Again - what matters is the reader's ability to spiritually comprehend what is written. Surely we all know this?

You said He has DECREED to communicate solely through the bible. So yes - according to you He "can't" unless you also think God is a liar.

The sad pathetic reality is that what Mike and so many Bibleans call the Church Age IS the age of deception preceding the end times. To our 1st century ancestors these ARE the end times. The Church Age believers ARE the deceived ones. WE who know the LIVING Word of God Jesus Christ are the few holding to the truth of Christ's message of love. It is the Churchians and Bibleans who are worshiping the false God Jehovah of the OT.

If we can't figure out that Lazarus and the Rich Man is a parable, I wonder what else we are misinterpreting. I still read scripture, and the more I study with my SPIRITUAL eyes and ears open, the more excited I become!

The Spirit didn't keep saying, "whoever has ears to hear, let him hear" for nothing. And, even the parables were meant to hide layers of truth from those that Jesus did not want to understand. Yes, that's right, Jesus said He spoke in parables so they COULD NOT UNDERSTAND and be saved (salvaged) at that time.

The Bible speaks of things that even the angels wish to look into, but can't.

There are mysteries yet to unfold.

God has chosen to communicate only through His written word during the church-age. He chose to limit Himself to communicating in that manner. He wiil not change His mind. So in that sense He can't because He cannot change His course once He has decided on a course of action. He self limited Himself, it wasn't forced upon Him.

And so there's no misunderstanding, the Holy Spirit uses the doctrine that has been taken out of the scriptures and transferred into the soul of the believer to guide the believer in his Christian walk.

During the church-age, God does not use prophets, angelic beings, or dreams or visions to communicate His word. Only the Bible.

A believer might ask for guidance in a situation. God will use the doctrine in the soul of the believer to accomplish that guidance.

Please guys, can you all reread your posts that you rapidly type out when you are a bit angry? Keeps a lot of threads from being locked for many reasons..

How does that matter?

Kat, the Bible isn't like a math book. It is living and breathing Jesus Christ in it. That is the mind of Christ. What Christ did, and fulfilled it.

Old Testament Concealed
New Testament Revealed

Folks,

When Paul spoke of the Holy Scriptures, he wasn't talking about the New Testament, he was talking about the Old, and that Christ is the revelation of just that. The mind of Christ. Because he, they whom he spoke to, and ourselves, we all have that revelation now. The Holy Spirit is in Christ, for He is God, in the flesh.
