Every time you open the Bible there’s something for you to learn. But when you don’t receive God’s Word you begin to fall away. The key passages of this message are:
Jeremiah 37:16-17: (16) When Jeremiah was entered into the dungeon, and into the cabins, and Jeremiah had remained there many days; (17) Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the Lord? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon.
Proverbs 29:18: Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Matthew 16:13-18: (13) When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? (14) And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. (15) He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? (16) And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. (17) And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. (18) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
