Some People Say

Some people say that the Apostles teachings, you know the letters of Paul, Peter, James, John etc are not important because Jesus did not say it, so they try to ignore the very fact that God has written the names of the twelve Apostles, on the very foundation stones of the new Jerusalem.

Jesus said to Peter His Apostle endorsing him by saying, “I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,” {Matthew 16 v 18}. Paul said, “Let Him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you, are the commandments of the Lord,” {1 Corinthians 14 v 37}.

Now we must never forget that Jesus dedicated all His authority to His twelve disciples, He said to them, “Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosen in heaven,” {Matthew 18 v 18}.

For He told them “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Ghost”, yes teach all people to obey His commandments. So you see, when we read the letters of the Apostles we must believe that Christ himself is speaking through them to us today.

Let us not demean any of the Holy Scriptures but accept all the teachings of the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation as the very voice of Almighty God for which it is.

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” {2 Timothy 3 v 16}.
