The Most Amazing Book

2 comments

 

I have heard people say the book is written by man. Well, yes. Of course, it is. With God’s voice. It is non-fiction. I guess you could say a book of life, about life. Have you ever heard of a ghost writer? The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost.

In the beginnings starts out the greatest book in history. Such an amazing book. The Holy Bible. History, mystery, travels, adventure. A touch of murder, violence, and amazing grace. In this book is the fate of a nation, the fate of the world. Death and destruction, beauty, and peace.

History. Some say that if we live by the bible we must sacrifice, cut peoples hands off, stone women, etc. Sure. It says so in the Bible. In the past they did. Key word…in the past. We cannot change? That is the history part. That changed by God’s words. We used to have hangings, firing squads, etc, but we no longer do. Why? Because we have changed.

God’s word changed as well. No more sacrifices. No more flooding of the earth. Along came Jesus and that brought about the New Testament. This is how we live now. He was the ultimate sacrifice. The King that saved the world and his flock.

 

John 13:34-35 King James Version (KJV) 34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

God took away the old and gave us the new. The Old Testament is History. Just as our United States and World History. It is there as a reference, a referral. It is there to show how far we have come. The evolvement of man. Have we changed so much? Remember the Old Testament but live by the New Testament. Jesus is the Way, The Truth, and The Life.

Remember our history. Slavery, stoning, swords, lance, mace, but remember the New. Love. That is all the commandments rolled in to one.

LOVE. The Bible? I read it every day. You can read it or not. The choice is yours. From David and Goliath, to Job, to the Birth, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus it is a fascinating non- fiction book.

YES, Man wrote it, but God is the Storyteller and He can weave miracles in this book.

The Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth), is truly the best book to read over and over again. Adventure, wisdom, mistakes, drama, travel, conflict and much more. Each time I read a passage I try to get more out of it than the time before. Then I try to apply it to my life which is ALWAYS the hardest art

I so agree with you. It is a most amazing book. So many things, so many challenges, so many trials.

  • Sometimes, there is nothing. And in an effort to define nothing, We become, Nothing. A strong sentiment to those who wished us well, Or a passing moment on a grassridden field as you train for your next track meet, Or the mornings you constantly met your friends at the same lunch table, These became epics you'd pass down to your younger ones. Things you can't come back from, Only to. A memory, a wish, All these romanced pastimes. Lost in ambition, escapes, The hope that you'd look out onto your porch one day and tell us all it was worth it. But what I really needed was a friend What I needed was to see that I take everyone for granted And I can't do that anymore. Life is grand, life is love. A love I may not have for myself, but a love I need to have for others so I can understand it in my own life. I can play a mask well, And I can play the part for my kids, but I can't lie to myself when the music is just right. They'll never see the crash, and all I can hope is that I've prepared them well enough to handle their hearts better than I was ever taught to handle mine. You're not allowed, you're not allowed to have emotional upsets in your 20s. You can't be an adult until you've let it all go, What a fool's choice. What a gold chase we've been sent on. As if the ones we still miss aren't just versions of our lives we quick saved on, "We'll get them back." They were never there. It was always you, the smiles, The love, the laughter, The warmth of the sun in February, It just had to be you. And it couldn't be anyone else, it just had to be. You. There. That morning, That day, that circumstance. You.
