SCRIPTURE – DIVINE REVELATION OF ONENESS
2 Timothy 3: 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
Men moved by Spirit wrote what God wanted written. They did not write what they thought He wanted said, as I might today. This inspiration has a much higher degree of decree. The reason that Scripture is profitable for teaching, for reproof, correction and training in righteousness is because Scripture reveals Jesus, in me and I in Him. As a result I begin to see the inadequacies of the flesh, the influences of the world, and the deceptions of Satan. But this only happens as I focus on Jesus, who resides in me and I in Him.
The more I concentrate on the inadequacies of the flesh, the influences of the world and the deceptions of Satan, the less I experience life in Christ. It is only when my focus is on Jesus and Our life together that I experience of the abundant life in Christ; my purpose for reading Scripture is to focus on Jesus, Father, and Spirit.
