13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Let us “twist not a scripture lest we be like the devil” (Paul Washer).The most frequently misused verse in the Bible is without question, Matthew 7:1. Jesus said don’t judge.” And in their pronouncing a person as judgmental, they too have judged.
The Word of God is full of powerful verses that we should meditate on.To meditate is to deeply think through and ponder something.Basically, Moses was not telling the paranoid Israelites to stand firm, he was telling them to remain calm. When we read verses 14 and 15 together it becomes far more clear that what we are being told here is that our reaction to mounting trials should be two fold. The preceding verse, Phillipians provides proper context to verse 13.This all becomes further troubling when you read the next verse (which is never included on the Christian merchandise). In Moses tells the Israelites they need only be still, and in the LORD says to Moses, “move on.” And people have gone and quoted what Moses said here. First, we are to remain calm and remain steadfast in our hearts. Phillipians -13 I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. Matthew 7:1 The mother of all Biblical misrepresentations. God’s Word is the main source for training a godly girl into a godly woman. Encourage your daughter with the Bible so she can grow up to be a strong Christian woman.
who made the heavenly lights, in whom there is no inconsistency or shifting shadow.
The reality is that chapter and verse markings were actually not added to the Bible until over 1500 years after its writing. The portion of the Bible that most closely resembles this oft quoted piece of wisdom is chapter 3 of Ecclesiastes (authored by Solomon), which says: For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die… Lust, desire, greed, and temptation (all forms of want) stem from a lack of trust in God’s promises and a fear that God’s provision will not provide His promised perfect fullness for our lives.
The Bible was never intended to be read one verse at a time. In the Garden of Eden we see sin first enter the world when Adam and Eve fail to trust that God has given them a perfect existence, and wanting the knowledge of God, eat the forbidden fruit. In the Bible Christ calls His followers to properly steward money and other resources for the furthering of the Kingdom of God. Nowhere does the Bible say it is money that is the root of evil.
Often misstated as “Judge not.” or “Jesus said don’t judge.” The most humorous aspect of the misuse of this verse is that it invariable occurs in such a way that the person misusing the verse, in referencing it, actually declares a judgment on the person they feel is being judgmental. Additionally, If you’re perceptive enough you will notice as well that Jesus Himself is passing judgment here on those who improperly judge.
Clearly this interpretation of this verse doesn’t make sense.
The Bible is a comprehensive story, from the beginning of the world to the end – not ending 2000 years ago or in the present, but at the end of the world at the return of Christ. The Bible is a perfectly cohesive collection of 66 books by ~40 authors, and is divinely uniform. After deliberation the sages present him a simple ring bearing the words “This too shall pass.” The great king is humbled by the simple phrase.
