My Note: There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Scripture: Proverbs 16:25 ¶There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Remember this when you are establishing doctrine in your mind.
Is it correct doctrine?
Isaiah 31:1 ¶Woe
to them that go down to Egypt for help; and
stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen,
because they are very strong; but they look
not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.
3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
5 As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.
6 ¶Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.
7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.
8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.
9 And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.
sure what you believe is indeed Biblical!
or did you hear/learn it from man?
Did you learn it by reading your Bible with the Holy Spirit's guidance or did you just bring it home from church believing what your Preacher or Sunday School teacher said without checking it out in God's Word.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
