Rightly Dividing the Scriptures

Where will you spend eternity?

The Bible can be seen as a reflection of our lives. We are born, we live, and we die. Genesis shows the birth of humankind. Revelation shows its end. Or is it?

In Genesis, Satan brought sin into the world—and with sin, death. Revelation shows how sin and death will end so eternal life begins. What a divine paradox. Through Christ, what started with death shall end with an endless life:

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. (Revelation 1:18)

For believers, death will no longer be because

death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20:14)

Along with death and hell, Satan, the Antichrist, the false prophet, and all rebellious nonbelievers will be cast into the lake of fire. Consequently, we should evade such lot. But how?

Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)

Are you studying the Bible? Do you understand it correctly? Are you mixing messages meant for you with the ones not meant for you? Are you incorporating hypothesis, personal interpretations, traditions, or false doctrines? Are you a lukewarm believer?

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. (Revelation 3:16)

This book will serve as a tool to increase your biblical understanding, therefore your faith. Avoid the day of judgment. Don’t be a tepid believer. Understand the Bible correctly, and the right way is by following the advice given by the apostle Paul:

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
