What's Written... Is Written
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am very particular with words. Words are an important aspect of expression and one of the things that makes humans distinct and uniquely set apart from other species that walk upon the earth.
As a former elementary Teacher and a current Instructor, I value the conveyance of proper meaning of words as well as the intention behind them.
In today's society many take words and their meanings for granted. In some form or another words are taken with very little regard as promises are neglected or cast aside and most modern men are no longer concerned about the honor of their word.
However, when dealing with scripture it’s important to understand that it is written that scripture is inspired by the CREATOR. Knowing that HE is perfect, we must consider and hold in high regard the importance of the words chosen and not observe them with indifference or putting our own twist or definition to the words. We must accept the words that are actually written there. HE is the origin of language and knows exactly what HE wanted and needed to convey.
Words are used as a way to communicate and express what we are feeling. The doorway to our hearts. The CREATOR designed it this way. If there is a misunderstanding regarding what is trying to be conveyed it can result in much confusion as well as other frustrating emotions. Words are powerful, although not superseding the sovereignty of the CREATOR, they can influence the nature of the mind and the perception of our reality.
The CREATOR designed and constructed language as a means to communicate. We also know that the CREATOR is perfect in HIS ways. In recognizing this fact, we come to understand that the words chosen in scriptural text are sovereignly chosen to convey a message and thereby the meanings of these chosen words should be highly regarded as a matter of importance in understanding scripture.
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3: 16-17, KJV).
Scripture ....the words written in scripture...speak for themselves. It is clear. It is simple. Let us acknowledge and face the truth that what is written is written. Let us examine the facts and uncover the truth behind what is believed by millions. Only those who are lovers of truth will appreciate this concept.
