21st Century Spiritual Milk For Babes

MILK!

Bible MilkLesson:

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby”[1 Peter 2:2]

Question Number 47

 Question: How does the ministry of the gospel raise you up out of this lost state to come to Christ?


Answer:  By teaching me the value and virtue of the death of Jesus Christ, and the riches of his grace to lost sinners like me, and by revealing the promise of grace to me, and by the ministering the Spirit of Jesus Christ, and his promise of grace, and to keep me in him.

 

BORN AGAIN!

 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” [John 1:12-13] “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” [1 Thessalonians 5:24] “Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.” [1 Peter 1:5]

 


So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

The Formula

The “spiritual milk” for the 21st Century believer in Jesus Christ is the same spiritual milk that was recommended by the Spirit of God for now almost two thousand years.


This SINCERE MILK is the basic starting food so necessary for every new born-again believer to GROW.

 

[2 Timothy 3:16] All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
[2 Timothy 3:17] That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Bible Study Hints

2 Peter 1:21 “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

Prophecy involves future things … in future events. Prophecy is a foretelling; a prediction; a declaration of something to come. History is the record of the fulfillment prophecy.
Bible “prophecy” came not “by the will of man”. Man’s “will” was not involved at all. Bible prophecy came by the Holy Ghost WHO is GOD. God “moved” certain men to speak certain words that are God’s words in “old time”.

• God’s words that “holy men” “spake” “in old time” are preserved … for all time.

• God’s words are kept.

• God keeps them. Man does not keep them. The scholars do not keep them.

• God preserves them … in spite of the scholars. This is a direct promise of God.
 
This promise is found for all generations of men forevermore to see in Psalms twelve: “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” [Psalm 12:6-7]

 Do you see what I see?

• The words of the Lord are pure words.

• The words of the Lord are purified seven times.

This promise literally extends [in the English language] to all of US [the English-speaking nations on this Earth today].

Now, the seven purifications [or the translations] into the English for the English-speaking nations on this Earth are these:

• The Tyndale’s New Testament … in 1526.

• The Coverdale’s Bible … in 1535

• The Matthews’ Bible … in 1537

• The Great Bible … in 1539

• The Geneva Bible … in 1560

• The Bishops Bible … in 1568

• The King James Bible … in 1611

This seventh book represents a purified BOOK, and is the word of God in the English language.

Therefore, we have this promise from God that God actively maintained the “pure words” of God.

We have therefore, in the Authorized Version of 1611 [A.V. 1611] Bible … the “settled” words of God:

“For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.”
[Psalm 119:89]

The A.V. 1611 King James Bible, or any of its editions [1613, 1644, 1676, 1680, 1701, 1769], is the settled forever.
Amen!
