There are tens of millions of books written and published. All are similar to some other book that has been written, except one – the Holy Bible.
Only the Holy Bible contains things that are totally foreign to natural man and beyond his understanding. All other books have been written by natural man about things he understands to some degree.
The Holy Bible is a spiritually inspired book of history and prophecy, totally unique to all other books. It has dimensions that do not exist in any other literature. You must be spiritually connected to believe it and understand it.
I Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
But, you have been given the measure of faith to make that connection.
... God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
The pure words of the living God, the Holy Bible, are truth,
Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
they are alive,
For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit,
and of the joints and marrow,
and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
and God considers them more important than his name.
I will worship toward thy holy temple,
and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:
for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Now, when I go to the doctor, I expect to be told the complete truth, whatever it is. I do not care to operate in the dark where my physical health is concerned.
When I go to the Bible with a clean heart, I can find the complete truth, whatever it is. Thank the Lord, I can now operate in the light where my eternal spiritual health is concerned.
II Corinthians 4:6
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
So, I declare the Holy Bible as my authority. This gives me great comfort, for I am depending on the One who inspired the words. I am not depending on created ones who think they know better than their own creator (Romans 3:10-18).
I do not question its accuracy; I seek knowledge and wisdom from it. Where it seems elusive, I ask the Holy Spirit to guide and teach me.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,
whom the Father will send in my name,
he shall teach you all things,
and bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come,
he will guide you into all truth:
for he shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak:
and he will shew you things to come.
I John 2:27
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you,
and ye need not that any man teach you:
but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things,
and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you,
ye shall abide in him.
I John 4:6
We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us;
he that is not of God heareth not us.
Hereby know we the spirit of truth,
and the spirit of error.
Since God has magnified His pure, preserved words (Psalm 12:6-7) above all His name, I will reverence them and depend on them accordingly. I will not add or subtract from the words (Deuteronomy 4:2) and I will not change the words (II Corinthians 2:17). They will remain in their pure state (Proverbs 30:5). As some others say, “I’m all in”.
He is the Rock, his work is perfect:
for all his ways are judgment:
a God of truth and without iniquity,
just and right is he.
