2 Peter 1:20
20 Knowing [ginosko] this [touto] first [proton], that [hoti] no [ou][pas] prophecy [propheteia] of
the scripture [graphe] is [ginomai] of any private [idios]
interpretation [epilusis]. KJV-Interlinear
20 But know this first of all,
that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, NASB
All scripture comes from
God, and from no other source.No man,
no angel, no creature of any type or kind, has ever been the source of any
The scriptures are
truth, and they come only form the source of truth, which is God.They have been written by man, spoken by man,
taught by man, but their origin has never been man.
2 Tim. 3:16-17
16 All Scripture is God
breathed and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction
17 that the man of God
may be mature, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Tim. 2:15
15 Study to show
thyself approved [mature] unto God as a workman who does not need to be
ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Humanity (the world), will
try to confuse the issues of truth, by means of invention of religions,
philosophies, alternate views, debates and so forth of all sorts, but these are
easily dismissed by the person who has some semblance of truth in him or her.
Truth always hold up
under scrutiny.False doctrines always
fail when placed under the microscope (so to speak).
All scripture comes
with the clarity of its meaning, when God provides that meaning.When God does not provide that meaning, then
humanity cannot discover its meaning.
For example, in
Revelation, John was told to seal up certain revelations because they would not
and could not be understood, until the actual date of the end times.Things such as the identity of the
anti-christ will never be known until after the Tribulation actually begins.
Even the last
generation of believers of our own Church Age, will not discover who it might
be.If you think about it, the
anti-christ will most likely be a person who is perhaps 30 to 50 years of
age.We only speculate about that, but
it is a reasonable speculation, as most world leaders are older folks.He is described as dashing and dynamic, so it
is reasonable to presume that he will be a younger man, rather than older.
Anyway, when the Rapture
occurs and all believers are suddenly whisked out of this world, the
anti-christ will have lived during the Church Age for many years.Remember that the Tribulation is only going
to last seven years.No time for a person
to be born and grow up, and rule the world.But believers in those last years of our dispensation, no one will know
his identity.That information is sealed
by God, to be revealed only in the Tribulation.No one will ever be able to break that seal.
This is only one
example.Another example is that you
might consider that many doctrines are not understandable by spiritually young
believers, until they mature and then begin to understand many principles of
doctrine.This is similar to children
who ask questions of adults, that apply to adults.They have to grow up in order to begin to
But in all cases, truth
is not subject to mans convenient interpretations.Truth is not subject to mans compromised
beliefs.Truth is not there as a
cafeteria menu for people to pick and choose what they will or will not
You cannot rationalize
that if something doesn t cause harm to anyone, then it must be ok.The rationalization in itself is a lie of
foolish and voluntary blindness to truth.
You cannot define truth
for yourself.You cannot shape truth to
fit your own beliefs.You cannot invent,
imagine, or force your own beliefs into becoming truth.
A wrong thing done in a
wrong way, is wrong.
A wrong thing done in a
right way, is wrong.
A right thing done in a
wrong way, is wrong.
Only a right thing done
in a right way, is right.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
