Or "The Simplicity of SCRIPTURE".

This blog quotes straight Scripture, answering questions that matter, for the salvation of our souls.

Is Scripture really simple?

Oh yes, if you have the heart of a child, knowing nothing, and wanting to know EVERYTHING, your heart will surely be open to Jesus for instruction.

Look what the LORD Jesus says here:

Matthew 18:3 

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, 

and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


And look what the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD taught me to do in the early days.

Taking the very same verse above, studying it, a WORD, or a PHRASE at a time, without breaking the integrity of GOD's WORD. 

I went by "feeling", so here's the result:

Matthew 18:3 

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say 

unto you, 

Except ye 

be converted, 

and become 

as little children, 

ye shall not enter 

into the kingdom 

of heaven.


I found, that's the SECRET of understanding Scripture better.

Let SPIRIT teach you how to study Scripture.

In my case, this is what He taught me:

-- Break it down into smaller pieces.

-- Don't be overwhelmed by the whole.

-- Ask a question, pray to God for an answer, and WAIT.


Waiting has been the missing ingredient in most people.

Be patient.

God always answers PERFECTLY.

And when He does, savor each word.

Savor the divine instruction.

Jesus has always spoken simply to us, even using parables so we may understand better.

Only the fool, the proud, and the hard-hearted prefer to complicate things.

Jesus always spoke simply, and clearly, taking away all fear and confusion.

Whatever question you have in your heart can be answered by Scripture.

You just have to have a desire to know God's ULTIMATE Truth.

From that, from the sincerity of your heart, you will receive the answers.

And always, in a way only you can understand.

Who would have thought that a person like me could understand the Bible easily, when, I used to "circle" around the Bible, not sure HOW to approach God's BOOK, not quite knowing WHICH version to read (there were so many), and not quite knowing HOW to begin, not even sure if I'll understand.

Well, one day last year on 6 September 2019, God knew I was ready to hear His TRUTH -- which is JESUS -- and sent His HOLY SPIRIT, to instruct me.

The HOLY SPIRIT will teach you in a way only you can understand.

It's important to be child-like in your approach to God, that's all.

Only then can you really understand how simple Scripture really is.

Set aside your mind, your pride, self, and focus on God alone.

Set aside the things of the world, and all its distractions.

Study through the sincerity of your heart.

Let's all live, work, love, and pray, for the GLORY of GOD!
