The Bible is the best selling book of all time! What makes the Bible so special?  This a book that is unlike any book ever written.  It contains 66 books from 40 different authors each having differing jobs and backgrounds from a King to a fisherman. It was written over a span of 1500 years and yet it contains a unified message all the way through and has no contradictions! Imagine trying to get a group of 40 authors to each write a book about any subject. Would they all agree 100 percent? No way. The Bible is truly remarkable!

The Bible is split into two parts, the old and new testament or covenant. What is a covenant? A covenant is a legal binding contract between two parties. For example, a marriage covenant or a house mortgage. What happened to make the Bible be split like this? Jesus was born. The Old Testament is before Jesus, and the New Testament is after Jesus.

Let’s look closer at what is in the Bible. Notice the books are grouped into sections.

Old Testament

1.) The Law

Books of the Law

The Bible tells the story of history. But when I say story, I do not mean a fairy tale, but events that really happened...

Thanks for dropping by today, you brought the sun and broke the gray

your beauty leads with heart close by, for those who see with more than eye

 


You glide with grace but power too, your heart and soul you let see through

Your mask-less face will draw them near, and you will lead them out of fear

 


Wounded wings but birds still sing, so lift your head and try your wings

For you will heal and stronger be, you will soar and higher see

Have you wanted to read through the Bible but it seems like an overwhelming task! But it is so important to get the big picture of God's revelation to us. Here is a way to quickly get the big picture, the story of the entire Bible through this graphic novel.

 

It begins in Genesis and goes all the way through the book of Revelation. I sat down and read the entire book in 2 hours and I am not a fast reader! The book has scripture references on every page, while the online version enlarges the main text so it can be easily read on a phone.

All Things New

 

There is much to learn about God and what He has in store for you.  In fact it will take you the rest of your life and even then you will probably feel like you've barely begun.  But it is a journey filled with joy and the excitement of discovery.  The things we have talked about are only the beginning.  Salvation means living in the abundance and the freedom that God has provided. Baptism in water is a commitment to a life of following Jesus.

Giving To God

 

As you mature in your spiritual walk with the Lord, you will find that the Bible is very powerful in all ways.  This includes the area of finances.  Walking with God and obeying the Word in the area of finances is crucial.  God wants to bless your finances.

Prayer

 

One of the most important parts of everyday life for Jesus was prayer.  He constantly kept in touch with the Father.  So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.  (Luke 5:16)

The Bible

 

The Holy Spirit does miraculous things in your life, but He does not just act arbitrarily.  He responds to the Word of God, the Bible.  There is much said in the Bible about how powerful it is.  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

The Holy Spirit

 

Water baptism involves the determination to live a godly life.  When you became a believer, the Holy Spirit started living inside you.  He gave you spiritual life.

Water Baptism

 

One of the first things you might consider doing in your Christian life is being baptized.  By definition this means being submerged in water and brought back up again.

Salvation

 

What does it mean to be saved? What am I saved from? Now that I'm "born again," what does that mean?  In its simplest form, being saved means you are saved from spending eternity in hell away from God. But there is a lot more to it than that.  Salvation begins right now and you can experience the benefits in this life.  Salvation includes freedom from habits that have made you miserable. It means health and healing from any sickness that has plagued you.  It means deliverance from depression into a life of joy and peace.  It means gaining financial freedom.  It means abundant provision for every need that you could ever have.  Salvation encompasses every single part of your life.
