Sometimes when we read our Bibles confusion can take hold of us as we try to understand our lives in relation to the scriptures we are reading.
To overcome this it can often be useful to put the words in a different perspective. As an example I would like to tell you a story that begins with some of the most famous words that never appear in our Bibles.
‘Once upon a time’ there was a young boy.
Scripture states the Most High rules in the kingdom of men [Daniel4:17] declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done [Isaiah 46:10], so we should expect its pages to reveal detailed foreknowledge of World Events, and this has proven to be the case - for example, Bible students as far back as Joseph Mede [1586-1639] and Sir Isaac Newton [1643-1727] wrote that the rebirth of the nation of Israel was foretold in the writings of the Hebrew prophets.
We believe that the Bible is God’s word, given to us as the key to real happiness, not just now, but for ever. It is the Word of Life: an invitation to everlasting life and citizenship of God’s future Kingdom on this earth.
To understand the Bible’s message and enjoy the benefits, we have to read it for ourselves, so the entire King James Version is built into this website, with a reading plan that works through the Bible in three short portions each day, completing the Old Testament once, and the New Testament twice, each year.
