The Bible

What is the Bible? 2 Peter 1:21 says men spoke from God while being borne by the Holy Spirit.

They are words from God to men who were borne by the Holy Spirit; these men spoke while being borne by the Holy Spirit, just as a sailboat is blown, borne, and moves with the wind.

Those who wrote the Bible were inspired by and under the power of the Holy Spirit; they were blown and borne by the Holy Spirit to express the word of God; the Bible did not come only from men nor does it express only the ideas of these men; instead, these men wrote the word that came out of God.

2 Timothy 3:16 says “All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” 

The Bible is the breath of God, is something breathed out of the being of God.

Whatever we breathe out is our breath, and this breath proceeds out of our being; so the Bible as the breath of God is something breathed out of the being of God.

The Bible contains the very element of God; God is light, life, love, power, wisdom, and many other items; all these items of what God is have been breathed out into the Bible.

2 Timothy 3:15 says “The sacred writings, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through the faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

“Feeding and drinking, Lord Jesus, of Thee, / Feeding by reading, and drinking by prayer; / Reading and praying, I eat and I drink, / Praying and reading – Lord, Thou art my fare. / Feed me, Lord Jesus, give me to drink, / Fill all my hunger, quench all my thirst; / Flood me with joy, be the strength of my life, / Fill all my hunger, quench all my thirst”.
