Keys to understanding scripture

1: Pray for Holy Spirit to guide you. Pray for wisdom, revelation, understanding and discernment.

 

2: Read in context.

 

3: Read it according to the culture at the time of writing and the audience it’s being said to.

 

4: Look into original Hebrew and Greek.

 

5: The Law of First Mention: Go to that portion of the Scriptures where a subject first occurs, to establish the meaning of something. Scripture builds on past scripture.

 

6: There are many shadows of things in scripture, history repeating itself. Look for these patterns to deepen understanding about things.

 

7: Don’t cherry pick. When studying a topic, study ALL scripture on that topic. When you’ve interpreted it correctly, all the scripture on the topic will harmonize.

 

8: Pray to bind the devil/demons from hindering you or deceiving you when reading bible.

 

These things make a HUGE difference to the meaning of scriptures. Don’t follow traditions of men, find out the truth for yourself. God bless

  1. This is remarkable information. My New Years Resolution is to have a better understanding of Gods word, so I can have a deeper, more intimate relationship with My Father. I figure if I achieve this, a lot of other areas in my life will also improve on. Such as my gluttony, anger issues I have, self love, and faith. So itโ€™s a win win situation. And this post of yours came at a great time for me. Itโ€™s like you wrote it just for me. Happy New Year, Mel. Much love and God bless you and yours
