Be Inspired by the Word of GOD: 2 Timothy 3:16-17


Every scripture passage is inspired by GOD.

Yet first, you must understand this, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of any personal or private or special interpretation (it is for loosening, deliverance and solving) 2 Ptr. 1:20.

Scriptures are GOD speaking to us and useful in the manner of:

  1. Learning the full truth
  2. Pointing out our own errors
  3. Correcting our own faults
  4. Will train us all if we allow HIM to do so within HIS Word as HE instructs us to live right in this world which will carry the seal of GOD’s approval.

But the words, it was credited to him (Abraham), they were written not for his sake alone, but they were written for our sakes too. Righteousness, standing acceptable to GOD will be granted and credited to us also who believe in (trust in, adhere to, and rely on) GOD, who raised JESUS our LORD from the dead. For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that by our steadfast (constant, dedicated, devoted, faithful, immovable, loyal) and patient endurance and the encouragement drawn from the scriptures we might hold fast to and cherish hope. Rom. 4:23-24, 15:4

The scriptures were not written to make us feel guilty about anything after we have been set free because we believed in our hearts that CHRIST JESUS was tortured for us, died for us, and rose from the grave for us. No, they were written so that we may live victoriously through the knowledge of the truth as we seek out the answers to this life that we are living. The Word of GOD encourages, informs, inspires, teaches, and warns. All the while training us to be our best selves not through self-effort but in CHRIST alone. We are being equipped the more we trust and rely on CHRIST JESUS instead of relying on self.

But as for you, a man of GOD, flee from all these things; aim at and pursue righteousness (right standing with GOD and true goodness), godliness (which is the loving fear of GOD and being CHRIST like), faith, love, steadfastness (patience), and gentleness of heart. 1 Tim. 6:11

Strengthen (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out HIS will; while HE HIMself works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in HIS sight, through CHRIST JESUS (the MESSIAH); to whom be the glory forever and ever (to the ages of the ages). Amen (so be it). Heb. 13:12
