Daily Bread 9/26/2023


    Daily Bread – September 26, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) 2 Timothy 3:16 – All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness. All Revelation Of Jesus Is Confirmed In Scripture When we consider the fact that Jesus spoke only things which were already established in the Scripture and that God will not contradict Himself, we should recognize how everything we hear, whether it be prophecy or teaching, will always and forever be entirely supported by what the Bible says. God, in times past, spoke to us by the prophets, but today He is speaking to us by His Son, Christ Jesus (Hebrews 1:1-2). Jesus laid out the foundation of the New Covenant in the Four Gospels. He then further revealed more details of the New Covenant through His holy apostles and prophets (Ephesians 3:5; 2 Peter 3:2). Anyone today who would profess to be speaking the Word of God must speak according to the Word that has been written down. Anything that they reveal cannot be in contradiction to that which has already been established. For example, Jesus told us that we are to be born of the Spirit (John 3:3-6). Jesus then went on to explain how both He and the Father would come and dwell in us and that we would be one with Them (John 14:23, 15:4-5, 17:21-23) . The message of Jesus was clarified further through the ministry of Paul who taught us that being born of the Spirit produces a new creation which is created in righteousness and true holiness (2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 4:24). We then learn from Peter that when we are born of God, we receive the divine nature (2 Peter 1:3-4). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
