Studying God's Word

The purpose of this website is to share Spirit led teachings from many different writers that will point its readers to Jesus Christ, to be led of Him who IS the LIVING Word of God. I pray for all those that come to this site, that the Lord would reveal Himself to them and guide them into His truth while giving them the grace to walk in all the Light He has given them. - Becky Hayes

     In many ways the scriptures are like a hidden treasure that has to be revealed to us by the Holy Spirit. The Lord has hidden much of its truths from the "wise" and carnal man. The scriptures were never meant to be fully understood with human reasoning. There may even seem to be contradictions in the scriptures and trying to read and follow them as a set of rules with our carnal mind and understanding can only produce carnal and fleshly results; there will be no real everlasting spiritual fruit in it, but only a "form of godliness" without the power for true holiness with righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. It is a Spiritual book and can only be truly understood as the Holy Spirit gives sight to our spiritual eyes.

     This is not to say that the written word and its spiritual truths can not be understood by mere babes in Christ. It is quite the contrary; the new born babe in Christ has just received his spiritual eyes and they are opened to receive the truth from the Holy Spirit. But many times, they are talked out of it by the traditions of men and by other more "mature" and "learned" Christians. Remember, it was the wisdom of the Pharisees and the wisdom that Paul had before his conversion that had brought the scales to their eyes so they could not see and come to the Truth. Jesus said they "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And yet ye will not come to me {who is the way, the truth and the life}, that ye might have life." - John 5:39- 40.

     So there is no reason to despair or think who can know the truth if these "wise men" can't find it. But remember, Jesus said, "I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight." - Luke 10:21

     So for anyone who will receive the love of the truth no matter what it might cost them and is willing to be led of the Spirit, He will reveal Himself to them. He will use these "hidden treasures" to bring LIFE to them in Christ. And with Holy Spirit led teachers, He is able bring us truth that is found in the written word. It is much the same way He used the apostles in the first century to open up and explain the Old Testament scriptures to those that had a hunger and thirst for the Truth. And while He uses teachers today to give light on the things written more than two thousand years ago, it will be the Holy Spirit that will make them alive and as real to us today as it was to them so many years ago.
