about Scripture and that's expiration that expire means to breathe out now again it has secondary meetings, but it literally, the primary meaning is exhale inspire is inhale expire is exhale. The reason I say this is God not only inspired the Scripture which means he breathed it into the man who wrote it, but he expired because he breathed it out to breathe in the because the Bible says lately, look at the Scripture second Peter 121 says.
Knowing this first one.
I wish Christians would understand if you put this first that this book to me first in your life will change a lot your life. Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture. No prophecy of Scripture is that any private interpretation.
For prophecy, somewhat of Scripture now for prophecy of Scripture never never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. In other words, God the Holy Spirit, God breeze out expired. Breathe out the word of God and he breathed a beginning to the end and they wrote as they were inspired our field with the breath of God, and you have to know that because listening to me were going to work on it because the big deal now is the inerrancy of Scripture, happy say the Bible contains no errors. I tell you what if it came from the mouth of God can have errors in. If you deny the inerrancy of Scripture.
You will also have to be denied the inspiration of Scripture because you can have about once we can say that it came out of the mouth of God and has errors because God's perfect and he can't ever see have to deny both and here's the thing. If you can deny.
David has given has errors than you can pick and choose which part you think the right which makes you God and you're not dumb unless a little something little more about this. I think I can even believe the sheer arrogance of a person that thinks they can judge the word of God might affect you what you need to be fearful for your life because you don't judge this book you will be judged by this book. This book is going to judge you and you better be careful what you say because this book. Apparently, according Scripture holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. And here's one such that same Sunday. Jesus said anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will never be forgiven him. Not in this lifetime or engaged in telling there from some people that need to shut up about the Bible, you better be careful now.
I could not three weeks ago when I get this address.
Inerrancy of Scripture. I know it's a hot topic well care needs to be addressed, but I got some emails about you know and one of them.
A lady was sitting still not making fun of placer, but she she said when she said no pass hacking petro believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, so she said what version is he usually doesn't matter which version because inerrancy doesn't refer to translations inerrancy refers to the original language and we translated and we hadn't many of my son, you're watching other countries, but many of us where we go think English is what's only spoken and having no were just so arrogant about that. But what about when is translated into Japanese. What about when translated into German, or a mammogram or you know what some among us like those are translations so inerrancy never refers to the languages translated into refers to the original documents. When the man wrote it in Hebrew and Greek. That's one of her trips. But again, this letter went on to say which version is using. And then this would bother me because there is no doubt that there are some versions that contain errors that what bothered me was is this is probably a wonderful lady maybe a schoolteacher may be a nurse studied in some field, but not theology, but she read it on the Internet but she didn't say because I read that there is no doubt she said because there is no doubt that she really doesn't know what she's talking about. I would take some of the word of God. We are born again by the word of God, not of corruptible seed, but of a purple seed that lives and abides forever in heaven and earth will pass away, but the word will never pass away. The grass withers and the flower fades, but the word of God will stand forever.
The Angels mining strength watch over the word to performance. The word will always return and will never return for the always commerce what God wants to take its life to those who find it itself to their whole body is sweeter than honey and secure the building sharpening the tragic 45 free for the soul, spirit, and the word of God stands forever will stand forever.
Listen to me. I can't make you believe in God.
Matter fact will you be saved is by grace through what faith you don't have to have faith believing God. I can make you believe in God you have to choose I can make you believe the Bible's word of God, but they one thing once you believe in God your life changed. Once you believe that this is his word. Your life changed exchange forever because you have a standard mouth and you also have life. This is life this one Dante, so Ezekiel chapter 37 right.
I did about writing that introduction.
I don't as a good introduction to a message on Ezekiel 37 LinkedIn versus alert universes your and then we'll just quickly go through four points about my first one the hand of the Lord came upon me and brought me out in the spirit of the Lord and set me down in the midst of the valley and it was full of bones. Please notice not skeletons. The bones are unattached bones. They came because me to pass by them all around, behold, there were very many in the open valley and indeed they were very dry and he said to me, Son of Man can these bones live so I answered several Lord God, you know, again, he said may prophesy these bones and save them. Oh dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones notice Earth hour when God speaks, surely I will cause brash to enter you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you and cover you was and put breath in you and you shall live then you shall know that I am the Lord. So I prophesied as I was commanded and as I prophesied, there was a noise and suddenly a rambling and the bones came together, bone to bone.
This is when they began skeletons and did as I look the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and steer in the cupboard over there now they look like human beings.there was no breath in them.
Also, he said to me, prophesy to the breath, prophesy Son of Man and say to the breath, thus says the Lord God, from the four winds over breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath came into them and they live, and stood upon their feet, and exceedingly great army therefore points about the breath of God number one the breath of God brings understanding understanding verse three he said Alamo come out of first chapter 37 verse 370, Son of Man can these bones live so I answer the Lord God, you know, here's what I'm saying if you're going to church if you're going to judge by the Bible whether you can understand it or not, I feel very sorry for the very things you're not going to understand what you believe by faith. In other words, here's what he said. It is this logically possible.
Ezekiel sickle said I will employ but you enough about this one. But if God said, can a man walk on water. Know what you know about this app can a man walk on water. I don't know that you, but I know if you want my woeful water you can walk on water you could cause another human being to walk on water.
