ONE GLARING YET DISREGARDED REASON WHY PEOPLE READ THE BIBLE AND NOTHING TENDS TO HAPPEN.



And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:15-17

Something suppose to happen, there’s bound to be a change, but no, nothing happens, a change we do not see, the life of the reader, we see remaining the same, even the hearers mind cannot experience a break from its delude. Why? 

THE ENTRANCE OF THE WORD BRINGS LIBERATION. 
Then, how come this days entirely, we tends to see diminutive as touching the change we so much desire to see when we press on in studying or reading the word. How come we tend to see men getting themselves into bounds even when they are supposed to be filled with liberating knowledge from the Living Word? 

The joy divine that often follow an enraptured soul after series of study from the word seems to be shallow and nothing to write home about. “An enraptured Soul; a soul that is filled with great joy and gracious delight most importantly when its path has been straightened or directed by the Living Word. 

We see people gathered to study the Living Word and after series of heated debate and arguments goes back home without getting anything out of the Word. One may ask, is the Spirit of God not one again?.

YOU CANNOT READ THE BIBLE AND STILL REMAIN THE SAME, SEE THIS: FIFTEEN SUBSTANTIAL REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDERS READING THE BIBLE

I sat myself down to understand why: 
David: the word, which is a lamp to David’s feet and a light to his path seems to be something else “a cloak full of bound” to some people these days.
David: the word that hinders David from committing sins and iniquities seems to be something else these days entirely. 

Jesus Christ told the Pharisees that they search the word on daily basis because they believe it gives eternal life; that alone shows the efficacy of the word of God. However, on the part of the Pharisees we see that instead of doing the dictates of that which gives them eternal life, they cannot but do otherwise. Hypocrites Jesus calls them.

The truth is we have more than one reason why many err in the place of the word or find it hard to bring meaning out of it. But for the sake of this article I am going to point out one glaring yet disregarded act that hinders believers from getting meaning out of the word, or read the Bible and nothing happens (you know like; conforming to the image of Christ).

ADDING TO THE WORD
We are meant to study the bible to gain or receive meaning from it, rather, we tends to be adding our own very meaning to the word.

What do I mean: Instead of doing that which the bible says in its original meaning, or as the Spirit interprets its meaning unto us, we tends to ignore and add our own meaning, or remodels its revealed meaning to mean something else. This we do many times to suit our tastes. 

 We tend to give or add to the Bible, even when it is supposed to be otherwise. The place of the Holy Spirit in teaching, reproofing, correcting, and instructing us in righteousness: we often forget and neglect, for this I say, because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, hence every of His dictates are nothing else but the truth. 

However, willingness to pervert justice only to do that which we so much desire (not that we really want the truth),plunged us to err while reading the bible. 

This one other thing have i discovered, we often regard our natural intelligence to supersede: meanwhile, the Word of God is spiritually discern. 

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life. 

1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.

Hence, understanding and bringing meaning out of the word requires the leading of the Spirit and not by any known Dogmatic Intelligence or reasoning. 

Our desire to hear what suits us, and not the actual dictate of the Word plunged us into believing every dictates and doctrines of men rather than the Word. Apostle Paul warns about false teachers: who not only fill people with what they want, but also teaches errors from the Word. 

2 Timothy 4:2-4 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

So, not until we come to the conclusion of considering our intellectual pride (knowledge, wisdom and understanding), to mean nothing before God, and the Word of His Grace, only to take up the wisdom of God as seen in the pages of the scripture and as it is being interpreted into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, The word may not profit us wither, nor blessings and enlightenment received there in. 

This is therefore a call unto us to shun intelligence, every doctrines of men and disavow the acts of bending the truth of the Word in other to suit us. 

More Grace to you.
