Welcome to the “Sum of Thy Word” where God’s message is sought in a multitude of precepts that He concealed throughout His Word from Genesis to Revelation:
Isaiah 28:9-10 Whom will he teach knowledge? and whom will he make to understand the message? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts? (10) For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing; But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
Jesus also promised us that He would only speak in parables what has been hidden from the foundation of the world:
Matthew 13:34-35All these things spake Jesus in parables unto the multitudes; and without a parable spake he nothing unto them: (35) that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.
This requires us to seek our sufficiency in understanding the scriptures through the Spirit of our Father:
2 Corinthians 3:4-6 And such confidence have we through Christ to God-ward: (5) not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; (6) who also made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
Father concealed the prophecy of His Son throughout the OT prophets as precepts and lines here a little, there a little so that even John the Baptist did not recognize Jesus until the Holy Spirit revealed Him:
John 1:10 & 31-33 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world knew him not….(31) And I knew him not; but that he should be made manifest to Israel, for this cause came I baptizing in water. (32) And John bare witness, saying, I have beheld the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven; and it abode upon him. (33) And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize in water, he said unto me, Upon whomsoever thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and abiding upon him, the same is he that baptizeth in the Holy Spirit.
2 Peter 1:19-21 And we have the word of prophecy made more sure; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day-star arise in your hearts: (20) knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of private interpretation. (21) For no prophecy ever came by the will of man: but men spake from God, being moved by the Holy Spirit.
We must ask ourselves: “Why are there so many doctrinal differences if the Holy Spirit only ever teaches one truth on any given doctrine?”:
John 14:26 But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you.
Many denomination use this very poorly translated passage as justification to divide the scriptures:
KJV~2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
When if fact we were told directly by Jesus to not “break the scriptures”:
John 10:34-36 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (35) If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken), (36) say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
Paul actually said we will only be approved of God if we diligently handle aright the word of truth:
ASV~2 Timothy 2:15 Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth.
We are not to go beyond what is written as so many denominations are doing today but seek out the hidden precepts from Genesis through Revelation and bring them together precept upon associated precept from in our quest to discover the sum of His truth:
1 Corinthians 4:6 Now these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes; that in us ye might learn not to go beyond the things which are written; that no one of you be puffed up for the one against the other.
Paul demanded all the brethren in all his churches think, speak, and teach the same doctrines:
1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, through the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Paul taught the whole counsel of God but warned us that soon after he departed, over 1900 years ago, that men within the church would begin to deviate from the whole counsel thus perverting the truth:
Acts 20:27-30 For I shrank not from declaring unto you the whole counsel of God. (28) Take heed unto yourselves, and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit hath made you bishops, to feed the church of the Lord which he purchased with his own blood. (29) I know that after my departing grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock; (30) and from among your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.
We must never build doctrines on a few selected scriptures that paint only a partial picture but consider every associated scripture to produce the sum of His truth:
2 Timothy 3:16-17 Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness: (17) that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work.
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Psalms 119:160 The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.
Here at the sum of thy Word; all that is asked of you is that you approach each teaching with an open mind only to what our Father’s Word is simply saying as precept upon precept here a little there a little so that you might prevail when we are judged before our Father:
Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment.
1 John 4:1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but prove the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
My promise to you is that I will continue to add more scripture to each teaching already posted as the Holy Spirit leads as well as continue working on several other teachings in draft until they have enough scripture to pass the test as unleavened bread of sincerity and truth:
1 Corinthians 5:7-8Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, even as ye are unleavened. For our passover also hath been sacrificed, even Christ: (8) wherefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
