Bible Studies and Biblical Resources

We pray that all information shared will be received with a willing heart, to prove[tested/tried/examined] and discern according to the scripture alone, not comparing[measure] to or trusting in one's self/other's opinion, but trust Only in our Father GOD in Heaven, the Son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. 


Ps 118:14 - "It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.”

 

May the conviction of the Holy Spirit be upon you, revealing to you, the way, the truth, and the life in Jesus' Name. Amen

 

"And when he[the Holy Spirit] is come, he will reprove[convict] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: " - John 16:8

 

"Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." - John 8:31-32

 

What does the Bible say?:
 

  • "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. " 1 Thessalonians 5:21

 

  • The Bereans: "...they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. ' Acts 17:11 

 

This is a needful caution, to prove all things; for, though we must put a value on preaching, we must not take things upon trust from the preacher, but try (test) them by the law (Word of God) and the testimony. We must search the scriptures, whether what they say to be true or not. We must not believe every spirit, but must try the spirits.

 

But we must not be always trying, always unsettled; no, at length we must be settled, and hold fast that which is good. When we are satisfied that anything is right and true, and good, we must hold it fast, and not let it go, whatever opposition or whatever persecution we meet with for the sake thereof.

 

Note, The doctrines of human infallibility, implicit faith, and blind obedience, are not the doctrines of the Bible.

 

Every Christian has and ought to have, the judgment of discretion, and should have his senses exercised in discerning between good and evil, truth and falsehood, Heb 5:13, Heb 5:14. And proving all things must be in order to hold fast that which is good. We must not always be seekers, or fluctuating in our minds, like children tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine.

- Matthew Henry

 

'For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. ‘ - 1 Thessalonians 2:13

 

Names and meaning of names that we use interchangeably:

 

Yeshua HaMashiach = Jesus Christ; the name of 'Jesus' in Hebrew is 'Yeshua', which was most probably used by his family and friends of that time. Yeshua means "Salvation" and the Word 'Yeshua' was used many, many times from Genesis throughout scripture. 'HaMashiach' means 'the anointed one' and translated to English as 'Christ'.

 

YHVH or YHWH =  GOD; יהוה in Hebrew and YHWH in Latin script, is the four-letter biblical name of the God of Israel, which is transliterated into English as Yahweh.

 

Yahweh/Jehovah = YHVH = GOD

 

Ruach HaKodesh = Holy Spirit;

 

Ruach = Spirit

 

Shalom =  a Hebrew word meaning peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquillity and can be used idiomatically to mean both hello and goodbye.

 

 

  • Please note that we are by no means affiliated with the Hebrew roots movement for those wondering why we use interchangeably Hebrew names at times, the names in Hebrew does not carry any more significant value than the English translation ones. We, however, use both in the ministry.

 

All scripture used on this site will be either from the Kings James Version or Afrikaans 1953/1933 translation.
