  • Mood:

studying the Bible

Last night I wrote about the young fellow who came into the Herrick Public Library used books store yesterday looking for books to help him understand the Bible. I thought I would mention some of the books I have in my main study that I keep near me to look at when I am reading and studying the Holy Scriptures. Most of my library is down in the lower level, but I do keep some books upstairs in my main study to keep me company-

I could list more books that one can buy to enable them to study the Bible. What is important is to read the Bible daily. Pray to the Holy Spirit to enlighten your minds to understand the Word of God the Bible.

"But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it taught you, you will abide in Him" 1 John 2:27
