THE SCRIPTURES CANNOT BE BROKEN

THE CRYSTAL SEE - PREFACE
What we know is a drop, what we have not yet discovered is an ocean.
For the past 2,000 years the Hope of Christianity has been and remains on the validity of the Bible being the Word of God. Jesus said very succinctly: “The Scriptures cannot be broken.” The Scriptures, as The Word Of God, lose their power if the Old Testament can be broken away from the New Testament. The New must validate The Old. “The Spirit of prophesy must remain the Testimony of Jesus. The Testimony of Jesus is: “The Father and I are One; The Father is in me and I am in the Father; I was sent and I am come to do the will of my Father who sent me. And as I am so are you, in this world.” These testimonies of Jesus result in the Truth that it is God’s will for every person to discover within him and herself the potential to be their own Messiah, in Christ. From my view, this is the strength of the Scriptures; God is the life in every believer. And as far as I can tell, the Bible is the only Holy Book that sets forth that proposition.
The Crystal Sea Discussion #6: “The Scriptures Cannot Be Broken” (John 10:27)

Jesus prayed, “Our Father, Thy Kingdom come
in earth as it is in Heaven,” in our earth body.
Continuing from “The Crystal Sea #5”... I felt it important to further address the symbolism of The Five Loaves and Two Fishes in the Miracle when Jesus fed the five thousand. I think it is important to understand that the two parts of our Bible MUST be interconnected. The Bible is unique in literature in that it covers 4,000 years of human history without violating the Principle that it is GOD’S Word. There are many ‘human’ writers of the Scriptures, but each confirms that what they wrote was Inspired by God’s Spirit. Ultimately, after 4,000 years from Adam, Jesus personalized and individualized the prophecies. Instead of Scriptures relating to the Nation Israel only, Jesus brought in focus that Father’s Plan was to every individual. Salvation became very personal.
Jesus identified every miraculous ‘Work’ He did as The Father’s Work. Each miracle He performed was to fulfill a prophesy of the Old Testament and to validate God’s Word. The multiplying of food was a second witness to God’s ability to feed the nation Israel 40 years with indescribable Manna. It also fulfilled the ministry of both Elijah and Elisha when they multiplied oil and meal; and when Christ walked on water, He was a second witness to the floating of an ax head (2nd Kings 6:5-6). The healings of the infirmed and the raising of the dead were also affirmations of the events recorded in God’s Old Testament Scriptures.
Jesus said; “Man shall not live by bread alone; but by every word that ‘proceedeth’ out of the mouth of God.” In the context that we have just shared, the Word of God came out of the mouth of Jesus as recorded in John. God is a Spirit and a spirit does not have a larynx. We are to our own body the mouth of God. Bread is identified as a symbol of God’s Word and necessary for Spiritual life. Jesus was not only the Word of God, He was also the bread of life. He was the Breath and the mouth of God, which made Him the Word of God. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Breath and Word are interactive components of spirit life. It was true of Jesus and it is also true of His corporate body.
