There are 3 main categories of Bible readers – people who read the scriptures.
Remember that Bible is a book (a scroll) and Jesus Christ is a Person. See differences between the Bible and Jesus Christ
Bible (scripture) has no life, life is Jesus Christ. Reason Bible cannot raise a person from the dead but Jesus Christ raises the dead to life. See Scripture has no life
When Jesus said, ‘I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life’, He was saying, ‘I Am the Outer Court, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies’; ‘I Am the temple’.
Our bodies are the temple (1 Cor 6:19). The body is the way, the soul the truth and spirit the Holy of Holies. See how the word of God moves from the body to the soul to the spirit becoming life changing a person.
From the above teachings we see 3 main categories of Bible readers
3 Main Categories of Bible Readers
They are those who;
1. Scripture only enters the body (ears) never gets to the soul and the spirit
These are they who hear and read the word of God but it only gets in their ears; PERIOD! – It never gets to their soul and spirit. This means the word of God never becomes Truth or Life in them.
Word of God becomes Truth or a Lie when it gets to the soul of a human being because it’s in the soul a human has conscience, thoughts and can decide whether truth or false (a lie)
When the word gets to the spirit and meets with Holy Spirit dwelling in the spirit of a person, it becomes life changing a person otherwise if its evil spirit in the spirit of a person, the word gets no life, is dead changing not a person. See the body is the way, soul is the Truth, and spirit is life
These people hear with their ears but the word of God never gets through their ears to the soul for the word to become Truth
In Parable of the Sower, these people are represented by the seed that fell on stony ground
Mt 13:20-21 But who received seed in stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy. Yet he has no root in himself but endure only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
These people receive the word with joy – it’s only their ears which are tickled and that word of God never gets to their soul and spirit to have roots.
Many in so-called-churches today only get their ears tickled, receive the word with joy shouting ‘amen’, ‘hallelujah’ etc and immediately they get out of those buildings and face the reality of the tribulations in the world, they go with the world and its ways until next Sunday or Saturday to attend ‘church’ again and be tickled.
These are the blasphemous, abusers and persecutors of Jesus Christ and His followers. Do not be fooled, they can quote Bible verses but they have no truth and the scripture has no life in them. Saying they have no truth means they can use Bible verses to justify a gospel, a doctrine of hell.
Because they lack Truth, they are carried to and from by every wind of doctrine (Eph 4) – Brood of vipers and Pharisees they follow.
They are the Judas Iscariots who heard, but what he heard never become Truth and Life in him thus never changed him and he exchange it for money – better if he was not born (Mt 26:24)
2. Scripture passes through their ears to their soul but not to the spirit
They hear the word of God, the word moves from their ears to their soul but not from their soul to the spirit. Therefore the word of God becomes a truth but that truth has no life, power to change them.
As said in earlier post, how word of God moves in a person becoming the truth and life, there are 2 truths;
- A truth without Life
- A truth with Life
Truth without life changes no person – only the truth with life (power) changes a person.
These are the people who say yes! The Bible speaks the truth but that truth has never and cannot change them. You hear them say, ‘you have said the Truth’, ‘the preacher has preached the Truth’, ‘Joshua has taught the truth’, etc but that Truth will never and cannot change them.
They know ‘do not worry about tomorrow’ (Mt 6) is the Truth but day and night they are worried, and they live life trying to solve their worries through false Satanic worldly ways
They know ‘do not lie’, ‘do not abuse’, ‘God hates complainers, murmurers and accusers’ as the truth but day and night they are doing these things
They know a women wearing man’s clothing is an abomination to God and so it is with a man wearing woman’s clothing but they do the abominable and approve of it. See a woman in a man’s clothing is an abomination to God.
They know ornaments earrings are foreign gods (Gen 35) but they have them and approve of them. See ornaments are foreign gods
They know it is against God to have a tattoo or a body marking but they have them and approve them. See it is against God to have a tattoo
And they can quote Bible verses but their life and ways of life are not in accordance with the Bible (scripture) – they are disobedient to the same word of God they quote.
These are they Jesus said,
These people draw near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips but their heart is far from Me (Mt 15:8)
And in Titus, it is written,
They profess to know God but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient and disqualified for every good work (Titus 1:16)
They are the hypocrites. With their mouth they profess Jesus, quote Bible verse but if you look at their bodies (outer court), what comes out of their souls (holy place) and their works, testifies of Satan. See the temple in whom Jesus is dwelling is holy inside and outside
In the parable of the sower, they are represented by seed that fell among the thorns
He who received the seed among the thorns is he who hears the word and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word and becomes unfruitful (Mt 13:22)
No matter who much truth they know, Bible verses they can quote, the world always overcomes them and the word of God is unfruitful in them for they lack life; power – Holy Spirit. They have a form of godliness (2 Tim 3:5) loving the world and its ways.
Majority of so-called-Christians today, church-attendants lie in this group – they hear and read the word, they accept it as the truth but that truth cannot change them.
3. Word of God gets through their ears to the soul then to the spirit meeting with Holy Spirit
These are people who the word of God gets through their ears to the soul becoming the truth, then to the spirit meeting with the Spirit of God, Holy Spirit (Life) and the Truth takes Life, changing them.
These are the doers of the word not only hearers (James 1:22)
In the parable of the sower, they are represented by seed that fell on good ground
He who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, he who bears fruits and produces, some hundredfold, some sixty some thirty (Mt 13:23)
To them Bible (scripture) is not history neither Jesus Christ dead but living testified and witnessed by His power to heal all diseases and sicknesses, cast out demons, etc
Many people today speak of a ‘Jesus’ who cannot heal, deliver, cast out demons, etc. Their Jesus is different from the Jesus Christ I speak of who is now (this minute) healing, casting out demons, delivering, etc, by the mention of His name – in the name of Jesus
Many people today preach scripture, Bible but that scripture has not changed them.
Scripture (Bible) never changes a person but Jesus Christ does. Bible cannot deliver, cast out demons, make a person a new creature only Jesus Christ does.
The spirit of a human being does not exist in a vacuum. It is either under subjection to Holy Spirit or evil spirit. Therefore human beings are categorized into 2;
- Those with Holy Spirit
- Those with evil spirit
(It’s not about color, worldly languages, worldly ethnicity, etc.)
Evil spirit dwelling in a person cannot allow word of God bear fruit in him/her or change the person.
There is another group which I have not spoken of;
- The word of God never gets in their ears
They include the Satanists, Devil worshipers, witchdoctors, ritualists, spiritualists, etc, and today internet, Television, social media; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc is their biggest tool to accomplishing their Satanic missions agendas and assignment.
With these categories of Bible readers, evaluate your life. Which category are you in?
The kingdom of heaven is for the changed, the new creature in Jesus Christ, whom Holy Spirit dwells in and are doers of the word (obedient)
Jesus is Coming
Repent Repent Repent
Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
