Bible Classes

Bible classes are very important. Hosea 4:6 states, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Do we want God to forget our children? Do we want to be destroyed? Do we want to be rejected from being a priest to and for God? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then there is no need to study God’s Word. If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then now is the time to start you own study of God’s Word but also to involve others in a study of God’s Word.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9, “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt w=talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thout liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as forntlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the post of thy house, and o thy gates.” The Israelites of old were to teach their children often, let they forget. They did according to Jeremiah 2:32, “Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? Yet my people have forgotten me days without number.” The problem with not teaching our children is they forget God and His ways. The problems we are having today, which are many, is the results of us not teaching our children what are the commands of God, the promises of God and the blessings of keeping God’s Law

The only way that we can know what God wants us to do is to study God’s Word. Others could tell you what God wants you to do. Many within the church and outside the church rely upon this kind of knowledge. It is second hand knowledge. This kind of knowledge is like those of old of whom it was said, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves” (Matthew 23:15). Again, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone” (Matthew 23:23). We need to know what the Bible says for ourselves and not rely upon someone else’s knowledge to take us to heaven.

To illustrate this point: there was a man who made a prediction about the “rapture.” This man is not the only one but let us just use him as our example. He said that the “rapture” would occur on May 21, 2011 at 6:00 PM Eastern Time. I am not sure if he meant Day Light Saving Time or not; either way this man’s prediction did not come to pass! Many believed him. Many waited to see if the “rapture” would come to pass. What does the Bible have to say about the Second Coming of Christ? There are many false doctrines that have been taught and believed by many about the Second coming of Christ. This is not about what does someone else say, but what does your Bible say about the Coming of Christ again? Jesus said, “Search the scriptures: for in them ye think ye have eternal life: for they are they which testify of me” (John 5:39). We all are to, “…come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).

So let us all come and study together from the Scriptures. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18). You cannot do this by staying out of Bible study! So come and invite others to come with you!
