Holy Bible: God's Word
Holy Bible: God's Word For Man Today

If it's one thing that the enemy does, it is to try to discredit the Word of God, the Bible. The enemy, the Devil, uses the same old argument that the Bible translation is not in the original language, is full of errors and contradictions and therefore cannot be relied upon. Make no mistake that the Devil is a liar and will do anything to try to discredit the Word of God to lead us away from God, that we might perish. The Devil has even used the really bad translations that water down the Truth of God's Word to provide false substance to his case. However, you should realize this: Because God is God, He is able to preserve His Word for His People and is able to provide it in a language that His people can understand. Remember the words of Jesus, when He said: "..I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." Matthew 16:18. "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35. "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:32. Another argument that the Devil uses and crops up all the time, is why are there so many books that make up the Bible, surely God would have provided just one book and preserve its original language. People that say this don't know the power of God, or the Will of God. God's revelation to Man is progressive and releases it as it is needed, in accordance with His Will. The children of Israel, in Moses day, didn't have the revelation of Jesus Christ because it wasn't the right time in God's Will. Remember how in Exodus how Moses received the two tablets of stone, written by the very finger of God, containing the Ten Commandments (Exodus 31:18) and in anger against the people for their wickedness Moses cast them down, braking them to pieces (Exodus 32:19)? God restored them again (Exodus 34:1). God restored His Word for His people in the day of Moses and has preserved His Word for His people today.

How do we know the Bible is the Word of God? Quite simply the Bible tells us so: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" 2 Timothy 3:16. The Holy Spirit moved on men, in other words, they became God's instrument for recording and preserving His Word for His People.

Those that have received the Holy Spirit have the witness of the Holy Spirit, that the Bible is the Word of God, because the Holy spirit bares witness to the Truth: "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:.." John 16:13. If we have received the Holy Spirit we are not alone, because He dwells in us and opens our eyes and understanding of God's Word. Spiritual things have to be spiritually discerned and this is the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives (1 Corinthians 2:14).

Most people cannot read Greek, Hebrew, or Latin and so have to rely on a good english translation, but which one? Over the years I have looked at may different translations and there is one stands far above the rest and that is the Authorized King James Version (not to be confused with the New King James Version). The Authorized King James Version has in my view, a spiritual quality that is missing in other translations and is the one I would strongly recommend. Whichever  translation one  uses, the important thing is to read and study the Word of God for yourself, asking the Holy Spirit to open up the Scriptures to you and reveal to you the beautiful hidden treasures, the wonderful promises and precious Truths to be found in the Bible.
