How to Study the Bible!

1. Pray

Matthew 6:5-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.  And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:Our Father in heaven,Hallowed be Your name.10 Your kingdom come.Your will be doneOn earth as it is in heaven.11 Give us this day our daily bread.12 And forgive us our debts,As we forgive our debtors.13 And do not lead us into temptation,But deliver us from the evil one.For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

2. Order

1 Corinthians 11:3 New King James Version (NKJV)

But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.

Romans 10:6-9New King James Version (NKJV)

But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) or, “‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Matthew 6:33New King James Version (NKJV)

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Note: http://biblehub.com/interlinear/matthew/6-33.htm

Pleas study each word of “Matthew 6:33” to find the Kingdom of Heaven!

2 Peter 1:5-8 New King James Version (NKJV)

But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

3. Precept Upon Precept!

Matthew 17:1-5New King James Version (NKJV)

17 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”

While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”

Note: 1st understand that Moses represents the Torah “The 1st 5 Books”, Elijah represents the “Prophets”,  and Jesus represents the “Gospel” (Good News/ Glad Tidings)! So study at least 10 minutes of Torah, 10 Minutes of the Prophets, and 10 minutes of the Gospels!

Isaiah 28:9-13New King James Version (NKJV)

“Whom will he teach knowledge?
And whom will he make to understand the message?
Those just weaned from milk?
Those just drawn from the breasts?
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept,
Line upon line, line upon line,
Here a little, there a little.”

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue
He will speak to this people,
12 To whom He said, “This is the rest with which
You may cause the weary to rest,”
And, “This is the refreshing”;
Yet they would not hear.
13 But the word of the Lord was to them,
“Precept upon precept, precept upon precept,
Line upon line, line upon line,
Here a little, there a little,”
That they might go and fall backward, and be broken
And snared and caught.

Psalm 119:104 New King James Version (NKJV)

104 Through Your precepts I get understanding;
Therefore I hate every false way.

Psalm 119:128New King James Version (NKJV)

128 Therefore all Your precepts concerning all things
I consider to be right;
I hate every false way.

Ecclesiastes 3:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

A time to love,
    And a time to hate;
A time of war,
    And a time of peace.

Note: Study precepts from an Earthly understanding first starting with Moses, the Prophets, and than Jesus. You must learn to have a righteous hate of things that are not of God!

John 3:12New King James Version (NKJV)

12 If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

4. Spirit of Prophecy

Revelation 19:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

Note: Remember, precept upon precept even with prophecy!

1st Precepts (Torah) #Prophecy

 bereshyt

ב = “Bet/Beth” (House/Tabernacle)

בראשית = “Bereshyt” (In The Beginning) 

בר= “Bar” (Son)

בראשית = the HOUSE of the HIGHEST ONE GOD shall DESTROY by his HAND on the CROSS! #PictorialMeaning

Genesis 1:1New King James Version (NKJV)

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

2nd Precepts (Prophets)#Prophecy

Isaiah 46:10New King James Version (NKJV)

10 Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure,’

 

Isaiah 48:16New King James Version (NKJV)

16 “Come near to Me, hear this:
I have not spoken in secret from the beginning;
From the time that it was, I was there.
And now the Lord God and His Spirit
Have sent Me.”

Proverbs 8:22-36New King James Version (NKJV)

22 “The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old.
23 I have been established from everlasting,
From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.
24 When there were no depths I was brought forth,
When there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills, I was brought forth;
26 While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields,
Or the primal dust of the world.
27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there,
When He drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 When He established the clouds above,
When He strengthened the fountains of the deep,
29 When He assigned to the sea its limit,
So that the waters would not transgress His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth,
30 Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman;
And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,
31 Rejoicing in His inhabited world,
And my delight was with the sons of men.

32 “Now therefore, listen to me, my children,
For blessed are those who keep my ways.
33 Hear instruction and be wise,
And do not disdain it.
34 Blessed is the man who listens to me,
Watching daily at my gates,
Waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoever finds me finds life,
And obtains favor from the Lord;
36 But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul;
All those who hate me love death.”

3rd Precepts (Gospels)#Prophecy

Note: The Hebrew Alphabet “Alef-bet” can be found in a King James bible on Psalms 119 above each paragraph. There’s 22 letters in the Hebrew Alphabet. 8 represents completion and a new beginning. 7 days are not truly complete until the 8th day!  The week starts over on that day so it also represent a new beginning. Psalms 119 has 176 verses divided by 22 Hebrew Letters which equal 8 verses each letter. This chapter is known as a complete chapter! We all start out how the chapter begins normally in life feeling bless striving to follow his ways but normally feel like Psalms 119:176 at some point! This is a good chapter to read if you want to personally rededicate yourself to Jesus and God!

 bereshyt

ב = “Bet/Beth” (House/Tabernacle)

בראשית = “Bereshyt” (In The Beginning) 

בר= “Bar” (Son)

John 1:1-13New King James Version (NKJV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 1:14-18New King James Version (NKJV)

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”

16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

Matthew 16:21-23New King James Version (NKJV)

21 From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.

22 Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”

23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Matthew 27:45-54New King James Version (NKJV)

45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” 48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.

49 The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”

50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

54 So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”

Closing #Prophecy

Ephesians 3:8-13New King James Version (NKJV)

To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; 10 to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, 11 according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him. 13 Therefore I ask that you do not lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

5. Seek Men of Good Reputation!

Acts 6:3-4 New King James Version (NKJV)

Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business; but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”

6. Life Eternal!

John 17:1-5New King James Version (NKJV)

17 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him. And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.

7. Study to show yourself approved!

2 Timothy 2:15King James Version (KJV)

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

Note: Notice I changed from the NKJV to the KJV! A Preacher can influence the reader by different versions of the bible and actually twist the word of YAH! Watch how the name of YAH is removed through versions of bibles! Test all things!

Psalm 68:4King James Version (KJV)

Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him.

Psalm 68:4 New King James Version (NKJV)

Sing to God, sing praises to His name;
Extol Him who rides on the clouds,
By His name YAH,
And rejoice before Him.

Psalm 68:4New Living Translation (NLT)

Sing praises to God and to his name!
    Sing loud praises to him who rides the clouds.
His name is the Lord
    rejoice in his presence!

Note: See?!?!?!? Where did the name of YAH go? Or as you saw Jah? #WARNING

Malachi 2:1-2New King James Version (NKJV)

“And now, O priests, this commandment is for you.
If you will not hear,
And if you will not take it to heart,
To give glory to My name,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“I will send a curse upon you,
And I will curse your blessings.
Yes, I have cursed them already,
Because you do not take it to heart.

Deuteronomy 4:2New King James Version (NKJV)

You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

1 Thessalonians 5:21New King James Version (NKJV)

21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.

Proverbs 15:28New King James Version (NKJV)

28 The heart of the righteous studies how to answer,
But the mouth of the wicked pours forth evil.

Ecclesiastes 12:11-12New King James Version (NKJV)

11 The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars are like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd. 12 And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh.

Note: Study is wearisome so it’s okay to do something you like to do like basketball, playstation, sports, & etc! Your not of the world but you are in this world! It’s okay to function as a normal person being of no reputation like Jesus!

2 Peter 1:19-21New King James Version (NKJV)

19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,  21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

John 5:39New King James Version (NKJV)

39 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.

8. Hebrew, Greek, & Latin!

Luke 23:38New King James Version (NKJV)

38 And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew:

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Romans 1:16New King James Version (NKJV)

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
