Knowing the Bible inside and out, thinking you have ALL the answers and believing that you are to use it as an instruction manual for your life is NOT necessarily the smartest thing. That does not save you. How do I know this? Because before I was TRULY born again, I was one of those people who thought I was saved because with all my Bible Knowledge, I “thought” I had all the answers that lead me to salvation. Boy was I WRONG! All I had was puffed up pride in me, boasting in my own power to somehow obtain salvation, because of knowing all these scriptures. No cross, no repentance, no resurrection in my testimony. I had a false conversion, and did not even know it. I had taken my salvation in MY OWN HANDS. And instead of worshiping God, I worshiped the bible, thinking every scripture and verse I “happened” to land on was for ME. I took Bible scriptures out of context, misinterpreting those scriptures, and basically tried to work up my own salvation using those scriptures, not realizing that many of those scriptures I read were not even for me. They were written to a particular audience at a particular time, for a particular purpose. What I did was something called “Bibliomancy,” which is witchraft using the Bible…YES, THERE IS SUCH A THING! THE ENEMY IS ALL UP IN THAT! Contrary to what the churches have taught many of us about how to use the Bible, the Bible is NOT meant to be used as a instruction manual for your life. Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit, for HIS guidance will ALWAYS go hand in hand with God’s intended purpose for the Bible.
IF YOU DELIBERATELY MISUSE THE BIBLE TO SEEK ANSWERS TO ANY AND EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE, YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE PRACTICING WITCHCRAFT, AND YOU NEED TO STOP NOW. DO NOT GO OFF FLIPPING THROUGH THE BIBLE TO MAGICALLY LAND ON SCRIPTURES. JUST FOLLOW THE GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Consider this quote by Pam”
“Practically everything I know was acquired by personal experience. Now some may think that personal experience is not the best way to learn spiritual matters and so I am expecting that the bible thumpers will say that you try the spirits by “the word.” You need to know that the enemy knows the word better than we do. The enemy even knows how much YOU know about the bible. So he can line up the experience or communication with scriptures, the way YOU interpret them.” (Pam Sheppard)
So, let’s GET REAL. Who else is/was guilty of this?
