“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth,” 2 Timothy 2:15.
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,” Hebrews 12:1.
“Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness,” 2 Timothy 2:141-16.
“There is much speculation that goes in for My People in this hour.
Many dispute about this thing or that one, and yet how many study My Word.
I have said that My people suffer for their lack of knowledge.
Many of you are led down roads and paths, thinking that this tidbit of information will offer you the solution that you are thinking. You are swayed by so many things.
But to be a true student of my word you must study to show yourself approved. But no, you would rather gather information from this source or that one, thinking that these sources are valid and true.
Look to the rock from which you were hewn. You have no need that anyone would teach you, for I AM your teacher.
For you have a deep heritage, for as you are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, those who came before you endured all kinds of hardship, and yet they persevered to the end.
You have come to that great rock of faith; its roots go deeply into the ground. Draw sustenance knowing that through your ancestral roots that you will derive the strength and resolve to move forward.”