Job 37 verse nine verse eight. But there's a spirit in man and the breath of the Almighty gives him understand how many times have you made the statement you know if I could just understand what I was going through. I could just understand what God's trying to teach me right now. Yeah so that I could just understand this is what gives you understand this is what gives your understanding the Bible says in first Peter three live with your wives with understanding. Listen to me you will never be able to understand women until you read this book and let me just say back to the ladies as you think of listen is where it is and I am in its true strength, you'll never build understand the man until you read this book I'm safe this way. Read the owners manual from the manufacturer tell you this is what gives understand there's number two the breath of God brings order Jeannie if you need order brought any part of your life gets the breath of God. Remember, all Scripture is God breathed, sold what I'm saying is Scripture brings order Scripture brings understanding verse seven so I prophesied I was commanded and as I prophesied, there was a noise and suddenly remedy and the bones came together, bone to bone the bones began, skeletons from the breath of God from the prophecy from the word of God. I spoke God's word in order came to the chaos. Psalm 33 verse six by the word of the Lord the heavens were made and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
Genesis 1 versus two, three. The earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep and the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of water. Then God said, let there be light and there was like why was there wind is something coming order. When God spoke, because we speak to brief the breath of God brought order to the chaos cares number three the breath of God bring strength don't just go through quickly, breath of God bring straight. I Ezekiel 37 verse six. I will put sinews on you per se. Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them a sinew is the tendon that connects the muscle to the bone. So let's say God's brought structure and order in your life but you need something to connect you to the power of God to the muscle. It's the word of God that connection. Listen this verse. The father is looking for those who will worship him in spirit and in truth when you come not combining reading this word with receiving the Holy Spirit. You're going to walk in the power of God, you're going to have that was really good by the way. Okay, so we show you another another one about the breath of God, how you the breath of God is powerful in next is 15 is right after the cross the Red Sea and I sang this song by the way is called the song of Moses, even though it was probably written by Miriam, we'll know for sure all the song of Moses. Revelation says were noticing it in heaven.
So you might brush up on it now because otherwise you grab the watch that the springs in heaven. Okay exit 15 verse eight, and with the blast of your nostrils, the waters were gathered together, the flood stood upright like to keep the dance congealed became like a wall was what that means in the hot became the firm's actual he were different became firm in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue that's he always says this I will overtake. I will divide the school my desire shall be satisfied only I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. Watch this you blue with your weekend and the sea covered them in like site like lead in the Muddy Waters okay so would you like to know how God parted the Red Sea looking I look at me so you know this is our God parted the Red Sea. That's I guess what we just read the Bible. A blast from your nostrils and seaboard you want about the breath of God's powerful and then it says he blew again and it covered them over. Personally, I think you get some like this. My bad bad bad. My bad.
My sorry, my bad habit. I heard about a professor there was always trying to discredit the Bible basically and minimize the miracles let you know how natural things could happen that occurred because this and and there was one student. The just argued with them the whole semester because they believe the Bible believe it literally if the Bible says God did.
God did sleeves going through this up so he said you need to know the Israelites crossed the Red Sea. There's one part where it's a little shallower.
This is actually part of this on the Internet where people say this and and there had been a drought at that time in Egypt and so where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea was only about 6 inches big and when he said this this student just burst out laughing, and the professor said that's it I'm and I'm I just getting believe I'm giving your scientifical, scientific, logical explanation. Now, you burst out laughing is that I don't mean to be disrespectful but he said that makes it even more of a miracle to me because the entire Egyptian army drowned in only 6 inches long, and here's number for the breath of God brings life, breath of God brings life Ezekiel 3070 and so I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath came into them and they live. They lived and we met we read all Scripture is God breathed, listen when you read this book you get understanding your life comes in the order you get the power of God in your life and you get life itself your field with what you feel with the breath of God, Job 33 verse four the spirit of God is made me and the breath of the Almighty gives me a line and we read all Scripture is breathed by God.
Breath gives me one. Here's one that everybody knows Genesis 27 and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living being. I so let me finish with this when I started Gateway church 18 years ago starlet differently than I ever heard church start not. There were better. Nothing like that. It's just that I decided the main thing that I could do is the senior pastor was feed people, the word of God and so I spent one day in the office that one day is leading the leaders we have extremely competent leaders.
I leave the leaders in the leaders leave the church I spent four days preparing message for the week every week. You can't imagine how many scriptures I cut out my notes because I don't have time, and 32 to 35 minutes on my time but I just I go through Scripture reference for Scripture. And here's what I'm doing. This is what you need to know because this is the breath of.here's what I do Tuesdays are the day in the office Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday all morning. I did this. I'm getting ready for you is for you to work.
But here's what I do four days out of five walk around like this I used to do this for a different reason.
But then I got saved but went below to get hold my breath. That will but did not come to church on the weekend and I share with you what God shared with me and I breathe out what he breathed EN to me and you receive the life of God but one breath the week for you is not an blast.
We would talk about water and not ended by saying, for God said this week that combines right will, for God sake and for your sake this week some grim take a bath and the we want to take a moment to think about with Pastor Robert and listen to what the Holy Spirit is seen you.
