Bible Reveals Love
Still Think the Bible Is a Fairy Tale?
There is a big problem with people that think the Bible is a book of fables or that the Bible is not relevant today.
There are 2 forces in the world & everyone has witnessed the power of both – Good & Evil. The Great Controversy
of this world is the battle between Good & Evil.
Evil comes from darkness. A fallen angel named Lucifer was not content with his place on the throne of God as a covering angel & his pride & ego of wanting to be like God caused his rebellion. War broke out in heaven & Lucifer was cast down to the earth. All conflicts, pain & suffering results from Lucifer having dominion over this earth. Lucifer is also known as the Devil or Satan.
The Bible has God’s Character revealed in His Ten Commandments. The Gospel message is also contained on those two Tablets of Stone that were written by the finger of God Himself.
Good is from God. It is Love & the Bible tells us in John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
Here is the answer to my question above. If the Bible cannot be trusted, why did Satan question what the Word of God says when he tempted Eve in Genesis 3:1 ? Here is that verse:
Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
Another place to review is when Jesus had been fasting for 40 days & Satan tempted Jesus 3 times in Matthew 4. Satan actually quoted scripture ( Psalms 91 ) but left out a verse.
No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
In Matthew 4:6, Satan has left out the verse: “To keep you in all your ways.”
Bible students realize that Satan knows scripture. Satan also has over 6,000 years experience of deceiving man. Satan had one goal in mind when tempting Jesus. Satan wanted Jesus to ‘sin’. Satan wants to kill, steal, and destroy our lives here on earth & there is a way to overcome the deceptions of Satan.
Jesus overcame the craftiness of Satan because Jesus had a thorough knowledge of God’s Word. Jesus also spent much of His free time on this earth in prayer to His Father. Because Jesus overcame the temptations of Satan, we have victory and will only die the physical death. People that believe what Jesus said in John 3:16-17 and in other places of the Bible have the assurance of eternal life for our spiritual natures.
